He had laced one high off the screen in right field In the fourth for a double, but didn't score. Just getting the range of course. Black, who had slarted only two »mes at the tail end of the National Leaue pennant race but appeared In 54 in relief, said he hnd pitched better ball than against the Yankees. "I've been faster, I know. Bu my curve ball was comin in Iheri pretty well and I had control couldn't ft my fast ball up aainsi the lefthanders. I don't know why "Nervous? Was I nervous?

They got more home runs than we did." He was high on the sparklin fieldln of Billy Cox, Ihe Doders' third baseman. "There's not many players in all baseball history who've been abie to field better than him." But Brooklyn homers did the damage, and Reynolds admilted what all pitchers know about Ebbets Field. "You can't make any mistakes In this little ball park." he said.
