MLB All-Star Game 2011: Miguel Cabrera Injured; Pablo Sandoval's Double Gives N.L. 5-1 Lead

The National League has opened up a lead in the 2011 MLB All-Star Game, as Andre Ethier his an RBI single in the fifth inning and Pablo Sandoval tacked on an RBI ground-rule double in the seventh to make it 5-1. Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer earlier in the game off C.J. Wilson, and Wilson and Tyler Clippard are currently the pitchers of record.

No starters remain in the game for either side. The only Pirate to play so far is Andrew McCutchen, who subbed for Matt Kemp in center field and should come to bat for the first time in the bottom of the eighth inning. With only one inning likely remaining for National Leaguers to pitch, it looks unlikely that Joel Hanrahan or Kevin Correia will get into the game, although anything is possible.

UPDATE: McCutchen just grounded out to start the bottom of the eighth, and Hanrahan is currently warming up in the bullpen.

Fielder looks very likely to be the MVP of the game, unless something dramatic changes in the coming inning.
