ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Former Cleveland High School star catcher Blake Swihart will spend the all-star break in Curve, Penn., playing in the Eastern League All-Star game. Swihart will represent the Portland Sea Dogs. On Sunday, Swihart hit his 10th home run and got a chance to run into a familiar face – former La Cueva and Lobo Scott Gracey.
