MLB All-Star Game 2014: Score, Recap & Highlights

AL: 5

NL: 3

MVP: The LA Angels’ Mike Trout became the 2nd youngest MVP in All-Star history. He had the choice to take home either a corvette or a Chevy Silverado. He chose the Vette.

The American League beat the National League in the 85th annual MLB All-Star Game for the second consecutive year to win home field advantage for the World Series.

With performances by Idina Menzel along with Derek Jeter’s farewell tribute, it was one of the biggest events on the baseball calendar.

The National League batted in the top of the inning, the American League in the bottom.

Here’s how it went down:


1st Inning

Top

Jeter almost made the first out of the game with a beautiful catch and throw, but was a hundredth of a second too late.


Bottom

Jeter led off with a beautiful double, showing off his veteran skill and giving the crowd exactly the show they wanted. Someone in the corwd even had the nerve to yell “overrated” before Jeter got up to bat. Jeter shut him up quickly.

Mike Trout followed with a triple to bat in Jeter who scored the first goal of the game.

Two base hit, three base hit, and then Cabrera finished off the hits with a home run to make the score 3-0 AL. Couldn’t make this up if you tried.


2nd Inning

Top

Ramirez started the inning with a double.

Utley followed with another double to get and RBI.

Lucroy hits the third double of the National League to make it 3-2!

National League captain Tulowitzki gets a double, but Goldschmidt struck out next to end the inning.


Bottom

Mike Trout nails a double to bring in another run to put the AL up 4-3. His hit was controversial as many think it went foul.

The innings ends with RBIs by Trout and Altuve.

Ramirez has his 2nd hit of the night and advances to second base, but no one helps him get home.
