I can see McAuliffe with that totally open stance turning on the pitch as I type...a memorable batting stance. We used to copy stances as kids, and, actually, I liked McAuliffe's and hit pretty good using it. I really hit well using Al Kaline's, though.

As I recall, so did he, ha! I copied his stance too. It is still a classic hitters stance, perfect, almost.

Senators in first again after big 9th inning rally!

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Wednesday, April 15th, 1964

 

Only one game was played today and the Senators thrilled their home fans with a big come-from-behind win.  Jim Fregosi had homered off of Washington starter Bennie Daniels in the first and Joe Adcock powered two balls into the seats as the Angels took a 3-0 lead into the bottom of the 9th.  New acquisition Barry Latman was pitching well until Chuck Hinton led off the Washington 9th with a homerun.  When Jim King followed one out later with a single, manager Bill Rigney called for Bob Lee.  Lee was expected to be the fireman for Los Angeles this season. His role may be in jeopardy however. Don Lock singled and pinch hitter Dick Phillips walked to load the bases for rookie John Kennedy.  Kennedy ripped a single tying the game. Don Zimmer was intentionally walked to set up the force at home.  Don Blasingame struck out and it looked like Lee might get out of it until Eddie Brinkman singled and Washington had a 4-3 win. Reliever Ron Kline got the win after coming in to pitch the 9th for Daniels.

Someone has to score against L.A., sometime, I suppose.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Wednesday, April 15th, 1964

 

Someone has to score against the Dodgers sometime.  But not today as Don Drysdale picked up where Koufax left off yesterday and shut out the Cardinals.  Drysdale scattered 6 hits in the process, even withstanding a no-out triple from Doug Clemons.  The Dodger offense was not much better against Ernie Broglio.  They only managed 7 hits and the only reason this game is still not going into the night is that Broglio uncorked a wild pitch with Willie Davis on third and 2 outs in the 4th for the game’s only run and a 1-0 Los Angeles victory.

 

Jim Bunning made his first appearance in the National League and evidently likes it over here.  He held the Mets to 5 hits and no runs in a nice complete game shutout.  Tracy Stallard started for New York and also pitched well. A Bobby Wine 2-out double plated a run in the 2nd for Philadelphia and Johnny Callison homered in the 3rd for 2 more runs as the Phillies went on from there to a 3-0 win.

 

The Braves turned the tables on the Giants as they got to Jack Sanford for 5 runs in the first 5 innings.  That easily overcame a solo homerun from Tom Haller for a 5-1 win.  Bob Sadowski went the distance in shutting down San Francisco.

 

The Pirates are going to hate to see the Cubs leave Pittsburgh as they easily crushed Chicago, pounding out 14 hits and scoring 11 times.  Today they were led by Roberto Clemente, Bob Bailey, and Jim Pagliaroni who all had three hits and 2 RBI’s, with Pags getting a homerun.  That was plenty for Joe Gibbon who was not necessarily sharp but went the distance for an 11-4 win.

Hi Gary,
Nice to see the Dodgers & Cardinals hooking up man Big D was locked in. But what a tough way to lose a game like this on a wild pitch. Can't wait to see how this replay turns out for the Cardinals & Phillies.

Replays: it's always interesting to learn something new about players you thought you knew--Fred Norman, for example. I knew he began with the Kansas City A's, but was completely unaware of his brief tenure with the Cubs...but there he is, taking the loss against the Pirates.

Norman is awful in advanced C&D too. In 1964, they still had expanded rosters for the first month (28 players). That gave teams a chance to look at some kids - hence the only reason Norman played. He will not make it past May 13th. Even though I know the cards are awful, I try to give these kids a quick look since the real managers did not yet know how awful they are.

Yankees finally get to play

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Thursday, April 16th, 1964

 

Yankee Stadium, New York - The defending AL champion Yankees finally got a game played as they hosted Boston.  The Red Sox got to a shaky Whitey Ford in the first inning on back-to-back doubles by Frank Malzone and Dick Stuart for a quick 2-0 lead.  Ford settled down after that outburst and Boston starter Bill Monbouquette looked good until the 3rd inning. The Yankees then bashed out 6 hits to score 5 runs and drive Monbo from the game.  After serving up 7 hits in the first three innings, Ford only allowed 3 more the rest of the game, the Yankees added another run late and went on to win 6-2.

 

Comiskey Park, Chicago - Baltimore’s Dave McNally and Chicago’s Ray Herbert engaged in a pitching duel for the first 4 innings.  Jackie Brandt broke the spell in the 5th with a 2-run homerun and Johnny Orsino homered in the 5th and Baltimore led 3-0.  McNally was tossing a no-hitter going into the 6th when ancient Minnie Minoso cracked a pinch hit homerun for Chicago.  Chicago threatened more in the 7th, scoring a run and leaving men at 2nd and 3rd as Dick Hall relieved.  Hall struck out pinch hitter Pete Ward and finished out the game for a 3-2 Baltimore victory and a save.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. - Washington scored early again and looked like they might start the season 3-0 until the Minnesota bats woke up in the 4th. Earl Battey cracked a grand slam and the Twins suddenly led 4-2.  Though Washington made it 4-3 against a shaky Jim Kaat, Harmon Killebrew homered and Battey drove in another run in the 5th for an 8-3 lead.  That quickly went to 11-3 and the spring reserves flooded the field.  Chuck Hinton and Don Leppert later homered to drive Kaat from the game but he still notched his first win in the 11-6 Minnesota victory.

Dodgers finally allow a run but win anyway.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Thursday, April 16th, 1964

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles - Well at least we know now that the Dodgers are going to allow a run here and there. Bob Miller got the spot start in place of an ailing Johnny Podres and the Reds actually scored a run in the 3rd inning.  That was enough for Jim O’Toole until the 6th when Los Angeles broke out for 4 runs; Maury Wills getting a big 2-run hit.  Wally Moon replaced an injured Frank Howard and added a pair of hits and an RBI.  When Miller tired in the 7th, Ron Perranoski came on to keep the game in hand, withstanding a 9th inning, pinch hit homerun from Deron Johnson for a 5-3 Dodger win.

 

Colt Stadium, Houston - Jim Owens started for Houston and fell behind 2-0 to the Braves on a first-inning, Eddie Mathews homerun but then pitched 8 strong innings. The Colts tied it in the 6th and when Braves starter Denny Lemaster loaded the bases with no outs in the 8th, young Phil Niekro was called out of the bullpen to bail him out.  That did not work so well as Niekro proceeded to give up 3 hits and a walk before being pulled in favor of Dick Kelley, who himself walked home 2 more runs.  The Colts scored 6 times in the 8th and waltzed to an 8-2 win.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco - Julian Javier cracked a pair of homeruns and Curt Flood had 3 hits and a pair of RBI’s to lead the Cardinals to their first win.  Curt Simmons went the distance for St. Louis while striking out 8 in the 7-2 Cardinal victory over San Francisco.  The Giants committed 4 errors in the process, canceling out homeruns from Willie Mays and rookie Jim Ray Hart.

Mantle looks healthy. Twins off to a good start.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Friday, April 17th, 1964

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore - New York traveled to Baltimore for an early matchup of contenders.  Mickey Mantle soon took control of the game as he doubled home a run in the 1st and hit a 3-run homerun off of Steve Barber in the 5th for a 4-0 lead.  With iffy weather conditions and a big lead, Mantle was replaced by Hector Lopez while Jim Bouton was tossing a shutout.  Suddenly in the 7th, the Bulldog got into trouble as Hal Reniff came on to hold the Orioles to 3 runs and now a slim 4-3 lead.  Baltimore then got to Reniff as the Yankees committed 2 errors behind him, scoring a pair of runs and taking a 5-4 lead.  Now manager Yogi Berra wished he had not pulled Mantle as the Yankees needed a 9th inning rally to avoid a loss.  But it was Lopez coming through with a 2-out, 2-run single in the 9th to put New York up 6-5.  Steve Hamilton came on to try to hold that lead but Luis Aparicio sneaked a fly ball over the wall for a game-tying homerun in the bottom of the 9th to send it into extra innings.  Bill Stafford and Stu Miller then dueled for 2 innings each as the game went into the 13th.  Here it was Lopez again as he tripled home Roger Maris and then scored on an Ellie Howard sacrifice fly.  Stan Williams had come on in the 12th and held that lead for an 8-6 win, picking up the win in relief.  Chuck Estrada took the loss.  It should be noted that the Yankees committed 6 errors in the contest, but somehow still managed to win.

 

Fenway Park, Boston - Homeruns by catcher J.C. Martin and Floyd Robinson had helped to put Joel Horlen and the White Sox up 3-1 heading into the bottom of the 8th in Boston.  When Horlen got into trouble, Hoyt Wilhelm came on to bail him out and try to hang on to a slender 3-2 lead.  Wilhelm got the first out in the bottom of the 9th before catcher Bob Tillman singled for Boston.  That brought up pinch hitter Felix Mantilla who ripped a Wilhelm knuckleball over the Green Monster for a game winning homerun.  Dick Radatz had entered the game for Boston in the 8th and the Monster had tied the White Sox up in knots for 2 innings, striking out 4 and allowing a pair of pop ups.  He got a well-deserved win in the 4-3 comeback win.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland - Tito Francona homered while Max Alvis drove in 3 runs as Cleveland scored 5 early runs against Diego Segui.  Jack Kralick pitched a 6 plus innings and Don McMahon finished up for an 8-2 win over Kansas City.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit - Aging Joe Adcock is showing the form that gave him a tie for the NL homerun record back in 1956 as he hit his 3rd homerun in 3 games and also singled in a run as the Angels bested the Tigers 4-2 in Detroit.  Rookie Bobby Knoop also homered as the Angels scored in 4 different innings off of veteran Frank Lary while Dean Chance was holding Detroit to 4 hits in the win.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. - Once again, the surprising Senators got off to an early lead, this time against Minnesota.  But starter Don Stenhouse got into trouble and Steve Ridzik could not bail him out as the Twins responded with 6 runs in the 6th for an 8-4 lead. Washington fought back furiously in the 9th, scoring 3 against Bill Dailey but they fell just short as the Twins stayed perfect with an 8-7 win.  Lee Stange started for Minnesota and got the win with help from Dailey.

Still 4 undefeated teams in the NL - including Houston !

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Friday, April 17th, 1964

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles - But are the Dodgers going to lose a game?  Tommy Davis homered in the first for a quick lead though young Pete Richert got the start for L.A. and had lots of trouble with the Reds. Trailing 4-3, he was pulled in favor of Phil Ortega and then Jim Brewer.  But Reds starter Joey Jay also had troubles and left after the Dodgers had tied the game in the 7th on Wally Moon’s pinch hit single.  Veteran Al Worthington replaced Jay but soon got into trouble in the 8th as John Roseboro singled home Willie Davis for a 5-4 Dodger lead. Ron Perranoski came on and though he got into trouble, he pitched out of it for Los Angles’ 4th win.

 

Colt Stadium, Houston - And don’t look now but the surprising Houston Colt 45’s are undefeated, getting great pitching.  Today it was veteran Hal Brown holding the Braves to just one run over 7 innings and rookie Claude Raymond finished up with 2 shutout innings for a narrow 2-1 win. Both runs came in the 7th when Al Spangler hit a pinch hit RBI single and Eddie Kasko followed suit as Raymond then took care of business for the victory.

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago - Another surprise are the Phillies who are also undefeated.  Art Mahaffey struggled against the Cubs, especially Ernie Banks who went 4 for 4 with 4 RBI’s, but 2 costly errors led to 4 unearned runs against Cub starter Dick Ellsworth and Chicago never recovered.  Ryne Duren came on to pitch the 8th and 9th, striking out 4 and preserving a narrow 7-5 Philly win.

 

Shea Stadium, New York - Maybe less of a surprise are the undefeated Pirates who are getting both strong pitching and good offense.  Today it was the Mets who suffered at the hands of Roberto Clemente and Bill Mazeroski in a not-so-friendly debut for Shea Stadium.  Bob Friend scattered 8 hits and held the Mets to just a Jim Hickman solo homerun in a 5-1 Pirate win.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco - Many picked the Giants to win it all this year and the main reason was the offense. Today the Giants showed why as Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, and Tom Haller all hit their second homeruns of the year and cruised to an 8-1 win over the Cardinals.  Billy O’Dell started and pitched like a kid as he struck out 8 and only made a mistake to Julian Javier who punched out his 3rd homerun of the year for St. Louis.

Tresh puts Yanks in first.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Saturday, April 18th, 1964

 

Fenway Park, Boston - Gary Peters was not sharp again as he gave up a 3-run homerun to rookie Tony Conigliaro and a solo shot to pitcher Earl Wilson as Boston took an early 4-0 lead over Chicago.  But Chicago scored 3 in the 4th and Pete Ward ripped a grand slam in the 5th as the White Sox went on top 8-4.  Peters got into more trouble in the 6th as Dick Stuart doubled home a pair and scored on a Frank Malzone hit and the score was a narrow 8-7.  Peters left after that but Chicago added insurance in the 7th and went on to a 10-7 win over Boston for their first win of the year.  Eddie Fisher finished up for a save.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit - Mickey Lolich held the Angels to 5 hits and just a Dick Simpson solo homerun while his Tigers were getting ahead of Ken McBride 3-1 thanks to an error.  Another error led to 2 more unearned Tiger runs as Lolich and Detroit won going away at 5-1.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. - Homeruns were flying out of D.C. Stadium today.  Bobby Allison connected twice and Bernie Allen once as it looked like Minnesota would stroll to a win with a 6-3 lead.  Then the Senator homerun machine cranked up as Chuck Hinton, Moose Skowron, and John Kennedy all hit one and Don Lock hit a pair as Washington crushed the Twins bullpen for 9 runs on top of the 9 allowed by starter Dick Stigman.  The final was an ugly 18-7 with Tom Cheney picking up a gift win (he allowed 7 runs in 5 innings but won!).  Jim Hannan did a nice job in relief however with 4 innings of shutout ball.

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore - It did not take long for the defending AL champion Yankees to move into first place.  Tom Tresh had a career day as he hit a 1st inning grand slam, singled home a run in the 5th, and homered again in the 9th for 7 RBI’s in an 11-8 win over the Orioles.  Al Downing pitched horribly for New York (7 runs in 7 innings) but still got the win thanks to Tresh and the rest of the Yankee offense. Roger Maris also tripled, homered and added 3 RBI’s to the tally.

Now there are 3 undefeated NL teams.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Saturday, April 18th, 1964

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles - Sandy Koufax proved to be only human after all; but he still won.  The Dodgers had scored in each of the first three innings to give Koufax a 3-0 lead over Cincinnati.  But Frank Robinson broke out of his slump by catching a Koufax fastball and driving it over the wall for a 2-run homerun to cut the lead to 3-2.  Willie Davis homered off of Jim Maloney to make it 4-2 and then some awful fielding behind Koufax led to 2 more runs and the Reds had tied it at 4-4.  Koufax had blown a lead! But he suddenly got into a groove and the strikeouts began to pile up. The game went into the 10th and 11th and still Koufax stayed on.  His K’s reached 10 but he was pinch hit for in the bottom of the 11th by Wally Moon. Moon singled and Maury Wills then beat out a bunt.  Jim Gilliam moved the runners and Willie Davis was intentionally walked to load the bases.  Sammy Ellis got Tommy Davis on strikes but Ron Fairly singled and the Dodgers had won 5-4.  Koufax was the pitcher of record so he picked up the 11 inning complete game win.

 

Colt Stadium, Houston - The Colt 45’s had been winning on strong pitching.  Once again they got a great performance from Ken Johnson but Tony Cloninger went him one better as the Braves nipped the Colt 45’s 2-1.  Johnson might have won if he not had to face Hank Aaron.  Hammering Hank hit a pair of homeruns for both Milwaukee runs.

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago - The Phillies jumped on Chicago starter Bob Buhl for 6 runs over 4 innings and a 6-1 lead. Tony Taylor had 3 hits and scored twice while Johnny Callison had a pair of hits and 3 RBI’s.  But then Philly starter Ray Culp gave up a 2-run homerun to Ernie Banks and a 3-run, pinch hit homerun to Leo Burke and the Cubs had tied the game 6-6.  In the top of the 7th, Roy Sievers pinch hit for Culp, driving in a run with a single.  Lefty Chris Short came on and pitched great, shutting out the Cubs over the last three innings to hang on to the 7-6 Philly win.

 

Shea Stadium, New York - Two bad pitches.  That’s all it took to sink the Mets.  Larry Bearnath took a shutout and a slim 1-0 lead into the 7th against the Pirates.  But Bearnath got into trouble and left after a run had scored and the bases were loaded with one out.  Lefty Steve Dillon came out to face Bill Virdon but the veteran cranked Dillon’s pitch into the stands for a grand slam and a 5-1 Pittsburgh lead.  New York did not give up as they rallied against Roy Face until Al McBean could slow them down but they cut the lead to 5-3.  Then in the top of the 9th, Jay Hook made a bad pitch to Roberto Clemente and 3 more runs scored and it was no contest as the Pirates stayed undefeated with an 8-3 win.  Don Schwall pitched 6 strong innings for Pittsburgh before leaving for a pinch hitter in the big 5-run inning.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco - Once you give Bob Gibson a lead, you are in deep trouble.  Willie McCovey had homered and the Giants had a 2-1 lead on Gibson and the Cardinals after 6 innings.  Then Bob Bolin began to fade as Johnny Lewis drove in a run and Dal Maxvill singled home a pair for a 4-2 St. Louis lead.  Then Gibson really got tough as no Giant reached base the next three innings and the Cardinals won 4-2.  Gibson went the distance while striking out 7 for his first win of the year.

The Phils just refuse to refuse to win without drama...I think Dallas Green had that 1980 quote I recently used in his pocket since '64..."we haven't done anything easy all season, why start now."  But...4-0 is 4-0!

Detroit sweeps Minnesota for first place

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Sunday, April 19th, 1964

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit - The Tigers swept a double header from Minnesota with apparent ease.  In the opener, Hank Aguirre scattered 8 hits while holding the Twins to just one run in a complete game effort. The big inning for Detroit was the 5th when Dick McAuliffe tripled in a run and Don Demeter followed with a homerun for a 4-run inning that knocked out Twins’ starter Camilo Pascual and gave Detroit a 6-1 lead. Aguirre took it from there for a 7-1 final score and the win.  In the second game, rookie Tony Oliva homered in the first for an early Twins’ lead that evaporated when George Thomas homered in the 2nd off of Jim Roland for a 2-2 tie.  Bill Freehan then homered to put Detroit up and Dave Wickersham never let that lead go as he went the distance while allowing just those 2 first-inning runs. The final was a 5-2 victory and a sweep for Detroit.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. - Rocky Colavito had a clutch, 2-out bases loaded single in the 8th that put the A’s and Orlando Pena up 4-0 over Washington. Though Don Lock’s homer cut it to 4-1, the A’s tacked on 2 more against an ineffective Howie Koplitz for a 6-1 lead going into the bottom of the 9th. When Moose Skowron and Fred Valentine hit back-to-back homeruns for the Senators, Johnny Wyatt replaced Pena to finish out the game for K.C.’s first win of the year, 6-4.

 

Fenway Park, Boston - John Buzhardt and rookie Ed Connolly dueled to a 1-1 tie after 8 innings as Chicago invaded Fenway Park.  Boston brought out the Monster, Dick Radatz, to pitch the 9th but a costly error (one of three on the day) led to the second unearned Chicago run and Hoyt Wilhelm came out to hold that narrow lead as Chicago won 2-1.

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – Big Boog Powell hit a pair of homeruns and drove in three runs to help power the Orioles to a 6-3 win over the Yankees.  Despite facing a left-hander in Bud Daley, Powell clobbered both of his homeruns to help put the Orioles out in front 4-0 after 4 innings, ending Daley’s day.  Milt Pappas started for Baltimore and held a shutout until Ellie Howard’s 2-run double in the 6th that got New York back to 4-3.  But Baltimore chipped away at the Yankee bullpen, scoring 2 more runs for the win.

And now 2 undefeated NL teams

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Sunday, April 19th, 1964

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles - So counting the sweep in last year’s World Series, the Dodgers have now won 10 straight. It was Don Drysdale again today as Dandy Don tossed a 4-hitter at Milwaukee while overcoming a pair of Dodger errors to win 5-1.  Los Angeles bunched their hits in a 3-run 6th inning that put them on top for good.  Frank Howard later homered off of Billy Hoeft for some insurance in the win that puts them at 6-0 for the season.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco - And the Reds, thought to be contenders, are now 0-5 after getting stomped by San Francisco.  The Giants scored 4 runs in the first inning off of Joe Nuxhall, led by rookie Jim Ray Hart’s 3-run homerun.  Hart later added a sacrifice fly while pitcher Juan Marichal added 3 hits of his own in the 6-3 win.

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago - The Cubs finally got a “W” beside their name and sent Philadelphia down to its first defeat.  Larry Jackson went the distance for the Bruins but still the game was tied going into the bottom of the 9th.  There, young Lou Brock got a hanging curve from reliever Jack Baldschun and knocked it over the wall for a game-winning homerun and a 4-3 victory.

 

Shea Stadium, New York - Jim Pagliaroni had a homerun, 2 triples, a single and 6 RBI’s for the undefeated Pirates as they crushed the Mets 16-3 at the new home of the Mets.  Pittsburgh lashed out 20 hits in the process including a 6-run first inning that knocked out starter Al Jackson.  Bob Veale struck out 11 and went the distance for his 2nd win and Pittsburgh’s 5th.

 

Colt Stadium, Houston - The Cardinals got back to the .500 mark as Ray Sadecki shook off some early problems to outpitch Don Nottebart and the Colt 45’s.  Doug Clemons homered off of Nottebart for a pair of runs and later singled home another in the 4-2 St. Louis triumph.

Wrigley Field, Chicago - The Cubs finally got a “W” beside their name and sent Philadelphia down to its first defeat.  Larry Jackson went the distance for the Bruins but still the game was tied going into the bottom of the 9th.  There, young Lou Brock got a hanging curve from reliever Jack Baldschun and knocked it over the wall for a game-winning homerun and a 4-3 victory.

There it is...finally gave one away.  I forget Brock had some HR pop in his bat in the 60's...didn't waste any time picking up his two for the Cubbies did he? 

And there's that Billy Cowan character again...seems like he's popping up all over the Village lately, like Flo in those Progressive commercials!
