Huskers Win Big 7 Opener BlackwelL Allie Erskine Pitch Fifth Series Chucks Victory Johnny Mize Batting Hero NEW YORK (INS)—Ewell Blackwell of the New York' Yanks and Carl Erskine of the Brooklyn Dodgers lock up in a mound duel today in the vital fifth game of the 1952 World Series. With one of the most gifted' performances of his stirring ba ........... )aseball life, the Yankees’ Allie Reynolds triumphed over Brooklyn’s Joe Black Saturday, 2-0, to knot up the Series at two games apiece. He fired a fierce stream of fastballs and jagged hooks past 10 Brooklyn strikeout victims to the consternation of the foe and the thunderclap approval of most of the 71,787 fans in sun-splashed Yankee Stadium. Only an outpouring of tremendous talent could have beaten Joe Black. Joe gave up only three hits during the seven innings he worked—but one of them was fatal. • • • MICKEY MANTLE gave Allie his un-needed other run, and provided it with all the hustle and Dustle of youth, as compared to the ponderous maturity of Mize’s efforts Relief Pitcher Clyde Rutherford was aptly named so far as Mickey was concerned. He had gone hitless against Black all day, and Rutherford’s stuff was indeed a relief. The crackling young Yank swung from the heels and hit a! tremendous triple over Duke: Snider’s head in deep center, to lead off the Yankee eighth. Mickey was a sight to see. spinning around those bases like B deer. Snider finally eaught the ball as It hobbled around In the dirt more than 450 feet from the plate, and heaved It to Peewee Reese, who was out on the grass. Mickey charged Into third with a cloud-raising slide, catapulted upright immediately when Reese’s relay streaked over Third Baseman Bob Morgan’s head, and sped home.
