Brewers shine bright at the All-Star Game (SPORTS)



It was a nice night for the Milwaukee Brewers at the 85th annual Major League Baseball All-Star game in Minneapolis. All four representatives made an impact for the National League team despite the 5-3 loss to the American League.

In his first All-Star appearance, catcher Jonathan Lucroy was two-for-two at the plate with a pair of doubles and two runs driven in. If the NL would have picked up the win, Lucroy would have been a candidate for MVP.

Aramis Ramirez also chipped in with a pair of hits. Carlos Gomez had a rough night at the plate but made up for it with a couple of nice plays in the field. Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless 6th inning in a relief role.

The win locks up home field advantage for the American League in the World Series. The last five World Series Champions have come from the league that won the All-Star game. The National League still leads the all-time series 43-41-2.

Milwaukee is back on the field Friday when they visit Washington.
