Cant Predict Baseball: NYY & Bal Trade Runs

On this day in 1960 the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees played a crazy, albeit entertaining, game where they traded runs for runs and hits for hits. The Yankees started the barrage by scoring eight runs against Baltimore before recording an out in front of the home crowd in the first inning. The Orioles narrowed the gap with eight and ninth inning grand slams by Albie Pearson and Billy Klaus. The Yankees ended up winning the game 15-9 in a game that had to leave the fans headed home satisfied that they got their money's worth.

On this day in 1965 Casey Stengel won a mind blowing 3,000th game of his managerial career. Stengel managed for the Dodgers, Braves, Yankees, and Mets and the Metropolitans are who he won the historic 3,000th game managing. The Mets scored three runs in the top of the ninth inning to beat the San Francisco Giants 7-6 at Candlestick Park. While Stengel is most known for his 12 year Yankees manager tenure and his 1,149 wins this is a memory most Mets fans will live with forever.

You can't predict baseball.
