Giants Top Phillies as Mays Dominates

July 12, 1962 - Willie Mays made three hits, knocked in a run, stole a base, and scored on an infield out as the San Francisco Giants topped the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-3, today. Jack Sanford, in his first start of the year against his former teammates, gained his 10th victory, though he gave way to Stu Miller in the eighth after Roy Sievers had hit his 10th homer and Clay Dalrymple had doubled. Miller gave a single to Don Demeter and then halted the threat. Mays singled home the Giants’ first run off Jack Hamilton in the first, and San Francisco scored two more in the second. A single, a walk, and a single by José Pagan that bounced 50 feet off home plate filled the bases, and Sanford and Chuck Hiller hit sacrifice flies.
