Babe Ruth hits the first home run in All-Star Game history. The 32-year-old Scherzer, a two-time Cy Young Award victor and five-time All-Star, has a major league-best 2.10 ERA in 128 1/3 innings over 18 starts this season.

"When you get to face the best from the other side and you get the start, the adrenalin starts flowing and you want to throw everything as hard as you can", Scherzer said.
