June 5, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Yankees 12, White Sox 5  (30-11)

The Yankees won their 30th game of the season in the first game of a doubleheader with the White Sox.  Mickey Mantle hit a solo homer for his eighth of the season and he finished with three runs while Enos Slaughter was a perfect three for three with a walk, two runs and two RBIs.

Don Larsen improved to perfect 4-0 even though he didn’t have his best stuff.  He gave up five runs on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings.  Ryne Duren threw 2 2/3 shutout innings to close out the game and he picked up save number eight.

June 5, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
White Sox 3, Yankees 2  (30-12)

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 30, 1958 at Municipal Stadium

For the first time all season, the Yankees had a three game losing streak and this time it was the pitching and defense that got them into trouble.  Whitey Ford last just three innings but four of the six runs he gave up were unearned.  Bob Grim also had a tough time and he gave up five runs on four hits and a walk with three strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings.  He fell to 0-1 on the season.

Yankees Edge Senators for Fourth Straight Win

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.

Bobby Shantz improved to 4-0 despite running into trouble in that eighth inning.  In all, he gave up five runs on nine hits with three strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings.  Ryne Duren struck out four in 1 2/3 innings and he picked up his fifth save of the season.

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
