Cano wins MVP, Miller shuts the door

Can the NL Break Out of Their All Star Game Funk Watch: Nelson Cruz has Yadier Molina stop All-Star Game to take picture with umpire
Howard Terry | 16 July, 2017, 00:44

It was a snoozer of an All-Star Game, Robinson Cano's 10th-inning homer notwithstanding. The Home Run Derby has been around since 1985, yet purists cringe at how many fans (and despite their claims to the contrary, many players) care more about its outcome than the All-Star Game itself.

The live, in-game interviews and pre-at bat pictures led some, including USA Today baseball columnist Bob Nightengale, to complain about the game.

The NL tied the score in the sixth inning on Molina's solo homer to right field. Harper's hat flew off in the process, so he flipped his long hair back as he got up. He got in trouble in the second when the Nationals' Daniel Murphy and the Colorado Rockies' Nolan Arenado hit opposite-field singles with no outs. "I was lucky to hit one out".

One such moment occurred in the sixth inning, when Mariners star Nelson Cruz took out his phone before reaching the batters box and requested a picture with veteran umpire Joe West. Cruz had hoped to take a selfie with the ump but was hindered by his batting gloves, leading catcher Yadier Molina to play the role of photographer. Baltimore's Jonathan Schoop doubled down the third-base line. He matched the most strikeouts by a St. Louis Cardinals pitcher in an All-Star Game, set by Dizzy Dean in 1934. While sprinting for second base, Cruz stayed upright when he should have slid.

Boston's Craig Kimbrel escaped a second-and-third, two-out jam in the bottom of the ninth. Fellow rookie Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers and 26 more first-time All-Stars were selected for the Tuesday game at Marlins Park.

Each year, Chevrolet gives the victor of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game a new vehicle and for the 2017 All-Star Game, it was Seattle Mariners' second basement Robinson Cano. They're an economic windfall to the host city, and for as much as some fans decry home run contests or skills competitions dominating the interest, others embrace the entertainment value centered around what is, after all, just an exhibition game. "Coming to this country at 10 years old ... For me to give back to those people - I had 60 people here - it's priceless".

Cleveland closer Andrew Miller finished off the win.

"I was nervous the first pitch", Judge said, "but after that its go time - 3-2 I was getting ready for 100 (mph), and I got a slider".
