FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»May 7, 1955:
Behind Carl Erskine, the Dodgers beat Robin Roberts and the Phils, 6–3, for their 9th straight win. All the Phils scoring is on solo homers -- two by Willie Jones and one by Del Ennis. For the Phils, it is their 8th loss in a row while the Brooks have now won 20 out of 22 games. The game is almost forfeited in the 7th after plate ump Art Gore chases Roberts, Earl Torgeson, and Jack Meyer from the Phils bench. Fans rain dozens of beer cans down on Gore and fellow ump Jocko Conlan.
