The American League defeated the National League 5-2 in the 91st annual All-Star Game that took place at Coors Field in Colorado last (Tuesday) night.

It was the 8th straight year the American Leaguers were victorious.

St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado went 0-2, while Redbirds reliever Alex Reyes who made his first All-Star Game appearance pitched 2 and 1/3 scoreless innings and struck out a batter.

Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez hit seventh in the stacked AL lineup and struck out both times he came to the plate.

In his 2nd All-Star Game appearance Royals slugger Whit Merrifield pinch hit in the top of the sixth inning and struck out.

In the top of the eighth, Merrifield grounded into a forceout against Cardinals closer Alex Reyes.

The Missouri Tigers Football team received a commitment from defensive tackle Jalen Marshall yesterday (Tuesday).

Marshall announced on Instagram he was choosing Mizzou over the likes of Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Indiana.

He becomes the 12th overall commitment for the Tigers in the 2022 recruiting class and the second defensive lineman to give his verbal pledge joining St. Charles, MO native Marquis Gracial.

Former Mizzou Women’s Basketball player Jordan Chavis has signed a professional contact in Germany with the Eintracht Braunschweig Lionpride, the team announced on Tuesday.

Chavis started all 30 games she appeared in during her senior season at Mizzou and had a career-year averaging 7.3 points and 2.6 rebounds per game while shooting 42.4 percent from three. Chavis also posted career-highs in assists (65) and steals (31).  

Her 42.4 percent mark from three ranks seventh all-time in a single-season in program history, while her 53 threes on the season rank ninth by a Mizzou senior. She finished her career ranked fifth in program history in three-pointers made (149) and eighth in three-point field goal percentage (.363).
