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.
