CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The American League players defeated the National League team 2-1 in Tuesday night's game, with a little help from the Cleveland Indians All-Stars.
Five Indians players, including Jose Ramirez, Michael Brantley, Francisco Lindor, and Andrew Miller were honored during the All-Star Game. Corey Kluber was also selected to play, but did not because he pitched during the regular season recently. The players' highlights include:
- Jose Ramirez - Had two hits in two at-bats.
- Michael Brantley - Had one hit in two at-bats.
- Francisco Lindor - Dazzled with his smile.
- Andrew Miller - Earned a save while striking out one batter in one inning.
The coaches from the previous year's World Series teams are normally scheduled to coach the All-Star teams, but since Terry Francona recently underwent a heart procedure, he sat out. Cleveland's bench coach Brad Mills subbed in for Tito. His absence did not go unnoticed:
Let's hope the momentum and success for the Indians in the All-Star Game can carry on into the second half of the regular season and into the playoffs!
