Tuesday night was the 2019 MLB All Star Game. The American League faced off against the National League at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. For the seventh straight year the American League has come away victorious, defeating their MLB counterpart 4-3.

Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong factored a bit into the final score. The NL scored two of their three runs in the top of the eighth inning. Yasmani Grandal and David Dahl began the inning with a walk and single, respectively, off pitcher Brad Hand. Jeff McNeil flied out to give the NL their first out of the inning. DeJong entered the game for the first time and worked a walk to load the bases. After a strikeout from Charlie Blackmon, Home Run Derby winner Pete Alonso knocked in two. DeJong advanced to second on the play, then stole third where he was left stranded after a Mike Moustakas popfly.

Dejong also was part of a nifty double-play to end the eighth inning:

Aroldis Chapman struck out the final three batters of the game, breaking an All Star Game record set by Bob Gibson:

None of it really matters though, thankfully, since the game does not decide home field advantage anymore, which means we can just focus on fun!
