The 2011 MLB All-Star Game is tied at zero after three innings. As expected the pitching has been outstanding, including that from Colorado native Roy Halladay.
To start the game, Roy Halladay had a quick 1-2-3 inning with two ground out to first base and a strikeout of Asdrubal Cabrera. Jered Weaver countered with a similar start by getting a ground out and a strike out. However, he walked Matt Kemp before getting Prince Fielder to fly out to Josh Hamilton in left field.
In the second inning, Roy Halladay had another 1-2-3 inning and was helped by a nice defensive play from Scott Rolen and a Lance Berkman catch in deep right field. In the bottom of the second, David Robertson came in for the AL because Josh Beckett experienced knee soreness during warmups. Jose Bautista made a sliding catch into right field foul territory on a Brian McCann-hit ball for the first out of the inning. Lance Berkman picked up the first hit of the game with a single. Matt Holliday struck out and then Alex Avila threw out Berkman who slid too far off the base.
Cliff Lee came into pitch the third for the NL and left unscathed. Troy Tulowitzki fielded the ball on an Alex Avila hit and threw it to first base for the final out of the inning. He started off the bottom of the inning but flied out to center field on a Michael Pineda pitch. Pineda struck out Scott Rolen and Rickie Weeks to end the inning.
