Guerrero Jr., helps power AL stars to 5-2 win over Nationals

St. Louisan and Mizzou product Scherzer finished up his fourth All-Star start in a perfect inning by striking out Xander Bogaerts.

Ohtani ran through his own perfect inning which ended with Coors favorite Nolan Arenado, a Colorado Rockies star for eight years, tapping to shortstop. Arenado also grounded out in his only other at-bat.

Cardinals reliever Alex Reyes,one of 42 first-time All-Stars, relieved in the eighth and allowed a bloop single before forcing Kansas City’s Whit Merrifield to ground out and throwing 98 mph gas past Zunino for his first All-Star strikeout.

The Americans took a 1-0 lead in the second as Milwaukee’s Corbin Burnes walked Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees and Boston’s Rafael Devers doubled past first baseman Freddie Freeman of Atlanta.
