Ryan Patterson

Posted Aug 17, 2005

The top four offensive players for the Auburn Doubledays were named as members of the first NY-Penn League All-Star team. The game will be played on August 23, in KeySpan Park.

Ryan Patterson, who is tied for second in the NY-Penn League with ten home runs, will be playing in his first All-Star game as a professional, just two months after being drafted in the fourth round. Patterson has forty-eight runs batted in and is hitting .337 in 208 at bats.

Cory Patton, who is tied with Patterson with ten home runs, will be the second outfielder representing the Doubledays. Patton is hitting .293 in 164 at bats, and has driven in thirty-one runs this season.

Jermy Acey was selected as a member of the American League Team infielder. Acey is hitting .319 with four home runs, fifteen runs batted in and has scored twenty runs.

Brian Bormaster was selected as one of two catchers. The second year player is hitting .279 with a home run and fifteen runs batted in.

No pitchers were selected from the Doubledays, despite the fact that Paul Phillips is 2-1 with a 1.82 ERA with seven saves, ranking him fourth in the league. Two starters that could be considered “All-Star snubs" were Eric Fowler who is 4-1 with a 2.61 ERA and Robert Ray, who is 2-1 with a 2.57 ERA.

Auburn hold the top spot with a 32-23 record, and four games in front of Mahoning Valley in the Pinckney Division.
