Yanks Move in for Kill After 13-1 Series Victory Giants Coll on Koslo in Do-or-Die Effort; Roschi Is Stengel's Choice By JACK HAND NEW YORK, Oct. 10. (AP)—Flexing their muscles after the 13-1 slaughter at the Polo Grounds, the aroused ! Raschi (21-10) primed to face Dave Koslo (10-9) of the j Giants in the sixth World Series game at Yankee Stadium. Once more Leo Durocher's desperate Giants had their backs to the wall, a most familiar position. Trailing 3-2 in games, they couldn't afford to lose any more and the Yanks u'crc 9 to 5 favorites to close it out. in six. Groggy and numbed after a 12- i hit Yankee bombing that included | a grand slain homer by rookie Gil McDougald and a "Chinese" homer I by little Phil Rizzuto. ihe oianls j surrendered meekly yesterday.

Read Courier News Classified Ads. describe Gil McDougland, 22-ycar- ol'J infield star of the Yankees, whose grand slam home run yesterday was the key blow in the defending world champion's 13-1 romp over Ihe Ginnt.s in the fifth game of the alt-New York World Series. • "Everything he does looks wrong, but it comes out right," said Stengel. "He bats funny but he hits like heck. He's got a peculiar way of throwing but his arm is strong and accurate. He runs like a pacer but, he is fast and knows how lo run the bases. He's only n rookie but he's done as much for me as finy of my veterans." A goodly number of persons in the huge crowd that watched the Yankees grab a three-to-two gnmc lead snickered when McDougald assumed his odd stance at the plate. Those who had never seen him before gaped when young Gil got in position, his left toe pointing j straight toward the mound, his body (leaning halfway over the plate, his rear stuck out like the back bumper of car. and his bat held at a 90 degree angle from his body. Even Manager Leo Qnrocner of the Giants couldn't have thought too much of the kid since he ordered Larry Jauscn to hand an iulcn- tional base-filling pass to Johnny Mize to get at this snub-nosed, freckle-fared redhead. That was in the third inning. The centigrade thermometer was invented by Onders Celsius, a Swede, in 1742. Dark (.429). The others are sod news. Bobby Brown (,357> is showing usual October form. Rizzuto (.333) has the most hits of any Yankees, I seven. Young McDougald (.316) is ; hitting in the clutches. And joe Di- i Maei'io (.238) is making a fine re• covcry from a 12 to 0 start. The Yanks have scored 25 runs, ; the Giants 15. The Yanks have a I .241 learn average, the Giants .220. The Yanks have five home runs, the Giants two. Add two fine pitching jobs by lefty Ed Lopat and a fine comeback by Allie Reynolds and you have enough reasons. Lopat was plenty cute yesterday. sprinkling five hits, only one Giant reached second base against Ihe chunky little fellow with the easy motion after the first inning. All the Yanks celebrated except Lopat. DiMaggio had three hits, Hizzuto and Brown two each and all the others had one. The Yanks. J3-4 winners In IT previous series, haven't lost since the St. Louis Cards upset them in 1942. The Cards beat them in '26 and the Oiants m '21 and '22. All the rest have meant Yankee victory dinners.
