Getting you caught up on yesterday’s VEB happenings

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Here is what went down yesterday at Viva El Birdos:

Today in Cardinals history: June 27, 1934

The temperature reaches 115 degrees at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis. Dizzy Dean leaves the game with two out and the score tied 7 - 7 in the top of the 9th. Reliever Jim Mooney retires Mel Ott, and when Bill DeLancey homers in the bottom of the inning to win the game, Dean is given credit for the win, his 12th of the year, though he wasn’t the pitcher of record when the winning run scores. As on the 24th, Mike Haley, the official scorer who had been overruled earlier that day, is the scorer and gives the win to Dean. Taking no chances, he asks John Heydler to review his decision and Heydler agrees.
