American League Tops National League

Derek Jeter has been the face of Major League Baseball for two decades,
while the torchbearer for the unofficial title as the game's best player has
fluctuated between Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout. Those storylines proved no
different Tuesday, as the future Hall-of-Fame shortstop and peerless
sluggers combined forces in the 85th Midsummer Classic to power the American
League to a 5-3 victory over the National League in front of a capacity
crowd at Target Field. Cabrera belted a two-run homer in the first inning,
while Trout doubled, tripled, drove in two runs and scored another to help
give the Junior Circuit home field advantage for this year's World Series.
Trout took home the MVP award, but all eyes were nevertheless focused on
Jeter, who delivered two hits and scored a run out of the AL's leadoff spot
in what will be his 14th and final All-Star Game with retirement looming at
the end of the season. Jonathan Lucroy hit a pair of RBI doubles to pace the
NL, which went 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position and has dropped
back-to-back All-Star Games on the heels of a three-game winning streak.
Both Cardinals pitchers gave up runs as the National League fell to the American League 5-3. Adam Wainwright started on the hill and gave up three-runs in his lone inning of work. Pat Neshek was tagged for two runs on three hits in a-third of an inning for the loss. Matt Carpenter did not make an appearance in the game.

Recently released statistics show that immigration to the United States has accounted for 82% of the population growth over the past 8 years.

This may be an alarming fact to a number of people, especially conservatives who do not trust President Obama on this issue. The fact is, however, that this trend has been going on for decades.
