AL­LEN­TOWN, Pa. — Round Rock Ex­press pitcher Josh Banks al­lowed two runs in the sixth in­ning, giv­ing the In­ter­na­tional League a 2-1 come­back vic­tory over the Pa­cific Coast League on Wed­nes­day night at the Triple-A All-Star game.

The IL has de­feated the PCL in six of the last eight All-Star games, and holds a 7- 6 lead since the se­ries be­gan in 1998.

En­ter­ing the sixth with a 1-0 lead, Banks gave up a lead­off dou­ble to Louisville’s Chris Valaika. With one out, Syra­cuse’s Chase Lam­bin dou­bled to score Valaika. Durham’s El­liot John­son then sin­gled to bring home Lam­bin.

Banks, who took the loss, al­lowed two runs and three hits in his only in­ning.

Rochester’s An­thony Slama worked a spot­less top of the sixth in­ning for the vic­tory.
