On October 3, 1942 the third game of the 1942 World Series was played at Yankee Stadium – Ernie White pitched a six-hit shutout against New York, walking none. The last time the Yankees were shutout in a World Series game was by Jesse Haines in 1926. The Cardinals scored the game’s first run in the third off of Spud Chandler on Jimmy Brown’s groundout with runners on second and third, then added an insurance run in the ninth off of Marv Breuer on Enos Slaughter’s RBI single with two on, the run unearned due to catcher Walker Cooper’s error on Terry Moore’s bunt attempt, to take a 2–1 series lead.
