Go-ahead HR nabs Bregman All-Star Game MVP

WASHINGTON — Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman has been named the All-Star Game MVP for his go-ahead homer in the 10th inning that sent the American League to an 8-6 victory.

Bregman’s homer off Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling was one of a record-breaking 10 in the game, but it put the AL ahead for good as baseball’s best put on a power exhibition in the late innings. His Astros teammate George Springer hit one out immediately after Bregman.

“I’ve seen it before. I haven’t seen it before in an All-Star Game like this,” said AL manager A.J. Hinch of Houston. “Pretty proud of them.”

The 24-year-old Bregman is a first-time All-Star in his third major league season. He hit 19 homers last year and has 20 so far this year.
