In other baseball news, the National League put a hurting on the American League by a score of 8-0. David Freese struck out in his only AB, Rafael Furcal tripled and was driven home by his real life teammate Matt Holliday. Just for fun, if you watched the game, what player were you most impressed by? My vote goes to Craig Kimbrel who looked absolutely unhittable. Throwing 100mph gas and then backing that up with a hard, tight slider. Wow. What say you FR Nation?
