Brooklyn 3 Robinson 3-3 RBI Caught stealing home in the Ninth Inning
NY Giants 1 Mize 1-4 Homerun Run RBI
The Giants got a great effort from starter Ray Poat but could not muster more than 1 run on another Mize solo homer. Jackie Robinson took the start at first base for the Dodgers. Robinson was thrown out trying to steal home with the bases loaded in the Ninth Inning and the Dodgers ahead, 3-1.
The Giants scored only 3 runs in the series - 2 on Johnny Mize homeruns. The Dodgers scored only 5 runs in the series. Jackie Robinson was on fire at the plate but only contributed 1 RBI. Brooklyn's starting pitching looks like it could be strong all year but their bats are going to need to help them. The Giants were a scrappy team in this series defensively but their hitting has also got tot improve if they hope to have a decent season.
