Phillies All Stars Report

All five Phillies All Stars received at least one at-bat in the 2009 All Star Game.  Here is how each Phillie contributed:

Chase Utley: 0-for-2 (groundout, fly out). He made a couple spectacular plays at second base.
Raul Ibanez: 0-for-2 (groundout, pop up)
Shane Victorino: 1-for-2. Singled, scored a run in second inning to tie game at two.
Jayson Werth: 0-for-1 (strikeout). Made a fantastic catch in centerfield.
Ryan Howard: 0-for-1 (strikeout) With two on and two outs in the eighth, Howard had a chance to tie the game, or possibly give the National League the lead. Joe Nathan struck him out on a check swing.

The National League lost for the twelfth time since 1996.  With the 4-3 win, the American League will gain home field advantage during the World Series.
