His none-on round tripper started the scoring in a 3-0 Cub victory Monday over the St. Louis Cardinals. Yesterday the Cards beat the Chicagoans 8-5 despite two! home runs by Serena good for three scores. Serena, 26, was out most of last season with a broken wrist. Jackson took over at third after Serena's 1951 injury and did so well throughout the season that he was tabbed a regular this year. Jackson started well this spring but his hitting fell off and Manager Phil Cavarrelta benched him in favor of Serena last Thursday. Hitting .315 Since then, "the Whip" Serena — so known for his fast throwing arm — has given every indication he intends to keep Jackson on the bench. He's hitting belter than 315, counting a few appearances earlier this season. Besides Bill's two roundtrippers yesterday, fans at Wrigley Field saw four others. The Cubs' Hank Sauer got one, and the Cardinals' Stan Musial, Enos Slaughter and Hal Rice connected for one each. Starter Johnny Klippstein lost his third game in six starts while Gerry Staley was going all the way for his eighth win in 10 decisions. Klippstein was succeeded by Bob Schultz and Dutch Leonard. Cavarretta sends Joe Hattcn (2-2) to the mound against Harry Brechecn (0-2) in the final game ot the Cubs-Cards series today. The Chicago While Sox, meanwhile, were chalking up their fifth victory in three days — and their third shutout in that period — with a 3-0 verdict last night over the Browns at SI. Louis. The Sox shut out the Detroit Tigers twice Sunday and beat the Browns twice Monday, including a final two-innings chore that completed a game which was suspended April 20. Single Was Enough Eddie Stewart's bases-loaded single gave the Sox two runs in the first inning last night and Eddie Robinson's fifth home run of the season accounted for the other in the ninth. The shutout was Saul Rogovin's fourth triumph against three defeats. The Brown's Ned Carver suffered his fifth straight defeat after two early shutout victories. Manager Paul Richards has chosen Chuck Stobbs U-2) to pitch probably against Bob Cain 13-3) in another game with the Browns tonight.

Maglie Whitewashes Brooklyn Bums. 3-0 By .JOE REICHLER Associated Prcsn Sports Writer If Brooklyn is distressed today blame it on New York's Salvatore Maglie. Sa. pitched the Giants to a 3-0 triumph over the Dodgers last night. Maglie gave the Brooks four meager hits, but cut down six of them via strikeouts. Sal's earned- run percentage is now 1.14. It not only was the Giants' sixth straight triumph, but it was their second in a row over their arch in- teihorough rival and it increased Iheir National League lead over the Brooks to a game and a half. For Maglie it was the ninth straight win. He has yet to taste defeat this soaM>n. (ihint.v <;ct six lilts The Ginnts got. only six hits off loser Ben Wncle and John Rutherford, but -.hey included homers by Willie Mays and Don Mueller. The latter singled and eventually brought in the third run in the ninth inning. Mays, who plays his last 1952 game for the Giants today before his induction Thursday, also doubled twice. Maglie's was not the only outstanding pitching performance yesterday Allie Reynolds of no-hit fame yielded only two safeties as he hurled the New York Yankees to a 7-2 victory over the Washington Senators. Both came in the fourth inning and accounted for the Nats' tallies. Yogi Brrra, Reynolds' battery- mate in his two no-hitters of last year, hit a pair of homers and a SAL MAGLIE double. Irv Noren, principal figure in the May 3 trade with Washington, chipped in two a two-run Lemon absorbed his fourth defeat after pitching five innings of hitless ball. Hal Newhouser, in relief, picked up his first victory. Gus Zernial's two run homer in the fifth and Eddie Jost's two-run double in the ninth gave rookie Harry Byrd his first win and the Philadelphia Athletics a 7-3 triumph over the Red So.x. Saul Rogovin pitched the Chicago White Sox to a six-hit, 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Browns. Eddie Stewart singled in two runs in the first and Eddie Robinson banged his fifth hbiner in the ninth. Nod Garver, who turned in shutouts in his first two starts, absorbed his fifth straight licking. Knos Lrnita Cardinals Enos Slaughter rapped four hits, including a home run, and Slan Musial also ,-'ame through with a four-bagger to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to an 8-5 win over the Chicago Cubs. Gerry Staley coasted to his eighth mound success.

Waterlower jumped off to a 2-0 lead in the first inning when Harry Fessler was safe on an error and Bob Astroth followed with a home run. In the fifth Fessler singled, Astroth was safe on an error, and consecutive singles by Ed Wendle and Herzog, followed by Schulz 1 infield out produced three more runs. Wohnlich fanned three and struck out three with Bloomer's double being the only extra base hit garnered by Collinsville off of Wild Bill. Beshears, the VFW huller, struck out three, walked one and gave up six hits. Four Collinsville errors hurt Beshears' cause considerably. The Watertower crew now has a 2-0 record and will be gunning for win number three when the Busch's crew, led by Pitcher Bill Lorsbach, comes to Alton Saturday night to meet the Dads.

BROOKLYN, May 2cU/P—The Brooklyn Dodgers, perplexed and bewildered by their inability to cope with the pitching of New York's Sal Maglie, were seeking the answer to still another mystery today. "U'ns Maglie aided arid nbettfd by cut-up baseballs in his spectacular 3-0 shutout win over the Brooks last nighl?" Ominous Cut* That was what several unidentified Dodgers insinuated today after an eagle-eyed and somewhat suspicions Dodger discovered that five of the used baseballs in the Dodger bnl-bag had ominous cuts on them, "I've never SPPII such cuts on » hall before," said one Dodger who did not want his name used. Manager Charlie Dressen of the Dodgers minimized the latest development, stating that the cuts could have come from a number of things. "Balls arr> always getting cut up in a game," said Dressen. "They could have been scuffed up when they hit against a railing or bounced off the brick background behind home plate." Mnglie professed ignorance of any cul-ups. "I didn't sen any cut-up baseballs." ho said. "But if I had, I certainly would have taken advantage of it." Threw It Out At one stage of the game, Jackie Robinson requested Plate Umpire Dusty Boggess to examine the ball Maglie was throwing. Boggess inspected the baseball, then threw it out. of play. "Some of them have an Idea thai Maglie is throwing a spitter," explained Dressen. "f kept watching for it but I didn't see anything." Maglie had an answer for that loo. "f wouldn't know how to throw a spitter." he said. \ DtMolay Player Hrabak.2b Vanata.2b Cushman.rf ELsen'ch,3b Temple,If Chlldcrs.c ( Nash.p Totals .

After winning five straight, Domino's absorbed their first defeat of the season when they were unable lo score against Niehaus, despite a fine two hit pitching job by their own Junior Poole.
