Emmanuel Clase

Cleveland, Ohio— Emmanuel Clase’s All-Star Game debut for the Guardians couldn’t have gone much better than it did Tuesday night in Los Angeles. The first time throwing in the Midsummer Classic, Clase was almost flawless.

Clase earned the save in a 3-2 American League victory by striking out the side on 10 pitches, all cutters, with an average velocity of 99.5 mph.

Kyle Schwarber (Philadelphia), Garrett Cooper (Miami), and Jake Cronenworth (San Diego) were all struck out by the 24-year-old right-hander. Nothing short of a first-pitch ball to Cronenworth after six straight strikes prevented Clase from hurling a spotless inning with three strikeouts on nine pitches.

Following his selection as an All-Star, Clase stated he wouldn’t care who he faced in the game if given the opportunity to throw. Clase replied, “Anyone that steps into the box because they’re all All-Stars. None of them are safe from my wrath.

For Clase, it was an excellent performance that was like Shane Bieber’s 2019 All-Star MVP performance when a 24-year-old Bieber fanned three of the NL’s best players in succession. It was Clase’s prediction that he would enjoy the All-Star experience, but that he would also have an impression.

As for Clase, he remarked, “I’m looking forward to getting on the mound and striking them out because that’s my game.”

With Tuesday’s game, the Guardians’ players created a work of art with their play, culminating in a goal from Clase. During the fourth inning, Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run home run, which was scored by José Ramirez, who had two hits. First-inning defensive heroics were led by a leaping stab and behind-the-back flip from Andrés Giménez to Tim Anderson.
