Yanks Top Angels as Tommy Tresh Excels

June 29, 1962 - Four Angel errors and a complete-game, 4-hit pitching performance by Whitey Ford led to a 6-3 Yankee triumph today. The victory extended the Yanks’ winning streak to three games, and they also drew to within a half-game of the front-running Indians, who bowed to the White Sox. Manager Ralph Houk’s defending champions picked up the run that won the game at the expense of pitcher Jack Spring in the seventh inning. A lead-off single by Tom Tresh (pictured) , a walk to Bobby Richardson, and an intentional walk to Mickey Mantle filled the bases with one away. Then Tom Tresh streaked home while Yogi Berra was grounding out. This was the only uprising the Bombers engineered without heavy-handed assistance from their opponents. It broke a 3-3 deadlock the Angels had created with a 2-run foray in their half of the inning.
