AL Beats NL In 84th All-Star Game

Mariano Rivera and the rest of the American League pitching staff hung a
three-hit shutout on the National League in a brisk 3-0 victory in the 84th
edition of the All-Star Game. The crowd at Citi Field sat through a pitchers'
duel Tuesday, with six AL hurlers making perfect appearances, including
Rivera, who tossed a flawless eighth inning in his 13th and final Midsummer
Classic. For his efforts, Rivera became the first reliever to win the outright
MVP award and first pitcher to do so since Pedro Martinez in 1999. White Sox
left-hander Chris Sale breezed through two frames to earn the win, while Jason
Kipnis, Jose Bautista and J.J. Hardy each contributed an RBI in the victory.
The outcome ended the NL's three-game winning streak, gave the Junior Circuit
home-field advantage for the World Series and marked the first time the Senior
Circuit had been shut out since 1990.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
