American League takes Season 10 All-Star game victory


Both teams have now won 5 games in All-Star game history
With both the A.L. and N.L. having won 83 games so far this season in inter-league play, the All-Star game was predicted to be a tightly contested match.

The game lived up to that billing, as the American League won a close 3-2 contest that featured only 9 total hits.

In the bottom of the 2nd inning the N.L. took the lead when Babe Ruth led off with a double against A.L. starter Chris Sale. Josh Hamilton then drew a walk before Scott Rolen singled in Ruth. Nap Lajoie then hit into a fielder's choice, scoring Hamilton.

N.L. starter Jack Pfiester had a perfect game through 3 innings, but surrendered a lead-off single to Tris Speaker in the 4th. Addie Joss came into the game and gave up an RBI triple to Jesse Burkett. Lou Gehrig hit into a groundout scoring Burkett and the game was tied 2-2.

In the top of the 5th, Chase Utley led off with a walk, driving Joss from the game in favor of Tom Henke. After recording one out, Mike Piazza took advantage of a Henke mistake and tripled in Utley to give the A.L. a 3-2 lead.

In the bottom of the 7th, the N.L. threatened after Babe Ruth hit another double, but reliever Takashi Saito retired the next 3 batters to keep the N.L. off the board.

The American League bullpen was stingy tonight and Chicago Southpaw Ted Abernathy, who barely qualifed for the game with 30 IP on the season, recorded the final 5 outs for the save.

Robb Nen was credited with the victory and Addie Joss got the loss.

Jesse Burkett with his triple, run scored and RBI was named the game's MVP.

22 of the 28 American League players got into the game, while 19 of the National League players saw game action.
