Game Recap

After spotting the National League a 2-0 lead in the first inning, the American League roared back. Led by Kirby Puckett's homer and double, the "Junior Circuit" scored three runs in both the fifth and sixth frames, while its pitchers held the National League in check.

1993: The Curious At-Bat

It was one of the most memorable at-bats in the history of the Midsummer Classic. John Kruk, the member of the Phillies least likely to finish the game in a clean uniform, stepped into the batter's box. Despite his pear-shaped body and excess weight, Kruk is a smart batsmen. At the first-ever All-Star Game to be held at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Kruk faced American League starter Randy Johnson, the 6-foot 10-inch fireballer from Seattle. The pitches sailed over and around Kruk! The junior circuit continued their win streak, 9-3 over the National League.
