Rookie Johnny Vander Meer, coming off his back-to-back no-hitters only a month before, threw three scoreless innings to pace the National League to its second All-Star Game victory. He was complemented by Bill Lee and Mace Brown, as the trio scattered seven hits. The error-prone American League didn't help its cause, either.
1938: Lou's Last
Cincinnati's Crosley Field hosted the sixth Midsummer Classic, and Reds phenom Johnny Vander Meer (fresh off his back-to-back no hitters) took the hill as the starter. He got the win as the Nationals took advantage of four AL errors to notch their second All-Star Game win by a 4-1 margin. The game also marked the last All-Star Game appearance for the great Lou Gehrig. Joe DiMaggio drove in the only run for the American League, but also gave a run to the NL with a bizarre throwing error in the seventh that allowed the batter, Brooklyn's Leo Durocher, to come all the way around to score.
