Ill Mulberry Potter-Lanier Duel in Second Game of Series Cards Leader Juggles Bat List in Attempt to Make l'p2-lLoss; Potter Goes on Mound for Browns SPORTSMAN'S PARK, SI. I.ouls. Manager Hilly Souihworlh of the Cardinals today benched iJanny and Installed Angle IJcrga-ino In leftfield as the Cards squared off against the lirowus for the second game of the all-St. Louis World Series. There appeared to be 35.000 cus tomers In the stands. In an attempt tu mend his fences following yesterday' 2-to-l loss. Southworth also juggled his halting order, going back to the lineup of hitters he used when Litwhiler was benched during the waning days of the regular season because of a knee injury. Southworth sent Max Lanier to the mound, to oppose Luke Sewcll 's pitching nominee, Nelson l'otter. f SPORTSMAN'S PARK, St. Louis. Mo. Having lost with Mort Cooper, his best piLcher, Manager Hilly Southworth of the Cardinals pieked lefty -Mar Lanier, who Is supposfd to be on the verge of infirmity, to oppose the Browns today in the second game of the all-St. Louis World Series. I Browns I'tie potter 1 Manager Luke Sewell, of the! Browns, sought to make it two straight and a virtual clincher with right handed Nelson Potter. He won nineteen and lost seven this season. The selection of Lanier for this appearance fn the so-called "full classic" was even more of a surprise than the naming of Denny (J a I eh o use to pitch the opener for the Browns yesterday, for Lanier lost his last five starts of the recently concluded season and didn't even finish the Cards' last road trip, although his record is an impressive seventeen wins against twelve losses. Haiti J tetter than (ialelioiiNu He was sent hack to St. Louis from the east to undergo treatment for a lame arm and a hack which was stretched out of kilter when he sought to shag an outfield fly. There Is nothing wrong with Poller, a- Brown mainstay down the American League stretch and, according to many, a better liurler by far than fjalehouse, who won yesterday's series opener, 2 to 1. Besides losing In the stretch and winding up in the adhesive tape department, Lanier has never been too effective in the world series. Against the New York Yankees in 1942 he hurled four innings for one win a-gainst no defeats. Last season against the Yanks he went through 15 1-3 Innings to a defeat, with no victories. He probably has more stuff than any pitcher on either roster, but Mort Cooper isn't exactly handcuff ed and he couldn't do anything with I the Browns yesterday beyond losing : a two hitter for the seven innings lie was in there. His mistake was in permitting a fourth inning single by Gene Moore followed by a home run to the right field roof by Ceorge McQuinn. J)iab First Game It was actually a drab ball game, stirring as it may seem to know that the Browns won with only two hits. That was all they needed, and Cooper quickly was turned from a budding hero into a gout headed for the showers, as a pinch hitter hatted for him., Ultimately one Sylvester Don nelly, a rookie, came in to hurl the concluding innings by the Cards, by whigu time the game had been won and'Jost. TUo Card run was scored In the ninth. Shbrtfitop Slats Marion made his feerond double of the day when Mike Krevich missed a diving catch. Marfan advanced on an out and scored after the patch on pinch hitter K'en O'Pea's fly. (bMjoiisp Allows Seven The Cards through it all were limited to seven hits by the unruffled (alehouse, who stalked around out there on the pitching mound as though nothing mattered and he generally saw to it that nothing happened. He had a couple of bad innings, notably the third when Johnny Hopp and Hay Sanders hit successive siui;(u lo open the inning and miianrcd on Stan Mural's sacrifice. With only that on1 out. Walker Cooper was walked to fill the j bases, then Whih-y Kumuskl in-! gloriously fanned and funny Lit-whihT hit into a force play. Outside of that and a brief and unimportant minor threat in tin1 second and seventh Hie Cards were rather thoroughly subdued alt afternoon in a none too thrilling tussle for the 33.0OD spectators made up mostly of local kibitzers. Cooper Strikes Out 4 Mort Cooper struck out four hitters in his seven innings, including Kreevieh and Chet Laabs in the first inning, but he also walked three besides making the mistake of laying one in there for McQuinn. His performance actually was less spectacular than fialehouse's. The latter had a shutout until the ninth. Only lust week he shut out the Yankees to put the Browns in an American League tie and set the stage for their ultimate pennant triumph. The Browns appeared to be the steadier ball cluh in the opener, if that is any indication, of what is likely to happen from here on. Neither side made an error, but the Browns started and finished with' nine men and front, whereas the j I i OVE IT P0OB IN WEj loOM'T BOP H.KI AT ONCE A I FOR REMEM- ML ,OI a a wsm wa 501rvK5 "YD COVER UP 1 I 1 .
