NEWARK -- All season long, the general consensus has been that the teams in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League's East Division have been superior to their peers in the West Division.

Wednesday's third annual All-Star Game did nothing to disparage that line of thinking.

The East won the game, 7-3, as all seven of the Mohawks' all-stars participated and contributed on the field, while head coach Keith Griffin led his squad to the victory. Amsterdam's Mike Urbanski took the win on the mound, as he pitched a perfect fourth inning with one strikeout.

So far this season, teams in the PGCBL East Division are a combined 104-88, while the West Division's clubs are 89-105.

Amsterdam's Matt Snyder started the game for the East Division and tossed one inning. Snyder allowed two runs -- one earned -- while he struck out one.

Also in the first inning, Amsterdam's Dylan Smith had an RBI single.

Fellow Amsterdam all-stars Kyle Barrett, Jordan Ebert, John Nogowski and John Sansone each had a hit. Both Barrett and Sansone also scored a run for the East, while Barrett also was hit by a pitch during his stay in the contest.

Mohawk Valley's Mike Fischer was named the game's most valuable player. The DiamondDawg hit a solo home run in the second inning, as he went 2-for-2 with a walk.

Smith was the Mohawks' entry in the night's home run derby, but the Auburn product was unable to produce any round-trippers. Albany's Matt Dacey won the derby with five home runs.

The Mohawks return to action tonight in Elmira.
