Back to back doubleheaders are tough enough but when the final game goes twelve innings, it makes for a long week.  Still, Elston Howard singled home Andy Carey in the bottom of the twelth for the game winner.  Mickey Mantle drew four walks in the game while Moose Skowron went two for six with his sixth homer of the season.

Whitey Ford had an exceptional start but unfortunately, he didn’t get the win.  He gave up two runs on ten hits with seven strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings.  Ryne Duren struck out four of the five batters he faced in 1 2/3 innings of perfect relief and he improved to 3-1 on the season.

The Yankees had to settle for a split in their doubleheader and series with the White Sox after a 3-2 loss in the second game of the twinbilling.  Sal Maglie gave up an RBI single in the top of the ninth and that proved to be the deciding run but because the Yankees didn’t score either of their two runs until the bottom of the ninth, it was Bobby Shantz who took the loss despite a solid start.  He fell to 4-2 and he gave up two runs on ten hits and three walks with four strikeouts in eight innings of work.

Andy Carey had a pair of singles and he scored a run.  Mickey Mantle was 0 for 3, but he drew a walk and scored a run.

May 17, 1958 at Griffith Stadium
Yankees 6, Senators 5  (17-5)

Andy Carey’s eighth inning two run homer looked like padding but it turned out to be the difference in the Yankees fourth straight win.  The homer gave the Yankees a 6-2 lead but three Senator runs in the bottom of the eighth turned that homer into a neccesity for the win.  Carey finished with three RBIs while Mickey Mantle singled, drew a walk, drove in two and scored a run.
