McCann comes up big, NL finally wins All-Star game

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.
