IN THE NEWS:
Blue Moon Odom makes his ML debut, and Mickey Mantle greets him with a 3-run opposite field homer in the first inning. New York hangs on to win, again by a 9–7 score.
Ernie Banks belts a double and homer in the same inning, and the Cubs use the big score to beat the Cards, 8–5. Mike Cuellar takes the loss against Larry Jackson.
Sound familiar? The Yanks acquire veteran P Pedro Ramos from the Indians as pennant insurance. The Indians get two players to be named later: Ralph Terry on October 12, and Bud Daley on November 27.
