The 1965 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 36th midseason exhibition between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and the National League (NL), the two leagues comprising Major League Baseball. The game was played on July 13, 1965, at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minnesota. The game resulted in a 6–5 victory for the NL.

Game summary

After only five batters, the National League owned a 3–0 lead. Willie Mays hit a leadoff home run to left field off Milt Pappas, followed by a Willie Stargell single and a two-run Joe Torre homer.

Stargell's two-run homer in the second inning off Mudcat Grant made it 5–0. The NL was coasting until a four-run fifth inning against Jim Maloney, which included a pair of two-run homers by Dick McAuliffe and Harmon Killebrew, tying the game at 5-all.

The winning run scored in the seventh versus Sam McDowell on a walk to Mays, single by Hank Aaron, ground out by Roberto Clemente and infield hit by Ron Santo. Saving the game for the NL with two innings of relief was Bob Gibson, who, with Tony Oliva in scoring position after a ninth-inning double, struck out Killebrew and Joe Pepitone to end the game.

Attendance was announced as 46,706.

NL Starter Juan Marichal was named the game's MVP.
