Philadelphia vs Newark, Game 1

The Divisional Playoffs between the two Union League Atlantic Division rivals, the Newark Eagles and the Philadelphia Athletics, promised to be a hard fought contest -- and the first game was a beauty!. Carl Hubbell (13-7, 3.44) took the mound for Philadelphia, and Sam Crawford (9-8, 2.98) led from the hill for Newark. Both went 9 innings . . . and left with the score deadlocked. Yes, that was the kind of series that was promised from these two.

Willie MaysMel Ott Philadelphia manufactured their runs this game: a Boggs single, an Ott walk, a Bill Terry single to score Boggs in the first. Newark claimed their runs: Willie Mays strokes one deep down the left field line in the bottom of the first in response. Philadelphia continues their way: Kaz Matsui walks in the third, moves to second on a wild pitch, steals third, and then scores on an Ott groundout. Newark responds with a blast to deep left-center by Willie Mays in the fourth. Then in the eighth, Boggs walks, is then forced at second on a fielders choice from Ott, Terry hits a short single, Yastrzemski walks, and then Biggio squeezes in Ott. In response, same inning, Larry Doby sends one to the fields outside the park in deep right field.

That's the way the score would stay, 3-3, until the 12th when the roles got reversed, and Mel Ott went deep down the left field line and out of Ruppert Stadium for Philadelphia off the normally overpowering Mariano Rivera (7-3-30, 1.87). Newark's attempt to manufacture a run on a two singles and a pinch-runner ended on a neat double play: Matsui to Huggins to Terry.

Philadelphia vs Newark, Game 2
Philadelphia AthleticsNewark Eagles

Bob GibsonIron Man McGinnity The second game pitted Bob Gibson (9-7, 3.92) of Philadelphia against Iron Man McGinnity (11-6, 4.39) of Newark. This time both pitchers finished what they started, and what they started ended in regulation. The game was really centered on the two pitchers, overpowering Bob Gibson and mesmerizing Iron Man McGinnity. But it was just as tight this time around as last time. Newark strolled out to a 2-0 lead on single runs in the 4th and 7th. In the 4th, Roy White walked, was sacrificed to second by Home Run Johnson, and then scored an unearned run when Philadelphia centerfielder, Jimmy Lyons, threw the ball away when White advanced to third on a Willie Mays flyout. The 7th was more of the same when Mays walked, advanced to second when Leonard was safe on a Bob Gibson error -- and then it got a little wild. Mays & Leonard stole third and second, Henrich walked to fill the bases, and then Mays scored when Chipper Jones flyed out to Ott, and Ott doubled up Leonard trying to advance. Philadelphia was able to answer with a Bill Terry home run in the 8th, but it wasn't enough as Newark evened the series with a 2-1 win. Both teams were held to 3 hits in this one, and Iron Man did not allow a single walk, or strike out a batter in his 9 innings of winning work -- finished in only 86 pitches.

Newark vs Philadelphia, Game 3
Newark EaglesPhiladelphia Athletics

The series moved over to Shibe Park for game 3, Webster McDonald (5-3, 2.83) for the visitors and Pedro Martinez (9-8, 3.52) for the home team. Pedro, in the manner of the starting pitchers this seaeris went the entire distance. But McDonald needed some last inning help from Steve Reed (11-4-2, 3.18) -- but that help wasn't enough.

The Eagles disrespected their hosts by scoring first . . . and second. J. Preston "Pete" Hill opened the game by smashing Martinez's second pitch too far down the left field line for any but the fans to field it. In the 3rd it was Pete Hill again, as he doubled, moved to third on an infield single by Home Run Johnson, and scored on a double play ball hit by Willie Mays.

Matty AlouPete Hill2 That would be all the scoring for anyone until the bottom of the 8th. McDonald must have tired, because after setting down 10 straight he walked Yaz to start the inning. Matty Alou followed with an infield single. McDonald seemed to regain control when he struck out Wade Boggs swinging. But then Mel Ott grounded a single through the infield to load the bases. Bill Terry then lifted a single to shallow left field which scored Yaz. Matty Alou did not stop at third, instead digging for home for all he was worth. Pete Hill could not handle the catch and throw, and was charged with an error. Steve Reed came in to relieve McDonald, but Biggio squeezed in the third run and the Athletics came away with a 3rd run.

The Eagles tried to come back -- Hurly McNair smashed a double down the line with one out, and Larry Doby worked a walk on a pinch hit an out later . . . but Pedro got pinch-hitter Chipper Jones to ground out and end the game.

Newark vs Philadelphia, Game 4
Newark EaglesPhiladelphia Athletics

The series was about to break wide open for the 4th game, sort of. After three tight 1-run pitching duels, the hitters were raring to unlimber their lumber.

23 hits in this one, after only 19 total in the last 2 games. 19 runs in this one, after only 15 in the first 3 games. 8 runs in one-half inning in this one, more than the number of runs total in any one of the first 3 games.

It didn't start out much different than the other games: a single run in the 2nd and 3rd by Newark brought them to a 2-0 lead when the 4th started. Then something happened to Philadelphia starter, Mordecai Brown (14-10, 3.50). Eagle Quincy Trouppe lined a single up the middle, Brown balked, and then Joe Cronin followed his earlier triple with a single now. Newark's starting pitcher was given a walk from Brown on four straight pitches, loading the bases. Things were grim for Philly.

Kazuo MatsuiLarry Doby Hurley McNair popped up harmlessly, but then Bill Terry muffed a grounder by Home Run Johnson, bringing in a run. Willie Mays walked forcing in a run and forcing Brown out of the ballgame. Larry Gura came in and was greeted by Kaz Matsui booting a Buck Leonard grounder -- letting another run score. Larry Doby then did away with all the one-run-at-a-time stuff with a bases clearing triple to the deepest part of right-center. Kaz Matsui then made his second error of the inning on a grounder by Chipper Jones that scored Doby. The Eagles with 7 runs scored in the inning were not quite done as Trouppe & Cronin singled for the second time in the inning, scoring Jones for the 8th run and 10th total tally for the game. 10-0 Newark.

Ouch.

Newark scored their eleventh run without a response the next inning on a walk, wild pitch and a Willie Mays single.

It was at this time the Athletics tried to come back: Matsui walked and scored two outs later on Bill Terry's second homer of the series. But that's where it ended until the 8th when Yaz doubled, Biggio beat out an infield single, and then Yaz scored on a groundout by Chief Meyers. 11-3. Newark sailing, and thinking the game done have 5 subs playing the field when the Athletics come up for their last at bat of the game. Jimmy Lyons opens up with a single followed by a Matsui double. Boggs scores Lyons on a single that also knocks Newark starter, Terris McDuffie (4-2, 3.89), out of the game in favor of Sam Streeter (1-1, 4.04). Marvelous Mel disapoints his fans by striking out, and Bill Terry grounds out in a force play to Cronin at short that scores a run. Carl Yastrzemski then put a Streeter pitch over the right field Spite Wall. Craig Biggio followed with his own long tater to left field -- and with the score now 11-8 and things getting dicey, the Eagles called Mariano Rivera in as the Atheltics called for Miller Huggins to pinch hit. Rivera won that matchup as Huggins popped out, and the Eagles came away just a mite scared after thinking they had a laugher.

Series tied 2-2. On to the final game.

Philadelphia vs Newark, Game 5
Philadelphia AthleticsNewark Eagles

Back to Newark for the Final. All the other Divisional Playoff Series were over and done. San Francisco players could be seen in the Ruppert Stadium seats watching and waiting for who they would play next. This one would be like the rest of the series, a tense game down to the wire with the winner in doubt until the last out -- in the best traditions of baseball.

Carl Hubbell (13-7, 3.44) was back for Philadelphia after his 139-pitch, 5-hit performance in game 1. But he had a new opponent, Newark countered with Juzo Sanada (15-7, 3.16): the Union League's starting pitcher in the All Star Series.

Juzo SanadaMel Ott Newark threatened in the first when Home Run Johnson bunted for a safety, and Biggio booted a Mays grounder -- but nobody crossed the plate until the next inning when Joe Cronin opened up the Newark half with a blast to left. But that was all as the pitchers for both sides took over until the bottom of the 5th when Juzo Sanada (.290, 1, 12) himself surprised Carl Hubbell by lifting a Hubbell mistake deep past the left field wall. 2-0, Newark.

Philadelphia came right back for one with a Boggs single, an Ott double and a Terry groundout. But Hubbell tired a couple innings later in the 7th. After Doby grounded out to the mound, Trouppe doubled and Sanada worked a 3-2 pitch for a walk. Perhaps in frustration, Hubbell hit the next batter (Pete Hill) with a pitch to load the bases. Johnson walked in a run, Mays struck out, and then Buck Leonard stroked a double scoring Sanada and Hill, but Johnson was out at the plate on a perfect peg by Mel Ott. 5-1, Newark.

Philly did not give up, and in the 8th Matsui beat out an infield hit to start things off. Boggs followed 5 pitches and 2 pickoff attempts later with a sharp single. Mel Ott doubled in Matsui, and that sent Sanada to the showers. John Candelaria (12-2, 3.30) entered and got Terry to ground out, but Boggs scored. Yaz then grounded out, but again the runner scored. Biggio singled, and Mariano Rivera came in to pitch. McCarver singled, and then Matty Alou pinch-hitting for Hubbell singled in Biggio. Rivera got Lyons on strikes to end it. 5-5, all tied up.

Mitsuhiro Adachi (6-2-2, 3.25) came in for the Athletics, and with help from Hooks Wiltse (2-2, 3.95) got out of the 8th with little trouble. In the top of the 9th, Mariano Rivera sent the 3 Athletics he faced down on 11 pitches.

Bottom of the 9th, Chester Williams (.244, 4, 26), Newark's sub shortstop, then pinch hit for Rivera. On a 1-1 pitch he got all of a Hooks Wiltse pitch and to the joyous uproar from Ruppert Stadium, he deposited that pitch in a place out of play, fair ball. 6-5, Newark. Series over.
