Lucroy singles in only plate appearance of All-Star Game

SAN DIEGO — Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy singled in his only at-bat in Tuesday night’s All-Star Game at Petco Park.

Lucroy entered the game in the seventh inning, representing the National League All-Stars and already trailing 4-2 to the American League. With nobody on base, Lucroy ripped a single off New York Yankees reliever Andrew Miller to give him a perfect 3-for-3 performance in All-Star Game at-bats. Lucroy went 2-for-2 in 2014’s Midsummer Classic.

San Francisco Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto took the loss for the National League, allowing five hits and three earned runs over his one and 2/3 innings of work. The American League was paced by Kansas City Royals first baseman Erik Hosmer, who went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in the second inning. The AL would win the 87th All-Star Game 4-2, taking the contest for the third straight year.
