The Yankees had won the first two games of the series in the Bronx, so this was a vital game for Brooklyn. The teams combined for 26 hits, and the Dodgers survived a pair of New York homers - a 2-run blast by Joe DiMaggio and a solo shot from Yogi Berra. Carl Furillo came off the bench to drive in a pair of runs for the Dodgers, and Eddie Stanky also knocked home a pair. The Dodgers erupted for six runs in the second inning, and Gene Hermanski drove home the eventual game winner with a single in the fourth. The Yankees kept chipping away at the lead, but Hugh Casey pitched 2 2/3 innings of shutout relief to earn Brooklyn's first win of the series. The program includes a feature article on the Dodgers, individual photos and bios of all of the players on both teams and a great cartoon feature on the Brooklyn club. The cover has a great photo montage of scenes from around Brooklyn with the Brooklyn Bridge displayed in the center.
There's also a song sheet included with the lyrics to the rousing Dodgers' anthem - Follow the Dodgers. The New York starters - Snuffy Stirnweiss, Tommy Henrich, Johnny Lindell, DiMaggio, George McQuinn, Billy Johnson, Phil Rizzuto, Sherm Lollar and starting pitcher Bobo Newsom.
