All three Twins in Tuesday's All-Star Game played a role in the outcome, for better or worse. Here's what they had to say about the American League's 2-1 victory.

Miguel Sano gave the American League a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning when he took a big swing and blooped a single that landed near three National League players by the right-field foul line.

Video (02:31) Twins third baseman Miguel Sano says he knows players who have never had an All-Star hit, so "I'm so happy" his short popup fell for an RBI single.

Closer Brandon Kintzler, added to the team as a replacement, came in and for the bottom of the fifth and retired all three batters he faced on routine ground balls, including a weak tap by slugger Giancarlo Stanton that ended the inning.

Video (02:42) Twins closer Brandon Kintzler says when Miguel Sano knocked in a run with a bloop single Tuesday and handed him a 1-0 All-Star Game lead, "it upped the energy for me."

Ervin Santana followed Kintzler for the American League and gave up the only National League run of the game -- a line-drive home run to right-center field by St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina.

Video (01:37) Twins righthander Ervin Santana says he wasn't unhappy with the pitch that Yadier Molina hit into NL bullpen during the All-Star Game, "he just made good contact."
