To find out which team, the American League or National League, will come out on top, we've tapped the most authentic gaming resource available - MLB 12 The Show. So, what was the outcome you ask?

After simulating tomorrow night's 2012 All-Star Game, the win will go to the NL All-Stars, who will make it three in a row after a 13-year winless streak, hanging on to beat the AL by a score of 3-2 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.
