AL 3 – NL 2

It’s been a great season thus far for Giancarlo Stanton and the New York Yankees. The Bronx Bombers owned the best record in baseball at 64-28, and have obliterated the competition with a 13-game lead over their closest competition in the AL East, the Tampa Bay Rays. Tuesday night was just another Yankees moment, as Giancarlo Stanton captured All-Star Game MVP honors for hitting a two-run homer that tied the game at two a piece.

Byron Buxton of the Minnesota Twins hit the deciding homer later in the inning.

Other notable Yankees: Aaron Judge went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts; while Jose Trevino with 1-for-2. Nelson Cortes pitched an inning in relief with a walk and two strikeouts; Clay Holmes tossed two-thirds of an inning, giving up a hit.

Gerrit Cole did not pitch in the game.

As for the Mets, they had a quiet night all around. Pete Alonso had one plate appearance, a walk, while Jeff McNeil was 0-for-1 with a hit by pitch. McNeil’s getting hit by a pitch stirred up Mets fans online, who bemoaned yet another Met player getting hit by a pitch; the Amazin’s lead the league in hit by pitches.

Edwin Diaz did not get into the game to pitch. Starling Marte was a scratch from participating.
