Tonight in Kansas City it was a Giants All Star Game. Matt Cain got the win for the National League in the 8-0 shutout and Pablo Sandoval tripled in the first inning to drive in 3 runs, including Buster Posey. Melky Cabrera didn’t do too badly either. For going 2 for 3 with a home run and driving in 2 runs, he won the Ted Williams MVP Award (ironically enough, the last Giants player to win the award was Bobby Bonds, in 1973, when the game was also held in Kansas City). Congratulations to our great fans who voted in the Stars of the All Star Game!
The Sunday before the All Star Game the best of the best in the Minor Leagues get to show their stuff in the Futures Game. The year Tommy Joseph, a catcher with the Richmond Flying Squirrels, represented the Giants while playing for the U.S. Futures team. Joseph had a great game, drawing a walk and later scoring in the 3rd inning and then hitting a double in the bottom of the 4th. World Futures 5 – U.S. Futures 17
