The 2022 MLB All-Star Game brought baseball’s best to Los Angeles for a showcase featuring fruitful home runs, mic’d up moments and more.

Hollywood already boasts plenty of star power but on Tuesday the MLB All-Star Game upped the ante with the best baseball players in the world descending on Los Angeles.

On a perfect Southern California summer evening, the American League All-Stars and National League All-Stars all set out to make their mark. And quite a few of them did. Even the umpires had their moment.

Whether you watched the game live or are here to catch up on the action, these are three awesome things you may have missed:

1. Byron Buxton won someone a lot of beer

When he hit a home run in the top of the fourth inning for the AL, Byron Buxton became someone’s new hero. More specifically, a beero.

Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

2. Players say the darndest things, MLB All-Star Game edition

Putting mics on players produces some of the best content. It’s a fact.

Jose Trevino and Nestor Cortes provided an interesting look at the dynamics between a pitcher and catcher during the game.

Meanwhile, Alek Manoah brought the heat with his memorable responses to his pitches.

Liam Hendriks made sure to get his third out ball from Julio Rodriguez at all cost!

The All-Star Game may have its flaws but these kinds treats make it all worth it.

3. The AL All-Stars cannot be stopped

It took back-to-back home runs from Giancarlo Stanton and Buxton to erase a 2-0 deficit, but the American League All-Stars did not let their impressive winning streak die on Tuesday night.

With a 3-2 victory, the AL won their ninth All-Star game in a row. That makes 21 All-Star game victories for the AL in the last 26 going back to 1997.

Mookie Betts and Paul Goldschmidt put the NL up in the first inning with an RBI single and a home run respectively. It looked for a second like the NL would finally get their revenge. Instead, it turned out to be more of the same disappointment.
