Baseball X-RAY

The Brooklyn Dodgers have won nine out of 11 since the All-Star Game. Largely responsible for this surge are Duke Snider (above, left), who during this period hit eight home runs, including the 300th of his career, and Gil Hodges, who just tied Rogers Hornsby's N.L. lifetime record of 12 grand slammers and drove home his 1,000th run.
