BASEBALL—Tokyo's YOMIURI GIANTS, the Central League pennant winners, shut out Osaka's Nankai Hawks, champions of the Pacific League, 4-0 in the sixth game to win the Japanese World Series four games to two. It was the Giants' eighth series win since 1950. A few days later the Giants lost to the touring Los Angeles Dodgers 16-5 as the Dodgers got 21 hits—four more than they made in their four-game World Series loss to the Orioles. In the next game, however, the Dodgers got only three hits and were shut out 5-0 by the Giants.
