August 27, 1964 at Municipal Stadium in Kansas City the Los Angeles Angels beat the Kansas City Athletics 7-1. George Brunet pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing 1 run on 6 hits, striking out 6. Bob Lee pitched the last 2 1/3 innings, earning his 16th save. The Angels got home runs from Lenny Green, Joe Adcock and Willie Smith in the game to lead the Angels scoring. Willie Smith was traded to the Angels after the 12th game of the 1964 season from the Detroit Tigers for Julio Navarro. Smith was a pitcher converted to the outfield when he came to the Angels and only had 8 Major League at-bats before getting 359 with the Angels in 1964, hitting 11 home runs with a .301 average. Smith also pitched in 15 games that year, striking out 20 in 31.2 innings with a 2.84 ERA. Smith was sold to the Cleveland Indians after the 1966 season.
