Dodgers7 5-4 Win Knots Cub Series Score Three Runs in Sixth To Chase Lown; King Turns In First Rate Relief Chore NEW YORK, N. Y., May 9 UP .—Clyde Kings neat eight-inning relief job, coupled with a three-run rally in the sixth inning, brought the Brooklyn Dodgers from behind today and gave them a 5 to 4 victory over the Chicago Cubs before 5,147 fans. King, who gained his second victory of the season, succeeded starter Chris Van Cuyk in the second inning and held the Cubs scoreless, except for the eighth and ninth when Chicago picked up single runs. Brooklyns winning rally came at the expense of rookie Omar "Turk" Lown, who took over for southpaw Johnny Schmitz in the second. With two out in the sixth, Billy Cox and King each walked and then came home on Cal Abrams long two -base smash to deep center. Abrams then came across when Pee Wee Reese slashed a single to denter with what turned out to be the winning run. Cubs Score Twice in First The Cubs jumped to an early 2-0 lead in the first inning on two singles, an infield out, and Andy Pafkos triple, but Brooklyn tied the score in the second inning on a walk and doubles by Roy Cam-panella and Cox, plus Wayne Terwilligers error. Doubles by pinch-hitter Phil Cavaretta and Frank Baumholtz gave Chicago its third run in the eighth and the Cubs got their last run in the ninth on Pafkos double and two long flies. Duke Snider, who contributed two spectacular catches, paced Brooklyns nine-hit attack with a double and two singles. The score by innings : R H E Cubs 200 000 011 — 4 10 1 Dodgers 020 003 OOx — 5 9 2 Schmitz, Lown 2, Klippstein 6, Leonard 8 and Owen, Burgess 4; Van Cuyk, King 2 and Campanella.
