Hi Gary,
Wow again the Cubs put it to the Phillies you know Mauch has to be pulling his hair out losing to the Cubbies. If the Phillies lose out on the pennant they can thank the Cubs for it. They have got to be counting the games left with this team who seems to have their number. Just when the Phillies look to be making their move they lose to a team that they should be pounding. I love watching this race in the NL unfold so many twist and turns so far. But with that said you have to give it to those Braves they just keep hanging on to first place. When they seem to need a big win they get it. This is like watching an old western shootout at high noon. Great job Gary keep it going buddy.

The Tigers seem to overachieve in replays across the board. Big time strat mojo at work here. Can the rest of the league bring them back to reality? It doesn't look that way at all.

The National League has stolen the nail-biter award in 1964; that's undeniable.

Odd that both the Cardinals and Yankees are limping along (really limping in NY's case!), stumbling towards the end. I honestly think that the 1965 team has the potential to finish higher than these stumblebums.

From the better late than never files...just wanted to say congrats on the perfecto and perhaps even more so on the 24-inning second game of a double-dip.  Talk about great moments in Strat history...the dice, they 'were angry that day my friend...like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli' - a Seinfeld reference for our dear friend Rezz.

Twins stay hot. Can they catch Detroit?

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Wednesday, August 19th, 1964

 

Fenway Park, Boston – Boog Powell doubled home a pair as the Orioles built a 4-0 lead for rookie Wally Bunker. But the Red Sox started chipping away at that lead led by Dick Stuart’s 3 hits including a homerun. And so though Bunker was still pitching reasonably well, Boston managed to tie the game by the 7th. Then in the 8th with two outs, Dalton Jones hit a homerun down the line in right for a Boston lead.  That brought out Dick Radatz and the game was over as the Monster struck out a pair in the 9th and Boston won 5-4.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – Harmon Killebrew homered early as the Twins got off to an early lead against Washington.  But a 2-base error on a bunt allowed Washington to tie the game in the bottom of the 9th and so the game went into extra innings.  But the Twins are the hottest team in the A.L. now and they showed it by recovering and then winning it in the 13th on Bob Allison’s second homer of the game.  Jim Perry tossed 2 innings of relief to pick up the win.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – Cleveland finally snapped its losing streak as Chico Salmon’s 3-run blast in the 6th was followed by a pair more runs and that 5-run inning carried the Indians to an 8-3 victory.  Sam McDowell was not sharp but got the win with help from Sonny Siebert. Salmon ended the game with 4 RBI’s on a pair of hits as the rookie raised his average over .300.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – Detroit’s Dave Wickersham and Los Angeles’ Bob Lee held their opponents scoreless through 7 innings. Wickersham made that 8 innings as the Angels were powerless against him. But in the bottom of the 8th, Lee’s 2-hitter was in jeopardy when he walked the leadoff batter and then gave up a double to Don Wert. Bob Duliba was called in and added gas to the fire as the Tigers did not stop until they had scored 5 runs for a commanding 5-0 lead. Wickersham calmly dispatched the Angels in the 9th for a 5-0 win, his 17th of the year.

 

Comiskey Park, Chicago – The tone was set as Moose Skowron homered in the first inning off of his old teammates and Chicago took a 3-0 lead over Jim Bouton and the Yankees.  The way the Yankee offense has gone lately, the game was effectively over as Joe Horlen only needed to hang on. Tom McGraw later homered for a 5-0 lead and then the Yankee bullpen took over and allowed 5 more runs as Chicago walked away with a laugher; winning 10-3.

Phillies Phinally beat Cubs. Reds are hottest team in N.L. now.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Wednesday, August 19th, 1964

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – This time Gene Mauch made sure he stuck with Bobby Shantz and it paid off as Shantz came in to relieve Art Mahaffey.  Mahaffey had pitched a great game facing off against 20-game winner Larry Jackson. A 1-1 tie was broken in the 7th when Johnny Briggs’ sacrifice fly brought home Clay Dalrymple and the lead. Shantz came on and Jackson had lost only his 5th game of the year; a heartbreaking 2-1 Philly victory.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – Ken Johnson pitched a great game for Houston, going 11 full innings and holding the Cardinals to 1 run. Gordon Richardson also pitched well and left a tie game at 1-1 after 8 innings.  Barney Schultz relieved and they might still be playing except that Lou Brock dropped a routine fly to left with 2 outs and a man on third in the 11th.  Johnson got the 11-inning, complete game win 2-1 while Schultz took the loss on an unearned run.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – The Pirates and Mets had fought to a 4-4 tie after 6 innings but Gene Freese’s 3rd RBI of the game put Pittsburgh up 5-4 in the 8th. Tommy Sisk looked to be the winner in relief of Vern Law while Al Jackson looked to be the loser. Pittsburgh fireman Al McBean came on to sew up the victory.  But no one told the Mets that. McBean got one quick out before Jim Hickman singled.  Joe Christopher added to his earlier homerun and single with a game-tying triple. Frank Bork relieved to face Jesse Gonder but Wayne Graham pinch hit and singled sharply. That was the ballgame with Gary Kroll picking up the New York win in relief and McBean taking the loss.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – The Giants really need a day off. Billy O’Dell pitched well and Willie Mays homered but Mays’ hit was only one of 4 and the only run the Giants could score. O’Dell left trailing just 2-1 after a Frank Robinson homerun but Billy Pierce relieved and allowed 3 Cincinnati runs in the 9th and the final was not close.  The hot Reds won their 5th straight with Bob Purkey going the distance.

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – Larry Miller has not been that impressive for the Dodgers and he did not improve that impression after today.  The Braves rolled over him for 5 runs on 10 hits in less than 5 innings. Denny Lemaster was the leading hitter for the Braves with 4 hits and 2 RBI’s, joining Gene Oliver who also had 4 hits. All told, Milwaukee scored 10 runs for an easy 10-4 win.

Hi Gary,
You have to hand it to those Cubs they scare the pants off of the Phillies every time the Phils have to play them. Mauch has to be looking at the schedule to see when is the last time they play each other.

I sure hope the Mick stays healthy for a while after he returns.

Killebrew has a real shot at Ruth and Maris BOTH. This could get real interesting.

Hi Mike,
You might be right about Killebrew having a shot. You know how power hitters are sometimes they get into groove for a week or two and start launching balls out of the park on what seems a daily bases. I think he will need to have a few of games where he goes yard a couple of times in order to have a chance at 60 or 61. But if anyone can give it a shot Killebrew can. We will have to keep an eye on his chase.

Big news out of New York

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Thursday, August 20th, 1964

 

Fenway Park, Boston – Frank Malzone had 2 singles and 2 homeruns while driving in 3 runs as Boston kept pace with the Orioles. Norm Siebern had homered for Baltimore while adding two other hits as they bashed out 10 hits against Jack Lamabe.  And so it was tied at 4-4 going into the 9th with the bullpens in for both teams. With both Dick Radatz and Arnold Early needing a rest, Bob Heffner was on the mound for Boston. With one out, Jackie Brandt singled.  Luis Aparicio followed with another single and Heffner was in trouble. But he got Siebern to pop out and bring up Brooks Robinson.  Robby has had a somewhat disappointing season thus far but not today as he ripped a line drive that scored Brandt from second standing. Dick Hall relieved Harvey Haddix and tossed a 1-2-3 inning to preserve the 5-4 Baltimore win.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – Lee Stange dominated the Kansas City A’s, fanning 12 and limiting them to 4 hits and one run.  His Indian teammates responded with 2-run homeruns from Leon Wagner and Max Alvis to go on to an easy 6-1 victory.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – The leading Tigers have shown a decided knack for coming up with the big hit when they need it. Today, Hank Aguirre had pitched another great game but the Angels had scored one run and, facing Dean Chance, that could be fatal. In the bottom of the 8th, however, pinch hitter George Thomas drew a walk leading off. Bill Bruton put down a beauty of a bunt, beating it out and getting two runners on board. Jerry Lumpe moved them over with a bunt but Al Kaline popped out. That left it up to Gates Brown and the Gator came through with a shot down the line that went for a stand up double.  Both runners scored and the Tigers had their late rally for a lead. But the drama was not over. Larry Sherry came on to pitch and was immediately touched for a Lu Clinton single. Albie Pearson bunted and Sherry bobbled the ball, rushed his throw, and the runners were at 2nd and 3rd with no outs. Sherry struck out Bob Rodgers for the first out. Pinch hitter Willie Smith then hit a medium fly to center. Clinton tagged. Bruton threw on a line from center and caught Clinton at home; double play!  The game was over and the Tigers had won another improbable game.  Fred Gladding who had relieved Aguirre earlier got the win with Sherry saving the game.

 

Comiskey Park, Chicago – The Yankees finally got Mickey Mantle and Joe Pepitone back.  But it was Phil Linz leading off the game with a solo homerun against Ray Herbert that set the tone.  Mantle got into the act with his 28th homerun of the year in the 6th.  By then, the Yankees were leading the White Sox 2-0 because rookie Mel Stottlemyre was once again pitching a great game.  In only his third start of his career, Stottlemyre finally got a victory as he held Chicago to just 3 hits and tossed a shutout for the 2-0 win. Stottlemyre has now pitched 25 innings while allowing just 4 runs on 13 hits but is only 1-1 thanks to the anemic offense that has followed him around.

Phillies half game back!

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Thursday, August 20th, 1964

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – And the Phillies, who at one time were wallowing in 9th place, find themselves just ½ game out of first.  The fickle Philly crowd was all cheers today as the Pirates came to town for a big 5-game weekend, opening with a double header today.  Jim Bunning faced off against Joe Gibbon in the opener. Bunning was not sharp as Bill Mazeroski touched him for a 2-run shot early though Johnny Callison answered with a solo shot. Rookie Alex Johnson had a pair of doubles and drove in 2 as the Phillies ran up 4 runs but Don Clendenon’s pinch hit homerun tied it in the 7th. Then Callison answered with a 2-run double followed by a Gus Triandos 2-run homer and the Phillies led for good, 8-4. Jack Baldschun finished up for Bunning for the win.  The second game saw Ray Culp facing Steve Blass. Both pitched very well. Willie Stargell singled home one in the first off of Culp while Bobby Wine executed a perfect squeeze in the 2nd to tie it. Wine then repeated his squeeze play act in the 4th for a 2-1 lead. Then Culp, Ed Roebuck, and finally Bobby Shantz took over and held that lead for a 2-1 win and the sweep.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – Frank Robinson had 3 hits, a pair of homeruns, and 3 RBI’s for the Reds.  Unfortunately for his team, that was all of the runs and half of Cincinnati’s hits. The rest of the game belonged to the Giants who rolled for 9 runs on just 7 hits led by homeruns from Willie McCovey and Orlando Cepeda. Bob Bolin went the distance for the easy win while rookie Sammy Ellis was rocked early and Joey Jay was rocked late.

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – Frank Howard came out of his doldrums with an RBI single and a 2-run homerun to lead the Dodgers to 7 runs – more than they often get in a week.  Still, that was just barely enough for a win since starter Phil Ortega was also touched by the Braves offense while a late lead was lost due to an error. But the Dodgers scored late against Chichi Olivo and Bob Miller scarfed up another relief win with a late 8th inning rally and a 7-5 Dodger win.

Hi Gary,
Oh don't look now but here come the Phillies just a 1/2 game out as the Braves look to be cracking a little bit. The Phillies have to keep the pressure on the Braves and hope they don't see the Cubs anytime soon. Sweeping two from the Bucs has to be a big boost for the Phillies. But there is still a ways to go so let see if the Phillies can stay hot or will they blow it like they did in real life.

6-run 9th hands hot Twins a win over Detroit

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Friday, August 21st, 1964

 

Fenway Park, Boston – A pair of lefties tried their luck at Fenway and neither faired that well but neither was around for the decision, either. Al Downing made it into the 7th inning for New York but gave up 10 hits including a Felix Mantilla homerun.  But he still had the lead at 4-3 when he left as Boston starter Ed Connally gave up 11 hits in 7 innings. However, Pete Mikkelsen relieved Hal Reniff who relieved Downing but Mikkelsen served up a game-tying, pinch hit triple to Lee Thomas and the game went into extra innings. That meant Dick Radatz for Boston and Ralph Terry for New York. One would expect this to be a Boston win at this point but Roger Maris timed a Radatz blazer leading off the 12th for a 5-4 lead. Radatz then fell apart as Phil Linz ripped his 4th hit of the game to drive in another run. He eventually scored as the Yanks scored 3 times, Terry finished things up, and the Yankees had a 7-4 win.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – The rains came to Cleveland and washed out the Angels – Indians game.  They will make it up in a double header tomorrow.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – The A’s came to town with both teams having a chance to look at some young players. Washington’s young hurler Buster Narum showed his stuff as he went the distance. John O’Donoghue started for the A’s but he did not have much as Willie Kirkland ripped him for a pair of homeruns while veteran Don Lock also ripped a pair and catcher Don Leppert homered.  The Senators rolled up 7 runs thanks to all of the homeruns for a 7-4 win.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – Two trends continued in this big game between the leading Tigers and the streaking Twins: Minnesota’s ability to hit homeruns and Detroit’s weak bullpen.  Those two collided in the 9th inning today. Dick McAuliffe was a one-man wrecking crew as he beat Camilo Pascual for a triple and a homerun as Detroit built a careful 3-1 lead. Phil Regan had been relieved by Larry Sherry when Minnesota got their lone run in the 8th. A hit, a Sherry error, and then boom…Don Mincher unloaded for a 3-run shot. Fred Gladding replaced Regan and boom, boom…Bernie Allen homered and Rich Rollins homered. All those booms were good for 6 runs as the Twins rang up their 8th straight win with the comeback victory. Johnny Klippstein had replaced Pascual in the 8th and got credit for the win.

 

Comiskey Park, Chicago – Sam Bowens homered off of Gary Peters in the first for a quick 2-0 Baltimore lead. But the White Sox got to Dave McNally in the first two innings to take a 3-2 lead.  Then both pitchers settled in and nothing happened until the 8th. Here Hoyt Wilhelm appeared but a walk and an error put runners on base for Boog Powell. The big left fielder singled, tying the game. The game stayed tied going into the 10th. With Eddie Fisher now pitching, Chicago’s recurring problem reared its ugly head: knuckleballs eluding the catcher. Sam Bowens led off with a single and went to second on a knuckler that J.C. Martin could not handle – even with his pillow glove [note from the future: these were outlawed in the 1965 season]. With Bowens on second, Brooks Robinson moved him to third with a bunt.  And then it happened again.  A Fisher knuckler bounced 3 feet in front of the plate for another wild pitch and the go-ahead run scored. And that was that. Dick Hall finished a 1-2-3 bottom of the 10th for the 4-3 win as Baltimore picked up a game on the leading Tigers.

Phillies blow chance to move into first.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Friday, August 21st, 1964

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – The Phillies had a chance to move into first but they went into the 9th tied at 2-2 against the Pirates.  Ed Roebuck relieved Chris Short to start the inning but Donn Clendenon singled and Willie Stargell ripped a line drive into the corner that bounced around for a stand up triple and the lead. The Phillies then fell apart as two errors and a wild pitch led to 2 more runs and the Pirates led 5-2. Al McBean had replaced Bob Friend earlier and stayed on for the win.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – Andre Rodgers hit a solo homerun in the 2nd and then the Cubs rolled up 4 runs in the 3rd led by a bases-loaded, Ron Santo double to knock out Mets starter Galen Cisco. With Dick Ellsworth carrying a no-hitter into the 5th and a 1 hitter into the 9th that 5-0 lead looked pretty safe. Then a single and a Bobby Klaus homerun made it 5-2. When Ron Hunt followed with a solo shot, Ellsworth was pulled for Lindy McDaniel.  He gave up a single to Ed Kranepool but Joe Christopher flew out and pinch hitter Jesse Gonder bounced into a double play and the Cubs had hung on for a 5-3 win.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – Eddie Mathews homered and the Braves turned in a 4-run third inning and against weak hitting Houston that is usually pretty good.  But Warren Spahn has just not been the domineering lefty that we have come to know. By the bottom of the 3rd, the Colts had already tied the game and then a Denis Menke error put the Colts ahead 5-4.  Spahn was pulled as Bob Sadowski kept the Colts from inflicting any further damage. Finally in the 7th, Gene Oliver’s pinch hit double tied the game and so we went into extra innings; a lot of extra innings.  No one scored until the bottom of the 16th. Now facing Billy Hoeft, Bob Aspromonte hit a tough grounder to Menke at short. He could not get the handle and then threw wildly to first. Aspro ended up on 2nd and then went to third on a ground out. With the infield drawn in, Eddie Kasko hit a sharp grounder that got through and the game was over.  The Colts had downed the Braves 6-5 in 16 innings. Veteran Don Larsen picked up the win in relief.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – Curt Simmons may be the ace of St. Louis this season but he never got out of the 1st inning against the Giants. Willie Mays hit a 3-run shot before Simmons had logged an out and after pitcher Ron Herbel had doubled home three more runs, Simmons was gone and the Giants led 6-0. Al Dark took the opportunity to start resting some regulars as they built the lead to 10-0 by the 4th inning. The Cards finally got on board against a tiring Herbel but it was never close as the Giants won 10-3.

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – Once again the Reds had trouble scoring against the Dodgers though this time it was Joe Moeller fooling them.  Moeller pitched his best game of the year, striking out 9, walking no one, and limiting the Reds to one run.  But headed into the bottom of the 8th, the Dodgers had only scored once against Joe Nuxhall and Nuxy was still pitching. Then Willie Davis led off with a single and Tommy Davis followed suit sending Willie to third. Ryne Duren came on and almost got out of trouble as he got two outs without the runners scoring. Then disaster struck as Duren uncorked a wild pitch and the Dodgers led 2-1.  Moeller finished up for only his 2nd win in 18 starts but it was a beauty. Also on a positive Dodger note, Frank Howard continued to exit his season-long slump with 2 more hits and another homerun though his average is still mired at .178.

Hi Gary,
Oh those Phillies just when they look to be in position to make a move they lay a clinker. It's like the baseball Gods are just teasing them. Oh well back to the grind.

Hondo has been caught in the Dice Gods' "loser" pool, the one where the dice totally ignore the odds and create their own. It seems to me that usually this manifests itself with a higher batting average or way more power, not less. .178?.....yikes!

Mike - Frank Howard just cannot buy a hit.  In reality, his season was so bad that he considered giving up baseball. The trade to Washington over the winter will rejuvenate him but this season is a complete loss.

Big game rained out. New Yankee owners must be reconsidering thier purchase.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Saturday, August 22nd, 1964

 

Fenway Park, Boston – In the opener, Whitey Ford barely got out of the first inning as Boston ripped him for 2 runs before an out had been recorded and then added 3 more in the 2nd.  With the anemic Yankee offense, that should have been enough to win and it was. Bill Monbouquette went the distance while holding New York to 2 runs.  Tony Conigliaro led the way with 3 RBI’s on a pair of hits. And then in the second game, Rollie Sheldon continued his forgettable season by serving up homeruns to Lee Thomas and Russ Nixon to fall behind 4-2. Again, that was plenty for Earl Wilson to run out for the 4-2 win. Along with Nixon and Thomas, Carl Yastrzemski had a pair of doubles and 2 RBI’s.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – The Indians are sinking fast and thoughts of next year are starting to occupy long-suffering Indian fans. Willie Smith ripped a 3-run homerun off of Pedro Ramos for the lead and Sonny Siebert came on and made things worse as the Angels rolled to an 8-4 win in the opener of a double header. Rookie Bill Kelso got the start and the win though he got help from Don Lee. Joe Adcock ripped his 30th homer of the year in the win. In the second game, Fred Newman and Jack Kralick had pitched to a 2-2 tie in regulation as Gary Bell took the hill for Cleveland in the 10th. He was greeted by a Jimmy Piersall homerun and then proceeded to walk a pair and give up 2 more hits as the Angels rolled for 4 runs. Bob Duliba finished up for Aubrey Gatewood and the Angels had a 6-2 win and a sweep.

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – Jim King had homered and the Senators had taken a 5-4 lead over the A’s heading into the 8th. Claude Osteen was on the mound. Then the A’s got busy. A walk and an error put runners at 2nd and 3rd. Ron Kline was called on to relieved. And then Jim Hannan was called on to relieve. 4 hits and 2 walks later, the A’s had a commanding 9-5 lead.  The big blows were 2-run hits by Nelson Mathews and Doc Edwards. Ken Sanders was the pitcher of record at the time as Johnny Wyatt came on to finish things off for a 9-6 win.  The loss dampened Chuck Hinton’s day as the Washington outfielder had 4 hits including a triple, scored twice, and drove home 2 runs.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – The Minnesota – Detroit game was washed away by rain. They will play a makeup double header tomorrow.

 

Comiskey Park, Chicago – Luis Aparicio had homered and the Orioles had given Steve Barber a 3-0 lead over Chicago by the 5th. Starter Johnny Buzhardt could not repeat his perfect performance of his last start as he was pinch hit for in the 5th as the White Sox began a comeback. They tied it by the 6th, knocking out Barber. Dave Vineyard came on but got into trouble and Ron Hansen singled home a pair for a 5-3 Chicago lead. Russ Snyder hit a pinch hit homer for Baltimore in the 8th off of eventual winner Eddie Fisher but Hoyt Wilhelm came on to close things out and give Chicago a 5-4 win.

Braves pick up a game again.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Saturday, August 22nd, 1964

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadlephia – The Pirates jumped on Philly starter Dennis Bennett early for a 3-0 lead before Bennett settled down.  Philadelphia fought back but big defensive plays seemed to sap their momentum.  On the other side, a costly Philadelphia error made it 4-1.  Though Bob Veale was getting hit hard, his defense kept him in the game and no bigger play occurred than Willie Stargell gunning down Richie Allen at the plate when he tried to score on a Johnny Callison double.  That was big because Gus Triandos crushed a homerun immediately after.  So now the score was 4-3 with 2 outs instead of 4-4 with one out. Veale finished out the inning before finally hitting the showers. Then Jack Baldschun again had troubles in relief and allowed a couple of insurance runs to cross the plate giving Roy Face an easy time of it to finish the game for a big 6-3 win to keep Pittsburgh in the pennant hunt.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – The Cubs got homeruns from hot Ron Santo and Billy Cowan while Billy Williams bashed out 4 hits and rolled to an 11-2 lead over the Mets. Starter Bob Buhl faded late and homeruns from Joe Christopher and Jesse Gonder made the score look close at 11-7 but it was never really that close at all.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – The Houston offense is just not made for big comebacks. When the Braves ran out to an early 6-1 lead, starter Tony Cloninger had to feel like his 18th win was in the bag.  And it was. Cloninger went the distance, striking out 11 and limiting the Colts to 4 hits. Hank Aaron came out of his mini-slump with 4 hits while Felipe Alou homered and the leading Braves pummeled the Colts 8-1.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – Manager Al Dark has decided to let Willie McCovey start batting against lefties.  That paid off big when the huge outfielder crushed a pair of homeruns off of Ray Sadecki to help build up a 4-1 lead over St. Louis.  When Willie Mays added his 41st homerun of the year, Sadecki was gone and the Giants had a big 6-1 lead. Jim Duffalo had gotten a spot start for S.F. but was hurt batting in the 5th.  Struggling Bob Shaw replaced him and immediately gave up a pair of runs before Billy Pierce relieved.  Pierce stayed on for the finale and helped San Francisco to their third straight win and 3rd straight game with 7 or more runs in a 7-4 victory.

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – The only reason the Dodgers are still in the pennant hunt is Don Drysdale.  The big right-hander once again dominated as he held the Reds to just a pair of runs on a solo shot from red hot Frank Robinson and a chip shot from Leo Cardenas. Drysdale’s Dodger offense only managed 5 hits against Johnny Tsitouris and company but they made them count. Tommy Davis tripled home a pair and scored on a Ron Fairly hit. Tsitouris tossed 3 wild pitches helping 2 more runs to score and Fairly added another RBI on a sacrifice fly as the Dodgers got 5 economical runs for Drysdale. That was plenty for a 5-2 win and Drysdale’s 19th of the year.
