Former Arizona Wildcats star Preston Guilmet earned the save as the International League beat the Pacific Coast League 4-3 at the Triple-A All-Star Game in Reno, Nev., on Wednesday night.

Guilmet, who was a starter during his days with the Wildcats and made his big-league debut with Cleveland last week, retired the only batter he faced. He got Tuffy Gosewisch to ground out to third to end the game.

Guilmet has 17 saves for the Columbus Clippers this season.

Another former Wildcat, Jason Stoffel, pitched a hitless inning for the PCL side. Stoffel, who is in the Houston Astros organization, had a walk and a strikeout.

Tucson Padres second baseman Dean Anna came on as a defensive replacement in the sixth inning and went 0 for 2, grounding out to shortstop both times.

Six of the game's seven runs were scored in the first two innings.

Tony Sanchez hit a three-run homer in the second inning to give the International League a 4-2 lead.

The PCL pulled within a run in the fourth when Johnny Monell's ground out to first scored Michael Choice.
