Boxberger Perfect for AFL Rising Stars

Brad Boxberger and the AFL West Rising Stars blew out the East Rising Stars yesterday by a score of 11-2. Boxberger did exactly what you would expect him to do, throwing a perfect inning, including a strikeout of Washington Nationals' super prospect Bryce Harper. He got his other two outs via a fly out and a ground out. He threw 17 pitches, 13 of them for strikes. This kid continues to impress and hopefully he can live up to the hype and one day anchor the back of the Reds' bullpen, as they continue their quest to win another NL Central Title.

*Yasmani Grandal was also selected to be part of the AFL Rising Stars game, but was unable to go due to his recent finger injury which has resulted in him being shut down for the rest of the AFL season.
