Michael Young's two-run triple with two outs in the ninth inning turned a loss into a win for the American League. It was only the second time in All-Star Game history that a team won a game in which it was trailing and down to its final out.
Ted Williams' three-run homer off Claude Passeau with two outs in the bottom of the ninth capped a four-run rally and gave the AL a 7-5 win in the 1941 All-Star Game in Detroit.
