Jan 4, 1967:Houston trades outfielder Lee Maye and a minor leaguer to the Cleveland Indians for outfielder Jim Landis, catcher Doc Edwards and a minor leaguer. Landis hits .252 with one homer in part-time duty before being shipped to Detroit in mid-season.
Jun 19, 1967:Julio Gotay, filling in at second base while Joe Morgan is on military leave, goes 5-for-5 but the Cardinals outlast Houston, 5-4, in eleven innings. His last hit plates Bob Aspromonte to send the game to overtime. Roger Maris hits the game-winner off Barry Latman. Curt Flood ends it with a rare outfield unassisted double play, snaring a sinking liner by Bob Lillis then trotting to second base to double off Jim Landis.
