Yawn ... Thrilling Moments From The All-Star Game: American League 4, National League 3 (15 Innings)
Update: Evan Longoria hit a ground-rule double in the eighth to tie it for the AL, 3-3.
Bottom 10th: Dan Uggla makes consecutive fielding errors along with an intentional walk of Carlos Guilen by Aaron Cook load the bases, but Cook gets the first out of the 10th on a 4-1 fielder's choice. A 5-2 play on Evan Longoria's infield bouncer gets Cook one out closer; Justin Morneau bounces out to short to end it.
Bottom 11th: With one out and men on first and second, and most importantly, Dioner Navarro at second, Michael Young singles up the middle. Nate McLouth sent a bullet to Russell Martin, who tagged a slow-running Navarro for the second out. Carlos Quentin rolled out to third to end the frame.
Bottom 15th: Brad Lidge blows the non-save and the game finally, mercifully ends as Michael Young hits a bases-loaded sac fly. The AL gets home field advantage again.
