NL tops AL 8-0 in All-Star Game

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Former Southeastern Louisiana pitcher Wade Miley, representing the Arizona Diamondbacks, appeared in his first Major League All-Star Game Tuesday.

The left-hander from Loranger, La., faced a pair of batters to begin the ninth inning. Miley surrendered a lead-off single to the Minnesota Twins' Joe Mauer, but induced Texas Rangers' shortstop Elvis Andrus into a fielders' choice grounder to retire Mauer at second base.

Miley was replaced by Pittsburgh Pirate reliever Joel Hanrahan. The National League jumped out in front right away and never looked back as 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.

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.
