Charlie Grimm League Recaps

Brooklyn 5 Pittsburgh 2

Brooklyn is now 14-2 with a nine game winning streak and a six game lead in the National League.

Dodgers ace Russ Davey went eight innings for his fourth win of the season (4-0) giving up 10 hits and two runs striking out 8 and did not walk a batter.

Davey's ERA is now 1.06, and he has not given up a homerun in 34 innings pitched, opponents are batting just .185 against him. He has two complete games and one complete game shutout thus far.

Broolyns path to winning this season has been good hitting for power, good pitching and defense and scoring early in games. They did that in this one to the letter scoring two runs off Pittsburgh's starting pitcher Curt McDonald (losing pitcher 2-1 4IP 9H 4R/4ER 3BB/3SO).

In the 1st inning Red Joss singled with one out. Harvey Ferguson grounded out to second but Joss was able to advance. Bill Mashore's two out groundball single to centerfield scored Joss with the first run. Bill Hicks singled just out of the reach of first baseman Brian Aguayo with Mashore advancing to thirdbase. Right fielder Jim Kinzy's throw was to second base. Walt Ramsey walked to load the bases. Hugo Gonzalez singled past Arguaya driving in Mashore. Allen struck out to end the inning. 2-0 Brooklyn on four hits and the bases were left loaded.

Brooklyn added a run in the 3rd inning. McDonald walked Ferguson who stole second as Mashore fanned. Ferguson scored on Bill Hicks single to right field.

3-0 Brooklyn.

The Dodgers made it 4-0 in the 4th on Buck Thomas' one out single. Thomas went to third on Joss' second hit of the game and came in on a ground out by Harvey Ferguson.

Luis Robinson singled and scored Pittsburgh's first run in the 4th inning to make it 4-1. Keith Adams doubled and scored in the 7th . Davey made a throwing error and Herbie Crespo drove in the run with a single.

Brooklyn had added a run in the top of the 7thon a two out doublke by Hugo Gonzalez.

Final score; Dodgers 5 Pittsburgh 2.
