Daniel Murphy struck out in his only at bat in the 2014 All-Star Game on Tuesday night.
Murphy was the Mets lone representative in the All-Star Game.
“I had a blast,” he said after the game. “I would love to do this again sometime.”
Murphy entered the game as a defensive substitute in the seventh inning. After first baseman Freddie Freeman made an error – unable to handle a ball off the bat – Murphy attempted to still get the out, but flipped the ball over Freeman’s head. Fernando Rodney later struck Murphy out to end the 8th inning with runners on first and second base and the National League down two runs.
Murphy and his family will spend the next two days with the Gees in San Diego, (MLB.com, July 16), where he and his teammates will resume play Friday against the Padres.
“We’re playing really well,” Murphy said about the Mets, who have won 8 of their last 10 games. “I hope it [lasts].”
