The Jackets were knocked off Weirdest Series Ends By JOE REICHLER PITTSBURGH (AP) — the weirdest of all World Series comes to an end today in the seventh and payoff game with New York's Yankees once again a 13 to 10 favorite to defeat the Pittsburgh Pirates, just as they were at the start of the activity eight days ago. Vernon Law, who defeated the Yankees in the first and fourth games although he failed to last nine innings in either, was Danny ' Murtaugh's hope .to bring Pittsburgh iti first world championship in 35 years. The big right- hander, who won 20 games during the regular season, also sought to become the llth three-time series winner and the first since Milwaukee's Lew Burdette tamed the Yankees thrice in 1957. i Casey Stengel, seeking his eighth world championship, as usual, wasn't sure of his starting pitcher. In the clubhouse Wednes- FIGHTS day following Whitey Ford's steam-rolling 12-0 shutout, his_second whitewash- of the Pirates in four days, the 70-year-old professor who may be masterminding his last game as Yankee manager, shouted above the din: "I may pitch (Bob) Turley, then again it may be (Bill) Stafford or it could even be (Bobby) Shantz. I haven't made up my mind yet. I'll let you all know before the game tomorrow." Turley was credited with the second game victory last Thurs day, the Yankees' first o£ the series. He needed relief help in the ninth inning. Stafford pitched five scoreless relief innings, allowing only three hits in the fifth gam loss last Moday.

Mur- augh benched Dick Stuart and Gino Cimoli, inserting Rocky Nelon at first base and Bob Skinner n left field. Stuart has hit safely only three times in 20 at bats and Cimoli has four of 19. Neither has an extra base hit. Skinner, the teams' best left- handed hitter, jammed his .left thumb in the first game and sat out the next four games. His finger is not fully healed but the Pirates are crying for more punch. They've made only 49 hits in six games, only 12 for extra bases. Bill Mazeroski has the only home run.
