Final Score: AL 5 - NL 3 - great event held in the Twin Cities - "Michael'' Jeter the MVP?
Saving Buehrle in case this turns into Bud's worst nightmare and is tied up. So Buehrle is in line to earn the scare.
Twins flooding the field - Perkins closing it out.
102 to end the inning.
Chapman hits 100 on first pitch.
Adam should've kept that to himself
Abreu gave it a ride .... will be one of many All-Star Games for the rook.
Glen Perkins warming for the 9th. Keep the Twins fans happy.
Can Jeets close?
Rodney in a jam .... probably thinking, "Need a Cubs hitter up here....asap!''
Rizzo will hit for Stanton.
Rizzo could also be getting a look this inning. Getting warm in the dugout with bat in hand.
Alexei Ramirez out of the game after going 1-for-2 with a run scored and a stolen base. Nice night.
Abreu back out at first. Thought he might get Doc Moonlight Graham-ed, but should leadoff the next inning.
Ramirez steals second ... making an impact for A.L.
All A.Ramirez does is get on base. They give the E3 on that.
I'm sure the NBA completely taking the summer hostage with free agency will help ... then football camps open in a few weeks....
Overrated, underrated ... judge Jeter how you want, but showing up when the lights shined brightest has been his MO.
More Jeets by the numbers - in going 2-for-2, Jeter is now hitting .481 in his All-Star career, which ranks fifth all-time (min 10 ABs).
S. Castro - our first Cubs sighting?
Really happy for Tony Snell. He's having a great Summer League. He s playing with confidence and poise .No surprise
Abreu in the game at first base.
A. Ramirez singles ... and then is traded to the Yankees.
16 pitches for Sale, 9 strikes....for those keeping track of such stuff.
Sale allows a run to tie the game - somewhere a certain pitching coach says, "Don't blame me, I'm not there.'' Sale not happy, inning over.
Jeter out for Ramirez. Nice hug by the two. Standing O.
We have a White Sox sighting! Soxtown!
Sale now in the game.
Wainwright: "I get to tell my kids I faced one of the best ever.'' That was the first time Wainwright faced Jeets.
".... maybe I wouldn't have done it.'' Wainwright.
...that one was the leadoff double. "I thought he would single to the right side. If I would have known he would double ... ''
Wainwright just admitted he wanted to groove a pitch to Jeter and give him a chance. First pitch was in the dirt, so grooved 2nd.....
Best way to sum up Contreras - a gentleman.
In talking with some Sox people, Jose Abreu is cut from the same cloth as Jose Contreras as far as his kindness.
Donaldson just got K-ershawed.
Great AB by Utley - looked completely lost early on and found his way.
NBA has announced gold tabs on the back of jerseys for franchises that have an NBA title ... Call it the Melo Rule - as close as he'll get.
Can't wait to see Buehrle get in the game and baffle guys with 83.
Wouldn't be shocked if Carlos ended up in Houston.
Miggy Cabrera goes deep. AL takes 3-0 lead on Jeter Day.
Mirotic will initially start off getting the Nazr minutes until he shows otherwise, and Bairstow could pickup whatever is left early on.
Out with the old (Jeter), in with the new (Trout). New RE27PECT!
Fox field mic picks up " Overrated" by a fan with Jeter at the plate----wow timing is everything---my goodness
Baseball still has THOSE moments. Jeter doubles. Fewer and fewer in the game, but when they happen, special.
Jeter remains the definition of baseball class. Fans responding like they should.
Don't sleep on Bairstow, either. Early word is Thibs loves his physical play. Has that Asik feel to him as far as welcoming contact.
McDermott answers 31-point performance with 20 today against the Wolves. Will be fun to watch his development.
Old-man strength right there by Jeter, but McCutchen too fast. Can't throw out lightening.
They should let Jeter parachute in since it's his All-Star Game. Standing O for Jeets.
Still weird seeing Buehrle in Blue Jay.
Even Jeff Samardzija had to laugh at his introduction with the NL team, knowing he belongs in the AL dugout.
Free agent Jason Smith has signed a one-year, $3.3M deal with the New York Knicks, league source tells RealGM.

McDermott lighting it up again with 18 early in 3rd. George Karl talking to NBA-TV likened McDermott's shooting release to Dell Curry
... Guillen said: "If I say yes [about managing Sox again], then I don’t respect Robin Ventura. But that’s not where I’m coming from...''
Guillen family was moved he showed up. Ozzie said they had a real nice talk, and when asked if he could see himself doing a Billy Martin ...
