High Pockets Kelly led the NL in home runs in 1921 with 23.

Thurman Munson banged a long home run in the 1st off Ted Lyons, and an rbi single by Bucky Dent in the 2nd staked the 1978 Yankees to an early 2-0 lead. But, as in game 2, the Yankee bats retired early, allowing the Bottom Feeders to win game 3 rather easily. Ted Lyons pitched the compete game, finishing strong by retiring the last 13 Yankees in order.

George High Pockets Kelly had 4 hits, including a 2 run home run in the 4th. Johnny Evers muscled a Catfish Hunter fastball into the stands for a solo homerun in the 5th. Chick Hafey followed that up with a 3 run shot to put this game away for the Cooperstown crew.

  1. The argument has been made that Catfish Hunter is one of the Hall’s weaker selections among pitchers. If that’s the case, then perhaps he was pitching for the wrong team in this game.

    • Kevin Graham says:

      He probably would have won. The Yankee offense with the exception of Munson has been pretty weak. I dont think they’re going to make a comeback.
