Five SeaWolves make Eastern League All-Star team

Double-A Erie earned five selections on the Southern Division All-Star team for the Eastern League All-Star Game July 15 in Trenton. Outfielder Deik Scram and pitcher Josh Rainwater were fan balloting selections, while catcher Alex Avila, outfielder Brennan Boesch and first baseman Ryan Strieby were also named to the club. It’s the third All-Star selection in as many years and at as many levels for Strieby, a Midwest League All-Star at Class A West Michigan in 2007 and a Florida State League selection last year at Class A Lakeland.
