ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH PART TWO ST. LOUIS, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1941. PAGES 1 4B rxn irst U0V1 Game s fo) j. Mhwss- wisb j s Mil V Brookyn's Rally in Ninth Brings Victory PITTSBURGH, Sept. 17. The Brooklyn Dodgers today defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in the opener of a two-game series between the two clubs. The score was 6 to 4. Curt Davis was picked to start fnr the Dodgers and he - drew J southpaw Ken Heintzelman as his nvai. Pittsburgh took advantage or some loose defensive play and scored twice in the second inning. Garms opened with a single and Fletcher walked only to be forced by Martin. Garms overran third but Herman's throw to third was wild and Garms scored. Martin advanced to second and, after Di-Maggio was hit by a pitched ball, counted on a single by Lopez. Scoreless for three innings, Brooklyn broke the ice in the fourth when, with one down Lava-getto doubled and scored on Ca-milli's triple. Heintzelman then settled down and prevented further scoring. Both teams had scoring chances after the fourt, but were unable to send runners over the plate, until the Pirates made a third tally in the eighth on Fletcher's rouble, a sacrifice and DiMaggio's long fly. Then, in the ninth, the Dodgers, as is their recent custom, cut loose with a furious attack. Pinch-Hitter Galan began with a double and scored on a singleby Reese. Reese took third when Herman singled. Reiser's triple sent Reese and Herman homeand Seweli replaced JU Heintzelman. Reiser held' third as y Sledwick grounded out and when Lavagetto hit to uustme, reiser was out at the plate. Camilli was purposely passed and Walker walked to fill the bases. Riggs batted for Owen and singled, scoring Lavagetto and CamillL Washington agin took the lead in Its half of the fifth inning, scoring three runs on an error by Stevens, a walk to Vernon, singles by Ortiz and Early and Bloodworths grounder. The Pirates came back with a useless run in the ninth off Hamlin. $64 Winner 4 At Fairmount By Dent McSkimmlng FAIRMOUNT PARK, 111., Sept. 17. So spirited was the backing for Shadytown, Roidef and Grimal-di, three of the seven starters in the' first race here this afternoon, that the mare Margaret Nadi was completely overlooked. She went to the post at 25 to 1, came around the leaders at the stretch turn, won and paid off at $64.20 to $2. While Cantwell took the place and Shadytown the show money, Roidef had to be content with fourth. The day was dark but the track was fast About 4000 attended. 0 You Can't Blame Sam if He Weakens.

Offer Made to Nugent for Phils PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 17 (AP). An offer to buy the National League Phillies was mailed to Gerry Nugent today by Jack Kelly, national director of the civilian physical training program on behalf of a syndicate he heads. Nugent is with the Phillies at Cincinnati. Kelly, former champion Olympic sculler 20 years ago, declined to disclose the price his group offered the president of the Phils. "I think it is a very fair offer," Kelly said. "We want to buy all the outstanding 5000 shares of the club, and all the players. We are willing to take over the obligation of $20,-000 a year rental on old Baker Bowl that still has two years to run and also will assume the remaining three years of a radio contract to broadcast the Phillies' games. Otherwise, we want the club free of debts. If we are successful we are ready to put additional working capital into the club." - When the Phils moved to Shibe Park from Baker Bowl three years ago they agreed to pay $100,000, payable over a five-year period, in order to break a 99-year lease. Two years ago the Phils received a reported $200,000 for the privilege of permitting radio broadcasts for five years. Kelly declined "at this time" to name the members of his syndicate, except to say it includes "one person outside of Philadelphia. "We want to , give Philadelphia a winning ball club and I think Gerry is ready to talk business," Kelly said. use your own judgment about accepting the adjective. In the course of paying his respects to the club, the team, the city and the fans he says in part: "St. Louis is baseball's sweat shop. . . . A Cardinal victory would be a blow at organized labor's full dinner pail." "Imagine ' Missouri's sad sor-gum-and-molasses set in the world series with those rich Yankees. As Ed Barrow said: It would be tough if we lost the world series. . . . But it would be disgraceful to lose to the WPA." "Hopp gets $4500 a year, Medwlck gets $20,000. . . . Crespl gets $4500, Billy Herman gets $15,000. . . . The rest of the salaries of all the players on both teams are equally different." "A Cardinal victory will have a drastic effect on baseball salaries everywhere. . . ". Brooklyn really is fighting for a standard of living," "The fans who fill Cardinal park are just as parsimonious as the owner of the plant. Cardinal fans actually revel in the cheap cost of their heroes." "The biggest cheers registered during Friday's game eame whenever a ball was hit into the grandstand. Getting something free delighted those Cardinal fans more than anything else." "After a week In St. Louis I don't even sympathize with the Cardinals. . . . Unfair, pass 'em Continued on Next Page. AUIIEIi FACES SENATORS' ROOKIE IVYNN SCORE BY INNINGS 123456789 BROWNS (at Washington) 210 0 203 WASHINGTON , 30103 0 By a Special Correspondent of the Post-Dispatch. WASHINGTON, Sept. 17. Elden Auker, who has done a lot of submarine pitching this season for the Browns - and has 14 victories and 14 defeats to show for it, faced the Senators here this afternoon in the first game of a series of two that will conclude the final 1941 Eastern trip for Luke Sewell's men. The Nats used a rookie named Early Wynn on the mound, and his catcher, of course, had to be Jake Early. Rick Ferrell caught for the Browns. The Browns produced two runs in the first inning when Rookie First Baseman Chuck Stevens smashed, a hit off the right-field fence after Don Heffner and Har-lond Clift had singled. Stevens streaked to third on the hit, but was called out for failing to touch second. ' Washington bounced back with three runs in its half of the inning, however, when George Case doubled and Hillis Layne, Cecil Travis, Mickey Vernon and Roberto Ortiz all singled. St. Louis tied the score in the second when Johnny Berardino tripled to left and scored as Rick Ferrell was thrown out. Washington took a 4-3 lead in the third on Vernon's bunt, an error by Berardino and Bloodworth's double that scored Vernon. Walter Judnich's single with Heffner on third and Clift on second gave the Browns two runs and a 5-4 lead in the fifth inning. Heffner reached first safely when Pitcher Wynn fumbled his grounder and Clift . walked, the runners advancing on Stevens infield tap. Masciocchi Wins Title. ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 17 (AP). Emil Masciocchi, Chicago, won the National Greenkeeping Superintendents' golf tournament at the Midland Hills Course yesterday with a 36-hole score of 69-75 144, two over par.

POLLET GAINS FOURTH VICTORY WHEN BIRDS SCORE FIVE IN EIGHTH By J. Roy Stockton SPORTSMAN'S PARK, Sept. 17. Tom Earley and the Braves gave Howard Pollet and the Cardinals a tough battle for seven innings this afternoon in the first game of a double-header, but the Boston defense fell apart in the eighth and five unearned runs gave the Redbirds a victory, 6 to 1. Pollet, scoring his fourth victory since he was called from Houston to help in the drive down the stretch, would have had a shutout,' his second as a Redbird, but an error by Martin Marion helped the Braves to an unearned run in the fifth inning. Masi was safe on a fumble by the shortstop, took second on a wild pitch and scored on Earley's single to right. Boston held this slender lead until the seventh, when Estel Crab-tree hit over the pavilion for his third home run of the season. - With one out in the eighth. Brown grounded to Hassett and was safe when Earley, taking the throw, failed to tak first. Hopp odubled Brown to third and after T. Moore sent a short fly to Gene Moore, Mize was passed intentionally. Hassett then fumbled and refumbled Crabtree's grounder, Brown and Hopp scoring. Crespi walked, filling the bases, and Marion's single drove in Mize and Crabtree, and Maneuso singled, scoring Crespi. Art Johnson then relieved Earley and ended the rally. The attendance was estimated at about 6500, including 3000 women. The first game: FIRST INNING BRAVES Sis-ti bunted safely along the third-base line.
