Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-3 and scored a run.  Center fielder Carlos Gomez went 0-for-2.  Closer Francisco Rodriguez held the American League scoreless in an inning of relief.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The American League has won the All-Star game for the second straight year following big hits by Derek Jeter, Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera. Jeter had a pair of leadoff hits, Trout provided a couple of go-ahead RBIs and Cabrera slammed a two-run homer as the AL topped the NL 5-3.

Jeter received a thunderous ovation before hitting a leadoff double to spark the AL's three-run first inning. Jeter also singled in the third before leaving the game to another standing ovation just before the start of the fourth.

Jeter is a lifetime .481 hitter in the midsummer classic, going 13-for-27. The 14-time All-Star is retiring after the season.

Trout opened the scoring with an RBI triple before scoring on Cabrera's two-run homer in the first. The American League quickly squandered the three-run lead before Trout came through with a tiebreaking, RBI double in the fifth inning. Trout was named the game's MVP, the first Angels player to be so honored since Garret Anderson in 2003.

Jonathan Lucroy hit a pair of RBI doubles for the National League, which has lost 14 of the last 18 All-Star games.

Max Scherzer picked up the victory after striking out two in a scoreless fifth inning. Glen Perkins needed just nine pitches to work a perfect ninth and claim the save.

Pat Neshek was the loser, charged with two runs in just 1/3 of an inning.

The National League now leads the all-time series 43-39-2.
