PA£E SIX iiliams May Be Rookie Of; Year But Keller Choice Of Several By GEORGE KIRKSKV Dnllsd. Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Aug. Ifi. (UP)—Few baseball critics dispute (lie nomination of Ted Williams, lanky Red Sox youngster, as Die rookie of the year, but n few still believe they'd rather liave Charley Keller, Die Yanks' swarthy, powerfully built youngster, for the long haul. Breaking into the lineup of Hie three-times world champion -Yankees was no cinch, but Keller, alter playing en and off during Hie first 3W months of the season, now lias won a permanent fob in the New York outer patrol, Jcc McCarthy benched Tommy Henrich for Keller two weeks ago, mid since then tlie Maryland boy hits clouted u /HO clip, leading all Yankees In hitting, Keller's scascn murk for 67 games and 235 times at bat is .339. Keller hits a terrific line delve- sizzling liners that endanger the life and limb of rival infielders. Ho does not have the power that Williams docs but he Is faster. Keller, a left-handed hitter, slices the ball to left field a lot and because of his speed it's difficult to threw him out on any ball hit to the left side al the Infield which isn't cleanly handled. This is his third year In professional baseball. He Jumped from the University of Maryland campus to the Newark Bears, where lie won the International League batting title his first .year mid hit .305 last season. Afield Keller is a good judge of a fly ball and his speed makes it difficult, to hit a ball over him. The Yanks' American League lead today was seven games, and the advantage was supplied by Keller's bat. He doubled with Hclfe on second in the 10th, driving in the run by which the Ynnks beat Washington, 3-2: It was his second lilt, having singled earlier. Joe Gotdc-n -hit homer No. 19. Gucrge Case stole base No. 42. With Buck Newsoin /hurling n three-hitter Detroit slnimned out a 12-3 victory over Cleveland. Twc of the Indians' three hits were homers by Trosky and Kcltner. The Tigers rapped Dobson' nnd Brbaca for 11 hits. The Bcston Red Sox fell seven games hehijul the .yanks when they were blanked, 3-0, by the Philadelphia Athletics before a crowd of 22,118 in a night game nt shibe Park. Lynn Nelson held (he Sox to fcm- hits. The A's reached Jack Wilson nnd Joe Hevlng for seven. Bob Johnson's triple scoring Wayne Ambler In (lie .sixth \yas the deciding blow. Cincinnati onme up with a lifesaver in John Niggellng, plucked from Indianapolis to aid in the pennant drive. The rookie rlghl- i.ianoer. went the route in, his ilrst start with the Reds and bent the Pirates,'6-5. He fanned six and walked three in oulpitciilng Bowman, Swift nnd Tobin. The St. Louis Cardinals kept T,B games behind the Reds by kncck- irig out a 7-G win In 1C timings over the Chicago Cubs. Slugging out six runs in the 'opening inning, Brooklyn downed the Giants, 8-5. Luke Hamltn went the route to win his 14th game, Pilicli hitter Gil Brack doubled with two mates on base to spark the Phillies' three-run rally in the eighth which enabled them to beat the Bees, 4-3. Brack's drive tied the score and then he counted the winning run on Morris Arnovich's single. * * * Yesterday's hcdo—John Niggellng.
