In the first of 11 All-Star appearances, Roger Clemens tossed three perfect innings for the American League squad. Lou Whitaker hit a two-run homer, and the AL pitching staff kept the National League off the board until the eighth in a 3-2 victory at the Houston Astrodome. Fernando Valenzuela turned in a memorable pitching performance in the NL's defeat, striking out five straight to match Carl Hubbell's All-Star Game record, set 52 years prior.
