June 19, 2012|By Eduardo A. Encina | The Baltimore Sun

Single-A Delmarva infielder Nicky Delmonico was named the Most Valuable Player of tonight's South Atlantic League All-Star Game in Charleston, S.C.

Delmonico, the Orioles' No. 6-ranked prospect by Baseball America, played a key role in the North's 3-2 win, going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored.

The 19-year-old Delmonico hit a one-out infield single to shortstop in the fifth inning, then scored two batters later on Kevan Smith's RBI double to left.

Delmonico then laced a one-out double to right, moving to third on an error by South second baseman Delino DeShields. He scored one batter later on Hanser Alberto's single to center field.

On the season, Delmonico -- the Orioles' sixth-round pick last season out of Farragut High in Knoxville, Tenn. -- is hitting .262/.360/.418 with 19 doubles, 6 homers and 43 RBIs in 65 games for the Shorebirds so far this season.
