W«4 deciding game o( the 1947
Serin end for a few momenta In
the eeeond inning it)
though there might be celebration!
la Klutbinh tonight.
The eeeond man up tor the Dod
gera in the eoeend waa Gene Her
maneki. He greeted Pitcher Shea
of the Yanks with a triple off of
the right field wall, and Edward*
and Furillo immediately followed
with two clean •Ingles which acor
ed Hemanakl That wae all for
Shea, and he was replaced by Bill
Bevena, a righthander.
The Dodgers were not through
however. Jorgensen lined a ground
nite double into right aCoring Ed
wards and no doubt sending chills
up and down many a loyal
Yaakoe’a spine. At this point
though Bevens rose to the occasion
and retired the side with no far
ther damage
After scoring one run in the sec
ond the Yankees came to life and
pounced on the Dodger’* starting
pitcher, GregL in the fourth Uk
ing a 3-2 lead that they never re
linquished. They added another run
in the 9th and one in the 7th to
ice the game away. The Dodger*
used fiv* pitchers in a futile ef
fort to halt the Yankee hitting
hut had not too much success.
-Probably the outstanding player
on the field was Pitcher Joe Page
of the Yankees who allowed the
Dodgers only one hit after he rn
tared the game at the start of the
6th Inning. Had It not been for
him the Heries flag might he in
