1952 Hall of Fame Game
Brown’s home run an inning later tied the game at two, but the Indians responded with a home run from Johnny Berardino in the seventh inning to take the lead. Cleveland tacked on another insurance run in the top of the ninth inning when Glynn scored on a Hank Majeski infield single.
The Cubs threatened in the bottom of the ninth when catcher Johnny Pramesa reached on an error by Berardino at second base with one out, but Cleveland reliever Dick Rozek retired the next two Chicago batters on a pop out and a line out to end the game.
Berardino was the only player to record more than one hit in the contest, going 2-for-2 at the plate with a run scored for the Indians. Chicago’s four hits were scattered among four different players, with Brown’s home run the only hit that yielded any runs.
On the mound, four pitchers combined for 15 strikeouts, led by a game-high six from Rozek, who pitched a scoreless final three innings to secure the win for the Indians.
