Bill Freehan hit two three-run home runs in the third inning to lead the American League to a 19-2 victory over the National League in the fifth annual Old-timers baseball game Monday.

Freehan, Tom Tresh and Cokie Rojas each homered off Hoyt Wilhelm in the AL’s 14-run third inning. Freehan’s first homer made it 7-1 and his second of the inning, off Lindy McDaniel, increased the margin to 16-1.

The AL Stars sent 18 players to the plate in the inning. Eleven of them hit safely, three walked and one reached on an error.

Rocky Colavito’s second-inning homer erased a 1-0 NL lead and helped the AL Stars to their first victory since the initial game was played in 1982.
