Alek Manoah had himself a night at the All-Star Game in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
With the American League All-Stars trailing the National League 2-0 in the bottom of the second inning, manager Dusty Baker brought the Toronto Blue Jays ace into the game after Shane McClanahan struggled in the first.
But there was an interesting twist with Manoah’s performance.
Somehow, some way, while he was pitching, he was able to be on the mic with the FOX Sports broadcast of the game.
The Blue Jays ace stole the show with his ability to pitch and be on the mic last night, as he worked a scoreless bottom of the second.

Manoah Steals The Show
How does one stay focused on the game while being on the mic you ask?
Well, we may not have the answer, unfortunately.
But what Manoah did there was quite impressive.
He provided the announcers and fans with some laughs and managed to do it while he was pitching.
Just imagine how hard that must be, to stay locked on while you’re also listening to the announcers call the game.
Manoah also proved that he can still be a jokester while he’s locked in on the game.
Granted, it is the All-Star Game, and it doesn’t mean anything, but still.
Manoah is a funny guy who likes to keep things loose, and he did a great job of that last night during his outing.
It would be even more impressive if the All-Star Game still determined homefield advantage in the World Series.
But Manoah was ultimately able to multi-task during last night’s game, and he stole the show as he kept things loose while remaining stingy on the mound.
