Led by San Francisco Giants sluggers Melky Cabrera and Pablo Sandoval, the National League won Major League Baseball's mid-season All-Star game by a lopsided 8 runs to 0. It was the third consecutive victory for the National League over the rival American League, and the win means the NL team will have home-field advantage in the World Series. Cabrera was named the game's most-valuable player. National League batters scored five runs against pitcher Justin Verlander in the first inning alone.
