October 2, 1941 At Ebbets Field The New York Yankees struck first in Game 2 on Spud Chandler’s RBI single in the second with runners on second and third, but Joe Gordon was thrown out at home trying to score to end the inning. Next inning, Charlie Keller’s RBI single with two on made it 2–0 Yankees. In the fifth, the Dodgers loaded the bases off of Chandler with no outs on a double and two walks when Pee Wee Reese’s sacrifice fly and Mickey Owen’s RBI single tied the game. Next inning, an error and single put two on with no outs off of Chandler, then Dolph Camilli’s single off relief pitcher Johnny Murphy in the sixth put the Dodgers up 3–2. Wyatt gave up a pinch single to George Selkirk leading off the ninth, but nailed down a complete-game victory.
