Good morning! The American League beat the National League 2-1 in 10 innings on Tuesday. Here are the plays everybody will be talking about:
Bryce Harper made a nice catch and an even nice hair-flip. There wasn’t a lot of action early in the game, but Harper and his hair provided one highlight in the second inning. Harper robbed Salvador Perez to end the second inning, but it was the dismount that most people noticed, as Harper flipped his hair back after the catch.
Nelson Cruz stopped the came to take a pic with umpire Joe West. Baseball often gets accused of spending too much time in the past. Well, there is nothing more 2017 than making thousands of people wait for something while you take a pic with somebody (0:14 mark of this video).
And here was the result:
Robinson Cano won the game in the 10th. Cano hit the first extra-inning home run in an MLB All-Star game in 50 years, as he led off the top of the tenth inning with a solo shot off of Wade Davis. The home run gave the AL a 2-1 lead and they would go on to win.
