Rivera enters early, helps AL shut out NL in All-Star game

(Continued)

NOTES: Nathan gave Rivera the game ball, and a representative from the Hall of Fame took Rivera's cap to display in Cooperstown. ... Hall of Famer Tom Seaver from the 1969 Miracle Mets threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Wright, who led the NL All-Stars out of the dugout. He singled in the seventh and was pulled for Pittsburgh 3B Pedro Alvarez in the eighth. ... Next year's game is in Minnesota, with 2015 at Cincinnati. ... The score of the 2002 All-Star game, which ended in an embarrassing 7-7 tie, was restored on the out-of-town scoreboard after it was noticeably absent during Monday night's Home Run Derby. ... Neil Diamond performed ballpark favorite "Sweet Caroline" from in front of the mound in the middle of the eighth inning. ... Corbin's only loss in 12 decisions this season came July 2 at Citi Field. ... The crowd of 45,186 was the largest ever at Citi Field, which opened in 2009.
