Fielder belts pinch-hit RBI double; but St. Louis takes win
Milwaukee's Prince Fielder belted a pinch-hit RBI double that gave the National League a 3-2 lead in the second inning of Tuesday's All-Star Game.
But the lead didn't last and the American League scored a run in the eighth to win 4-3 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.
The Brewers' Ryan Braun started in right field for the first time in his career. He lined out to center and bounced out to short in his two at-bats.
Milwaukee closer Trevor Hoffman pitched a scoreless sixth inning. He gave up one hit but preserved a 3-3 tie.
Adam Jones of Baltimore drove in the game-winner with a sacrifice fly in the eighth that scored Curtis Granderson of Detroit.
Ex-Brewer Francisco Cordero of Cincinnati threw a perfect inning of relief for the National League, which remains without a victory in the Mid-Summer Classic since 1996.
Ex-Milwaukee prospect Nelson Cruz of Texas did not play for the American League after he finished second to Fielder in Monday night's Home Run Derby. The All-Star break continues today.
The Brewers resume play Thursday night at Cincinnati.
