The blokes in the red blazers heard what the boxing boys call the doleful decimal--and with some finality--when the Dodgers took three straight on their last invasion of Sportsman's Park, skyrocketing their lead to 10 games. T^HE plucky Cards bounced back ·*· nicely while the Brooks fell off, yet were definitely dismissed by the majority' when they dropped two games at Ebbets Field the other day, which put the" Brook- lyns six-and-a-half lengths in the van. ! In the clubhouse before the third j game of the recent set in Flatbush, Eddie Dyer addressed his athletes "I can't bet on ball games," the manager said, "but if I did I'd bet you'd win this one. You're on the floor and you have to win this one to get off the floor. You're that kind of a ball club." - "I meant it, too," says~tnanager Dyer. "This is the gamest of all Cardinal clubs." Dyer's Demons plastered thc , Superbas in thc third game of thc ,1 series, won the finale on Whitey ' Kurowski's home run in the 12th, , after big Ralph Branca had shut j them out and held them to one hit , for eight and two-third innings.
