On ,August 3 1953 — Duke Snider lost a homer to the rain in Milwaukee at County Stadium. The blow came as he led off the eighth inning with Lew Burdette pitching for the Braves. The game was called with the Dodgers leading 2-0 during the bottom of the eighth. The records reverted back to the end of the seventh and a 1-0 Dodgers win.

also the Bench’s  cleared as Roy Campanella tries to get Lew Burdette after Lew gave Campy two successive high and inside pitches before striking him out. These two teams never had much love for each other, but Del Crandall, Eddie Mathews and Joe Adcock weren’t going to let anything happen to Burdette!
