A year after the All-Star Game drew its lowest TV rating ever, Major League Baseball will see how this telecast fared.
Each year, Chevrolet gives the victor of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game a new vehicle and for the 2017 All-Star Game, it was Seattle Mariners' second basement Robinson Cano.
NL starter Max Scherzer, Harper's Nationals teammate, pitched just one inning, but he was dominant, striking out two.
Bryce Harper made a nice catch and an even nice hair-flip. DESIGNATED HITTERS: Corey Dickerson, Rays (starter); Nelson Cruz, Mariners.
Meanwhile, Molina, the St. Louis Cardinals catcher who has won eight Gold Gloves and is an eight-time All-Star and a two-time World Series champ, went 1-for-1 with a solo home run and a walk.
Sale will become the first pitcher to make consecutive All-Star starts representing different teams. Sale escaped when he got the Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman to ground into a double play before striking out the Marlins' Marcell Ozuna on a pitch in the dirt.
Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano, who participated in Monday's Home Run Derby, used more luck than power to deliver the game's first RBI in the fifth.
Dodgers pitcher Alex Wood allowed the run.
The annual Home Run Derby will take place the night before, on July 10, also at Marlins Park.
This was Cano's first All-Star MVP award in his 8 times in the midseason battle of the league's superstars while being the 3rd time that a Mariners player has taken the honors - with Cano following Suzuki Ichiro and Ken Griffey Jr.
