June 18, 1958 at Cleveland Stadium

Hank Bauer and Elston Howard homered in the Yankees three run first inning and while that was all the Yankees would get, it was good enough for the win.  Howard finished the game 2-4 and his homerun was a two run shot. 

Art Ditmar won his first decision of the season and he improved to 1-0.  He gave up two unearned runs on three hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings.  Ryne Duren didn’t allow a baserunner and he struck out two in 2 1/3 innings of relief.  That was good for his tenth save of the season.

June 12, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Athletics 4, Yankees 1  (34-15)

The Yankees offense was held in check as they kicked off their second doubleheader with the Athletics in as many days.  Andy Carey had two of the Yankees eight hits and he accounted for their lone run with a solo homer in the eighth inning.

Tom Sturdivant took the loss and he fell to 1-4.  He gave up three runs on seven hits and two walks with six strikeouts in five innings.  Art Ditmar threw a solid game and he held the Athletics to one unearned run on four hits in three innings of relief.  The win by the Athletics snapped a seventeen game losing streak at Yankee Stadium

June 12, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Yankees 3, Athletics 2  (35-15)

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.

Yankees Lose Two to Indians

by @ 3:47 am. Filed under 1958 Yankees, 1958 Yankees Diary - June, Andy Carey, Art Ditmar, Bobby Richardson, Enos Slaughter, Johnny Kucks, Mickey Mantle, Sal Maglie

June 8, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Indians 14, Yankees 1  (32-13)

The Yankees suffered their most lopsided loss of the season in the first game of their doubleheader with the Indians.  Johnny Kucks gave up three runs on four hits and he got just one batter out in the first inning before Art Ditmar came into the game.  Ditmar gave up eleven runs in 6 2/3 innings but just five of those were earned because the Yankees made three errors in the contest.

Andy Carey and Bobby Richardson each had three hits in the blowout loss.  Richardson also stole his first base of the season and he scored the lone Yankee run.

June 8, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Indians 5, Yankees 4  (32-14)

After taking the first two games in their series with the Indians, the Yankees lost two to them in one day as they dropped both games of their doubleheader.  Sal Maglie gave up four runs in three innings in his start but the Yankees came back to tie it up in the fifth.  Unfortunately Johnny Kucks gave up a six inning run that turned out to be the difference in the game.

Enos Slaughter went two for three with a walk, a homerun and two runs.  Mickey Mantle hit a solo shot in the fourth inning, his eleventh homer of the season.

Yankees Split Doubleheader With Senators

by @ 3:19 am. Filed under 1958 Yankees, 1958 Yankees Diary - May, Art Ditmar, Bobby Shantz, Hank Bauer, Johnny Kucks, Mickey Mantle, Moose Skowron, Ryne Duren

May 11, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Yankees 4, Senators 3  (13-4)

The Yankees held off a late inning surge by the Senators in this one in order to win their fourth straight game in the first game of a Sunday doubleheader.  Bobby Shantz was cruising along until the seventh inning when he started giving up runs.  Single runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings made it a one run game and the Yankees needed Ryne Duren to get the final out of the game (with runners at the corners) to preserve the win.  Shantz improved to 3-0 and he gave up three runson seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts in 8 2/3 innings.  Duren picked up his fourth save when he got the one batter out.

Bill Skowron was the hitting star in the win.  He went two for three with a walk, a run and an RBI.  Hank Bauer went two for four with a triple and he scored one run.

May 11, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Senators 4, Yankees 0  (13-5)

The Yankees four game winning streak came to an abrupt end as the Yankees were shutout on five hits.  It was the first shutout of the season for the Yanks and Mickey Mantle was the only hitter who reached base more then once with a pair of singles.

Johnny Kucks had a rough start and he fell to 1-1 with the loss.  He gave up three runs on three hits and two walks with a strikeout in 3 1/3 innings.  Art Ditmar was solid in relief and he gave up just one run on three hits and a walk with a strikeout in 4 2/3 innings.

by @ 3:11 am. Filed under 1958 Yankees, 1958 Yankees Diary - April, Art Ditmar, Elston Howard, Gil McDougald, Johnny Kucks, Ryne Duren

April 23, 1958 at Griffith Stadium
Senators 4, Yankees 3 (7-2)

Art Ditmar gave up an unearned run in the ninth that sent the game into extra innings and then Ryne Duren gave up a run in the tenth as the Yankees lost their first game since their second contest.  It didn’t help that Johnny Kucks had a mediocre start either.  He gave up three runs on seven hits and three walks in six innings of work.

Gil McDougald singled twice and drove in two runs in the loss.  Elston Howard singled, doubled, drove in one run and scored.
