In pro baseball, the American Association All-Stars lost 3-2 to the Can-Am League All-Stars; the game was played Tuesday evening in Ottawa, Canada.

Wichita Wingnuts outfielder Harrison Kain was in the starting lineup for the American Association; Kain was 1-for-3 at the plate, with a stolen base.

The starting designated hitter for the American Association was Matt Chavez of the Wingnuts, the league's leader in runs batted in. Chavez drove in a run at the All-Star Game, going 1-for-4 at the plate.

After two days off during the All-Star break, the first-place Wingnuts resume their long road trip during the annual National Baseball Congress World Series. The Wingnuts begin a four-game series on Wednesday night in Cleburne, Texas, taking on the second-place Railroaders.

Wichita has the second-best record in the American Association, and a whopping 13-game lead over Cleburne atop the South Division.
