The Phillies went a head 2-0 in the Third Inning before the Braves scored 5 in the Fifth Inning. Philadelphia clawed back to take a 6-5 lead at the end of the 7th Inning. Jeff Heath’s second home run tied the game in the Eighth. A pinch-hit single by Eddie Miller put the Phillies ahead at the end of the Eighth Inning. Jim Russell led off the Boston Ninth Inning with a walk and scampered to third base on an Earl Torgeson single. Bob Elliott flew out deep to left field scoring Russell and tying the game.
An interesting series. The Phillies beat Johnny Sain in Game One then fell under the spell of Warren Spahn in Game Two. Philadelphia's bats gave then a chance to win in Game Three but their pitching let them down. That may be the theme of the Philadelphia season as their lineup looks solid but their starting rotation doesn't look solid. The Braves rotation is as good as any in either league - but we all knew that.
