Peterson, who started on the mound for the Indians, was relieved with none out. Tom Quinn took over the pitching work for Mattoon.

Mllinkov's 5th Homer Milinkov, whose drive in the first inning just missed clearing the wall, got the extra needed •power in the seventh, smashing a towering blow high over the right field wall with Given on base. It was Milinkov's fifth homer of the season for the Kings. Solorzano again boosted his batting mark ; with three hits in four trips. Popovich, Given Patino and JMilinkov each had two safeties for Mt.

Southpaw, Max Lanier, Hearing his 36th birthday, limited Cincinnati to seven hits. The third-place Cardinals, despite their victory, however, gained no ground on the league-pacing Brooklyn Dodgers and second-place New York Giants both of whom alro won. The Cards are 7 1 ? games out of first place. The Cards bunched three of their 11 safeties with two walks and an error for four unearned runs in the fourth inning against lefty Harry Perkowski. That would have been enough but the Redbirds knocked out Perkowski in the seventh with another run and then routed southpaw Kent Peterson in a three -run eighth. Herman Wehmeier and Bud Byerly also tossed for the fifth-place Reds, trailing the Cards by four games. Three other Cardinals besides Musial, Red Schoendienst, Enqs Slaughter and Solly Hemus, ha'd two hits each.

VFW as Centralia Wins, Salem Tops Mt. V. Eagles as Moose Tourney Gets Under Way. Juniors, Seniors and Girl's Teams Play July 4. By Associated Press ATLANTA, July 2 — Hugh Casey, former baseball pitching star, killed himself here early today seconds after assuring his wife he was innocent of a charge that he fathered a son out of wedlock. Lieut. C. K. Fleming of the Atlanta police-said the former Brooklyn Dodger player shot himself through the neck with a .16 gauge shotgun in a downtown hotel room. Mrs. Kathleen Casey, an attractive, 34-year-old blonde and the pitcher's estranged wife, said she argued for 15 minutes over the telephone seeking to dissuade him from committing suicide. When the gun sounded, a friend of Casey's was only a few feet from the door of the 38-year-old athlete's room, hurrying to prevent the tragedy. "I begged and pleaded with him j not to do it," Mrs. Casey said, ' tearfuly in an interview. "I tried to tell him that it was tor God to deaide when a man must die but he laughed and said 'I am ready to die — ready to go.' " And she said, he added, "I feel just like I was walking out to the pitcher's box." Casey's last words, the distraught widow related were: "I am completely innocent of those charges." Mrs. CaseV explained that he referred to the ruling of a three- judge special sessions court in New York whidh named the big pitcher as the father of a son born out of wedlock to Hila Weissman, a 25-year-old brunette. "I can't eat or sleep since going through all the embarrasment of that paternity case," Mrs. Casey quoted her husband. "And I had to drag you through it, too, but I swear with a dying oath that I am innocent." The Caseys, who married 13 years ago, have no children. Mrs. Casey said their estrangement had nothing to do with the New York paternity suit. "I stood by him then because I thought Hugh was innocent," she said, "and I still believe that he is innocent." Suffered Heart Ailment Fleming quoted a bell boy at the (Atlantan) Hotel, where the former mound star registered last week, as saying Casey told him Saturday that his physician had given him only about 10 days to live because of a heart ailment. Gordon McNabb, a friend, told police Casey telephoned him shortly after midnight and said he planned to kill himself. McNabb, officers related, sought to dissuade Casey, then hurried to the hotel. When McNabb was about 30 feet from the door to Casey's room he heard the blast. McNabb said Casey had made similar threats for the past three days. Police captain Marvin Thomas said Mrs. Casey told him she had tried to persuade Casey not to take his life. The Caseys had not been living together, Capt. Thomas said. Began Career in 1932 Casey was a native of Atlanta. He began his baseball career with Atlanta of the Southern Association in 1932. He left the big leagues after pitching for Pittsburgh in 1949. He pitched for BrookhTi between 1939 and 1948. In 1947 he established a record for most games pitched in a World Series— six — and for the most games finished in a World Series — six. Last summe* he returned to Atlanta and pitched in relief for Atlanta. At one time this spring he was reported working out with Brooklyn in an effort to return to the majors. In New York last Dec. 29, a three-judge special sessions court ruled that Casey was the father of a son born out of wedlock to Hilda Weissman, 25-year-old brunette.

LOUIS, July 3 — Bill Veeck went "over the top" today in his stock drive to buy the St. Louis Browns. An important stockholder, who had been a stubborn hold-out in the deal, tossed in his 8,572 shares at noon to give Veeck more than the 75 per cent of Browns' stock he wanted. Now all he has to do is exercise an option he holds on the club and it is his. Herbert Waltke, the stockholder, had been one of the important holdouts in Veeck's deal to buy the club from the DeWitt brothers. Veeck had demanded a minimum of 206,000 of the total 275,000 shares of stock. He was about 5,000 short when Waltke decided to sell his stock and assure Veeck's ownership.

Including Sunday's games Minoso had a .355 average to Fain's .352. In the see-saw battle for the top spot Fain topped Minoso .358 to .356 a week ago. The top 10: Player, Club Minoso, Chicago Pain, Philadelphia Fox, Chicago By JOE REICHLER AP Sports Writer All Murry Dickson needs to become the first pitcher in 48 years to win 20 games for a last place National League club is 10 more victories and the cooperation of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The last- place Bucanneers, of course, must remain in the cellar. The 33-year-old righthander notched his tenth triumph lust night to lead a large list of individual achievements in an unusually active Monday of baseball. Here are some of last night's highlights as every club but Detroit and the St. Louis Browns saw action. 1. ALLIE REYNOLDS' scoreless streak was snapped at 32 1/3 innings and he walked his first batter in 37 2/3 innings. But he gave the New York Yankees a full game lead in the American League race by stopping the Philadelphia Athletics, 14-5. It was Reynold's sixth straight victory. 2. CLEVELAND CATCHER JIM HEGAN scored all three runs as the Indians nipped the Chicago White Sox, 3-2 with the aid of Lou Brissie's perfect relief hurling for 2 1/3 innings. 3. ROOKIE SOUTHPAW LEO KIELY, in his first big league start, pitched the third-place Boston Red Sox to a 5-2 victory over Washington" as Vern Stephens hit his third big league homer in spacious Griffith Stadium. The win cut Chicago's second - place margin to 2^ games. 4. GIL HODGES clouted his j 25th homer for Brooklyn to help Preacher Roe beat Boston's Braves, 6-1, for the southpaw's 11th victory against only one de-: feat. The homer put Hodges a j game ahead of Babe Ruth's 1927 pace when the Bambino hit his record 60 homers. 5. JIM HEARN of the Giants whipped his Philadelphia 'cousins' for the 10th time in 11 decisions, 4-3. but he needed relief help'from George Spencer as well as Bobby Thomson's 11th homer in the sixth inning with a man on base. It was the second straight day Thomson won a game with a homer. 6. PETE CASTIGLIOXE hatted in three Pittsburgh runs with a single, double and triple, and scored twice to lead the Pirates to their 7-2 win over the Chicago Cubs. 7. STAN MUSIAL raised his league-leading batting mark to .370 with two singles and drove in two St. Louis runs as the Cardinals downed the Cincinnati Reds, 8-2. A home run by Ransom Jackson with one on in the seventh deprived Dickson of a shutout but the little curve- baller rang; up his 10th win. Since Pittsburgh still has 87 games left of its schdeule, Dickson stands a fair chance of gaining 20 wins. Only two pitchers ever won 20 or more games for a last place National League club. Noodles Harn copped 22 for the 1901 Reds and Bob Wicker won 20 for the 1903 Cardjnals. The American League has had three. Scott Perry won 21 for the 1918. Athletics, Howard Ehmke registered 20 for the 1923 Red Sox and Sloppy Thurston rang up 20 for the 1924 White Sox. The Yankees belted Bobby Shantz, Alex Kellner and Johnny Kucab for 20 hits, including two homers by Hank Bauer and one by Gene Wood- "ng. Mike Garcia recorded his eighth win for the Indians and drove in Hegan with what proved to be the winning run with a double in the sixth. The Dodgers clubbed Johnny Sain and Bob Shipman for 14 hits as they retained their 5V2-game lead in the National League. Boston manager Tommy Holmes suffered his first ejection, along with Tribe first baseman Earl Torgerson, for arguing a decision with umpire Lon Warneke in the first inning.
