Defense Keeps Leaders up in Pennant Race By JOE BEICHLEB AP Sports Writer Know what's keeping the Yankees and Dodgers in first place? Pitching? Nope. Hitting? Nope. Okay, we'll tell you. It's the fielding—just plain old-fashioned defense. Before the start of the season those who picked New York anc Brooklyn to win the pennants predicted the Yankees would win on their pitching and the Dodgers would cop on their hitting. Today, with fewer than 40 days to go, the Dodgers own a comfortable S'/i-game bulge over the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League race and the Yankees have a two-game edge on the Cleveland Indians in the American. And it hasn't been the Dodger hitting nor the Yankee pitching. At present it doesn't appear that either club will have a 20-game winner this year. The Brooks trail the Cardinals in team hitting but they lead , both leagues in team fielding. By completing a double play Sunday in routing the Cardinals, 10-4, to snap St. Louis' eight-game winning streak, they broke a eague record, completing a twin killing in their 19th consecutive ;ame. The Yankees trail Washington and the Chicago White Sox by one point in the American with a team fielding percentage of .979, but are far and away in front in double plays in both leagues with 152. They failed to complete a twin tilling yesterday as they came rom behind to nip the Detroit Tigers, 4-2, and pick up a full game on the Indians, who dropped a 16-inning 9-8 marathon to the Senators in Washington. Two ninth-inning Giant errors _;ave Cincinnati two unearned runs and a 5-4 first game decision. The jiants managed to get a split in the doubleheader, winning the second game, halted at the end of ieven innings by darkness, 6-3. Boston's third-place Red Sox moved up to within four games of he Yankees, sweeping a pair from the St. Louis Browns, 2-1 in 10 nnings and 12-1. Philadelphia's Athletics divided a doubleheader with the White Sox. The A's came back to cop the second game, 5rl after the White Sox had taken an 11-7 opening slugfest. The Philadelphia Phillies and Jhicago Cubs split a twin bill as< did Pittsburgh and the Boston: Braves. The Phils swamped the] Cubs, 14-4, after a 3-0 Chicag triumph. The Braves took a 10 nning 5-3 win after Pittsburgh von the opener, 4-3. New Men's Amateur Champion Is Man With Deliberate Putt SEATTLE Iff)—The nation's newly crowned amateur golf champion, Jack Westland of Everett, Wash., is a man deliberate with a- putt and quick with a retort. Westland, at 47 the oldest man ever to win the championship, is his first appearance with the Bucs in Sunday's twin bill he banged out three hits in seven at bats. White Sox Get 11-4 Win Over Markle Motors The Penitentiary White Sox took the odd game of the season's series with Markle Motors of Kansas City yesterday by a score of 11-4. The curfew bugle put an end to an eighth inning Markle rally that had netted three runs with one away and two still aboard. It was a typical White Sox production—10 runs off 11 hits, seven walks and two hit batsmen. Nine men were left stranded, and as is customary with the Seekers, one of the day's batting heroes proved to be the ninth man in the order. Cavander drove in two runs with solo homer and single in four trips and scored three. Not far behind was Leftfielder Hill with a grand slamround-trip- per to launch a 5-run second inning for the Sox. Centerfielder Sweeden singled twice in three tries to drive in three and made two sparkling catches in the field. Cavender hurled 4-hit ball for seven innings before retiring in favor of Williams who started the eighth. Williams was touched for a single, a walk, a double, a single and another walk with a strikeout n the middle. The curfew bugle then came to his relief. Bob Ives and Ed Turk were the only Markle men to garner more than one safety. George Cdoley drove in a run with Markle's only extra-baser. The Score: Markle Motors 010 000 03—4 7 4 a candidate for Congress in the Second District of Washington. Asked whether he would rather be the national amateur champion or a congressman, Westland replied: "I'm already the champion. Now I'd like to be a congressman." He is a Republican running in a district which the Democrats have ruled for 20 years. Saturday, Westland whipped 23- year-old Al Mengert of Spokane, 3 and 2. Westland turned back the clock and youth in his title thrust. He captured the second hole of the finals and held it until Mengert took a one up lead at the .end of 27 holes. Westland on the 28th, went ahead on the 30th, and wound up the match with a beautiful pitch shot and & 6-foot putt on the 34th. \ White Sox 050 120 3X—11 10 3 Batteries: Fisher dp), Fiatte(4) and Smiley; Cavender (wp), Williams (8) and J.

The Lincoln-Wichita game started off as a pitcher's battle but wound up in a slugfest. The Indians's Jack-Bruner and the A'S Al Romberger engaged in a scoreless duel until the last of the seventh when Lincoln exploded for eight runs on six hits, two walka, two hit batsmen and two errors. Wichita came back with fiv« runs in the top of the eighth on six hits. The A's wrapped- it up with another pair in the last of the eighth.
