THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Wednesday Evening, September 10,1952. Yankees and Dodgers Each Lose Full Game in Hectic Races Die. KryhosUi Tribe Defeats Athletics, 6-1 To Trail by 1 By JOE REICHLER AP Sports Writer The weary New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers, stumbling ..along the rock ^.road to Pennant|,ville, are finding jtheir paths |blocked _by re- uvenge - minded j'f ormer team- I mates. The Yankees I lead over Cleve' land was a skimpy one game esday jo, night's 5-4 loss to the Browns in St Louis and the Indians 6-1 triumph over Bobby Shantz and the Philadelphia Athlejics. Brooklyn's once seemingly safe 10% game bulge over New York dwindled to four as a result o£ Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs, several hours after the Giants had thrashed the Pittsburgh Pirates, 11-6.

Kryhoski, pinch hitting (or winning pitcher Dick Littlefleld, doubled off Ray Scarborough to open me last of the ninth. An infield hit and an intentional pass, sandwiched around an out, loaded the bases. Scarborough's third pitch to Courtney hit the catcher to force home Ray Coleman, running for Kryhoski, with the winning run. It was four-time loser Littlefield's first win of the season.

Fondy smashed a run-scoring triple and Atwell chipped in with a single that drove in one of the tallies in Chicago's big five-run, fourth-inning rally against loser Ray Moore and Joe Landrum. Solly Hemus bases-loaded single and Red Schoendienst's two-run double featured a five-run, ninth- inning uprising that gave the Car- Big Seven Football Squads Work Hard for Opening Games KANSAS CITY (ffl — The first week and a half of conditioning is beginning to pay off around the Big Seven conference football camps. •; Some of the injury lists are growing shorter and the play iff getting sharper.
