Facing the prospect of going down 3 games to 2, the Dodgers scored early, then capped off a three-run 5th inning with a home run by Duke Snider to put the Dodgers ahead, 4-0. In the bottom half of the inning, the Yankees came right back, scoring five runs including a three-run blast by Johnny Mize. Brooklyn came back and tied it in the top of the 7th, and that's the way it stayed until the top of the 11th, the the Dodgers scored a run. Carl Erskine - who stayed in the game despite the Yankees' 5-run fifth, pitched all 11 innings, retiring the last 19 batters in a row, including Mantle, Mize and Berra in the bottom of the 11th.
Ticket stub is in FAIR condition with some wrinkling, visible soiling and age-related toning. Despite this, the wrinkling is primarily near the perforation, and the stub presents well despite the grade.
