Cal Ripken Jr. has been an All-Star 13 times. He is the senior star who played last night. The man's team lost. The man knows the drill. "When you lose, you have to say it's just an exhibition," Ripken said. "When you win, you say you took it seriously. " The American League lost. The National League got three hits, all homers, and won the 66th All-Star Game by a 3-2 score. It was just an exhibition. It was just an exhibition loss for the AL, its second straight after six consecutive wins.

JAIME GARCIA homered off Bronson Arroyo and pitched into the seventh inning, helping the St. Louis Cardinals clinch a tie for the second NL wild card and spoil Dusty Baker's return from a mini-stroke with a 4-2 victory over the visiting Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. The defending World Series champions have won 11 of 14 and led the Los Angeles Dodgers, playing at home later against San Francisco, by 2 1/2 games. A loss by the Dodgers or another Cardinals win would wrap up a playoff spot for St. Louis and a visit to Atlanta for the wild-card game Friday.

The popular sporting expression of the day in Montreal yesterday went something like this: "On s'est fait vole. " In case you skipped your Berlitz class, that's French for: "We wuz robbed. " Which seemed to be about the most polite reaction from the Quebecois when news reached them yesterday that the National League had decided to recognize the Phillies, not the Expos, as defending league champions. The Montreal Gazette stripped a headline across the top of the front page of the newspaper that read: Baseball's final insult: Phillies declared champions.

IF YOU READ this column, you probably know that I grew up in New York, rooted for the baseball Giants and hated the New York Yankees (as most Giants and Dodgers fans did). So when my beloved Giants left for San Francisco in 1958, I decided to root for the American League team that had the best chance to beat the Yankees. That turned out to be the Chicago White Sox. I have been a White Sox fan since, (and, of course, a Phillies fan in the NL). My adopted team rewarded me by winning the AL pennant in 1959, the first year I rooted for them.

CALL THIS THE week of flip-flops. First on Chip, and now this: I want the designated hitter in the National League. While doubling the potential trade partners for Ryan Howard seems motivation enough, I want it for the same reasons many of you don't. Uniformity. Collegiate baseball uses a designated hitter. High school baseball uses a designated hitter. Hell, American Legion even uses it. Congratulations to Little League for holding out, but then again, man, those pitchers can hit. More and more, the ones coming into the major leagues cannot.

MIAMI - It was 7 years ago, so it was difficult for him to recall off the cuff, but Kyle Kendrick said he wasn't sure where he finished in the National League Rookie of the Year voting in the fall of 2007. He finished fifth, behind Ryan Braun (the winner), Troy Tulowitzki, Hunter Pence and Arizona outfielder Chris Young. Kendrick was asked that question yesterday afternoon because there's a member of the Phillies pitching staff who should garner votes when members of the Baseball Writers Association of America fill out their ballots this week.

CARLOS RUIZ entered the fourth week of the 2014 season hitting .204 without an RBI in 14 games. A week later, the Phillies catcher has been honored as the National League's Player of the Week. In the six games he started in Los Angeles and Arizona, Ruiz hit .500 (11-for-22) with a .593 OBP. Both numbers led all of baseball for the week. Ruiz began the week by going 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles and four RBI in a 7-0 win over the Dodgers last Monday. He ended it by knocking in one run and scoring another in the eighth inning of a 6-5, come-from-behind win in Arizona on Saturday.

NEW YORK - The seventh inning Sunday started and ended with a standing ovation at Citi Field. Dwight Gooden, seated in a suite directly behind home plate, waved to the Mets fans on his bobblehead day. They stood to salute a man whose name often is invoked in the same sentence as 24-year-old pitcher Matt Harvey. When Harvey threw his 112th pitch, a 96-m.p.h. fastball that John Mayberry Jr. skied to center, everyone rose again. The noise was loudest now. Five days earlier, Harvey captured a national audience's attention in this ballpark.

NEW YORK - Cliff Lee has seen the numbers. He knows the Phillies were outscored by 45 runs in their first 96 games but entered the all-star break at .500. It is less a function of his team than a result of the National League East's occupants. Yes, Lee said, the Phillies have played their best baseball in the last three weeks. But . . . "Lucky for us, the Braves haven't really run away with it," Lee said. "As bad as we've played, we're within striking distance. It's not my job to make those decisions, whether we are buyers or sellers.
