We play at 1:30 pm. That was Manager Leo Duro- *•— cher's reaction as soon as he learner late yesterday that Brooklyn had won a H-lnnfng. 9-8 thriller from the Phils In Philadelphia. "Jim Hearn is my pitcher," he added after a moment's thought "Everybody else, except Larry Jansen and Sol Mnglle, will be In the bullpen. Beyond that I don't know. It will be a day by day proposition." The disappointing news of Philadelphia's failure to beat the Dodgers, which would have enabled the Giants to win their first flag since 1937. came while Durocher was seated In the diner of the train bearing the victorious Giants back home from Boston. The Giants had climaxed a sensational drive by defeating the Braves, 3-2. to wind up the season with seven straight victories and 37 of their last 44. "ICs All Over" "It's all over." said Coach Herman Franks sadly. "Those guys won. Robinson homered In the nth. We got to do It again tomorrow." When the players looked at Franks, a reputed prankster, in disbelief, the usually Jovial lieutenant said in a very serious meln: "Honest, fellows, I ain't Joolln'. The Dodgers won It." You could see the terrific letdown in the faces of the athletes Suddenly, their dinner lost Its taste Several shoved aside their plates. The others continued to eat In silence. Eddie etanky, who had been Ite- tenJnsr Intently, drained hfs cup of coffee, arose slowly from the table and walked out of the diner.
