Astros' Alex Bregman Leads AL to Victory in All-Star Game

posted by SportsTalk790 - 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Houston teammates Alex Bregman and George Springer homered on consecutive pitches from the Los Angeles Dodgers' Ross Stripling to start the 10th inning, part of a record 10 long balls in all, and the American League beat the NL 8-6 Tuesday night to extend its All-Star Game winning streak to six.

Michael Brantley's sacrifice fly that capped a three-run top of the 10th was the only run not driven in by a homer. Bregman was named the MVP.

The AL has won 18 of the last 21 All-Star Games played to a decision, taking a 44-43 lead in the series, with two ties.
