fAGX. •—N AUGATUCH NEWS (CONN.), MONDAY. OCT. 10, 1940 Yankees Rout Brooks, 10-6, To Win Series Joe Page Halts Dodger Rally To Preserve Win For Raschi . Joe DiMaggio, Gil Hodges Belt Home Runs The New York Yankees scored early and often yesterday to defeat the Brooklyn Dodgers 14M>. and win the world's baseball championship. It brought the World Series to a close after five games. The Yanks, who had been slight favorites, won the first game, dropped the second and camp back to win the next three in a row. Lefty Joe Page was called in to relieve starter Vic Raschi in the seventh inning after Brooklyn had scored four runs to make it a 10-6 ball game. Joe retired the side in that frame and gave up two htt;;v one walk and' no runs the rest of the way. The Yankees jumped on starter Rex Barney for two runs in the flrst inning. A pair of walks.. a wild throw and Joe DiMaggio's long fly ball accounted for one run. Bobby Brown's single brought in the second. Three more runs c&tne in, in the top of the third, whan a walk and single and another walk loaded the bases. Jerry Coleman then doubled to left, clearing' the sacks. DIAffaggio HomeTs Joe DiMaggio homered in the fojirth to give the Yanks their sixth run. Another in the fifth and three more in the sixth finished their , scoring-. 'Brooklyn scored its Jh-st run in the third, added one in th«; sixth and fourth in the •erenth. The last three, runs came to on Gil Hodges' home run, the blast which chased Raschi in fa- vogr'.qf Page.. The game was played in ' mid- suiamer weather with the temperature around 80, and was finished in twilight with the lights thrown on for the flrst time in a World Series as a ^jrecautionary move. Baseball Commissioner "Happy" Chandler ordered the lights when hp apparently feared that the fcghtine Brooks might stage a ninth-inning rafiy and pull the game out of the fire. Stengel paid tribute to the beaten Dodgers as a good ball club, pointing out that both teams had coine through gruelling pennant races, "That last week was tough for bpth clubs. They had to beat'tfie Phillies; we had the Red Sox. We had just enough to list five ganjes more, that's all," Stengel explained. "Thrills? I guess getting in the Series was nry biggest thrill. We couldn't be here if we hadn't got there. The first one is the best. "And I wantn. say." Co'-cy roared ever the noise of the mob, "That I never saw a club with greater spirit than this one We had our troubles on the field and our Injuries, but never any trouble outside. Everybody got along and the re.~mwork and flririt Was wond<r- ful." George Weiss. Yankee 'genera! manager, pushed his way through the'throng to shake Stengel's hand and Commissioner A B. Chandler and American League President William Harridge eventually got there after some rough going. But Yankee Owner Del Webb couldn't get there and juk stood at the pd#e of the crowd until It Ueran to thin out. ,St Pad's Wins KEW VOKK (A) ab r 3 2 Rizzuto. ss Hcnrich, Ib .....

'•:••• Torrington. pushed over, two quick, first period touchdowns and although the Greyhounds fought back gamely throughout, they never had a Chance. The first .Torirngton score came less than three minutes after the game started. On the-, first series of plays from scrimmage, Nauga- buck elected to try for the two feet needed for a first down. But :he try failed and Torrington took over on the Garnet's 39. On the first play Lou Zanderigo, flashy Torrington hali'back, broke through and raced to the 20. On the play, Naugatuck was penalized 15 yards and the Big Red had a first down on the five. Halfback Tom Avan- pato swept around end on the next play to score. Zanderigo's placement was good, and Torrington led' 7-0., ....;-.-..isrr.-.. t :..-. -, -. Bryant Kirkendall took the kickoff and returned it to Naugatuck's 31. The locals drove to the 42 where they were forced to kick, Torrington could make no headway cither and were also forced to kick. Then the Raiders received another break, when on first down, a Naugatuck pass was intercept- 3d giving Torrington a first down on Naugatuck's 40. Three line plays netted seven yards and with fourth and three coming up on the 33, Zan- lerlgo ,swfept around his left end ^ind, went all the way for the score. His" try for placement was wide, but Torrington led, 13-0. Naugatuck drove out of their own territory ,. for the first time iarly in the second quarter, but the drive stalled when quarterback Bob DelVecchio intercepted a pass :>n Torrington's 44. The Big Red irove to Naugaiuck's 33, but two ocnaities and a 10 yard loss inflicted by Eddie White, who tackled fullback Andy Basile on an attempted pas, put tr.u Red back on their own 40 from there they were for<">d to kick. Alan Crosswait returned the mm r'rom the 25 to the Naugatuck (0.

The locals took Torrington'a kickoff on the 29 and drove to the Torrington 30 as the quarter ended. Faced with last down and 13 yards to go for a first down at that point, substitute back Jimmy McCann, a sophomore who had borken into his first game, threw a pass straight dwon to middle to end Billy Matos, who took it and was tackled immediately on the 14. Charlie Alegi and Manny Matos carried to the eight in two plays and then McCann plowed his way to the two yard line. The drive ended there abruptly, however, when a Torrington lineman intercepted a Naugatuck pass on the goE.! line, and was tackled on the one. Torrington drove out to their 19 where they were forced to kick, with the Garnet again taking over, this time on Torrington's 15. Alegi, Rabtoy ana McCann alternated to bring the ball to the Torrington 19. A mixup in the locals' backfield resulted in Rabtoy being spilled on the 24. After a pass by Srosswait went incomplete, McCann dropped back and flipped to Alegi on yie seven and Charlie went into tho end zone for the Naugatuck touchdown. Alegi's placement split the uprights and the Garnet trailed, 19-7. After the kickoff, Torrington tailed to gain and punted to tho Naugatuck 40. They Greyhounds had time for one pass before the game ended. The tilt was one. of the roughest seen at the local field in a long, long time. Torrington's play was featured by dirty football and the visitors drew four major penalties, losing a. total of 80 yards by penalties altogether.
