All-Star Game: Jeter starts it off, Rivera closes it out

Derek Jeter scored two runs, including the first of the game, and Mariano Rivera recorded his fourth save in the All-Star Game in the American League’s 4-3 win.

Jeter went 0-for-2, but reached base twice and scored both times. Mark Teixeira had a quiet third All-Star Game appearance: 0-for-3.

Jonathan Papelbon almost blew the game for the AL in the seventh, but luckily Carl Crawford was patrolling center field and robbed a homer. Joe Nathan escaped an eighth inning jam, and Rivera shut the NL down in order in the ninth.

The AL relief pitchers combined for 7 innings, 1 hit and 0 runs.
