The National League set a pair of records in this game, with the largest margin of victory in an All-Star Game to date (six runs) and its highest-scoring single inning (a four-run fifth). This Midsummer Classic is perhaps best known for Pirates right-hander Rip Sewell, who delighted the crowd with his "eephus" pitch and tossed three scoreless innings.
