THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 22,1952. Faltering Yanks Hard Pressed As Lead Dwindles Rapidly Indians Are Stepping up In Hot Drive By RALPH RODEX Associated Press Sports Writer A month ago the Cleveland Indians were pronounced dead as an American League pennant threat. Today, the Indians could well recall Mark Twain's famous quotation: "Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated." The Indians appeared to' be knocked from contention on Black Tuesday July 22 as they dropped Mike Garcia a doubleheader to the New York Yankees and fell 7% games behind the Bombers. Cleveland, trailing the Yanks by one game, could take over the lead by one percentage point by beating the Bombers in a 2-game series opener Friday. Big Mike Garcia (15-8) has been nominated to face the Yanks' Allie Reynolds (15-7) in the first game. Early Wynn (16-10) is scheduled to go against New York's Vic Raschi (14-3) in the concluding game Saturday. Both the Indians and Yanks suffered defeats Thursday. The third place Boston Red Sox knocked off the Indians, 4-1, and the Chicago White Sox upset the Yanks, 6-1, to sweep a three-game series. Washington and St. Louis divided a twi- night doubleheader, the Senators winning the first game, 3-2, and the Browns the second, 8-1. In the National League, the Chicago" Cubs impeded New York's pennant bid by splitting a doubleheader with the Giants, winning the first game, 8-6, but losing the second, 10-5. The Mexican standoff kept the Giants seven games behind front-running Brooklyn. The Dodgers' game with Pittsburgh was rained out Philadelphia and Cincinnati were idle while in the circuit's only night game, St. Louis ! •JUST LIKES SPEARING FISH—A.pair of oxygen cylinders strapped to his back, Robert Travis Keagle of Minneapolis spears carp with a rubber-powered harpoon in Minnesota's Lake Minnetonka.

The, Red Sox nicked Gromek for all of'their . eight hits and runs in seven innings. The Yanks conserving their best pitchers for Cleveland, opened with a second liner for the third straight time and failed. Rookie Tom Gorman was beaten in the first inning and had no one to blame but himself. Gorman walked home one run • and his wild throw permitted two more White Sox players to score. The three runs were more than Billy Pierce required. The ace Chicago lefthander held the Yanks to five hits in gaining his first triumph in six attempts over the world champions.

Yankees Still Have the Stuff For Pennant By JOE REICHLER NEW YORK Iff) — Despite his team's three straight victories over the New York ager Paul Richards of the White Sox still believes the faltering World champions should win the American League pennant. "I'm not saying the Yankees will win it, mind you," he emphasized, "All I say is that they could win it. But so can Cleveland or Bos:on. And don't count us out of it. We can win it, too. As a matter of 'act, it would be no miracle to me if the Philadelphia Athletics were to beat us all out. "The Yankees have the strongest 'ineup. Besides they've got the confidence and experience of champions. They don't tighten in the crucial games. They've been all through this sort of stuff before. "They've got to get better pitch, ng than they've shown us, however. They can't do it with Reynolds and Raschi alone. The key 0 their chances is Eddie Lopat. 1 he can pitch five good games for them, then we all might as well 3Ut out the fire and call the dogs lome. "The way I see it, the club that vill win the pennant is the one hat can come up with a hot player. It doesn't matter whether that player is an oufielder, an infielder, a catcher or a pitcher. "That's why I say you can overlook those Athletics. They'v ;ot that hot player in Bofafa Shantz. He gives the rest of th earn that drive, that incentiv The A's instinctively play bette ball when he's pitching. Some imes even a fellow like Shant on the bench can inspire a team 7oe DiMaggio was like that. "That's also why you've got t vatch Luke Easter of Cleveland is their answer to the pennan le's hitting like mad right now If he keeps on hitting, the Indian hould do it. He's got to hit fo them to win it. He's a liabilit itherwise. He can't field, he can 'Un. But if he continues to hit lik B did against us last week and i doing now in Boston, watch out.
