The only hits for the AL were a one-out solo homer by Rocky Colavito of the Tigers in the first inning, a leadoff single by Brooks Robinson of the Orioles in the fifth, a one-out infield single by Al Kaline of the Tigers in the sixth, and a leadoff single by Kaline in the ninth.

The only hits for the NL were a leadoff single by Maury Wills of the Dodgers in the fourth inning, a one-out single by Willie Mays of the Giants in the fourth, a leadoff double by Bill White of the Cardinals in the fifth, and back-to-back two-out infield singles by Eddie Kasko of the Reds and Bill White of the Cards in the sixth. The NL used 19 players, with all eight clubs represented. The AL used 14 players, with every club represented except for the Angels, Athletics, and Senators. Two Reds played in the game. RHP Bob Purkey started and pitched two innings, allowing one run on one hit with 2 K's and 2 BB's. SS Eddie Kasko entered the game as a defensive replacement for Dodgers SS Maury Wills in the fourth inning and was 1-for-1 before being lifted for pinch-hitter Ernie Banks of the Cubs in the eighth. The managers for the game were Danny Murtaugh of the Pirates for the NL, and Paul Richards of the Orioles for the AL.

I was at this game. Last year I told the story about how I went to Game 4 of the 1990 NLCS in Pittsburgh, and how my college roommate at OU was the catalyst for making that possible. Karl was a telecommunications major from the Chicago area (Naperville, IL), and since he also worked part-time as a DJ at Power 105 WXTQ in Athens, he hadn't been home to see his Cubs since their NL East Champion season in 1989. So to show my appreciation for what he did to make my 1990 playoff experience possible, I got blue seats for this game so that he could see the Cubs. Our other roommate Jon (a Yankees fan) also went, as he did for the Pittsburgh game. He was impressed with the fact that vendors bring beer to you in the blue seats, as opposed to the upper deck at Three Rivers Stadium where he had to go to the concession stand and get it himself.
