July 10, 2012 Updated Jul 10, 2012 at 11:22 PM EDT

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Pablo Sandoval hit a bases - loaded triple off Justin Verlander during a five-run first inning, and the National League romped to an 8 - 0 victory over the American League in the All - Star game Tuesday night.

Melky Cabrera, Sandoval's teammate in San Francisco, added a two - run homer in the fourth. Rafael Furcal and Ryan Braun each tripled to help the NL set a record for the most in a Midsummer Classic.

Adding to a big night for the Giants, NL starter Matt Cain tossed two sharp innings. Braun also had an RBI double off Verlander during the biggest first inning since 2006, when the AL scored six times off Roger Clemens before his hometown fans in Houston.
