April 14, 1968

Dean Chance pitched a two-hit shutout as the Minnesota Twins remained undefeated with a 2-0 win in a game overshadowed by injuries to Yankees’ Joe Pepitone and Horace Clarke. The continuing impression of general impotence of the Yankees was supported by the shutout, but was completely brought to light with Pepitone’s mishap. Pepitone suffered a

Eddie Mathews hit a pair of home runs, including career home run number 500, as the Detroit Tigers whitewashed the New York Yankees, 11-1.

Street & Smith’s: The Giants are thinking pennant and don’t care who knows it. This is the way one of their top men sees the 1967 picture: “The team that wins the pennant will have to beat us. The Pirates have been strengthened if Wills still can play a little bit. They score runs and

The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the San Francisco Giants, 8-7, in sixteen innings as Giant outfielder Willie Mays passed Jimmie Foxx for second place on baseball’s all-time home run list.

August 30, 1966

The Giants have an underrated bull pen. Of the three top contenders, the Giants pen is less gaudy, but Lindy McDaniel, Frank Linzy, Bill Henry and Bob Priddy have had more than their share of bail-out jobs. First off, the Giants get a lot of complete games from Juan Marichal (24) and Gaylord Perry (10).

For outfielder Cleon Jones, the Mets’ rookie-of-the-year candidate, there’s not only a long major league career ahead, but the possibility of super-stardom as well. So says Wes Westrum, the club’s manager. So also says Sheriff Robinson, one of Westrum’s coaches, who managed the Jones boy on the International League farm in Buffalo last summer. “He’s

The Dodgers and Giants returned from the East Coast to meet for a three game set at Dodger Stadium. This is the second series between the two rivals this season.

May 13, 1966

Willie Mays moved into a deadlock for the all-time National League home run record when he ripped his 511th off New York’s Jack Hamilton at Shea Stadium, May 13. It seems appropriate the mark would come in New York for the Giants slugger, but Mays replied, “I would have liked to hit it in San

Orlando Cepeda had received the starting nod at first base the last two games. It was a familiar yet strange place for Cepeda. He had starred for the Giants for years at the position before a knee injury obliterated his 1965 season. Cepeda had been shipped to left field to make room for Willie McCovey.
