Yankees Drop Second Straight to White Sox

June 25, 1963 - The Yankees, who scored three straight triumphs in Boston after losing the opener of a four-game series, won’t be repeating that act in Chicago. Today, the White Sox, before a wildly enthusiastic crowd of 46,177, won their second straight game of this series from the world champions, 2-1, behind a superb 5-hitter by their strong-armed left-hander, Juan Pizarro (pictured). Ralph Terry was also brilliant, taking a no-hitter into the sixth. But one of only three hits he allowed sank the tall right-hander in a manner familiar to Yankee fans. In the seventh, with the score 1-1, Floyd Robinson belted a home run that landed up in the upper deck in right. Thatset off the wailing wall of the scoreboard with its rockets and explosions and filled the night with the roars of the largest crowd at Comiskey this year. It was the 17th home run ball served by Terry this year and sent the Oklahoman to his eighth defeat against seven victories. The White Sox have yet to lose to the champions after four encounters this season and are virtually tied in the standings with the Bombers. The Yanks, however, held on to first place by nine percentage points. Roger Maris drove in the Yankees’ tally today when he singled after Bobby Richardson hit and advanced on a slow grounder by Tom Tresh.
