BOSTON (AP) —ly meet again in the Fall Classic.They had plenty of stars http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-gregory-polanco-jersey , especially during baseball’s Golden Era — Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson and The Duke of Flatbush, among them.But a World Series between the Red Sox and Dodgers just wasn’t part of the program.Or was it?Because a lucky few still have a souvenir of their greatest near-miss: a copy of the “official program” for the 1946 World Series between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox.Of course, they didn’t play that year, it was a phantom series. The St. Louis Cardinals swept Brooklyn in a best-of-three playoff for the NL pennant, and went on to beat Boston in Game 7 for the championship.“We never met the Red Sox,” longtime Brooklyn pitcher Carl Erskine, now 91, reminisced this week. “I pitched in the World Series five different years, always against the Yankees. I never got to pitch at Fenway Park.”Even so, the Harry M. Stevens company was prepared. That was the concessionaire for the Dodgers, Yankees and Giants, and it needed to be ready in case the Dodgers advanced.So it printed up the program for games in Brooklyn, just in case. Featuring a neat, overhead photo of Ebbets Field on the cover, the 40-page booklet was priced at 25 cents.Inside, the expected lineups and batting orders were listed. Eddie Stanky, Pee Wee Reese and Carl Furillo would be starting for the Dodgers http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-jung-ho-kang-jersey , and Williams, Johnny Pesky, Dom DiMaggio for the Red Sox.Brief bios were done on the players. The write-up on Williams noted, “he’s the only .400 hitter in the past decade.”A fast recap of the season mentioned Branch Rickey, saying, “the 1946 pennant of the Dodgers marks his first triumph as president and part owner of the Brooklyn club.”There were plenty of ads, including this one signed by the president of the Brooklyn Trust Company: “Congratulations! We join with the millions of other baseball fans in offering congratulations to the Brooklyn Dodgers upon their winning the National League pennant.”What happened to most of those programs, no telling. But some show up for sale on the internet for several hundred dollars.Years later, the clubs came close a couple times.The Red Sox next went to the World Series in 1967, a season after the Los Angeles Dodgers made it. Boston was back in ’75, a year after the Dodgers.Not until Tuesday night at Fenway will they square off for real in October, for the first time since Babe Ruth and the Red Sox beat Brooklyn in 1916.Erskine said he’d be watching this week from his home in Anderson, Indiana, cheering for his old club.He signed with the Dodgers in 1946 at age 19 and played that season in the Class B Three-I League, which had teams in Illinois, Indiana and Iowa.Erskine recalled rooting for Brooklyn in the NL pennant playoff — the Dodgers lost 4-2 at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis, then fell 8-4 at home. The World Series began three days later at the Cardinals’ field.The next year, big league baseball changed forever when Jackie Robinson joined the Dodgers and broke the color barrier. He played that fall when Brooklyn took on the Yankees.“I remember listening to that World Series on the radio. We didn’t have television back home Francisco Cervelli Jersey ,” Erskine said. “I couldn’t have imagined I’d be playing with Jackie in the majors the next year.”Erskine indeed made his debut in 1948. In 1953, he set a World Series record with 14 strikeouts in a game, fanning Mickey Mantle all four times he came to the plate in a 3-2 win at Ebbets Field.Erskine saw a lot of the Yankees over the next several years. But he never ran across the Red Sox in a game that counted.“They had good clubs in those days, but the Yankees were dominant,” Erskine said.“It’s funny, the Red Sox had wanted to sign me,” he said, laughing. “Who knows, if I had signed with them, maybe there would have been a Red Sox-Dodgers World Series.” KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — While the Kansas City Royals overcame the weather, Toronto Blue Jays starter Sam Gaviglio was unable to overcome a fourth-inning balk.Lucas Duda homered, Rosell Herrera had three hits and the Royals beat the Blue Jays 6-2 after a long rain delay Thursday night to split their four-game series.Royals relievers Brian Flynn, Kevin McCarthy, Brandon Maurer and Wily Peralta shut down Toronto on three hits over the final five innings. Flynn (3-3) picked up the win with a scoreless inning.“Difficult circumstances, really,” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. “Long wait, waiting out the rain. We weren’t sure we were going to play. It just kept building up John Jaso Jersey , building up and then it started dying down. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen.“The bullpen did a good job of holding the fort and a good job by our hitters with four two-out hits to give us the lead.”Kansas City took the lead with a three-run fourth highlighted by Jorge Bonifacio’s RBI triple.Gaviglio (2-6) failed to make it through five innings for the eighth time in his past 13 starts. He allowed five runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.The right-hander came unraveled after a balk call and a delay of more than five minutes in the fourth. He attempted a pickoff throw, but the ball slipped out of his hand. After the umpires huddled, Herrera was awarded second base. There was also a replay review to confirm the balk, which took 4 minutes, 1 second.Following the long delay, Gaviglio yielded three straight run-producing hits.“I thought it was a balk, from my point of view,” Gaviglio said.He said the delay did not cause him problems.“I just kind of got a little up in the zone, didn’t make very good pitches,” Gaviglio said.Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Gaviglio is unable to get away with elevated pitches.“He’s been getting hit around a little bit lately, primarily because he gets a lot of pitches up in the zone,” Gibbons said. “That’s not his style. He can’t do that. “Danny Jansen’s sacrifice fly in the second scored Teoscar Hernandez with the first Toronto run.Kendrys Morales singled home Justin Smoak in the fourth with the final Blue Jays run.Glenn Sparkman, who was making his first big league start, was removed after four innings and 75 pitches. He gave up two runs and four hits.Rain delayed the start for 2 hours, 14 minutes — the third straight day that bad weather held up the first pitch.“It was a little different,” Sparkman said. “I definitely wasn’t ready for it. I got a cup of coffee, got warmed back up and went out there.”MATIAS’ SEASON OVEROF Seuly Matias, who leads the minor leagues with 31 homers for short-season Class A Burlington http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-jordy-mercer-jersey , went on the disabled list with a cut thumb. “It was an accident with the bus baggage door, just a freak accident, putting his bag in the bus on the way to Hagerstown,” Royals director of operations Alec Zumwalt said. “He sliced his thumb. It’s to the point where we’re just going to stop him for the season and get him ready for the instructional league. He’s not a guy we’re going to rush back, and make sure he’s at 100 percent.” Matias went 2 for 3 with a home run in the All-Star Futures Game last month in Washington.NOT CLUTCHRoyals 3B Hunter Dozier is 4 for 46 (.087) with runners in scoring position. He has come to bat with 65 men in scoring position and has six RBIs with only one extra-base hit. “It’s not really conducive to scoring runs, but that’s not going to stop me from playing him and letting him work through that,” Yost said.ROSTER MOVEThe Royals sent minor league LHP Kelvin Gonzalez to the Texas Rangers for a $250,000 international bonus allocation. Gonzalez, 20, was 0-2 with a 4.19 ERA and one save with Burlington.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: 3B Josh Donaldson (left calf tightness) is running the bases at the Dunedin, Florida, complex with no issues. … INF-OF Brandon Drury (broken left hand) will receive follow-up imaging Friday in New York to assess his healing.Royals: RHP Ian Kennedy (strained left oblique) threw a 25-pitch simulated game. He is scheduled to throw a two-inning simulated game Monday at the Royals’ complex in Surprise, Arizona. … LHP Danny Duffy (shoulder impingement) will begin throwing off a flat surface Friday for the first time since going on the disabled list Sunday. … OF Brian Goodwin (left groin strain) went 0 for 3 with two walks in his first rehab game with Triple-A Omaha.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Marcus Stroman (4-8, 5.03 ERA) starts Friday in the series opener at Yankee Stadium.Royals: RHP Jakob Junis (6-11, 4.82) is scheduled to pitch Friday against the White Sox in Chicago to open a seven-game trip.
