May 13, 1963 - Leon Wagner (pictured), Jim Fregosi, and Ed Sadowski each drove in 2 runs today as the Los Angeles Angels scored a 7-3 victory over the first-place Chicago White Sox before 29,011 fans at Comiskey Park. The Los Angeles starter, Don Lee, lasted only three innings, and Dean Chance took over, holding Chicago to one run in the next three innings. Julio Navarro finished. Fregosi had a triple and a double. The double scored Wagner and George Thomas. Fregosi scored on Sadowski’s single. This put the Angels ahead to stay. Eddie Fisher, the White Sox starter who had a 4-0 record against Los Angeles last year, yielded the first four runs as he took his fifth loss. Dave DeBusschere, Gary Peters, and Joe Horlen worked in relief. Meanwhile, according to an Associated Press survey released today, Los Angeles’s two baseball teams, the Angels and the Dodgers, are setting an early-season home attendance pace in their respective leagues. The Dodgers, whose 3-game series against the rival San Francisco Giants the past weekend drew 144,178, top both the National and American Leagues in home attendance with 446,327. The Angels, who lead the American League in home attendance with 202,297, are ahead of their 1962 figures. The Houston Colt .45s, on the other hand, who came into the National League last season, have drawn 153,822 for 16 home dates. In 1962, their total for the same number of home dates was 286,471. The drop is 132,649. The other teams behind last season’s attendance pace are the Giants, Pirates, Senators, Yankees, Cardinals, White Sox, and Reds.
