St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina gave the National League new life in the sixth inning at Tuesday’s All-Star Game, hitting a solo home run to tie the game.

The 34-year-old catcher, who was playing in his eighth All-Star Game, became the oldest catcher to homer in an All-Star Game with his opposite-field shot off Minnesota Twins right-hander Ervin Santana.

Molina is also the oldest player to homer in an All-Star Game since Barry Bonds in 2002.
