MLB All-Star Game 2012: Rafael Furcal, Matt Holliday Take Part In N.L.'s Offensive Explosion

The N.L. All-Stars exited the fourth inning up 8-0, thanks to a barrage of extra base hits off A.L. All-Star pitchers Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers and Matt Harrison of the Texas Rangers. Rafael Furcan and Matt Holliday of the St. Louis Cardinals played a small role in that offensive explosion, but a role they did play.

With the N.L. up 6-0 in the fourth, Furcal tripled to right field off of Harrison. Holliday was then inserted into the game in place of Carlos Gonzalez, and promptly singled Furcal home to make it 7-0. San Francisco Giants OF Melky Cabrera then smacked a homer to left field to bring the score to 8-0.

The A.L. All-Stars have amassed only two hits on the night, with one coming off of Matt Cain and another off of Stephen Strasburg. Gio Gonzalez of the Washington Nationals pitched a clean third inning for the N.L.
