SAN DIEGO — It was a night for Royalty in Major League Baseball’s annual All-Star Game.

Kansas City’s Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez provided all the offense for the American League as it gained home-field advantage for the World Series with a 4-2 victory over the National League.

Hosmer homered and singled to drive in two runs and Perez hit a two-run homer to account for the American League’s scoring. Ironically, both homers came off Johnny Cueto, who was a late-season pickup last year for the Royals.

Hosmer was named the game’s MVP.

Kansas City’s Ned Yost, who led the Royals to the World Series title last year, piloted the winning AL All-Stars.

Finally, KC’s Kelvin Herrera did his part by pitching a scoreless sixth inning. The American League’s win was its fourth in a row.
