Pirates Beat Dodgers, 6 to 2; Kiners Homer Paces Attack NEW YORK, N. Y., May 1 UP.— The Pittsburgh Pirates unleashed a 15-hit attack — including Ralph Kiners third homer of the year and seven doubles — to beat the Brooklyn Dodgers, 6 to 2, today behind Cliff Chambers six-hit pitching. A crowd of 6,716 saw Kiner send the Pirates off to a 2 to 0 lead with a towering upper-deck homer in the first inning. Pittsburgh continued the attack on four Dodger pitchers with screaming liners that had the infielders ducking with almost every pitch. The victory snapped a string of 12 consecutive games the Pirates had lost to the Dodgers, stretching back into mid-1950. Chambers struck out seven and walked four as he recorded his second victory of the season and his first complete game. He also contributed two singles to the Pirates attack. The score by innings: R. H. E. PIRATES 201 210 000—6 15 DODGERS 002 000 000—2 6 Chambers 2-2 and McCullough; Palica, King 2 Labine 5 Branca 7 and Campanula. Losing pitcher, Palica 0-1 Home run — Kiner 3rd. - r t I e , . r t t B ■ * ; 0 [ 3 3 „ -
