2011 MLB All-Star Game: National League Beats American League

For the second year in a row, the National League will have home-field advantage in the World Series.

The National League beat the American League 5-1 in the 82nd All-Star game last night in Arizona.

Milwaukee Brewers’ first baseman Prince Fielder was named the game’s MVP, as his three-run HR off of Texas Rangers starter C. J. Wilson in the fourth inning was the difference in the game.

Outside of Adrian Gonzalez‘s HR in the top of the fourth and Fielder’s three-run bomb to left center in the bottom of the inning, this was a pretty uneventful All-Star game. Once the NL took a 4-1 lead after the fifth inning, the AL couldn’t muster anything.

The AL did get two runners on in the ninth against Joel Hanrahan, but Brian Wilson came in and shut the door rather quickly.

Next year’s All-Star game will be played in Kansas City.
