The New York Yankees looked like they were on their way to beating their crosstown rivals the Brooklyn Dodgers once again in another World Series. The Yankees had taken the first two games of the 1955 World Series by scores of 6-5 and 4-2.

But then the Dodgers started to turn the tide with an 8-3 win in game three. The complete game victory that Johnny Podres threw was just the beginning of what would end up being an incredible World Series for him. That story in a later post.

The Dodgers would finally defeat the Yankees in seven games, and send long-suffering Brooklyn fans into pandemonium by winning their only world championship.
