The National League (NL) overturned its 10-year inferiority and won the American League (AL). Colorado Rockies catcher Elias Diaz, who hit a come-from-behind home run in his All-Star debut at-bat, was selected as a ‘star of stars’.
The NL All-Stars defeated the AL 토토 가입머니 즉시지급 All-Stars 3-2 at the 2023 Major League All-Star Game held at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, USA on the 12th (Korean time). Diaz, the protagonist of the final Two Run Four, was selected as the MVP of the match.
The first place was the AL All-Star. Yandi Diaz of the Tampa Bay Rays, who started as the fifth hitter and first baseman, hit a solo shot like a thunderbolt in the second inning. The NL balanced with a right-handed hit in the 4th inning by ‘400 batting challenger’ Luis Araez (Miami), but the AL took the lead again with a sacrifice fly by Bo Bisset (Toronto) in the 6th inning.
It was Diaz who overturned the losing match at once. In the 8th inning, Nick Castellanos (Philadelphia) walked on base and out of second base, which was created by a wild pitch, scooped up the splitter of opponent right-hander Felix Batista (Baltimore) at 140 km/h and crossed the left fence. It was the final two-run four that overturned the game.
It was an unforgettable day for him, who is in his 9th year in the big leagues. The Venezuelan-born Diaz made his big league debut in 2015 in a Pittsburgh Pirates uniform. He did not stand out and suffered the pain of being released in the 2019 season, but returned to the major leagues the following year with Colorado.
Diaz, who recorded a batting average of 0.277 with 9 homers and 45 RBIs in the first half, made a mark in team history by winning the award that day. He became the first All-Star Game MVP in the history of the Rockies, which was founded in 1993. Diaz’s performance was also sloppy at the NL level. Until this year, the NL was behind the AL with a record of 43 wins and 47 losses in the all-time All-Star Game. In particular, for 10 years from 2013, AL showed an overwhelming strength.
