A's catcher Stephen Vogt made his second straight All-Star Game this season, only he didn't see the field Tuesday night at San Diego's Petco Park.
The American League beat the National League, 4-2, to secure home-field advantage in the World Series. AL manager Ned Yost only used two catchers the whole game.
Royals catcher Salvador Perez and Matt Wieters of the Orioles were the only two to get in the squat for the AL.
"Obviously you want to get in the game," Vogt told MLB.com's Jane Lee. "That being said, it was really cool for Wieters and Britton to have the ninth together."
Orioles closer Zach Britton recorded the save for the AL, throwing to his battery mate Wieters.
Despite not getting any playing time, Vogt cherished his experienced as an All-Star yet again, telling MLB.com, "I want to come back every year."
Vogt was the lone A's representative at the All-Star Game this year. Through 72 games played, he is hitting .277/.320/.442 with seven home runs.
The A's are 38-51 at the All-Star break and sit 12 games back of the Rangers in the AL West.
