Berra Hits Pair; Howard, Kiwanians
Skowron Homer for Total
BROOKLYN, Oct. 10—The New York Yankees over
whelmed the Dodgers and Don Newcombe with a record-
breaking home run assault today and won the World Series,
four games to three, with a 9-0 victory.
Yogi Berra hit two homers and Bill Skowron smashed a
grand slam homer to back up superb three-hit pitching by
23-year-old Johnny Kucks.
The Yankees thus duplicated Brooklyn’s 1955 feat of
winning a seven-game series after losing the first two games.
It was the Yanks’ 17th World Series victory in 22 attempts
since 1923 and their sixth in seven series against Brooklyn.
The Dodgers took the first two games in Ebbets Field.
"-'♦‘The Yanks won the next three
j-1 I in their stadium and then
Konme Greathouse i Brooklyn squared the series
yesterday in their home park.
Today’s game was the first
breakthrough by the visiting team.
Berra, who clubbed a bases-
loaded homer off Newcombe in the
second game, hit over the right
field wall the first two times he
came to bat against Newk today,
each time with a man on base.
The seven-game series drew a
paid attendance of 345,903 with
33,782 fans watching the final
game. The net receipts for the
series were $2,185,353.59.
The four Yankee homers set a
series record of 12 by one club in
a series, breaking the mark of ten
set by the 1952 Yanks, and Berra,
with 10 tarns batted in during the
series, Smashed another record.
The Bronx Bombers got things
rolling early as Hank Bowers lined
a lead-off single into left. Bauer
stole second on Newcomb’s first
pitch to Martin . Big Newk fanned
Martin and Mantle to the pleasure
of the partisan Ebbets Field crowd,
but Berra’s drive over the right
field screen ended the rejoicing.
Berra did it again in the top of
the third. With one out Martin
rammed a single into center and
Newcombe struck out Mantle for
the second time. Yogi hit another
into the same place to make the
score 4-0, and Dodger fans began
to lose hope.
Elston Howard drove Newcombe
to the showers to open up the fifth
with his second home run in World
Series play over the score board in
right. Don Bessant came in as re
lief and lasted through the sixth,
g-iving up no runs and two hits.
Roger Craig went to the mound
for the Bums in the seventh and
Martin greeted him with a single
to left. Mantle walked and both
runners advanced on a wild pitch.
Berra was intentionally passed but
the Brooklyn strategy backfired
when Skowron drove the first pitch
into the lower left field stands for
a grand slam homer to make it 9-0.
After Howard doubled, Craig was
removed and Ed Roebuck came in
to pitch for the Dodgers.
