MLB All-Star Game 2017: Robinson Cano homer pushes AL past NL in extra innings

The 2017 MLB regular season has been about offense and home runs.

The All-Star Game featured the latter as a turning point, but was mostly dominated by arms.

A pitchers duel–in a unique form–commenced in Miami. Through the first nine innings of the 2017 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, only one right scored for each side.

In the top of the 10th, ex-Yankee and future Hall of Fame second baseman Robinson Cano came through for the American League. The Mariners star rocketed a lead-off home run off Cubs closer Wade Davis to start extra innings, giving the AL a 2-1 lead.

Runs were at a premium in the 88th MLB All-Star Game.

After a scoreless start, the AL finally broke the ice with a run in the fifth. Miguel Sano hit a blooper down the right field line to plate a run off Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Alex Wood.

The NL tied the game in the sixth with a home run from St. Louis Cardinals catcher off Twins pitcher Ervin Santana.

Mets outfielder Michael Conforto struck out to end the ninth, leaving two runners on base and putting the tie game into extra innings.

It wasn’t a great night for the Baby Bombers.

Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge went 0-for-3 during his time in the game. He’s only the second Yankees outfielder to go 0-for-3 or worse
