York A's Again Knock Yankees Out of Lead With Split as Cleveland Sweeps Pair fy JOE KEICHLER Associated Prew Sports Writer Philadelphia's carefree Athletics are going nowhere in the American League race but they are having a great deal to say which team will win the flag. Continuing; their role of "spoilers," Jimmy Dykes' seventh placers yesterday held New York to a split in their Labor Day double-header to dump the Yankees out of first place. Taking advantage of (he A's second game 3-2 win after the Yankees hart copped the opener, 3-1, the Cleveland Indians regained first place by sweeping a pair from Chicago's White Sox, 5-3 and 6-1, The Tribe now has a half-game lead on the Yankees but must keep a wary eye out for Boston's unpredictable Red Sox, who whipped Washington twice, 3-2 and 8-4, to climb within four and a half games of the top. The Red Sox, who open a three- game scries in New York tomorrow, are very much In the thick of things as they are only two games behind Cleveland in the important lost" column. They have played five fewer games than the Indians. Nine of their remaining games, however, are with the Yankees. Nsw York and Cleveland face each other only twice more. Brooklyn's Dodgers increased their first-place margin in the National League to six games over New York, defeating the Boston Braves twice by 7-2 scores white the Giants were dividing a pair with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Shanlz, Hooper Win Little Bobby Shantz and big Bob Hooper combined- to pitch Philadelphia's second - game triumph over the Yankees as the A's continued to have a lot o.f fun with contenders. Shantz did 'not permit a score until he weakened in the seventh. Then Hooper took over and retired the last eight Yankees to preserve the lefthander's Mth win- It marked the third time in three weeks that the A's had shoved (he Yankees off the top perch. Johnny Sain, veteran righthand- er, recently purchased from the Braves, made a brilliant Yankee i I debut, setting down the A's with five hit, 1 ; in the opener. A two-run homer by Hank Bauer proved the difference. A pair of singles by Ferris Fain were the key blows In the A's victory. Bob Feller registered his 21st victory and. Steve Qromek spun a brilliant three-hitter as the Indians nattered five Chicago hurlers for SI hits. Cleveland scored early in each game. Four runs In the first two innings iced the opener and five tallies in the first inning put away the nightcap. A second- Inning homer by Ray Coleman spoiled Qromek's shutout bid. Clutch hitting oy Walt Dropo, Dom DiMaggio and Bobby Doerr plus pinch pitching by Ellis Kinder helped the Red Box win two despite the absence of grippe-ridden Ted Williams. Dropo's homer with a man on base climaxed a three-run first inning when Boston scored all its nins in the opener. DiMaggio and Doerr balled in two runs apiece in the nightcap. Kinder successfully relieved winners Mel Parnell arvd Chuck Stobbs in each game. Spark. Bams Jerry Priddy's double in the 13th off Ned carver scored Johnny Groth with the run that won the first game for Detroit, Fred Marsh's two-run single in the sixth gave the Browns their split.
