On October 7, 1963 –

The New York Yankees ended a scoreless tie in the seventh with three runs. After two leadoff singles, Roger Maris drove a base hit off starter Billy Pierce for two runs, then after moving to third on a sacrifice fly, he scored the eventual winning run on Clete Boyer’s groundout off Don Larsen when the Giants were unable to turn an inning-ending double play. Giants catcher Ed Bailey’s two-run home run in the top of the ninth off Bill Stafford left them a run short.
