2022 MLB All-Star Game result: AL continues winning thanks to Giancarlo Stanton, Byron Paxton Homers

The Major League Soccer, building on the power of back-to-back home strikes by Giancarlo Stanton and Byron Buxton, continued its dominance of the All-Star Game Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium. AL won the 2022 MLB All-Star Game, 3-2, making it a nine-game winning streak over the National League in the midsummer classic.

Stanton, an All-Star Game MVP, hit Homer’s 457-foot Dodgers righty Tony Gonsolin in the fourth inning. Buxton, the next hitter, followed up with a 425-foot blast of his own to give AL a one-time lead that the team wouldn’t give up.

The National League is off to a strong start. Dribbling legend Clayton Kershaw made the start in front of his home crowd and scored a goalless first half (which featured Shuhei Ohtani). NL got two runs at the bottom of the first, thanks to the RBI song from Mookie Betts and Homer solo from first Cardinals Paul Goldschmidt. NL has had four hits from AL writer Shane McClanahan, but has only had one hit in the last eight innings.

Now for some takeaways from the 2022 All-Star Game.

Stanton and Buxton made history

Thanks to Homer Goldschmidt I, NL held a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning. However, things quickly changed thanks to Giancarlo Stanton of the Yankees and Byron Paxton of the twins.

With a one-and-one exit, Dodgers host Tony Ginsulin served up Stanton by a 0-2 break, and Stanton found it to his liking:

It’s a 457-foot smash mission that reached the circumference of the seats Stanton was sitting in when he was visiting Dodger Stadium as a kid. It also left the bat at 111.7 mph, According to Sarah Langeis the highest Statcast exit speed ever recorded in an All-Star game.

That tied the match, and Buxton, the next hitter, gave AL the 3-2 lead with this blast of Fastball 2-1 over the area:

And we say above the area we mean it categorically:

In tandem, these two circles made their first All-Star game since Alex Bregman and George Springer of the Astros pulled them in 2018 and seventh overall. Consider the significance of the Stanton-Buxton range, which is unsurpassed, at least in relation to the classic midsummer:

Not coincidentally, Stanton and Buxton combined for 47 Homer in the first half of this season.

We couldn’t see the new tie-breaking format

Earlier this week, the MLB announced that the All-Star Game’s relationships would not be defined by additional roles, as has been the practice in the past, but by an abbreviated Home Run Derby. In the event of a tie after nine innings, each team will choose three players, and each of them will receive three strokes. After all six players have had a chance to racket within three rounds, the team with the highest total will be declared the winner.

Needless to say, this new wrinkle was greeted with enthusiasm from fans, and many of us were undoubtedly hoping for a Tuesday night tie. It didn’t quite happen, although AL did keep its lead one round over the last five and a half runs.

At eight, NL pulled off its first hit since the first half—a straight Austin Riley single from Clay Holmes to drive the frame—but Holmes recovered to get the next two finishes, and then Liam Hendrix came along to pinpoint the running potential. In the ninth minute, the closest goalkeeper Emmanuel Klass shot from the side to block.

Had we managed to equalize, Ty France, Julio Rodríguez and Kyle Tucker would have all moved to AL, while Pete Alonso and Ronald Acuña Jr. And Kyle Schwarber has gone to the NL in the mini derby. Advantage NL, given that they had passed three actual Home Run Derby participants? Unfortunately, we’ll never know.
