At Shibe Park, the Braves and Phillies set a major league record by using 43 players in a 9-inning game. The Braves’ 25 match the 9-inning high mark for National League clubs. Eight of the 25 are pitchers, tying a league mark, but still the stumbling Phils drop their 6th in a row, 6 – 4. The topper is Rico Carty’s three-run triple in the top of the 9th against reliever Bobby Shantz, in for starter Art Mahaffey. Joe Torre again has three hits for Milwaukee, which shaves the Phils’ lead to a half-game.
