In 2006, the National League looked poised to win its first All-Star Game since 1996, but Michael Young had other plans. With the AL trailing, 2-1, and down to its final out, Young connected for a two-run, go-ahead triple on an 0-2 pitch in the top of the ninth inning. That proved to be the difference, as Mariano Rivera then locked down the save in the bottom half for a second consecutive year.
