Clayton Kershaw came on for the NL and gave up a single to Alcides Escobar. Trout grounded into what would’ve been a double play for anyone else running, but he bolted down the line like nobody’s business and beat the throw. I can’t recall seeing anyone with that kind of hustle in an All-Star Game, at least not lately. Trout safe at first, one out.
After another out Albert Pujols walked, putting Trout on second. Then Prince Fielder came in as a pinch hitter for Nelson Cruz and singled to left. Despite a strong, strong throw from Joc Pederson, there was no getting Trout who slid home for the American League’s second run. Next up was Lorenzo Cain, who doubled to left plating Pujols. Kershaw buckled down and struck out Brett Gardner, ending the inning.
It’s now 3-1, A.L. at the end of five.
