All-star Countdown 19

June 24, 1993

July 13, 1993 Oriole Park at Camden Yards

The 1934 All-Star Game is know for one thing. New York Giants pitcher Carl Hubbell fanned five consecutive all-stars, but not just any all-stars. Hubbell struck out Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Jimmy Foxx in second inning and, in the third, began the frame by fanning Al Simmons and Joe Cronin. And while Hubbell left with a 4-0 lead after three innings, it was the American League, behind Cleveland hurler Mel Harder, that wound up a 9-7 winner. The AL scored six times in the fifth inning and Harder stole the show by allowing one hit, one walk and no runs over the last five innings.
