[ola Pitching Victory Margin By The Associated Press lola, the KOM league pennant vinner, was without the services of any of its top three hurlers Wednesday night, and c'onsequent- y had a tough time dividing a loubleheader with second-place .liami. Miami took the first game, 11-3, and lola narrowly grabbed the nightcap, 8-6. Both games were indicative of the heavy reliance the eague leaders have been placing MI their big three throughout the eason. Without Joe Vilk, Bill Vigle or Bus Hoffman on the mound, lola has its difficulties.

The discomfiture of the general managers can be laid at the feet of Ray Scarborough, a 35-year- Olive, N. C., who is currently employed as a pitcher for the American League's pace-setting New York Yankees. Fans in Boston probably are demanding to know why Cronin sold Scarborough to the Yanks. Those in Cleveland must be wondering why Greenberg passed up an opportunity to obtain the tall right- hander. Scarborough gained credit Wednesday for the Yanks' 12-7 victory over St. Louis. The triumph enabled the Yanks to stretch their lead to -two games over the second- place Indians in the pressure- paced race. The Indians dropped back by bowing, 6-5, to Philadelphia. Boston's third-place Red Sox remained 3% games astern as Mel Parnell shut out Detroit, 5-0. In the remaining American League game, the Chicago White Sox defeated the Senators, 4-1, under the lights at Washington. Brooklyn stubbed its toe in its march to (he National League pennant by dropping a 10-5 decision to the Chicago Cubs while the runner-up New York Giants sneaked Pittsburgh, 5-4, to reduce the Dodger advantage to 9% games. In night games, Philadelphia smeared St. Louis, 7-2, and Boston downed Cincinnati, 12-7, in 10 innings. Scarborough was procured by the Yanks from Boston on Aug. 22 for the $10,000 waiver price. All other clubs League had Colorado Springs Gains Full Game in WL Race By The Associated Press Colorado Spring's pace - setting Sky Sox picked up a full game in the glove-tight Western League race Wednesday night by jolting second-place Denver, 6-2. The win put Colorado Springs 2 4 games ahead of the Bears and 3Vi ahead of last year's champion Omaha Cardinals, who lost, 8-0 to Lincoln. Des Moines edged Sioux City, 4-3. The Pueblo-Wichita game at Wellington was rained out. SUBSCRIBE FOR THE TIMES in the American a chance to obtain Scarborough before the Yanks but none nibbled. Wednesday he entered the game in the third inning in relief of Allie Reynolds, who was tagged for five unearned runs in the second inning. Scarborough limited the Browns to three hits in four innings and was awarded the victory when the Yanks came up with four runs in the sixth to take a 10-6 lead. Lefty Curt Simmons breezed to lis llth victory for the Phils in the night game at St. Louis. The Phils rapped Wilmer Vinegar Bend Mizell and Joe Presko for a 7-0 lead in three innings.

Only two teams are still undefeated in the double - elimination Joplin Miners Pulling Away By The Associated Press The Hutchinson Elks have been stalking the Joplin Miners all through the second half of the Western Association standings but its beginning to look like the Elks will fall short of the Miners in the battle for first place. Back at the end of July, when Joplin was in third place, the Elks were a close fourth. As the Miners moved up to second, Hutchinson battled up to the third notch. When the Miners took over the No. 1 position on August 15, the Elks were US Golfers Blast Away In Canadian VANCOUVER, B. C.
