The Yankees don't think the Reds are in, even though they have a larger lead than the Bronx Bombers have in, the American League. The Yanks had an off day yesterday because of rain.

Outside' the locker room Joe Dl- Maggio wn.s lying on a trunk, looking at the celling. He is hitting ,408 nnd doesn't have a thing to worry nbout. "I'm going oul nfler tile balling title this year," said Joe. "I'm try- Ing to keep my average up above .400. I'm not trying for homers. Homers don't mean much unless they drive in runs. I am just try- Ing to meet the ball and get singles and doubles." Di Maggio has only nine homers, but his ninth Tuesday ngnlnst Ihe BroVns was one of the longest ever h(J. in the majors—a 440- foot blow near the second : exit In the left field bleachers. If Joe was 'only swinging tor "singles and doubles", "when he hit that one, It's just as well with the American League pitchers if he doesn't decide to swing for homers. Cincinnati' built its lend .back lo 10 games 5'esterdny, punching a double victory over the Dees, 6-1 and 9-8 (H innings).

Don Padgett's pinch homer with the bases loaded featured the Cards' win. The Phils halted n Pittsburgh rally in the ninlh with a double play to get under the wire safely. Bill Lee won No. 11 as the Cubs beat the, Dodgers. 3-1. Lee gave up ;only five hits. Rip Russell's single with the bases loaded drove in the Cubs' two. big runs. Scoring six runs In the last two Innings, the White Sox came from behind to beat the Red Sox, 12*7. It may have been a costly win, as Mike Kreevich was injured when he crashed into the wall chasing 1 fly. Jimmy Foxx hit homer No. 24. Clint Brown, making his 39th mound appearance, set the Red Sox on their ears in the last 3!(. innings alter coming in with the bases jammed in the sixth. .Detroit hammered out an 8-1 victory over Washington, triples by McCoy, Greenberg, McCoskey, and Tebbetts featuring their attack.
