2012 MLB All-Star Game Score: Andrew McCutchen Singles In First At Bat

The National League led the American League 8-0 even before any members of the first-place Pirates entered the game, and the most memorable moment comes courtesy of Bryce Harper, who completely lost a fly ball in hilarious fashion.

Andrew McCutchen is now in the game, though, playing center field and batting second. In his first at bat, against White Sox hurler Chris Sale, McCutchen got into an 0-2 count but laced a single to left, but got stranded at first when Jay Bruce flied out and David Freese struck out.

R.A. Dickey is currently on the mound for the N.L. Joel Hanrahan, who I didn't think would play, was shown warming up.

The National League scored five runs off Tigers ace Justin Verlander in the first, thanks in part to a three-run triple from Pablo Sandoval. Melky Cabrera hit a two-run homer to key a three-run fourth inning off Matt Harrison.
