Game Recap

On a ninety-six degree evening at The Ballpark in Arlington, Texas, the National League made the most of just three hits (the lowest for a winning squad since 1952) in defeating the AL 3-2. The key: all three were home runs. After 5 2/3 innings it certainly didn't appear the NL would triumph. AL pitchers Randy Johnson, Kevin Appier, and Dennis Martinez combined to no-hit Senior Circuit batters. Not until Houston's Craig Biggio homered off Martinez did the National Leaguers collect their first hit.

That cut the AL's margin to 2-1, since Frank Thomas had delivered a monster two-run homer off John Smiley in the fourth. The ball landed in a left field luxury box and was eventually retrieved by Donald FehrÕs nine-year-old nephew.

Mike Piazza tied the game an inning later by homering off Kenny Rogers. In the eighth inning Jeff Conine pinch hit for DH Ron Gant. Facing Steve Ontiveros, who had also just entered the game, the 29-year-old Conine delivered a 410-foot homer to the lower deck in left. That was all the National League needed to win -- and it earned Conine All-Star MVP honors.

Pregame excitement centered about the figure of Dodgers rookie Hideo Nomo. Nomo, the first Japanese national to appear in an All-Star Game, was also the first rookie to start since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981. Much of his native land stopped work (it was 9 AM in Japan) to watch -- and cheer -- Nomo's performance as he allowed just one hit in two innings and struck out Kenny Lofton, Edgar Martinez, and Albert Belle.

1995: All-World Star

Nomo pitches well, allowing just one hit in two innings and striking outthree batters in a hard fought, 3-2 NL win.
