Sandoval, Cabrera turn All-Star game into NL romp
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Pablo Sandoval and Melky Cabrera keyed a five-run blitz against Justin Verlander in the first inning Tuesday night, and the National League romped to an 8-0 win over the American League and its third straight All-Star game victory.
Giants teammate Matt Cain started a strong NL pitching performance, combining with 10 relievers on a six-hitter that extended the American League’s scoreless streak to 14 innings — its longest since 1995-97.
Sandoval hit the first bases-loaded triple in an All-Star game, and Ryan Braun and Dan Uggla also drove in runs against Verlander, who couldn’t control his 100 mph heat.
