The first three and a half innings were scoreless with four hits between both teams. Johnny Mize hit a home run off of Spec Shea to deep right field in the bottom of the fourth inning to put the National League ahead 1–0. In the top of the sixth, Luke Appling scored from third base as Joe DiMaggio hit into a 6–4–3 double play to again tie the game.[2]

Stan Spence, pinch hitting for Shea, singled to right-center field in the top of the seventh inning, scoring Bobby Doerr from third base to give the American League the lead. Doerr had made it to third after pitcher Johnny Sain failed a pickoff attempt to second baseman Eddie Stanky.[2]

The NL's tying and winning runs in the form of Phil Cavarretta and Phil Masi (pinch running for Johnny Mize) were on third and first bases respectively in the bottom of the eighth inning, with Enos Slaughter at bat. Slaughter grounded out to shortstop Joe Boudreau, and pitcher Joe Page got out of the inning with the AL still on top, 2–1.[2]

Warren Spahn and the National League squad held off any more offense by the AL in the final inning, again giving them a chance to win it in their half of the ninth. Whitey Kurowski grounded out to Bobby Doerr at second and Pee Wee Reese walked to put the tying run on first. Eddie Stanky grounded out to Doerr also, preventing Reese from advancing. Schoolboy Rowe came to bat, pinch hitting for the pitcher Spahn. Rowe flew out to right fielder Tommy Henrich to give the American League a 2–1 victory.[2][3]
