Chris Archer of the Tampa Bay Rays was part of the American League’s winning effort in Tuesday night’s All-Star game.
Archer pitched an inning and a third and gave up a home run to Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutcheon. He struck out one.
There had been hope among the Rays that Archer would get the start, but he was the fourth pitcher used by the American League, coming after old teammate David Price and before Wade Davis, another ex-teammate, who got the victory.
Relief pitcher Brad Boxberger was the AL team as well but did not pitch.
