AL Wins All-Star Game with Record 10 Homers, Geraint Thomas Wins Stage 10 at Tour de France Taking Race Lead and Raptors Send DeRozen to Spurs in Trade for Leonard
The American League beat the National League 8-6 in the MLB All-Star Game last night. The game saw a record-breaking 10 home runs and Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros won MVP. The Associated Press quotes American League manager A.J. Hinch, also of the Astros commenting on the barrage of sluggers seen in the game:
"Standard operation nowadays, right? We're going to homer and punch out as an industry."
"There's a great love affair with both results. I mean, to kind of empty your tank and hit homers tonight at this event is probably the best thing imaginable," he said. "Just to have that kind of emotion that comes with the home run, especially when the big boys hit it and especially when the Astros hit it."
British cyclist Geraint Thomas has won stage 11 after a high mountain climb to La Rosière and in doing so has taken the lead at the Tour de France, BBC Sport reports. Belgian rider Greg van Avermaet, who had been leading since stage 3, is now ranked number 27 overall after this most recent stage.
The AP reports that Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs has been traded to the Toronto Raptors. In exchange, the Raptors sent DeMar DeRozen to the Spurs. DeRozen appeared to be upset by the news, writing on an Instagram story:
"Ain't no loyalty in this game," "Sell you out quick for a little bit of nothing ... ."
