Following up Kenny Raffcnsber- gcr's opening day performance, Walters called on another lefty, John Vander Meer, yesterday. The 33-year-old veteran responded with a five-hit shutout, 5-0.

The Yankees replacements came through to give Manager Casey Stengel a third straight victory over Washington, 2-1. Johnny Lindell, playing in DiMaggio's old spot in centerfielri, started the wtnnins rally against Forest Thompson with a single in the last of the ninth. After an error. Hank Bauer. Charley Keller's sub In left field, came through with a game-ending double. Cleveland warmed up for its home opener ni^ninst Detroit today by ilumiping' St. Louis, 8-2. with the help of homers by Larry Doby and Joe Gordon.
