Jim Kaat hurts elbow in the third inning and the Red Sox go on to a 6-4 victory and tie Twins for first place with both teams at 91-70. Meanwhile the Tigers split a DH with the Angels and are half a game back with a DH scheduled for tomorrow. The Tigers won the first game by a 5-0 score and were ahead 6-2 after seven innings but the Angels came back with 6 runs in the 8th inning and held on to beat the Bengals 8-6 and claim a split. The White Sox were eliminated yesterday.
I know that I just told you how this game with the Boston Red Sox ended up but you can still enjoy this game in its entirety by watching this video of the entire game. I hope you enjoy it, it is supposedly the oldest telecast of a complete MLB game totally in color.
What a pennant race!
