THE SKINNYS (travel day for N.L.)

NYY 010 011 122 – 8 13 1
K.C. 000 010 020 – 3 7 1
W-Ford L-Urban HRS: Mantle, Berra, Skowron GWRBI-Mantle
And Cy Young shoo-in Whitey Ford improves to 16-3, as the Yanks are on either on base or over the wall all day against Jack Urban and Bud Daley.

BOS 001 100 000 – 2 8 0
DET 400 000 01x – 5 8 1
W-Hoeft L-Monboquette HRS: Gernert, Zernial GWRBI-Wilson
Monbo gives up four in the 1st, and it’s all the .500-again Tigers need. Dick Gernert and Gus Zernial with matching immobile lug homers.

WAS 000 700 101 – 9 14 0
CHX 000 000 001 – 1 5 2
W-Pascual L-Wynn HRS: Zauchin, Phillips GWRBI-Lemon
Wow. No pitcher’s been crappier lately than Early Wynn, who allows nine straight baserunners in the Senators’ massive 4th. Pascual is one out away from a CG shutout when Bubba puts one in the seats.

Those newfangled PENNANT RACE CHARTS from the American and National Leagues are back! Dig Washington’s first winning week of the season, and the Giants’ quick rise from obscurity.
