MLB All-Star Game MVP Robinson Cano Wins a Corvette Grand Sport

Nelson Cruz Stopped the All Star Game to Have Yadier Molina Take

It was quite a performance in his first All-Star Game, and, fittingly, the first Midsummer Classic played in Florida. That was fun. Nelson Cruz had Yadier Molina take a picture of him with umpire Joe West before batting in the sixth.

"I knew I was facing one of the best closers in the game - Davis is filthy", said Cano, who was selected the game's MVP. "I think that's the only chance you have to take a picture with Joe West".

NL starter Max Scherzer, Harper's Nationals teammate, pitched just one inning, but he was dominant, striking out two.

Odds are, the shenanigans like what Cruz pulled off will be remembered a lot longer than that score.

MIAMI (AP) _ Robinson Cano was a late addition to the American League All-Star team, and he made a late contribution to a 2-1 win over the National League in Miami on Tuesday. So he handed the phone to Molina, the NL catcher who was wondering what was happening before he agreed to take the photo. He then asked plate umpire Joe West to pose for a photo.

"I've never seen that before - ever", he told The Associated Press after the game.

A left fielder playing in right for the first time in four years, Upton extended his arm on a full run to catch Corey Seager's liner leading off the 10th.

Washington's Bryce Harper lost his hat as he sprinted for a sprawling, spectacular catch in right field.

AL starter Chris Sale of the Red Sox pitched two scoreless innings.

"After I lost Harper I lost concentration a little bit", Betances said. I want to have this feeling. Thus began then-commissioner Bud Selig's motivation to tie the All-Star Game to home field advantage. Former Commissioner Bud Selig put in the rule as part of the response to the 7-7 tie that was widely criticized in 2002.

Davis wasn't with the Cubs last fall when they won the World Series for the first time in 108 years.

Cano's homer came exactly 50 years after the previous extra-inning homer in an All-Star Game, when Tony Perez hit a tiebreaking 15th-inning shot off Catfish Hunter in the NL's 2-1 win at Anaheim, California. His late game heroics earned him the 2017 Ted Williams All-Star Game Most Valuable Player award and with that came with Cano's choice of either a new Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport or a new Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and not surprisingly, the second basement chose the sports vehicle.
