Yankees Sink Crew In 2 Game Tilt

Game 1 New York 9  Milwaukee 1
Eight of New Yorks fourteen hits went for extra bases (including home run number 4 on the season for Jake Gibbs) as the Yankees dominated the Brewers.  Fritz Peterson (5-3, 1.92 ERA) struck out 7 and went the distance to dominate Brewer bats.  Lew Krause (3-4, 4.34 ERA) was knocked out in the 6th and should have been yanked earlier, but skipper Dave Bristol left his veteran righty in to take his lumps.

Game 2 New York 3  Milwaukee 2
A pitching battle between Yankees John Cumberland (3-0, 1.30 ERA) and Brewers John Morris (1-1, 3.10 ERA) broke out in game number 2 of the 2 game series.  Cumberland struck out 4 in 6.2 innings before handing the reigns over to Lindy McDaniel (3.12 ERA) to finish things off and earn his 6th save of the season.  Phil Roof was the main feature in constructing the Milwaukee runs hitting his 3rd homer of the season (a 2 run shot) in the bottom of the second inning.  

Milwaukee's losses dropped them to 15-17 on the season, while the Yankees wins bumped them to 17-16.
