Astros’ Alex Bregman wins All-Star Game MVP after go-ahead HR in 10th

Bregman’s homer was one of a record-breaking 10 in the game, and it put the AL ahead for good, as baseball’s best put on a power exhibition in the late innings. Bregman’s Astros teammate George Springer hit one out immediately after Bregman.nfl cheap jerseys nike

“There’s a great love affair with both results. I mean, to kind of empty your tank and hit homers tonight at this event is probably the best thing imaginable,” AL manager A.J. Hinch of the Astros said. “Just to have that kind of emotion that comes with the home run, especially when the big boys hit it and especially when the Astros hit it.”9

Bregman and Springer homered off losing pitcher Ross Stripling of the Dodgers — that’s kind of how last season ended too, with Houston battering Los Angeles’ pitchers in the World Series.

“I took a cutter down the middle first pitch, then kind of went into battle mode and was just trying to put a line drive in play and it left the yard. It was crazy. A lot of fun,” Bregman said. “Normally when we go back-to-back, I have to hit it after Springer does because he leads off, so it was pretty cool to see them go back-to-back.”nfl nike jerseys for cheap

Bregman smiled all around the bases. He is familiar with this city, his grandfather having been the general counsel for the old Washington Senators.

“My dad grew up on Ted Williams’ lap. So to see Ted Williams Most Valuable Player on this trophy is pretty special,” Bregman said.

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