Cubs History-July 1



July 1, 1958
Entering this game, the Cubs Tony Taylor had just one career home run.
In the Cubs 9-5 victory over the Giants, Taylor hits 2 home runs, one
an inside the park home run that  I wish I could find a video of. This
home run probably deserves an asterisk as Taylor hit a ball down the
left field line that ended up in a gutter and he was able to circle the
bases before the Giants left fielder could find the ball.
