The American League bested the National League despite fine performances by Daniel Murphy, Kris Bryant, and Jose Fernandez. KB started out strong, smashing the first pitch he saw from Chris Sale.
Sadly, that euphoria for NL fans did not last long.
Ned Yost used his team smartly, as Salvador Perez and Eric Hosmer came up clutch to give the AL home field advantage for this year’s World Series. Zach Britton saves the game, the first Orioles pitcher to snag an All Star Game save since 1986.
Who else had concerns about how Terry Collins used his team, including his bullpen? Why did Johnny Cueto go back out into the second? Why did Collins pull Corey Seager in a do-or-die situation to go with an untested Cardinal?
Answers to all these questions and more in today’s comments. Let’s have an All Star conversation!
