LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) _ Josh Anderson's third-inning groundout off Tulsa's Juan Morillo scored Kevin Melillo for the game's only run as the South Division beat the North Division 1-to-0 in the Texas League All-Star game.

Starter Juan Gutierrez pitched two perfect innings to earn the win for the South. Jailen Peguero, his Corpus Christi teammate, pitched the ninth for the save, striking out two last night.

Wichita's Alex Gordon, the Number 2 overall pick in the 2005 draft by the Kansas City Royals, went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

Morillo suffered the loss after allowing one hit in his only inning of work.

Each team had four hits. The North struck out 12 times, and the South struck out 10 times.
