Yankees v Pirates: Game Three of the 1960 World Series [VIDEO]

Think happy thoughts Pirate fans.  Sure Daniel McCutchen and Hayden Penn got thumped today. But so did the World Champion 1960 Pittsburgh Pirate team.   The game was a little bit more important, it was the World Series. 

It was game three and the ceremonial first pitch was tossed by Ted Williams.  Yankee left hander Whitey Ford pitched  a shutout and the Bombers cruised to a 10-0 win giving them a 2-1 advantage in the Series.

Big hitters were Bobby Richardson who crushed a grand slam staking the Yanks to a 6-0 early lead.  (He would set a World Series record with six RBI.) Mickey Mantle hit his 14th career home run.
