Wimpiness abounds lately around the league! In the past ten games, the losing team has scored no runs 5 times, one run 4 times and four runs once. Perhaps they are practicing for 1968? Jim Hunter gave up only an early single to Jim Fregosi in stopping the Angels cold. To make it worse for the Halos, homer-happy Rick Reichardt will be out 5 games with dry flyaway hair. Ricky Angel will be missed. Don Mincher missed Sunday's game but will be back when the Halos next take the field.
The silly Nats jumped up and bit the Tigers, who still can't seem to buy a hit. Bernie Allen, he of the three-run jack, does not suffer from wimpiness!
Finally, Russ Nixon hit two doubles, a triple and a single for 6 rbi against the stunned White Sox. It was the third 6-rbi performance this season by a Twin, with Mr. Nixon joining Rich Reese and Ted Uhlaender. Speaking of Mr. Reese, he died a grisly death at the hands of bloodthirsty batboys, and will be out until the very last day of the season, when he will return to see whether the Twins pulled off a miracle or not.
