He pitched a scoreless fifth inning, setting the National League down in order.The American League could have used The Miz in the sixth inning as it entered with a 14-3 lead. The National League put seven runs on the board in the final frame to make things interesting.Washington Wizards point guard John Wall tripled during the National League's rally, which gave the fans in the nation's capital something to cheer about.However, the NL ran out of gas to give the AL the victory.Entering the event, plenty of fans were eager to see Bill Nye step to the plate. The host ofBill Nye the Science Guy was blunt before the game about his limitations on the diamond, per's Alyson Footer:Alyson Footer alysonfooterBill Nye, the Science Guy: quot;I cant hit, I cant throw, I cant run. I cant hit for power. I miss everything. Im going to try to hit it to the other field. Im going to try to hit it to second base.quot; Also, somewhat related: Nye is very much against banning the shift.True to his word Myles Garrett Jersey Elite , Nye struck out in his first at-bat:Dan Skoff weatherdanThe math of a BillNye strikeout. 馃槒That might be the ONLY strikeout Ive ever seen in the Legends amp;amp; Celebrity Softball Tournament. 馃う鈥嶁檪锔?EiDjyCAkQDVince Cellini Vince_CelliniFlipped over to #AllStarGame see Bill Nye strike out swinging in celebrity softball.

Celebrity softball is a legend killer.Next time, Nye might be able to give Dawson some pointers on route efficiency and how to read the trajectory of batted balls.The Cleveland Indians will host the 2019 MLB All-Star Game, so it seems a foregone conclusion The Miz will be back to defend his MVP. The Parma, Ohio, native has never shied away from his Cleveland fandom, and he'll receive a hero's welcome at Progressive Field.
