THE LEAVENWQRTH TIMES, Monday Evening, September 1,1952. Yankees Defeat Senators, 6-1 to Maintain 2-Game Margin Eddie Lopat in Nifty 3-ffitter To Beat Nats By RALPH RODEN AP Sports Writer Eddie Lopat the "junk man" is back in business today. And his myriad stock of pitches may well spell a fourth straight American League pennant for the New York Yankees. Lopat, hindered all season by shoulder miseries, turned in his most impressive performance of the season yesterday in pitching the pace-setting Yanks to a 6-1 ES" ED LOPAT three-hit triumph over the Washington Senators Th e morale- boosting victory enabled the Yanks to protect their two-game lead over the Cleveland Indians, 6-3 conquerors of the Chicago White Sox. The crafty lefthander, a 21-game winner last year, permitted only five balls to be hit to the outfield. Husky Mike Garcia turned the White Sox back on seven hits to hang up his 17th victory for Cleveland. Al Rosen, with three runs batted in on two singles and double, and Larry Doby with a two- run homer, his 28th, led the Cleveland assault against Billy Pierce. Boston's third-place Red Sox and Philadelphia's fourth-place Athletics divided a douHeheader, the Sox winning the opener, 11-1, and the A's the nightcap, 4-0. St. Louis trimmed 'Detroit, 7-4, in the cir-, cuit's other game. GEARED FOR ACTION — Football equipment custodians are among the more. popular men on college campuses these days.

In other games, Pittsburgh downed •St. Louis, 4-2, Philadelphia and Boston split a doubleheader, the 'Braves winning the first game, 10, and the Phils the second, 4-0, while Chicago and Cincinnati also halved a bargain bill, the Cubs taking the first one, 4-2, and the Reds the second, 6-5. The Red Sox lowered the boom on Bobby Shantz, the A's 22-game winner, in the first game at Philadelphia. Shantz was staggered for 10 hits and seven runs in seven innings with Clyde Vollmer's three- run homer the big blow. American Legion Junior World Series Under Way DENVER (IB— Baseball's junior world series — the 26th annual American Legion National Championship Tournament — opens tonight with four teams bidding for the 1952 title.

Witness the slew of former champions who have done it — Bobby Riggs, Don Budge Pancho Gonzales, Jack Kramer and so on down the line. Only Art Larsen, who won it the year before last, gambled and lost. He figured he'd wait around, but he went into such a decline thai he's no longer a drawing card. The fellow who wins would have to cash in pronto. Vic Seixas or Dick Savitt are the most likely Americans to win it if Sedgman doesn't. Seixas is a businessman and has not been approached on the subject. Savitt is just starting out in the world and probably would be receptive to any offers. Who can afford to turn down the ?50,000 or more that would be laid on the line.
