THE SKINNYS
(only games scheduled)

MIL 000 012 000 – 3 7 0
PIT 100 000 010 – 2 7 1
W-Jay L-Witt GWRBI-Crandall
Bucs blow a glorious opportunity here, as Frank Thomas triples to lead off the last of the 9th, but Joey Jay gets Hall and Virdon on grounders and whiffs Mazeroski for the huge CG win. Idle Giants and Cubs fall two and a half back.

CIN 010 000 003 000 01 – 5 14 4
PHI 013 000 000 000 02 – 6 16 1
W-Meyer L-Kellner HRS-Dropo-2 GWRBI-Hemus
Reds nearly pull off another miracle, scoring three times in the 9th and one in the 14th on Dropo’s second homer, only to have the pesky Phils score two in the last of the 14th, winning on a Solly Hemus sac fly. Frank Robinson, on a rare bad day, goes 0-for-7.

BAL 100 150 000 – 7 10 1
NYY 010 010 000 – 2 8 1
W-Loes L-Ford HRS: Triandos, Mantle GWRBI-Robinson
Whitey drops to 17-5 as Triandos caps a big Birds 5th inning with a 3-run homer, his third in two days. It’s made possible after Ford boots a two-out dribbler to the mound, and the Loes/Wilhelm duo pitch four and two-third of 2-hit relief.

BOS 020 010 200 -5 12 0
WAS 000 100 000 – 1 4 0
W-Delock L-Romonosky GWRBI-Runnels
It takes them a while but the Sox finally stops leaving people on base and plate a few more. Ike Delock with da great peformance, and Teddy Ballgame is back up to .408.

K.C. 000 510 020 – 8 11 0
DET 113 000 010 – 6 11 0
W-Herbert L-Moford HRS: Simpson, House, Groth, Maxwell Zernial, Kaline GWRBI-Cerv
In a home run derby at Michigan and Trumbull, the A’s outlast the Tigers after Herbert is creamed for the first three innings.

CHI 000 000 140 – 5 11 1
CLE 100 050 10x – 7 9 0
W-Woodeshick L-Wynn SV-Martin HRS: Landis, Wertz GWRBI-Wertz
Nice Tribe recovery from their awful Sunday, except for the fact that Rocky Colavito gets hit and knocked out of action for seven games. Early Wynn has been so bad in the last two months it’s staggering, giving up a Wertz grand slam in the 5th here to ice it. Remind me to dig up numbers on his last ten or so starts. you won’t believe it.
