Corey Seager and Kenley Jansen: a tale of two first time All-Stars.

SAN DIEGO– The two Dodgers on the National League team fared very differently in the first All-Star Game appearance for each.

Corey Seager struck out in his only at-bat against New York Yankees right-hander Dellin Betances. He swung at only one of the five pitches he saw, a 2-2 fastball clocked at 100 mph, and missed.

The rookie shortstop also committed an error in the field, bobbling a Mark Trumbo ground ball in the seventh inning.
Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen faced one batter in the eighth inning, Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters, and struck him out on three pitches.
