Houston teammates Alex Bregman and George Springer homered on consecutive pitches from the Los Angeles Dodgers' Ross Stripling to start the 10th inning, part of a record 10 long balls in all, and the American League beat the NL 8-6 Tuesday night to extend its All-Star Game winning streak to six.
    
Aaron Judge and Mike Trout hit early solo homers for the AL, and Jean Segura hit a three-run drive for a 5-2 lead in the eighth.
    
After solo shots by Willson Contreras, Trevor Story and Christian Yelich for the NL, Scooter Gennett hit a tying two-run homer in the ninth off winner Edwin Diaz. Joey Votto added another home run in the bottom of the 10th  off J.A. Happ, who got his first big league save.
    
Michael Brantley's sacrifice fly that capped a three-run top of the 10th was the only run not driven in by a homer.
    
The AL has won 18 of the last 21 All-Star Games played to a decision, taking a 44-43 lead in the series, with two ties.

Jean Segura hit a three-run homer after first baseman Joey Votto's error gave him another chance to give the A.L. a 5-2 lead late.

Votto dropped a foul popup along the NL dugout railing with runners on first and second and a 3-2 count on Segura, who launched the next pitch over the left-field wall.

It was the first hit with a runner in scoring position in the game. All seven runs were scored via home runs, the first four coming on solo shots.

Segura went deep off Josh Hader. He became the third player in the game to homer in his first career All-Star at-bat, following Willson Contreras and Trevor Story.

Mike Trout and Aaron Judge also homered for the A.L.

Twins starter Jose Berrios threw a scoreless 5th inning.
