The Yankees evened up their series with the White Sox in a game where five of the six Yankee runs came via the long ball.  Mickey Mantle and Norm Siebern both belted solo homers and Jerry Lumpe belted a big three run blast in the fourth inning.  For Mantle, it was his thirteenth of the season.  For Lumpe, it was his first major league homer of his career.

Bob Turley threw a nice game and he improved to 11-3.  He gave up two runs on seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings.  Ryne Duren picked up his eleventh save in impressive fashion.  He walked just one batter and struck out six in 2 2/3 innings of no-hit relief.

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.

June 15, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
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.
