When I saw the score and the opponent, I thought I had been to this game, but, of course, I went the night before for my birthday when the Sox lost 4-3 in the Tommy John-Denny McLain matchup. That game ended with Ed Herrmann grounding out softly to the pitcher with two outs and the bases loaded after the Tigers took the lead in the top of the ninth. I watched this game on Channel 32, though. Bill Melton took three strikes to end the game with the tying run at second and the winning run on first.
