Box Score of the Week

New York Yankees at Milwaukee Brewers - April 10, 1976.


Trailing 9-6 in the bottom of the 9th inning with the bases loaded and no outs, Don Money of the Brewers came to the plate. He appeared to hit a game-winning grand slam home run off Yanks pitcher Dave Pagan to give Milwaukee a dramatic victory but the home run was disallowed. After deliberation among the umpires, it was ruled that Yankees first baseman Chris Chambliss called for (and was granted) time right before Pagan delivered that fateful pitch. Money ended up flying out to right field. 

The Brewers did score one in the 9th but it wasn't enough as the Yanks prevailed 9-7.
