April 28, 1963: Boyer's 2 Big Blasts Lead The Charge In L.A.

     On April 28, 1963, Ken Boyer led the way in a 15 hit attack with two home runs in a 9-5 victory over the Dodgers in Los Angeles. The victory capped off a series sweep, and extended the Cardinals winning streak at Dodger Stadium to seven straight games. The Cardinals enjoyed great success in L.A., since the start of the '62 season they had won more games there than any other stadium they had visited. Unfortunately the streak would come to an end the next time the team headed to Chavez Ravine. Boyer knocked 24 balls out of the yard during that '63 season, and he led the team with 111 RBIs. On that day in L.A. he most definitely made his presence known .
