McCann Comes Up Big, NL Finally Wins All-Star Game
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- One key swing by Brian McCann pulled the National League out of the All-Star shadows.

McCann's three-run double in the seventh inning provided the NL all the offense it needed to capture its first Midsummer Classic since 1996 with a 3-1 victory Tuesday night.

In a year of dominant pitching, young starters David Price and Ubaldo Jimenez set the tone -- and got even more help from the tricky shadows. Nearly the entire field at Angel Stadium was bathed in odd patterns of sunlight for a twilight first pitch, creating more awkward swings and misses than usual in baseball's annual talent show.

The National League earns home-field advantage in this year's World Series.
