    Sandoval began the rout, lining a bases-loaded triple to right field in the first inning on Wednesday (Manila time).

    That triple sparked a five-run first inning for the NL All-Stars as Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers and Dan Uggla of the Atlanta Braves also slammed run-scoring hits off AL starter Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers.

    Cabrera crushed a two-run home run in a three-run fourth inning and was named All-Star MVP.
