Congratulations to the National League on it's second All-Star Game win in a row, beating the American League tonight 5-1.
So, how did the three Dodger representatives do?
Let's begin with Matt Kemp. Matty started in Centefield and batted third in the line-up. He went 1 for 2 with a single and a walk.
Clayton Kershaw. Kersh pitched a perfect fifth inning, striking out one.
Andre Ethier. Dre entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning and got a basehit. That hit knocked in Rickie Weeks, and gave Andre a run batted in. As Weeks was scoring, Ethier made a base running blunder, and was tagged out at second base.
Not bad for the three Dodgers. They all contributed to the NL victory. Now the National League has home field advantage in the World Series, not that the Dodgers have much of a chance of making it, but you never know. Stranger things have happened.
