Major League Baseball played its 2019 All-Star Game on Tuesday at Progressive Field in Cleveland. The American League defeated the National League by a 4-3 score, extending its winning streak in the Midsummer Classic to seven games in a row. The AL has also won 11 of 14 dating back to 2003, the year after the game infamously ended in a tie.
From there, the offense started to tick up. Charlie Blackmon homered to put the NL on the board in the sixth. The AL struck for a pair of runs in the seventh. First, Xander Bogaerts hit into a double play that scored Matt Chapman. Later, Joey Gallo homered on the first pitch he saw from left-handed reliever Will Smith.
