Only one Milwaukee Brewer was selected to represent the National League in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Tuesday night. A game that lasted ten innings and was won by the American League with a lead off home run in the tenth inning by Seattle Mariner Robinson Cano.
The one and only Milwaukee Brewer, closer Corey Knebel, did not pitch in the game. He was used heavily in Milwaukee’s games Saturday and Sunday, which may have played a factor in him not playing Tuesday night. It was however his first All-Star game and most would have assumed he would get a chance to play on the league’s biggest stage.
Add to the fact that the Brewers lead the National League Central Division by 5.5 games and had no other representation at the Mid-Summer Classic. For those Brewers fans that stayed up late to see if their only representative got in the game, it was a disappointing night.
