Pitching, Pitching, Pitching Puts NL Over AL

In the new “Era of the Pitcher”, how fitting was it that this contest was dominated by one big bomb (from Prince Fielder) and suffocating hurling from the NL mound studs.  The AL fared okay, but without their big horses to match up, the NL just had too much firepower coming from that mound.

On the Twins front, Michael Cuddyer saw one pitch…and flied out to shallow right field.  He also played two innings at first base.  Not all that spectacular, but I’m sure a thrill for him nonetheless.

I always look forward to the Midsummer Classic each year, and this one (despite a lackluster AL performance) didn’t disappoint.

On to the second half!
