Drysdale Contributes on the Mound and at the Plate as L.A. Tops Braves, 8-0

Sept. 2, 1962 - Don Drysdale pitched a 5-hitter, scored his 23rd victory, and drove in 2 runs today as the Dodgers maintained their 3-and-a-half-game National League lead by defeating Milwaukee, 8-0. The Dodger shortstop, Maury Wills, pulled his 75th and 76th steals. He is only 4 short of the National League stolen-base record established in 1911 by Bob Bescher of Cincinnati. Johnny Roseboro drove in three runs for the Dodgers with a double and two sacrifice flies. Drysdale struck out five and walked none. Only one Milwaukee runner, Henry Aaron, got beyond second base, and he made it on an error.
