National League Wins 2010 MLB All-Star Game

The National League won the 2010 All-Star Game on July 13 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim in Anaheim, California. This is the first National League All-Star win since 1996.


The National League was down 1-0 coming into the seventh inning when Brian McCann hit a three-run double in the seventh inning. The National League beat the American League 3-1.

Brian McCann won the MLB All-Star MVP award after having the first bases-clearing double in All-Star Game history.

The American League pitcher Phil Hughes is the first Yankees pitcher to lose an All-Star Game since Tommy John in 1980.

“It felt awesome for us to get the win and break the streak,” Jonathan Broxton of the Los Angeles Dodgers said.

“You dream of moments like this as a kid. It was amazing,” said All-Star MVP Brian McCann.

The New York Yankees All-Stars wore black armbands in honor of longtime New York owner George Steinbrenner. Steinbrenner died from a heart attack Tuesday morning in Tampa, Florida, at age 80.

“It’s a difficult time, on a great day for baseball, the All-Star Game, something everyone looks to,” Yankees and AL manager Joe Girardi said. “A great man in baseball passed. He’s meant so much to not only this organization, but to the game of baseball, and to all of us personally.”
