MLB All-Star Game 2011: Josh Beckett Injured, Score Tied At Zero Through Two

After two innings of the 2011 MLB All-Star Game, the biggest highlights have been a single up the middle by Lance Berkman and a spectacular sliding catch in the corner by right fielder (and former Pirate) Jose Bautista. (Berkman later overslid the bag at second and made an out, meaning that American League pitchers have faced the minimum.) The score remains tied at 0-0. 

For the American League, David Robertson came on to pitch the second inning. Jered Weaver pitched the first inning and Josh Beckett was supposed to relieve him, but Beckett felt something in his knee. Hopefully for Red Sox fans, it's nothing serious - the Sox have had all kinds of problems with their starting pitching recently.

There haven't been any Pirates sightings yet, although that isn't surprising. I wouldn't expect to see Andrew McCutchen until the middle innings, whereas Joel Hanrahan could pitch in the late innings. I would be very surprised if Kevin Correia pitched at all.
