NY Stays Hot Against Chicago

May 15: New York 8, Chicago 1

The Yankees didn’t hit any out in this one, but still scored plenty of runs on 13 hits, four walks, and four stolen bases on backup catcher Carlton Fisk’s weakish arm. Mickey Mantle stole three bases and scored three times. Babe Ruth knocked in three with two singles and a triple, and Bill Dickey doubled up on doubles.

Lefty Gomez made his finest start of the year for New York.

The Yankees got another excellent complete game the next day, this time from Ray Caldwell. The Babe stayed hot with another dinger. He’s hitting .429/.478/.857 in his last 10 games. If New York keeps getting a little pitching and a hot Ruth, look out. This was their 14th win in their last 17.

May 17: Chicago 11, New York 4

After scoring just three in the first two games, Chicago got into the swing to salvage the last game. Frank Thomas was the star, blasting a three-run homer in both of his first two plate appearances. Eddie Cicotte went the distance for Chicago, and allowed only four runs against the Yankees in Yankees Stadium, which counts as quite a gem. Lou Gehrig did take Cicotte deep for his league-leading 12th dong.
