"Just a little tight," Cano said. "I'll be good for Friday."

Wright went to the mound for a calming chat with Harvey, who whiffed Jose Bautista to end the inning.

Cano's name came up all night — even after he left the game. A fan in a Cano shirt ran on the field and gave himself up to security near second base as players backed away a bit, but was tackled anyway to the delight of the crowd.

Cabrera's bat slipped out of his hands on a swing and sailed 10-15 rows deep, where it nearly clipped another fan in a Cano jersey.

Cabrera's next cut against loser Patrick Corbin produced a leadoff double in the fourth, and Bautista's sacrifice fly snapped a 17-inning scoreless streak for the AL that dated to Adrian Gonzalez's homer off Cliff Lee two years ago in Arizona.

Baltimore's Adam Jones, wearing bright orange high-tops, doubled against Lee to start the fifth and scored while J.J. Hardy beat out a potential double play. Kipnis doubled home a run in the eighth off Atlanta closer Craig Kimbrel.

NOTES: Nathan gave Rivera the game ball, and a representative from the Hall of Fame took Rivera's cap to display in Cooperstown. ... Hall of Famer Tom Seaver from the 1969 Miracle Mets threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Wright, who led the NL All-Stars out of the dugout. He singled in the seventh and was pulled for Pittsburgh 3B Pedro Alvarez in the eighth. ... Next year's game is in Minnesota, with 2015 at Cincinnati. ... The score of the 2002 All-Star game, which ended in an embarrassing 7-7 tie, was restored on the out-of-town scoreboard after it was noticeably absent during Monday night's Home Run Derby. ... Neil Diamond performed ballpark favorite "Sweet Caroline" from in front of the mound in the middle of the eighth inning. ... Corbin's only loss in 12 decisions this season came July 2 at Citi Field. ... The crowd of 45,186 was the largest ever at Citi Field, which opened in 2009.
