1984: Smokin'!

One the 50th anniversary of Carl Hubbell's five consecutive All-StarGame strikeouts, Los Angeles' Fernando Valenzuela and Dwight Gooden of the Mets combine to go Hubbell one strikeout better at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. In the top of the fourth, Valenzuela sets down three Hall of Fame hitters: Dave Winfield, Reggie Jackson, and George Brett. Then, aninning later, Gooden, who at 19 is the youngest player in All-Star Game history takes care of the next three American League batters: Lance Parrish, Chet Lemon, and Alvin Davis.
