The American League beat the National League in baseball’s All Star Game last night by a final of 2-1. The game went ten innings, and Seattle’s Robinson Cano, the game’s MVP, hit the game winning home run.
Six Astros were selected to the American League squad. Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, and George Springer all started for the AL and went 0-for-2. Springer says despite being hitless that experience was a lot of fun.
“You don’t know how many of these come around. So have some fun and enjoy it,” Springer said.
Correa echoed Springer’s sentiments.
“It was the best experience of my career. It’s really humbling to be able to be here and share this moment with my family,” Correa said.
While starting pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers Jr. did not appear in the game, reliever Chris Devenski did. He threw a scoreless eighth inning and recorded a strikeout.
The 60 and 29 Astros are back in action on Friday night at Minute Maid Park, opening up a weekend series with the Minnesota Twins.
