If the Boston Red Sox can make it back to the World Series this fall, they'll have to find a way to win their next title without the benefit of home field advantage.

The National League secured that edge in Phoenix Tuesday night with a 5-1 win over the American League in Major League Baseball's 82nd All-Star Game.

It was a game that came down to pitching, with National League hurlers limiting American League batters to just six hits all night. For the American League, its lone run came on a fourth-inning blast by Boston first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.

Bill Littlefield, host of WBUR’s Only A Game stops by Radio Boston to talk about the game, as well as the start of Roger Clemens' federal perjury trial, and the Women's World Cup.
