The scorecard from the game

The scorecard from the game

On this day 48 years ago, Dick Malmstrom pitched a 2-hitter with 13 strikeouts in a 9-0 victory over St. Paul’s.

Steven Vellines (2 hits/2 RBIs) paced the offense while upping their season batting averages to .353 and .440, respectively. All Malmstrom did was pitch his latest in a string of masterful performances that season.

His dominant performance against St. Paul’s was his third shutout of the season. To that point he had yielded just 22 hits in his six starts, while striking out 62, and had an ERA of 0.19. Yet, he had still not pitched his finest game of the season; a 1-hit wonder in a 1-0 win over Horace Mann on May 5th.

He would finish one of the best individual pitching seasons in school history with a 10-1 record, a 0.76 ERA, 7 earned runs, 35 hits, 108 strikeouts and a WHIP of 0.73. His mastery on the mound helped the blue and white finish with a 17-2 record and the only Ivy League Championship in the history of the program.
