4) Hank Green berg, Tigers, 1945. His ninth-inning grand slam on Sept. 30—two months after he had returned from four years' Army service—clinched the pennant in the season finale.
5) Dick Sisler, Phillies, 1950. Saved the Whiz Kids from becoming the Fizz Kids.
BEST PITCHING PERFORMANCES
1) Addie Joss, Indians, 1908. Threw a perfect game on Oct. 2 against the White Sox when Cleveland, Chicago and Detroit were all within half a game of one another.
2) Dizzy and Paul Dean, Cardinals, 1934. Dizzy threw a three-hitter and Paul a no-hitter in a Sept. 21 doubleheader against the Dodgers to move St. Louis up on the Giants. The Cards won the pennant on the final day.
3) Mike Scott, Astros, 1986. No-hit San Francisco to clinch the National League West title on Sept. 25. "If we'd had 23 innings," said Giant Greg Minton, "we still wouldn't have gotten a hit."
4) Allie Reynolds, Yankees, 1951. Pitched a no-hitter against Boston in the first game of a Sept. 28 doubleheader. Yanks sewed up the pennant in the nightcap.
5) Sal Maglie, Dodgers, 1956. Purchased from the Indians in May after 6� years as a Giant, the Barber won 13 games for erstwhile archrival Brooklyn, including a Sept. 25 no-hitter against Philadelphia. The Dodgers beat out the Braves for the pennant by one game.
