Wow, the National League can’t catch a break in the All Star Game, huh? Reliever Trevor Hoffman snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by blowing a save in the 9th with the American League down to its last strike. A triple, two runs and an appearance by our beloved Mariano Rivera and the AL had sown up its ninth victory since 1997.
I had to suffer through 11 wins in a row by the NL when I was growing up. It’s all good.
