SAUGERTIES — A two-run eighth inning by the Western Division All-Stars tied up the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League All-Star game at 5-5, which after a scoreless ninth inning proved to be the final score.
Derek Kasperzyk and Kenny Sysyn represented the Watertown Rapids in the All-Star game and Vincent DeRubeis represented the Rapids in the home run derby which was won by Trae Harmon of the Elmira Pioneers.
Kasperzyk was 1-for-2 in the game with a double and an RBI that came on a walk in the eighth inning. Sysyn pitched an inning and didn’t let up a walk or a hit.
The Rapids (13-19) will continue their season with a 6:15 p.m. game today at Adirondack. They currently sit in third place in the West Division, trailing first-place Utica by 8 1/2 games.
