Suzuki gets an inside-the-park homer, AL wins All-Star game

SAN FRANCISCO - Ichiro Suzuki sped around the bases as the ball bounced away from Ken Griffey Jr. for the first inside-the-park home run in All-Star game history. On a night of tricky hops, Suzuki and the American League rebounded to win - as usual.

Ask Dr. Gott 7/11

DEAR DR. GOTT: I read your column about ginger root for sea sickness. It worked great for me several years ago, when I went on a windjammer cruise in the Caribbean. I started taking two capsules three times a day the day before I flew to St. Thomas and continued for seven days until the cruise was over.

The ginger root worked great.
