All-Star Week concluded with the big MLB All-Star Game at Nationals Park in Southeast D.C. Tuesday night.

Houston Astros outfielder George Springer (4) celebrates his solo home run in the tenth inning during the Major League Baseball All-star Game, Tuesday, July 17, 2018 in Washington.

The American League led most of the game, but the National League caught up on several occasions.

The two Astros homers were part of a record 10 home runs hit in the 2018 edition of the star-studded exhibition game. Making the score 2-1, the bomb by Contreras marked the third solo home run of the game.

Charlie Morton pitched two innings late, giving up two home runs. With the continued success of MLB Advanced Media and MLB Network, MLB continues to find innovative ways for its fans to enjoy America's National Pastime and a truly global game.

Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer started for the National League in his home park, where teammate Bryce Harper won the Home Run Derby in an epic comeback Monday night.

The American League consists of the following teams: Baltimore Orioles; Boston Red Sox; Chicago White Sox; Cleveland Indians; Detroit Tigers; Houston Astros; Kansas City Royals; Los Angeles Angels; Minnesota Twins; New York Yankees; Oakland Athletics; Seattle Mariners; Tampa Bay Rays; Texas Rangers; and Toronto Blue Jays. With the dinger, Contreras became just the fourth Cub in the past 50 years to homer in the All-Star Game, as well as the first Cubs catcher and the sixth Venezuelan player to ever do so.
