It was a lopsided night in Kansas City where the National League rolled to an 8-0 shutout win in the All-Star Game.

The American League was in trouble from the very beginning when starter Justin Verlander struggled with the strike zone and gave up five runs in the first inning. The National League scored the rest of its runs in the fourth off Matt Harrison.

Former Yankees outfielder Melky Cabrera had a big night going 2-for-3 with two runs, two RBI and a home run.

The American League had six hits total, and the Yankees accounted for a third of them.
