Singer Sews Shutout

4/30/68 - Dodger Stadium
Singer vs Washburn
Dodgers 1, Cardinals 0

Behind a Bill Singer 4 hitter the Dodgers reversed their fortunes of the previous day to post a 1-0 shutout victory of their own.  This one didn't stay scoreless until the 8th like yesterday's game.  The Dodgers broke the ice in the 3rd when Luis Alcaraz singled home Singer with 2 outs.  Singer came around to score from second having doubled with one out.  On the day he would double twice and have 2 of LA's 5 hits.  Singer was brilliant in the top of the 8th when the Cards led off with back to back Javier-Maxvill singles.  Singer struck out former Dodger Dick Schofield and got the ever so dangerous Lou Brock to line out to Wes Parker at first.  An error by Alcaraz at third on a sinking liner from Curt Flood loaded the bases, but Singer fanned Roger Maris for his 10th strikeout of the day to end the inning and St. Louis's only legitimate threat on the day.
