#FarewellCandlestick: The 100 Greatest Moments in Candlestick Park History #54

#55 is here.

#54 August 10, 1962 The Swamp

The best Giants team ever trailed the Dodgers by 5.5 when LA came to Candlestick for a three game series on August 10.  The Giants replaced the soil off of the first base bag with a loose, watery mixture that served to dampen Maury Wills and the Dodgers running game.  The Giants swept the series, cutting LA's lead to 2.5.  This is game 1, Willie Mays homered and doubled, Billy O' Dell threw a complete game 5 hitter, the Giants beat the Dodgers 11-2 and went on to win their first Candlestick pennant.

#53 is tomorrow
