1964 Season Replay: Boyer Homers Twice to Beat Giants

This is a 1964 San Francisco Giants Season Replay using Out of the Park Baseball. More details on this project can be found on our About Retro Baseball Page,



April 18, 1964 

The St. Louis Cardinals topped the San Francisco Giants by the score of 7-2, with the biggest share of the credit going to third baseman Ken Boyer. Boyer slugged 2 home runs, while adding 5 RBI and scoring twice for the Cardinals on the day.

The winner was Roger Craig, who threw 108 pitches over 9 innings. The right-hander was charged with 2 runs on 6 hits. St. Louis is still hoping to get on a roll. The win is just their 2nd in 5 games. Boyer had a big at-bat with runners on 2nd and 3rd in the top of the first inning, when he hit a 3-run home run. The Cardinals went on to win. "I'm just happy to help the team win," Boyer told the St. Louis News.

The Giants drop to 3-2 on the season and trail the Milwaukee Braves by one game in the National League. The Giants will be back action tomorrow afternoon as the Cincinnati Reds come to town. Juan Marichal will makes his second start on the season. He is 1-0 with a 1.00 ERA. The Reds will counter with Bob Purkey who will be making his first appearance this season.

 The Minnesota Twins remain perfect at 4-0 and sit on top in the American League. The Angels, Yankees and White Sox are all one game back.
