June 12, 1964 - Joe Torre’s eighth-inning single off Gaylord Perry drove in the winning run tonight as the Milwaukee Braves downed the San Francisco Giants at Candlestick Park, 4-3.The loss cost the Giants a chance to take first place over the Philadelphia Phillies, who lost to New York.Torre’s hit followed singles by Hank Aaron and Lee Maye and ended Perry’s string of scoreless innings at 23, all in relief.Jack Smith, who relieved Denny Lemaster with the bases loaded and none out in the seventh, got Willie Mays to ground into a double play and struck out Orlando Cepeda, limiting the damage to just one run in that inning.
