Dodgers Tie for First!

Sept. 24, 1959, Cover

The Dodgers and Braves were sprinting to the finish. The Giants were stumbling and wishing it had ended a week ago, when they still have a shot to reach the World Series.

Roger Craig, who lost 17 games in the minors a season ago, pitched a five-hitter to lead the Dodgers to a 3-0 victory over the Cardinals in St. Louis. That put Los Angeles in a first-place tie with Milwaukee. San Francisco was in third, two games out.

Only three games to play.
