(UP) — Baseball's big "B" teams, the Brook- yn Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox, were playing a brand of Grade 'A" baseball today that made it worth wondering whether the 1946 world series might be a belated encore of the dramatic meeting of the same clubs just 30 years ago. The Dodgers and lied Sox, both moving along at a pennant-winning pace, significantly enjoyed the widest leads today that they have held since the season began in April. And though the collapse or at least relapse of both has been freely predicted there has been nothing in the Cards lor Yankees) to indicate that their second' place rivals arc ready to move In if such blow-ups do occur. Twenty eight years Is a long time, but that is how long the Red Sox have been waiting for that treasured trlangulur piece of goods known as a iXMinant to wave on the flag |H)le at Fenway Park. The Dodgers have been u little more fortunate, gettltig in to the classic In 1920 against the Indians and in 1941 against the Yankees, although they won neither. The Dodgers also were on the short end in thut 1916 meeting'™ 1 ^! ster also chipped in three hlls. Senators Beat Detroit The Senators beat Detroit, 7 to 4, at Washington but much more costly than the defeat to the Tigers was the loss of three players, Eddie Mayo, Hoot Evers, and Frank Ovpr- mlre In two accidents. Mayo Injured his leg and Evers his Jaw when they bumped head-on, chasing a (ly. Ovcrmlre, the starting pitcher, sprained his ankle when he slid into second base. Emll iDiitch) Leonard, trying for hfs sixth straight victory, was batted out in the fourth, ana lefty Bob Kencdy gave up only one hit thereafter to win his flAt game. The Nats made four in .the flftht two on George Myatt's single, to'cilri'bh It. The Indians and A's divided at Philadelphia. Cleveland won, C to 5 despite a four-run rally by the A's in the ninth. Two run homers by Lcs Fleming and Sherman Lollar gave the Indians a margin that barely stood up. Dick Fowler cdgci cx-outficlder Bob Lemon In the second game pitching battle which the A's won, 3 to 2. Elmer Valo's two- run double beat Lemon. The surprising Giants -did Hit idle Dodgers a big favor at St. Louts by beating the Cardinals, R to •! on 'Peace, It* s Wonderful against the Red Sox, dropping four out of flve finmes. The Red Sox cashed in on another "two-for-onc" sale at Boston^ yesterday, winning their fourth double header this year, 6 to 1, and 5 to 2 over the White Sox. This twin win fattened Boston's lead over New York to seven games. The Yankees lost ground by-winning at New York, getting 18' hits to shake oil a batting slump in a 12 to 2 battering of the Browns: Seven runs in the first Inning made it a breeze for rookie Clarence (Cuddles) Marshall to win his, sec- , ,, Marshall's ninth inning er, with a man on base. The Giants, unbeaten at St. Louis, have won four games there tills season. Duster Adams hit u Cardinal liomei as a plnch-hltter. The defeat put St. Louis four full games behind Brooklyn.
