Haren pitches fourth inning in All-Star game

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Arizona right-hander Dan Haren pitched the fourth inning for the National League in last night's All-Star Game and allowed just one hit, but Curtis Granderson tripled and scored the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning to lift the American League to a 4-3 win.

The one hit Haren allowed was a ground ball by Texas' Michael Young, which went through a hole at shortstop.

It was the third consecutive All-Star Game that Haren has worked. He's now tallied five All-Star innings in his career and allowed only one run.

Haren also got to meet President Barack Obama and have his

picture taken with him.

Obama threw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game.

The 28-year-old Haren was acquired by Arizona from Oakland in 2007.
