NEW YORK - Major League Baseball's mid-season celebration of the players and for the fans that love America's pastime, Major League Baseball's All Star Game. And this time out there were two Arizona Diamondbacks on the roster.
It certainly all started well in the big apple for infielder Paul Goldschmidt and his teammate pitcher Patrick Corbin as they were introduced to jam packed Citi Field.
Neither side would cross the plate until the top of the 4th, unfortunately it was Patrick Corbin on the mound when it happened.
Corbin would first give up a double to Detroit's Miguel Cabrera.
Then MLB's home run leader Baltimore's, Chris Davis would then single to right.
With two on, Toronto's, Jose Bautista, flied to center to scoring Cabrera putting the American League up 1-0. For the inning, Corbin would give up two hits and a run.
Paul Goldschmidt got his chance to prospect for a hit in the bottom of the 7th when he powered a drive down the line. It was a shot that could have gone for extra bases if not for a tremendous play by the Orioles' Manny Machado at 3rd base.
The American League would tack on two more runs but the National League's bats were weak the entire game.
Paul Goldschmidt would get another shot at the plate in the bottom of the 9th, and with two outs he hit a double to the gap in center. But second base was as far as Goldschmidt would get, the American League going on to win the game three to nothing.
The Yankees Mariano Rivera would be honored for his performance, with his 1-2-3 8th inning and recognition for a stunning career, as he was voted the 2013 All Star Game's MVP.
