Dodgers prospect Joc Pederson homers in Triple-A All-Star Game [video].

A solo home run by Dodgers prospect Joc Pederson got the Pacific Coast League on the board, but wasn’t enough to thwart defeat in the Triple-A All-Star Game on Wednesday in Durham, North Carolina.

Pederson hit a 91-mph fastball from right-hander Ruben Gotay deep to right-center field in the International League’s 7-3 win. The 22-year-old center fielder, the only Dodgers prospect in the game, went 1 for 3 with a walk.

In 79 games with Albuquerque this season, Pederson is hitting .324 with 13 doubles, four triples, 17 home runs and 43 RBIs. He leads the PCL with a .445 on-base percentage.
