Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison didn’t fare much better than Justin Verlander.
Harrison allowed three runs, including a 2-run homer by San Francisco’s Melky Cabrera, as the National League extended its lead to 8-0 over the American League in the 2012 MLB All-Star Game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.
David Price opened the third inning on the mound for the AL and retired the side, Joey Votto, Carlos Beltran and Buster Posey, in order.
Washington’s Gio Gonzalez pitched the third inning for the NL. He struck out Mike Napoli and then got former Tiger Curtis Granderson to fly out to left. He ended the inning by getting Derek Jeter to ground out.
Matt Harrison came on for the AL in the bottom of the fourth and retired the first two batters before Rafael Furcal tripled down the right field line, not even drawing so much as a relay throw. His teammate, Matt Holliday, singled to right to extend the NL lead. Cabrera was next and hit a 2-run shot to left. Ryan Braun followed that with his second extra-base hit of the night, a triple down the right field line. Votto, though, grounded out to second to end the inning.
