AL Wins Again; Pedro Signs with Phils

        The American League has defeated the National League 4-3 in the 80th Mid-Summer Classic in St. Louis.  It was the 13th straight win for the AL.  Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Carl Crawford won the MVP award after taking a home run away from Colorado outfielder Brad Hawpe.

        Shane Victorino was 1 for 2 with a single and a run scored on an overthrow to third base.  Victorino was the only Phillie to get a hit in the game.  St. Louis native Ryan Howard struck out in his only at-bat in the eighth inning with runners on second and third.

        There was some promising news coming from the Phillies today.  Pedro Martinez has been officially signed by the Phils.  The contract is worth $1 million for the second half of this season.
