Price delivers at All-Star Game

by Barca Blog

David Price made the most of his first Major League All-Star appearance Tuesday night, even if pregame jitters tried to get in the way.

"I felt like I just had Thanksgiving dinner and was trying to pitch," said Price, who started the game for the American League. "It was fun. I was out there sweating. I couldn't really feel anything, my hand was just drenched. My glove felt like it was going to fall off."

The former Commodore overcame his nerves and set the tone early by tossing two scoreless innings in front of 45,408 at Angel Stadium. Price threw 23 pitches (16 for strikes) and only surrendered one hit while striking out one. He was also the only player to register triple digits on the radar gun, according to Steve Henson of Yahoo! Sports.

The National League won the game, 3-1, to earn their first All-Star victory since 1996.
