Cano was added to the squad as an injury replacement and became the first player to hit an extra-inning homer in the All-Star game since Tony Perez exactly 50 years earlier. Mookie Betts doubled and scored the game's first run on a single by Miguel Sano (sah-NOH') in the fifth, one inning before Yadier (YAH'-dee-ehr) Molina tied it with a solo shot.
