Reds Knot Series with Yankees at 1-1

Oct. 5, 1961 - The Cincinnati Reds turned on the high and mighty Yankees at the Stadium today and thrashed the American League champions in the second game of the world series, 6-2. Brilliant four-hit pitching by Joey Jay, the first graduate of Little League baseball ever to appear in a world series, shackled Ralph Houk's Bombers. Three Yankee errors and a passed ball stunned a gathering of 63,083. The series now stands squared at one victory each as it moves to Cincinnati, where the third game will be played on Saturday.
