American League 4
National League 3
and this guy stole the show

All baseball eyes were on St. Louis, MO last night as the American League met the National League on their turf for the 80th mid-year All Star Game between each league's elite players. Teams forgot rivalries for a night as they battled for their leagues advantage when the World Series comes around in October. Five Red Sox players made the trip, while the rest of the lads got to take a few days off. Only Papelbon, Youklis and Bay got to play, as Beckett and Wakefield were being saved for any needed extra inning rescue. Fortunately, that did not happen. Of course, just getting chosen is the real deal.......
It was the talk of the breakfast guests this morning as we had Cardinals fans and Brewers fans circling the table, but Don and I were careful not to remind them that they lost.............
