1978 All-Star Game
Once again the American League started off with solid hitting that gave them the lead early in the game. Rod Carew started the rally with a triple and George Brett followed with a double. Brett then scored on a Carlton Fisk sacrifice fly putting the American League up 3-0.
The American League was on a roll, but all that would change in the bottom of the third. Larry Bowa opened with a single. Then, Jim Palmer uncharacteristically walked Joe Morgan, George Foster and Greg Luzinski, forcing in a run. He found the plate against Steve Garvey, who tied it with a single.
The National League closed it out with four runs in the bottom of the eighth. Manager, Billy Martin brought in Goose Gossage, who ran into a nightmare inning. He gave up four runs on four hits for the American League's seventh straight loss. Garvey led off with a triple and scored on Gossage's wild pitch. Dave Concepcion walked and Dave Winfield followed with a single. Chet Lemon misplayed Winfield's ball, with Concepcion and Winfield moving up. Bob Boone then single up the middle, driving in two runs and later scored on a bloop hit by Davey Lopes.
