All-Star Game 2018: Rare rally, error lead to Jean Segura's three-run shot
The Mariners shortstop came through with a huge shot for the AL
WASHINGTON -- Heading to the top of the eighth inning, the All-Star Game was tied, 2-2, on four solo homers. There were a few other hits, but neither team had been able to string a few together. The rallies were sparse. Really, the times it was closest to a rally came in the first inning when Mike Trout drew a walk and J.D. Martinez singled with two outs and when the NL got a walk and hit by pitch after a home run in the seventh.
Then the AL eighth happened.
Segura put himself in some pretty nice company when it came to shortstops in the All-Star Game.
Good for Segura. The Final Vote winner in the AL is having an excellent season, slashing .323/.354/.458 with 25 doubles, seven homers, 14 steals and 66 runs this year while serving as a table-setter for the Mariners. Those are the same Mariners currently in playoff position, and it's the franchise with the longest playoff drought in MLB.
