55 Yankees-Twins Play IntoThe Night 6-4-24


It was the 4th of June, the day after Billie Joe McAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge, that the 55 Yankees and Twins met for an 8 PM start at A Diamond in beautiful Central Park, Schenectady. Another day where I am pressed for time so my report will be shorter than some. The Yankees were firing on all cylinders and came away with a 10 to 3 win over the home team . The Twins were their own worst enemy committing three costly errors that allowed five unearned Yankee runs. Twins had six hits off Yankees starter Lex Herlett while the Yankees managed eight hits of Rodney Smith and Jeff Whitehead. Only two strikeouts in the game one for each team. Herlett allowed only one walk in a complete game effort. Twins pitching gave up seven walks, five of which turned into runs. Leading the Yankees offense were Herlett with a double, Jack Griffen a triple, and Carols Liera who went 3-3. 6 Twins had singles . The play of the night, maybe of the season, was made by Twins Jeff Whitehead who made a diving catch of a drive deep in right centerfield to take an extra base hit away from Robert Altobelli in the second inning. Both teams hit many hard drives to the outfield with the difference being the Yankees pokes found clear air while the Twins drives found Yankee leather. One of those nights. I will close by asking that more teams post reports of their games here on the league bulletin board. I know a lot of people like to read about whats happened in the games and who did what. We all know so many guys throughout the league that its fun to see who did what and get a sense of what happened in various games. Thanks.

Dont let the score fool you the game felt a lot closer than the final score . Jim you put together a very competitive squad. Jeffs play was definitely an ESPN top ten play! INCREDIBLE diving catch. Walks and a few timely errors didnt help your cause but was a pleasure of a game look forward to going against your team again.
