Late rally propels NL to All-Star win

Shakers' Robertson takes home MVP

The American League All-Stars were one out away from winning this season's All-Star game but the National League had a different idea in mind. Down two runs with two outs in the top of the ninth, Huntington's Yorvit Terrero lined a double into left field and it was just the spark that the NL needed. The next batter, Sal Lake City's Nick Robertson crushed a two-run home run off of Ottawa's Mark Ott to tie the game at eight. The NL would tack on two more runs in the ninth, all with two outs, and wind up winning the game 10-9. Robertson was named the game's MVP.
