KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Pablo Sandoval and Melky Cabrera keyed a five-run blitz against Justin Verlander in the first inning Tuesday night, July 10th, 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.

Cabrera singled and scored the first run, then hit a two-run homer against Matt Harrison in the fourth as the NL rolled to the third-largest margin of victory in All-Star history.
