Photograph was edited for publication purposes. Photograph caption dated June 26, 1964 reads, "The big stretch - Kansas City first baseman Jim Gentile makes a wide, but vain stretch in attempting to nail the Angels' Bob Rodgers at first base. Rodgers, a one-man gang in Los Angeles' 4-3 win over the Athletics Thursday, collected two hits, scored a run and drove in another. It was his sixth inning single that scored Bob Perry with the winning margin in the Angels' ninth straight victory."
