On July 14, 1970, At Riverfront Stadium Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds scores the winning run of the All Star Game after crashing into Ray Fosse of the Cleveland Indians. Rose’s run, which comes on a single by Jim Hickman, gives the National League a 5-4 win in 12 innings. The collision leaves Fosse with an injured shoulder. Fosse, who never had the ball, hurts his right shoulder and is taken to the hospital; the Cleveland Indians catcher entertained “Charlie Hustle” as a dinner guest the previous night. Fosse, a budding star, will never return to form after the injury.

The game is scoreless until the 6th, with the National League limited to three hits in the first eight innings. In the 9th, the NL tees off on Catfish Hunter, driving in three runs to tie. Dick Dietz hits a leadoff home run in the inning. Claude Osteen pitches the 10th for the win.
