MLB All-Star Game 2011: Adrian Gonzalez's Solo Homer Gives A.L. 1-0 Lead

The 2011 MLB All-Star Game has been flying by, as we're in the fourth inning in about the first 45 minutes of the game. Adrian Gonzalez just kicked off the scoring with a solo homer to right field off Cliff Lee, making it 1-0, American League. The A.L. just got another baserunner when Jose Bautista hit a pop-up behind first base, near the foul line, and Prince Fielder couldn't quite field it as it dropped just inside the line. It was ruled a hit, but it probably could have been called an error. 

Josh Hamilton then dumped a single into center field, moving Bautista up to second. Lee has been removed from the game, and the score is 1-0, A.L., with two on and two outs. Tyler Clippard of the Nationals is coming on in relief.

UPDATE: And Adrian Beltre singled, but Bautista got gunned down at the plate.

Jered Weaver, David Robertson and Michael Pineda have pitched scoreless innings for the American League so far. 

No Pirates have yet entered the game.
