And for five Innings he toiled flawlessly, holding the Reds hltless. The Dodgers gave him a 1 to 0 lead for their final margin of victory In the first inning, achieved on a walk to Eddie Stanky, nn infield out and Dixie Walker's long' single. The way that Herring was pitching that run loomed bigger each inning. Came the sixth and the Dodgers filled the bases with one out: It was Herring's turn to bat but instead Manager Leo Durouhcr sent a pinch-hitter. Pete Reiser, to bat The crowd gasped In unbelief. No one could ever remcinlscv when a manager had done a thing like that before. To make matters worse Reiser struck out and the threat ended when Stanky filed out to ent the inning. Hugh Casey came on to preserve the shutout, mul Herring went sadly to the showers.
