Photograph article dated July 16, 1962 partially reads, "Other than being smitten on the brow with a decreased mackerel, there is no blow quite so degrading as having the humble Washington Senators rise up and bury you by a large score. And while Los Angeles Angels manager Bill Rigney does not necessarily recommend it as a steady medication, he's at least willing to believe the 10-4 defeat laid on his pennant contenders by the Nats Sunday afternoon at Chavez Ravine will have some positive benefits. The miniature massacre occurred after Eli Grba had heroically pitched his first complete game of the season, giving up no earned runs and beating Washington, 5-1, in the first half of a doubleheader." Photograph caption reads, "Eli Grba (1) watches Angels bat - Manager Rigney smiles as homer puts Grba ahead to stay."
