The National League rocked Justin Verlander with a five-run first inning, with the majority of the damage coming with two outs. Pablo Sandoval -- who would hit two homers off Verlander in the World Series a few months later -- led the charge with a three-run triple. All-Star Game MVP Melky Cabrera went 2-for-3 with two RBIs.
