The Welcome rain drills aerials by the associated press rain a stranger to most of the South curtailed Louisiana state football drills yesterday and he was referring of course to yesterday s game was the sort that two fighting league champions Rox corp of opener As the giants and the indians 3core it opener. Figured to put on. The feeling Here is that it set the pattern for what May be one of the greatest play offs in history. The indians Are not beaten by a Long Way but the club must have been jolted out of its complacency and know that it faces a grim Battle. Of deep satisfaction to Leo do Tocher s club was the fact that it stayed in there and finally Defeated Cleveland s Best. Also of glad tidings to the win ners was the manner in which their Relief Star the Veteran Marv gris som. Walked in there to Stop the tribe in its tracks after their starter Sal Maglie. Suddenly Felt his 37 years in the. Eighth inning and his reliever Don Lyddle had been clouded for one of the longest and most sensational Puto its Ever teen anywhere. And last but far from least it was their wonder boy and official team electrified Willie Mays who saved the game with his truly amazing Over shoulder catch of Vic Wertz towering 450-foot smash to the Centerfield Wall with two indians on base and none out in the eighth. The boy from Alabama did t get a hit off Lemon s sinking stuff but he gave notice that he will be a telling Factor All the Way with that catch and his steal of second after Lemon had walked him for the second time with nne out in the loth. The steal caused the Indian Ace to pass Hank Thompson purposely to set up a possible double play and that gave Durocher the Opportunity to insert the lefty swinging Rhodes for slumping Monte Irvin. The ironic part of it was that the same wind blowing with some velocity across the Field from left to right almost surely robbed Jim Hegan Cleveland s Catcher of a bases loaded Home run off Grissom in the eighth inning and also blew one Back off Al dark s Bat that would have Given the giants a 3-2 win after two were Down in the ninth. Both knocks clearly were headed for. The scats when they bet out. From the very Start it was Evi Dent that Maglie was Short on control even though the Veteran had Mongue. D Lyddle p 000000 Grissom.
