for their third straight tomor
row with the veteran Bobo New
gom probably against Brook
Ivns Joe Hatten, played win
ning ball right from the first
inning, under a warm sun that
beamed down from cloudless
skies. ,,
Stirnweiss, big man in the at
»*rk with a triple and two sin
gles in four official times up,
gave them a one run lead in
the first when he singled, bar

Reiser and Walker. Henrich
popped to make it two away but
Lindell, moved up to third
place in the batting order, paid

belted a triple on which Reiser
missed a shoe string catch after

Lindell followed with a ground
rule double which bounced into
the left field boxes. With Di
Maggio up, Lombardi threw one
ball and then headed for the
showers, Greg replacing him.
Lindell held at second as Di
Maggio . grounded out but
George McQuinn whistled a sin
gle to Center to send him home.
Johnson grounded to Gregg
then and, as the pitcher tried
to force McQuinn at second,
Stanky dropped the ball for the
first error of the series. Yogi
Berra fanned to end the inning
but the miscue had shaken the
beloved Bums.
The Yanks added another run
to go ahead, 6 to 2, in the sixth
when Reynolds contributed to
his own cause with the first of
his two hits and two runs. He
opened the inning with a
scorching single to left, moved
along as Stirnweiss walked and
Henrich sacrificed and scored
on indell’s long fly to Herman
The Dodgers, shaken and
stumbling, tried vainly to rally
in the seventh. They came up
with two hits and Berra com
mitted the only Yankee error to
date — an over throw to first.
But they couldn’t score. In the
clutch, Reynolds’ fast one had
them popping away.
Behrman came in as the
Yanks seventh opened and
that’s when the Bombers put in
the clincher of four hits and a
Dodger error which added up to
four runs. McQuinn led .off with
a single to left and took second
on a wild pitch. Johnson follow
ed with a single to center scor
ing McQuinn and went on to
third base as the ball rolled
through the groping, bewildered
Reiser for a two-base error.
Rizzuto popped out and Berra
was purposely passed to get to
Reynolds. But Allie promptly
beat out a grounder down the
first base line, scoring Johnson
and sending Berra to third.
That was all for Behrman and
Barney went to the firing line
for the Dodgers.
Stirnweiss greeted him with a
ground ball which should have
been an easy out but after Rob
inson fielded it, he found that
nobody had covered first and he
stood there with the ball as Ber
ra scored and Reynolds went to
Reynolds went to third after
Henrich flied to Reiser and
scored on a wild pitch. The
Dodgers retired the side then,
but it was far too late.
So a lone Brooklyn run in the
ninth was little consolation. But
for the record, Herrr.anski
walked, went to third on
Reese’s single and scored as
Jorgensen forced Reese at sec

Reece, in receiving no chances
at short, tied the record held
jointly by Dave Bancroft of the
1915 Phils and Joe Boley of the

consolation and the only hope
for the Dodgers was that they
