Braves Dominate Dodgers, 7-1

June 14, 1962 - The Milwaukee Braves scored five runs in the first inning and breezed to a 7-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers today behind the 6-hit pitching of Bob Shaw. The loss to the Braves, however, did not reduce the Dodgers’ two-game lead over the second-place San Francisco Giants, who lost to the Cincinnati Reds. The Braves picked up all the runs Shaw needed with their big first inning. Tommy Aaron (pictured right with brother Hank) reached first on an error, moved to third on a single by Roy McMillan, and scored on a sacrifice fly by Eddie Mathews. Henry Aaron followed with his twelfth homer.
