Ohtani hit 100 miles per hour with his fastball, Guerrero hit a 468-foot-long ball from the home plate and beat the American 5-2 in the Major Baseball All-Star Game on Tuesday night.

From the start of the game, Ohtani, who became the first all-star to reach two positions, attracted the attention of fans and players of both teams. He was perfect on the mound, signed the win and called with two putdowns.

Ohtani teammate Jared Walsh with Los Angeles డ్ recorded the rescue with his glove. Chris Bryant slipped to catch an arrow as the cushions occupied all of the eighth inning.

Mike Junino hit home run for the American, who had his eighth consecutive win in the mid-season classic. American is now 46-43-2 in this series.

JT scored four goals for Realmuto National.

At 27 years old and in his fourth season in the Majors, Ohtani shined. He leads both leagues with 33 homers and started pitching 4-1 at 13. Supporters from Babe Ruth in 1919 and 1920 did not see similar demonstrations in either location.

“It was the best, most memorable experience,” Ohtani said. Obviously I haven’t played in the Playoffs or the World Series yet so when I get there, it definitely transcends this moment. But it was memorable. ”

In Monday’s home run competition, Ohtani hit the ball 513 feet from the home plate and sent it to Nolan Arenado at 100.2 mph on Tuesday.

“He’s better than expected,” Arenado said.

Major League Baseball made the event even more special by allowing Ohtani to remain on the lineup as a designated hitter after being replaced as a pitcher.

Along with Lance Lynn, Kyle Gibson, Nathan Evoldi, Gregory Soto, Chris Basit, Andrew Kittridge, Matt Burns and Liam Hendrix, Ohtani gave his efforts only eight hits to the national stars.

Hendrix got saved and he was helped by a lucky jump that turned the bad pitch out at second base.

National’s hitters were hit 12 times, American’s hitters only three times.

American has won 20 of 23 All-Star games and one of those games ended in a tie.

The Guerrero slap in the third inning came at the expense of Corbin Burns. This is the longest all-star home run since 2015, when the Statcast Calculator began measuring strikes.

The Guerrero circuit is also 200E All-Star Game History and Toronto Blue Jays First Baseman Following in the footsteps of his father Vladimir, who hit a long ball against Brad Penny at the 2006 All-Star Game.

Bobby Bonds (1973) and Barry Bonds (1998) as well as Ken Griffy Sr. (1980) and Ken Griffy Sr. (1992) are the other father-son duo who made Homer in the All-Star Game.

Guerrero added an RBI with a put in the fifth inning. His work allowed him to get his hands on the title of Most Valuable Player of the Evening.

“Dad, this trophy is for you,” Guerrero said when Ted Williams received the trophy.

Xander Bogarts and Marcus Semion, thanks to a single point, completed the score for the American.
