2012 MLB All-Star Game Score: Dan Uggla Flies Out In Fourth And Fifth Innings, National League Leads 8-0

After coming up with an infield RBI single in the first inning, Dan Uggla flew out to deep center field in his second at-bat. Uggla hit the ball well against former Braves prospect Matt Harrison, but it was just to the wrong and deepest part of the ballpark. Uggla then hit a lazy flyout to left field in his third at-bat of the game in the fifth.

No other members of the Braves have made an appearance at the 2012 All-Star Game. As for the other action, the National League currently leads by a score of 8-0. The two big blows of the game came on a bases-clearing triple from Pablo Sandoval in the first inning, and then a two-run homer in the fourth from another former Brave, Melky Cabrera.

The NL has surrendered just two hits thus far, and the American League is yet to mount any kind of rally. It appears that the Braves will have home field advantage in the World Series should they make it. Hooray!
