The American League didn't have to wait long to get its revenge. Less than a month after the first All-Star Game of the '59 season, the AL slugged its way to a 5-3 victory at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Yogi Berra, Rocky Colavito and Frank Malzone all went deep for the Junior Circuit, with Berra's homer putting the AL ahead for good in the top of the third.
