THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Friday Evening, September 5,1952. Thrt* Yanks, With Reynolds, Wallop A s, 12-2 to Hold 3-Game Lead AUie Racks Up No. 17 to Near 20-Game Mark • By RALPH RODEN .Associated Presss Sports Writer. Allie Reynolds has achieved two of three feats a pitcher dreams about a no-hit game and a World Series triumph. Today the 33-year- old New York Yankeee righthander stands a good chance of realizing the third—a 20-win season. Reynolds, one of the game's best "money pitchers," turned in his 17th victory of .the season Thursday night as the Bombers whaled the tar out of Bobby Shantz and the Philadelphia Athletics, 12-2. This enabled the Yanks to protect their three-game American League lead over the Cleveland Indians. The Indians, behind Mike Gar- ALLIE REYNOLDS ?ia, had turned back the Detroit Tigers, 2-0, in the afternoon. In other games, Washington defeated Boston, 4-2, and St. Louis trounced Chicago, 8-0. Brooklyn's National League advantage was slicked to seven games as the Dodgers dropped a 6-5, 11-inning decision to Boston while the runner - up New York Giants disposed of Philadelphia, 4-3, also in 11-innings. St Louis turned back Chicago, 1-0, and Cincinnati humiliated Pittsburgh, 7-2. The Yanks held to one hit by the A's Harry Byrd Wednesday night, ripped Shantz and Ed Wright for 13 hits while Reynolds permitted but eight blows. Garcia recorded his ISth victory for Cleveland in blanking Detroit on five hits. Luke Easter's 25th home run of the season in the fourth inning off Bill Wight was all Garcia needed. George Strickland singled home Birdie Tebbetts with an insurance run in the seventh. Former Yankee Duane Pillette encountered easy sailing in beating the White Sox. Vic V/ertz led the Browns to their first victory of the year in Chicago by driving in four runs on his 22nd and 23rd homers. The Dodgers suffered their first defeat in 15 meetings with the Braves in losing the night game at Boston. Brooklyn-born Sid Gordon singled home Johnny Logan from third base with two out in the llth to win the game. Monte Irvin singled with the bases loaded and one out to give the Giants the nod over the Phils. Relief pitcher Al Corwin singled to launch the winning rally. The triumph was Corwin's fourth without a loss. Stu Miller, sensational Cardinal rookie righthander, turned in his second shutout over Chicago in three weeks under the lights at St Louis. The Cards nicked Warren Hacker for the game's only run in the first inning on singles by Red Schoendienst, Stan Musial and Enos Slaughter. Michigan Stale Named No. 1 In Pre-Season Football Poll NEW YORK (SI—Before a muscle | has been flexed in serious competition, Michigan State has been selected as the No. 1 college football team of 1952 in T h e Associated Press annual pre-season poll. The Spartans edged out the pot e n t Maryland eleven i n what amounted to a two-team race for the top spot. The Biggie Mttnn 214 s P° rts f ers and sportscasters participating in the poll 42 knockouts to his credit in 90 pro fights. Turner's loss to Gavilan was the first of his career. He had won 32 in a row with 25 kayos. Dykes record is 78-7-5. The 8 pm (CST) bout will be broadcast and telecast nationally piled up 1,720 points for Coach Biggie Munn's team to 1,696 for Maryland. Georgia Tech was a fairly respectable third place with 1,233 points but was not even close to the first two when it came to first- place votes. The point totals were.based on 10 points for a first place vote, nine for second, eight for third, etc., and Michigan State's top point total was the result of its edge in points awarded for the lesser positions, as the Spartans received 77 first place votes to 79 for the runnerup Maryland team. Georgia Tech received only 15 first-place votes, but was well- supported for a place high in the top 10. The top 10 with their point totals and first place votes in parentheses follow: By The Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE W L Pet.

Turner 9-5 Choice To Defeat Dykes In Bout Tonight O NEW YORK Iff) — Aggressive Gil Turner is a 9 to 5 favorite to get back on the winning trail Friday night when he takes on stiff- punching Bobby Dykes of Miami in a ten-rounder at Madison Square Garden. Stopped in 11 rounds by welterweight champion Kid Gavilan in his last start in July, the 21-year old Turner has beeen handed one of the toughest possible foes for his comeback effort.

Hutchinson in Western Assn. Pennant Hopes By The Associated Press The Hutchinson Elks are still nursing their slim pennant hopes today, thanks to Bob Anderton and Gerry Collis. The Elks entered last night's game with Muskogee 3% games behind the league leading Joplin Miners. A Joplin win, against a Hutchinson loss, would have eliminated the Elks. But the Elks came through with an 8-0 whitewashing of Muskogee behind the combined talents of Anderton and Collis. Anderton allowed Muskogee only seven hits while Collis performed at the plate, driving in four of the Elks runs with two doubles and two singles in four times at bat. Elks' final game and boosted the season's attendance to 72,184, second only to the record of 92,000 in 1950 when the Elks placed second in the league. The Miners kept fr .,% game advantage with a 4-2 . ; umph over Ft. Smith at Joplin. Two homers contributed three of the Miners runs. Jimmy Goff hit a four-bagger in the third and John Blanchard came up with another homer in the seventh with one man aboard. Both Joplin and Hutchinson have four games left, so the Miners need only one more victory to clinch the second-half flag. At Salina, the hometeam broke a three-game losing streak to defeat Topeka, 9-3. The Blue-jays started fast, get- ing five runs in the first frame on three hits, three walks, a hit batsman and an error. Another run was added in the sixth and three more in the eighth. It was Don Edwards sixth win of the season, against eleven losses. Hutchinson- opens a four-game series at Salina Friday night, Joplin is at Topeka and Muskogee is at Ft. Smith. Louisville Moves To 2 Games From 4th Place in AA By The Asssociated Press Louisville nudged to within two games of a fourth place playoff spot in the American Association Thursday night by trimming Columbus 11-1 while pennant-winning Milwaukee blasted fourth -spot Minneapolis 11-7. Second-place Kansas City blasted 13 hits for an 8-3 decision over third-place St. Paul. Kal Segrist, KOM Playoff Contests to Miami, Ponca By The Associated Press Remember the old adage, "He ivho laughs last, laughs best?" Well, the Miami Eagles are probably laughing today at the lola Indians, who were laughing Wednesday.' Miami defeated Pittsburg, 4-0, at Miami Thursday night while Ponca City shaved lola, 3-2, at lola, to drop the league champions from playoff competition. The two winning teams will open up a best ;wo-out-of three game series for the playoff championship Friday night. Miami's Eagles are probably laughing today, because Ponca 3ty upset lola last night in almost the identical fashion that lola turned the trick on Miami Wednesday. In the final game of the season Wednesday' night, Miami was up against lola and was fighting Pon:a City to keep a slim grip on second place in the standings. In the top of the ninth, Miami was ahead 6-0, and seemed assured of its runner-up berth. But :ola roared back with seven runs n the bottom half of the frame to take the game, 7-6. It was a ;ood joke on Miami and it would lave been even better if Ponca City had won its game to vault into second place. But Ponca City lost to Blackwell and Miami finished in the No. 2 spot, almost by default, you might say. Last night, lola was ahead of Ponca City, 2-0, going into the ninth. Then the Dodgers came up with three runs to eliminate the pennant winners. Russ Greenbush, the Dodger catcher, did the damage with a single that drove in two o£ the three runs. At Miami, the Eagles eliminated Pittsburg behind the one-hit pitching of Jim Owens, Owens pitched to 28 men and allowed only one walk. He fanned 11. It was his fourth single-hit contest of the season. J. V. Slkes Oklahoma, KU Top Choice for Big 7 Crown By SKIPPER PATRICK KANSAS CITY UB—It's the University of Kansas' versatile and tremendous backfield corps versus the Oklahoma Sooners overall class anc squad power. That's the way the Big Seven conference cham- i pionship football- race will shape up at Mckoff time Sept. 20. The Colorado Buffaloes, second in the league last fall, again will be strong darkhorse contenders Nebraska, Iowa State, Kansas State and Missouri each figure to have vastly improved outfits, but none appear of championship ability. Kansas was tne last team to so much as share a Big Sevn crown with Oklahoma. The Jayhawks finished as co-champs in 1946 anc again in 1947. Since that time Oklahoma hasn't lost—or tied—a single game to a Big Seven mem her. The Sooners have won thi last four banners in a breeze. Coach Bud Wilkinson's Sooners will have two or more lettermen at every position. Several top stars, among them backs Billy Vessels and Merrill Green, were laid low by injuries in 1951. They are back in full gear for the new campaign. Oklahoma appears solid from end to end. Tackles Roger Nelson and Ed Rowland and center Tom Catlin are expected to make strong races for All-America honors. The Kansas Jayhawks likely will have one one of the better offensive games of the midlands Coach Jules Verne Sik'es says he should have no problem in fielding two major league attacking backfield units. Gilbert Reich, 185 pound senior from Steeltown, Pa., a former Army star, is fitting perfectly into the quarterback slot of Kansas starting team. Jerry Robertson, of Dallas, Tex., will share the quarterbacking doing most of his work when the Jayhawks strike by air. He passed T.C.U. into submission, 27-13, last season. Kansas will offer great running backs in Charlie Hoag, Bob Brandeberry, Bud Lauglin and four or five others. So crowded is the back- :ield in first class material that coach Sikes has moved a veteran quarterback-—Jerry Bogue—up to offensive end. Oliver Spencer, second team All- America offensive tackle last season, will spark the Kansas line. Experience at center and ends are Sikes main worries. Coach Dallas Ward of Colorado, who will be the only single wing operator in the loop this year, is expected to show a powerful running attack and a sturdy defense. Carroll Hardy, a sophomore, could prove top hand at the halfback lot. Nebraska expects to have half- jack Bobby Reynolds in his All- America form of 1950 and if Bobby can regain that status after miss- ng most of last season because of injuries, the Cornhuskers will >e more than just tough, Coach 3ill Glassford expects his team to mprove on its '51 record of one /ictory and one tie in ten games. Coaches Don Faurot of Missouri and Bill Meek of Kansas State, John Vossen, Miami's rightfield- er, homered in the fifth with one man on. The final three-game series wil open with a single game Friday night at Miami. The two team then move to Ponca City for a single game on Saturday and a final contest, if needed, on Sun day. joth using inated squads freshmen d o m- last fall, should homered in the sixth for the Blues to break a 3-3 tie. Vic Power drove in three runs with a pair of doubles and Bill Skowron accounted for two more. Dave Pope, continuing his bic for the batting title, collected four- for - four as Indianapolis downed Charleston 3-1. Friday's games: Charleston at Indianapolis Columbus at Louisville Minneapolis at Milwaukee St. Paul at Kansas City come up with better teams. Faurot i s e n d s his Missourians. against Maryland and California on successive Saturdays before meeting Kansas State in the conference. Then the Tigers take on S.M.U. If they survive the first month of play they should get tough. Bill Rowekamp, ex-Army end, is expeced to add power to Missouri's attack as a fullback. Kansas State had a great defensive back in Veryl Switzer, second team All-America defender as a sophomore last fall. He'll operate on the offense this time. Abe Stuber at Iowa State is building an aerial game around Dick Mann, the league's leading passer as a sophomore in 1951. All of the Big Sevn teams except Oklahoma open their schedules Sept. 20. Kansas will play T. C.U. at Lawrence, Colorado meets San Jose State at Boulder, Iowa State takes on South- Dakota State at Ames, Nebraska plays Souh Da-! <ota University at Lincoln, Kansas State tangles with Bradley at Manhattan and Missouri entertains Maryland at Columbia.
