In the fifth battle of stars in the annual "Mid-Summer Classic," the American League plated four runs in the first inning, exploded for five tallies in the sixth, and then staved off a late rally by the senior circuit to hold on to a 10-8 victory at Cleveland's Dunn Field. Indians skipper and center fielder Tris Speaker, filling in for an injured Ty Cobb, led the way with three hits, three runs batted in and two runs scored and was named the game's outstanding player.

The junior circuit has copped the last two contests to take a 3-2 lead in All-Star play. The Nationals will host next year's game at Pittsburgh's Forbes Field and it'll be interesting to see if Pirates president Barney Dreyfuss will be willing to add seats to his venue in an effort to increase attendance past the 25,000 that Forbes currently holds.

Highlights and outstanding players from this year's game include:

  • The aforementioned Tris Speaker, who joins the three-hit club, led by fallen teammate Ray Chapman, who was honored with an emotional tribute before the game.
  • George Sisler reaching base in all five of his trips to the plate, rapping out three hits, including two doubles, and drawing two walks.
  • Larry Gardner going 3 for 4 with a double and two RBIs.
  • Harry Heilmann going 2 for 3 with two walks and two runs scored.
  • Carl Mays allowing three hits and one unearned run in three innings to earn the win.
  • NL catcher Frank Bruggy poling out two hits, driving in three runs and throwing out Sisler on the AL's only steal attempt.
  • Ross Youngs and Jack Fournier reaching base three times each in a losing effort.
