The National League appeared to have a glimmer of hope that it could snap its losing streak in the All-Star Game to the American League. Giancarlo Stanton, Byron Buxton and a group of standout AL arms shut down that optimism quickly.
The Junior Circuit fell behind early, but Stanton hit a two-run, no-doubt home run in the top of the fourth to tie up the game at two. Buxton followed him right away with a solo shot to left to give the American League the 3-2 advantage.

From there, the American League pitchers held the NL without a hit until the bottom of the eighth, and Emmanuel Clase slammed the door in the ninth by striking out the side in order to deliver the 3-2 win for the AL.
Stanton was named All-Star Game MVP as the American League claimed its ninth straight win in the All-Star Game.

The National League jumped all over AL Cy Young favorite Shane McClanahan after a scoreless top half of the first inning from Clayton Kershaw. Ronald Acuna Jr. started the frame with a double and scored when the next batter, Mookie Betts, hit an RBI single up the middle to give the NL its first lead in an All-Star Game since 2016. Betts was eliminated on a double play by Machado, but Paul Goldschmidt hit a solo home run to put the NL up 2-0.
The 2-0 advantage was the largest lead the NL has held since it won the 2012 All-Star Game 8-0.
From that point on, however, the NL was kept out of the hit column. Austin Riley singled in the bottom of the eighth off Michael King to give the Senior Circuit its first base hit since the first inning. The next three batters were set down in order to retire the side.
Framber Valdez was given the win, while Tony Gonsolin was given the loss. Jose Ramirez was the only player in the All-Star game with multiple hits.
