Continued: American League shows off strong arms in All-Star Game shutout

“I was just trying to take it all in,’’ Perkins said.

Rivera pitched a scoreless eighth, with Joe Nathan getting the save in the ninth. Rivera, however, was named Most Valuable Player and given a new car.

No one complained because Rivera is retiring at the end of the season, and doing so in style. He has a career 0.00 ERA (one unearned run) in nine All-Star Game appearances.

His AL teammates remained in the dugout Tuesday as Rivera came in from the bullpen, with his entry song at Yankee Stadium, “Enter Sandman,’’ playing. Fans gave him a long standing ovation.

“I heard that song in another stadium, and that was great,’’ Rivera said. “And when I got to the mound, I see both sides, both teams in the dugout, and it was amazing. It almost made me cry, too. I was close.’’
