 Only 3 games in but right now the Giants and the Cubs are fun to play. The Giants took 2 of 3 from a Brooklyn team that I thought would sweep them. And the Cubs just were amazing in the series vs the Pirates, some great pitching and timely hitting. The Dodgers, the team I really thought would be exciting, are off to a slow start and can't seem to get it going.

Friday - April 22nd 1949
Chicago Cubs @ St. Louis Cardinals
The Cubs and the Cardinals hooked up for a wild finish at Sportsman's Park this afternoon. The Cubs seemed to be in control and cruising with a 5-2 lead at the stretch. But in the bottom of the 7th frame the Cards got a 2-run shot from Musial to pull within 1. In the 8th they tied it thanks to a Cubs error and a sac fly from Marty Marion. In the top of the 10th the Cubs scored 1 to make it 6-5 but their bullpen faltered allowing a HR to Joe Garogiola who had come into the came as part of a double switch.
The Cardinals put the game away in the 11th, loading the bases before Red Schoendienst lashed a 3-run triple for the win. The Cardinals were out of position players at this point which would have made things interesting had the game gone on.

I'm not sure why...but they don't really "click" for me, either.

Of course, it's just been four games.

But that pitching... disbelief

I can hardly wait for Newk to arrive.

I sometimes wonder if games like this can really capture the 'intangibles' that a make the difference. Reading Halberstam's book you got a sense that the Yankees had a mystique about them that almost won ballgames for them, same with the Dodgers, or Red Sox maybe. Like teams going into The Stadium were already half-beaten before the first pitch. Or those 'special' teams could almost summon up an extra layer of talent at will when they needed a hit or an out. Not sure if you can capture that with raw data & dice.

Newk makes his first start May 22nd, just a month from now!

Friday - April 22nd 1949

Cincinnati Reds @ Pittsburgh Pirates
The Reds upended the Pirates 3-1 today in Pittsburgh. The game was tied 1-1 through the first 8, a pitchers duel despite the 17 hits (Pirates hit into 4 double plays, the Red hit into 2, plus a couple of base running errors for both teams). In the top of the 9th though things came off the rails as Bob Chesnes gave up back-to-back HR to Kluszweski and Bloodworth for a 3-1 Reds lead. Howie Fox held the Pirates in the 9th to notch a CG victory giving up only 1 unearned run.

LP: Chesnes (PIT)

Boston Braves @ New York Giants
Johnny Sain started for Boston this afternoon and had another rocky outing surrendering 15 hits and 5 runs in just 6 innings (last start was vs Philly - 10 hits & 3 runs in 7IP). Larry Jansen was not much better for NY giving up 5 hits and 6 walks for 3 runs over 7. Boston also committed 3 errors, including 2 2-base errors in the 7th that led to 2 Giant runs. New York collected 21 hits in the game, including solo HRs from Mize & Thompson, for a 10-4 win. The game was interesting in that there was scoring in every inning by at least one team, but never both teams in the same inning.
According to baseballreference.com the real game ended in a 9-inning 6-6 tie but doesn't mention why, rain I suppose, but there was also no mention of a makeup.

Saturday - April 23rd 1949
Chicago Cubs @ St. Louis Cardinals
Cardinal's pitcher Red Munger was in control for 7 solid innings this afternoon - but in the 8th the wheels came off the bus. Harry Walker led off the 8th with a ground ball to short and that was the last thing that went right for Red in the inning. From there it was Walk, Single, Walk, Salami (Scheffing) to put the Cubbies up 5-3. Dewey Adkins got the win for the Cubs despite allowing 3 runs on 11 hits and 4 walks, he also got 8 Ks - Cal McLish got the save.
WP: Adkins (CHI)
LP: Munger (STL)
SV: McLish

Brooklyn Dodgers @ Philadelphia Phillies
They sang the National Anthem at 1:35 in Shibe Park today and that was the last thing Phillies' fans got to cheer. This was Robin Roberts first start and the Phillies' home opener so excitement was high in the City of Brotherly Love. That was dashed as Roberts was in the shower by the 3rd inning after giving up 6 runs on 7 hits, 2 walks - Brooklyn up 6-0 after 3.

Then things got bad.


Brooklyn added 2 in the 4th,
batted around for 3 in the 5th,
scored 4 more runs in the 6th,
batted around again in the 7th for 4 runs,
added 2 runs in the 8th,
and got 1 more in the 9th for good measure.
Brooklyn scored in every inning - a total of 22 runs. 22 hits - 9 walks - 2 hit batters - 3 Philly errors. Brooklyn got HRs from Gene Hermanski (solo), Billy Cox (2RBI), and Carl Furillo (solo).

------1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9  R  H E
BKN - 3 1 2 2 3 4 4 2 1 22 22 0
PHL - 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0  0  6 3

It was a bloodbath and it could have been worse as the Dodgers stranded 11 base runners.

Hermanski  2-4 3 RBI (HR - W - HB)
Reese      3-7 2 RBI
Snider     3-4 4 RBI (2 2B - 2W - HB)
Robinson   1-5 1 RBI (2W)
Furillo    4-7 1 RBI (HR)
Cox        4-5 6 RBI (HR - 2B - W)
Hodges     1-3 1 RBI (2B - W)
Campanella 2-5 2 RBI (W)
Barney     2-6 2 RBI

In all the games I have played.....37,000 or so..........I still have not had a team score in all NINE innings.........I have had a few occasions where a team has scored in EIGHT HOME INNINGS and won the game (therefore no 9th inning).

It was unreal - no matter how bad the column looked, batter or pitcher card- 10 bad vs 1 good result - the Dodgers were hitting the 1 good. I was looking in the manual for a mercy rule around the 6th inning.If the Dodgers hadn't hit into 2 double-plays they might have scored 30.

Heck I even swapped out the dice around the 5th inning to try and stop the bleeding. Amazing, I may frame the score sheet.

My highest-scoring contest was this one, from my 1924 replay (I'll save posting the box score here).

Yes, that's right: 37 runs in eight innings for New York, despite the fact that the Yankees failed to score in two of the innings they did come to bat (the 5th and 6th).

Babe Ruth connected for my first-ever four-homer game and set a house record with his 10 RBI.  Hendrick pinch-ran for Ruth after the Babe singled in the seventh.  I figured it would be his last trip to the plate, given that they likely wouldn't hit in the ninth.

Not only did Hendrick score, but the lineup turned over and he also batted later in the inning, then drove in two runs with a base hit when he came up again in the eighth!

Joe Dugan banged out six hits, reached base on an error, and scored all seven times.

It was supposed to be the first game of a doubleheader.  My "mercy rule" that day was that the umps rescheduled the second game for a later date (maybe it was getting dark).

Johnny Mostil finished the eighth for Chicago, and would have gone on, had he not been knocked around so much.  Instead, Doug McWeeny pitched the eighth.  He was originally supposed to be the second game starter.

Imagine being the Yankee starter (Cliff Markle), on the day your club scores 37 runs...and you get a no decision, because you can't make it through four innings. doh

 Wow - 37 and they didn't score in 2 innings? Ruth's numbers were amazing, it's funny what the dice can do. I'll have to post this Dodger's game over on that other thread later today.

Saturday - April 23rd 1949

Boston Braves @ New York Giants
The Giants continue their hot start coming back for an 8-7 win vs the Boston Braves. Holding a 5-2 lead going into the 8th the Giants found themselves down 6-5 at the half inning as the Braves scored with 3 doubles and a HR. The Giants got 2 back in the bottom of the inning to go up 7-6 thanks to a Braves error. In the 9th the Braves tied it with a pinch hit triple by Del Crandall and a sac fly by Eddie Stanky. Finally in the bottom of the 9th the Giants put the game away thanks to another Braves error and 2 singles.

Sunday - April 24th 1949
Cincinnati Reds @ Pittsburgh Pirates (Game 1)
The Reds topped Pittsburgh 6-4 in game 1 of this Sunday doubleheader. Both teams scored 2 in the first but then Herm Wehmeier settled down and kept the Pirates off the scoreboard for the next 6. Wehmeier allowed only 1 hit and 5 walks over 7 innings - the hit being a 2-run HR to Ralph Kiner. The Red’s bullpen stumbled in the 8th allowing 2 runs to allow the Pirates to get back into it. Jess Dobernic came on to pitch the 9th and get the save for Cincinnati. Elmer Riddle took the loss giving up 5 runs on 8 hits over 7.

Cincinnati Reds @ Pittsburgh Pirates (Game 2)
Game 2 stood at 7-6 Pittsburgh after 3 innings of play as the ball was jumping in Forbes Field in the late afternoon. Cincinnati jumped out to a 4 run lead in the top of the first thanks to 2 Pirate errors and a grand slam by Jimmy Bloodworth. Pittsburgh answered with a 2 run shot in by Wally Westlak in the bottom of the frame. Clyde McCullough added a solo shot for Pitt in the bottom of the 2nd, and the Pirates scored 4 in the 3rd on a hit batter, error, 3 singles and a sac fly.
In the 7th Westlake struck for another HR (solo) to make it 8-6 Pittsburgh. Then the Pirates bullpen fell apart allowing 9 runs in the last 2 innings including 2 3-run and 1 solo home runs (Mueller & Hatton each with a three and Sauer with a solo). The Pirates rallied for 3 in the last of the 9th but came up short at 15-11 giving the Reds the sweep.

Boston Braves @ New York Giants
Boston rode the long ball to beat the Giants 4-2 at the Polo Grounds today. Boston got solo home runs from Tommy Holmes, Pete Reiser, and Bill Salked to back starter Vern Bickford’s 3 hit 7 inning outing, Bickford gave up 8 walks but only 2 runs before turning it over to the bullpen for the win.

LP: Jones (NYG)
SV: Barrett

St Louis Cardinals @ Chicago Cubs
The Cardinals unloaded for 20 hits and 9 walks en route to a 16-7 drubbing of the hometown Cubbies. The Cards scored runs in bunches including a 6-run 5th when they sent 11 men to the plate. Every Cardinal starter had at least 1 hit except for Ed Sauer who had an 0-fer with 3 Ks and hit into a double play. The Cardinals used small ball - 17 of their hits were singles, 3 were doubles. The Cubs got 17 hits of their own but hit into 4 double plays to kill their scoring chances.
WP: Hearn (STL)
LP: Adkins (CHI)

Brooklyn Dodgers @ Philadelphia Phillies (Game 1)
Coming off of their 22-0 rout of the Phillies on Saturday the Dodgers must have been pretty confident coming into today’s doubleheader. The first tilt feature Ken Heintzleman for Philly vs Joe Hatton for Brooklyn. Philly nursed a 1-0 lead through the 7th but Brooklyn broke out for 3 in the top of the 8th as Heintzleman gave up 3 hits before getting lifted with no one out. The Philly bullpen kept the damage to 3 runs and Brooklyn entered the 9th with a 2 run lead. In the 9th Dodger reliever Paul Minner gave up 2 walks and 2 singles before he gave way to Joe Banta. Banta fared no better, a single brought in a run, followed by a Dodger error that brought in the tying run, and the Richie Ashburn hit a single to drive in the winning run for Philly - final 4-3.
WP: Trinkle (PHL)
LP: Minner (BKN)

Brooklyn Dodgers @ Philadelphia Phillies (Game 2)
Game 2 saw Ralph Branca facing Curt Simmons. Philly got the scoring started in the 3rd with a triple by Ashburn followed by an RBI single from Eddie Waitkus. The two teams traded 3 spots in the 4th with Brooklyn getting RBI singles from Reese, Cox, and Branca. Philly got an RBI double from Eddie Miller and a 2 RBI double from Ashburn to get their 3 - Ashburn went 4-4 with a 2B, 3B and 2 RBI. Both starters went 8 without allowing any more runs. The Phillies took the 2nd game by an identical 4-3 score for the twin killing.

Monday - April 25th 1949
Cincinnati Reds @ St Louis Cardinals
Ken Raffensberger threw a CG win and hit a 3-run bomb to help the Reds top the Cardinals today. Raffensberger’s HR came in the top of the 2nd to hand the Reds a 4-0 lead. Raffensberger allowed 2 runs in the 4th but only gave up 2 hits and 1 walk the rest of the game.
WP: Raffensberger (CIN)
LP: Breechen (STL)

Chicago Cubs @ Pittsburgh Pirates
Rip Sewell threw 8.1 fantastic innings allowing only 6 hits with 4 Ks. However his counterpart Bob Rush managed to the full 9 allowing only 6 hits and 1 walk for a 1-0 CG shutout. Tough game to lose for Sewelll. The only Chicago run came in the 9th on a 1-out single by Scheming followed by a triple from Jeffcoat.
WP: Rush (CHN)
LP: Sewell (PIT)

New York Giants @ Philadelphia Phillies
Another wild one for Philadelphia, in a 13 inning walk off win against the Giants. The Giants held a 5-2 lead after 7 turning the game over to their bullpen as Clint Hartung showed signs of fatigue. The NY bullpen gave up a 2 runs in the 8th as an Ashburn triple scored Andy Seminick 2 batters later a Giant error allowed Ashburn to score. In the 9th Eddie Miller hit a solo HR to tie.
The 2 teams traded single runs in the 12, the Giants on an HR by Lockhart. Then in the top of the 13th the Giants scored 2 on 4 straight singles to go up 8-6. The Phillies saved their magic for the bottom of the frame - Jones singled, Miller flied out, then 2 walks to load the bases and bring up Ashburn who hit his 2nd triple of the game to clear the bases for a 9-8 Phillies win.
WP: Rowe (PHL)
LP: Hansen (NYG)

Boston Braves @ Brooklyn Dodgers
The Dodgers, still reeling from the double-header sweep by the Phils hosted the Braves of Boston at Ebbets Field this afternoon. When the dust settled the Dodgers had lost their 3rd straight, dropping this one 11-3. Boston tee’d it up on Dodger pitching for 12 hits, including 2 HR and 5 doubles, to rack up 11 runs. Dodgers starter Morrie Martin was torched for 8 runs in 1.1 innings before getting the hook. Braves starter Bill Voiselle allowed 11 baserunners (5 hits, 6 walks) while striking out 6 to get the CG victory. Voiselle retired the last 11 batters he faced. The only bright spot for Brooklyn was a 2-run HR from Duke Snider in the 5th.
