An affair to remember

Evening charged with emotion, drama ends in AL win

It has been said that good pitching will always prevail over good hitting. Tuesday night's All-Star Game was no exception as hometown hero Pedro Martinez was unhittable. In his two innings of work, the Boston Red Sox ace struck out five of the six hitters he faced to uproarious applause in leading the American League over the Nationals 4-1 for its third straight win.
