1965 Strat-o-Matic NL Replay: Marichal 2-hitter

Juan Marichal dominated the Pirates in an Opening Day 2-hitter where the only runs of the game came on an 8th Inning grand slam off the bat of Willie Mays.

Both Pirates hits were singles by Don Clendenon.

It was precisely this kind of game that got me excited for a 1965 replay in the first place. Can’t wait to see Marichal and Koufax match up later in the season!
