Bombers Take Game Four in Cincinnati

Oct. 8, 1961 - The Yankees defeated the Reds, 7-0, today and moved within a game of winning the 1961 world series. Babe Ruth's 43-year-old pitching record of 29 and two-thirds scoreless innings fell along with the Reds. The record was broken by the skillful Whitey Ford (pictured). Ford was able to pitch only five innings before leaving with a bruised toe. But he departed with a world series mark of 32 consecutive scoreless innings. Should the Reds escape another defeat, the series will return to New York on Wednesday.
