Former Washington State pitcher Adam Conley was selected to start the Triple-A All-Star Game for the Pacific Coast League and former Cougar third baseman Nick Tanielu started for the West in the Single-A Midwest League All-Star Game.
Conley, a second-round pick by the Miami Marlins in 2011, owns an 8-2 record with a 2.33 ERA and 62 strikeouts over 89 innings in 15 Triple-A starts for New Orleans this season. The lefty from Olympia made his major league debut with Miami earlier in June, pitching a scoreless inning of relief on June 10.
Tanielu, a 14th-round draft pick by the Houston Astros in 2014, was selected for the West after hitting .304 with two home runs, 13 doubles and 34 RBI in 65 games for Single-A Quad Cities.
