Back in action again. Only 1 game in the AL.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Tuesday, September 8th, 1964

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – A makeup game in Minnesota was the only game played today.  Harmon Killebrew came back from his injury and belted a 3-run homerun off of Al Downing in the first inning. When Bob Allison followed with a solo shot, Downing was yanked. The Yankees came back against rookie Dave Boswell and would get to within one run before the Twins would open up the lead again. When the Yankees scored 3 in the 8th to cut the lead to 8-7, Al Worthington came in and managed to hang on for the win. For the day, Killebrew had 5 RBI’s to raise his total to a league-leading 111. The loss ended New York’s winning streak at 7 games and was their first loss this month.

Only 1 game in the NL but Phils face Koufax - and drop into a tie for first.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Tuesday, September 8th, 1964

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – The only game played was a makeup game here in Philadelphia where the Dodgers let Sandy Koufax try out his arm after resting for 10 days.  And the rest seemed to work just fine as Koufax looked like last year’s model. He limited the Phillies to just 4 hits while striking out 14 as he dominated the game. The Phils could not score while the Dodgers were running the Phillies into the ground. Maury Wills and Willie Davis each had a pair of stolen bases and both scored. Frank Howard added a 2-run homerun and Koufax had a nifty 4-0 win to drop the Phillies into a flat-out tie with Milwaukee for first place.

Tigers continue to stumble a bit but Orioles don;t quite take advantage.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Wednesday, September 9th, 1964

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – Baltimore came to town for a double header and got a lot more than they bargained for. Sam Bowens hit a 2-run homerun off of Claude Osteen in the 3rd inning of the opener for a 2-0 lead. Robin Roberts was hurling for the Birds and pitched great, still carrying that 2-0 lead going into the bottom of the 9th. And then like earlier in the week, the Orioles could not hold a lead. Roberts got the first out when John Kennedy singled. Chuck Hinton hit a grounder to Luis Aparicio at short and instead of turning the game-ending double play, he booted the ball. Jim King hit a deep fly to right. It was caught but the runners advanced. Then disaster hit. Catcher Dick Brown could not come up with a low pitch and it skidded behind him for a passed ball and a run. Now the score was 2-1. Don Lock then pulled a shot down the line for a double and the game was tied. Dick Hall replaced Roberts, got the final out, and the game went into extra innings…a lot of extra innings.  Osteen was pitching great and pitched 13 full innings before leaving. Both bullpens were great as the game crawled into the bottom of the 18th inning. Sam Jones was pitching for Baltimore when opposing pitcher Ron Kline singled. Don Blasingame bunted him to second and Kennedy walked.  That was it for Jones as young Dave Vineyard came out to face Hinton. He got behind 3-0 and grooved one to Hinton.  And that was the ballgame as Hinton crushed the meatball into the seats for a 5-2 Washington win in 18 innings. But wait – there was another game yet to play.  The exhausted teams came back on to the field with rookie Frank Bertaina going for the O’s and Buster Narum for the Senators.  But this game was nothing like the first. Boog Powell crushed a pair of homeruns, catcher Charley Lau had 4 hits, Sam Bowens hit another homerun and the Orioles rolled to a 10-1 win with Bertaina going the distance.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – The last time that the Yankees came to Tiger Stadium, they were swept 5 games and tumbled out of contention. Now they have gotten hot in September and are hoping to somehow get back into the race. Whitey Ford toed the rubber against Mickey Lolich. But Mickey Mantle had missed that previous series. The Mick clobbered a Lolich offering deep into the left-field stands for a first-inning 2-0 lead. Hector Lopez misplayed a Dick McAuliffe line drive into a double in the second that allowed Detroit to score a run and cut the lead to 2-1. Ford kept that 2-1 lead into the 9th as both pitchers were on their games. But in the bottom of the 9th, Don Demeter led off with a double and the call quickly went to the newcomer, Pedro Ramos.  It is hoped that Ramos can give the flagging bullpen a lift but he did not show much in his first chance. He struck out Norm Cash but McAuliffe came through again with a single that scored Demeter and the game was tied. But at least Ramos did not lose the game. Lolich had pitched 9 strong innings but had been pinch hit for in the 9th so Fred Gladding came on to pitch. Bobby Richardson led off with his 4th hit of the game.  Disdaining the bunt, Tom Tresh followed with a double.  Gladding was having no part of Mantle and so walked him to load the bases. That brought up hot Joe Pepitone. Pepitone crushed Gladding first pitch into the overhang in right for a grand slam. And that was pretty much it. Hal Reniff finished out the inning and the Yankees had a 6-2 win.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – Bob Chance had 3 singles including a pair of RBI hits and Leon Wagner had crunched a 2-run shot to give Cleveland a 5-3 lead going into the 9th against Boston.  But highly touted youngster Jerry Walker relieved Dick Donovan in the 9th and immediately gave up a single and a double. That brought in Don McMahon who once again disappointed as he tossed a wild pitch for one run and then gave up sacrifice fly to Lee Thomas to tie the game. Then in the 10th with McMahon still pitching, Dick Stuart pounded a ball into the seats for a Boston lead.  Dick Radatz had appeared in the 9th and stayed on to pick up the 6-5 win.

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – The White Sox came to town in a battle for third place with the home Twins.  Jim Kaat was going after his 17th while Joe Horlen after his 16th. These two pitchers were being stingy as they did not allow a run between them through the first 6 innings. In the bottom of the 7th, Horlen loaded the bases and the call went to Hoyt Wilhelm.  And for the second time this week, the Chicago bullpen let them down. Rich Rollins ripped a single scoring a pair of runs. That was it but it was enough for Kaat.  The lefty finished off the game for a 5-hit shutout and a big win for Minnesota.

 

The Angels and A’s were not scheduled.

Phillies win but Braves keep pace.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Wednesday, September 9th, 1964

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – It was Jim Bunning facing Bob Gibson as the Cardinals hoped to stop the co-leaders while Philadelphia counted on its ace to keep winning.  Neither pitcher was sharp in the first as the Cards started with 3 straight hits and scored a pair but Johnny Callison homered to tie it. The Phillies added a run in the 3rd for the lead but Mike Shannon’s RBI single tied it in the 6th. With both pitchers still in there, the game went into the 9th. Bunning got through okay. Costen Shockley then led off the bottom of the 9th pinch hitting for Bunning and stroking a single off of Gibson. Then disaster loomed and a few teammates will be avoiding Gibson in the clubhouse. Catcher Tim McCarver let a low pitch get by him for a passed ball, putting pinch runner Adolpho Phillips on second. Then a grounder went to Ken Boyer at third. The perennial gold glove at third launched his throw into the dugout, Phillips scored from second, and Gibson had lost again. Bunning picked up his 18th win in the process.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – The Brave are really flying high these days. The co-leaders ripped into Al Jackson for 3 homeruns – by Gene Oliver, Lee Maye, and Felipe Alou to score 7 runs. They did not need that many though since ancient Warren Spahn was pitching one of his best games of the year. He held the Mets to 6 hits and tossed a shutout for a big 7-0 win to keep pace with the Phillies.

 

Forbes Field, Pittsburgh – The Pirates are not ready to give up yet. They have been playing well and only trail the leaders by 2 ½ games. It looked like they might lose today as ace Bob Veale fell behind early to Cincinnati when Deron Johnson ripped a 2-run homerun in the second inning. Gene Freese soloed off of Joe Nuxhall in the 2nd but the Reds made it 3-1 in the 4th. But Veale was gunning for his 20th win and settled down.  That gave Freese time to tie the game with his second homer. Bill Henry relieved for Cincy and served up a solo shot to rookie Gene Alley and the Pirates led.  By then, Veale was just about unhittable as he racked up his 20th with a 4-3 win.

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago – The Cubs sent journeyman Cal Koonce out to pitch against Houston rookie Don Bradey – but it was no contest. The Cubs rolled up 23 hits while Koonce survived 4 errors behind him to pitch a complete game while only allowing one run. The Cubs scored 16 times for a 16-1 blowout win – and Houston’s 12th straight loss. Len Gabrielson had the season’s best day with 5 hits and was joined by Billy Williams with 3 RBI’s.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – The Giants finally returned home after a disappointing road trip and took care of some business. Gaylord Perry started and though the Dodgers scored a pair in the first, Tom Haller took over. The slugging lefty catcher ripped a 2-run homerun in the 2nd and a 3-run homerun in the 4th as Perry then went on to win 5-3 with a complete game.

Hi Gary,
Wow what a race in the NL the two leaders better not stumble because the Pirates & Giants are lurking in the weeds. Wondering if the Phillies & Braves will meet again as the season heads down the stretch? This replay is what old school pennant races uses to be like. Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.
J.Q. P.S. I have been taking a summer break but look forward to getting back in the swing here some time soon. Good luck Gary.

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

The Phillies' last home stand of the season is 4 games against Milwaukee. Sept 24 - Sept 27. They are about to head on a long road trip out west - Hou, SF, LA before coming home to CIn just prior to the Mil series. Then they finish up on the road against STL and CIN. Milwaukee has a long home stand coming up against Cin, StL, and Chi. They then go on the road to Pit and Philly before finishing out at home against the Mets and Pittsburgh. Milwaukee has more home games and a bit easier schedule but it all could come down to those 4 games in Philly.

Challengers all lose while Detroit wins.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Thursday, September 10th, 1964

 

D.C. Stadium, Washington, D.C. – The Senators started rookie Pete Craig and the youngster stymied the Orioles all day.  He held them to just 2 runs (1 earned) on only 4 hits and weathered 2 errors behind him for a win. It was a costly loss for Baltimore against the last place Senators. Dave Vineyard got the start and did not pitch badly, only giving up solo shots to Chuck Hinton and Eddie Brinkman. Johnny Orsino pinch hit for him in the 6th and his homerun tied the game at 2-2. That brought in Stu Miller. But Brinkman led off with his 3rd hit of the game, was bunted to second by Craig, and scored on Don Blasingame’s single. Craig then bore down and made that narrow 3-2 lead stand for his first win.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – One reason the Tigers are in first is their deep bench.  Despite playing without Al Kaline, Jerry Lumpe, and Bill Freehan, Detroit calmly disposed of struggling Jim Bouton, scoring 3 in the second inning and another in the 3rd for a good lead. Hank Aguirre started and needed help from Larry Sherry but picked up his 11th win with a 5-2 win over the Yankees.  This was a game that New York desperately needed to win but once again Bouton let them down.  

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – Roman Mejias homered twice off of Jack Kralick as Boston scored early and often – racking up 6 runs by the 5th and knocking Kralick from the game. But that did not matter because Red Sox starter Dave Morehead was even worse as Leon Wagner homered twice and the Indians had 8 runs by the 4th. Sonny Siebert had to appear in the 5th and stayed on for the rest of the game; holding Boston to only 2 more hits and getting a win in the 9-6 Cleveland victory.

 

Metropolitan Stadium, Minneapolis – Mudcat Grant continued to disappoint Minnesota fans though he pitched a complete game today. But the White Sox touched him for 10 hits and managed 4 runs led by Pete Ward’s 2 doubles and Gary Peters’ arm and bat. Peters homered off of Grant to give the White Sox the lead. Peters held that until getting into trouble in the 8th when Hoyt Wilhelm finally provided Chicago some relief and they held on for a 4-3 win.

 

The Angels and A’s were not scheduled.

Phils lose, Braves win and take over first

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Thursday, September 10th, 1964

 

Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia – The real Achilles heel for Philadelphia shows up when their big three – Bunning, Short, and Bennett – are not pitching. Ray Culp started and got the Phils behind the 8-ball right away. Ken Boyer homered in the first and Curt Flood hit a 3-run shot in the second as the Cards ran out to 6-0 lead. Alex Johnson soloed for the Phils against Gordon Richardson but once again Richardson pitched well and stayed on to finish the job with an 8-1 victory. The loss knocked the Phillies out of first, a game behind Milwaukee.

 

Shea Stadium, New York – And what about these Braves?  If you look at who is hot right now, 4 of them are from Milwaukee including veteran Eddie Mathews.  They needed it today as Wade Blasingame was terrible The Mets took a 6-1 lead after 5 innings. Then Lee May drilled a 3-run homerun off of Galen Cisco. Mathews drilled a solo shot in the 7th to cut the lead to 6-5 and then in the 9th he homered again to tie it. In the 11th, Milwaukee completed their come-from-behind victory. It was Mathews getting his 5th hit of the game with 2 outs. Joe Torre sent him to third with a single and Rico Carty singled him home for the lead. Chichi Olivo then held on for the win and sole possession of first place.

 

Forbes Field, Pittsburgh – Even hotter then Milwaukee are the Pirates who won their 9th in their last 10 games. Joe Gibbon pitched well and the Bucs staged a 3-run rally in the 6th to take a 4-3 lead over Cincinnati. Bill Mazeroski drove in a pair of runs to add to his earlier RBI and Gibbon brought Maz home with a sacrifice fly.  Now it was up to Gibbon who stayed on to toss a 6-hitter and get another big win for Pittsburgh. For the sinking Reds, it was their 7th straight 1-run game; 4 of which they have lost.

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago – The Cubs sent rookie John Flavin out to pitch and that was not such a great idea.  The Colts drilled him for 5 runs in the first 3 innings before he was pulled. Houston did not score after that but Bob Bruce and Hal Woodeschick made those 5 runs barely hold up for a 5-4 win.  That ended their 12 game losing streak.  Rookie Joe Morgan led the way with 3 hits while driving in one run and scoring a run.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – The Giants are not out of it yet and today they came from behind to snatch a victory away from Don Drysdale and the Dodgers. Drysdale was starting on 2 days rest but left for a pinch hitter trailing 3-0 after homeruns from Willie Mays and hot Tom Haller. But the pinch hit paid off as the Dodgers scored 5 runs and it looked by Drysdale still might get his 21st victory.  But the L.A. bullpen has been horrible of late. Bob Miller came on and immediately gave up double and a single. Ron Perranoski relieved and immediately gave up two more hits and the Giants had regained the lead already. This time Jim Duffalo came on and did not give the lead back as the Giants went on to win 7-6.  Mays had 3 hits and 3 RBI’s on the day to put him at 100 RBI’s for the season and 46 homeruns.

Hi Gary,
That last series should be a real bare knuckled brawl between the Braves & Phillies. But the Phillies usually have a tough time on the West coast trips. This trip will be huge for them as they continue to move towards the show down with the Braves at the end of the season. There are some teams that are still in it and can make up some ground on the Phillies. Really looking forward to seeing how this stretch to the finish line pans out. Good luck.

NW - I think the Pirates are getting enough offense to offset their average (at best) pitching.  After Bob Veale, it is not much to write home about. They need their hitters (especially Jim Pagliaroni who is probably hitting the most over his head) to keep it up down the stretch. They play the Braves quite a bit (2 series - home and away) over the last few weeks so there is a real chance.

Oops. Tigers stumble against Washington.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Friday, September 11th, 1964

 

Yankee Stadium, New York – Mel Stottlemyre finally had a bad game – or rather a bad inning. Roger Maris had homered off of Camilo Pascual and Stottlemyre nursed a 2-0 lead going into the 7th against the Twins. Then Stottlemyre could not find the plate as he loaded the bases with one out on walks. Zoilo Versalles then doubled and Rich Rollins tripled. Steve Hamilton came out to face Tony Oliva but he singled too. That was the end of the carnage but now the Twins led 5-2. Pete Mikkelsen relieved in the 8th and continued his bad run as the Twins added 3 more runs to win going away at 8-2.  Pascual picked up his 18th win in the process with Johnny Klippstein closing things out.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – The best laid plans… The Tigers were in their easy part of the schedule as Washington came to town. They figured they could pad their lead.  But lefty Frank Kreutzer had other ideas for Washington as he stymied Detroit’s bats, holding them to one run on 6 hits in 6 plus innings. When he got into trouble, Ron Kline relieved and got Bill Bruton to ground into a double play with the bases loaded and Detroit did not threaten again.  Dave Wickersham was again going for his 19th win and did not pitch badly.  In fact he pitched a complete game but John Kennedy and Don Lock burned him for homeruns and the Senators shocked the Tigers 3-1.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – Sam McDowell gave up 2 hits in the first inning as Chicago scored a run. An error in the second coupled with a hit gave Chicago another run. And Sudden Sam then completely shut down the White Sox.  He did not allow another hit through 8 innings of work. But his teammates were clueless while facing Juan Pizarro and so McDowell was pinch hit for in the 8th trailing 2-0. The Indians threatened and Eddie Fisher relieved to continue the shutout as Chicago got a joint shutout win, 2-0 and picked up a game on Detroit.

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – The A’s came to town for a double header and local fans were notching up 2 wins. Milt Pappas started but had his worst game of the season. The A’s scored 3 times in the first and 6 times in the 3rd. Pappas absorbed 7 of those runs while Dave Vineyard ate 2 of them.  So now the Orioles trailed 9-0 after 3. It was 10-1 heading into the bottom of the 6th and Diego Segui seemed fine. But Boog Powell ripped his 47th homerun and then everyone started hitting as the Orioles scored 6 times to make it a close 10-7 game. They added another run in the 7th and one in the 8th but just could not get that last run and fell 10-9. Segui got the win despite giving up 7 runs in 6 innings. The second game was no contest. Rookie Johnny Odom started again for the A’s and was ineffective as Baltimore scored 5 runs over the first 4 innings. They added a 5-run 7th against the bullpen and rolled to a 10-1 win and a split. Wally Bunker started and went the distance for his 15th win – easily tops among all rookie pitchers.

 

Fenway Park, Boston – The Angels came to Boston and quickly scored 3 runs against Bill Monbouquette.  Dean Chance was on the mound for the Halos and you know what that means – game over. And so it was.  Chance only allowed one run to lower his microscopic ERA a bit more to 1.57. His Angels added more against Boston to roll to a 7-1 win.

Braves extend lead as Phillies and Pirates fall.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Friday, September 11th, 1964

 

County Stadium, Milwaukee – The Braves put some distance between themselves and the contenders. Meanwhile, Cincinnati is quickly playing themselves into irrelevancy. Tony Cloninger and Bob Purkey hooked up in quite the pitching duel for 7 innings.  The game was still scoreless going into the bottom of the 8th. Then the Braves put two men on board and red hot Eddie Mathews quickly removed them with his 6th homerun in the last 10 days for a 3-0 lead. The roof quickly fell in as Purkey was relieved by Ryne Duren who immediately gave up 2 more hits and the Braves led 6-0. Cloninger finished out for a 3-hit shutout and his 20th victory of the year. The win coupled with other losses puts the Braves up by 2 games.

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – Nick Willhite got a start as the Dodgers wanted another look at the young lefty who never seems to make the team. He looked better today facing the Mets. He held the Mets to 2 runs over 6 plus innings before leaving things to Jim Brewer. It was a close game but Ron Fairly flexed some muscle and hit a pair of homeruns, driving in all 3 L.A. runs for a 3-2 win.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – In what is supposed to be Pittsburgh’s easy part of the schedule, the Pirates were shell shocked after blowing a lead to the Colts and losing ground on Milwaukee.  Wilbur Wood got a second start and again pitched well. Bill Virdon had a 5-hit day and Roberto Clemente drove in 3 runs to lead the Pirates to a 4-1 lead after 7 innings. When Wood got into trouble in the 8th with 2 men on board, usually reliable Al McBean relieved.  And McBean proceeded to have his worst game of the year as 4 consecutive Colts got hits. Then Frank Bork replaced McBean and finally got one out but gave up a hit and Roy Face replaced Bork and gave up a hit. When the dust had settled, the Colts had scored 7 big runs for a 7-4 lead. Claude Raymond then finished up for Don Larsen who got the win in relief of Dick Farrell.

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago – Rookie Miguel Cuellar started for St. Louis but the Cubs ripped him pretty badly as they scored 6 times in the 5th for a 7-0 lead.  Billy Williams then ripped a 3-run homerun in the 6th off of reliever Ray Sadecki and the Cubs led 10-0.  And since Larry Jackson was pitching, that meant win number 24 was just waiting to happen. In fact, Jackson only lost his shutout in the 9th on a Bill White solo shot but got his 24th with a 10-1 pasting.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – Two contenders battled by the bay and one was going to lose ground against the Braves. And when Orlando Cepeda took Dennis Bennett deep in the first inning for a 3-0 Giants’ lead, it looked like it would be San Francisco keeping pace and Philadelphia losing ground.  The Phillies never recovered against Bob Bolin who struck out 10 and held the Phils to 4 hits – 2 by Richie Allen. S.F. only got one more run against Bennett but that was enough for a 4-1 win. They leapfrogged losing Pittsburgh to take over third place in the tight race.

That collar is getting a little tighter around the Phillies neck. Happy to see Eddie Mathews doing so well. He was a real favorite of mine. As for the A.L., I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Do the Reds still have a chance or is it too late for them?

Hi Gary,
Well the choker appears to be tightening up on the Phillies. I feel like a kid watching them unravel once again like in 64. Like I said before the Phillies always seem to struggle on these West Coast trips. Philly fans have to be saying, "Oh no not again".

Tigers lose again to Senators - but no one takes advantage.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Saturday, September 12th, 1964

 

Yankee Stadium, New York – Al Downing finally tossed a complete game.  Though he gave up 4 runs to Minnesota, he only allowed 4 hits and one of the runs was unearned. But Roger Maris stayed hot as he cranked his 20th homerun of the season and the Yankees put up 7 runs, mostly against Dick Stigman. Clete Boyer had a good game with 3 hits including a double and triple while Bobby Richardson drove in a pair.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – For the second straight day, the Tigers were stunned as the last place Senators once again outplayed them and won a tight 3-1 game. Denny McLain started for Detroit and only gave up 2 runs (one earned) but his offense could do nothing against spot starter Jim Hannan.  When Hannan became tired, Ron Kline came in to finish things off and save the win. The Senators only had 6 hits but they were able to turn them into 3 runs and another win.  Detroit missed a golden opportunity since the next three teams in the standings all lost.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – Leon Wagner bashed two homeruns off of John Buzhardt and even took over the lead in RBI’s as he added 5 to his totals and Cleveland upset the Chicago run for the pennant. Buzhardt was not fooling anyone but Lee Stange was.  Stange turned in his 10th win of the season with help from rookie Ted Abernathy. Wagner’s offense was enough for the Indians to win 6-3.

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – Another contender who thought they would pick on a second division team was Baltimore. But Orlando Pena struck out 11 Orioles and then got help from Johnny Wyatt to keep the Birds off the board and hang on to a 5-2 win.  Steve Barber took the loss. After Barber tossed shutout ball for 5 innings, rookies Bert Campaneris and Tommy Reynolds hit back-to-back homers for a 3-0 lead. The A’s added 2 more in the 6th and went on to the 5-2 win.

 

Fenway Park, Boston – Joe Adcock continued to play like a kid as he belted 2 more homeruns and was joined by Lu Clinton and hot Bob Rodgers as the Angels rolled over the Red Sox 8-2.  Fred Newman went the distance for L.A. and benefitted by the unusual (for Los Angeles) outburst of power while Bob Heffner took the brunt of it for Boston.

Oh those west coast road trips.

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

National League

Saturday, September 12th, 1964

 

County Stadium, Milwaukee – Maybe somebody had better think about beating the Braves sometime soon. The Brave made it 10 out of their last 11 as they erupted for 6 runs in the 3rd inning to drive out Cincy starter Jim Maloney.  That was plenty for Denny Lemaster who went the distance while allowing just 6 hits and 1 run.  Milwaukee never scored after that big inning but they did not have to for a 6-1 victory.

 

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles – John Purdin got a start for Los Angeles after his recent callup and he throttled the Mets.  Purdin only allowed 5 hits while shutting them out in his first major league start.  Tom Parsons faced him and pitched even better. He only allowed 4 hits but Doug Camilli brought home Ron Fairly on a fielder’s choice in the 2nd and that was the deciding run in a 1-0 nailbiter.

 

Colts Stadium, Houston – Pittsburgh got back on the winning track as they stuffed Houston 7-2. However, the game was much closer than that. Don Cardwell got his first Pittsburgh start since early in the spring as he recovered from an injury. But he looked sharp as he took a shutout into the 9th. His Pirate teammates had only scored a pair up until then and only thanks to 4 Houston errors. But Houston starter Ken Johnson was pulled and Claude Raymond walked Bill Virdon and hit Roberto Clemente. An error scored Virdon and Manny Mota (running for the injured Clemente) went to third with Willie Stargell going to second.  Hal Woodeschick then came into the game but he allowed 3 hits and the Pirates racked up 5 runs for a huge 7-0 lead. Cardwell was finally pulled after Dave Roberts tripled home a run with no outs and the final was 7-2 but Pittsburg fans have got to be happy about Cardwell.

 

Wrigley Field, Chicago – Chicago took over 6th place as they rolled over the Cardinals again. Although Bob Buhl gave up 4 homeruns – including 2 to Mike Shannon – they were all solo shots and got nowhere close to the 10 runs that his Cubs scored. Len Gabrielson homered and drove in 4 runs for Chicago as the Cubs feasted on Glen Hobbie and Ray Sadecki.

 

Candlestick Park, San Francisco – Philadelphia fans were worried about this part of the schedule with a long road trip starting out in San Francisco. Their fears were justified as the offense could only score 1 run (for the third straight game) as they faced rookie Ron Herbel. Herbel got his 15th win and went the distance. Willie Mays homered off of Chris Short for the lead and was followed by Orlando Cepeda. Though Short only gave up 4 hits, those two homers plus a Del Crandall triple accounted for 5 runs and a 5-1 win as San Francisco is now only percentage points out of second place and the Phillies have dropped 3 games behind Milwaukee.

The Reds are choking. They have now lost 4 straight and are 8 games back with 20 to play.  I would not bet too much on them.  Your Tigers are starting to look mortal but no one seems to want to challenge them.

Senators sweep Detroit!!!!

POLO GROUNDS GAZETTE

American League

Sunday, September 13th, 1964

 

Yankee Stadium, New York – Whitey Ford started for New York against another lefty, Jim Kaat for Minnesota. Though Minnesota threatened early, they could not score. Of course, New York was not doing much either but they scored in the 3rd after Kaat walked Phil Linz, threw two wild pitches, and Bobby Richardson laced a 2-out base hit. And so it was still 1-0 going into the bottom of the 8th though Al Worthington was now pitching for the Twins. Tony Kubek lined a 2-out single and Tom Tresh got some breathing room for Ford with a towering homerun and a 3-0 lead. That came in handy in the 9th when Harmon Killebrew led off with his 49th homerun of the season. The call went to Pedro Ramos who finished out the game for his first save since joining New York and the Yanks had taken both games of the series from Minnesota.

 

Tiger Stadium, Detroit – And Detroit fans are really getting nervous now.  The last place Senators completed a sweep of Detroit at Tiger Stadium as rookie Don Loun and veteran Steve Ridzik combined to shut them out. Phil Regan started for the Tigers and did not pitch badly but some horrible fielding behind him let Washington take a 2-0 lead. When Washington threatened in the 8th, Larry Sherry relieved but did not help as the Senators went up 4-0. And then it got ugly and the boo birds came out. Washington scored 3 more in the 9th thanks to some even worse fielding to win 7-0 and embarrass the first place Tigers.

 

Municipal Stadium, Cleveland – Two kids faced off as Luis Tiant faced Bruce Howard of the White Sox.  Both pitchers were tough though Cleveland scored in the first on a Fred Whitfield single. And it was still 1-0 going into the bottom of the 8th when a costly error led to 2 unearned runs and the Indians led 3-0.  Tiant lost his shutout in the 9th when Bill Skowron homered but he still won his 9th game, 3-1.

 

Memorial Stadium, Baltimore – It looked like another disaster.  Playing the A’s, the Orioles and Dave McNally had a narrow 3-1 lead going into the 9th. McNally got 2 outs but Nelson Mathews tripled in a run and the call went to Dick Hall.  Bill Bryan pinch hit, singling home Mathews and the Orioles had blown another late lead. It got worse in the 10th when Bert Campaneris singled in a run and the A’s now had the lead, 4-3. With Wes Stock now pitching, Norm Siebern doubled with one out. As Boog Powell strode to the plate as a pinch hitter, manager Mel McGaha went against common wisdom and walked the go ahead run intentionally. Charley Lau then pinch hit and drew a walk to load the bases. Russ Snyder then pinch hit for Jerry Adair and drilled a 2-run single to win it, 5-4.

 

Fenway Park, Boston – Dick Radatz might just have to shut down for the year. Once again the fearsome hurler could not hold a sizeable lead and the Red Sox lost. Earl Wilson had taken a 3-1 lead into the 9th but loaded the bases with one out. Radatz popped out of the bullpen to face Joe Adcock.  His 36th homerun earlier had been Los Angeles’ only run. He drew a walk and it was 3-2.  Lou Clinton followed with a single and the game was tied and the bases were still loaded. Bob Rodgers, who has won several games during the Angels recent winning streak, came through again with a sacrifice fly and Los Angeles had the lead. Dan Osinksi stayed on, held the lead, and got the win in the come-from–behind effort.
