NL 1, AL 2: Cano would have denied the D-Backs home field in the World Series they’ll be in but that’s not a thing anymore

No Diamondbacks really embarrassed themselves, so we got that going for us

Miguel Sano got the AL on the board first in the 5th inning with a two out blooper off of Alex Wood, a Dodger so ha ha, that landed in a Bermuda Triangle of Washington Nationals.

Yadier Molina tied it up in the Bottom of the 6th with a solo shot off of Ervin Santana.

Zack Greinke pitched the 6th inning for the National League. He threw a scoreless frame with a strikeout and a brief interruption via Nelson Cruz opting to take a photo with Joe West. He then flied out to Ender Inciarte to end the inning (And boy, Ender Inciarte catching a ball that Greinke threw was probably a thing that should have happened more, huh?)

Jake Lamb came up in the bottom of the 9th with a runner on second against Craig Kimbrel and walked, to bring up Goldy, who had previously flied out to left in his other at-bat. He flew out to deep center because Pitcher’s Parks are dumb things that shouldn’t exist and goddammit that would have been so cool I am mad online.

Michael Conforto then struck out and into extras we go! Robinson Cano hit a solo shot off of Wade Davis to start off the inning to make it 2-1 AL.

Andrew Miller came in and got the final three outs and the AL won their fifth straight All-Star Game.

Robbie Ray didn’t get into this game because Joe Maddon, and this is a totally unbiased and level headed analysis, is a total butthorn.

The Diamondbacks are back in action in Atlanta Kennesaw-ish on Friday as the second half gets underway.
