With two men on base for the American League and none out in the bottom of the tenth inning last night, the Major League All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium reached a dramatic high point.

But listeners to WEAE (1250 ESPN), which carried the game locally, never got a chance to share in the excitement.

Because of a technical glitch, the station switched to regular ESPN programming and never went back to the game, which was won by the American League, 4-3, in 15 innings.

``I'm embarrassed,'' said Mike Thompson, the general manager of 1250 ESPN. ``I apologize on behalf of the station. It was a technical snafu on our end. It can't be tolerated from an execution standpoint. It will not happen again.''
