Mike Trout named MVP of All-Star Game for second straight year
Trout becomes the first player in MLB history to win All-Star Game MVP in back-to-back years. The 23-year-old also won the award in 2014 after going 2–for–3 with two RBIs.
The American League won the game 6–3.
Trout led off the game with a home run off Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke and finished 1–for–3 with two runs, an RBI and a walk. He joins Cal Ripken Jr., Gary Carter, Steve Garvey and Willie Mays as the only players to be named All-Star Game MVP in multiple years.
Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder played a key role in the outcome as well, pinch hitting for Nelson Cruz in the fifth and hitting an RBI single and later hitting a sacrifice fly to score Manny Machado.
