Their first port of call is the Yankee Stadium. The Browns, boasting a, 1-3 record, have what many believe will be the rookie of the year in Jim Rivera, 29-year- old outfielder up from Seattle. Lefty Bob Cain (2-0) has been selected lo pitch against the Yanks' Vic Raschi (2-0) today. Cain, Yankee tamer of note, has allowed only one run in 18 innings.
