A wild one in Washington between the Yankees & Senators. The Yankees started things off in the first with a 4-run splash that included back-to-back HR's by Joe Collins. Yogi Berra would hit a 2-run double in the second, as the Yankees got off to a 7-0 start entering the bottom of the 2nd. Joe Judge got walked, Whitey Ford then plunked Muddy Ruel, and then walked the bases loaded -- putting Bucky Harris on. The Senators  down 7-0 decided that they would pinch-hit for the pitcher in Harry Severeid, Severeid was hit a 3-run triple -- which would lead to a 5-run bottom of the 2nd. The Yankees would score two in the 5th, which the Senators answered back in the bottom-half & tied the game at 9-9. The Senators would take the lead 10-9 in the 6th, until Joe Collins hit his 2nd HR of the day (5 RBI). The Yankees would hold on and win 13-10!

32 Total hits & 10 walks between the two teams.

LP- Seaver (1-2)

Christy Mathewson's bid for a no-hitter was broken up, 2 outs into the bottom of the 8th by pinch-hitter Ed Kranepool's solo Homerun. The game lived up to it's small-ball billing, with two aces on the mound (The Mets' Tom Seaver pitched a valiant effort, of allowing 1 ER & four hits, plus 6 strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings.

It seems that the Giants have lost their groove when Robby Thompson went on the DL, with the Giants now losing their 6th consecutive game. Jack Morris pitched 8 shutout innings with 4 K's, while only allowing two hits & a walk. Chet Lemon went 2-for-4, triple, HR & 3 RBI, as Darrell Evans hits his first HR (two-run HR) of the season, adding a single in four AB's.

Lefty Grove had his best outing of the season, yet it wasn't enough as the Athletics lose (All three of the Athletics' losses came when Grove has pitched). Mort Cooper pitched 8 shutout innings, before the Cards' shaky bullpen once again made it an adventure... as Philly left the tying run on third base.
