The Yankees starters played well overall, but were no match for the National League bats as the American League lost 8-0. Home field advantage for the World Series goes to the National League with the win in the All-Star game.
Derek Jeter, making his 13th All Star team, was able to go 1 for 2 making the start at shortstop. He got a base hit in the first inning off Giants pitcher Matt Cain.
Robinson Cano, who heard it from Kansas City fans on Monday night at the Homerun Derby for not picking Billy Butle,r got booed a lot again on Tuesday night. Cano went 1 for 2, getting a base hit off Stephen Strasburg of the Nationals in the fourth inning in a fun match-up.
Curtis Granderson also was starting for the American League in center field, but he had a tough time facing two of the better lefthanders the National League had to offer. He went 0 for 2 in the game flying out in the third inning against Gio Gonzalez of the Nationals and grounding out in the fifth against Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers.
