Ryota Igarashi tossed 2 shutout innings against the single-A Dunedin Blue Jays on the 14th and picked up a win.  Final line: 11 BF, 2 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 SO.

Ichiro Suzuki went 0-for-2 with a strikeout during Tuesday night's All-Star Game.  Seems Ichiro may have been swinging for the fences during his first at bat.  He also made a nice catch on a line drive hit into the gap by Albert Pujols to end the top of the first inning.

Incidentally, TV ratings for this year's All-Star game apparently came in at 7.5m households.  That's down from last year's 8.9m and also sets a new record for the lowest rating since at least 1967 (the previous low of 8.1m was set in 2005).
