(UP)— Thc ingora-headcd hurler, now a little ;iay. kept lobbing the ball Into thc batters and all over Yankee Stadium ans were wondering out loud why hey couldn't BO down there themselves and connect with a few of hose seemingly soft pitches. Thc fans were no more baffled than the White Sox batters, who took their batting lieks confidently— but futllcly. And at the finish, 42-year-old Charley Ruffing, using his heart and his bend to compensate for a curve and fast ball that had seen better days, hud given the Yankees four-hit, 4 to 0 victory. It was his fourth straight ulumnh. his second shutout in a row, and it brought his .string of consecutive scoreless innings to 22. In 41 1-3 Innings he hns given up Just '2'i hits and seven runs. Jubilantly celebrating his 39th birthday behind thc plate as catcher-manager was angular Bill Dickey. Together, he and Ruffing formed major league baseball's oldest pitcher-catcher combination, ami at the finish both were "dog-tired" but happy. The Yankees, winning their fourth straight and their eighth game in nine starts, made It easy for nig Red to win his 269th major lciigii c game by scoring three runs In the first inning. A single by George Stlrnwelss. three walks and Dickey's single save Ruffing all the margin be required. John Rig- ncy. White Sox starter, was plagued by a. muscle injury in his arm nd gave up in the third Inning, New York gained no ground on he rampant Red Sox, however. The eaguc leaders maintained their x-anrt-a-tmlf game edge by beat- ng the Browns, 5 to 4 at Boston or their seventh win In a row and heir 14th victory at home against western teams without a defeat. 3rownie pitcher Jack Kramer be- ;ame so incensed <at the situation hat he pushed umpire Hal Weafer bout the infield In protest against decision at first base in thc ointh and threw ^a baseball over he grandstand when he was ejected from the game. Homers by Hobby Doerr and Ted Williams gave Boston enough edge to survive. a linth inning' Brown rally of two runs on Walt Judnlch's homer.

Dwight D. Eisenhower was one of the fans on hand. The Nats batted out starter Bob Lemon in he first .with a three run rally on .wo hits and three walks. Rank Sccory of the Cubs provided the day's most dramatic moment in the National when he hit homer with the bases loaded in the I2th to provide .n 10 to B victory over the Giants at Chicago. New York, trailing 6 to 0, tied the score with three run rallies In the eighth and ninth. Babe Young started the ninth Inning uprising with a homer. The Dodgers made nine runs in thc fifth to beat thc Pirates, 13 to. 8 at Pittsburgh. Angle Galan nnd Ferroll Anderson each made three hits in the 17-hit attack off four Buc pitchers.
