There was a whole lot of action in the top of the first inning, and then a whole lot of nothing going on. After half of an inning it was 5-0 National League, and after three full innings it was 5-0 National League. Nine consecutive American League batters had been retired. National League batters had been retired too although I can't care enough to look up how and in what order.
Matt Harrison came on to pitch the top of the fourth for the AL, and in introducing him Joe Buck and Tim McCarver talked about how Harrison had been "unhittable" for the past two months. He immediately surrendered two well-hit flies that turned into outs. Then the damage started. Rafael Furcal tripled, Matt Holliday singled, Melky Cabrera homered, and Ryan Braun tripled. Another Mike Maddux mound conference helped Harrison to record the final out, but holy shit you guys it's already 8-0. The NL hadn't scored eight runs since 1998. It hasn't scored more than eight runs since 1969. The All-Star Game usually doesn't have this many runs.
The NL's already up to three triples, and the current MVP favorites might be Cabrera and Pablo Sandoval. Sandoval's got a three-run triple, and Cabrera has a single and a two-run dinger. Previous All-Star Game MVPs include a number of very talented baseball players past and present, so that makes for good company.
Matt Harrison pitched the fourth inning in an All-Star Game. Here's this .gif of somebody for some reason.
