The National League expanded its lead to 8-0 in the fourth inning after San Francisco Giants center fielder Melky Cabrera hit a two-run homer off of Texas Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison. The NL remains in control through six innings.
Homer Run Derby champ and Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder is done for the night. The American League starting first baseman gave way to Paul Konerko in the fifth inning after going 0-2 at the plate. Fielder did generate some buzz with his home run swing producing a pair of warning track outs to center and left field.
Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera relieved Adrian Beltre for the American League and had to face knuckleballer R.A. Dickey in his first at bat in the sixth inning. With two on and one out, Cabrera hit a tailor-made double-play ball to shortstop.
