Ranger George Springer hit a four-cornered hit in the tenth inning and scored the winning run for the American League, which won 6-8 at home in the 89th edition of the All-Star Game.

With his victory, the American League added its eighteenth in 21 games and leads the series 44-43-2.

The game, which took place in Washington in the Nationals field, the “Nationals Park”, marked half of the regular season of the Major Leagues, and achieved a record of 10 homers between the two novenas.

There had never been more than six homers in a All-Star game since Babe Ruth hit the first in 1933.

In the tenth inning Springer sent the ball into the street all the way up the right field, with no runners ahead, and arrived at the register scoring the difference race.

He and his teammate in the Houston Astros, Alex Bregman, hit consecutive home runs in the 10th.

Outfielder Michael Brantley followed with a sacrifice fly to seal the numbers on the board.

With his entire home drive, Springer (1) also closed the American League home run count, which got five in total.

The outfielder Aaron Judge (1) sent the ball to the street in the second episode without runners ahead.

Only one entry later, Ranger Mike Trout (1) disappeared the ball from the field, also lonely.

The emerging Dominican hitter Jean Segura (1) was in charge of representing the power of the Latin American bats of the American League by hitting home runs in the eighth episode, leading two runners ahead.

Segura, who was perfect with the wood when hitting 2 of 2 and who was the most productive player with three RBIs, threw her off the field against relay pitching Josh Hader when they registered one out in the episode.

The Puerto Rican made 23 pitches, 12 of them to the strike zone, and put his efficiency average at 2.25.

The National League battery responded with five home runs, having Venezuelan wide receiver Willson Contreras as the leader of the rain.

Contreras (1) hit the first home run of the National, punishing in the third episode the relay launches Blake Snell, no teammates ahead, no outs in the inning.

The Venezuelan hit once in two trips to the batting box, drove a run and once arrived at the ringer.

Shortstop Trevor Story (1), Ranger Christian Yelich (1), pinch-hitter Scooter Gennett (1) and first baseman Joey Votto (1) also blew their rounds with two full-back homers.

The loss was taken by closer Ross Stripling (0-1) in an episode and two thirds, he accepted four hits, two home runs and three runs.

Among those attending the playing field was Judge Brett Kavanaugh, nominated by President Donald Trump for the Supreme Court.
