Game Recap

After three hours and 17 minutes, 20 strikeouts and 23 hits, a solo home run by St. Louis slugger Stan Musial on the first pitch in the bottom frame of the 12th inning ended this marathon. Milwaukee's Gene Conley, who struck out the side in the 12th, was the winning pitcher, while Boston's Frank Sullivan got the loss.

1955: Stan The Man

In the greatest comeback in All-Star Game history, St. Louis' Stan Musial, who would go on to appear in an amazing 20 consecutive Midsummer Classics, homers in the bottom of the 12th inning off Frank Sullivan of the Red Sox to give the National League a thrilling 6-5 victory at Milwaukee County Stadium. All Detroit outfielder Al Kaline could do was watch Musial's ball sail into a crowd of excited fans.
