The AL added to its lead in the fifth with a similar rally. The Orioles' Adam Jones led off with a double to left off the Phillies Cliff Lee, advanced to third on a Joe Mauer single and scored on a fielder's choice by JJ Hardy.
Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was an early casualty in Tuesday's game. Moments after Angels' star Mike Trout started the game with a double down the right field line, Cano took a 96-mile per hour fastball from Mets ace Matt Harvey off his right knee. X-rays, luckily for Cano, were negative.
As far as All-Star debuts go, there aren't many pitchers in the history of the game who put on the type of show the Marlins' Fernandez did.
The Cuban defector, who survived a daring sea voyage across the Atlantic five years ago to gain his freedom at age 15, joined Dwight Gooden and Bob Feller as the only pitchers in All-Star history to produce two strikeouts at the MidSummer Classic before their 21st birtday.
"He's really impressive -- especially for the situation," said 2012 NL MVP Buster Posey of the Giants, who caught Fernandez in the sixth. "You figured there would be a lot of nerves and excitement. But he showed great poise and obviously the stuff speaks for itself."
Fernandez sandwiched strikeouts of former MVP Dustin Pedroia and current major league home run leader Davis between getting Triple Crown winner Cabrera to pop out to first.
"Dangerous group of hitters there," Fernandez posted on his Twitter account moments after exiting the game. "I felt like I was going to throw 110."
Fernandez, who wore bright orange shoes with his Twitter handle on them, didn't hit 110 on the radar gun. But he came close.
He hit 98 miles per hour three times on the radar gun against Cabrera, a former Marlin. His strikeouts came on a 96-mile per hour two-seamer at the knees against Pedroia and then a nasty curveball in the dirt against Davis, who slugged 37 homers in the first half of the season.
"He was dirty man," Davis said. "... Knowing where he came from and where he's at, he's got a very high ceiling. He's a guy I'm glad I don't have to see on a regular basis."
Before the game, Fernandez was busy soaking up the All-Star experience. He reached into his locker Tuesday afternoon and pulled out a white Marlins jersey to show a friend.
This wasn't any ordinary jersey, though. It had the autographs of every All-Star in the National League clubhouse on the back, a special keepsake the 20-year old rookie said he plans on putting in a frame and on a wall up in his house.
"I got a bat autographed, too," Fernandez said with a smile on his face. "It's been amazing just to be here talking to all these guys."
