Willie Mays launched 3 homeruns at Forbes Field '65 where the St Louis Blues beat the Cleveland Spiders by the score of 13 to 6.

Mays provided much of the offense. He laced a base-hit in the 4th inning, lost the ball over the fence for three runs in the 5th inning, launched a Grand Slam homerun in the 6th inning and blasted a solo shot (his 34th of the season) in the 8th inning. St Louis out-hit Cleveland for the game, 17 hits to 14.

The victory went to Kirby Higbe(5-3) who went 5 innings, allowing 1 run. Ted Lyons(4-3) was the loser. He was knocked around pretty good, giving up 7 runs in 4 innings.

The winning ways continue for St Louis. They now have a record of 8-2 in recent days. Cleveland has a record of 43-45 after the loss.
