And on his eighth game, Bob Gibson lost. In the first inning at Connie Mack Stadium before a crowd of 17,034, Johnny Callison hit a two-out home run into the left center field bleachers against Cardinal starter Bob Gibson (7-1).

Two statements Manager Gene Mauch made during spring training about his Phillies seemed to assure rookie Gary Sutherland another season with the club’s top farm team in San Diego.

Wes Westrum can hardly be blamed if he’s stumping for Cleon Jones as Rookie of the Year.
