M 5/23 Denver L 4-9 14-21 LP-Cisco 0-2.  Denver manager Charlie Metro plays the game under protest (which is withdrawn after the Bears win the game) after a 6th-inning play.  With Yastrzemski on first, Spencer "Red" Robbins hit a grounder to third, and the Bears turned what appeared to be a double play.  However, after calling Yastrzemski out at second, umpire Dick Gustavo noted that second-baseman Jake Wood had been pulled off the bag by the throw and called Yastrzemski safe.  Yastrzemski had already started for the Minneapolis dugout and, upon learning he hadn't been called out, stopped at first and was permitted to remain there by the umpires.  Metro based his protest on the contention that Minneapolis coaches killed the play before it was over by rushing onto the field.

On October 27, 1960, Calvin Griffith announced that he would be moving the Washington Senators to Minnesota for the 1961 season. While this marked the return of major league baseball to Minnesota (the state was first represented in the major leagues by a St. Paul team that played 9 games in the Union Association in 1884), it also marked the end of the Minneapolis Millers and St. Paul Saints.
