National League Wins All-Star Game

Baseball’s National League trounced the American League in Tuesday night’s All-Star Game, winning handily 8–0. Melky Cabrera of the San Francisco Giants hit a home run and nabbed the MVP award, while 40-year-old Chipper Jones relished his last All-Star outing. Jones got emotional speaking to his teammates before the game. “I don’t want to stand up here and get all gooey in front of the younger bucks. They might think I’m getting soft,” he said. “I really want to impress upon them to take advantage of this opportunity, to soak it up, have fun. You never know when your last one is going to be.”
