Game summary[edit]

The National Leaguers drew first blood in the first off Dave Stieb when Steve Garvey singled to right and went to second on an error by Reggie Jackson. Garvey then scored on another error by catcher Lance Parrish after Dale Murphy singled. In the second, George Brett tied it with a solo homer off Charlie Lea, and game MVP Gary Carter quickly gave the NL the lead back with a solo shot off Dave Stieb.

The game would remain 2-1, NL, for five more innings with two noteworthy pitching performances by National League pitchers along the way. Fernando Valenzuela struck out Dave Winfield, Reggie Jackson, and George Brett in the fourth, and 19-year-old Dwight Gooden fanned Lance Parrish, Chet Lemon, and Alvin Davis in the fifth.

Dale Murphy added a solo homer in the eighth off Willie Hernández for the final 3-1 margin. Goose Gossage got the save. The game set a nine-inning All-Star Game record for most strikeouts (21)--which would be broken in 1999.

Huey Lewis and the News sang the United States National Anthem prior to the game, with the Presidio of San Francisco color guard presenting the colors and airplanes from Travis Air Force Base flying over Candlestick Park at the Anthem's conclusion. The ceremonial first pitch ceremony featured Carl Hubbell.
