ALCS GAME 4: "Clarke Bar"

Game 4 - Yankee Stadium
Earl Wilson vs Jim Bouton
Another classic back and forth game.  There were 7 HR's by 7 different players in the game, all of them solo shots.  Each team scored 2 in the 4th, then Detroit scored 1 in the 6th and 7th to take a 4-2 lead.  But the Yankees scored 1 in the 7th and 3 in the 8th to take a 6-4 lead.  The never say die Tigers came back in the 9th to tie it on a 2 run single by Dick McAuliffe with Jake Wood scoring ahead of Maris's throw.  Another extra inning game?  No, the Yankees sent their fans home happy with another walk-off win, this time scoring on a Mike Ferraro double, Bobby Richardson sacrifice, and Horace Clarke single.  Yanks 7-6
Yankees lead series 3-1
