2012 MLB All-Star Game: Dan Uggla Singles, Drives In A Run For National League

The National League got off a great start at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game, scoring five runs in the first inning off Justin Verlander. The NL has won the last two Mid-Summer Classics and with home field for the World Series on the line, it's safe to say the guys came to play.

Ryan Braun doubled in Melky Cabrera for the first run of the game. After loading the bases with two outs, Verlander surrendered a bases-clearing triple to Pablo Sandoval. Dan Uggla then drove home Sandoval with an infield single to give the NL a 5-0 lead. Derek Jeter was able to make a play on Uggla's ball, but a poor throw skipped past Prince Fielder at first base.

Matt Cain is the starter for the NL and has just taken the mound in Kansas City. The game is currently airing live on FOX.
