Minnesota Twins’ closer Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth inning to earn the save in the American League 5-3 victory over the National League in Tuesday’s All Star Game.

Minnesota’s other All Star, Kurt Suzuki, came on to catch Perkins in the final inning.

Helping send Derek Jeter out a winner in his last All-Star game appearance, Mike Trout drove in two runs with a triple and a double to earn MVP honors for the game.

Jeter started his 14th and final midsummer gathering of the game’s best with a vintage opposite-field double, following an ovation from the Target Field crowd of more than one minute. The Yankees captain went 2 for 2 and was removed to another roar from the fans in the top of the fourth inning.

Max Scherzer picked up the victory with a scoreless inning and former Twin Pat Neskek, now with St. Louis, took the loss.

Miguel Cabrera homered for the AL which will earn home field advantage in this year’s World Series with the win.
