For the second straight year, the American League won the All-Star Game. The Junior Circuit prevailed 5-3 in the midseason classic which was played at Target Field in Minneapolis.
The AL took a 3-0 lead in the first inning on a triple by Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout and a two-run home run by Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera. All three runs were scored of NL starter Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals.
The NL scored two runs in the second on back to back doubles by Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Chase Utley and Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy. In the fourth, Lucroy would tie the game at 3-3 on yet another RBI double.
The AL would take the lead for good in the fifth on a double by Trout and added another run on a sacrifice fly by Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve. Both runs were scored off Cardinals reliever Pat Neshek who would end up taking the loss.
