Twins 2 - Red Sox 3 -- May 30th, 1969

I recently received another vintage program that I bought on Ebay.  This time, it's a Red Sox program against the visiting Twins on May 30th, 1969.

The Twins lost 2-3 behind manager Billy Martin.  Killebrew went 1-4 with a two-run home run in the 7th inning.  Carew and Oliva each had doubles.  Dave Boswell took the loss for the Twins.  Jim Perry was sent in as a pinch runner for Harmon Killebrew, and didn't even pitch!

Jim Lonborg was the winning pitcher for the Red Sox.  Rico Petrocelli knocked in 2 runs in the bottom of the first inning and Tony Conigliaro had the winning RBI in the 6th, behind one of the Twins three errors.  Ouch.  Yastrzemski was 0-3 and was hit by a pitch.

The best thing about this program, which I wasn't aware of when I bought it, is the advertisement for the 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner on the back cover.  Wow!
