Andy Carey from the Chronology
Jun 10, 1961 - Pitchers Ray Herbert and Don Larsen 3B Andy Carey and OF Al Pilarcik of the A's go to the White Sox for pitchers Bob Shaw and Gerry Staley and outfielders Wes Covington and Stan Johnson.
May 19, 1960 - The Yankees send SS Andy Carey to the A's for slugger Bob Cerv. Cerv had been with the Yanks for 5 years before going to KC where he banged 38 HRs in 1958 and was chosen as the AL left fielder over Ted Williams. Cerv will be claimed in the expansion draft in 1960 and the Yanks will again reacquire him.
Sep 7, 1959 - At Fenway the trio of Don Buddin P Jerry Casale and Pumpsie Green tie a ML record by belting consecutive HRs in the 2nd off Bob Turley to pace the Sox to a 12-4 drubbing of New York. Andy Carey pinch hits a HR in the 3rd and Mantle adds one the same inning but little else happens for New York which loses its first season-series with the Sox in 11 years.
May 12, 1957 - At Baltimore 3B Andy Carey hits 2 homers for New York while Mantle's tie breaking clout in the 8th gives them a 4-3 win over the O's.
Apr 16, 1957 - At Yankee Stadium Andy Carey's bases-loaded fly ball single in the 9th gives the Yankees a 21 win over the Senators as Whitey Ford bests Chuck Stobbs. Yogi Berra accounts for the other Yankee run with a 7th inning homer. The 0-2 Senators will lose 16 of their next 20 games.
May 12, 1956 - Orioles lefty Don Ferrarese allows no hits through eight innings against the Yankees but Andy Carey and Hank Bauer open the 9th with singles. Ferrarese holds on for a two-hit 1-0 victory.
Apr 27, 1955 - Hank Bauer and Andy Carey the first two Yankee hitters hit homers to deflate White Sox pitcher Virgil Trucks. But the Sox knock the wheels off Ford and 3 relievers for 14 hits to win 13-4 and regain first place in the AL.
Apr 13, 1955 - In the Opener at Yankee Stadium the Yanks rout the Senators 19-1. Winner Whitey Ford gets 3 hits and only allows 2 as he knocks in 4 runs. Mickey Mantle and Bob Cerv also drive home 4 runs. Mantle Yogi Berra and Bill Skowron crack homers while Cerv and Andy Carey add triples. Mickey McDermott in 3+ innings of work is the loser as the Yanks register the biggest margin of victory in an opener. The most runs in an opener was by the Indians 21-14 over the Browns in 1925.
Nov 3, 1954 - The Yankees tour Japan and draw a record crowd of 64000 when they play the first game against the All-Japan Stars in Osaka. Andy Carey slugs 13 HRs and Elston Howard bats .468 on the 25-game tour.
May 2, 1954 - At Yankee Stadium Detroit's Bill Hoeft pitches a 5-inning one hitter to win 4-0. A 5th inning double by Andy Carey is the only safety for the Yanks as rain shortens to contest. The Yanks take the opener 12-4 scoring six runs in the 3rd inning. Allie Reynolds is the winner with six innings of relief.
Jun 29, 1952 - The Kansas City Blues slam 10 homers against St. Paul to set an American Association record for most HRs by one team and tie the record for most by 2 teams. The Blues total 53 bases, and hit 6 home runs in the third inning, both AA marks, enroute to a 17-4 win. Roy Partee has 3 homers, including two in the big inning. Vic Power, Kal Segrist, and Bill Renna have two apiece, and Andy Carey hits one. St. Paul hits none.
