Hi Gary,
The Phillies look to be stuck at 3 games out. The Braves don't look like they are really to give up first place any time soon. Something has to give sooner or later or maybe not. Wondering how many games do the Phillies & Braves have against each other?

J.Q. - they still have 7 games head-to-head.  3 in Milwaukee Aug. 24-26 and a big 4 game series the next to last weekend in Philly (Sept. 24 - 27).  That last series could decide everything if both teams keep playing well.

Hi Gary,
Well you couldn't ask for a better way to settle it then with 7 more games against each other. You would think the Phillies would have the edge with 4 at home. I think if the standings remain the same that Philadelphia would have to take 4 or 5 games to have a chance to overtake them. But they can't forget to continue to take care of business first or someone else could just sneak up on both of them. It's going to get real interesting very soon even more than it has been already. Good luck the rest of the way.

The Braves certainly have the bats, but I wouldn't have picked them with that pitching staff. I'm still hoping for the Reds to get hot and surprise everyone.

Elvio pays immediate dividends for Yankees

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Tuesday, August 11th, 1964

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – Norm Siebern had a career day against Boston.  He singled 4 times and homered while driving in 5 runs for Baltimore and scoring 4 times.  Charley Lau hit a grand slam and the Orioles piled up 12 runs against Earl Wilson and company. Milt Pappas easily won his 18th game in the process, best in the majors.

 

Yankee Stadium, New York – Playing without Mickey Mantle, the Yankees scrambled for runs and, coupled with good pitching, managed to sweep a double header from visiting Chicago. In the opener, Clete Boyer homered and Roger Maris keyed a 3-run 5th inning as the Yankees built up a 4-2 lead for Jim Bouton. Hal Reniff came on when Chicago threatened in the 8th and closed out the game for a 4-3 Yankee win. Stan Williams started the second game but after walking 5 in 2 innings, he was pulled. Pete Mikkelsen replaced Williams but gave up 2 runs and left in a 2-2 tie. Pete Ward drove home a run in the 7th off of Bill Stafford and that looked pretty good for Fred Talbot. But when the Yankees got runners at the corners in the 8th, Hoyt Wilhelm could not stop Tom Tresh from hitting a sacrifice fly to tie the game.  Then in the bottom of the 9th, with runners at 2nd and 3rd and 2 outs, pinch hitter Elvio Jimenez singled off of Wilhelm and the Yankees had their sweep.  Steve Hamilton pitched the 9th and got the win,

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – One of the key moves for Detroit has been picking up Dave Wickersham from Kansas City in the off-season. Wickersham won his 15th by holding Minnesota to a Rich Rollins solo homerun.  That was just enough as Norm Cash singled home a pair in the 4th off of Camilo Pascual. Wickersham turned that into a 2-1 win and knocked Minnesota all the way to 6th place.

 

Municipal Stadium, Kansas City – Washington came to town and scored early against Aurelio Monteagudo as pitcher Bennie Daniels ripped a 3-run homerun and Dick Phillips cleaned the bases with a 3-run double. But Daniels could not hold that lead as the A’s caught up and sent the game into extra innings tied at 7-7. The home town fans were happy when Dick Green singled home Rocky Colavito in the 13th inning for an 8-7 win. Jose Santiago got the win in relief while Steve Ridzik took the loss.

 

Chavez Ravine, Los Angeles – Out on the west coast, Sam McDowell was not striking out many Angels but wasn’t walking many either as he outpitched Bo Belinsky; though he needed 9th inning help from Don McMahon. McDowell gave up 3 runs but only one was earned while rookies Chico Salmon and Bob Chance homered as did rejuvenated Max Alvis. That was plenty for McDowell and McMahon to win 5-3

Braves lose but so do Phillies. Jackson wins 19th.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Tuesday, August 11th, 1964

 

Busch Stadium, St. Louis – Ray Washburn was cruising along with a 4-1 lead over the Giants when he suddenly lost his composure in the 7th as the Giants had scored and had 2 men on. Cardinal manager Johnny Keane sent out knuckleballer Barney Schultz but his knuckle ball wasn’t knuckling. He served up a 3-run shot to Willie Mays. The Giants did not stop until they had scored 6 runs for a 7-4 lead. Orlando Cepeda later hit his 2nd homer of the game and the Giants got an easy 8-4 win. Jack Sanford who had replaced ineffective starter Bob Bolin got the win.

 

Crosley Field, Cincinnati – The Dodgers sent another kid at the Reds and lefty Pete Richert responded with 8 plus strong innings and only left in the 9th when the Reds started hitting him hard. The Dodgers had built an early 5-0 lead thanks to timely hits from Tommy Davis, who had 3 RBI’s, and Willie Davis, who had 3 hits. Ron Perranoski finished out to hold on to Richert’s win in a 5-3 victory.

 

County Stadium, Milwaukee – The Colts got a homerun from Carroll Hardy and surprised rookie Wade Blasingame with a 5-run second inning for a 7-0 lead. Don Nottebart started and finally got some support.  He held on until Rico Carty hit him for a homerun and the Braves scored 4 in the 6th to close the gap.  But Jim Owens came on to pitch 3 2/3 stellar innings to save the win for Nottebart in an 8-5 victory.

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago – Larry Jackson continued his outstanding season and became the majors’ first 19-game winner. He only faced 29 Phillies while holding them to 2 hits – both by Tony Gonzalez – as he outpitched Jim Bunning for a 6-1 win.  Ernie Banks hit a 2-run homerun off of Bunning in the first and that was really all Jackson needed though the Philly bullpen did not help in the 8th as Chicago scored 3 insurance runs.

 

Forbes Field, Pittsburgh – Roberto Clemente had 4 hits including a homerun and drove in 4 runs to lead Pittsburgh to an 8-2 lead going into the 9th.  But the Pirates played sloppily, committing 5 errors and letting Mets get back into the game in the 9th before Roy Face could come in and squelch the rally and win 8-5. Joe Gibbon started and got credit for the Pittsburgh win.

Elvio Jimenez to the rescue! 


The Pirates have their first half magic back. Oddsmakers must be having a tough time calling the NL...there's still plenty of the season left to go.

Hi Gary,
The Phillies are still losing to teams they should be beating. Starting to give up on the Cardinals making any type of come back in the race. And you have to hand it to those Braves they are hanging very tough but it will be interesting to see if they will be able to keep it up as the race starts to get down to the nitty gritty. Really enjoying this project especially the National League race. Good luck the rest of the way.

Mudcat outpitches Lolich

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Wednesday, August 12th, 1964

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – Bill Monbouquette tossed a 2-hitter against Baltimore – and lost! One of those hits was a solo homerun by Brooks Robinson and that was just enough to beat Boston as rookie Wally Bunker tossed a shutout to win his 13th by a score of 1-0.

 

Yankee Stadium, New York – Rookie Mel Stottlemyre got his first duty of his career and pitched well, going 8 full innings while giving up just 5 hits and 3 runs; 1 unearned. But he was losing 3-0 to John Buzhardt when he left for a pinch hitter. That worked as the Yankees stormed back to tie it at 3-3 before Hoyt Wilhelm could stop the comeback. Joe Pepitone almost ended the game in the 9th but his line drive down the tight field line fell just short and the game went into extra innings. Here, Chicago won when Cam Carreon doubled off of Hal Reniff with a man on 2nd for the lead.  Eddie Fisher held that lead for the 4-3 win in 11 innings.

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – If Mudcat Grant can continued to improve, the Twins could actually challenge for first.  And that looked more likely as Grant outpitched Mickey Lolich; both tossing 4 hitters.  But the difference was that Grant is a much better hitter than Lolich.  Grant doubled twice including driving in the Twins first run in the 7th that tied the game at 1-1.  Then in the bottom of the 8th, Bob Allison hit a solo homerun off of Lolich for the lead.  Grant tossed a 1-2-3 9th for the big 2-1 win over the leaders.

 

Municipal Stadium, Kansas City – Here in Kansas City, Rocky Colavito and Doc Edwards both homered as the A’s moved out in front of the Senators 4-1 and then 6-3. Orlando Pena benefitted from the offense and left as the Senators threatened. He was replaced by Bob Meyer, then Wes Stock, and finally Johnny Wyatt as the A’s barely hung on for a 7-6 win. For Washington, Willie Kirkland homered in his very first at bat with Washington and later added a double and single while scoring 3 times but it was not enough.

 

Chavez Ravine, Los Angeles – Young Luis Tiant made a mistake to Jim Fregosi that put him behind Dean Chance 2-1 in the 3rd. Though the Indians managed to score 3 runs against Chance, by then his Angel teammates had knocked young Tiant out of the game with a big 5-run 7th as Chance went on to win his 13th while Tiant lost for the first time in his big league career, 7-3. Fregosi led the way with 3 RBI’s for L.A.

Top 3 teams all win in N.L.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Wednesday, August 12th, 1964

 

Busch Stadium, St. Louis – Manager Johnny Keane skipped over slumping Ray Sadecki to give Gordie Richardson another start and the lefty responded with his 2nd win.  He was not sharp but managed to keep the Giants from scoring as he pitched into the 7th before Ron Taylor replaced him and finished out the game. By then, the Cardinals had taken advantage of some sloppy San Francisco fielding and a Julian Javier homerun to build up a 5-1 lead. They added to that to win 6-1.  Rookie Ron Herbel took the loss though he pitched better than it would seem but was let down by his defense.

 

Crosley Field, Cincinnati – There is real concern now in Los Angeles as Sandy Koufax once again could not maintain a lead and saw his record drop to 11-11.  He had a 5-1 lead over Cincinnati going into the bottom of the 7th when Don Pavletich had a pinch hit double followed by a Pete Rose double and the Reds had cut the gap to 5-4. But Walt Alston stuck with Koufax and in the 8th, Koufax botched a bunt attempt that put runners at 2nd and 3rd and then gave up a Johnny Edwards double. Howie Reed replaced Koufax but a Chico Ruiz single plated another run and the Reds led 7-5. That was the final as Sammy Ellis got the win in relief of Bob Purkey. Word out of L.A. is that Koufax will miss his next start to have his elbow looked at.

 

County Stadium, Milwaukee – Hank Fischer held the Colts to just 3 hits though they still managed one run.  But 3 Houston errors gave the Braves the opening they needed as Denis Menke drilled a homerun and had 3 RBI’s to lead Milwaukee to a 4-1 win.

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago – Chris Short struggled but still tossed a complete game to win his 15th as the Phillies got back on the winning track against Chicago.  Richie Allen homered in the first inning while Cookie Rojas had 4 hits to lead the Phillies. Short gave up 3 runs and struggled with his control as he walked 5 but struck out 7 and came away a winner, 8-3.

 

Forbes Field, Pittsburgh – Bob Friend tossed one of his best games of the year, holding the Mets to 5 hits and throwing goose eggs at them for another Pittsburgh win. Dennis Ribant got his first taste in the majors and did not pitch badly for New York allowing just 3 runs in 6 innings without walking anyone. But those were 3 runs too many against Friend. Bob Bailey kept up his hot bat with a 2-run single and Roberto Clemente added 2 more hits as he strives to overtake batting leader Ken Boyer.  The Pirates won 3-0 and kept pace with the Braves in the close pennant chase.

The current place the Yankees hold in the standings would suggest real-life manager Yogi Berra wasn't as lame as historians routinely make him out to be.

Excellent point Mike.  Just like I truly believe that Stengel was a genius (after failing miserably with his teams so many times), I have to start believing that Yogi was pretty good, too.

Remember, Yogi was Stengel's favorite.  He must have learned a lot over the years.

Baltimore finally throwing their hat into the ring

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Thursday, August 13th, 1964

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – Boston again got great pitching from Dave Morehead and got solo homeruns from Eddie Bressoud and Dick Stuart.  But all that did was tie the game at 2-2 against Robin Roberts and the Orioles. And so the game went in to extra innings where Dick Radatz replaced Morehead in the 10th. But Boog Powell smashed homerun leading off the bottom of the 11th and the game was over.  The Orioles had won 4-3 to move to within 5 ½ games of Detroit.

 

Yankee Stadium, New York – Al Downing pitched better but still had control problems and so when he walked a man in the 8th, Hal Reniff came on to try to hold a narrow 2-1 Yankee lead over Chicago. Reniff got a strikeout but then Gene Stephens had a pinch hit triple to tie the game. Pitcher Juan Pizarro then singled home Stephens for the lead. The White Sox added a run in the 9th against Bill Stafford and Pizarro needed no help from the bullpen for a 4-2 win.

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – Tony Oliva cemented his rookie of the year award with a 4 for 5 day including his 21st homerun.  Minnesota also got homers from Jimmie Hall, Don Mincher and Bernie Allen as they rolled over Detroit and Phil Regan 11-1. Jim Kaat went the distance for the Twins for an easy win.

Hi Gary,
Well look out here come the O's spreading their wings. And finally the Phillies move off of the 3 game behind mark where they have been stuck now for awhile. I'm really enjoying the NL race the knot is getting tighter at the top. I'll tell you what those Cubs have been giving the Fighting Phils a run for their money lately. Man you can't over look these weak teams or they will bite you in the butt. Let downs at this time of the season are killers to those teams in contention for the pennant. I think the O's will give the Tigers a run for their money if the pitching can stay on course and the bats don't fall a sleep at the wheel. Great job Gary.
J.Q.

J.Q. GO 2017 RED SOX !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Orioles stumble as Tigers win.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Friday, August 14th, 1964

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – New York invaded Baltimore and Whitey Ford got revenge for last week’s 1-0 loss as he held the Orioles to just 5 hits while Joe Pepitone was homering and the Yankees beat Steve Barber 3-1.

 

Fenway Park, Boston – Joe Horlen went the distance for Chicago, only allowing solo homeruns to Dick Stuart and Felix Mantilla. His White Sox pummeled Jack Lamabe and Arnold Early for 7 runs.  Pete Ward led the hit parade for Chicago with 2 doubles and a homerun while driving in 4.

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – Dick Stigman continued his turnaround and Harmon Killebrew blasted his 42nd homerun as the Twins stayed hot. Only Bob Chance’s solo homerun in the 9th marred Stigman’s day as he struck out 10 Indian batters, walked none, and only allowed 3 hits. This spoiled Lee Stange’s fine effort though Don McMahon relieved him in the 8th and allowed a Don Mincher 3-run homer to put the game out of reach for a 4-1 win.

 

Municipal Stadium, Kansas City – Kansas City’s Diego Segui had a bad first inning when Detroit racked up 3 quick runs on an Al Kaline homer. But Segui settled down with his A’s coming back to within 1 run before Dick McAuliffe homered for a 5-2 Tiger lead.  And again the A’s came roaring back before Fred Gladding could relieve Hank Aguirre and hang on for a 5-4 Detroit win.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – The Angels and Senators played a pair of games today and each ended in a shutout. In the opener, Washington’s ace, Claude Osteen, held the Angels to 5 hits while whitewashing them. His Senators bashed out 13 hits against Fred Newman and company led by Chuck Hinton’s 3 hits while 4 other batters had a pair of hits. This led to a 4-0 win.  But the nightcap saw Aubrey Gatewood pitch his best game of the year as he held the Senators to 6 hits and turned the tables by shutting them out. His Angels got a homerun from Joe Adcock and a 2-run shot from Willie Smith for all of their runs as the Angels split with a 3-0 win.

Middle teams all gain as top teams lose in N.L.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Friday, August 14th, 1964

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago – Pittsburgh came to Chicago for a double header, hoping to take two.  Willie Stargell belted 2 homeruns in the opener and drove in 4. Though Bob Veale was hit hard in the first inning for 3 runs, as so happens with good pitchers, you have to get to them early. Veale found his grove and Chicago never threatened again. Stargell’s heroics broke open the game and Veale and Pittsburgh won the opener 9-3.  But the second game was much closer as Tom Butters started for Pittsburgh and veteran Lew Burdette for Chicago.  Neither was around for the finale, however, as both were bounced out of the game. Billy Cowan homered for Chicago and Roberto Clemente for Pittsburgh as Chicago clung to a 5-4 lead. But in the 8th, Lindy McDaniel could not hold that lead and the Pirates tied it at 5-5. Though Al McBean had pitched well for Pittsburgh, he was pinch hit for in the top of the 9th and so Roy Face replaced him. Face got Billy Williams leading off the bottom of the 9th but never got past hot Ron Santo.  Santo belted a homerun on the first pitch he saw and the game was over.  The Cubs had won 6-5 to split.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – The Colts committed 4 errors to help the Reds score 3 runs and Jim O’Toole struck out 10 and went the distance as Cincinnati beat Houston 3-1. Chico Ruiz had 3 hits, scored a run, and drove in a run to lead the Reds.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – In the start of a big weekend in San Francisco, the Giants picked up a game on the leaders in a narrow, extra inning win. Denis Menke and Hank Aaron homered off of Billy O’Dell in the first but that was it against the veteran.  O’Dell left for a pinch hitter in the 5th as the Giants got an Orlando Cepeda homer and a Jay Alou RBI hit to tie it against Tony Cloninger. Chichi Olivo took over for Cloninger and got two quick outs in the 10th. Then Willie Mays got a tainted single and Cepeda followed with a single sending Mays to third. Jim Ray Hart singled and the game was over. The Giants won 3-2 in 10 innings with Bob Shaw getting the win in relief.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – The Phillies came to town hoping to continue their dominance of New York. In the Opener, Dennis Bennett struggled some but the offense came to the rescue as Philadelphia scored 6 runs in the 5th inning off of Al Jackson for a big 6-1 lead. John Boozer finished the last two innings and the Phillies took the opener 7-2. No one had a big game as the Phils got timely hitting and took advantage of 3 Met errors. But in the second game, Ray Culp was not pitching well as New York raked him for 5 runs in 4 innings for a 5-3 lead.  They extended that to 6-3 until the 8th.  Then New York errors took their toll, Clay Dalrymple homered, and the Phillies tied the game at 6-6. But there was one last error to be made and the Phillies committed it. Dalrymple went from hero to goat when he threw a bunt attempt into center field to put runners at 2nd and 3rd with no outs. After a walk to load the bases, Ed Roebuck could not find the plate and walked in the winning run.  The Mets had a split with Larry Bearnath getting the win and Roebuck taking the loss.

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – Don’t tell Don Drysdale that the Dodgers are out of the race.  The big right hander tossed his 8th shutout of the year – far, far ahead of anyone else in either league – and lowered his ERA to a league-leading 1.93 to win his 17th. In the process, he beat Bob Gibson who is having problems of his own. Once again, Gibson was hit hard as the Dodgers forged 3 runs in the first and another in the 2nd before Gibby finally settled down. By then it was way too late as Drysdale went on to a 6-0 win. John Roseboro’s bases-loaded double in the first scored all three runners and was the key blow in the contest.
