– A record 10 home runs. A slew of strikeouts.The all-or-nothing All-Star Game mirrored what baseball has become.Astros teammates Alex Bregman and George Springer homered on consecutive pitches to begin the 10th inning Alex Tuch Jersey Kids , and the American League beat the National League 8-6 Tuesday night for its sixth straight win.”Standard operation nowadays, right?” said AL manager A.J. Hinch of Houston. ”We’re going to homer and punch out as an industry.””There’s a great love affair with both results. I mean, to kind of empty your tank and hit homers tonight at this event is probably the best thing imaginable,” he said. ”Just to have that kind of emotion that comes with the home run, especially when the big boys hit it and especially when the Astros hit it.”Mike Trout, Aaron Judge and Jean Segura also connected for the AL in a game where every run except one scored on a homer.Scooter Gennett hit a tying two-run shot off Seattle closer Edwin Diaz in the bottom of the ninth. Joey Votto, Willson Contreras, Trevor Story, Christian Yelich also homered for the NL.There had never been more than six homers in an All-Star Game since Babe Ruth hit the very first one in 1933.One of the homers came off Milwaukee’s Josh Hader. After the game, the 24-year-old reliever took responsibility for racist and homophobic tweets that resurfaced while he was pitching.Hader said he was immature at age 17 when several of the tweets were posted. Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem said he had spoken to Hader, and the league would have no comment before Wednesday.”There’s no excuse for what was said,” Hader said. ”I’m deeply sorry for what I’ve said and what’s been going on. It doesn’t reflect any of my beliefs going on now.”While several sluggers went deep, not everything went their way. Starters Max Scherzer and Chris Sale and the relievers combined to fan 15 in the first 4 1/2 innings, and there were 25 strikeouts overall.Fitting, because this season is on pace to become the first with more strikeouts than hits, a year after a record number of home runs.”You’re facing power pitchers right now, so that’s kind of what you expect: hit-or-miss with these guys,” Boston’s J.D. Martinez said.Martinez, who leads the majors in homers and RBIs Nick Jensen Jersey , singled and struck out in his two at-bats.Orioles shortstop Manny Machado had fun, pulling out a camera to snap a selfie at second base after Matt Kemp doubled. By Wednesday, they could be teammates – Baltimore seems ready to trade Machado, with the Dodgers and Phillies in the mix.”I’m just trying to enjoy this moment with the American League guys,” Machado told FOX in the dugout. ”If this is the last time (in a Baltimore uniform), hopefully I treated them well and did everything I can for the organization.”Major League Baseball, meanwhile, seemed to take a selfie of itself, with all the homers and strikeouts. This was MLB 2.018, an update that’s not appealing to everyone.”Some of us are going to get them and they’re going to get us. It’s just how it goes,” Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman said.Declining attendance is a concern, and the sport’s owners worry that slower games with less action on the bases are taking a toll.A day after hometown star Bryce Harper electrified the crowd by winning the Home Run Derby, it was eerily quiet for most of the evening at Nationals Park. Harper didn’t excite the fans, either, fanning in his two at-bats.The popular Presidents Race drew the biggest cheer in the middle innings, with the big-headed George Washington character prevailing.The only thing missing was a bevy of defensive shifts. Overloaded infields are the norm now, Hinch and NL manager Dave Roberts of the Dodgers pretty much played things straight up.Bregman and Springer homered off losing pitcher Ross Stripling of the Dodgers – that’s kind of how last year ended, too, with Houston battering Los Angeles pitchers in the World Series.Bregman smiled all around the bases and earned MVP honors. He’s familiar with this city Scott Darling Jersey , his grandfather having been the general counsel for the old Washington Senators.”My dad grew up on Ted Williams’ lap. So to see Ted Williams Most Valuable Player on this trophy is pretty special,” Bregman said.Segura’s three-run homer in the eighth landed in the bullpen and broke a 2-all tie. The Seattle infielder popped up the previous pitch, but Votto, Cincinnati’s reliable first baseman, dropped it for an error as he approached the dugout railing. Segura then connected off Hader.Judge homered in the second off Scherzer, the Nationals ace who became the first reigning Cy Young Award winner to start an All-Star Game in his home park. There was another judge at the park besides the Yankees slugger – Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.”It’s tough to barrel up some balls when you’ve got some of the best pitchers in the game throwing against you and you don’t really have a scouting report. You’re just going up there swinging,” Judge said.Trout kept up his All-Star excellence, tagging Mets righty Jacob deGrom. A two-time MVP in his event, Trout is 7 for 15 with five extra-base hits and three walks in these games.Diaz wound up with the win and Toronto’s J.A. Happ got his first pro save after giving up Votto’s homer.The AL won for the 18th time in 21 games played to a decision, and leads the series 44-43-2. Not since the early 1960s has the AL been ahe For most of their half-century in existence, the Phoenix Suns have coveted a big-time center.In 1969, they lost the coin flip with Milwaukee for Lew Alcindor, now known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and chose Neal Walk at No. 2. The closest they came was Alvan Adams, an All-Star on some very good teams. Shaquille O’Neal made a cameo appearance late in his career.But a big, young franchise center to build around eluded them – until now. With the first overall pick in the draft for the first time in franchise history, the Suns believe they have their man in 7-foot-1, 250-pound Deandre Ayton Jimmy Vesey Jersey , whose size, athleticism and multiple skills made him the obvious No. 1 overall pick Thursday night.Suns general manager Ryan McDonough called it ”a historic night for the franchise.”There was a big cheer from the crowd gathered at Talking Stick Resort Arena for a party to celebrate the highest pick in franchise history. They’ve chosen second overall twice.”Having my name called to be the first pick for the Phoenix Suns was mind-blowing,” Ayton said. ”Having all the confidence and leading up to that point when I saw (NBA Commissioner) Adam Silver came out, I was just waiting for my name, and when he called it, my mind went blank. … and I saw the reaction on my mom’s face. It was just priceless.”The Suns also got the 10th overall pick, moving up six spots in a trade with Philadelphia to get guard/forward Mikal Bridges of Villanova. Phoenix sent the No. 16 pick, guard Zhaire Smith of Texas Tech, to the 76ers along with Miami’s unprotected first-round pick in 2021.Ayton will join Devin Booker and Josh Jackson as the core of young talent that the Suns hope will pull them out of their long decline. Phoenix has missed the playoffs the last eight seasons and their 21-61 record last season was the worst in the NBA and second-worst in franchise history.”The team in general is a very young and hungry team,” Ayton said. ”We just have to stick together, get a great chemistry and start a winning legacy in Phoenix.”In Brooklyn for the announcement, Ayton wore a sports jacket with an array of colors on the inside lining.”There’s a few flags in there,” Ayton said. ”My dad is from Nigeria, my mom is Jamaican and Bahamian, so I’m helping all those countries in one. I’m not just a Bahamian. I’m Nigerian and Jamaican. So I just want to let the world know that.”Ayton was born in the Bahamas but left at age 12, a basketball prodigy who stayed in several Southern California homes and played with various basketball programs, including a season as a teammate of Marvin Bagley III at Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix.Ayton, a month shy of his 20th birthday, was the Pac-12 player of the year at Arizona last season Brayden Schenn Jersey , averaging 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds per game. But the Wildcats made an early exit in the NCAA Tournament, losing to Buffalo. Ayton also had to tune out the noise from a federal investigation that ensnared an Arizona assistant coach.But he emerged above the rest in the pre-draft process.Ayton worked out for only one team, the Suns, and turned on the charm with the media afterward.Don’t worry, Ayton assured everyone that day, ”I know I’m going No. 1.”That workout, McDonough said, was the deal-maker.”He was first on our board coming into the workout,” McDonough said, ”and then he blew us away in the workout, which I think you guys probably gathered from my tone. I’m usually pretty stoic but I was watching a workout that just was incredible.”McDonough called Ayton ”just a phenomenal physical talent. Watching him play and then working him out and interacting with him just checked every box for us.”The 6-foot-7 Bridges is a bonus, a third-team All-American and a member of the 2018 all-Final Four team. When the 76ers drafted him, it looked like a feel-good hometown story since he’s from Philadelphia and his mother Tyneeha Rivers was vice president for human resources for the 76ers.Bridges even appeared at a news conference to talk about staying in Philadelphia.But the Suns wanted him badly and kept pushing for the deal. Finally, the 76ers agreed and Bridges was bound for the desert.He said there were no hard feelings about the trade.”I’m excited. It’s a business and you’ve got a lot of talent going down there,” Bridges said. ”I can’t wait to start this up.”With the 31st pick in the draft, the first in the second round, Phoenix chose point guard Elie Okobo of France, a 20-year-old sharpshooter who scored 44 in a French playoff game. And with the 59th pick – next-to-last overall – the Suns selected forward George King of Colorado.— Womens Seattle Seahawks Jerseys
