34 Cards split a pair with 69 Cubs

Game 1

 123   456   789   FHE
34 Cards (24-31)000200010370
69 Cubs (20-35)00500010x6111

     The Cubs took the first game behind Selma's complete game 7 hitter. Hundley provided most of the offense with a grand slam in the third inning. Hallahan took the loss, going 7 frames.

     All 3 St. Louis runs came via the long ball; Medwick a 2 run shot and R. Collins a solo blow.

     Both teams came out swinging, putting up some crooked numbers early, but when the dust cleared, the Cards held on for a 10-8 victory. Jenkins and Walker were the starters, going 7 and 6 innings respectively, with neither receiving the decision.

     Jenkins started the eighth inning with an 8-5 lead. Whitehead and Delancey each singled to start the inning and Jenkins was pulled in favor of Abernathy. Bad move! Martin whiffed, but Frisch lashed a rbi single. A walk to Simmons filled the sacks for R. Collins. Rip delivered a 2 run single to tie the score. Medwick then rapped a base hit to give St. Louis the lead.

     Haines tossed 3 scoreless innings for the win, but not without some ninth inning drama. With a runner on base and 2 outs, B. Williams drilled a shot off the wall(HR 1-6, 2B 7-20, 9 rolled) Sosa was reired for the final out.

62 Giants sweep a trio of 1 run games from 61 Reds

Game 1

 123   456   789   101112   FHE
61 Reds (24-29)000000010000160
62 Giants (29-29)001000000001281

     Hiller's 2 out single in the bottom of the 12th gave the Giants a victory in game 1. Sanford started for the Giants, going 8 innings, allowing only a 2 out, pinch hit home run by Lynch. Sutter pitched the final 4 frames to earn the win. Jay also tossed a fine game for the Reds, hurling 7 innings, allowing a home run to Bailey in the third. Henry and Brosnan pitched in relief, with Brosnan taking the loss.

     F. Alou led off the 12th with a single. McCovey followed with a double, putting the winning run at third with no outs. Davenport grounded out, as the runners held. Bailey then hit a ground ball and Alou was nailed at the plate for the second out. Matty Alou came off the bench to bat for Sutter and drew a walk, loading the bases with 2 outs. Hiller then delivered his game winning hit.

     The Giants hit 3 solo home runs to back G. Perry's pitching effort. Perry, making his first start of the season, went 7 2/3 innings for the victory. S. Miller relieved, and notched his first save of the year. K. Johnson went all the way for the Reds, taking the loss.

     Mays, F. Alou, and Haller went deep for San Francisco, while Freese homered for the Reds. K. Johnson drove home the other run with a single.

     Another outstanding pitching effort from both teams, as O'Dell went all the way for the win. Purkey took the loss, also going the distance. Davenport scored both Giants' runs. He walked in the second and scored on Haller's triple. In the fourth inning, he doubled and scored on Pagan's single.

     Post homered for the Reds only run.

That's what I like to see, the Giants bringing the broom to Candlestick. Also, there was some fine pitching on by both team in that series.

53 Dodgers and 79 Pirates split 4 game series

Game 1

 123   456   789   FHE
53 Dodgers (34-19)0000010012100
79 Pirates (27-27)00300000x380

     Struggling with a 2-8 record, Blyleven picked a good time to hurl one of his best games of the year, going 8 1/3 innings for the win. Tekulve got the last 2 outs for the save. Meyer took the loss, tossing 6 innings.

     Pittsburgh scored all their runs in the third inning. Moreno tripled and Foli brought him home with a base hit. Parker drew a walk and Stargell plated the second run with a single, also advancing Parker to third. A sac fly by B. Robinson rounded out the scoring.

     Brooklyn got one run back in the sixth inning when Hodges singled home J. Robinson.

     Blyleven started the ninth by walking Morgan. Belardi flew out, pinch hitting for Milliken. Gilliam laced a single, moving Morgan to third. Tekulve was summoned from the pen to relieve Blyleven. Reese singled, driving home Morgan. J. Robinson, with 3 hits already, now stepped to the plate. Tekulve got him to hit into a 4-6-3 DP, ending the game.

53 Dodgers (34-20)000002000270
79 Pirates (28-27)000000000030

     The Pirates had no solution for Doc Gooden. Gooden went the distance, tossing his third shut out of the season. Bibby also turned in a fine game, pitching 7 innings, but took the loss.

     Bibby matched zeroes with Gooden until the sixth inning. Reese led off with a double, followed by a walk to J. Robinson. Snider then blasted a ball off the wall, scoring Reese, but Moreno's throw cut down Robinson at the plate. Campanella stroked a single to score Snider. That would be all the scoring in the game, and more than enough for Gooden.

     The Dodgers scored three times in the first inning and never looked back, as Erskine followed Gooden's complete game with one of his own. Candelaria tossed 6 innings in a losing effort.

     The game was still close until the ninth inning when the Dodgers score 3 runs without a hit. Romo walked 4 batters and Milner committed an error as Brooklyn put the game away.

 53 Dodgers (36-20)     2.....7.....1

 79 Pirates (28-29)       5.....10....0

     The Pirates turned to their ace, Guidry for the series finale, and Gator did not disappoint. Guidry went 8 2/3 innings before tiring. Teke got the final out for his 7th save. Loes worked 6 innings, allowing 2 runs, taking the loss. Labine was ineffective in his 2 innings of work.

     Garner led the way for Pittsburgh, rapping a double and a home run, scoring twice and driving home a pair.

     Guidry took a 5-1 lead into the ninth. Furillo started the inning by getting plunked. Morgan drew a walk. Cox batted for Labine and lined out. Gilliam whiffed for out number 2. Reese lined a rbi single and that was all for Guidry. Tekulve came into the contest, once again facing J. Robinson. Robinson flew out to end the game, giving Pittsburgh a split of the series.

34 Cards break out the brooms; sweep the 24 Senators 3 games

Game 1

 123   456   789   FHE
34 Cards (25-32)0000213006100
24 Senators (35-23)0030100004112

     The Cards used errors by Harris and Wilson to score 4 unearned runs off of Mogridge in this game. Carleton muddled through all 9 innings for a complete game victory. Mogridge was lifted after 7 innings, taking the loss.

     S. Davis ripped a double and a 2 run homer for the Cards, and Medwick and Simmons had a rbi each.

     Wilson slammed his 24th home run of the year for Washington.

34 Cards (25-32)000100013563
24 Senators (35-24)000000030362

     Unfortunately errors marred this match up between D.Dean and W. Johnson. Seven of the eight runs were unearned, as St. Louis once again prevailed. Dean was the winner, going 8 innings. Marberry was tagged with the loss in relief of Johnson.

     With the Cards up 2-0 going into the bottom of the eighth, Johnson was pulled for a pinch hitter. McNeely popped out to start the inning. Rice reached on an error by Durocher, but Harris flew out for the second out. Goslin bounced to Durocher, who booted his second chance of the inning. Now Wilson stepped to the plate with a chance to put his team ahead. Hack did just that, belting a 3 run homer, giving Washington the lead. Diz then allowed a walk to Judge and a single to Ruel before whiffing Peckinpaugh to end the inning.

     Marberry replaced Johnson on the mound. R. Collins walked to start the ninth. After Medwick flew out, Davis drew a walk. Rothrock the lofted a fly ball to left field that Goslin butchered for a 2 base error, allowing the Cards to knot the score. Durocher dribbled back to the mound for the second out. Dean was lifted in favor of Orsatti. It proved to be a great move, as Orsatti drilled a 2 run single. Martin flew out, ending the inning. Haines came into the game and tossed a perfect ninth inning to earn the save.

When you have Walter Johnson pitching in a series you don't expect to be swept.

A shame, particularly since they had just rallied, to put Walter in a position to get the win.

Still, Johnson vs. Dizzy Dean was a great matchup.

 I'll second that! His first 2 starts of the year weren't very good, but he'd been pitching a lot better since. That was just one very sloppy gameno

 Until the Cards scored the second run in the eighth, I was really thinking of leaving Johnson in the game. He is a good hitting pitcher, but down 2 runs I felt it best to pinch hit

38 Yanks starting to make noise; take 2 of 3 from 61 Reds

Game 1

 123   456   789   FHE
38 Yanks (34-26)013000000480
61 Reds (24-32)000000000041

     After consecutive bad outings, Ruffing returned to form, blanking the Reds on 4 hits. O'Toole also pitched a complete game, taking the loss.

     Ruffing helped himself at the plate, knocking in the game's first run with a 2 out double. Dickey hit a 3 run homer in the third inning to round out the scoring.

Ruffing W(10-3)9IP4H1W5K0ERSO(4)

38 Yanks (35-26)21600000312152
61 Reds (24-33)01260000211112

     New York got a fast start in the game, but had to score late, then hold off Cincy for the win. Ruth's grand slam capped the Yanks' 6 run third inning. It looked like New York would cruise to victory, not so fast!

Aided by a pair of Yankee errors, the Reds would score 8 unearned runs off Gomez, culminating with a grand slam by Bench! The Reds's backstop had a monster game, rapping a double and a pair of homers, while driving home 8 runs.

     Cincy's unsung hero of the game was relief pitcher Sherman Jones, who took over for Jay after 3 innings. Jones worked 5 scoreless frames, giving the Reds the chance to win.

     Now we move to the ninth inning with Henry on in relief of Jones. Ruth drew a lead off walk. After striking out Gehrig, Dickey and Henrich each singled to load the bases. Knickerbocker popped out for the second out, and Hoag was sent to the plate to hit for Andrews. Henry hit Hoag, forcing home the go ahead run. Crosetti then doubled home a pair of runs before Rolfe whiffed to end the inning.

     Sundra was on in relief of Andrews. Kasko greeted the new Yankee hurler with a single. F. Robinson flew out. Bench stepped to the plate and clouted his second home run of the game. Freese drew a walk, bringing the potential winning run to the plate. Sundra reached back for a little extra, striking out both Post and Coleman to end the game.

     The Reds took the series finale in another wild game. Maloney went 7+ innings for the Reds, getting a no decision. Brosnan went the final 2 frames for the win. Pearson went the distance for New York and suffered the set back.

     Once again the balls were flying out of the ballpark, as New York belted 4 round trippers and Cincy swatted 3.

     Up by 2 runs, Maloney started the eighth inning. When Ruth led off with a home run, Maloney was pulled in favor of Brosnan. One out later, Dickey connected for his second home run of the game, knotting the score at 5.

     In the bottom of the eighth, Post walked with 1 out. Pinson flew out, but Kasko singled, bringing up F. Robinson. Robby lined his second double of the game, scoring Post. Bench grounded out to end the inning.

     In the ninth inning, Brosnan allowed a 1 out single to Rolfe, then retired Dimaggio and Ruth, ending the game.

There are a few (Bob Lemon would be another obvious choice), where it's really hard to take them out for a pinch hitter, even late and behind in a game.  Lemon can be so good that he is the best choice to hit.

But it just seems weird to take the guy out as the pitcher, and still let him hit in that situation.  I know IRL you have all that effort expended on the mound.  But that doesn't translate into batting performance in the game.  He may have just thrown 30-35 pitches (or more) that inning, but there is no dot next to his hitting stats.
