American League continues All-Star Dominance

For the 13th straight year(1 tie) the American League has proven to be superior in the “best vs. best” competition as they topped the NL 4-3 at the Mid-Season Classic in St. Louis. This was one of the best opportunities for the NL to get a win as the starting pitching was in their favor but it was the AL pitching who allowed only 2 base runners over the last seen innings, and also got to the AL got to “the freak” early for 2 runs in the first inning. From there they used a home run robbing play from Carl Crawford that would have tied the game and had Super Mario come in and get his record 4 All-Star game save. Despite raising the stakes by awarding home field to the winner, the AL still continues to make the NL their punk and hold a sizeable advantage in interleague play as well. What can the NL do to turn this around? Is AL really that much better or is the ALG and Interleague not a true gauge and should stats be the judge? Let us know here and in the MLB chat rooms and team rooms.
