All-Star Game

The Mets All-Stars played like it last night.

David Wright blasted a solo home run in the second to tie the game at 1. He grounded out (once into a double play) in his next two at bats.

Carlos Beltran doubled in the first inning but was stranded. In the third, he ripped a single to center with a man on second but Soriano was gunned down at home. Beltran then created that run by stealing third and scoring on a wild pitch. He lined out to left in the 6th and reached on an error in the 9th. I believe he was the only player to play all 9 innings.

Had the National League held on the two Mets may have very well shared MVP honors.

Paul Lo Duca went 0 for 2.
