Chattanooga Lookouts pull- Senators Hope to Overtake Fast-Moving Boston Red Sox BY CARL LUNBQWIST United Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, May 23. (UP) — There was an understandable difference of opinion today between manager Ossle Bluegc of Washington and Connie Mack of Philadelphia as to just how good those rampaging Red Sox from Boston really are. '• Mack, who Is glumly resigned to* seeing his poor old Athletics finish In the cellar once more, thinks that the Red Sox will cop the 1946 American League .flag. ; "I believe the teams will wind up in just about the positions they occupy now," he said. "'Hie Red Sox are a wonderful ball club. I have found everybody rooting for them to come through. In fact, I'd like to see them win myself.*' Bluegc, whose Senators can take over second place by beating the Yankees today, has designs on that flng himself und doesn't concede a thing to Red Sox boss, Joe Cronln. "Boston can't keep going like it has," he said. "Those boys arc hitting over their heads and there arc some spark an eight run rally In the fifth. Even more heartening to the Cardinals was the return to form of little Ted Wilks, who pitched seven and two-thirds scoreless relief Innings for his first win after taking over when starter Johnny Beazlcy got wild In the second.

It was tl)e first time the Giants had won there this season, pitcher Dave Koslo gained the decision over Dodger rookie, Joe Hatten when the Giants rallied late to win, two runs coming In the ninth on triples by Buddy Blattner and Jack Graham. Babe Young got four hits and Howie chultr. made three for Brooklyn Including a homer.
