With a breakout nine-run offensive outburst, the American League achieved its first victory in a span of six All-Star games (1-4-1). Pete Runnels, Leon Wagner and Rocky Colavito all belted home runs for the AL. The National League, however, would begin a run of dominance after this game. The next time the AL would taste victory in the All-Star Game would be 1971.
