    Albuquerque Isotopes infielder Cristhian Adames promptly mashed the first pitch he saw in Wednesday night’s Triple-A All-Star Game over the left field wall for a solo home run at Werner Park in Papillion, Neb.

    A three-run ninth inning propelled the International League to a 4-3 win. The IL struck first with a run in the top of the first, and it wasn’t until Adames’ sixth-inning home run that the Pacific Coast League’s offense got on the board.
