» June 15, 1950:
The Yankees, frustrated in late April in their aborted trade for Joe Ostrowski with the Browns, finally get the pitcher, along with pitchers Tom Ferrick and Sid Schacht, and 3B Leo Thomas. New York sends infielder Snuffy Stirnweiss, OF Jim Delsing, pitchers Duane Pillette and Don Johnson, and $50,000. Both Ferrick and Ostrowski will prove their worth in the 1950 pennant drive. Tomorrow, the Yanks beat the Browns, 7–5, with Ferrick and Ostrowski starring in relief.

Mickey Mantle is 0-for-5 but reaches base twice after striking out on a wild pitch. The 2nd time, in the 6th inning, he reaches 2B before Detroit C Joe Ginsberg can retrieve the ball, and Joe DiMaggio follows with a homer to deep left field. New York wins, 11–1, behind Joe Ostrowski.
