Mike Trout lead the game off with a home run off of Zack Greinke. The National League struck back in the bottom of the second after an RBI single from Jhonny Peralta.

The American League broke the tie with a two-run fifth inning against Clayton Kershaw including a pinch-hit RBI single from Prince Fielder followed by an RBI double from Lorenzo Cain.

Jacob deGrom had one of the most impressive showings of the night on the mound, striking out the side of Stephen Vogt, Jason Kipnis, and Jose Iglasias. No batter ever looked like he stood a chance.

Andrew McCutchen pulled the National League to within one at 3-2 with a screaming, no-doubt home run to the second deck in left field on the first pitch of the sixth innings. The blast came off of Tampa Bay's Chris Archer.

The American League extended their lead, however, in the top of the seventh after an RBI double from Manny Machado who was sac'd in by Prince Fielder.

Brian Dozier delivered a solo home run in the eighth inning to make the game 6-2. Ryan Braun led of the ninth with a triple and scored on a sacrifice and that is where the scoring would end at 6-3.

As for Colorado Rockies, DJ LeMahieu had a vintage DJ sliding stop web gem in the second inning and hit two hard line drives, though both were caught. Troy Tulowitzki got one at-bat and grounded out to second. He did not play in the field. Nolan Arenado made one nice but unspectacular play in the field and struck out in his only at-bat.
