At Ebbets Field‚ the Braves top the Dodgers‚ 5 – 3‚ in a game that Brooklyn protests. In the 8th inning‚ Duke Snider belts a drive off the CF screen that umpire Artie Gore signals a home run. The Braves point out that‚ according to the ground rules‚ the ball is still in play‚ and Gore sends Snider back to third base. When Duke is stranded there‚ the Dodgers protest. The protest will be rejected by Ford Frick‚ who censors Gore for the confusion he caused by his “bad judgment and slow thinking.”

The White Sox’ 2-1 victory, tying the ALCS at one game apiece with the Angels, will be best remembered for Doug Eddings’s controversial call which appears to signal the third out of the ninth inning has been made, but A.J. Pierzynski takes first base as the home plate ump belatedly rules the catcher had trapped the swinging strike. Chicago will take advantage of the incident when pinch runner Pablo Ozuna steals second and scores the winning run on Joe Crede’s double.

Raul Ibanez hits a grand slam off Joel Hanrahan in the 8th inning to lead Philadelphia to a 13 – 11 win over Washington. Ibanez’s blast follows another grand slam by Ryan Howard off Shairon Martis in the 5th. The Nationals are up 6 – 2 and 11 – 7, but cough up the lead twice, negating a five-home run performance by their hitters.
