National League Needs This Win

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Ryan Howard would rather not hear another word about the American League's dominance in the All-Star game.

The Phillies slugger knows all too well it's been 13 years of AL bragging rights. And, no, that wacky 7-7 tie in 2002 did little to boost NL morale in baseball's Midsummer Classic.

In this year of the pitcher, the National League is downright loaded, even for an All-Star game with the best of the best coming to Orange County on Tuesday night.

There's Colorado 15-game winner Ubaldo Jimenez starting at Angel
Stadium.

In the bullpen: Marlins ace Josh Johnson, Mr. perfect Roy Halladay and two-time reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum. And so on.

The AL run is one of the more perplexing streaks in sports.
