Vernon in the first six innings before leaving for a pinch -hitter. Manager Hawley got Centralia in order in relief. The Zeros got two unearned runs off Heistand" early in the game then picked up an earned marker in the sixxth. Despite this effective mound work the cause was lost.

By Asseciatod Proii LNTGLEWOOD, Calif., June 28. —Jockey Willie Shoemaker planned a one-day vacation from the race track today to let a few bruises heal, but he thanked his lucky stai-s lie was still alive. Wee Willie, the leading rider at Hollyu -Qod Park and co-national champion in 1950, was thrown in one of the most spectacular spills in many a ract at the track yesterday. His mount, Dutch Wife, went over the fence and the rider went under it. The rider and horse came together on the grass. Shoemaker was partially pinned down but managed to crawl out. Shoemaker suffered a bruised neck, a cut eye and elbow and a skinned nose. Dutch Wife, claimed just before the race for $5,000 by six liorsemen, broke a leg and was destroyed. The unlucky horsemen drew lots to see who took charge of the dead horse. Laiwy Kidd, Pleasanton, Calif., won the dubious draw. The accident happened soon after the horses broke from the seven furlong chute in the fourth race. Dutch Wif« tried to duck in and hit the steel patrol tower and then went over the rail. Shoemaker barely missed hitting a rail post as he plunged under the rail. CLEAR HAVANA—Leading the American League in batting, hittmg the dirt and playing right flclc' and third base. Orestes Minoso has contributed much toward making the surprising White Sox pennant contenders. 'NEA> "ME JUST WANT ONE HIT A GAME IF SHE DRIVES IN WINNING RUN,"SAYS MINNIE AUTO-UTES NIP MOOSE, VPW HAMMERS WIN OVER EAGLES TONIGHT 7:00—Legion vs. Eagles. 8:15— VFW vs. Stove Co. The perfect record of the Auto- Lites is still untarnished. The undefeated leaders of the Mt. Vernon Softball League had rough going last night but combined some terrific base running with timely hitting to defeat the Moose, 8-5. In the first game last night the V. F. W. breezed to a 14-4 win over the Eagles. The vets iced their ball game quickly, shoving eight runs across in the first inning. Ernie Green, with three hits and Dickie Harshbarger, Bob Howard and Ray Faulkner, with two safeties each, paced the winners at the plate. Left Fielder McCormick paced the losers, with two base knocks. The Moose jumped into a 2-0 lead over the Auto-Lites in the first inning. It took the Auto- Lites three innings to tie it up as they got single runs in the second and third stanzas. The Auto-Lites went on top to stay with five runs in the fourth inning on three hits and two Moose miscues. Tlie Moose fought back gamely, scoring three times in the fifth to close the margin, but Bob Jones came in for the Lites in the sixth to pitch two scoreless innings and protect the winners' lead. Don Glover, Auto-Lite short­ stop, had a perfect night at the plate. He socked two singles, a double and a home run in four trips. Louray Isaac and Buck Howard paced the losers with two hits apiece.

Sinks, If 2 0 0 By CR4RLES CH .IMBERLAIN By Associated Press CHICAGO, June 28. — Out of practically nowhere has come mercurial Minnie Minoso. a wasp- waisted C^iban Negro, to lead American League batters with .361 and set fans agasp by stretching singles into doubles or triples at the drop of a ball. How did this sensational White Sox rookie, who has stolen 15 bases and rattled the most reserved pitchers with terror tactics on the paths, get his start towards the major leagues? After all, he's 28. an age when most fellows need a second breath to catch a street car. His only slowness was arriving in the big show. Perhaps genuine modesty on Minoso's part is the answer. He would never talk about himself. But his one-time roommate did plenty of talking, and at the right time. It probably was one of the greatest jobs of unplanned and unrehearsed salesmanship in baseball lore. It started back in 1948 when Abe Saperstein, cosmopolitan owner of, the Harlem Globetrotters and a' baseball contact man for Bill Veeck, got wind of a pitcher named Jose Santiago. Santiago was with the York Cubans in the National Negro League and was supposed to have about as much stuff as Satchel Paige. "So we go to this guy's room in New York," says Abe. "We want to talk to him about signing with Cleveland. But all we can get out of Santiago is how good a guy named Orestes Minoso is. Jos? tells us 'Minoso my roommate and him can play right, left, center field — first, second, third and shortstop; catch and pitch. Him does it all with us Cubans." Well, that was about all for Abe. He had to see the marvelous Minoso, Finally, in a 1948 Negro all -star game in Chicago, Abo and Cleveland scout, Bill Killifer, watched Minnie run and field like a gazelle, hit like a pile driver and run bases like his pants were on fire. Killifer and Veeck signed him and sent him to San Diego where he hit just under .300 in 1949 and .339 last year. Wlien the Indians brought him up early this season they put Luke Easter at first base and Minoso on the bench, using him when Easter was injured. Minoso eventually came to Chicago as part of a three-team package deal on April 30. "What makes me hit so well?" Minoso asks in broken English. "I hit because I play every day. I am one that has to play all time—I play in Cuba in winter, 70 or more games, then I play 150 or more in summer. Me never sick, but more I play better I like it—200 games a year, that not much even." Minoso, who has been hit by 10 pitched balls to rival the one-time pxjpular target, durable Frankie Crosetti (now New York Yankee coach), laughs it all off and pulls his re-inforced cap protector down tighter on his head. "Sure, some pitchers in the league try to dust me off," he admits. "But I don 't care. They can't hurt me and I get on base and that 's what my Job is getting on base and getting a run. "And also I play anywhere on team and happy to do so. Just long I play, that 's all I care. Me don 't want five hits—I just want to get one in every game if it drives in winning run." Minnie have two favorite stories about himself. "At San Diego in doubleheader with Oakland I hit three home runs in first game. Late in second game with two strikes a soft pitch comes too close to me to want to hit so it hit my leg. I start down to first but umpire says I let ball bump me on purpose. We argue but he wins. "I pick up bat and next ball I hit out of park. Coming round home plate umpire says 'You should thank me for that.' For what? Because he gave me chance to hit? 'O, no'. I tell him, 'if I had missed that last one I would been big out.' And I laugh and laugh at umpire." Minoso said one of his favorite gestures with San Diego was if he Cards Shift Lineup,Slam Bruins, 14-2 En OS Slaughter Back in Out* field, Stan Musial to First Base. Sportsman's Park witnessed two reunions last night—Enos Slaughter came back into the St. Louis Cardinal lineup and Stan Musial made his yearly return to first base. Both seemed to enjpy the shifts, particularly Slaughter. After a rest on the bench the veteran Card outfielder levelled off for four hits In five trlps-^two singles, a double and a triple—and drove In five runs. Musial, back at first to give Nippy Jones ? rest, collected two for three and drove in two more runs as the ^ Cards pounded the Chicago Cubs, 14-2. The triumph, cutting the second place advantage of the New York Giants over the Cards, to two games, wasn 't entirely due to Redbird aggressiveness however. "The Cubs added five bobbles to the Cardinal cause. Brecheen Is Winner Harry Brecheen, who replaced starter Joe Presko fW the fourth, was the winner, while Bob Schultz was charged with the loss. Joe Hatten, acquired by the Cubs in their recent trade with Brooklyn, finished the game, allowing five hits in three innings. Tonight the rubber game of the series will match Cardin- Singer Trauhel Sells Brownie Stock to Veeck NEW YORK. June 28.—Singer Helen Traubei said today that she had sold her stock in the St. Louis Browns to Bill Veeck and urged all other stockholders to do the same thing. Miss Traubel's New York representative said the St. Louis soprano, vacationing at Laguna Beach, Calif., reached her decision yesterday after several telephone conferences with Veeck, now in Chicago. The amount of her holdings were not revealed, but the representative said it was an "important block." (Informed sources in St. Louis estimated Miss Traubei had held about 5,000 shares of Brownie stock). Veeck, one-time o^vner of the Cleveland Indians, obtained an option last week to buy the St Louis Browns from the DeWitt brothers. They held more than half of the Brown stock. al Gerry Staley (9-6) and Chicago's Frank Hiller (4-5) on the raound. The St. Louis Browns lost their two-game series with the Cleveland Indians as Luke Easter's four RBIs and Mike Garcia's five, hit pitching gave the Tribe an 8-1 triumph. The Browns still have only two victories to show for their long road trip. Al Widmar started the Browns and was nicked for his seventh loss against three triumphs. The Browns are idle today. Irish Bob Fights Like Popeye to Beat LaMotto By Aiiecialod Prnt NEW YORK June 28.— I r i s h Bobby Murphy, the fighting ex- sailor with the golden touch in his leather mitts, was almost in sight of his goal today—a shot at the light heavyweight title—following his smashing seven round technical knockout of Jake La Motta. The smiling, red-haired slugger, boxing's latest boxoffice sensation and the pugilistic hit of tele- set the stage for a crack at champion Joey Maxim by battering and slicing the Bronx bull's swarthy features, before 21,257 roaring fans at Yankee , Stadium last night. The egress gate was $116 ,690. In addition some 28,650 spectators witnessed the theeater-cast in 11 theaters in eight cities. Murphy became the darling of the T-V viewers with his slamming fights but last night's furious bra. 1 was seen only by Yankee Stadium fans and cash customers in the 11 theaters. There was no TV or radio. From the fifth on La Motta, very slow afoot at a bulky 175- pounds dripped blood from every pore. He was cut over and under both eyes, was cut on the chin an mouth, and there were dark bruises on his cheeks. Toe-to-Toe Slugfest Just before the bell rang to end the seventh round, blood gushed from a deep cut over Jake's left eye. Dr. Vincent A. Nardiello bounded into the ring, gave Jake a quick look, and when the Bull told him "I feel weak," the commission physician waved to Referee Ray Miller to stop the fight. The bout had been billed for 12 rounds but it was obvious from the start that it wasn't going the distance. The Gladiators, fulfilling' expectations, moved right Into mid-ring, put their heads to­ gether, and started banging away at each other. Head to head, toe to toe, it went all the way. And don't think for a minute that Murphy got away unscathed. He bled from the lip and was sliced over the right eye. Fights Like Popeye La Motta got in r' punches, but he was v ^ §tm by the relentless pressu. on him. The 29-year-ciu ex-gob who looks and fights like Pop-eye the sailor, unleased jolting left uppercuts and jarring left hooks and Jake had to cave. Murphy was in magnificent condition at 1751/2 pounds and acted like the 8V2 to 5 favorite all the way. Jake had a $29,853 paycheck to soothe his wounds. Murphy collected $22,391, his largest purse ever. It was the third time In his long career that La Motta has been stopped., But he can still boast that no one has ever floored him. 'WAHOO' REYNOLDS THROWS 3RD STRAIGHT SHUTOUT AS YANKS GAIN ON WHITE SOX N«w York Righthander Allows No Runs In Lost 28 2/3 Innings, No Wolks In 35 Frames; Dodgers Slop Gionfs 10-4 To Stretch Lead To Six Gomes. BY JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer The hottest hurler in the majors today is AUie (Wahoo) Reynolds, the part Indian righthander from Bethany, Okla., who toils for the New York Yankees. .Last night ho racked up his third straight shutout as the Yanks whipped the Washington Senators, 2-0, on five hits. The victory plus Detroit's 3-2 win over Chicago enabled the Yankees to climb to within one game of the American League leading White Sox. The third place Boston Red Sox also closed in on the leaders with a 6-5 victory over Philadelphia's Athletics and arc now three games off the pace. Brooklyn's, National League leading Dodgers crushed the New York Giants. 10-4, to widen their margin to six games over tlieir interborough rivals. The St. Louis Cardinals walloped the Cliicago Cubs, 14-2 and Gncinnati edged out Pittsburgh 2-1. Cleveland shellacked the St. Louis Browns, 8-1. Boston's Braves and the Philadelphia Phils were rained out. The 32-year-old Reynolds was in trouble only in the fifth when Gene Verble slammed a threo- bagger with one out. Allie preserved his shutout by getting rival pitcher Don John.son to fly to short right and Gil Coan to ground out. Reynolds, in registering his eighth win against four defeat.s, hasn't allowed a run in his last 28 2/3 indnings nor a base on balls in 34 2/3 innings. Allie is shooting for three new marks—most successive shutout games, most successive shutout innings and most consecutive innings without a base on balls—but he has a long way to go to reach any of them. G. Harris (Doc) White hurled five straight shutout games for the White Sox back in 1904. Walter Johnson pitched 56 consecutive innings for Washingtotn without allowing a run in 1913. Christy Mathewson did not issue a base on balls htrough 68 consecutive innings for the Giants in 191.3. White owns the American League mark of 65 1/3 innings. He accomplished the feat in 1907. The Yankees made only seven hits against ex-mates Don Johnson and Tom Ferrick. Phil Rizzuto opened the game with a double to right and scored on a single by Gene Woodling. Joe DiMaggio tallied the second Yankee run on a diuble in the sixth and a sirjgle by Johnny Mize. Some nifty relief pitching by Virgil Trucks paved the way for the Tigers' win over the White Sox. Trucks replaced Ted Gray in the seventh with the Tigers in front, 2-1, and runners on first and third with nobody out. He walked the next two batters to force in Jim Busky with the tying run. Then, with the bases loaded a/id ^ nobody out. Trucks got Bob Dil- City. linger to hit into a double play via the plate, and threw out Nellie Fox to end the threat. The Tigers broke the tie in the eighth on singles by George Koll and Pat .Mullin and a run-scoring fly by Dick Kryhoski. J| Triples by Dom DiMaggio and Billy Goodman and singles by Charlie Maxwell and Ted Williams combined for throe Red Si x runs in the seventh which onaglod them to come from behind and nip the A's. fi-5. Pitcher Ray Scarbo-ough who started for Boston, was stuck in the back of the head by Carl Schcib's pickoff pitch in the third and wa.s removed to a hospital for examination. X-rays were negative but he was advised to g remain overnight. ^' Luke Easter banged in four runs with a homer and two singles to help the Indians hand the last place Browns their eighth successive loss. Don Ncwcombe coasted to his 10th victory as his Brooklyn mates used two innings—a four run fourth and a sir-run sixth—to down the Giants. Andy Pafko blasted his 16th homer with two on in the fourth and Duke Snider g slammed his 15th in the sixth, also * with two mates aboard. Ends Slaughter collected two singles, a double and triple and drove in five runs to lead the Cards to an easy triumph over the Cubs. Willie RamsdcU of Cincinnati won a huiiing duel from young Boh Friend of Pittsburgh. Rams- doll was one strike away from a shutout when Bill Howerton walloped a home run for the Bucan- ^ neers in the ninth. ^ BeloitKickedT Out of 9'Team Midwest League By Associated Press RIPON, Wis., June 28. — Tlia Midwest Conference publicity office announced today that member college faculties have approved the | suspen.sion of Beloit from the nine- team circuit.
