The NL started the game with two singles, then scored one run on a sacrifice fly by Stan Musial. The AL jumped ahead 3–1 in the bottom of the 2nd, on a pair of walks followed by a home run from Bobby Doerr. The AL added a run in the 3rd, on back-to-back doubles by Ken Keltner and Dick Wakefield, and another run in the bottom of the 5th, on an error by NL second baseman Billy Herman with runners on first and third with two outs; the AL was up 5–1. The NL later got two runs back from Vince DiMaggio; in the 7th he hit a triple and then scored on a sacrifice fly by Dixie Walker, and in the 9th he led off the inning with a home run. But the NL was unable to rally further, resulting in an AL 5–3 victory.
