Jean Segura, the American League winner in the Final Vote, delivered a tiebreaking three-run home run in the eighth inning of the American League's 8-6 win over the National League in the All-Star Game on Tuesday night.
The ball wasn't flying out of Nationals Park quite as frequently as it did during Bryce Harper's heroic hometown homer binge a night earlier, but it was flying all the same in a dinger-driven, record-breaking 89th All-Star Game presented by Mastercard on Tuesday night.
After the four-day All-Star break, the Mariners will resume play Friday at 7:10 p.m. PT against the White Sox at Safeco Field. Wade LeBlanc (5-1, 3.63 ERA) is expected to be on the mound to kick off the second half, followed by Felix Hernandez on Saturday and Marco Gonzales on Sunday.

Doris Ellis, the wife of Mariners chairman emeritus John Ellis and a member of the ownership group that helped keep the club in Seattle in 1992, died earlier this week at age 89.
Both young players and veterans will represent the Mariners in Washington, D.C., for Tuesday's All-Star Game presented by Mastercard.
The Mariners moved to bolster their catching depth this week, signing former Phillies backstop Cameron Rupp to a Minor League deal and assigning him to Triple-A Tacoma.
The 20th edition of the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game had no shortage of big moments, with the two sides combining for eight home runs -- doubling the previous Futures Game record -- as Team USA outslugged the World, 10-6, on All-Star Sunday at Nationals Park. Here is a recap of each player's performance, with a breakdown of each club's representatives.
Rookie reliever Matt Festa, who made his Major League debut for the Mariners on Saturday, has been optioned back to Double-A Arkansas so he can continue pitching as Seattle began the four-day All-Star break on Monday.
The Mariners aren't rolling into the All-Star break at full steam, but for a club projected by most to be a .500 team coming out of Spring Training, it's hard to be upset with a 58-38 record, one which puts them in prime position to fight for a playoff berth in the second half.
A Mariners team that made a living on one-run wins in the first half, saw that script flipped Sunday in a 4-3 loss to the Rockies and now heads to the All-Star break looking to regroup from a four-game losing streak.
Any doubts as to whether the Mariners are starting to miss Robinson Cano, not to mention Nelson Cruz and Mike Zunino, continued to be erased Saturday as Seattle struggled again in a 4-1 loss to the Rockies at Coors Field. Right-hander Jon Gray quieted the Mariners on four hits and one run over 7 1/3 innings.
Having spent his first three seasons in the Majors with the Rockies, Christian Bergman is no stranger to Coors Field. But familiarity doesn't mean comfort when it comes to pitching in Coors, as the Mariners' spot starter was reminded again in a 10-7 loss in Friday's Interleague series opener.
Mariners left-hander James Paxton was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday with inflammation in his lower back, as the club made a flurry of roster moves to bolster its pitching heading into a three-game series against the Rockies at Coors Field to close out the first half.
The Mariners reached into their prospect ranks to bolster their bullpen on Saturday, promoting Double-A Arkansas closer Matt Festa for his first shot in the Major Leagues.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Friday.
Losing a game to the rival Angels is one thing. Losing James Paxton to injury while losing to the Angels is a whole 'nuther matter and the Mariners were dealt both blows on Thursday in an 11-2 runaway in the series finale at Angel Stadium.
Christian Bergman will be on the mound Friday when the Mariners open a three-game set with the Rockies at Coors Field, but designated hitter Nelson Cruz will be on the bench and limited to pinch-hitting duties as Seattle deals with the first of three remaining Interleague road series on its schedule.
With less than three weeks until the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, things are heating up.
After waiting 18 years to get their first Final Vote candidate, Mariners fans rallied to the cause as Seattle shortstop Jean Segura won the competition for the final roster spot on the American League All-Star team on Wednesday.
Marco Gonzales came into the season with major question marks and five Major League career wins attached to his name. But the 26-year-old southpaw became Seattle's first 10-game winner this season on Wednesday night with another seven-inning gem as the Mariners topped the Angels, 3-0. Gonzales has been one of the big reasons the Mariners are approaching the All-Star break as a growing Cinderella story in the American League West, as his latest win put Seattle at 58-35, just three games back of the defending World Series-champion Astros, with the fourth-best record in MLB.

Beat reporter Greg Johns answers Mariners fans' questions about the non-waiver Trade Deadline.
With the All-Star break approaching next week, the Mariners placed Felix Hernandez on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday to give the veteran right-hander time to heal a stiff lower back that has hindered his past two starts.
It all started so promisingly, with a three-run Mitch Haniger homer before the Mariners recorded their first out. But Seattle's hot start on a warm Southern California night quickly became moot as the Angels rallied for a 9-3 victory despite losing standout starter Garrett Richards to a right forearm issue in the third inning.
Ryon Healy broke out of an 0-for-13 slump by driving in five runs, including a three-run homer that helped the Mariners beat the Rockies, 6-4, on Sunday. Edwin Diaz wrapped up the win by notching his Major League-leading 35th save. Charlie Blackmon, Carlos Gonzalez and Trevor Story each homered for the Rockies, whose five-game winning streak came to an end.
For the second game in a row, the Mariners bats were not able to support a starter who put up a subpar outing. Seattle got its only run of the game on a Jean Segura solo shot in the fifth inning. The blast evened the score at one apiece, but would not be enough to back James Paxton in a 5-1 loss on Saturday afternoon.
Robinson Cano knows his reputation has been damaged, his Mariners team has performed well without him and there is no guarantee even that he'll be the everyday second baseman when he returns on Aug. 14 from his 80-game suspension for the final six weeks of the regular season.
Looking to add a right-handed bat to their outfield mix, the Mariners recalled John Andreoli from Triple-A Tacoma prior to Saturday afternoon's game against the Rockies and southpaw Kyle Freeland. Right-handed reliever Nick Rumbelow was optioned to Tacoma to open a spot on the 25-man roster for Andreoli, who is in the lineup in left field for the 1:10 p.m. PT start.
