Tuesday was just another night at the ball park for Brett Phillips.
The Biloxi Shucker outfielder went 1-for-3 with a run scored in the South's 5-1 win over the North in the Southern League All-Star Game at Trustmark Park in front of an announced crowd of 4,172.
This was Phillips third all-star game.
"It was a lot of fun. To go out there and play with a bunch of guys you play against every night is a lot of fun and over the last couple of days you actually get to know people," Phillips said. "It was an absolute honor to get selected for this game for the third time. The guys played great and I enjoyed it."
All of the offense came in the fifth inning for the South All-Stars and it came on two hits from Pensacola Blue Wahoos. Brandon Dixon had a RBI infield single down the third base line and Phillip Ervin hit a towering grand slam to left center field to cap the South’s scoring for the night.
Biloxi first baseman Garrett Cooper went 1-for-2 with a single to center field and made a nice play at first base on a chopped grounder that stole a hit from Montgomery's Casey Gillaspie.
Biloxi catcher Jacob Nottingham went 0-for-2 at the plate, but did throw out Montgomery's Willy Adames at second base trying to steal in the second inning.
Pitcher Stephen Peterson pitched a perfect sixth inning. Tristan Archer did not play.
Mississippi shortstop and Atlanta Braves super prospect Dansby Swanson led the South with two hits. Adames and fellow Biscuit Kean Wong led the North with two hits.
Former Arkansas ace and current Blue Wahoo Barrett Astin earned the win with a scoreless fifth.
The Shuckers have Wednesday off before opening the second half Thursday with a 7:10 p.m. first pitch against the Montgomery Biscuits at MGM Park.
