Something happened that hasnâ€™t been done in 26 years, a leadoff home run to start the game for the AL.
Angels all-star Mike Trout took his cross town rival Zack Greinke deep with an opposite field line drive home run.
Tremendous athlete Bo Jackson was the last to leadoff with a home run, which he hit dead center at an estimated 430 feet.
Greinke, who leads the bigs in ERA with a 1.39, pitched two innings, struck out four and allowed one run.
His national league teammates would pick him up in the second.
Arizona Diamondbackâ€™s Paul Goldschmidt, who leads the NL in batting average (.340) and both leagues in RBI (70), singled and advanced to second on a throwing error by Torontoâ€™s Josh Donaldson.
Goldschmidt would later score three hitters later on an RBI single by Cardinalâ€™s Jhonny Peralta.
Impressive outings by Pittsburgh Pirateâ€™s Garrett Cole (13-3), who leads the bigs in wins, and Metâ€™s Jacob deGrom.
Both pitched one inning not allowing a hit.
The same can be said for the ALâ€™s David Price, Dellin Betances and Felix Hernandez.
deGrom was dealing.
He was the only pitcher in the game to strike out every batter he faced.
The Dodgersâ€™ Clayton Kershaw did not perform well Tuesday night.
In the fifth he allowed both Angles all-stars, Trout and Albert Pujols, to cross the plate.
Texasâ€™ Prince Fielderâ€™s first at-bat was an RBI single to drive in Trout.
Kershaw got the loss while Detroitâ€™s David Price was given the win.
The momentum began to sway the NLâ€™s way in the sixth .
A leadoff home run from former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen cut the deficit to 3-2.
Cincinnatiâ€™s own Aroldis Chapman closed for the NL and was smoking his fastball past hitters, clocking in at 102 mph.
Phenom Bryce Harper went hitless with two strikeouts.
A short surge in the bottom of the ninth added a run for the NL but wasnâ€™t enough in the end.
Milwaukeeâ€™s Ryan Braun led off with a triple, his third of the season, and was brought in with a sac fly by San Franciscoâ€™s Brandon Crawford.
Two easy flyouts later, the ballgame was over
Trout, who went one-for-three at the dish, won the â€˜Ted Williamsâ€™ MVP award for the second consecutive year.
Players and coaches have two days off before the second half begins Friday.
