Britton saves All-Star game for American League

The Associated Press Chris Sale was named the starting pitcher for the American League club at the MLB All Star Game

Cabrera entered the game in the top of the seventh inning at first base for Hosmer, who went 2-for-3 with two RBI.

"That kind of got blown out of proportion", Bumgarner said.

"I'm not trying to make excuses, but sometimes you get up and you don't feel well", Cueto said through a translator. "I never thought I would be an All-Star and then to do it twice, in back-to-back years". The NL won the first game in the city 7-3 in 1978 with Garvey named MVP.

Manfred says "pace of play for me is like dandelions in your front lawn". They are baseball players just like me. As MVP, Hosmer got to choose between a truck and a Camaro.

But make no mistake: this is what those who crave a changing of baseball have wanted. So MLB...Maybe you should go back to the drawing board again on this one again with the new CBA! All he knows is that he's glad Hosmer is on his side.

"He's just taking his game to that next level", Yost said.

Hosmer isn't alone in that regard. 332 with 22 home runs and 72 RBIs to anchor a roster that features former MVPs Miguel Cabrera and Josh Donaldson along with the major's home run leader (Baltimore's Mark Trumbo, 28) all coming off the bench. Bryant had been 0-for-6 with six strikeouts in his career against the White Sox left-hander.

No John Deere Classic for Spieth after dropping Olympics
You do have to put your health and your family first and I like to think the golfers are skipping Rio , not the Olympics. Spieth's stock has risen sharply in the past year after he won the Masters and U.S.

The lead didn't last long. Unlike his counterpart Chris Sale, he escaped the 1st inning unscathed, allowing just a one-out base hit to the Angels' Mike Trout. First baseman Eric Hosmer hit a solo shot with one out to tie it at one apiece and after a single from Boston's Mookie Betts, K.C. catcher Salvador Perez went deep for a two-run jack. As the Boston slugger made his way through the scrum of players, he wrapped his Red Sox teammate Jackie Bradley a bear hug and lifted him off the ground. He was named an All-Star ambassador, and then played his way into All-Star consideration by hitting 11 home runs in June.

"I think his numbers speak for themselves", N.L. manager Terry Collins (Mets) said.

"At about 5:15", he said, quoting the local start time of Tuesday night's the All-Star Game. "I wasn't able to do the job...."

Considering Sale (14-3, 3.38 ERA) and Cueto (13-1, 2.47 ERA) are the lone hurlers with more than 12 wins this season, sending them to start Tuesday's tilt at San Diego's Petco Park was a logical choice for both All-Star managers. "But it would be better if we were winning or playing better as a team", said Duvall, whose Cincinnati Reds are 32-57.

"I've had a lot of good mentors and coaches along the way to get me to where I am", he said. It's not an excuse.

"When Bum takes the mound you know you are going to win the game", Posey said of the Giants' ace. Marcell Ozuna cut the gap with a run-scoring single off Aaron Sanchez in the fourth.

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz drew a one-out walk before being relieved in his final All-Star Game appearance. Scherzer worked a scoreless inning. "But that's the fun of the All-Star game". The AL has claimed wins in 16 of the past 20 years, per ESPN. The AL will have an opportunity to even the series next year at the 2017 All-Star Game in Miami. Young fans will fall in love with these group of young players while older fans see familiarity disappear. "(Fernandez) told me he was going to throw me a fastball and the first pitch was a changeup", Ortiz said. Before the game, the entire league takes the "All-Star Break" a day before and after the All-Star Game, meaning that regular season games are put on hold so the all-stars can prepare without their regular team being hindered by their absence.
