Photos of the eight Springfield Texas League All-Stars in action this past Wednesday night in Midland, Texas.

The St. Louis Cardinals Double-A affiliate, the Springfield Cardinals, had eight players in the Texas League All-Star Game. The contest was held Wednesday, June 30 in Midland, Texas. The South Division defeated the North by a 5-4 score.

Despite being on the losing end, the Cardinals did their best to show off their skills.

Outfielder Aaron Luna, since promoted to Memphis, participated in the home run derby. Not hitting any out shouldn’t be an embarrassment. After all, Roger Clemens was pitching.

In the game, starting left fielder Luna went 1-for-2 with a run scored. He also committed a throwing error.

Starting catcher Steven Hill struck out twice in three at-bats. Two bases were stolen against him.

Curt Smith played the entire game at first base.

Smith went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI and run scored.

What would have been another extra-base hit for Smith was taken away by a fielding gem in the outfield.

Outfielder Adron Chambers had a rough go, fanning twice in two at-bats while stranding four runners.

Third baseman Matt Carpenter went 0-for-2 with a strikeout.

Blake King yielded three runs on two hits, two walks and a wild pitch in one inning of work.

King took the loss for the North.

Brian Broderick followed King and pitched a perfect fifth.

Broderick fanned two of the three batters he faced.

Adam Reifer repeated Broderick’s exact results in the sixth.
