For the second straight season, the All-Star Game was a shutout, but this time the game went to the American League 3-0 over the National League at Citi Field in New York City.The story was of course Yankees closer and future Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera, who received a standing ovation while coming out for the 8th inning.  Mo tipped his cap to the fans in his last All-Star appearance and both player sides stood and clapped for the baseball legend.  Rivera went 1-2-3 and earned MVP honors.

Mets ace Matt Harvey, pitching in front of his home fans, gave up a leadoff double to Mike Trout and hit Robinson Cano, but managed to get out of the jam.  His final line:  2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 3 SO.

The American League runs came off a sacrifice fly, a fielder’s choice and and a ground rule double off the bats of Jose Bautista, J.J. Hardy and Jason Kipnis, respectively.

The American League will have home field advantage in the World Series.  22 of the last 27 league winners in the All-Star Game have gone on to win the Fall Classic.
