On May 6, 1953 the Brooklyn Dodgers beat the St. Louis Cardinals at Ebbets Field 7-3. Carl Erskine (3-0) was the winning pitcher, while Cardinals pitcher, Joe Presko (1-1) took the Loss. 

 

Ray Jablonski had a HR for the Cards, while Duke Snider career #114 and Gil Hodges career #144 had Homers for the Dodgers.

 

The Cardinals played the game under protest when Brooklyn had a four run cluster in the 6th inning in which a ruling by Plate Umpire Jocko Conlan (HOF) caused Cardinals Manager, Eddie Stanky to protest the game.

 

During a heated argument over the decision, both Stanky and catcher Del Rice were thrown out of the game by Conlan.

 

The disputed play arose in the 6th after Duke Snider walked with one out and raced to third base on Jackie Robinson’s single.  Jackie moving to second on the throw to third.

 

Then, with the Cards infielders playing in for a possible play at the plate, Roy Campanella bounced a hard single to left, just out of reach of shortstop, Solly Hemus who made a diving try for the ball and sprawled in the dust along the base line between third and second.

 

Snider scored on the hit, but as Robinson race to third, he tripped over Solly Hemus and also fell headlong to the ground then remained at third until Conlan waved him home.

 

Stanky rushed out of the dugout and the went nuts along with catcher, Del Rice causing them to be banished from the game. The Dodgers would win 7-3 in this drama filled game!
