Why the Yankees won: Although Johnny Lindell (9-for-18, 1.403 OPS) led the offense, Joe Page's clutch relief effort in Game 7 (five scoreless innings) was the difference.

Why the Dodgers lost: The Dodgers' starting pitching was a glaring weakness; no starter pitched beyond the fifth inning, and the rotation had a collective ERA of 9.64.

Memorable moment: In Game 4, Bill Bevens was one out from a no-hitter when Cookie Lavagetto lined a two-run double to right field to beat the Yankees.

Key stat: 6. The appearances by the Dodgers' Hugh Casey, who won twice, had one save and an 0.87 ERA.
