Make it seven straight wins for the American League in the MLB All-Star Game.

Joey Gallo's solo homer in the seventh inning gave the AL a 4-1 lead before the junior circuit hung on for a 4-3 win over the National League in Cleveland.

The story for the American League was on the mound as nine hurlers each threw one inning and combined to allow just five hits while striking out 16.

Indians hurler and game MVP Shane Bieber gave the local fans a thrill by striking out the side in the fifth.

Liam Hendriks and Aroldis Chapman also fanned three in their one inning of work.

Former Indian Michael Brantley opened the scoring with an RBI double off loser Clayton Kershaw, scoring Astros teammate Alex Bregman.

Masahiro Tanaka worked a scoreless second to get the win.

The American League leads the overall series, 45-43-2.
