Larry Jaster, who no-hit the Dodgers in 1966, got the nod from manager Red Schoendienst for the first time this season as the first place Cardinals and second place Dodgers met in an early National League showdown. The Dodgers take the opening, powering past Cardinals, 4-1. Willie Davis belted a two-run homer in the seventh

April 24, 1968

The Detroit Tigers fell to the Cleveland Indians, 5-1, and as part of a disastrous four run Cleveland eighth inning, lost the services of slugger Willie Horton for some time.

The Chicago Cubs scored seven runs in the eighth inning off a normally reliable San Francisco Giants to lift the Cubs to a 7-4 victory before a raucous crowd of 29,079 fans at Wrigley Field.

May 21, 1967

The Cubs yesterday again spun their first division wheel of fortune. The lucky number stopped on “George Altman” and the lanky 34-year-old outfielder will be in uniform in time to pinch hit in today’s doubleheader against the Dodgers. The recall of the southpaw swinger from their Tacoma farm club was another of many recent moves

Outfielder Ted Savage was so angry at being dropped from the Cardinal varsity at the May 10 deadline that he smashed his ukulele in the visitors’ clubhouse at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. But Savage was happier later when he wound up with the Cubs. “If nobody wants you, what’s the use of going back to

Street & Smith’s: With Sandy Koufax gone, the Cardinals were crowing in April that they owned the best pitching staff in the league. It was a legitimate boast on the basis of 1966 figures. The sixth place Cardinals, who won only four more games than they lost, got that far only because of a superlative

* Pete Rose was an unimpressive-appearing 150-pounder when he first signed with the Reds after playing sandlot baseball in Cincinnati and in nearby Dayton, O. And, because of his size, the Reds did not have much competition for his signature on a contract. Red scouts Buzz Boyle, Cliff Polking, and Buddy Bloebaum overlooked Rose’s size.
