American League’s Hat trick Win at the MLB All-Star Game

American League’s Hat trick Win at the MLB All-Star Game

Pulling off a hat-trick win for the third year in a row, the American League emerged as the jubilant champions of the 86th annual MLB All-Star Game held in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 14, 2015.

It was the Royals who literally ran away with the game with outfielder Lorenzo Cain as the Royals star with double runs. Speaking about it, he said, “We got experience, we know what to expect now going into it. Hopefully if we can get back there, there won’t be any surprises at all. So, we just got to go in there, hopefully get to post season, compete, and we’ll see what happens.”

The Star of the Game, however, was Mike Trout from the AL side, the first player to take home the Midsummer Classic’s MVP award for the second consecutive year. He was quite modest about it though, shrugging it off with a simple, “It’s obviously a humbling honor with the MVPs.”

But celebrating right beside Trout was his pal, Todd Frazier, from the All-Star host Cincinnati Reds (NL’s starting third batsman) as the Home Run Derby champion just a day before. AL manager Ned Yost was more eloquent in his praise, “He can do anything that anybody can do on a baseball field. He can hit with power. He can run. He can drive the gap. He’s a great defender. He’s just special. When you look at Mike, you don’t look at a 23-year-old. You look at a guy that is one of the best baseball players on this planet.”

With the final score standing at AL 6, NL 3, the AL will open the upcoming World Series at their home ground; this will be the 10th time they do so in 13 years.
