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.

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 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.

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.

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.

April 22, 1958 at Yankee Stadium
Yankees 12, Red Sox 7  (7-1)

The Yankees didn’t get the pitching they’d grown accustomed to this early in the season but it didn’t matter because the hitters broke out in a big way.  Five different Yankees had two RBIs while four scored at least a pair of runs.  Norm Siebern was the hitting star. He had a team high three hits and he homered, drew a walk, drove in two and scored twice.  Gil McDougald also went yard in the win.

Tom Sturdivant gave up all seven runs but he still picked up the win.  He gave up nineteen baserunners (twelve hits and seven walks) but still managed to pick up the win.  Ryne Duren got the final two outs and he picked up his second save of the season.

April 19, 1978 at Yankee Stadium
Yankees 4, Orioles 3  (4-1)

The Yankees had to rely on their bullpen to get out of a ninth inning jam but they held on to win their third straight game.  Bobby Shantz took a shutout into the ninth inning but he gave up two runs and stranded a runner before he got pulled with one out.  Bob Grim came in and gave up a walk and a single to make it a one run game before Ryne Duren came in and got rookie Jim Marshall to bounce into a game ending double play.  Shantz picked up the win while Duren earned a save.

Gil McDougald had a big day at the plate.  He went three for three with a walk, a homerun and two runs.  Andy Carey belted a solo homer while Yogi Berra singled twice and scored a run.

Tom Sturdivant was knocked around for three runs in five innings as the Yankees dropped their first game of the season.  Sturdivant gave up the three runs on seven hits and two walks.  Ryne Duren was solid with three shutout innings of relief but the hitters couldn’t get it done at the plate to mount a come back.
