The St. Louis Cardinals battle Los Angeles and Cincinnati for a first-division spot
September 14, 1958

Keeping up withthis Jones isn't easy. He's Sad Sam, or, if you prefer, Toothpick, and lastweek against the Chicago Cubs he struck out his 201st batter of the 1958season, thus breaking the old St. Louis Cardinal record held by Dizzy Dean andbecoming the first NL pitcher since 1941 to strike out 200.
