NL Wins Second All-Star Game in a Row 5-1

By Scott Allen

Not a ton of fireworks, but enough as the National League took their second consecutive game from the American League 5-1 at the All-Star Game at Chase Field on Tuesday night.  Milwaukee Brewers Prince Fielder hit a 3-run homer in the fourth inning to give the NL the lead for good.

Boston Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez hit a solo home run in the top of the fourth inning to give the AL it’s only scoring.  The AL made things interesting in the 9th with a couple of errors and a hit.  However after the Pittsburgh Pirates Joel Hanrahan failed to close things out, NL manager Bruce Bochy brought in his own guy, Brian Wilson, to finish things off.

It was a fun game to watch and the Arizona fans came out to cheer on their own guys.  Outfielder Justin Upton got two at bats, lining out and flying out.  Catcher Miguel Montero came in as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning and did not have an at-bat.
