Last night, the American League All-Stars defeated the National League in a game that dominated by solid pitching.
Miguel Sano knocked in the game’s first run in the 5th inning, but the National League would tie things up just an inning later after Yadier Molina hit an opposite field shot. That would be all the scoring until the top of tenth inning when Robinson Cano drilled a pitch from Wade Davis over the right field wall for a go-ahead home run. Andrew Miller would close out the game to give the American League a 2-1 victory.
Corey Dickerson went 0-2, with a strikeout as the starting DH for the American League while Chris Archer never got into the game.
