In Los Angeles Wednesday night Major League Baseball’s National League and American League met for the 92nd Midsummer Classic All-Star game. It’s the first time in more than forty years since the Midsummer Classic was last played in Los Angeles. Initially the Midsummer Classic in Los Angeles was scheduled for the 2020 season, but cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
With a 3-2 win Tuesday night, the American League has now won 21 of the past 24 All-Star Games.
Tonight’s game opened up with Betts hitting a single to center at the top of the first to drive in Acuña and put the National League on top 0-1. Then Goldschmidt hit the first dinger of the game 415 feet to left field to put the National League on top 0-2.
After three scoreless innings, Stanton for the American League, in the bottom of the fourth hit a dinger 457 feet to drive in Ramírez and make it a 2-2 game. But with Buxton hitting a dinger 425 feet to left the American League took a 3-2 lead.
