Fat Jack Fisher wins again for the Reds, downing the Cubs at Wrigley. "I pitch just well enough for just long enough; that's my secret!" he crowed. With the Rhinelanders at the exact one third point of their season, Fats is on track to win a cool 24 games! Not bad for a Dz. He's always had good luck for me. He went 9-4 for my '61 Orioles, and 14-17 for my putrid '65 Mets. He seems to turn up on a different team every year. Fat Jack Fisher, Miracle D!
In Houston, the usually meek Spacemen exploded with four round trippers against a beleaguered Cardinals staff. Ray Washburn lost his 6th straight decision and has not won since April. Joe Morgan and Jim Wynn hit back-to-back blasts.
|Manny is always good for one fluky wind-blown pop fly homer every year!|
|He mystified a line-up boasting Bobby Pfeil, Kevin Collins and J.C.Martin!|
No games on Monday, June 9th as the league pauses to savor 4 teams being within a half game of first place in the west!
