After nine years, the NL is finally back in the all-star win column. The AL held the lead 2-1 up until maybe one of the last players you'd expect, changed that.
First time all-star, 32-year old Elias Díaz, hit an 8th-inning two run home run to put the National League ahead, coasting them to their first win in nine years. Díaz was selected to his first all-star game this season and made the most out of the chance he was given.
Díaz is slashing .277/.328/.435 with 9 home runs and 45 RBI on the year and was Colorado's representative in this years mid-summer classic.
That home run was enough for him to be given the All-Star Game's MVP.
"I was caught up in the moment, I had never really thought I would be in this position in my career, but to be able to contribute to the win and be the MVP, that's something really special." Díaz told Fox Sports.
Another All-Star Game is in the books with the long awaited trade deadline up next. There's a lot more baseball to be played as the Fall Classic is next up.
