AL Wins 2017 MLB All-Star Game 2-1, Robinson Cano Hits Game-Winning Home Run

The 2017 MLB All-Star Game was a pitchers’ duel and a thriller. In a matchup with limited scoring, the All-Star game went to extra innings for the first time since 2008.  

The American League gutted out the win, thanks to Robinson Cano’s solo shot to lead off the 10th.

Wade Davis of the Cubs was tagged with the loss, giving up the homer. The Red Sox’s Craig Kimbrel, who nearly allowed a run to score in the bottom of the ninth, picks up the win. Andrew Miller of the Indians snagged the save.  

It was the AL who stuck first in the fifth inning, thanks to a bloop single by the Minnesota Twins’ Miguel Sano that scored Jonathan Schoop of the Baltimore Orioles. But Yadier Molina of the Cardinals would tie things up in the sixth inning, thanks to an opposite field solo shot. But it was Cano who played the hero, delivering the go-ahead run.

Carlos Martinez of the Cards has perhaps the best night on the mound. In two innings of work, he allowed just one hit and one walk striking out four batters.
