The Detroit Tigers are the 1967 AL replay champions! Earl Wilson mowed down the Mantle-less Yanks, Norm Cash hit his 40th HR, a 3-run shot, and the Tigers took a 5-0 lead into the bottom of the ninth in New York. The Yanks managed to put two on with one out, but Dick "Howser Mudda Howser Fadda?" Howser sent a ground ball to Ray Oyler, who flipped to McAuliffe for one, and the relay to Cash completed the double play and gave the jubilant Tigers their first flag since 1945. Wilson collected his 20th win, making him the league's fifth 20-game winner.
|The MXC gang tried to warn the Twins.|
Phil Ortega of the Senators just said "no" to losing 20. Supported by a first inning solo bomb by Frank Howard, Phil made a bid for a no-hitter, but Orioles' pinch-hitter Dave May blooped a single to left with two out in the last of the eighth.
