Home run record set as AL tops NL in All-Star Game

Aaron Judge hitting an All Star Game home run

2018 MLB All-Star Game: American League Wins 8-6

However, Judge got to Scherzer in the second inning with a 399-foot solo bomb to left.

Welcome to the unofficial Night 2 of the Home Run Derby.

It was the fifth time the All-Star Game had been played in Washington, and the first since the club's 33-year hiatus away from the nation's capital. Segura took advantage of the new life given to him after Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto dropped a fouled pop-up on the previous pitch, for which Votto was charged with an error. The American League had a chance to finish off the National League when leading by two runs in the bottom of the ninth.

Interestingly, the Astros duo homered off Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling, which, of course, brought out the memories of last October.

Last fall, the Houston Astros won its first World Series, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Fall Classic. After Segura's three-run homer in the eighth, Christian Yelich of the Brewers hit another solo homer off Morton in the bottom of the inning to cut the lead to 5-3.

The Astros' Alex Bregman and George Springer added back-to-back homers in the top of the 10th. The back-to-back jacks put the American League up by two runs.

How many home runs would he hit? Hoskins pumped most of his drives into the left-field seats, where it's 336 feet down the line. Unless you're a die-hard fan of one of the eight players or the seven teams they represented, you - like me - didn't care.

Every run save one scored on a homer.

Votto went from goat to GOAT at Nationals Park on Tuesday and the Reds' rebuild went from bust to boom in 96 games. The 409-footer to right, which came against Toronto Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ, served as the game's longest round-tripper.

Neither squad plated a run for the next three innings, before the National League's lumber heated up. There were 10 homers hit overall, five from each team, a new All-Star record.

"There's a great love affair with both results".

So while Chicago may not have boasted more than half the National League starting lineup as they did two years ago, this might have been even better.
