Reds Lose to Giants, Lead Over Dodgers Shrinks to One Game

July 22, 1961 - The six-hit pitching of Jack Sanford, backed by a hitting spree headed by Jim Davenport's homer, gave San Francisco an 8-3 victory today over the Reds. Only Frank Robinson, who hit a homer in the ninth, and Don Blasingame could do much with Sanford's offerings. The loss was the National League leaders' sixth in a row. The Dodgers now trail the Reds by a single game, and the Giants are six games back.
