Giants Rejoice;Rehash Series Opener

NEW 'YORK (N-Dusty Rhodes,
mighty New York Giant pinch hit-
ter whose home run in the 10th
inning won the opening game of
the 1954 World Series, confessed
after the game Wednesday it was
an accident of sorts.
"I wasn't trying for a home
run," he said.. "I was just trying
for a hit."
But what a hit - a decisive
three-run homer!
"It was the best hit I ever got
in my life," he laughed.
"Were you worried going up
there as a pinch hitter?" a re-
porter asked.
"Nope," he said flatly. "The
pitcher is the guy who worries.
He's got to get me out."
Rhodes' homer was on a curve
thrown by Bob Lemon, the Cleve-
land Indian ace.
Manager Leo Durocher of the
victorious Giants, after praising
Rhodes and Willie Mays, heaped
his affection on his pitchers.
"It was great relief pitching,"
he said. "I got just what I want-
ed." His reliefers were Don Liddle
and Mary Grissom.
IDurocher was a happy manager

after the game, but not a boastful
or elated one. Explaining he was
superstitious, he asked photogra-
phers to leave him alone which
they didn't "and take the players

NEW YORK (A) - "The longest
out and the shortest home run of
the season beat us, that's all!"
That's how Senor Al Lopez,
Cleveland's smiling-in-defeat man-
ager, summed up Wednesday's
opening World Series victory by
the New York Giants over his
American League champions.
He referred to the sensational
catch by Giant centerfielder Willie
Mays of a screaming 450-foot drive
off the bat of Vic Wertz, and the
climactic 270-foot homer with which
pinchhitter Dusty Rhodes ended the
game in the 10th.
The Indians had two aboard, the
score was tied at 2-2. Wertz blast-
ed a 2-1 pitch deep into center-
field, but Mays turned his back to
the plate, almost crashed into the
wall while making the catch, fell
to the ground, and threw on. the fly

to second base to keep every
away from the plate.

got Al Rosen on a fly with two
on and two out, and in the tenth
inning, after Wertz had opened
with a double and was sacrificed
to third, he walked Pope and Bill
Glynn intentionally. Glynn was
batting for Hegan. Grissom then
retired Lemon on a liner to White
Lockman at first base. This set
the stage for Rhodes.
The Indians had been threaten-
ing all through the late innings,
leaving a total of 13 men on base,
while Grissom escaped by the
thinnest of margins.
In the Giants 10th frame, after
Don Mueller struck out, Mays
worked Lemon for a walk. As Lem-
on threw a ball to Hank Thomp-
son, the next hitter, Mays headed
for second, sliding in under the
bouncing peg of Mickey Grasso
who had just taken up Cleveland's
catching chores.
With Mays on second, Cleve-

Giants Knot Score
The Giants tied the score in
the second inning after Cleveland
had tallied twice in the first. From{
there on it was a scoreless strug-
gle until the tenth frame.
Lemon went all the way for
Cleveland while Sal Maglie, the
Giants' starter, was relieved in the
eighth. Mary Grissom, who stop-
ped Cleveland's eighth - i n n i n g
threat, was the winning hurler.
A capacity crowd of 52,751 paid
$316,957.25 to see the contest. It
was the first extra-inning in World
Series play since Oct. 5, 1952, and
it was a real thriller.
The, second game of the series
will be played in New York today
