Ed Halicki pitched a complete game and Mickey Rivers had 5 hits at Yankee
Stadium as the San Francisco Yankees embarrassed the Philadelphia Indians by
the lopsided score of 15 to 2.
 
Rivers enjoyed a big day at the plate.  He hit a single in the 1st inning,
electrified the crowd with a Grand Slam home run in the 1st inning, slapped a
one-base hit bringing in two baserunners in the 2nd inning, ripped a base-hit
in the 7th inning and slapped a base-hit in the 8th inning.  San Francisco
bats were hot in the 1st inning when they had 9 runs on 7 hits.  San
Francisco kept the pressure on throughout the contest as they scored in 6
different innings.  
 
The win was credited to Halicki(6-6) who went the whole way allowing 2 runs.
The losing pitcher was Wayne Garland(5-8).  He pitched 1/3 of an inning
giving up 4 hits and 3 walks.
 
'It's almost like the ball was trying to hit my bat,' Rivers said. 'Whenever I
would swing, the ball found the sweet spot.'
