They were the victims o[ his 5 lo 0 no-liit triumph •t Ebbets Field yesterday, the fii ,t to be pitched by a Dodger hurli" since James (Text Cnrlelon stopped Cincinnati without n safe blow In April of 1940. There was drama in the fact that Head was out Miere nl all. Only • few short weeks ai;o in .spring training, his arm twinged with pain and there were anxious moments before he knew whether the soreness might end his baseball career forever. Only four Boston players got on base, three by walks and one by an error. Only one, Carve! (Duma; Rowcll. reached second. He was »fe on Pee Wee Reese's miscue «n<\ moved up on a sacrifice in _____ . the fifth.

"I got a little worried when I walked Workman in the,ninth, but everything worked - ; out. I was using a slider and •low stuff mostly. Boy, what a thrill. And incidentally, the Rickey in my boy's name has nothing to do with my boss, Dodger president Branch Rickey."
