Giants' Cabrera MVP as NL rolls past AL

Giants players Melky Cabrera and Pablo Sandoval sparked a five-run first inning off Tigers ace Justin Verlander, and the National League cruised to an 8-0 victory over the American League in Tuesday night's All-Star Game in Kansas City.

Cabrera, who played for the hometown Royals last season, was named MVP after hitting a single and two-run home run in three at-bats. Sandoval hit a bases-loaded triple in the first.

"I didn't come to win an MVP. That's just a surprise," Cabrera said. "The same opportunity that Kansas City gave me last year is the same opportunity that San Francisco is giving me every day to showcase my talent. Again, I'm just very thankful for the fans that voted for me to come here."

Giants pitcher Matt Cain, who allowed one hit in two innings, was the winner as the NL won for the third time in a row, giving the NL representative home-field advantage in the World Series.

Ortiz on DL returnees: 'We need the help'

KANSAS CITY -- David Ortiz went 1-for-2 with a warning track fly out to left against Giants right-hander Matt Cain in the second inning and then a single to left in the fifth inning against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw before being replaced by Royals DH Billy Butler. The lone Red Sox representative on the American League squad (which lost to the NL, 8-0) expressed enthusiasm for the opportunity to take part in his eighth All-Star Game.

"It's always a blessing to be part of the All-Star Game," said Ortiz. "Having to come out is something that will never get old. you know what I'm saying? It's something I look forward to."

That said, Ortiz had announced (via twitter) prior to the game that he planned on getting one at-bat and then turning over DH duties to Butler. He was overruled in that ambition by AL manager Ron Washington.

"Some things happened and Washington wanted me to get another at-bat and I just went and...

Moore paces C's summer league rally

ORLANDO -- E'Twaun Moore had another solid summer league performance as he scored 15 points to go with five rebounds and four assists, but it was unheralded Jonathan Gibson who stole the show for the Celtics summer league team in an 82-73 win over the Nets. Gibson, an ultra-quick guard from New Mexico State, struggled on Monday, but he poured in 15 of his 17 points in the second half Tuesday to lead the comeback after the Celtics scored just seven points in a brutal second quarter.

One game after scoring a game-high 20 points, first-round pick Jared Sullinger struggled against bigger competition. He went 3-for-12 playing mostly against 7-footer Jeff Foote, although he did grab 12 rebounds and had a solid fourth quarter. 

Fellow first-rounder Fab Melo was scoreless in 13 minutes with five rebounds, while second-round pick Kris Joseph scored 11 points and had five rebounds and looked like the best player on the floor at times.

Selig: Bobby V movie on Dominican unfair

KANSAS CITY -- Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, in a session with the Baseball Writers' Association of America at the All-Star Game, said that he has not seen the movie Pelotero -- a documentary on the amateur signing process in the Dominican Republic for which Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine served as executive producer -- but that he has been told that it is inaccurate, dated and unfair.

The documentary, which follows the signing process of amateurs Miguel Angel Sano and Jean-Carlos Batiste, describes Major League Baseball as possessing a potentially corrupt monopoly when it comes to permitting young players to sign, while also implicating both players and teams in the falsification of birth dates. Since the signing period followed by Pelotero, Major League Baseball issued rules changes regarding the international amateur market; MLB has also made a concerted effort in recent years to improve age and identity verification of...
