Hi Gary,
Oh the Phillies have fallen again to a team they should be beating. A split is better then losing two but they should have swept these two from the Mets. Like I have said before losing to these types of teams is what will sicken you when the season ends and you haven't won the pennant. It's a must you have to beat these weak teams or you can forget it. Lucky that they still have time to catch the Braves but if they keep losing these types of games they better hope that the Braves lose to.

Detroit stumbles against K.C. - Chicago just 6 games down in loss column; NY and Minn only 7 games down.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Saturday, August 15th, 1964

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – Joe Pepitone is heating up for New York as he homered again to give Jim Bouton a 3-0 lead over Baltimore and Milt Pappas after just the first inning.  But Pappas settled down as his Birds chipped away at the lead. Boog Powell ripped a homer in the 2nd that cut the lead to 3-2.  Powell then drove in a run in the 6th on a fielder’s choice to tie the game. Then in the 8th, Powell sliced a single off of reliever Steve Hamilton to drive in Luis Aparicio from 2nd for a 4-3 lead. Just when it looked like Pappas would get a win, Pepitone singled with no outs in the 9th. Stu Miller came on to get one out but Ellie Howard singled Pepitone to third. Pinch hitter Pedro Gonzalez singled to tie the game. Phil Linz followed with a pinch hit double and the Yankees now led. That brought Phil Mikkelsen in to try to hold the lead. Mikkelsen immediately walked Johnny Orsino as Bob Saverine pinch ran. Jerry Adair bunted him over and Charlie Lau’s pinch hit double tied the game. In the 10th with Harvey Haddix now pitching, Roger Maris laced a 1-out single. Pepitone followed with his 3rd hit of the game.  Hector Lopez then singled and the Yankees led again. Rollie Sheldon got into trouble in the bottom of the 10th but Hal Reniff bailed him out for a 6-5 Yankee win.  

 

Fenway Park, Boston – Chicago managed to eke out a run in the 4th against Bob Heffner and the Red Sox. Bob Tillman soloed off of Ray Herbert in the 5th to tie the game. And when the game entered the 14th inning, it was still 1-1 and both starters had long departed. Don Buford doubled leading off the 14th, came home on a Pete Ward single, and Eddie Fisher made that hold up after Boston threatened against Hoyt Wilhelm.  Wilhelm got the win with 4 2/3 innings of work while Jay Ritchie took the loss with 3 innings of work.

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – Minnesota stayed hot as Tony Oliva and Zoilo Versalles both homered off of Jack Kralick in a 5-run 5th inning. Those 5 runs were enough for Camilo Pascual to maintain the lead until loading the bases with 2 outs in the 9th.  Al Worthington came on to get the final out and the Twins downed the Indians 5-2.

 

Municipal Stadium, Kansas City – Dave Wickersham had his shortest outing of the year as Bill Bryan hit a 3-run shot, Kansas City batted around, and the A’s took a 5-0 lead over Detroit after just 1 inning. Bryan homered again in the 3rd for a 7-1 lead before Ed Rakow settled in for 5 innings and Larry Sherry finished up.  That gave Detroit bats time to catch up against Jose Santiago. Gates Brown, Norm Cash and Dick McAuliffe all homered off of Santiago to make it 7-3. Then with a man on, Johnny Wyatt replaced Santiago, walked a man, and gave up a 3-run shot to Jerry Lumpe and the score was 7-6. It looked like Detroit might pull out another win. But Wyatt stiffened and pitched 3 innings without allowing any more damage and Santiago ran his record to 7-0 with the 7-6 win.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – Ken McBride served up a 2-run homerun to Dick Phillips as the Senators took an early 2-0 lead over the Angels. Alan Koch was pitching well until the 6th when Jim Fregosi homered and was followed by a Felix Torres 2-run homer for the lead.  Los Angeles added an insurance run and McBride went on for a complete game, 4-2 win.

Jackson wins 20th. Phillies just 1 game back.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Saturday, August 15th, 1964

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago – Ouch.  Red hot Ron Santo crashed a homerun in the first inning as the Cubs batted around to score 4 runs against Vern Law and the Pirates.  It did not stop there as Santo had another homer and a double while Andre Rodgers, Billy Cowan, and Billy Williams also added homeruns and Chicago rolled to 11 runs.  Not only that, Chicago ace Larry Jackson was gunning for his 20th win and got that easily as he shut out the Pirates for a commanding 11-0 win.  Jackson is the first pitcher in the majors to 20 wins this year and we still have a month and a half to go.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – Joe Nuxhall withstood 2 homers and a double from Bob Aspromonte and prevailed 4-3 over the Colts.  Frank Robinson did much of the damage for the Reds as he also had 3 hits and a pair of RBI’s to add to his league leading total of 93. Bob Bruce was hit hard and took the loss despite a great relief effort from Jim Owens to keep the game close.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – Once again the Giants knocked off the leading Braves in the 2nd of a 4 game series.  Juan Marichal got the win but manager Bill Rigney has learned his lesson and did not stick with Marichal.  When Denis Menke hit his 2nd homerun of the game to cut the Giants lead to 4-3, the call immediately went to Jim Duffalo. Duffalo went 1 1/3 inning and Billy Pierce finished up to hold that 4-3 lead and pick up a game. Rookie Hal Lanier had a nice game with a pair of hits and 2 critical RBI’s.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – Once again Jim Bunning did not get much support but he held the Mets to just 3 hits and a tainted run and still managed to win 2-1. The only Philly runs came in the 2nd when Frank Thomas drove home Wes Covington and then scored on a Clay Dalrymple hit but that was enough for Bunning. The win coupled with the Milwaukee loss puts the Phillies just one game out of first.

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – And again Ron Perranoski failed to hold a lead in the 9th.  The Dodgers had just shocked reliever Barney Schultz with a pair of runs to break open a 4-4 tie to take a 6-4 lead over the Cardinals.  Perranoski came on to relieve and though Curt Flood had singled, it was sandwiched between 2 outs.  Down to the last out, Ken Boyer singled to put runners at the corners. Bill White then singled to make it 6-5 and still there were runners at the corners. Then Mike Shannon singled, the game was tied, and once again there were runners at the corners. Bob Miller replaced Perranoski and immediately threw a pitch that crossed up catcher John Roseboro. The ball scampered away from Roseboro and White scored the go-ahead run before Miller could finally get the last out. Now with a 7-6 lead, Schultz had no trouble with a 1-2-3 9th and a win.

Pepi was a very streaky hitter, but when he was hot he usually had that uppercut left handed swing tailored for the short porch and could do some real damage.

Larry Jackson's card is a thing of beauty.

We've Got a Chance With Shantz!  Perhaps not the headline of the Philadelphia Inquirer as the 38-year-old hometown boy returns to Shibe to don the pinstripes after being kicked around the league the past few years. Just hope Mauch doesn't overuse the aging southpaw down the stretch...nah, he'd never do that.

If nothing else - it will give Ed Roebuck a break.  I (well, Gene Mauch) am using Roebuck a lot since Jack Baldschun is more like Jack Bull****.  They need someone else in that bullpen.

Hi Gary,
Well it looks as if the Phillies are making their move finally after stuck in 2nd place. Picking up Bobby Shantz should help them down the stretch. I'm still very surprised to see the Red Birds struggling along this season I expected to see them near the top in the NL race. However the race is still tight and I think it will remain that way down to the bitter end. I think we are about to see a seesaw battle between the top teams in the NL. As for the AL it would take a complete down hill slide by the Tigers for them not to win the pennant. I enjoy checking in and seeing how this is unfolding. Good luck the rest of the way Gary.

Twins and Orioles trying to hang with Detroit

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Sunday, August 16th, 1964

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – Though a lot of folks are blaming Yogi Berra for the Yankees performance to date, much of it might be aimed at the trainer. Their hottest hitter of late, Joe Pepitone, went down early and will miss much of next week to join Mickey Mantle as part of the walking wounded. With that loss, the Yankee offense pretty much shut down.  Hector Lopez got a break when Jackie Brandt misplayed a fly into a run-scoring double and that was all that New York could do against the kid Frank Bertaina.  But another kid, Mel Stottlemyre, was pitching for New York. He was pitching even better and carried a 3-hit shutout into the 9th. Brooks Robinson led off with a solid single.  Stottlemyre threw a sinker that didn’t sink, Boog Powell turned on it, and the Orioles had a sudden 2-1 win.  Harvey Haddix got the win in relief.  

 

Fenway Park, Boston – Gary Peters served up a 2-run homerun to Tony Conigliaro as Boston came back from a 6-3 deficit to tie the game in the 8th.  That was it for Peters as Eddie Fisher took his place. Dick Radatz replaced Pete Charton, who replaced Bill Monbouquette, and the game went into the 12th. Fisher was still pitching when Dick Stuart ended the game with a solo shot.  Jay Ritchie had earlier replaced Radatz and got the win.

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Cleveland – Oh my.  The red hot Twins were down to their last out. Cleveland had gotten homeruns from Fred Whitfield and even pitcher Pedro Ramos in a 6-run 3rd inning that drove out Mudcat Grant.  They even added 3 more for a 9-5 lead after the Twins closed the gap on a Harmon Killebrew homerun. Tommy John had replaced Ramos a long time ago but served up a Zoilo Versalles homerun after one out in the bottom of the 9th and that cut the lead to 9-7. Rich Rollins then singled and Don McMahon was called on.  McMahon got the dangerous Tony Oliva before Killebrew hit a sharp grounder to Billy Moran at second.  Moran bobbled the ball and all the runners were safe.  That brought up hot hitting Jimmie Hall and you can guess the ending.  Hall ripped into a McMahon fastball for a no-doubt-about-it homerun and a 10-9 win.  Al Worthington who had pitched the 9th got the win.

 

Municipal Stadium, Kansas City – The Tigers got a homerun from George Thomas in a 4-run first.  And that 4-run lead lasted less than half an inning as the A’s stormed back against Denny McLain for 3 runs. But the Tigers had John O’Donoghue’s number today an added 2 more runs for a 6-3 lead. McLain went 6 innings and left with a 6-4 lead but clearly was not sharp.  Terry Fox replaced him in the 7th and was horrible. A walk and 3 hits later the game was tied and Larry Sherry had to bail him out to keep from falling behind.  Then the bullpens finally got their acts together and the game went into the top of the 13th still tied. Ted Bowsfield was pitching his 3rd inning of relief when Al Kaline and Don Demeter struck for back-to-back solo shots.  Fred Gladding pitched his 5th inning of relief and got the 8-6 win.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – Dean Chance was burnt by 3 errors behind him and fell behind the Senators 4-1. He was pinch hit for in the 7th and the Angels roared back for 4 runs and a 5-4 lead.  Chance was still the pitcher of record and could get a win if the bullpen could hold. But Washington manager Gil Hodges sent up veteran Roy Sievers as a pinch hitter with one task: tie the game with a homer.  And that’s just what he did as he teed off against Don Lee. Now the game was tied but the Senators were not finished. Don Blasingame singled and Willie Kirkland doubled him home and Washington had the lead. Ron Kline came on to pitch 2 shutout innings to save the game for Jim Hannan.  Hannan had made one pitch in the 7th but was the pitcher of record and so got the win.

24 innings!!!! New strat record as San Francisco and Milwaukee grind it out for a very long day (2nd game of a double header!)

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Sunday, August 16th, 1964

 

Wrigley Field, Wrigley Field – Ron Santo hit another 3-run shot as the Cubs turned in a 6-run 5th inning to run away with the opener against Pittsburgh 8-3. Dick Ellsworth pitched well to pick up a complete game win.  But the second game saw Sterling Slaughter once again fall behind early for Chicago and never recover. Willie Stargell and Bob Bailey homered for an early 4-1 lead.  Don Schwall pitched well but when Billy Williams crunched his second homerun of the game, Al McBean came on.  There were a few heart stopping moments for Pirates fans but Pittsburgh held on for an 8-6 win and a split.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – John Tsitouris tossed a 4-hitter while holding the Colts to just 1 run on an Al Spangler solo homerun. His Reds scored a pair on a Marty Keough triple and later on a Pete Rose single and those 3 runs were all Tsitouris needed for a 3-1 Cincinnati win.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – Little did the Braves know when they came to Candlestick Park this morning that they would be here for over 30 innings. A double header was scheduled and the first was great pitching duel between the Giants’ Bob Hendley and veteran Warren Spahn. The game was tied at 1-1 heading into the 9th. But when Hank Aaron and Joe Torre led off the 9th with hits, Billy Pierce relieved.  Unfortunately for Hendley, Pierce grooved a pitch to Gene Oliver who crushed it for a 3-run homerun. Though Matty Alou hit a solo shot off of reliever Bob Tiefenauer, the Braves won 4-2. Then the fun began. Bob Shaw started game 2 and was wild as a March hare. After giving up 3 runs in the first two innings including walking in a pair of runs, he was pulled. Then the Giants got busy against Frank Lary. Willie Mays and Jim Hart homered in one inning while Tom Haller and Willie McCovery homered in another inning as the Giants piled up a 9-5 lead. But Jim Duffalo and Jim Perry could not hold that lead as the Braves tied it at 9-9 after 8 innings. Tiefenauer and Perry were in for the 8th and 9th. Bob Bolin replaced Perry for the 10th. In the 11th the Braves loaded the bases with 2 outs but Felipe Alou struck out. Ron Herbel replaced Bolin. In the bottom of the 12th, the Giants loaded the bases with 2 outs. Wade Blasingame came on and struck out Willie McCovey. In the 14th, Herbel loaded the bases with one out but Joe Torre grounded into a double play. In the 15th, a Giant error put runners at 1st and 2nd but Herbel pitched out of it. Likewise the Giants got 2 base runners in the bottom of the 15th but could not score. Billy O’Dell replaced Herbel in the top of the 16th. Blasingame then loaded the bases in the bottom of the 16th with just one out but Hank Fischer got a force at home and another McCovey strikeout. In the bottom of the 17th the Giants got runners at the corners with 2 outs but Hal Lanier struck out. In the top of the 18th the Braves got runners at the corners but Frank Bolling grounded out. In the top of the 19th, the Braves again got two runners on board but Torre grounded out. In the bottom of the 19th, the Giants got runners at 2nd and 3rd with only one out. But Chuck Hiller grounded into a fielder choice at home and Jay Alou popped out. By now, the Giants had two pitchers left.  Juan Marichal who started yesterday and Bob Hendley who started game one today. So Marichal came in to pitch the top of the 20th.  In the bottom of the 22nd and still facing Hank Fischer, Jay Alou doubled with one out but the runner at first was held at third. Lanier bounced into a fielder’s choice at home and Mays fouled out. Denny Lemaster finally relieved Fischer in the bottom of the 23rd inning. In the top of the 24th, Lee Maye led off with a single off of Marichal. An exhausted Marichal then gave up a single to Denis Menke as Maye beat the throw to third. Aaron was intentionally walked to get the force at home. Torre finally came through with a solid single to score a pair. Hendley then reluctantly replaced Marichal and got 3 quick outs. Lemaster stayed on to pitch the bottom of the 24th, pitched a 1-2-3 inning, and the game was mercifully over.  The Braves had won in 24 innings, 11-9 and oh by the way swept the double header that started many long hours ago.  This is the longest game in my SOM history. The Giants used every single player on their roster (24 men). Either team could have won much earlier but just could not get the big hit. Luckily for both teams, tomorrow is an off day but both teams will still have a pitching rotation in shambles.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – Ruben Amaro singled home a pair of runs in the second inning against Tracy Stallard. An error led to a 3rd run and that was all that Philadelphia could muster against Stallard and the Mets. But Chris Short was pitching for Philly and he was chalking up goose eggs and strikeouts. Short gave up 2 hits leading off the 9th so Ed Roebuck replaced him.  Though a run scored, Roebuck contained the damage and the Phillies won 3-1.

 

Dodger Stadium. Los Angeles – Ray Sadecki pitched better than he has lately in the opener against the Dodgers. He pitched into the 7th with a 6-1 lead before Bobby Humphreys replaced him.  In the 8th, the game suddenly got close when Ron Fairly hit a homer to cut the lead to 6-4. Barney Schultz replaced Humphreys and pitched perfectly the rest of the way to preserve the lead. The second game featured two rookie left handers in the forms of Pete Richert for the Dodgers and Mike Cuellar for the Cardinals. Both pitched quite well with Richert going 7 1/3 innings and only allowing 2 runs; neither earned. Cuellar likewise went 7 1/3 innings while allowing 2 runs and struck out 10. And so the game was tied at 2-2 and went on into the 15th inning. With St. Louis running out of pitchers and the Dodgers getting runners at 2nd and 3rd, Johnny Keane called for Bob Gibson.  But he walked big Frank Howard.  Then on a come backer to the mound, Gibson lost the handle for an error.  The winning run scored and the Dodgers had a split with the 3-2 victory.

After 24 innings yesterday, today produces a PERFECT GAME. WHen it rains it pours, I guess.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Monday, August 17th, 1964

 

Comiskey Park, Chicago – History was made today at Comiskey Park as righty John Buzhardt not only tossed a no-hitter at the Yankees, but also tossed a perfect game!  There was never even so much as a loud out by the crippled Yankees.  Al Downing absorbed another tough loss as he only made one mistake while tossing a 5-hitter. Moose Skowron hit a homerun deep into the seats in left in the second inning for the game’s only run. Buzhardt only used 101 pitches while striking out 7 in tossing his masterpiece. [This was my 3rd perfect game.  Buzhardt now joins Frank Hiller (1951 Cubs) and Ernie Johnson (1954 Braves) in my pantheon of el perfectos].

Braves gain while sitting idle. Mauch over-manages his way to a loss.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Monday, August 17th, 1964

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – Philly manager Gene Mauch is kicking himself after today’s game. “We picked up Bobby Shantz to use him out of the bullpen and I passed up a golden chance to do just that”.  Shantz had replaced starter Rick Wise and maintained a 5-3 lead against the Cubs in the 7th.  But the opportunity came up to pinch hit in an attempt to increase the lead.  That failed and hot-and-cold Jack Baldschun replaced Shantz. But a single was followed by 2 wild pitches and then a walk. At this point it should have been time to pull Baldschun but Mauch left him in.  And Billy Cowan drilled a 3-run homerun and the Cubs had the lead 6-5. They even added to that lead and went on to win 7-5. Lindy McDaniel picked up the win in relief of Bob Buhl.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – The Colts are really struggling to score these days and that trend continued as Roger Craig held them to 5 hits and just one run.  The Cardinals got a homerun from Bill White and a big 2-run shot from Julian Javier that put the game out of reach at 5-1.  Craig finished out and kept it that way for the win.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – Jack Fisher completely shut down the Pirates offense on just 3 hits as he tossed a nice shutout at them.  His Mets teammates helped out with a pair of runs in the 2nd from Jesse Gonder and added a 3rd run in the 8th for a 3-0 win.

Hi Gary,
Congrats on the perfect game and it's even better that it was against the Yankees, sorry Mike. Oh and those Cubs are really a thorn in the Phillies side, again they took it to them. It seems like every time the Phillies hook up with the Cubs they get side swiped.

A perfect game, doesn't get any better than that.  It had to be fun!!

All of us dream of a no-hitter, much less perfection!!

Can the Bucs surge to the top??  Interesting N.L. race you have going on.  Looks like the A.L. may be a one team show??

Tigers split as contenders all pick up half a game.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Tuesday, August 18th, 1964

 

Fenway Park, Boston – Robin Roberts continued his turnaround as he held the Red Sox to 1 run over 7 innings. Dick Hall came on to finish up and hold the 3-1 lead. Sam Bowens cracked 2 homeruns to account for all of Baltimore’s runs as they pick up one game in the loss column against Detroit.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – Claude Osteen has impressed many folks this year as Washington’s best pitcher by far but even he could not stop the soaring Twins. Bob Allison ripped a 2-run homerun and Tony Oliva added 3 more hits to his league-leading total as the Twins racked up 6 runs against Osteen though only 4 were earned.  But that was plenty for Jim Kaat who struck out 9 and went the distance for the 6-3 win.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – The A’s had one big inning against rookie Luis Tiant when Manny Jimenez ripped a 3-run homerun and was followed by a Rocky Colavito solo shot.  All told the A’s scored 5 runs in the 3rd inning.  Though they did not score at all after that, Diego Segui kept it close enough and when the Indians rallied for 3 in the 7th, Wes Stock quickly came in to stop the bleeding and preserve a 6-4 win. In the second game, the A’s jumped out to an early 6-0 lead against rookie Tommy John with Ed Charles leading the way with 3 hits and a pair of RBI’s. Starter Bob Meyer almost lost that lead when the Indians rallied for 5 runs over the next three innings before Ted Bowsfield came on and once again held the lead as the A’s swept Cleveland to their 6th straight loss by a score of 6-5.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – In the opener of a double header, the Tigers were surprised at home when Dan Osinski got a spot start and held Detroit to just 3 hits and 1 run. And maybe Mickey Lolich is suffering from overwork as he was lit up for the second straight game. The Angels scored 7 runs against him in the 5th inning led by key hits from Bob Perry, Jimmy Piersall, and Felix Torres. Osinski made that stand for a 7-1 win.  But in the second game, rookie George Brunet had trouble holding these Tigers as Dick McAuliffe homered and Al Kaline bashed out 3 hits.  Detroit rallied from a 3-0 deficit to overtake the Angels 6-3 with Joe Sparma recovering from a bad first few innings to go the distance for the 6-3 win and a split.

 

Comiskey Park, Chicago – And the Yankees’ offense continued to sputter without Mickey Mantle or Joe Pepitone as they only managed 1 run against Juan Pizarro on just 6 hits. Whitey Ford pitched well but still gave up 3 runs and that was way too many as he lost 3-1. Pizarro went the distance for the win. No one on Chicago had a big game but they got key hits when needed for the win.

Cubs continue their role as designated thorn in the side of Philly

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Tuesday, August 18th, 1964

 

Connie Mack Stadium. Philadelphia – Dennis Bennett again could not find the plate and was pulled after just 2 innings while trailing 2-1.  He had already walked 5 and John Boozer replaced him. But Ernie Banks caught up to a Boozer fastball and extended the Cubs lead to 4-1 and soon it was 5-1. For his part, Ernie Broglio was called on to pitch with only 3 days rest again and again pitched quite well. He needed help in the 7th but Lindy McDaniel was up to the task and the Cubs continued to enjoy their role as spoiler with a 5-2 win over the Phillies.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – Dick Farrell and the Colts looked as though they might end their 5 game losing streak as they carried a 3-2 lead into the 9th against the Cardinals. When Tim McCarver and Ken Boyer led off the 9th with singles, the call went to Hal Woodeschick to face Bill White. But Woodeschick uncorked a wild pitch and the game was tied. He got White but Mike Shannon singled and the Cards led 4-3. And guess who got the comeback win?  Bob Gibson has been having big problems lately and so entered the game in the 8th to work out his kinks. All he did was strike out the side and then became the pitcher of record with the 9th inning comeback.  So he proceeded to strike out 2 more Colts to pick up the 4-3 win.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – Dennis Ribant had pitched well for New York but when the Pirates cut the lead to 5-4 on a Manny Mota pinch hit homerun, he was replaced. In the next inning, neither Bill Wakefield, nor Darrell Sutherland, nor Larry Bearnath could stop Pittsburgh from scoring 4 runs and taking an 8-5 lead.  Roy Face came in to hold that for a Pirate win with Tommy Sisk getting the win after replacing a struggling Bob Veale.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – After playing their 24 inning game on Sunday, the Giants did not looked rested yet as Jim Maloney easily tied up the offense in knots while tossing a 4 hit shutout.  Meanwhile, Gaylord Perry had carried a shutout of his own into the 9th when the Giants committed 2 errors (they had 4 on the day), allowing 2 unearned runs to score.  Cincinnati picked up the 2-0 win and passed the Giants in the process.

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – Don Drysdale at home is pretty tough and so he proved again today as he held the Braves to a pair of runs on 5 hits to squeak out a 3-2 win. Tommy Davis continued to heat up with a homerun, a triple, and a single while driving home a run and scoring twice. The win was Drysdale’s 18th to put him ahead of his opponent, Tony Cloninger.
