Best Answer

In the previous game he hurt his shoulder diving into second base on a pickoff attempt. Milwaukee infielder Red Schoendeinst had to dive for the ball and he fell on Mantle's shoulder. Mickey completed the game but couldnt bat or field and was scratched for game five., The Braves won 1-0 and went on to win the series.
