At New York, the Tigers sweep a pair from New York, 32 and 82. Charlie Maxwell unleashes his Sunday punch in the opener, hitting a 3-run homer in the 8th. It is his 14th homer, eight of which have come on Sunday. Lary wins his 3rd of the year against the Yankees. Paul Foytack is the winner in game 2. Al Kaline has three hits in each game.
» September 10, 1960: In Detroit, Mickey Mantle unloads a cannon shot for three runs in the 6th inning, the ball clearing the RF roof and landing in the Brooks Lumber Yard across Trumbull Avenue. New York pins a 51 loss on Paul Foytack that moves them a half game in first place ahead of Baltimore, losers today. In June, 1985, Mantle's blow was retroactively measured at 643 feet, and will be listed in The Guinness Book of World Records at that distance.
» April 26, 1961: Roger Maris hits his first home run of 1961 off Paul Foytack of Detroit, and Mickey Mantle adds home runs from both sides of the plate (for the 8th time), as New York wins 1310 at Tiger Stadium. Mantle's 2nd homer, a 2-run shot off Hank Aguirre, snaps a 1010 tie in the 10th.
» June 17, 1961: With two out and two on in the 9th, Mickey Mantle homers off Paul Foytack into the RF upper deck. Elston Howard follows with a home run, but Detroit hangs on to win 1210 over the 3rd-place Yanks.

Mickey Mantle returns to the Yankee lineup and homers against Paul Foytack. But it is not enough as Detroit wins, 54.
» July 31, 1963: The Indians become the first American League club to hit four straight home runs. Number eight hitter Woody Held begins with a 2-out blast off Paul Foytack, P Pedro Ramos follows with his 2nd of the game, Tito Francona makes it three straight, and rookie SS Larry Brown's first ML 4-bagger finishes the string. Foytack sets a dubious ML recordthe only pitcher to give up four straight home runs. The Indians win 95 in the opener of two with the Angels.
» May 23, 1969: Mickey Lolich sets a Detroit record with 16 strikeouts while defeating Andy Messersmith and the Angels 63. Mickey Stanley's grand slam is the difference. Lolich's mark breaks the record of 15 set by Paul Foytack in 1956.
» May 20, 2001: The Braves defeat the Giants, 11-6, despite two home runs -- #515 and #516 -- by Barry Bonds. His five four-baggers, including four consecutive, in two games ties a ML mark. Bonds also homered on the 17th and 18th, giving him seven home runs in his last four games. Atlanta does a bit of homering of their own, thanks in part to Giants reliever Alan Embree who gives up taters to four of the first six batters he faces in the 7th inning. He is the first reliever since Paul Foytack of the 1963 Los Angeles Angels to surrender four long balls in an inning.
