With Canó's home run in extra innings, the American League added its fifth straight win in the Classic of Half-Season by beating 2-1 to the stars of the National.
On Tuesday night, the 88th MLB All-Star Game was held at the Miami Marlins' home where, with a timely shot by Robinson Canó in the tenth inning, the American League defeated the 2-1 Nacional.
The slate moved until the fifth roll, when Miguel Sanó hit a pitch that sent the record holder to second base of the Orioles, Jonathan Schoop and this one put in a momentary advantage to the Americana. Already in the sixth, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina got the draw for Nacional with a solo homer.
Of course Mexico had to be present in this clash of superstars: in the seventh, Roberto Osuna, pitcher of the Toronto Blue Jays, climbed the mound to live up to his nickname. The Pride of Sinaloa hung the zero in its debut in an All-Star Game and thus the slate remained 1-1.
Already in extra innings the second base of the Mariners of Seattle, Robinson Canó, connected an entire stick back that it exploded the Marlins Park, giving thus the definitive advantage for the Americana.
Cano's home run is the first to appear in extra-innings of a All-Star Game 50 years ago; the last to get it was the Cuban Tony Perez in 1967, coincidentally, the expellotero threw the first ball at the Marlins Park in the game last night.
