Trout Homers Off Greinke; AL Wins All-Star Game


The American League defeated the National League, 6-3 in baseball’s annual All-Star Game Tuesday in Cincinnati.

As a result, the American League will have the home field advantage in the World Series.

The AL also had it last season but Kansas City lost to San Francisco in the deciding Game 7.

“Even though we won I think it’s very important to have the deciding game at home,” said Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

The game began with a duel between Mike Trout of the Angels and Zack Greinke of the Dodgers.

Greinke hadn’t given up a run in his last 35 2/3 innings but Trout hit a home run. The 23-year-old Trout was also the all-star game MVP last season.

The last time a player led off an all-star game with a home run was Joe Morgan in 1977.

The Dodgers and Angels, both in first place in their divisions, resumed play this weekend. The Dodgers were in Washington.
