    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair

    Johnny Podres and the Dodgers win the 7th game of the 1955 World Series, by a score of 2-0 at Yankee Stadium. Gil Hodges got both RBIs and Sandy Amoros made THE catch in the bottom of the 6th.

      OK, I'm assuming that was the answer for which FP was looking. Thus, how about this date in Brooklyn Dodger history: August 31, 1950.

        I believe August 31, 1950 is the day that GIL HODGES hit FOUR HOME RUNS in a game at OUR Ebbets Field against the then, Boston Braves.

          Correct. He picked up 9 RBIs as the Dodgers beat Warren Spahn and the Braves, 19-3. Carl Erskine pitched a complete game.

              Clem Labine started and won all three games; 10-0 against the Giants on 10/2/51, 6-3 against the Phillies on 7/4/55 and 1-0 against the Yankees on 10/9/56. I know he pitched complete games against the Giants and Yankees and I suspect he did against the Phillies too.

                YOU are absolutely right, Number4! Clem's Phillies win was the second game of a holiday DH......remember them?

                  Age plays funny tricks on remembering the good ole days of baseball; but, yes I do, though barely.

                  How about May 27, 1954?

                    OK, here's the answer (pehaps the question was a little too obscure): The Dodgers lost to the Philadelphia Phillies at Ebbets Field, 11-5, despite Duke Snider getting his 1,000th career base hit with a third inning single.

                    Someone else can ask the next question.

                        Dan Bankhead became the first African-American to pitch in a ML game. He pitched 3 1/3 innings for the Dodgers that day, giving up 8 runs and 10 hits as the Dodgers lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 16-3 at Ebbets Field. Despite his rough pitching start, Bankhead hit a home run in his first ML at-bat.
