1951 Hall of Fame Game
Leading off the top of the fifth inning, Duke Snider crushed a home run over the right field wall to tie the score.
The game remained knotted until the top of the ninth inning when, with a runner on first, Carl Furillo homered to center field to give the Dodgers the lead for good. Brooklyn would tack on an additional three insurance runs in the inning when Cal Abrams lifted another two-run home run and Gil Hodges hit an RBI double.
Four different Dodgers had multi-hit games, while center fielder Dave Philley was the only Philadelphia player to record more than one hit.
Coleman pitched a complete game for the Athletics, allowing nine runs on 11 hits while walking six and striking out just one. Erv Palica started for Brooklyn and threw six innings of five-hit ball. Phil Haugsted replaced him in the seventh inning and earned the win.
