After two innings, the All-Star game is scoreless, with pitchers controlling the game to this point.
Mets pitcher and National League starter Matt Harvey began the game by allowing a double on the first pitch to Angels outfielder Mike Trout. The next batter, Robinson Cano, reached first base after being hit on the quad by a pitch (he would later leave the game), and was replaced by Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia.
Harvey would go on to retire the next six batters he would face, including strikeouts to Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera, Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista and Orioles center fielder Adam Jones.
For the American League, Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer started the game and retired Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, Cardinals right fielder Carlos Beltran and Reds first baseman Joey Votto in order. Scherzer was removed after the first inning for White Sox lefty Chris Sale.
Sale started the second inning by retiring the other Mets representative, David Wright, on a ground ball to Cabrera. He followed that by making Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez look silly on a few sliders down-and-away, but not quite as silly as Randy Johnson once made John Kruk look.
