Dodgers Top Cubs as Tommy Davis Drives in 100th Run

July 20, 1962 - Tommy Davis (pictured) today drove in 4 runs, becoming the first major leaguer to knock in 100 this season, and led the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs. A right-handed pitcher, Stan Williams, off to a rocky start in the first inning and needing help from Ed Roebuck in the eighth, achieved his ninth win against five losses. The triumph raised Williams’s career record against the Cubs to 7-1. The league-leading Dodgers pushed across four unearned runs in the fifth inning after an error by Andre Rodgers and added two in the sixth. Davis produced two-run singles in each uprising. Maury Wills saw his streak of 20 consecutive stolen bases end when he was put out in the third inning after he appeared to have beaten the throw from catcher Cuno Barragan but overslid the bag. It was only the sixth time this season Wills had been stopped. He has stolen 48 bases.
