National League All-Stars victorious in the Mid-Summer's Classic


The Senior Circuit took an early lead and hung on
With the National League claiming 4 of the top 5 Power Ranking teams at mid-season, it seemed only fitting in the bottom of the 2nd inning, that the NL squad loaded the bases with 1 out. Dolph Camilli drove in 2 runs with a double, and Brian Giles followed with a 2-run double as well. With 4 early runs, it seemed like a blowout may be in the makings, but the A.L. pitchers would only allow one more hit to the home team the rest of the way.

For a while it seemed as if we may actually have had a no-hit attempt in an All-Star game, but when Addie Joss gave up a single to open the 4th inning, he was lifted to a great ovation, with a longer-than-normal 3 innings of All-Star work under his belt.

With the NL offense solved, the A.L. went to work on chipping away at the lead. While that 4th inning leadoff single didn't lead to any runs, Hanley Ramirez's leadoff solo home run in the 5th trimmed the lead to 3.

In the top of the 7th inning, the Junior Circuit started another inning strong with a leadoff single from Miguel Cabrera and a walk to Ramirez. Al Kaline followed with an RBI single, and when Vladimir Guerrero hit into a double-play, Ramirez scored also.

Down by just a run, Eddie Collins doubled for the A.L. with 1 out in the 8th inning, but was stranded there when Rafael Soriano got pinch-hitter Paul Konerko to ground out, and Lou Gehrig to pop out.

Al Downing entered the game for the N.L. in the 9th, in the unfamiliar territory of trying to pick up the save. With Cabrera, Ramirez, and Kaline due up, it seemed as if Downing would have issues, but a 1-2-3 inning (fly out, ground out, strike out) sent the National League crowd home happy with a 4-3 victory.

Brian Giles with his 1st inning single, 2nd inning 2-run double, and 4th inning base on balls was named the game's MVP.

23 of the 28 NL players appeared in the game, while 20 AL players saw action.
