Former Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun baseball standout Jonathan Lucroy had a memorable Major League Baseball All-Star Game debut on Tuesday night, going 2-for-2 with two doubles, while driving home two runs, at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The 28-year old Lucroy, who played for the Cajuns from 2005-2007, and is now the starting catcher for the National League Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers, started the All-Star Game for the National League, following an injury to St. Louis Cardinals’ catcher Yadier Molina.

A native of Eustis, Florida, Lucroy doubled to left-center off of Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester in the top half of the second inning, in his first-ever All-Star Game at-bat, scoring second baseman Chase Utley of the Philadelphia Phillies, trimming the AL lead to 3-2 in the process.

Later, in the top half of the fourth inning, Lucroy, facing Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox, doubled off the right-field wall, scoring Los Angeles Dodgers’ infielder Dee Gordon in the process, to tie the game, 3-3, at the time.

The American League went on to win, 5-3, but it was an impressive All-Star Game debut by Lucroy, a third-round selection by the Brewers in the 2007 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.

For the season, Lucroy is hitting a .315 with nine home runs and 44 runs batted in.
