B.itting last and Ix'ing pit( htnl to b\ his tath(>r, Cano detealed Gon-/ale/ 12-11 in the tinals Monday night after they eat h hit 20 home runs through two rouncis.
Again highlighting the dangers of try ing to catch a ball at a big league ballpark, a fan standing on a table above the pool dec k, I<(m-th Carmickle of suburban Kingman, fell over trying to catch a Princ e Fieldc'r homc'r. The tan was grabbed by his i)rother lic'fore going all the' way ovt‘r, whc're h(' couici havi' fallen about 20 feet, and was dangling t)y his fcx't when he was f)ullecl bac k up.
"I stef)ped u[) on the tal)le, I missed the ball by 2 or \ feet and went over,” he said, "We caught three l)alls and I told the guys I was going to go for the cycle, v holdinii
Dude, they were really onto mc'."
Last week, a i9-year-old fan, Shannon Stone* died while trying to catch a ball thrown into the stands at a Rangers game in Arlington.

( armickle said he wasn't worried while he was dangling.
Cion/alez hit ball that wound up in the swimming f)ool in right field — .vlong with Mikc' McM)n, a 2f)-year-old fan who c aught the ball before' falling into the water, whc’re h(> was surrounded by biki-ni-c lad women.

Hurt stars show up in Arizona
Much is being made of the big names ansent from this year's All-Star game, yet some who are hurt came anyway to show their support.
Take lose Reyes of the New York Mets, who says he has lieen hurt three of the four timc*s he' has made the All-Star team, but has ce)me to the game eac h time.
Or Philadelphia's Shane Vic torino. He wifhdre'w be'c ause ot injury but felt a spe'c iai obligation to show up Ix'causc* he was the final player c hosen for the NL tc'am out five in an online vote by fans.
Several other All-Star selections who won't play made the trip, some' of them injured, some ineligible bc'cause they pitc hed on Sunday,
But some of the biggc'st names are no-shovvs, most notably Derek |e‘te'r of the Nc'w York Yankc'c's, who has had a call injury but was we'll enough to go S for S and get his },()00th hit with a dramatic home run on Saturday.
|etc*r clc'c idt*d not to make the' cross-countr\ tri[) to the' de*sert.
