Bronx Bombers sweep Tribe…head to ALCS

Series Boxscores

8/8-8/9 - Yankee Stadium
GAME 1 - Yankees 3, Indians 2

Tony_Kubek_NYY Jim Perry was playing Russian Roulette with the Yankee hitters all day while protecting a 2-0 lead that he received in the top of the 6th thanks to a Harvey Kuenn 2 run blast.  Unfortunately for Perry the bullet that entered the chamber would come in the form of a Tony Kubek 3 run walk off homer in the bottom of the 9th.  Whitey Ford left the game after 7 innings and was on the short side of the ledger.  Luis Arroyo pitched 2 scoreless innings and gained the win.

GAME 2 - Yankees 8, Indians 0
Gary "Ding Dong" Bell got his bell rung by the Bronx Bombers.  The game started outMickey_Mantle_NYY like it was going to be a pitcher's duel.  New York posted solo runs in the 2nd and 3rd innings to give Bob Turley the lead.  Turley would go 8 shutout innings and allow only 3 hits.  New York would unload with 4 runs in the bottom of the 7th.  Mickey Mantle started it all off with a solo shot to lead off the inning.  Bell lost his control after Moose Skowron flew out and walked 3 of the next 4 batters.  Kubek for the second day in a row came through in the clutch.  This time Tony hit a bases clearing double.  The Bombers added 2 more runs in the 9th when Hector Lopez singled home the M&M boys.

8/11-8/12 - Municipal Stadium
GAME 3 - Yankees 7, Indians 2

Roger_Maris_61 Down 1-0 and heading into the 5th the Bombers once again had that big breakthrough inning and scored 4 runs off of Latman.  After Yogi Berra doubled home Bobby Richardson and Kubek, former Indian Roger Maris hit a 2 run shot to right center.  Cleveland would cut the lead in half when Wilson hit a solo shot in the bottom of the inning. It would remain 4-2 until the 9th when the Bombers scored 3 to put the game out of reach.  Berra and Mantle both hit homers as Art Ditmar had 7 easy innings of work to notch the win.
