Nine innings wouldn't be enough to decide a winner at the 2008 All-Star Game, but -- unlike six years earlier -- this one would not end in a tie. The two sides played the longest All-Star Game in terms of time (4 hours, 30 minutes) and matched the record set at the 1967 Midsummer Classic for the most innings played. The AL ultimately emerged victorious in 15 innings when Michael Young delivered a walk-off sacrifice fly.
