On July 8, 1958 — At Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium, in a contest that features no extra-base hits (13 singles), the American League edges the Senior Circuit, 4-3. Giants hurler Billy O’Dell pitched a perfect final three innings of the Silver Anniversary of the All-Star Game. The Yankees’ Gil McDougald pinch-hitting immersed in a serious slump delivers a single in the 6th to score Boston’s Frank Malzone with the deciding run. White Sox pitcher Early Wynn will be credited with the win 4-3 before 48,000 plus fans.
