The American League got timely home runs from Giancarlo Stanton and Byron Buxton to help them defeat the National League 3-2 in the 2022 Major League All-Star Game on Tuesday night.
Cleveland Guardians pitcher Emmanuel Clase closed down the door for the American League, striking out the side and holding the National League scoreless in the ninth inning at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
It’s the ninth consecutive win for the American League. Stanton, of the New York Yankees, was named the All-Star Game MVP for his clutch hitting. It was his first time receiving the honor.
