MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – There weren’t many highlights for the American League in the All-Star Game Tuesday night in Kansas City, but Twins catcher Joe Mauer had one of them.

Mauer, one of the best hitters in baseball, singled to center in the bottom of the ninth inning off of Wade Miley. Mauer entered the game in the top of the eighth inning, replacing Paul Konerko at first base.

It was one of just five hits the American League had in an 8-0 loss to the National League. That means the National League champion will have home field advantage in the World Series.

Mauer currently ranks 10th in all of baseball and fourth in the American League with a  .326 batting average. He’s played in 77 of the team’s 85 games and is showing no effects of missing much of the 2011 season with bilateral leg weakness.

It was Mauer’s fifth All-Star Game appearance.
