Rookie Gerald Staley made his first start a winning one as he outpitclied Steve Nagy in a second game due! in which Miisial made three more hils to boos*, his average to .312. The Dodgers won a game they startc'ci 3y days ago at Philadelphia, 7 to 5. then took a second comcst, 5 to 7. in a "semi-doubleheader." In the opener they completed a disputed game which was ordered played out by President Ford Frick after it was called, on , when the Pennsylvania curfew tolled with Brooklyn ahead 5 to 4 in the seventh. They made two more lallies while Andy Semiriick hht -a ninth inning homer for the Phils. In the regulation contest, three World Series probables, Ralph Branca. Harry Taylor, and Hank Behniian pitche"! sturdily against the Phils, but it remained for Willard Ramsdel to win the game in 10 innings when rookie Gil Hodges sparked a three ran extra Inuiny: with a two-tally triple. Jack Kramer, despite the fact, that he had the cheers of only 315 lans lo cheer him on. pitched the Browns to a 4 lo 3 victory over the Indians at St. Louis ill a rare weekday afternoon game. The defeat kept the Indians in fourth place nnd lessened their hopes of overtaking tl-.e second place tigers, two games ahead, or the third place Fled Sox, one game in front of them.
