Ichiro Suzuki
The National league got off to the better start in this year’s MLB All Star Game, but the American League had the last laugh coming away with the victory. The final score was 5-4, with Ichiro hitting the first ever inside the park home run in the All Star Game history. Home Runs were also hit by Victor Martinez, Carl Crawford, and Alfonso Soriano. Ken Griffey Jr. also had the first two runs batted in for the National league. The win went to Josh Beckett, and the loss went to San Diego Padres pitcher Chris Young. Barry bonds was lifted from left field in the fourth inning after going 0-2. He predicted that he would go hitless, because of the part he attended the night before.

“Forgive me when I go 0-for-5. The party was more fun,” Bonds said before Tuesday night’s All-Star game. “I don’t stay up past 11 or 12 ‘cause I get up and train every morning.”

However he still did claim to have a great night at the All Star Game.

“I’m lost for words with it,” Bonds said. “There’s too many emotions to be able to explain it. This is my family who I grew up with for a lot of years. All I can do is say, ‘thank you.”
