CIN 103 000 020 – 6 11 0
S.F. 030 020 24x – 11 15 1
W-Miller L-Haddix SV-Jones HRS: Lynch, Sauer, Davenport GWRBI-Davenport
The Giants cool off the hot Reds as Stu Miller improves to 14-6 goes 3-for-4 with a double, homer and game-winning single.

MIL 035 002 000 – 10 14 0
L.A. 010 000 000 – 1 3 1
W-Spahn L-Drysdale HRS: Crandall, Gray GWRBI-Logan

MIL 000 000 100 – 1 4 0
L.A. 000 140 00x – 5 3 0
W-Koufax L-Trowbridge GWRBI-Roseboro
Don Drysdale continues a hideous stretch of pitching by dropping his eight in a row and 9 out of 10 in the opener, before Sandy Koufax shocks everyone by whiffing seven, walking only two, and going the distance in the nightcap.

PIT 000 000 100 – 1 7 1
CHI 320 000 04x – 9 14 0
W-Hillman L-Friend HRS: Walls, Long GWRBI-Long
The Cubs pick up a half game by trouncing Bob Friend and the Bucs, Lee Walls with a homer, walk, single, and double in four trips to the plate.

PHI 001 200 031 – 7 12 2
STL 101 000 000 – 2 9 0
W-Sanford L-Mizell GWRBI-Hemus
Atomic scientists have confirmed that a mysterious radiation field preventing the Cardinals from going above the .500 mark does, in fact, exist. How else do you explain Vinegar Bend Mizell losing to Jack Sanford? Or St. Louis leaving 16 men on base, including 12 in the first five innings? How else do you explain the Phillies hitting EIGHT doubles? On the other hand, the Phillies are twice the hitting team the Dodgers were…

CLE 003 500 010 – 9 12 1
NYY 000 310 000 – 4 9 4
W-Mossi L-Turley HR: Slaughter GWRBI-Power
The Yanks play horribly to start their next homestead, and Turley is gone by the 4th. Narleski does his best to blow the Tribe’s 8-0 lead, but Don Mossi pitches four and two third of 2-hit shutout ball to nab the win.

CHX 001 030 100 – 5 10 0
BOS 000 000 000 – 1 8 0
W-Donovan L-Delock HRS: Callison, Wiliams GWRBI-Goodman
Johnny Callison’s three-run clout off Delock helps Chicago pick up a full game, the only contender to take advantage of the Yankee loss.

K.C. 102 000 205 – 10 18 1
BAL 100 003 002 – 6 12 0
W-Gorman L-Johnson HRS: Martyn, Maris, Woodling GWRBI-Martyn
Break up the Athletics! Eighteen hits in tough hitter park Memorial Stadium, as Kansas City continues their odd late run at sixth place.

DET 000 000 100 000 – 1 7 0
WAS 000 000 001 001 – 2 8 0
W-Hyde L-Bunning HR: Zauchin GWRBI-Yost
And Detroit’s evaporating offense shows up yet again, this time against the wretched Russ Kemmerer. Jim Bunning throws a home run ball to Zauchin to tie the game in the 9th, then gives up a double and walk before Morgan comes in to surrender Yost’s game-winning double.
