June 15, 1962 - The Philadelphia Phillies scored 10 runs in the third inning day for a 13-8 victory over the National League champion Cincinnati Reds. Roy Sievers (pictured) batted in five runs with the ninth grand slam of his career and a single. Jim Maloney and Johnny Klippstein were pounded during the highest-scoring inning in the National League this year, lasting 38 minutes. Art Mahaffey, who had lost three in a row to the Reds after beating them on opening day, gave five unearned runs after a two-out error by Frank Torre in the fifth. He gave way to Chris Short with two out in the ninth after the Reds had scored three times and had two on. Short struck out a pinch-hitter, Wally Post.
