THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Monday Evening, September 8,1952. Southpaws Lopat, Roe Hold Key to Major League Pennants ' Preacher' in 3-Hitter; Bums Pop Giants, 4-1 By r JOE AP Sports Writer , The left arms of Eddie Lopat and Preacher Roe hold the key to the major league pennants. Each turned in important victories Sunday as the flag fever continued to mount with each game. Lopat. the 34-year-old . southpaw from Arkansas, pitched New York to a 5-1 victory over the Senators in Washington to stave off Cleveland's bid to pick up appreciable Preacher Ro« ground on the world champions. The Indians, however, did cut the Yankees' first-place American League margin to two games with a 4-0 and 3-1 sweep of a doubleheader from the Browns in Cleveland. Roe, also a 34-year-old veteran and an Arkansan, threw a brilliant three-hitter at New York as Brooklyn came through with a 4-1 triumph that snapped the Giants' five-game winning streak and increased the Dodgers' first - place Na t i o n a 1 League lead to five games. It was just 10 days ago that Pau Richards, manager of the Chicag White Sox, said: "If Lopat can come back an win five games for the Yankees the rest of us can spit on the fir and call in the dogs." At the time Lopat was nursin a sore arm. It was doubtful if h could recover in time to help th Yankees. Since then, Steady Eddi has pitched three games and wo; them all. The Red Sox continued to plaste the left field wall of Boston's Fen way Park, smashing the Philadel pfcia Athletics, 12-5. Ted Gray won his 12th as the tail-end Detroit Tigers turned bad the Chicago White Sox, 4-2. The third-place St. Louis Cardi nals, who continue to cling to their outside chance to overtake both the Do d g e r s and Giants, cam from behind to nip the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-3. The Chicago Cubs defeated the Cincinnati Reds, 6-1, and the Phil adelphia Phillies nipped the Bos ton Braves, 2-1, after the Braves completed Saturday night's sus pended game by winning, 3-1.
