The American League put on quite a show, belting three two-run home runs in a 6-4 win to break an eight-game losing streak against the National League. Thanks in part to a windy night at Detroit's Tiger Stadium, six players hit a home run, which tied an All-Star Game record. Frank Robinson was named Most Valuable Player.
