Ruffing Allows
7 Hits, Drives
Home 3 Runs
Terry Uses Three Hurlers;-
Bartell And Ott Account
For Giants' Single Run
YANKEE STADIUM, New York,
Oct. 7.-(P)-The world champion
Yankees today exploded the last thin
vestiges of the myth that they can
be beaten by good left-handed pitch-
ing.
Simultaneously and by the charac-
teristic strategy of the booming base-
hit they sgellacked the Giants for the
second straight day by the same score,
8 to 1, and moved majestically in the
direction of their second straight
world series conquest at the expense
of their neighboring rivals.
Start An Early Attack
The Yankees gave towering, Cliff
Melton the same rough treatment this
afternoon that they handed to the re-
nowned Carl Hubbell the day before.
The only difference was that they
got their attack under way quicker
and spread it out over three innings,
instead of just one.
They drove the rookie southpaw of
the Giants from the box in the fifth
inning, routed Harry Gumbert in the
ixth, and coasted home comfortably
behind the effective pitching of their
burly right-hander, Charley (Red)
BRuffing.
Was Real Hero
While the Yankees were blasting
an even dozen hits off the combined
pitching of Melton, Gumbert and
pick Coffman, Ruffing scattered the
Giants' seven hits, struck out eight
batsmen, and squelched a last-inning
;.ally in which the Giants filled the
bases, with two out.
Ruffing not only registered his first
vorld series triumph since 1932,
meantime making amends for two
ralse starts against the Giants a year
ago, but his bat struck the most de-
cisive blows for the world champions.
Hopes Gone After Fourth
The big right-hander, most stub-
)orn holdout in the majors last
ypring after demanding an extra $1,-
000 for his hitting ability, drove home
three of the Yankees' eight runs
with a pair of rousing hits. His first
blow climaxed the Yankee uprising
against Melton in the fifth, drove in
kwhat proved to be the winning run,
and knocked the gangling southpaw
from the box. Ruffing's second hit
was a two-bagger against the left-
field barrier that brought two mates
,across, in the sixth, and knocked
Gumbert off the mound.
The Giants, as in the first game,
)had taken a one-run lead, produced
in the opening frame by Dick Bar-
tell's flukey two-bagger and Mel Ott's
line single to right, only to have their
,pitching defense crack up under the
explosive power contained in all the
Yankee bats.
National League hopes lasted only
four innings this afternoon, one less
than the day before. The Yankees
scored twice in the fifth, four times
in the sixth, and twice more in the
seventh to turn the game into a rout.
