One day after winning the Home Run Derby, Minnesota's Justin Morneau scored the winning run in the All-Star Game on Tuesday night as he scored from third on a sacrifice fly by Texas' Michael Young to lift the American League to a 4-3 victory in 15 innings. The AL is 11-0-1 in the last 12 midsummer classics.
Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla set an All-Star record no player wants to have, becoming the first player to make three errors in the game's history - booting two in the 10th and one in the 13th as the American League beat the National League 4-3 in 15 innings Tuesday night. Nomar Garciaparra was the last player to make two errors - in the 2000 All-Star Game. Former Yankees second baseman Willie Randolph was the last player before Garciaparra to boot two, in 1980.
The AL ran wild on the base paths in Tuesday night's 4-3 victory in 15 innings, stealing a record six bases in the All-Star game at Yankee Stadium. The previous mark belonged to the AL, which swiped five in a 13-8 victory in 1998, at Coors Field. Texas' Milton Bradely, Ian Kinsler and Joey Hamilton, the Yankees' Derek Jeter, Cleveland's Grady Sizemore and Boston's J.D. Drew each had one swipe. Houston's Miguel Tejada stole second for the NL in the eighth inning - giving the teams a combined seven steals to set an All-Star game record, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

``It was just crazy how it seemed like it lasted forever. It was the last year for Yankee Stadium, the last All-Star game, and it's kind of fitting that it seemed like it lasted forever.'' - Texas' Ian Kinsler, after the American League's 4-3, 15-inning victory that lasted 4 hours, 50 minutes.
