Cardinals star but National League falls to American League

12 July 2017

The National League has won the most All-Star games overall - 43-42 (plus 2 ties).

"It was nice having home-field advantage last season", Andrew Miller said. He thought the game still counted for home-field advantage in the World Series and wasn't sure if he would warrant playing time. (1992) and Ichiro Suzuki (2007). With a double in the eighth inning, Utley registered his 1,000th career RBI, putting him in select company with just ten other hitters now active in Major League Baseball. The AL had scored off Dodgers lefty Alex Wood in the fifth.

Finally, while Miami is a good tourism city, it's also one of MLB's more isolated locations. But Kimbrel, who has allowed just five runs all season, struck out the Mets' Michael Conforto, sending the game into extra innings. The Boston closer wound up with the win. And Miller finished it by striking out Dodger rookie Cody Bellinger, the same rookie who stunned him with a leadoff homer in the eighth inning on June 13 to break a 2-2 tie.

McCullers said he doesn't miss a Scherzer start, whether he watches on television in real time or after the fact on the Major League Baseball app.

If Judge isn't too your liking, there were 33 All-Stars in the game who were 27 or younger.

Aaron Judge wins 2017 Home Run Derby, all our hearts
Judge clinched it with No. 11, a blast to straightaway center field with just under two minutes still remaining on the clock. Gary Sánchez was definitely exhausted as he pushed his way through the second round. "And he's a good person", Archer said.

Thanks for watching. Here are all the highlights from the 2017 MLB All-Star Game in Miami.

The night's most-watched sluggers fizzled.

The Starting Pitcher's for this year's contest will be two of the top three arms in baseball, Max Scherzer (NL) and Chris Sale (AL).

NL pitchers struck out 14, including four by Carlos Martinez, three by Kenley Jansen and two each by starter Max Scherzer and Greg Holland.

Overall, this was a pitching dominated Mid-Summer Classic, but the close nature of it made things really interesting in the final frames. However, all eyes will be on one particular All-Star that is taking baseball by storm, New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge. He was, of course, named the game's MVP, becoming the third Mariners player to do so, joining Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr.

Researchers examine new healthcare plan impact
The Senate, so far, has spent none, and is planning to vote on the bill as soon as the leaders have enough votes to pass it. His problem with the bill is its impact on Medicaid Expansion, which would cost 200,000 Nevadans their health coverage.

There could be no better expression of the joy with which players regard the game - with nothing at stake - than the moment when Seattle's Nelson Cruz approached home plate in the sixth inning. It was his first All-Star Game homer, and only his second hit in seven career All-Star Games.

"[The Northwoods League] gives you a taste of professional baseball", Scherzer said in the interview. Unfortunately, Mike Trout is injured, Clayton Kershaw won't pitch because he'll start Sunday, and Miguel Cabrera didn't make the American League roster. The lefty also neared 100 miles per hour with his fastest pitch of the season.

"Well, I'm not the fastest guy, so I didn't think I was going to do much from first base", Arenado said. I know the mayor of Montreal has been very vocal about bringing baseball back to Montreal.

Martinez hit 100 miles per hour on four of 14 pitches in the third.

Yadier Molina didn't mind them, either.
