Marlins ace Sandy Alcantara made the most of his brief appearance in Tuesday’s Baseball All-Star Game.
He entered the game in the second inning and retired the American League side in order, including a three-pitch strikeout of Yankees star (and former Marlin) Giancarlo Stanton. He also struck out Byron Buxton on four pitches before getting Chicago’s Tim Anderson on a ground out.
Stanton went on to earn the game’s Most Valuable Player award after hitting a two-run homer a couple of innings later.
Alcantra threw 13 pitches in all, including 10 for strikes. His fastball averaged 99 miles per hour.
