On October 10, 1964 — At Yankee Stadium, Mickey Mantle, facing Barney Schultz, slams the first pitch of the bottom of the ninth inning out of Yankee Stadium, giving New York a dramatic 2-1 walk-off victory and two games to one advantage over St. Louis in the Fall Classic. Mantle’s game-winning round-tripper, his 16th Fall Classic round-tripper, breaking the previous mark set by Babe Ruth, makes him the fifth major leaguer to end a World Series game with a home run.

Mantle’s homerun gives Jim Bouton the victory and Curt Simmons started the game for the Cardinals pitched 8 innings and gave up just 4 hits, and drove in the only Cardinal run.
