However, London said the two - time Cy Young Award winner could be pitching again in four to six weeks — an important date if St. Louis makes it to the World Series. The dramatic comeback would be old hat for No. 45. Gibson suffered a broken right leg on July 15, 1967, when a shot off the bat of Roberto Clemente hit him. But he returned six weeks later to lead the Cards into the World Series, beating the Boston Red Sox three times for the championship. Discounting Gibson's ripe age of 37 years, London said the superstar can heal quickly "with his competitive desire and our two trainers available to speed his recovery." If Gibson is sidelined permanently, it would end the career of one of baseball's greatest righthanders. Since his first full season with the Cardinals in 1961, Gibson has had 12 consecutive winning years, including five in which he had 20 or more victories. With such an impressive rec the loss of Gibson ord, shivers sent of the up the spines pennant-hungry St. Louis players and fans. .'The mood of the club is deflated a little," admitted Joe Torre. "We've been counted + out three times—in spring training, in May and now with Gibson out." "If we wanted a built - in excuse," added Ted Simmons, "we have one." But as the Cardinals showed at the end of May—when they were 11 games out of first place with an 8 - 23 record— there's always hope. As Torre put it, "A club that has come this far in August, even without Gibson, can't be counted out."

One run scored on Al Kaline's infield out and then Howard, batting for Norm Cash, hit his eighth homer of the year.
