October 5, 1943 In Game 1, the Cardinals went up 1–0 in the second against Spud Chandler on Marty Marion’s RBI double with two on. In the fourth inning, with runners on first and third and no outs off Max Lanier, Charlie Keller’s double-play tied the game, then Joe Gordon’s home run put the Yankees up 2–1. The Cardinals tied the game in the fifth inning when Ray Sanders hit a leadoff single, moved to second on an error and scored on Lanier’s single. In the sixth inning, after two leadoff singles, a one-out wild pitch by Lanier put the Yankees up 3–2, then Bill Dickey added an insurance run with an RBI single. Chandler pitched a complete game to give the Yankees a 1–0 series lead.
