The National League representative will have home field advantage in the World Series for the third consecutive time this fall.
Tuesday in Kansas City, the National League pounded the American League in a 8-0 victory.
San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval hit a first inning three run triple and San Francisco Giants center fielder Melky Cabrera hit a two run home run in the fourth inning.
Another San Francisco Giant also played a key role. Starting pitcher Matt Cain got the win after he threw two innings of work with no earned runs and a strikeout.
There were two other very interesting storylines that resulted from the game. First, Tony La Russa, the St. Louis Cardinals World Series winning manager, was the manager for the National League despite the fact he retired in the offseason. Also, Justin Verlander, the ace of the Detroit Tigers, and possibly one of the best pitchers in baseball got absolutely hammered as he gave up five earned runs in the first inning of work.
