Yanks Top Angels, 2-1

May 22, 1962 - Life without Mickey Mantle continues to pose difficulties for Manager Ralph Houk and the Yankees. Tonight, it took the defused Bombers 12 innings to subdue the Los Angeles Angels, 2-1. The victory, in which four New York pitchers shared a one-hitter, enabled the Yankees to regain the American League lead. They are 13 percentage points ahead of the Minnesota Twins. Cleveland, which had been first, lost to Baltimore and dropped to third. In the game at Yankee Stadium, Elston Howard’s sacrifice fly to right field scored Joe Pepitone for the winning run. Young Pepitone, who made three of the eight Yankee hits, also set up the first Bomber run. The four Yankee pitchers were Whitey Ford, Jim Coates, Bud Daley, and Bob Turley.
