PAGE SIX Dodgers Defeat Giants 9 to 8 Cardinals Trounced By Cubs as Feature •Of Games in Majors NEW YORK, April 28. <Ul>> — Major league teams traveled today toward te first intcrsectionjil games of 1947, with the American League going West and Die National Lca- gve coming East—and the Brooklyn Dodgers were girding for their first real tests. < N the Dodgers edged the Giants yesterday, 9 to 8, to hold their one- game lead over the Chicago Cubs, who trimmed the Cardinals, 3 to 0. Western teams filled out the rest of the first division—Pittsburgh third and Cincinnati fourth- The Phils and Braves, favorite "fall guys" for te Dodgers, were next • and the world champion Cards were tied for the cellar with the Giants, who have broken even with the Dodgers In four games. ' Western teams—particularly the Cards and Cubs—were tough foi ihe Dodgers Inst year and Brooklyn stayed in the race only by taking 17 to 21 from both the Braves "and Phils and 15 of 21 from the .Giants. The same formula is working this year—Bbston and the Phils haven't beaten Brooklyn yet. Yesterday's Dodger victory was scored in true Durocher fashion, although the deposed Llppy was "far away. A ninth-inning squeeze . bunt by Eddie Stanky brought In •Marv Rackley from third base with the winning run to climax a courageous comeback after the Gia'l s Jed by 8 to 4 starting the seventh inning, carl rurillo's two-run homer In the seventh made it 8 to G, Cookie Lavagctto's homer, a walk and Pete Reiser's double tied it in the eighth, and relict pitcher Gene Thompson gave up two walks, then hit a batman to fill the bases in .the ninth. Two were out when Stanky bunted. Cards Lose Another '. Johnny schrnilz' four-hi'. pitch- Ing was too much for the Cardinals. 'Bill Nicholson doubled home the first Cub run, and two more scored in the eighth on Andv Paf- Vo's single, a walk, Stan Musial's Chicks to Ploy Gosnell Nine at Air Base Tuesday The IMythevillc Chicks open the second half of the Mississippi lounty High School Baseball LKM- gu c when they meet the Gosncll Pirates at (he Air Base diamond omcrrow afternoon. The Chicks defeated the Pirates 16 to 1 In the two teams first encounter. This, however, was both teams' first game of the season and neither team played sattslac- tory ball. Leon Walcton, elongated Ictthaml- er of the Chicks, will probably get the starting nod (rom Coach Joe Whilley with Lloyd Koontz probably ' aoing the receiving. Waldon who has seen service in two game? as a relief hurler, will be making hi s first start tomorrow, if lie doua get the nod from Whitley. -Handicapped by a useless arm, the big southpaw catches throws and btts with his left hand He drew cheers from tlie fans ii the Chicks' first game with tin Pirates when he stepped to Hi' plate, took a one handed swm al tlic ball and drove a long sin gle into left field.
