Today in Tribe History: July 13, 1954
At Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium, Senators hurler Dean Stone does not retire a batter, but gets the win in the American League’s 11 – 9 All-Star Game victory as he throws out Red Schoendienst trying to steal home in the 8th inning for the third out before retiring a batter. The AL breaks the National League’s 4-game winning streak. Larry Doby‘s pinch home run in the bottom of the 8th, followed by Nellie Fox‘s 2-run single, ends the highest-scoring All-Star Game in history. The two teams combine for 31 hits, with the AL amassing 17. The Indians’ Al Rosen has two homers and 5 RBIs.
