The Giants shell the Dodgers‚ 10-4‚ with Jackie Robinson hitting his first home run‚ off Dave Koslo‚ in the loss. In a sign of things to come this year‚ the Giants counter with 6 homers-2 apiece by Bobby Thomson and Bill Rigney‚ and one apiece by Johnny Mize and Willard Marshall. Scout Burt Shotton is the surprise choice to replace Leo Durocher: he participates in the pre game flag raising and then manages the team.

Bill Rigney, Bobby Thompson, Dave Koslo, Jackie Robinson, Johnny Mize, New York Giants, Willard Marshall
