Stengel Picks Bob Lemon Over Feller By Associated Press NEW YORK, July 2 — Yankee manager Casey Stengel said today he picked Bob Lemon over Bob (no-hit) Feller for next week's all-star game because "I think Lemon would relieve better." League rules call for the all- star manager to pick only one pitcher from each team. "I had to leave Feller off because I thought Lemon would be better under the circumstances.^ How was I to know Feller would pitch a no-hitter. Golly; that'll cook me with the fans."

The West Virginia slammer with the bulging bank account went into today's 36-hole semifinals over Oakmont's exacting acres opposed by a trio of tyros. SneaS has won the play-for-pay classic twice and was runner-up on two. occasions. His foes never have made a dent in the national golfing picture. His immediate foe for today's fray was 29-year-old Charley Bassler, long-hitting ex-Marine from Catonsville, Md., who in his PGA debut a year ago failed to get past the first round. 16-Team Softball Meet Opens in Mt.V.

It's certainly blue Monday in the Comiskey camp. For the first time since May 28 when they were rolling along in fairy-tale fashion oh a 14-game winning spree, the White Sox are out of the American League lead today. Dividing a doubleheader yesterday with the St. Louis Browns — a team that had lost 15 out of 16 to the Sox, including nine straight spring exhibitions -— did it. Minnie Minoso's 11th inning homer, a 400 foot clout into the left ^center . . grand stands salvaged.^ 2-1 victory in the opener. But the Browns took the nightcap 3-1 behind the two-hit chore of Ned Garver, who had been sidelined since June 16th with a pulled leg muscle. This left the Comiskeys with a league percentage of .638 while the New York Yankees, who defeated the Boston Red Sox 5-2 in a single Sunday game, nudged on to the roost with .642. "It's not our pitching, it's our hitting," moaned Frank Lane, the once back - slapping, gleeful I general manager tn the days when the Sox were cruising 4 x /2 games in front. "We're not even hitting the ball hard. Using banana stalks maybe." The Sox have scored only six runs in their last three games and have lost six of their last 10. The Sox dressing room was morgue-like. Manager Paul Richards acted like a man who had been jolted by sticking his finger into a light socket. , Asked if it were somewhat consoling to have the tension off that accompanies a pace-setter, Richards snapped: "It's no good being out of the lead, no matter how you look at it." Then he stalked away. » Second baseman Nellie Fox, the 140-pound dynamo, was aj-iked about his trouble in the second game. Fox pounced on a grounder but fell as he pivoted and threw wide to first allowing the lead run to score in the fourth inning. Fox trudged to his locker, took out his shoe that come apart at the heel on the play and caused the difficulty. Wordlessly, he held it up. Just like the glass slipper that would not fit. Ned Garver Knocks Sox Out of Lead Brownies' One - Man Gang Tosses Two-Hitter; Cards Beat Pollet. By Associated Press Ned Garver, the one-man pitching staff, has knocked the Chicago White Sox out of the American League lead. Ned tossed a two-hitter In the nightcap of a Sunday doubleheader tit Chicago yesterday to give the St. Louis Browns a 3-1 victory after they dropped the opener, 2-1, in 11 innings. It was Garver's first outing since he pulled a tendon in his left thigh June 20. Second baseman Nelson Fox got a scratch hit off him in the first inning and shortstop Chico Carrasquel landed a liner in the second. Pitcher Duane Pillette lost a tough duel to Ken Holcombe of the White Sox in the first game when leftfielder Orestes Minoso poked out a home run in the 11th inning. The St. Louis Cardinals, for the third straight Sunday, had to go extra innings at Sportsman's Park in St. Louis yesterday. But they finally beat out their former star southpaw and hold-out Howie Pollet and won, 5-4, in 12 innings over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Third busrnuin Bill Johnson drove in Stan (The Man) Musial with the winning run on a looping double just inside the right field foul line. The Pirates had surged ahead, 4-1, by the fifth inning but Musial put the Cards within striking range in the sixth with his 16th homer of the season with two aboard. The Redbirds tied it up in the seventh on outfielder "Peanuts" Lowrey's single and outfielder Enos Slaughter's double. After that Pollet, who recently was traded to the Pirates by the Cards, held his old teammates to three hits. They used three pitchers, George Munger, Al Brazle and Gerald Staley, to beat him. Marty Is Back On Active List ST. LOUIS, July 2 — Manager Marty Marion is back on the St. Louis Cardinals' active player list. Marion, known as Mr. Shortstop has been on the bench this season with an ailing knee. He tested it in an exhibition at Omaha last week and decided he was ready to go. The National League club, now in third place, has recalled outfielder Hal Rice, hitting .349 with Rochester in the International League and pitcher John Crimian with Columbus of the American Association. Crimian, with 4 wins and 3 losses, appeared in 32 of Columbus's first 61 games this season. In the move, the Cardinals sent pitcher t'loyd Boyer, with one victory and three defeats, and rookie outfielder Jay Van Noy to Rochester. FELLER'S THIRD NO-H GAME CAPS DAY OF GREAT PITCHING JOBS IN MAJORS Cleveland's Rapid Robert Becomes Only Modlrn Day Hurler With Trio Of No-Hitters To Credit; White Sox Hare Trouble With Browns As Yaifiks Take American League Lead. Golden Boy With a Golden Smile ifisli Bob Murphy boxing's new golden boy, gives with a golden smile as he holds aloft a check for $24,149.54 at New York (June 28) as plans were being made to give him a crack in September at Joey Maxim, the reluctant light heavyweight champion. The purse for beating Jake La Motta was largest of Murphy's career. Total Includes $1,500 for training expenses. — ( AP Wirephoto) For pleasant hours at home Always keep a case on hand By JOE REICHLER AP Sports Writer Bob Feller, king of active major league pitchers, sits on a pedestal today at the only modern day hurler with three no-hit games to his credit. The 82-year-old Cleveland righthander, making a great comeback after two mediocre seasons, held Detroit without a hit yesterday as he pitched the Indians to a 2-1 victory In the first gome of a doubleheader. The Tigers were limited to only four hits all day as rookie Bob Chtikales shut them out, 2-0, in the nightcap. Feller's performance capped an afternoon of brilliant pitching that included a lost one-hitter, a pair of two-hitters and a four-hitter. Bob's no-hit masterpiece overshadowed the Chicago White Sox fall out of the American League lead and Bobby Doerr's feat of making his 2,000th hit as a Boston Red Socker. Compared tc Feller's achievement, Ed Lopat's six-hitter wasn't much, but it was good enough to give New York a 5-2 triumph over Boston and move the Yankees into first place, four percentage points above the White Sox. It was Lopat's 11th win against three losses. Bobby Doerr got his 2,000th hit as a Red Socker. Ned Garver's two-hit twirling gave the St. Louis Browns a 3-1 nightcap victory after Chicago had won an 11-inning opener, 2-1, on Minny Minoso's homer. It dropped the White Sox out of first place for the first time since May 28. Russ Meyer held Brooklyn to one hit but the Dodgers beat his Philadelphia Phils, 2-0. Don Newcombe pitched a seven-hitter for Brooklyn. Pee Wee Reese got the Dodger's lone blow off the temperamental righthander. It was a booming third inning triple that followed walks to Roy Campanula and Cal Abrams, accounting for the only runs of the game. Paul Minner handcuffed Cincinnati with two singles in the opener as the Chicago Cubs swept a doubleheader from the Reds, 7-0 and 7-5. Larry Jansen scattered seven hits in pitching the New York Giants to a 4-1 win over Boston's Braves. In the only'games where pitching did not shine, the Philadelphia Athletics downed the Washington Senators twice, 10-7 and 3-2 and the St. Louis Cardinals whipped the Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-4 in 12 innings. Elmer Valo hit three homers for the A's. In pitching his third no- hltter, Feller realized a five- year dream. It was on April SO, 1946, just after ho had held the Yankees hitless, that he set a third no-hitter as his goal. "I really wanted to get it," Bob said yesterday, "-because only one man in modern baseball has done it — Cy Young." Actually, Feller is the first to pitch three no-hitters in this century. Larry Corcoran hurled three for Chicago in the National League in 1880, 1882 and 1884; and Young's three were in 1897, 1904 and 1908. Feller's first no-hitter was opening day, April 17, 1940, against the White Sox. The Van Meter farm boy, who joined the Indians in 1936 as a 17-year-old I and fanned 17 batters in a game his first season, also has pitched 10 one-hitters — a major league record. Feller, the second to pitch a no- hitter this year (Cliff Chambers of Pittsburgh was the other), walked three batters and fanned five. He whizzed a third strike past the dangerous Vic Wertz for the final out. It was a homer by Wertz that ruined a no-hit bid by Bob Lemon, Feller's teammate, about a month ago. The Tigers' run came in the fourth when Johnn Lipon was safe on shortstop Ray Boone's error. Llpon stole second, sent to third when Feller threw wild- on an attempted pickoff, and scored on George Kelt's long fly. Luke Easter drove in both Cleveland runs. It was the 11th victory for Feller who has lost but twice this season. Feller WAs Trying Hold To lead CLEVELAND, Julfr 2 — The way to pitch three fio-hit games, says Bob Feller, is tc* "try to hold a one-run lead." Feller ought to know. He is the only man to turn thapt trick within the 20th century. Aiiid all three of _ his games have becivi won by one- ™ run margins. / The last niun do win three (he hitless way wiis Cy Young. His third no-hitter was la 1918, but his first was before (he turn of the Vcntury. "I knew I was wjroking on a no- hitter most of the game," Feller recalled after yesterday's 2-1 win over Detroit, "but/. I was so busy trying to protect that lead I didn't have much time to worry about it. I just concentrated on each batter as he came along." Feller's main disappointment was that his wife, Virginia, did not see him win. "She never sees me do a darn thing", he added, explaining he was batching it while his family vacationed at a Wisconsin lake. "They probably didn't even hear the game on the radio," he continued. "I'll have to telephone them about it." His oldest boy, now six, is taking an interest in the game. Feller still thinks the 1-0 no- hitter he took from the New York Yankees on April 30, 1946, was the most thrilling. That was his second. The first was a 1-0 shutout over Chicago April 16, 1940.
