Jean Segura belted a three-run shot for the American League, which leads the all-time series 44-43-2.

Starting players, decided on by online votes from MLB fans, ranged from Mookie Betts (Boston Red Sox), Mike Trout (Los Angeles Angels) and Aaron Judge (New York Yankees) for the American League to Harper, Javier Baez (Chicago Cubs) and Freddie Freeman (Atlanta Braves) for the National League.

The teams combined for 14 runs in the game and all but one was scored on a homer. Alex Bregman of the Astros took Stripling just over the wall in left for a go-ahead homer.

Each year the festivities of the Major League Baseball All-Star game provides much excitement.

All-Star Game MVP Alex Bregman and George Springer hit back-to-back homers in the 10th inning, and the American League beat the National League 8-6 in a power-crazy All-Star Game.

The outcome of this, he warned, was ministers having "no power to initiate, innovate or even deviate" with "less scope to do free trade deals".

"There's a great love affair with both results".

Neither squad plated a run for the next three innings, before the National League's lumber heated up.

Contreras put the National League on the board by homering off Blake Snell in the third inning. Then Springer followed with another blast to left, have the Dodgers ever given up extra inning runs to the Astros before?

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto tied to start a rally with a lead-off home run in the bottom of the 10th, but it was not enough to salvage the game. But Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich added a homer in the eighth and Scooter Gennett tied the score in the bottom of the ninth with a two-run homer.

The American League continued its five-year winning streak for its sixth win against the National League in six years. Wish I could say it was the worst thing Hader did tonight. "(The Orioles) gave me every opportunity to come up and play in the big leagues.
