All-Star MVP Cano's can-do attitude wins game for AL

  • Nelson Cruz stopped the All Star Game to pose for

- And home teams went 1-2 in Game 7s of the World Series under those rules, St. Louis beating Texas in 2011, Kansas City losing to San Francisco in 2014 and Cleveland losing to the Cubs a year ago.

Oakland A's first baseman Yonder Alonso, born in Cuba and raised in Miami, was one of the game's under-the-radar stars, going 2-for-2 with a steal.

Thanks in part to Cano, the AL won its fifth straight All-Star Game and tied the all-time series 43-43-2. Miller walked Joey Votto with two outs, then struck out rookie sensation Cody Bellinger.

So the AL gets pride and bragging rights, but no edge in October now. That carrot had been added to counter the players' decreasing interest in providing a competitive, "real" ballgame, a treat many older baseball fans still expect of their all-star game, much more than fans of other sports do. NL starter Max Scherzer also came out letting it fly. He didn't pose with the St. Louis Cardinals All-Star, who was decked out in a gold-painted helmet and a gold chest protector, but with an umpire before his sixth-inning at-bat on Tuesday night.

So by the time the game moved into the 10th inning, roughly half the crowd at Marlins Park had been replaced by empty seats.

"Winning MVP, you want to get that feeling", Cano said. Cruz pulled a phone out of a uniform trousers pocket when he stepped to the plate and asked Molina to take a picture of him posing with West, who last month became the third ump to work 5,000 regular-season games.

"I don't need anything on the line", Scherzer said.

"I felt like a little kid running the bases", Molina said.

Martinez hit 100 miles per hour on four of 14 pitches in the third. Harper wore shoes that honored the late Jose Fernandez, the Marlins pitcher who was killed in a boat crash last September.

Harper made a great play in the second inning, robbing Salvador Perez of a single to shallow right-center. Basketball purists decry a ridiculous 192-182 final score, which happened in the 2017 NBA all-star game - a contest that nonetheless produced the highest TV rating for basketball's showcase since 2013.

Later interviews were conducted on the field as warm-up pitches were thrown between innings.

"After I lost Harper I lost concentration a little bit", Betances said. "I was able to settle down and make pitches when I needed to".
