Game Recap

In a pitchers' battle highlighted by Denny McLain's three perfect innings, the National League eventually triumphed on a Maury Wills single in the 10th inning.

1966: Midsummer Scorcher

The heat was on at brand new Busch Stadium in St. Louis - and not just for the players. The mercury topped out at a blistering 105 degrees. The game was a pitching clinic as both squads barely managed to squeak a run each across the plate as the game went through nine innings. In the bottom of the tenth, with Baltimore's Pete Richert on the hill, Maury Wills of the Dodgers singled to bring home Cards catcher Tim McCarver with the winning run. The LA shortstop's timely hit not only gave the NL it's fourth straight victory, but also probably saved some lives as fans were passing out in the seats due to the incessant heat.
