In the year’s second All-Star Game, the American League snaps a five-game drought to beat the National League 9-4 at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Leon Wagner of the Los Angeles Angels wins the game’s MVP, going 3-for-4, with a home run and two RBI. It is the final time that there will be two All-Star Games in the same season, ending an experiment designed to raise more money for the retired player’s pension fund.
