Matt Harvey shut down the Pacific Coast League in his two-inning outing with the International League in a 3-0 loss in Buffalo Wednesday night.

Even though the Major League schedule was silent Wednesday night, the best of the best came together to play for home-field advantage in the Triple-A All Star Game.

The Pacific Coast League won 3-0 over the International League in Buffalo, NY.

It was the 25th anniversary to the first Triple-A All-Star Game held in Buffalo, and the star of the show was Royals prospect Wil Myers.

Myers made a major staple in the game three days after appearing in the All-Star Futures Game in Kansas City.

In Wednesday's game, Myers had an RBI single to cap off a two-run opening inning. Adam Eaton, who is in the Diamondbacks organization and playing for the Reno Aces, singled in the inning then was later brought in by Oklahoma City RedHawks' Mike Hessman.

Myers came back to the plate in the fifth and led off the inning with a double. He later would score off of former National League All-Star Zach Duke.

Matt Harvey, who plays for the hometown Bison, the Mets' Triple-A affiliation, kept the PCL sluggers quiet in-between runs, throwing two scoreless innings.Harvey is ranked as the second-overall prospect in the Mets organization.

On the other side, eleven PCL pitchers combined for a five-hitter that included 11 strikeouts on the night. Graham Godfrey received the official win for the PCL. Godfrey plays for the A's-affiliated Sacramento River Cats.

The PCL receives home-field advantage for the Triple-A National Championship Sept. 18 in Durham.

Next year's All-Star Game will be in Reno, Nev., home of the Aces.
