2014 – Cabrera Homers AL to 5-3 Win
Miguel Cabrera won the start as the American League’s first baseman for 2014 and struck early to help the American League break open the game early.
In the bottom of the first, Mike Trout tripled off of Adam Wainwright to drive in Derek Jeter and give the AL a 1-0 lead. Cabrera stepped to the plate one batter later with Trout still on third and drove Wainwright’s 0-1 pitch into the seats to extend the lead to 3-0.
