Josh Hader apologized for sending out racist and homophobic tweets as a teenager in 2011-2012 after Tuesday night's 2018 MLB All-Star Game.

Hader's ugly past on Twitter began popping up as he struggled through a three-run eighth inning in the National League's eventual 8-6 loss to the American League. "When you’re a kid, you tweet what’s on your mind," the Brewers' setup man told reporters late Tuesday. "I was young, immature, and stupid." Hader said he will address the issue with his teammates before play resumes for the second half and is "ready for any consequences" that might come.

Aaron Judge homered and drew a walk Tuesday as the American League topped the National League in the All-Star Game.

Judge's solo shot in the top of the second inning off Nationals starter Max Scherzer kicked off a big night of scoring for both sides. 10 total home runs were hit, a new record for an All-Star Game. Judge heads into the second half with an excellent .937 OPS, 25 home runs, and 60 RBI in 93 regular-season games.

Mike Trout hit a solo homer and drew a walk in Tuesday night's All-Star Game.

The best player in baseball came to play. Trout went yard over the left-center field wall in the top of the third inning off Mets starter Jacob deGrom, who finished the first half of the season with an MLB-best 1.68 ERA. It was the second home run in an All-Star Game for Trout, and he's now managed a hit in each of the last six Midsummer Classics.

Scooter Gennett hit a game-tying two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning of Tuesday night's All-Star Game.

Gennett went yard off Mariners closer Edwin Diaz to tie things up in the ninth, but the American League would rally for three runs in the top of the 10th, eventually winning 8-6. Gennett put up a stellar .326/.373/.521 batting line with 16 home runs and 63 RBI over 92 games in the first half and should fetch the Reds a decent return if they decide to trade him ahead of the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

Jean Segura singled and hit a three-run homer in the top of the eighth inning as the American League beat the National League in Tuesday night's All-Star Game.

The three-run shot off Brewers left-hander Josh Hader was one of 10 home runs hit in this Midsummer Classic, a new record. Segura became the sixth Mariners player to homer in an All-Star Game, joining Ken Griffey Jr. (1992), Edgar Martinez (1997), Alex Rodriguez (1998), Ichiro Suzuki (2007), and Robinson Cano (2017). The 28-year-old shortstop was only added to the American League All-Star roster after winning the Final Vote. He will head into the second half with the second-most hits in MLB.

Alex Bregman belted a go-ahead solo homer in the top of the 10th inning Tuesday as the American League beat the National League 8-6 in the 2018 MLB All-Star Game in Washington, D.C.

Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett tied things up in the bottom of the ninth with a two-run homer off Mariners closer Edwin Diaz, but Bregman and the American League All-Stars quickly got revenge, plating three runs off Dodgers starter Ross Stripling in the first frame of extras to seal the deal. Bregman and his Astros teammate George Springer went back-to-back to lead off the top of the 10th and then Jean Segura and Mitch Moreland both singled, with Segura eventually being driven in on a sacrifice fly for the AL's eighth run of the affair. There were 10 total home runs hit on the night, a new All-Star Game record. The previous record was six. Bregman was named the MVP.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic and FOX reports that Manny Machado will indeed be traded to the Dodgers.

Rosenthal interviewed Machado during the sixth inning of Tuesday night's All-Star Game and the 26-year-old superstar spoke about the Orioles in the past tense while acknowledging that he hadn't heard anything official. Moments later, Rosenthal wrote on Twitter that the trade to the Dodgers is "happening." MLB discourages teams from making big announcements on the day of the Midsummer Classic, and that's probably the only thing that is keeping the full trade agreement under wraps. 21-year-old outfield prospect Yusniel Diaz is expected to be part of the O's return package. We haven't heard word about any other names that might be included. Look for this deal to be made official on Wednesday.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Dodgers are "increasingly likely" to land Manny Machado.

Rosenthal notes that several of the other teams tied to Machado also "expect that outcome." There were a number of reports Tuesday suggesting a last-minute play from the Phillies, but the Dodgers apparently have the best offer on the table and it sounds like the medicals and paperwork might already be done. Look for something official by Wednesday afternoon. Major League Baseball frowns on its clubs making big announcements on the day of the All-Star Game.
