Guys who like to grab at such hopeful straws now must be wondering can this be the start of the pennant push? Of course, if you're a guy who doesn't get carried away so easily, you'll undoubtedly point out that this was the sixth-straight win that Whitey didn't finish, and this series sweep came against a club that has lost five in a row and nine of its last 10 games.

Bruce hit Ed Kranepool on tha right lepr with a bouncing pitch at the start of the eighth. After Smith fanned, Swoboda doubled to left-center and Maye kicked the ball twice for an error which let Kranepool score. Cowan then struck out and Joe Christopher, hitting for Jax, made the third out on a long fly into the right field corner. Stengel called on lefty Larry Miller to hold the fort. With one out, Gaines singled and stole and Wynn doubled him home. Walter Bond singled to score Wynn. Larry Bearnarth ended the uprising by getting two groundouts, but the damage was done.
