Cardinals back at .500 in the only game of the day.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Monday, August 31st, 1964

 

Busch Stadium, St. Louis – Today, Don Drysdale was denied in his first shot at winning 20 because he was simply outpitched by veteran lefty Curt Simmons.  It was a scoreless pitching duel until the 4th when St. Louis grabbed a 1-0 lead. Lou Brock doubled, was bunted to third, and scored on Dick Groat’s single.  It looked as though that might stand up with Simmons setting down the Dodgers with ease. St. Louis got an important insurance run in the 7th when Bill White had a clutch 2-out single to drive in Flood and a 2-0 lead. Even though he had allowed just 4 hits, Drysdale left the game for a pinch hitter in the 8th, trailing 2-0. That insurance run proved big in the 9th when Willie Davis hit a solo homerun to cut the lead to 2-1 but that was the only noise out of Los Angeles and Simmons went on to win his 15th by a score of 2-1.

Time for a September summary

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Monday, August 31st, 1964

 

And so we reach September and the pennant race enters its final lap. Let’s peek at what is coming for fans around the country.  But let’s start with the easy ones. Washington, Boston, Kansas City, and Cleveland are playing for next year. With rosters expanding, look to see some kids getting a shot to play.  Some hot prospects are Tommy Agee (of, Cle), John Odom (p, KCA), Lew Krausse (p, KCA) and Tommy Reynolds (of, KCA).

 

New York is really out of the race but they have not yet admitted that in the Bronx. But here is reality – they are 11 games behind Detroit in the loss column and only have 6 games head-to-head with Detroit so would need to sweep all 6 and still pick up 5 more games somewhere. In order to really have a shot, they need to go something like 30-3 the rest of the way.  But they have not had a winning month since May so a finish like that does not look to be in the cards.  Expect reality to sink in soon and prospects like Jake Gibbs (c), Roger Repoz (of), and Mike Hegan (1b) get a chance to play.  The same can be said of Los Angeles who is 14 games behind. They need to be looking to next season and give some prospects a shot. The Angels are high on Paul Schaal (3b) and Rick Reichardt (of).

 

Everyone else can be said to have at least an outside chance to catch Detroit if the wheels fall off the Motor City Tigers. Chicago is 9 games back with only 4 left against Detroit. Much like New York, they would have to sweep and then pick up 5 games somewhere. But their offense has sputtered all year and Moose Skowron just cannot hit like he used to. Don’t expect miracle.  Instead, look ahead to next year and Ken Berry (of) and Bruce Howard (p).

 

When we get to Minnesota, we may have a legitimate contender. They are just 5 back of Detroit in the loss column but have no games left head-to-head. They just recently blew two leads against Detroit and hope those losses don’t come back to haunt them. But they are bashing the ball and have the likely rookie of the year in Tony Oliva and the homerun king in Harmon Killebrew.  They just need their pitching to hold up to make a run and hope someone else can knock off Detroit. If not, there are some hopefuls in Dave Boswell (p) and Joe Nossek (of).

 

And now the real threat to Detroit is Baltimore. They had the best record in the AL in August. They started the season slow when Robin Roberts looked washed up but he has turned around his season and so has lefty Steve Barber and they are charging fast. Boog Powell is a legitimate MVP candidate with 40 homeruns already and Luis Aparicio is playing like a kid again. They trail the Tigers by only 3 games in the loss column and have 4 games left head-to-head.  Those will be the key games to watch.  If either team takes 3 out of 4, the other is in trouble. Baltimore has some young blood to look at in Paul Blair (of) and Lou Piniella (of) and already have the best rookie pitcher in the league (Wally Bunker). But in the heat of a pennant race, don’t expect to see many fall call-ups get much playing time.

 

And that brings us to the leaders, Detroit.  They have played consistently well all season and there is no reason to believe they will falter now. They still have 4 games each against Chicago and Baltimore and 6 games against New York. But the reality is that if they just play .500 ball from here, they will finish with 96 wins. That is the target that other teams need to shoot for.  Baltimore would have to go 21-10 to catch that. Minnesota would have to go 22-8. Chicago would have to go 24-6 and New York would have to go 31-2.  So, that’s the challenge. And if Detroit – who has yet to have a losing month – plays better than .500, the odds are definitely stacked in their favor to win it.  And to top it off, the AL front office has granted Detroit permission to start printing World Series tickets.  Oh, and their top prospects are all outfielders – Jim Northrup, Mickey Stanley, and Willie Horton. If Detroit extends their lead, these kids could see some time.

And here's the bird's eye view of the N.L.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Tuesday, September 1st, 1964

 

So August is behind us and a great pennant race looms ahead. Fully 8 teams still have a real shot at the pennant and no dominant team ahead of anyone. The two non-contenders are New York and Houston. Both will be looking ahead to next year.  Houston has called up many kids to take a look at.  Hot prospects are Joe Morgan (2b), Sonny Jackson (ss), Rusty Staub (of), Larry Dierker (p) and Dave Giusti (p). New York has pretty much already called up their best minor leaguers.

 

Despite only a .500 record and threats to fire the manager, St. Louis is only 8 games behind and if they could find themselves, could make a run.  But they need a long winning streak and unless struggling ace Bob Gibson can find himself, it is more likely to be a long September. On the bright side, 21 of their games are against the top teams so they can make up some ground quickly. But don’t look for any bright prospects; they have already been called up and are playing.

 

And the big surprise is Chicago. They are tied with the Cardinals and likewise are only 8 games back. The big three of Billy Williams, Ron Santo, and Ernie Banks have all gotten hot while ace Larry Jackson is the prime candidate for the Cy Young award. Their schedule is tough, however, but hope springs eternal in the Windy City. Don Kessinger (ss) and Cal Koonce (p) are the most likely minor leaguers to see some time.

 

The defending champion Dodgers are only 7 games back in the loss column and so within striking distance but unless Don Drysdale can pitch every day, they are not likely to make up that ground. The offense has fallen apart and so has Sandy Koufax. If Koufax could magically recover, then L.A. might have a chance. But don’t expect that and instead look at prospects Bill Singer (p) and Willie Crawford (of).

 

Then we jump to the real contenders. The Reds and Pirates are tied and only 3 games back. The Pirates were in first much of the early part of the year but the hitting has fallen off some and the pitching was never great. They need the youngsters Willie Stargell, Bob Bailey, and Donn Clendenon to come through and hope to get some pitching from someone not named Bob Veale. Don’t expect much playing time for prospects Wilbur Wood (p) or Jerry May (c).

 

Cincinnati may be more balanced than Pittsburgh but has not been able to put things together. Frank Robinson is on the short list of MVP candidates but no one else has been consistent.  Same for the pitching staff. Maybe the key is rookie Bill McCool. He has been lights out both as a starter and a reliever and now is when you need that ace fireman to come out of the bullpen and squash a rally. Infielder Tommy Helms and catcher Jim Coker are thought of highly but likely will just not get to play much.

 

San Francisco at times has looked like the most dominant contender and they are only 3 games back in the loss column. But they go through some puzzling power outages where they can go several games without scoring. With Willie Mays, Orlando Cepeda, and rookie of the year candidate Jim Ray Hart, you would expect gobs of runs. The real run has been made when Willie McCovey has gotten hot. This big first baseman is the key for the Giants.  The deep starting pitching should help down the stretch though the bullpen has been an Achilles heel all season. Youngsters Randy Hundley (c), Jose Cardenal (of) and Japanese prospect Masanori Murakami (p) probably won’t get much time to play.

 

Philadelphia has returned from the depths of the standings to charge into a virtual tie for first.  They have done it with a juggling lineup that requires manager Gene Mauch to be constantly on his toes. Only Johnny Callison seems to have a fixed spot in the lineup though Richie Allen has suddenly gotten red hot and has helped tremendously in the recent charge. Jim Bunning is holding down the fort on the pitching staff though the rest is fairly makeshift. The kids that can contribute (Allen, Alex Johnson, Cookie Rojas) have all been up for a while.  The major concern in Philadelphia is the bullpen which has had trouble holding leads. They will make or break this team.

 

The Braves took over first in late July and are still there, albeit barely. Great hitting from Hank Aaron, Joe Torre, and rookie Rico Carty have carried this team and there is no reason to expect these guys to falter. The pitching is very suspect, however, and will be the key to whether they can stave off the likes of Philadelphia, San Francisco, or Cincinnati.

 

There are so many teams in the running that the schedule does not tell us much. Perhaps we should look at how many games each team has against the two also-rans; Houston and New York. That may show who has a slight schedule edge.

 

Team                  Mets        Colts        Total

Milwaukee              5             0            5   

Philadelphia           0             6            6

San Francisco          4             6           10

Pittsburgh             0             4            4

Cincinnati             5             0            5

Los Angeles            7             5           12

St. Louis              5             0            5

Chicago                0             2            2

 

Based on this, the Dodgers and Giants have a slight schedule edge over the rest with the Cubs have the toughest row to hoe.

Hi Gary,
Hard to imagine Koufax not up there in wins. However Big D seems to be doing his part for the Dodgers but it just might not be enough. But I must say the biggest disappointment has to be the Red Birds and how bad they have played. That is the surprise for me so far.

Chisox take key game against Detroit in a dandy

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Tuesday, September 1st, 1964

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – The Senators scored a pair in the first off of Lee Stange and another pair in the 4th for an early 4-0 lead over Cleveland. They made that 5-0 before the Indians finally got to Buster Narum, scoring 3 runs in the 7th. But Jim Hannan came on to relieve and pitched well as Washington beat Cleveland 5-3. Don Blasingame knocked home three runs on a pair of hits to lead the Senators.

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – The other big matchup is the fight for 2nd place between Baltimore and host Minnesota. Jim Kaat started for the Twins and was awful as the O’s scored in each of the first 5 innings to run up a 5-0 lead for Milt Pappas. Sam Bowens homered in the 4th for the Birds.  But the Twins still have their power and Harmon Killebrew and Jimmie Hall homered in the bottom of the 5th to cut the lead to 5-3. The Orioles extended the lead again to 6-3 only to see Hall hit another homerun and cut the lead to 6-5. Pappas was replaced as the Orioles once again extended the lead – this time out to 9-5. And Hall homered yet again to cut the lead to 9-7.  Hall finally ran out of tricks and Baltimore held on for a 9-7 win with Pappas becoming the first 20 game winner in the AL. On the day, Hall went 4 for 4 with 3 homeruns and 5 RBI’s but it was not enough.

 

Comiskey Park, Chicago – The big matchup in the middle of this week is Detroit heading into the Windy City. And fans got a real treat when Juan Pizarro and Dave Wickersham dueled to a scoreless tie after 9 full innings.  Neither team was really able to threaten much. Pizarro pitched a scoreless 10th and Wickersham started the bottom of the 10th. J.C. Martin led off with a single and the call was made to Fred Gladding. A bunt moved the runner along but Gladding got Mike Hershberger on a pop out. Then Don Buford hit a tough grounder to Don Wert at third. Wert had no play and should have just held onto the ball.  But instead, he tried to make a great play and threw the ball away. Ken Berry, the pinch runner for Martin, scored from second and the White Sox had won a tough one, 1-0.

 

Municipal Stadium, Kansas City – Tony Conigliaro hit his 24th homerun while Tony Horton hit his first as the Red Sox pounded Orlando Pena for 4 runs in the 4th inning. They added 4 more in the 5th thanks in part to Dalton Jones and went on to roll over Kansas City 12-5. Boston’s Bill Monbouquette was not sharp as Nelson Mathews and Jim Gentile both homered but he stuck around and is getting closer to a .500 record at 10-13.

 

Chavez Ravine, Los Angeles – Tom Tresh and Roger Maris each hit a 2-run homerun and that was just enough for Whitey Ford to pick up his 15th win. Bill Stafford replaced him in the 8th and pitched 2 shutout innings against the Angels as the Yankees won the first game on a long road trip 4-3. For the Angels, rookie Rick Reichardt lived up to his press as he had 2 hits including a double and scored a run in his debut.

Phillies back in first

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Tuesday, September 1st, 1964

 

Shea Stadium, New York – It was no contest in New York as the Giants scored in each of the first 4 innings for a 10-1 lead. Juan Marichal started but with the huge lead he left after 5 innings to rest for the big game against Philly later this week. The big lead gave a lot of September call-ups a chance to play as manager Al Dark emptied his bench to give the regulars some rest. Before leaving, Willie Mays went 3 for 3 with a homerun and a double while driving in 3. The win coupled with the Braves loss puts the Giants within 1 ½ games of first.

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – The Phillies are now in first place as Jim Bunning held the Colts to 2 runs while Houston’s Bob Bruce could only hold Philly to 3 runs. Jim Wynn provided all of the Houston offense with a homerun and an RBI single. The Phillies bunched together their hits to score all three runs at once as neither team could really get much going. Bobby Shantz replaced Bunning in the 9th after he walked the leadoff batter and prevented any damage for a 3-2 Philadelphia win and first place.

 

Crosley Field, Cincinnati – The Cubs came to Cincy with both teams looking to make a September move. Fans were treated to a real pitching duel between Chicago’s Bob Buhl and the hometown’s Bob Purkey. Both tossed 3 hitters and pitched the entire game. But the Cubs had Ron Santo cut down at the plate in their only scoring opportunity while Pete Rose beat the relay from the outfield in the Reds’ only opportunity and the Reds won a heartbreaker, 1-0.

 

Forbes Field, Pittsburgh – Gene Freese and Gene Alley both homered as the Pirates rolled a lucky 7 runs over the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th innings knocking out rookie lefty Pete Richert and a 7-0 lead over the Dodgers. Some kids got to play with the big lead and Vern Law went the distance to shut out the Dodgers on 5 hits. The final was 7-0 as the Pirates picked up a game on losing Milwaukee.

 

Busch Stadium, St. Louis – If St. Louis wants to get back into the hunt they need Bob Gibson to improve. The imposing right-hander started the game against the Braves strongly. It did not hurt that his Cardinal teammates were pounding Milwaukee ace Tony Cloninger. Lou Brock led off the bottom of the first with a homerun. In the 2nd, Gibson singled home a pair and Brock followed with a 2-run double and the Cards led 5-0. Perhaps Gibson let up after that because Denis Menke homered and the Braves scored 3 quick runs to cut the lead. And the Cards calmly added three more of their own for a commanding 8-3 lead. Ed Bailey homered for the Braves to make it 8-4 and the Braves loaded the bases in the 9th before Barney Schultz was called in to rescue Gibson and hang on to the 8-4 lead for a win.

Interesting that both real life winners MT come alive a bit and suddenly you have two very intimidating spoilers of the highest caliber just itching to get their noses dirty....could be very interesting if either or does come alive down the stretch.

Hi Gary,
Well this NL race is as hot as the sun right now. It won't take much for any of these 5 teams to take over first place. The question is who will get the hottest down the stretch?

Chicago knocks off Detroit again. Race getting tighter.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Wednesday, September 2nd, 1964

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C.– Rookie Luis Tiant started off like a house on fire when first called up but in his last 4 starts has struggled.  But not today as he faced the Senators.  Tiant baffled Washington hitters to the tune of just 4 hits. He struck out 8 though he walked 5 but still tossed a shutout.  But it was almost not good enough as Alan Koch tossed his best game for Washington and was likewise shutting out the Indians on just 2 hits. But in the 9th, Dick Howser singled with one out and Vic Davalillo doubled with Howser holding at third.  Chico Salmon drew a walk and lefty Don Loun made his major league debut by having to face Leon Wagner.  Wagner sliced a line drive to left to score Howser but Davalillo was out at the plate. Loun got the final out but Cleveland led 1-0. Tiant walked a pair in the bottom of the 9th but got out of trouble without help to win 1-0.

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – It was a back and forth game between contenders Minnesota and Baltimore. Jerry Adair homered in the 3rd for a 1-0 Baltimore lead. Bernie Allen responded and poor fielding led to a second run and Minnesota had the lead. In the 4th, Mudcat Grant was driven from the game as the Orioles scored 3 times when Adair drove in a run, scored a run, and a passed ball allowed the third run. This 4-2 Baltimore lead only lasted one inning when Harmon Killebrew hit a 2-run homer off of Wally Bunker to tie it at 4-4. Allen then continued to shine as he scored on a Rich Rollins hit for a 5-4 Minnesota lead and the end of Bunker. But Rollins gave it back with a 2-out error and a man on third and so the game was tied at 5-5 going into the 9th. A tired Al Worthington trudged out and tossed a 1-2-3 9th for the Twins. Dick Hall had entered in the 8th with a good inning but he only faced one batter in the 9th. Zoilo Versalles sent the local fans home happy when he connected with a Hall changeup for a homerun and a 6-5 Minnesota win.

 

Comiskey Park, Chicago – And the collar around Tiger fans’ necks just got a little tighter.  For the second straight game and 3rd time in the last 4, the Tigers were shutout. They have only scored 1 run in the last 4 games and now have a 4-game losing streak.  It was no contest today as Johnny Buzhardt shut them down on 6 hits. Rookie Joe Sparma had one of his bad games and got little help from the defense. The White Sox rolled up 8 runs with Don Buford garnering 3 hits and Pete Ward, Moose Skowron, and even Buzhardt each driving in a pair. So Chicago got through its first hurdle.  They had to sweep the Tigers during their short visit and they did. They still have to face Detroit for 2 more games on the road though, next week.

 

Municipal Stadium, Kansas City – The Red Sox and A’s lit up the scoreboard as they hit 9 homeruns between the two of them. Highly touted John Odom started for the A’s but the kid was gone after just 2 innings, trailing 5-1. Ken Harrelson hit a 3-run bomb in the 4th to cut the lead to 6-5 but Boston got more runs to make it 9-5. And that was no good either as Harrelson homered again along with Rocky Colavito and the A’s scored 7 times for a 12-9 lead. Felix Mantilla homered for the second time to make it 12-10 but Ed Charles homered and it was 14-10. Lee Thomas hit the 9th and final homerun in the 9th but the Red Sox fell short.  The A’s won 14-12 with Aurelio Monteagudo getting the win in relief and Jay Ritchie taking the loss.  

 

Chavez Ravine, Los Angeles – Jim Bouton held the Angels to 2 runs over 7 innings and Steve Hamilton pitched great when Bouton got into trouble in the 8th. Hal Reniff finished up and the Yankees had downed Los Angeles 5-2. On offense, New York took advantage of 2 errors and timely hitting to score their 5 runs. Tony Kubek had 3 hits while Bouton, Joe Pepitone, Mickey Mantle, and Ellie Howard each added an RBI.

Top 5 teams all win.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Wednesday, September 2nd, 1964

 

Shea Stadium, New York – Yesterday Masanori Murakami became the first Japanese player in the major leagues and today he became the first Japanese pitcher to win a game.  Jim Duffalo was not able to maintain a narrow 3-2 lead for Ron Herbel as Ron Hunt’s solo shot tied the game in the 7th. Murakami entered in the 8th and was the pitcher of record when the Giants smoked Ron Locke and the Mets for 5 runs in the 9th inning to win going away at 8-3. Harvey Kuenn’s bases-loaded, pinch hit single was the back-breaker in the inning. Jose Pagan followed with a 2-run double and the game was out of reach.

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – With all of the contenders winning today, the Phillies needed to beat the Colts just to stay ahead.  Art Mahaffey started but was not good enough to keep a narrow 4-3 lead as the Colts tied it with, once again, Jim Wynn doing most of the damage. But Frank Thomas’ sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 8th put the Phillies ahead 5-4 and Ed Roebuck held that for the win. Wynn had another big game against the Phils going 3 for 4 with a homerun and 2 RBI’s only to be matched by Johnny Callison who went 3 for 3 with 2 RBI’s.

 

Crosley Field, Cincinnati – The Reds jumped on Dick Ellsworth for 3 early runs but Ellsworth settled down hoping his Cubs would come back. Ernie Banks hit a homerun off of Jim Maloney to get to 3-1.  But Cal Koonce, who was just called up from the minors, was burnt by a couple of errors and some pretty poor pitching as the Reds scored 4 more in the 8th for a commanding 7-1 lead. Maloney stayed on for a 7-2 complete game win. Frank Robinson led the Reds with 3 hits and 3 RBI’s and took over the NL league in batting in the process.

 

Forbes Field, Pittsburgh – John Roseboro had homered and the Dodgers had an early 3-0 lead over Bob Friend and the Pirates. In the 5th, however, Pittsburgh batted around against Joe Moeller, scoring 5 times and taking the lead.  They then added to that while Friend settled down and went on to a 9-4 win.  Roberto Clemente’s 3-run homerun was the big blow in the big inning. He added a double to raise his average to .330, third best in the league.

 

Busch Stadium, St. Louis – The Braves got revenge for their ugly loss yesterday as they jumped all over Ray Washburn for a 5-0 lead in the first and never looked back. The final was a blistering 13-1 as Eddie Mathews drilled 2 homeruns and 5 RBI’s, joining Denis Menke and Rico Carty who each added a homerun.

Hi Gary,
Well just when the Tigers thought they had this race in hand up pop the Orioles & the Twins who are getting in striking distance. And Harmon Killebrew is having a year wow 47 dingers so far. And of course the Mick is killing it at the plate leading the league is batting average. However I'm a little surprised to see only one 20 game winner in the AL so far. Also looking at Dean Chance's era of 1.63 that is lights out performance, how many wins has that translated into for him? In the NL what a race they have going on in the senior circuit. It's almost too hard to predict who will take this thing. These teams seem to flip flop like a fish out of water. Great stuff Gary as always. Good luck the rest of the way.

Gene Mauch's not in charge of the Tigers, is he? Great action Gary, but I'd settle for just a close race in the N.L.

No but Chuck Dressen (who is in charge) is not much better (remember Bobby Thomson?).

Tigers sit back idly while Baltimore knocks off Minnesota

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Thursday, September 3rd, 1964

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – Brooks Robinson homered in the first for a short-lived Baltimore lead that the Twins tied by the end of the first.  Jackie Brandt put the O’s on top in the 2nd and Boog Powell ripped his 41st homerun of the year in the 5th for a 5-2 Baltimore lead and they never looked back. The main drama was an injury to starter Robin Roberts, leaving the game in the hands of the bullpen.  Just acquired veteran Sam Jones pitched 2 strong innings and was credited with the win since Roberts had not pitched the requisite 5 innings. Stu Miller, Dick Hall, and finally Harvey Haddix followed to hold on for a 6-4 win.  Baltimore takes the 3 game series 2 games to 1 in the scramble for the top in the AL.

 

Municipal Stadium, Kansas City – The A’s did not stop after yesterday’s onslaught as they once again crushed Boston pitching, punching out 20 hits in the process. The final was 15-5 with Boston starter Ed Connolly taking the brunt and if you are looking to next year, this rookie may not be on the squad. John O’Donoghue started and got the win for K.C. but he looked pretty bad too. Ted Bowsfield ended up pitching 3 innings and was credited with a save for his efforts. Doc Edwards led the way with 4 hits while Rocky Colavito had 4 RBI’s. Both had homeruns.  These overcame homeruns from Boston sluggers Dick Stuart and Felix Mantilla while catcher Bob Tillman also put one out.  But they came nowhere near offsetting the K.C. attack.

 

Chavez Ravine, Los Angeles – And once again, Mel Stottlemyre pitched a great game but this time he actually had a lead to work with. Mickey Mantle homered in the first for a 3-0 lead and the rookie then went to work on the Angels. Mantle later singled and scored again while Ellie Howard homered as the Yankees put up 7 runs, mostly against Bo Belinsky. Stottlemyre only lost his shutout bid in the 9th as he finally evened his record at 2-2 despite 6 great outings so far. The final was 7-2 as the Yankees sweep the 3-game series and relegate Los Angeles to “wait until next year” mode.

Hi Gary,
Also looking at Dean Chance's era of 1.63 that is lights out performance, how many wins has that translated into for him? .
J.Q.


J.Q. - Chance is 14-9.  Not bad for pitching for the worst offense in the league but nothing close to his actual record.  It originally looked like Wickersham, Lolich, and Pappas would all be 20 game winners but now it is not so clear.

Top 3 take care of business. Check out the rookies.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Thursday, September 3rd, 1964

 

Shea Stadium, New York – Beating teams you are supposed to beat: that is the mantra for the contenders. San Francisco did just that as they shook off a blown lead to score 4 runs over the last two innings to beat the Mets 9-5 and sweep the 3-game series. Billy Pierce got a spot start to rest the regular starters for the upcoming series against Philly. He got an early lead on a Willie Mays homerun but could not hold it. The Giants then went up 5-2 but Billy O’Dell came on and blew that lead too. Now tied at 5-5, the Giants went to work on the Mets bullpen with Willie McCovey getting a big 2-run pinch hit for the lead in the 8th. Del Crandell added a 2-run hit in the 9th for the 9-5 win. Bob Shaw got the win with Bob Bolin holding the lead.

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – Philadelphia also followed the mantra as they knocked off the Colts to sweep the series.  All the games were close but that is what leaders do: win the close ones. The Phillies bunched hits in the 5th for 3 runs off of Houston starter Hal Brown and added a 4th run in the 6th. Now leading 4-1, Ray Culp began to falter as the Colts rallied in the 8th but Bobby Shantz hung on and the leading Phils won again, 4-3.

 

Crosley Field, Cincinnati – The Reds’ drive for the pennant ran into Larry Jackson as the Cubs’ ace once again was in control, going the distance to pick up his 23rd win and almost a lock on the Cy Young award. Joe Nuxhall could not stop Ernie Banks whose 3-run homerun in the 6th added to solo shots from Billy Cowan and Billy Williams for a 5-0 lead. Vada Pinson managed to catch a Jackson fast ball for a 2-run shot but that was as close as Cincinnati could get to Jackson as the Cubs went on to a 5-2 win.

 

Busch Stadium, St. Louis – The Cards just look to be falling apart and probably manager Johnny Keane’s job with them.  Rumor has it that Gussie Busch has already decided but is waiting until the end of the season. In any case, the Braves once again embarrassed the Cards. They rang up 9 runs against the bullpen to make a close 3-2 game into a 12-4 rout. Rico Carty added to his rookie of the year credentials with 2 homeruns and was joined by hot Eddie Mathews and Joe Torre in the onslaught. Denny Lemaster only gave up a 1st inning homer to Ken Boyer and then slammed the door by striking out a season high 13 batters en route to the win.

 

The Rookie Crop – It is interesting that 3 rookies are playing big roles in the pennant race.  Richie Allen is playing great for Philadelphia, Rico Carty for Milwaukee, and Jim Ray Hart for San Francisco. All three are in the running for rookie of the year and it may depend on whether any of these three teams win the pennant.  Also interesting is that all three can hit and none of the three are very good in the field – and that is being kind.
