Ichiro Suzuki hit the first inside-the-park home run in All-Star Game history, leading the American League to continued dominance in the Mid-Summer Classic with a 5-4 victory over the National League. Suzuki's fifth-inning home run gave the American League a 2-1 lead and carried the Seattle Mariners center fielder to the Most Valuable Player Award. Suzuki finished 3-for-3 and Carl Crawford and Victor Martinez hit home runs for the AL, the latter a two-run shot in the eighth that made the score 5-2. The win didn't come without drama. Dmitri Young's two-out grounder to Brian Roberts in the hole between first and second was gloved then dropped for an infield single, and Alfonso Soriano belted a two-run shot just over the wall tight to the line in right for a 5-4 game. The American League pitchers walked three men in a row before Aaron Rowand flew out to right. New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes had three hits and scored once while Ken Griffey drove in two runs and threw out Alex Rodriguez at the plate. The American League continued its dominance, winning for the fifth straight time and improving its record to 10-0-1 in the last 11 meetings. The Senior Circuit hasn't won an All-Star Game since 1996. With the victory, the American League champions will have home field advantage in the World Series.
