The NL had won three in a row after losing the first seven games after Major League Baseball decided the winning league gets home-field advantage for the World Series.
Following a trend that began last summer in Kansas City, many players wore flashy spikes they would never use during the regular season - bright orange high tops for Jones, black and gold for Arizona's Corbin.
"It seemed like everybody was wearing something pretty flashy. I guess the theme of this year's All-Star game was the flashy cleats,'' said Harvey, who wore bright orange with gold trim.
Harvey became just the third Mets pitcher to start an All-Star game, following Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden. Seaver threw out the ceremonial first pitch, moving in front of the rubber and tossing to current Mets captain David Wright, who quickly moved in front of the plate to prevent the ball from bouncing.
Harvey was only the 11th pitcher to start an All-Star game on his home mound, the first since Houston's Roger Clemens in 2004. The 24-year-old has made just 29 major league starts, the fewest for an All-Star starter since Hideo Nomo with 13 in 1995.
He quickly got into trouble, with Trout hitting an opposite-field double down the right-field line with his first pitch, a 97 mph fastball. Two pitches later, Harvey drilled Cano on the side of the right knee with a 96 mph fastball.
Cano was examined by a trainer and walked gingerly to first base, and Harvey struck out Cabrera. Cano then walked slowly toward the AL dugout and went for an X-ray, which was negative. He was replaced by Dustin Pedroia.
"Obviously I apologized and made sure that he was OK,'' Harvey said. "It wasn't intentional.''
Harvey reached 99 mph against Davis, who flied out to center, and got Bautista to strike out while chasing a slider.
Scherzer, 13-0 before Saturday's loss to Texas, retired Phillips, Beltran and Votto in order in the first on 12 pitches.
