Nevada Dusters record: 5-2
The Phillies returned to Horizon Field for three more with the Dusters -- and seeking revenge for being swept in the season's opening series. They got it against Nevada starter Joe Horlen and a Dusters bullpen that could not silence the Philadelphia bats, which collected eighteen hits. The Phillies began inflicting the damage in the third, when Dick Stuart hit a three-run blast into the left field bleachers. The Dusters answered back in their half of the 3rd as Bob Bailey, getting his first start at third base, started things off with a solo blast. Johnny Roseboro singled and Donn Clendenon hit a two-run homer. (It was the first time this season that Nevada batters hit more than one homer in a game.) The Phillies got another run in the 4th, and by this time Horlen was clearly struggling, having given up ten hits. Ben Naylor saw fit to pull him, but the bullpen fared no better. In the 6th Bill Dailey walked a batter, hit another, and served up two singles, and the Phillies were up 6-3. In the 7th Jim Brewer walked the lead-off batter and allowed three singles, giving Philadelphia a comfortable 8-3 advantage. With a man on in the bottom of the 8th, Denis Menke cranked his first homer of the season over the center field fence, closing the gap to 8-5. But in the top of the 9th, against Fred Gladding, Johnny Callison hit his own two-run downtowner and the Phillies had a 10-5 lead. Philadelphia starter Jesus Velez struck out eleven Nevada batters while allowing three runs on five hits through seven. Naylor was pleased with Bailey's contribution; the third-baseman went 2-for-4. But best of all, considering Lee Maye's .211 average and Billy William's woeful .130 mark, Denis Menke (2-for-4, .333 BA) continued to be rock-solid in the middle of the lineup. Fred Gladding and his 19.64 ERA were sent to Bakersfield and Dwight Siebler was called up to take his place in the bullpen.
