Game Recap

With Juan Marichal facing the minimum of nine batters over the first three innings, the National League breezed to an early 5-0 lead. But the American League stormed back to tie things up on a pair of two-run shots by Dick McAuliffe and Harmon Killebrew. The National League broke the deadlock in the seventh when Willie Mays scored on a Ron Santo infield hit.

1965: Heavy Artillery

Minnesota hosted it's first All-Star Game in 1965 and both teams brought along the heavy artillery for this one. Five homers were hit in this game, including a mammoth shot by hometown favorite Harmon Killebrew. Other homers were hit by Willie Mays of the Giants, Joe Torre of the Braves and Willie Stargell of the Bucs for the NL, while the AL countered with Killebrew and Detroit's Dick McAuliffe. But in the end, it was the NL's better pitching which proved the difference. Juan Marichal of the Giants took MVP honors with his three shutout innings, while Cardinal fireballer Bob Gibson closed out the NL's 6-5 win with an impressive strikeout of the Yankees' Joe Pepitone with the tying run on second base.
