Yankees Demolish Tigers In Series Finale

by @ 4:38 pm. Filed under 1958 Yankees, 1958 Yankees Diary - June, Don Larsen, Elston Howard, Gil McDougald

June 22, 1958 at Briggs Stadium
Yankees 15, Tigers 0  (39-21)

The Yankees got the Tigers monkey off their backs in grand fashion with a 15-0 pasting in which just about everyone was a hitting star.  Gil McDougald went four for six with two doubles, three runs and three RBIs.  Elston Howard also had a nice game and he went two for five with his seventh homerun, three RBIs and two runs.

Don Larsen was just as good on the mound and he improved to 6-1 with a two hit shutout.  He walked three and struck out three in the win.

Yankees Held Scoreless In Doubleheader Sweep By Tigers

by @ 4:19 pm. Filed under 1958 Yankees, 1958 Yankees Diary - June, Bob Turley, Don Larsen, Jerry Lumpe

June 15, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Tigers 2, Yankees 0  (35-18)

It was the Yankees fourth doubleheader in eight days and it must have been taking it’s toll because the Yankees were completely shut down.  The Yankees managed four hits and all four were singles and they were unable to push a single baserunner across the plate.

A pretty good start by Don Larsen went to waste.  He fell to 5-1 and he gave up two runs on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts in seven innings of work.

Tigers 3, Yankees 0  (35-19)

It’s bad enough getting swept in a doubleheader but it’s even worse when you can’t manage a single run in either game.  The Yankees dropped their fourth straight to the Tigers and in this finale, they managed just five hits in a shutout loss.  Jerry Lumpe had two of those hits and all five hits were singles.

Bob Turley suffered his second loss of the season and he fell to 10-2.  He gave up three runs on six hits and three walks with nine strikeouts in eight solid frames.

June 11, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Yankees 10, Athletics 2  (33-14)

Elston Howard and Tony Kubek led the way at the plate for the Yankees in their first game of a doubleheader with the Athletics.  Kubek went three for five with a homerun, three RBIs and two runs while Howard went three for four with a double, a triple, three RBIs and a run.  Yogi Berra pitched in with a solo homer, his ninth long ball of the season.

Don Larsen improved to a perfect 5-0 with a solid start.  He gave up two runs on six hits and seven walks with five strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings.  Ryne Duren held the Athletics to just one hit in the final 2 2/3 innings and he earned save number nine.

Yankees 2, Athletics 1  (34-14)

The Yankees finished up their sweep over the Athletics behind another great start by Bob Turley.  He improved to 10-1 and he gave up just a single run on six hits and three walks with three strikeouts in the complete game win.

The Yankees managed just five hits to go along with their six walks but it was enough for the win.  Bobby Richardson tripled and drove in a run while Norm Siebern singled, drew two walks and scored a run.

Yankees Split Doubleheader With White Sox

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.

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.
