Fielder Powers NL to 5-1 Win

PHOENIX (AP) - Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer, Roy

Halladay and his relief stayed in control and the National League

beat the AL 5-1 in the All-Star game Tuesday night for its first

two-game winning streak since the mid-1990s.

The victory gave the NL home-field advantage in the World

Series. With several big names as no-shows at Chase Field, the AL

lost more than the game.

Boston ace Josh Beckett warmed up, then bowed out with a sore

knee. Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera left after appearing to hurt

his side.

The Nationals won two in a row for the first time since taking

three straight from 1994-96 - they had lost 12 consecutive games

played to a decision before a 3-1 victory at Anaheim last year.
