PAGE •—NAUGATUCK NKW8 (CONN.), FRIDAY, OCT. 7, 1IMD Dodgers Edge Yankees, 1-0, To Even World Series Roe Blanks Bombers On Six Hits; Hodges Drives In Run Third Game This Afternoon At Ebbets Field (By United Presi) •Southpaw Preacher Roe, the clutch pitcher who kept Brooklyn pennant hopes alive all season, got the Dodgers even with the New J York Yankees yesterday. Brooklyn beat the Yankees, 1-0, as the Dodgers squared the World Series at one game apiece. The batting hero for the Dodgers was Gil Hodgea, the big first sac k'e r. Hodges came through with a two-out single that scored Jackie Robinson f ro m third with, the lone run of the game. But the man who got the loudest cheer from the 70,053 fans jamming Yankee Stadium was Preacher Roe, a southpaw from the backwoods of Arkansas. Preacher is a tall skinny lefthander who enjoys two things, smoking big black cigars and pitching money games. Yesterday was a big one. Another Yankee win would have put the Dodgers two down, and virtually out of 'the series. But Roe bad it. The Yankee sluggers had Preacher in trouble six innings but he wiggled out everytime with one of the greatest pitching performances under pressure ever seen in a World Series same. .

Preacher scattered six Yankee hits beautifully and didn't give up a •ingle walk. Bears Down He real'-/ bore down .n the eighth and ninth innings, when it looked as though this learn, tabbed the-"team of destiny," might break the game wide open. ..In the eighth, Yankee Manager Caaey Stengel decided it was. time to make a move. Charlie Silvcra, working behind the plate for the injured Larry Berra. was to open for the Yanks. But Casey reached into the dugout and. came up with Johnny Mize, the "ex-New York Giant slugger. This was Johnny's first World Series appearance in his major league career, a long one which began 14 years ago. And Mize didn't waste any time 1 inafttig -Stengel's •trategy look smart: "H« 'swung at the first pitch, and it fell in for a single. Once again Stengel went lor the strategy. He thumbed in George Stirnweiss to run for the slow-footed Mize. and ordered Bobby Brown to bit. for pitcher Vic Raschi. . Fans Brown Brown was the boy who had • hree straight pinch hits against the Dodgers in the 1947 series. Luck wasn't riding with Bobby: Roe got him on a called third strike, and Stirnweiss held on to lirst. Up came little Phi! Rizzuto, the Yankee shortstop. Phil dumped a bunt along: third base line. Roe scooted over to field it, whirled •round to throw but dropped it.. This was the big break. And the Dodger fans shuddered. Only one out. And Yankee runners on first and second. But nothing bothers the slim southpaw from Ashflat, Arkansas . — not even Tommy Hen-ich, the Yankee who broke up yesterday's game, and who was next up. Roe worked on Henrich until the count went 3-2. He came in with a low sweeping curve which Tommy cot wood on, but not enough. The Brooklyn left-fielder gathered in the fly, -and that Yankee threat was snuffed. •There was more to come. Joe DiMaggio, first up for the Yanks' in the ninth, proved himself a »reat money player again, by beating but a alow roller to third. But Roe wouldn't let him get around to borne plate. Preacher struck out Johnny Lan- detl, forced Billy Johnson to pop *o -"jecond, and clinched it wli«n Jerry Coleman lofted one to right Jleld. : It .was a tough loss for 'the Yankees and righthander Vic Rasehl. But it was even a greater win for the Dodgers and Roe. . .The game also set a new World Series record. This was the first time in the 46-year history of the writs t>at two 1-0 games have been played in succession. And Dodger .fans will remember this one for the next 46-vears to come. Injured Seventy-thousand and 53 fans »aw Roe win. the rest of the Roe story unfolded in the dressing room. ' -Preacher showed newsmen and photographers his right, or glpye, hand. It is the hand Johnny LJn- dell's line drive hit in the fourth Inning. -Q One nail was torn off! And Roe admitted that the aching hand gave him as much trouble the rest of tho. same as the Yankee batters. ."The trainer had to "drill a hole through the nail on my index finger," Roe told newsmen, "so the blood would flow out. I was sick to my stomach the last two innings." Even without an injured hand. Roe had plenty of season to be sick in the eighth inning. The Yankees had runners on second and first with only one put. And up to the plate walked Tommy' Henrich, the New York first baseman whose homer had -whipped ^the Dodgers yesterday. * "My knees were really knock- Totals 31 1 7 27 11 2 New York (A) ab r h o a e Rizzuto ss ........ 3 0 1 0 6 0 Henrich Ib 4 0 0 11 1 0 Bauer rf 4 0 1 1 0 0 DiMaggio cf 4 0 1 1 0 0 Lindell If 4 0 0 2 1 1 Johnson 3b 4 0 1 0 2 0 Coleman 2b 4 0 1 6 3 0 Silvera c 2 0 0 G 0 0 Niarhos c 0 0 0 0 0 0 Raschi p 2 00 0 0 0 Page p 0 00,0 0 0 a-Mize 1 0 1 0 0 0 b-Brown 1 00 0 0 0 x-Stim\veiss 0 0 0 0 0 0 Totals 33 0 6 27 13 1 a—Singled for SHyera in 3th. b—Struck out for Raschi in Sth. e—Popped out for Hermanski in 9th. z—Ran for Mize in Sth.

"Ole Pee Wee said, "Preach, let's yon and me talk about something.' "Man, I was so surprised that I asked him, 'Okay, what do you want to talk about?' " Roe looked around, then continued, "So we wind up talking about hunting and fishing. How do you like that?" _ Today's Game Today's" game could be another of those spine - tingling pitchers' duels. The Yankees will call on southpaw Tommy Byrne, who probably has as much stuff as anyone in baseball. Byrne has only one drawback, he's as wild as they come. For the Dodgers, it will be either Ralph Branca or Rex Barney both young right-handers. Franca and Barney are like the little girl in the nursery rhyme. When they're good, they're very, very eood. And when they're bad, well Yankee fans are hoping they'll be bad.
