(UP) — Brooklyn rclicl pitchers hnvc gained 19 of the team's 45 victories this season nnd for more than one reason that seemed today to bo the answer to the team's fast pace In the National League race. It means first of all that the Dodgers h»vc a knack of winning ball games in late Innings. It means also thai manager' Leo Dmochcr lias the most uncacny knack of getting relief pitchers into the game at the right time ol any pilot In the business. The 19 victories and seven defeats by Ihe Dodger rescue corps for n percentage of .731 Is better than the overall Dodger percentage of .CM on 45 wins and 23 defeats. And no other team in either lenuue is close to the Dodgers in relief victories. Tlie Cubs are second with a 14 and 7 record while tlie Red Sox in tlie. American League are third with a mark of 11 and 4. The Red Sox percentage of .133 on relief victories is a shade higher than that of the Dodgers, but Boston rescue artists aren't called on nearly as often. The Dodgers applied their standard formula for victory In beating the Phils at Brooklyn, 3 to 2, yesterday for (heir seventh straight Blylhcvlllc hitter with one hit h officially one time at bat.
