1961 Game 77: Chicago White Sox (39-38) @ Minnesota Twins (30-46)

Monday July 3, 1961

Twins 7, White Sox 6

The Twins and the White Sox were tied at the seventh inning stretch, but one swing of Bob Allison’s bat in the bottom of the inning put the game away for the home team.

With two outs and the bases loaded, Allison deposited a Turk Lown pitch over the fence in left field. The grand slam gave the Twins a four-run lead. As it turned out, they needed all four runs.

The Sox scored three off of Pedro Ramos who came on in relief of Camilo Pascual, but the Twins held on for the win.
