A.L. Continues Winning Streak in ASG

The American League won the All-Star Game again and secured home field advantage for the World Series. There were 6 members of the Red Sox on the A.L. All-Star Team but only 3 of them saw action. Jason Bay went 1-2 with a walk in the game, Youk was 1-1 as a pinch hitter and Papelbon earned the win even though he almost gave up a home run that would have tied the game. Carl Crawford made a great catch to preserve the victory for the A.L. and save Paps' bacon. Wake and Beckett did not get into the game.

A.L. Wins 4-3 BOX SCORE

Pap almost gave up two bombs. But they look like outs in the box score. Which is what would count if it counted.

Pap owes Carl Crawford a beer...and then some. And if that ball had gotten out, it wouldn't have tied the game..the game was tied at that point, Pap would have been in line to get the L, not the W.

I just love the irony that Mo got the save to give Pap the win. Things we never thought we would say.

It's too bad Wake didn't get into the game...given it was his first all star appearance and his chances aren't great for getting in again. However, many in RSN are livid at Joe Maddon. I am not. I understand and respect his decision. If each pitcher gets through his inning clean...not everyone can pitch and Wake and his knuckleball is not something you wanna toy with in a close game.
