The American League won its annual All-Star Game Tuesday night without any help at all from the Tampa Bay Rays.

Alex Colome, the relief pitcher from the Rays, didn’t get into the game as AL won a 4-2 decision.

The AL used 10 pitchers in the game, won by Corey Kluber. Not one of them was Colome, who had saved 19 straight games going in. Eric Hosmer of Kansas City hit a two-run home run to lead the American League.

The game was scoreless after the fourth inning.

The Rays return to the field Friday night against Baltimore.
