This Day in Giants History: September 1, 1951

Outfielder Don Mueller hits three home runs in an 8-1 Giants win over the Dodgers. Sal Maglie is the winner‚ giving up seven singles and hitting Jackie Robinson on the wrist in the third to force home the only Dodger run. New York’s Whitey Lockman gets plunked twice. Al Dark and Eddie Stanky combine in the fifth on a triple play off a liner by Pee Wee Reese. The Dodgers’ lead over the Giants is now down to six games.
