PHOENIX --  It was not the first impression made by Matt Joyce. The outfielder, after all, had been knocking around Tampa Bay's lineup for three years.
But it was the lasting impression, that .414 average in May. His peers couldn't forget about it when they grabbed pen and paper to cast their votes for the American League All-Star outfield.
And that is how an outfielder gets to the 82nd All-Star Game by hitting .163 the last six weeks into the break. Joyce was chosen by fellow players as a testament to that fabulous run that left him leading the AL in hitting -- but also as a reward for a lifetime of against-the-odds perseverance.

A group of 108 English colonists, led by Sir Richard Grenville, reached Roanoke Island, North Carolina on this date in 1585.


PHOENIX -- It was a relatively quiet night at the All-Star Game on Tuesday for the five Giants on the National League roster for the Midsummer Classic.
Pitchers Tim Lincecum and Ryan Vogelsong didn't appear in the game -- they can blame their own manager, National League skipper Bruce Bochy, if they like -- while Matt Cain, another pitcher, wasn't eligible to play since he pitched Sunday.
Pablo Sandoval and Brian Wilson had much bigger impacts in the National League's 5-1 victory before the sold-out crowd at Chase Field.
