THE SKINNYS
(only games scheduled)

L.A. 000 102 010 – 4 12 1
MIL 000 000 011 – 2 5 1
W-Drysdale L-Jay HRS: Roseboro, Zimmer, Torre, Aaron GWBI-Roseboro
Don Drysdale’s third quality start in about three months ruins the Braves’ day and puts the Giants back to within three in the loss column. Weirdly, the Dodgers played Milwaukee tough all year, splitting the series 11-11. And now the Giants come to town for one game tomorrow, with Warren Spahn facing Mike McCormick. You can say this is big.

STL 101 000 110 – 4 10 4
PHI 104 300 01x – 9 13 2
W-Sanford L-Mizell SV-Farrell HR: Bowman
The Cards put themselves out of their own misery, comitting four infield errors, three of them in two innings leading to four unearned runs, and the dark cloud of elimination has blanketed all of Missouri. Bob Bowman goes 3-for-5 with five RBIs for Philly, who manhandles St. Louis 14-8 in the season series. Still, the Cards will have a lot to say about this race. They have two games left with the Braves and six with the Giants.

TEAM RUN DIFFERENTIALS!
