American League Loses All-Star Game 5 to 1

Who knows how different the World Series would have been last year, if the American League had won home-field advantage. Unfortunately this season won’t be any different. The only run scored in the game by the American League came from former-Ranger Adrian Gonzalez on a solo home-run.

C. J. Wilson gave up a three-run homer to Prince Fielder, definitely disappointing to have that come from a Rangers’ pitcher – but it least it wasn’t in a game that counted. Oh wait…it does count.

Josh Hamilton was 1 for 2 on the night with a single, and Adrian Beltre was also 1 for 2 with a  single.

Alexi Ogando pitched two outs in the eighth inning, he did very well. It felt like Ron was careful how much he let Ogando throw.

Michael Young led off the ninth inning with a strikeout.

That was the ballgame, at least as far as the Texas Rangers were concerned. Not sure about you guys, but I’m ready to get back to regular baseball. Congrats again to all of the Texas Rangers’ All-Stars!
