Cubs Sweep Doubleheader from Phillies

May 13, 1962 - Thirteen extra-base hits, including six home runs, helped the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 8-7 and 8-5, today. Barney Schultz, working in both games and running his string to eight straight wins, received credit for both victories. Schultz is now 3-1 for the season. Lou Brock (pictured), Billy Williams, and George Altman hit homers for the Cubs in the opener. Ernie Banks, Ken Hubbs, and Altman connected in the second game. In all, the Cubbies had 23 hits. Brock’s homer starting the ninth inning of the first game lifted the Cubs into a tie. They put across the winning run when they filled the bases and Don Demeter’s throw to the plate was wide on Ron Santo’s grounder.
