Washington: Back-to-back home runs by Houston Astros stars Alex Bregman and George Springer, part of a record 10-homer slugfest, powered the American League over the National League 8-6 in Tuesday’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game. Each side blasted a record five homers to shatter the old combined All-Star Game mark of six last managed in 1971, but the decisive blasts came in the 10th inning from two members of the World Series champion Astros. Two outs from defeat in the ninth inning, the National League equalised at 5-5 on pinch-hitter Scooter Gennett’s two-run homer off American League relief pitcher Edwin Diaz.
