Events

  • June 15 - In what many consider to be the worst trade in the history of baseball, the Cubs trade future Hall of Famer Lou Brock to the Cardinals for Ernie Broglio in a six-player deal.
  • September 20 - Jim Bunning, in relief, strikes out Johnny Roseboro in the 9th inning to preserve the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Los Angeles. The win comes after 2 straight losses and leaves the first place Phils in front of the National League by six and a half games with 12 games to play. When they return to Philadelphia in the early morning, 2,000 fans including mayor James Tate are on hand to greet the team.
  • September 27 - The Phillies lose to the Milwaukee Braves, 14-8 (the 7th loss in the Phillies' 10-game losing streak), as the Reds sweep the Mets (4-1 and 3-1). These results put the Reds into 1st place in the NL, and the Phillies will never return there in 1964.
  • October 3 - As a result of the now-concluded Phillies' 10-game losing streak, this day begins with 4 teams still having a mathematical shot at the NL pennant. One of them, the San Francisco Giants, is eliminated today by a 10-7 loss to the Chicago Cubs. At the end of today's games, the Reds and the Cardinals are tied for 1st place, with the Phillies 1 game back. In recent days, the NL has had to scramble to schedule various possible playoffs.
  • October 4 - The Phillies defeat the Reds, 10-0, in the last regular-season game for both teams unless there is a playoff. At the end of that game, both teams are 1/2 game back of the Cardinals, and await the result of the Cardinals-Mets game. Then, the Cardinals, never in first place until the last week of the season, clinch the NL pennant with an 11-5 win over the New York Mets, who had just beaten the Cardinals twice in the two preceding days. Today's win by the Cardinals averts a three-way tie for the NL pennant, with the Phillies and the Reds finishing one game back in a 2nd-place tie. It is the first Cardinals pennant since 1946.
