10 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS MONDAY, JULY 9, 19 v 51 if Paris Too Tough For Kings - Scores: 5-3 And 12-5 ML VERNON ALMOST PULLS FIRST GAME OUT OF FIRE AFTER TWO OUT IN NINTH Powerful Lakers Continue Drive Which Led To First- Half Title By Collecting 27 Hits In Two Weekend Games; Brookman And Heistand Are King Losers; Hawleymen In Three-Way Tie For Second. There is little doubt in the minds of Mt. Vernon baseball fans as to why the Paris Lakers' won the first-half championship of the M-O-Valley League. Tom Sunkel's Lakers feature some fair pitching, they make very few mistakes in the field and they have power-to-burn at the pla'te with seven of their eight regulars hitting in the league's Top Twenty and any one of the seven capable of hitting the long ball. Any one of the eight, in fact, because rightfielder Marvin Sprigg. who ranks below the Top Twenty, has clouted one homer against the Kings. The Lakers got only two homers against Mt. Vernon on the weekend but they did collect 27 hits in sweeping a two- game series by scores of 5-8 and 12-5. It was the sixth straight victory for' the Paris club over Chuck Hawley's crew last night.

PARIS SCORE BY INNINGS Mti VERNON 000 301 301 022 000 302 final week of the firsthalf pennant raee. ! ] The two setbacks dropped Mt. Vernon into a three-way tie for second place in the 3V1-0-V standings. The Kings Had started the .second half .with two victories over Vin- 3cennes before encountering 'the Paris roadblock. The wins jumped Paris into a ficst-place tie with the Mattoon Indians who finished dead last in the first-half pennant scramble. Mattoon took a pair from Danville on the weekend while Centralia bagged a couple of one-run decisions from Vincennes. The Vels, who finished fourth in the first-half, have gotten off to four straight defeats in hinal-half competition. Though the Lakers notched 11 hits off Frank 'Lefty' ' Brookman in Saturday night's game; Mt. Vernon could have won with a couple of breaks. ' Brookman took his fifth loss of the season but he held the potent Lakers hitless for three innings with the help of a sensational catch by Pete Milinkov of Mike Krsnich's drive up against the left field wall in the second inning. Kings Miss Chances The Kings, meanwhile, got two men on base with one out in the second, then loaded the bases with one out in the third but both times failed to score off Paris chucker Harold Gordon. Strikeouts in the clutch foiled both scoring chances wn'en a long fly or a hard ground bail would have produced important runs. Paris broke through with five singles for three runs in the fourth Team W Mattoon 3 Paris 3 Mt.

It was 3-1 until the top of the ninth. DeRusse's Shabby Homer Krsnich opened the Lakers' ninth with a 'double but was thrown out. Solorzano to Fiehtel, when he tried for third on Duke Black's ground ball. Black was safe at first on the fielder's choice. Jack DeRusse then lifted a towering fly ball to right center. Finigan and Stevens both got near the ball and it appeared that either might make the catch. Neither did, however, and the ball rolled all the way to the wall. DeRusse circled the bases for an inside-the-park homer, scoring Black ahead of him to give Paris a 5-1 lead. When two Mt. Vernon pinch- hitters, Cassidy and Gaebe, were out to open the Kings' ninth, most of the fans seeing everything as hopeless had gone through the exits. But Fiehtel singled. Popovich walked. Solorzano was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Given slashed a hit to left, scoring two runs and the tying runs were on base. Milinkov sliced one high and far down the left field line and De­ Russe made a great running catch to end the game. If DeRusse had been a step slower the Kings would have tied the score because both runners would have scored on the drive into the left field corner. Last night's game was almost 'no contest' for the Lakers. Charley Heistand, starting for Mt. Vernon, was kayoed in the first inning. Earl Hall, Butch Lohman and Brookman followed Heistand in the hill. Paris had an 8-0 lead before Mt. Vernon finally broke through on hurler Easy Ed Wilson for three runs in the seventh. The Lakers got 16 hits during the gamp and played errorless ball afield. Quincy Smith homered in the fourth inning with two aboard for the Lakers. The Kings collected nine hits, all singles, and booted four times in the field.

July 9 — An All-Star team meets the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight in a benefit game for ex - major leaguer Julius (Moose) Solters, blinded by an injury on the baseball field. The 43 year old Solters, who runs a tavern here, was hit by a thrown ball 10 years ago while he was playing with the Chicago White Sox. Since then he has lost his sight completely and spent thousands of dollars trying to re gain it. The proceeds from tonight's gates will go to help him weather financial stresses. In his big league career, Moose played also with the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox and'St. Louis Browns. Of the All-Stars only one is not a former Pirate. The exception is Indian pitcher Bob Feller, who olunteered his services in behalf of an old Cleveland teammate. Pirate alumni include Cliff Chambers. Wally Westlake and Stan Rojek, St. Louis Cardinals; Johnny Berardino and Dale Long. Browns; Johnny Hopp and Gene Woodling, New York Yankees; Hank Borowy, Detroit Tigers; Bob Elliott, Boston Braves; Dixie Howell. Cincinnati Reds: and Clyde Kluttz, Washington Senators.

Stove Co. vs. Salem Elks (tourney championship). Ina vs. Woodlawn. Browns Again Just Short of WhiteSox 5 4 Cards Nip Pirates 9-8 After Dropping Opener 6-2. Since Bill Veeck came to St. Louis the other day, the Browns have been giving out with that old "college try" but like Bill said, to begin with, they've been just a little short. Yesterday the Brownies twice took the lead from he American League pacers, the Chicago White Sox. but each time Paul Richards' boys forged to the front and ended up with a 5-4 decision. The Brownies overtook a one- run lead and went ahead in the third, coming up with their first three-run inning in their last 23 games. But it wasn't enough because the Sox came right back to tie is up in the fourth. Ex-Brownie Don Lenhardt hit a homer. First Baseman Hank Arft tripled and scored on third baseman Fred Marsh's fly to the outfield to put the Browns ahead, 4-3, again in the last of the fourth. But Chicago picked up one in the seventh and another in the eighth and that settled it. Southpaw Tommy Byrne, Brownie starter, pulled a right leg muscle and left the game after four innings. Bob Mahoney, his successor, was tagged for nine hits and two runs and was charged with the defeat. i, Chicago's victory gave them the series, 3-1. and enabled them to hold a one-game lead over Boston and a two-game lead over New- York. Second baseman Red Schoendienst hit two consecutive homers, his first of the season, to give the Cardinals a 9-8 victory over the Pirates in their second game at Pittsburgh yesterday. They dropped the first one, 6-2. Schoendiest equalled a major league record by poling his first homer left-handed against former Cardinal Ted Wilks in the sixth and then, swinging right-handed against southpaw Paul La Palme, blasting his second in the seventh. This Is Million $ Week For Citation By Associated Press INGLEWOOD, Calif, July 9 — This is the week for Citation to become the first million dollar winner in horse racing It is the week of the $100,000 Hollywood Gold Cup and the chance for Citation to realize the dream of his late owner, Warren Wright and the still burning de- ire of the wealthy turfman's widow and son. The Gold Cup comes off Saturday. Citation, barring any. mshap this week, will go into the mile and one quarter classic with earnings of $985,760 behind him That is just $14,240 short of the $1,000,000 mark. The guranteed net of a hundred grand to the win ner will more than suffice. First in the Gold Cup is what the Calumet Farm people want But even second, with its $20,000, would send him over the top.

Vernon Stove Co. and ; hits and has allowed only one run the Salem Elks will clash at 7:30 i to cross tne Plate in 21 innings Tuesday night at the city park- diamond for the championship of the annual Moose softball tournament. The Stovemakers advanced to the finals Saturday night by beating Wayne City, 2-0, and the Elks climbed into the championship round by blasting the Salem Lightning Butane. 7-0. The Stovemakers and Salem Elks are the only teams left from a field of 16 which started a week ago in the $360 softball extravaganza sponsored by the Mt. Vernon Moose Lodge. Salem defeated the Carmi Mallette Flyers, the Centralia Night Owls and the Salem Butanes on their way to the championship game. The Stove Co. eliminated McLeansboro Ventress Motors, the Mt. Vernon Auto-Lites and Wayne City on their way to the title contest. Great Pitching Jobs The championship games will see two fine pitchers in action, Roy Hayse of Mt. Vernon and Plumlee of Salem. In pitching three complete games in the tournament, Plumlee has given up a total of only 11 Hayse, who is pitching for the Stove Co. while on furlough from the U. S. Army, has allowed only three runs to score against his team in three full games. Both Hayse and Plumlee were masters of the situation in the semi-finals as they hurled shutout ball. Hayse gave up five hits to Wayne City, but had what it takes every time he got into trouble. Garner of Wayne City also pitched fine five-hit ball. The Stovemakers got the only runs of the ball game in the first inning on Allen England's hit, a sacrifice by Jones, a Wayne City throwing error and a fly bill. Only player in the game to make more than one hit was Karcher, Wayne City shortstop, who doubled and singled in three trips. Plumlee Wins Again Plumlee tossed a three-htiter at the Salem Butanes as the Salem Elks breezed by the semi-finals. The Elks got only six hits off of Barry, Butane hurler, but they bunched them in three innings to make them count for seven runs and an easy win. Shortstop Myers paced the winners with a single and double in three trips. By JOE REICHLER AP Sports Writer DETROIT, Juh 9 — Baseball's top players, assembling for tomorrow's all-star game between the National and American Leagues, will combine business with pleasure. Even while managers Eddie Sawyer of the National and Casey Stengel of the American are announcing their starting pitchers and batting orders, player representatives of all 16 clubs, for the first time, will sit down with the owners to discuss common problems. Many of the delegates are members of the ail-star cast. Detroit's Freddie Hutchinson, American League player representative, js a candidate for starting honors. Stengel, however, is expected to name either Ned Garver, St. Louis righthander. or southpaw Ed Lopat of his own New York Yankees. Don Newcombe. big Brooklyn righthander, is expected to be Sawyer's selection. The rest of the lineup is alreadv set by a vote of over 4,000.000 fans. The game is assured' of a sellout of some 52,000. The receipts are expected to approach $150,000, already pigeonholed for the player pension fund. The same fund also gets the $6,000,000 television fee for the next six World Series and All-Star Games. The players were anxious for the owners to name a successor to A. B. (Happy) Chandler, who will vacate the Commissioner's office as the great protector of their interests. The owners, however, are not expected to name a Commissioner for some time. They are content to let the game be governed by the executive council until they feel they are sure they have found the right man. The committee named to screen candidates for a Commissioner said it will not meet here. Although hampered by injuries to catcher Yogi Berra and outfielder Joe DiMaggio of the Yankees, and shortstop Chico Car- rasquel of the Chicago White Sox, the American Leaguers ruled a 75 favorite to gain their 13th victory in 18 classics Hunch players pointed out that the Nationals, who defeated the Americans, 4-3, in 14 innings last year, have never won two in a row. They copped in 1936. 1938, 1940, 1944 and 1950. The two leagues met separately yesterday and laid legal groundwork for the House of Representative Monopoly Committee hearings opening in Washington the end of July when baseball's method of operation will come in for searching study. The leagues also heard Pacific Coast League representatives present their case for exemption from the baseball draft. No announcement was made of what action, if any, was taken. Paul Porter, former head of the Federal Communications Commission, addressed each league and discussed with the attorney's baseball's legal problems — such as the attacks on its reserve clause and the radio - television problem which are instigating frequent law suits. The following batting order was announced by manager Eddie Sawyer of the Philadelphia Phillies and manager Casey Stengel of the New York Yankees who will handle the opposing teams: NATIONAL LEAGUE Ashburn, Phillies, cf, .355 Dark, Giants, ss, .319 Musial, Cards, If, .369 Robinson.

By RALPH RODEN AP Sports Writer Can the Boston Red Sox do it this time? That's the question fans are asking today as the thrilling American League Pennant race takes time out for the All-Star Game. One again the Red Sox are riding high, threatening to take command. But in the background is an old Red Sox jinx — an extended road trip, graveyard of Rod Sox' pennant hopes since 1946. The Red Sox fanned anew their pennant dreams yesterday by beating the New York Yankees, 6-2. The victory was their eighth straight at home over the Yanks and the 13th in their last 17 starts. By winning, the Red Sox took over second place from the slumping Yanks and remained a game behind the front-running Chicago White Sox who posted a tough, 5-4 decision over the last-place St. Louis Browns. The Yanks a.e two games behind, and their third place position is endangered by the onrushing Cleevland Indians who took a doubleheador from their Detroit: Tiger "cousins," 8-3 and 10-2. The Indians are only four games out of first place. Boston, in dumping the Yankees boosted its Fenway Park record to 30-10, a .750 record. Away from their friendly confines, the Red Sox have won only 17 and lost 19 for a second division, .472 gait. The Red Sox clash head on with the White Sox after Tuesday's All- Star Game interlude. They open a 13-game swing through the west with a four-game series in Chicago starting with a twi-night, doubleheader Thursday. While the American League race tightened up yesterday, the Brooklyn Dodgers pulled 8 V 2 games away from the runnerup New York Giant.s in the National. The Dodgers downed the Philadelphia Phillies. 6-4, in ten innings as the Giants dropped a 6-5 decision to the Boston Braves, also in 10 innings. The St. Louis Cardinals split a pair with the Pittsburgh Pirates, losing 1 the opener. 6-2, but winning the nightcap, 9-8. A doubleheader between Chicago and Cincinnati was rained out. In "remaining American League action, the Washington Senators humbled the Philadelphia Athletics twice. 3-1 and 8-2. A crowd of 29.S-1.'? fans saw the Yanks nick Ray Scarborough, who turned in his second complete game of the season, for 3-0 lead in four innings. But two-run homers by Lou Boudreau and Clyde Vollmer in the fifth and sixth innings off Vic Raschi turned the tide for the Red Sox. Vic Raschi was charged with his sixth loss. Chicago also overcame a deficit to beat the Browns. The Sox trailed. 4-3. entering the seventh when they tied the score. They won out in the eighth on two singles and former Brownie Bob Dillinger's run-scoring fly. Early Wynn and Mike Garcia turned back the Tigers before 41,154 in Detroit. The Indians scored five runs in the seventh inning on five hits and a walk to snap a 3-3 tie and win the opener. Mike Garcia breezed to his tenth victory in the nightcap, called after eight innings because of darkness. Larry Doby supplied the punch with a pair of home runs. The Indians now have won 13 of 14 from the Tigers. Jackie Robinson of the Dodgers belted a home run with Duke FANPiNGS NATIONAL LEAGUE W L Pet.
