The National League won its third straight All-Star Game on Tuesday, beating the American League 8-to-nothing at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. Tigers ace Justin Verlander gave up five runs in the first inning, and was charged with the loss for the AL. It was a surprisingly bad performance by last year’s AL Cy Young Award winner and Most Valuable Player. His Tigers teammates, Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera, fared no better. Neither got a hit in the Midsummer Classic. WDET’s Pat Batcheller talked about the game with The Grio’s Jason Smith.
