NL jumped to the early lead, scoring twice in the first half, including Homer’s solo from Paul Goldschmidt. In fourth place, brilliant Yankees player Giancarlo Stanton hit a home double to tie the game – before Twins player Byron Buxton followed up with his own solo shot to put the AL ahead for good.
The NL didn’t hit the blow between the first and eighth innings and went down the order of the ninth against the closest Guardians Emmanuel Claas, who fired the side in 10 pitches.
Framber Valdez took the AL win, with Tony Gonsulin losing.

LOS ANGELES—Sometimes it’s okay to have dessert before dinner.
And so it was Monday night at Dodger Stadium, where a sweltering 88-degree day gave way to a breezy, idyllic evening in baseball’s most beautiful cathedral and the game’s annual saccharine festival, the Home Run Derby made largely for television. A way to gloriously celebrate stars and young elders alike.
It culminated with the great Juan Soto, who did nothing wrong had become The The story of this All-Star game, which threw his racket toward the sky blue Dodger after the darkest few days of his otherwise glamorous career, gave way to the Home Run Derby title.

“I think it’s great that we don’t have a salary cap if that’s the situation we’re getting into.”
Especially when Ohtani continues to prove that there is no limit to what he can do.
