   Granberg's first dinger, a two-run blast, came in the bottom of the first inning to make it 2-0 South Division. The second one, a solo shot, came later to make it 3-1.

   Granberg came into the All-Star Game third in the WCL with eight home runs. Devlin is also second in slugging percentage, seventh in batting average, eighth in on-base percentage and ninth in runs batted in.
