Minnie Minoso had 2 base hits and 2 RBI as the Peoria Chiefs defeated the

pitiful Carolina Grays in 14 innings by the score of 7 to 6 at Seals

Stadium.

 

The game was deadlocked at 6 after nine full innings.  Peoria ended up winning

it in the 14th inning.  Willie Mays doubled.  Don Hoak next to the plate and

he laid down a sacrifice bunt.  Norm Siebern then stroked a one-base hit

scoring the run.  A wild affair, this game saw the lead change 6 times.

 

Ryne Duren(3-1) was the winner allowing 1 run in 5 innings. Roy Face gained

credit for his 9th save.  Russ Kemmerer(1-5) was the losing pitcher in

relief.  He pitched 2 innings giving up 3 hits and no walks.

Willie Mays hit for the cycle and had 7 RBI at Municipal Stadium where the

Peoria Chiefs beat the Kansas City Athletics by the score of 21 to 15.

 

Mays enjoyed a great day at the plate.  He cracked a two-run shot in the 1st

inning, doubled scoring two baserunners in the 2nd inning, tripled bringing

in two baserunners in the 5th inning, ripping a solo home run (his 22nd of

the season) in the 6th inning and stroked a one-base hit in the 9th inning.

Peoria provided plenty of action in the 2nd inning when they had 5 runs on 6

hits and the 5th inning with 4 runs on 5 hits.  The Peoria offense poured it

on, scoring in 7 of the 9 innings. 

 

Gene Conley(9-4) allowed 1 run in 5 and 1/3 innings, and picked up the

victory. Roy Face was credited with his 8th save.  The loss was charged to

Chuck Stobbs(6-3) in relief.  He was hit hard and gave up 9 hits and 2 walks

in 3 innings. 

 

Mays was jubilant after the game 'Let me see a box-score' he joked, 'I want to

see how that game looks on paper.'

Charlie Maxwell went yard and had 3 RBI at Municipal Stadium where the

sizzling Peoria Chiefs beat the Kansas City Athletics by the score of 14 to

10.

 

Peoria had 11 runs cross the plate in the top of the 7th inning with the help

of 11 hits.  The highlight belonged to Willie Mays who deflated the spirits

of the home town crowd when he smashed a two-run homer (his 11th of the

season).  Peoria out-hit Kansas City for the game, 18 hits to 15. 

 

The victory was credited to Gene Conley(7-3) who went 4 and 1/3 innings,

allowing 5 runs. Gary Bell(8-4) was given the loss.  He got hit pretty hard,

allowing 9 hits and 2 walks in 6 and 1/3 innings. 

 

With the win, Peoria continued their winning ways; their streak now stands at

8 games and counting.

WEB GEMS- Top 9th: George Altman robbed Charlie Maxwell of an extra base hit.

 

Center fielder Willie Mays had 4 hits and 4 RBI as the Peoria Chiefs outscored

the Oneonta Tigers 12 to 10.

 

Mays provided much of the offense.  He lashed a single bringing in a run in

the 1st inning, cracked a two-run shot (his 6th of the season) in the 3rd

inning, doubled knocking in a run in the 5th inning and doubled in the 7th

inning.  Due to a poorly pitched ballgame, scoring in 5 different innings was

still not enough for Oneonta to come away with the victory. 

 

Roy Face(3-2) picked up the victory, allowing no runs in 2 innings. Mike

McCormick(6-4) was tagged with the loss.  He got hit pretty hard, allowing 8

hits and 4 walks in 4 and 2/3 innings. 

 

With this win, Peoria has a division leading 38-20 record.  They have been 7-3

lately.  Still in a bad slump, with this loss, Oneonta is 2-8 lately and

25-33 on the year.

Willie McCovey blasted a grand slam as the Wilmington Hornets defeated the

Oneonta Tigers in 15 innings 10 to 6 at Briggs Stadium.

 

Both teams were tied at 5 runs apiece after nine innings.  Finally, Wilmington

pulled the game out in the 15th inning.  The key offensive moment was

provided by McCovey who silenced the crowd when he cleared the bases with a

Grand Slam homerun (his 7th of the season).  It was roller coaster of a game

as the lead change hands 5 times. 

 

Bobby Shantz(2-0) got credit for the victory, pitching 4 innings and allowing

1 run. Paul Foytack(0-1) was the loser in relief.  He was the victim of a

defensive lapse and did not allow an earned run in the game.

History was made in Potomac as Robin Roberts(3-1) tossed a no-hitter and the

Potomac Fighting Dems defeated the Kansas City Athletics by the score of 5 to

0.

 

Roberts had an evening to remember.  Heck, it's one we'll all remember! What a

game at Griffith Stadium! He walked 3 Kansas City batters.  What an evening

for the fans.  They were on the edge of their seats from the 7th inning on.

With every out, the electricity in the air mounted.  Potomac totaled 10 on

the night. 

 

Jim Owens(4-1) was given the loss.  He gave up 5 runs and 10 hits in 7

innings.  'You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than this

happening,' said Roberts, 'I don't expect it to sink in for awhile,' he said.

'I'm numb right now, I'm overwhelmed.'

Larry Jackson came through with a solid 8 innings at Yankee Stadium as the

Peoria Chiefs beat the Carolina Grays by the count of 1 to 0.

 

The game was decided in the bottom of the 8th inning.  After an out was

recorded, Norm Siebern lofted a solo-blast 'downtown' (his 1st of the

season).  Carolina had a chance to come back in the 9th but they came up

short. 

 

The victory was credited to Jackson(1-0) who went 8 innings, allowing no runs.

Ryne Duren got the save, his 2nd.  Milt Pappas(0-1) was given the loss.  He

gave up just 1 run and 1 hit in 8 innings. 

 

'Just one or two mistakes were all it took to beat us today' Raymond Grasing

said.  'We take these games one day at a time, but this one was hard to

take.'
