With the momentum on the Yankees' side, Brooklyn needed a big game, and thanks to Johnny Podres, they got one. Podres scattered 7 hits in a complete game victory, striking out 6 and having just one shaky inning, the Yankees scoring 2 runs in the 2nd, including Mickey Mantle's 5th World Series home run. The Dodgers won the game, 8-3, bringing the series to a 2-1 Yankee lead.
Attractive ticket stub has been graded EX 5 by PSA, an outstanding example with very little visible wear. A key stub from the game that began the Dodgers' 1955 turnaround.
