Final Standings of pool play.

 

Giants 6-4

Dodgers 6-4

Highlanders 6-4

Yankees 6-4

Bridegrooms 4-6

Gothams 2-8

 

With four teams tied, a tiebreaker is actually easy to set up. Teams seeded one and four will compete, along with teams seeded two and three. The winners will play for the top spot, the loser of that getting the second spot. The losers of the first game will play for third place and the final playoff entry. The Giants pick up the first seed thanks to their 4-2 record against the other three teams. The Dodgers will get home field against the Highlanders due to better run differential. Hera are the tiebreak matchups.

Gil McDougald's triple drove in the tying runs in the fifth, and Charlie Keller hit a home run in the eighth to plate the go-ahead run.

Bill Dickey hit two doubles and drove in two runs.

 

The Dodgers finish first in the pool and receive a playoff bye. The Giants finish second and will have home field advantage in the first round.

 

Next up, Highlanders vs. Yankees for the final playoff berth.

My computer says it's August. Should've drafted Dave Winfield.

The Giants trailed 4-2 into the ninth. Joe Gordon hit an RBI double, and Moose Skowron's two run home run won the game.

The Giants scored all four runs in the sixth inning, the big blow a two-RBI double by Moose Skowron.

The Giants carried a 3-0 lead into the ninth. The club stuck with Urban Shocker too long, and the Yankees scored four without recording an out. Joe Dimaggio tied the game with a two-run double, and Dave Winfield collected the game winning single.

Don Mattingly gave the Yankees an early lead with a two-run home run in the first. The Giants scored three in the second and two in the fifth, the latter coming on Mickey Mantle's two-run home run.

 

The Giants win the series 3-1. It's Giants vs. Dodgers in the finals.

The best game of the tournament? The Dodgers took the lead with four in the seventh and held a three-run lead in the ninth. A two out error by Goose Gossage extended the inning and gave Moose Skowron a chance to hit a three run home run to tie the game. Gil McDougald hit the walk-off home run in the 13th.

Charlie Keller drove in the tying run and Mickey Mantle the go-ahead run in the 8th. This series will go to a fifth and deciding game.

Five RBI day for Bill Dickey, including the game winning single in the tenth inning. Another fantastic game.
