Game Recap

The American League celebrated the All-Star Game's 50th Anniversary-and a victory-at the site of the first game, Comiskey Park. An 11-game losing streak was snapped courtesy of a seven-run outburst in the third.

1983: The 50-Year Itch

As hard as it may be to believe, not one grand slam was hit in the first half-century of All-Star Game play. But on the 50th anniversary of the Midsummer Classic, in the place where it all started in 1933-Comiskey Park-California's Fred Lynn ends the drought. With the bases loaded in the third, Lynn rips one into the stands for his fourth All-Star Game home run. In that inning, the American League sets All-Star Game records for runs (7) and hits (6) in one inning and goes on to blast the NL, 13-3.
