The Giants were represented by Buster Posey and Brandon Belt as their position players in the 87th MLB All-Star Game.
Both players went hitless at the plate as the National League fell to the American League, 4-2, in the Midsummer Classic Tuesday night at Petco Park. Posey started the game behind the dish and batted fifth while Brandon Belt came off the bench in the top of the eighth inning.
In Posey's first at-bat, he was hit with tough luck. The four-time All-Star smacked a one-hopper up the middle that bounced off Indians pitcher Corey Kluber's shoulder as Jose Altuve scooped up the grounder and threw out Posey at first base.
Posey scored in the top of the fourth on a Marcell Ozuna single after walking. He finished the game 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored.
Belt called himself an All-Star for the first time in his sixth season with the Giants.
The Giants' first baseman only received one at-bat, a pinch hit for DH Wil Myers. Belt faced Yankees reliever Andrew Miller and forced a 3-2 count, but wound up flying out to left field on a slider from the lefty.
At the All-Star break, the Giants are 57-33, good for the best record in baseball. San Francisco currently has a 6.5 game lead in the NL West on the Los Angeles Dodgers.
