Perpetrator of (he Wow to Card* hopes »• B s Tommy Brown, who chose pitcher Al Brazle as the victim of his ninth homer of the season. It was, ironically, his lone hit of the evening. The Phils as a team could solve Brazle for only five hits, but two of them were enough to slice the Cardinals' Ihlrd place advantage to two eames over the idle Brave 1 *, off the right field fence in Die first Rookies Mel Clark supplied the other telling blow, a double in the fourth after Willie Jones walked and moved to second on an Infield- out. The Cards scored their nm early. with Harry iThe Hat) Walker push- Ing a single over the mound with the bases filled.

I The defensive drills were run at u]l fipced. which was n bit unusual sr Monday. Monday afternoon's rills generally are light with only minimum of hard contact work.

Miam Injury, Douglas said it ts question- Bill Canny and Bad Boy Brown tried for their third time lo get revenge on Lee Fields and Rex Mob- Icy In the tag match feature of the American Legion's wrestling mfitche.5 at Memorial Auditorium last night but billed. Canny and Brmvn, after gaining a blp edge by taking bnth preliminary bouts and the first fall of the main event, lost the last two rounds ot the feature bout and the decision. Ago in as in the other two, last night's bout was a rough and umble one; "It was highlighted by free for all in (he third round hat nearly brought the rafters I own ag the spectators cheered, Canny and Brown won the first all in 12 minutes with Canny nking Fields on body slfirns in 10 minutes and Brown getting by Mob- ey In two minutes, But Fields and itobley milted to take the second round In 15 minutes. Fields beat anny with drop kicks and Mobley eliminated Brown with cart-wheels. The third fall went to Fields and MobJey also with Fields downing Brown in 10 minutes with flying tackles and a body pin and Mobley beating Canny in five minute* with cartwheels. Brown beat Fields with a crab hold In six minutes In the first preliminary bout and Canny defeated Mobley in 10 minutes wUh a body pin. Neither manager h;us announced his pitching nomination for tomorrow night. However, it wouldn't be bad guess that Baron boss Red Marlon will lead off with either efty Mickey Haefner (10-7) or Bo>o Newsom U6-U i. the old tig league righthander. Both have been particularly annoying to the Tavel- ers this year. Little Rock skipper Gene De- Sautels Is expected to count on right-hander Mllo Johnson U3-10) or southpaw Duch McCall (16-10). Birmingham and Memphis were the only teams which got the better of the Travelers in the season pennant chase, Each beat the Rocks 12 time.-: in 22 tries. Statistically, there's little t o choose between the playoff finalist. Birmingham ranked second in the league in batting with a .284 mark; Little Rock wns fourth with 279. in fielding, the Travelers were j ops with a .970 average; the Barons second with .968. It may be a case of out of the i frying pan into the fire for the beleaguered tribe, which opens a two-game -series with the Red Sox today in Boston. The Red Sox, winners of .six of their last .seven starts and fresh from a 12-5 romp over the Chicago White Sox, are only a game and a half behind Cleveland in this tense three-team American League race. Losing to NEW York is an old Cleveland custom. In the last 20 i cars the Indians have won only otic season serie.s from the Yankees. thnt probably accounts for only one Cleveland championship during tiiat time. Oddly enough, the Indians' edge over the Yankees did not come in 1948, Cleveland's pennant winning (AP)—Scrappy Little Flock and hard-hitting Birmingham, the one-two teams ]y ear< It came j n ig^5_ a 12 to nine their heated battle in the finals of the Southern Association Shaugh- icri^e—when the Indians wound up [fifth. But they had the satisfaction of seeing the Yankees place fourth, the lowest New York finish since 1925. Squeeze Works It was Phil Rlzzmo, the shortest 01 the Yanks, who beat the Indians yesterday with the shortest of hits. The winning blow—a deft squeeze bunt that didn't even reach the pitcher's mound—brought in Joe DiMaggio with the payoff run. It came in the last of the ninth after Cleveland Manager Al Lopez lu. ! ordered pitcher Bob Lemon to \valk Bobby Brown on purpose with runners on first and third and om out, The victory went to Eddie Lopat who squelched the Indians with ----------- • • • — ------ Arkansas Sportettes — Doug Crusading to Make Porkers Real Part of UA By CARL BELL LITTLE ROCK, Sept, 18. (AP)— Otis Douglas Is continuing his crusade to make the Razorback football team "a real part" of the University of Arkansas. The head coach, who started It last year by firing two star linemen for not attending classes, now ha* his grid men living in a boys' dormitory right along with other students, In other years, the athletes have resided to themselves In another hall, . . . And he's encouraging them to Join fraternities and to assume leadership in other activities. able whether the hard-hitting Junior will play Saturday. Elsewhere In the conference*. Bench- Burial will be in Miami's Graccland Cemetery, Ford Frick, pro.sidcnt of the Na Last nlgnt's game was the only one of the six between Little Rock and Memphis to be decided by more than one run. On;, hit, 11. to 0, the Travelers capitalized on four Chicks errors to score five unearned runs and hang the second playoff defeat on lefty Fran Biscan, who beat them every time he tried during the regular season. The biggest Little Rock blow was Ralph Atkins' two-run triple off the ri^ht flel dfence in the first inning, The RatorbacKa should b« able to xivr that extra effort In the fourth quarter this fall. They're in their best general physical condition since 1946. when the Porks ivrre hard as nails und wore down enough opponents to share the Southwest Conference championship. . . . This year's strenuous conditioning work Is shnwinj; up In thnt, while there are numerous minor aliments on th« squad, there are no n^rlous injuries despit* plenty of rough scrimmage. Says Douglas: "Statistically, we weren't B bad ball club l;usi year—when we won two and lost eight. This year we want more touchdowns and less statistics." Replacing graduated Louie Schaiifcle is a major problem In the Razorhack camp. Lewi* Car- penter, also the offensive fullback. will take over the big Little Rock boy'« specialty — defensive line- harking. Anrt sophomore Lamar McHan will do the punting, Louie's only chore when Arkansas had Ihe ball. three hits to reach the 20-win mar! for the first time in his career. Th only Cleveland tally came in th xlh and ll took an error to pave way for the Indians' unearned m, An infield out followed by Bob- Avila's single brought the run crow. The Yankees, who made seven its off loser Lemon, had -snapped a coreless deadlock in the fifth when Jzzuto singled in Brown, who had nod a one-bounce ground rule ouble into the right field stands. The stage for the winning marker as set by DiMaggio. who scratched single off Al Rnscn's glove with ne out. Gene Woodling followed vith a bouncer past first bnse- nan Luke Easter that sent DE- Magglo streaking into third. Then ame the strategy that backfired. A 13-hit Red Sox attack, featured by the clubbing of Ted Williams and Clyde Vollmcr, gave Ray Scar- wrough his 12th victory over the White Sox. Williams had a perfect day at bat with two singles, a double and his 30th homer iti four offici^^ Imcs at bat. Vollmer banged irM 'Ive runs with two singles and his 22nd homer. Campanella Beaned The Brooklyn Dodgers not only nad their National League cut to four games over New York's Giants as they bowed to the Cubs, 5-3, In Chicago, but lost the services of Roy Campanella for at least two days. ' Brooklyn's star catcher was laid low by a pitched ball which struck him on the left ear and sent him to the hospital. The pitch, delivered bj Turk Lown In the second inning, knocked Campanella unconscious, X-rays taken later showed no fracture, but Roy was held overnight for observation . Speedy Johnny Cole, Arkansas'' great little punt returner in ISriO, won't be running back the kicks this season. The junior safety man underwent a knee operation last winter and Douglas feels he's too valuable .strictly on defense to risk re- Injuring it by carrying the ball. . . . Dean Pryor, who shared the double safety setup with Cole last year, will handle runbacks, And tiny but shifty Tommy Britt is due' to replace Cole on punting downs. All Ex-Service Men Are Invited 5TH.
