It's 3-2 American League at the seventh-inning stretch and I've got to make an escape to a workroom: It's starting to rain and I'm not under cover.
Tampa Bay's Carl Crawford belted a two-out solo homer in the top of the sixth on a full-count pitch from Milwaukee's Francisco Cordero to make it 3-1. The National League got that run back in the bottom of the sixth, and it looked for a split-second like we might have two inside-the-parkers in two innings after none in the first 77 games in all-star history!
New York's Carlos Beltran belted a rocket to right and the carom again tormented an outfielder with Vlad Guerrero looking silly. It was closer to him than Suzuki's ball was to Griffey and Guerrero was able to hold Beltran at third. Griffey drove him in with a line drive sacrifice fly.
