Yankees Top Angels in Offensive Showcase

July 14, 1962 - In a 10-inning carnival of good wood, the Yankees defeated the Los Angeles Angels, 9-8, today before a roaring crowd of 35,228 at Chavez Ravine Stadium. Seven home runs split the smoggy air over Los Angeles. Only two were hit by Yankees, but it was Tom Tresh’s seventh of the year that broke a 7-7 tie and gave the Bombers their only victory of the three-game series. The triumph enabled the Yankees to increase their league lead over the third-place Angels and the second-place Indians, who lost to the Orioles. Today’s crowd brought Angel season attendance to 612,053 — 3,543 more than the team drew all last season at Wrigley Field in Los Angeles.
