Ted Williams? Vern Stephens? Dom DiMaggio? The selection here is Mel Pamell, the majors' first 20-game winner. The rampaging- Red Sox today were only a game and a half behind the American League-leading New York Yankees. That's the closest they've been to the top all season And they owe it mainly to the stout left arm of the 27-year old t'urnell. + The curly-haired New Orleans unlive lias failed to finish only four of the 26 gHine.s he's stalled. Only once has he lost two in a row. He is the first Boston lett- J^nder to \vin 20 games since Lefty gj|iove notched that many in 1935. "" p.irnell teamed up with Ellis Kiictcr to pitch the Hed Sox to a double triumph over ifie Chic- ! afo White Sox ye.sterday. Mel twirl- j ert a sevcii-hlltcv in the opener as the Bosox bashed three Chicago pit'.'liers for an 11-4 triumph on 17 | lilts. Boston collected 16 safeties in ilie second same to win 10-7. The triumph wns Purnells sixth in a row. and his fifth over the White Sox. Boston's sweep, coupled with Cleveland's 5-3 victory over the Yankees in a night struggle, siiav- etl off a game ;ind a half Iroin the Yanks three game margin. Williams Socks Two Homers Ted Williams and Bobby Doerr were the big Red Soakers. Williams connected for his 31st and 32nd homers in the opener and balled in two runs with three hits in the nightcap. Dom drove in seven mates in the twin bill. In the second game, Lefty Bob Knzava of the White Sox was felled by a line drive off the bat of Al Ziirilta and was rushed to a hos- pilal with a possible rib fracture. Before that lie fanned six straight Boston batsmen. Al Benton. veteran Cleveland righthander, stopped the Yankees with seven hits as the third place Indians climbed to within five games of the top. Lou Boudreau and Dale Mitchell batted In two >»"" apiece to hand Vic Raschi his Iftghth defeat. Both St. Louis and Brooklyn were beaten to leave the National League-leading Cnrds still a game and a half In front of the Dodgers. The New York Giants whipped the Redbirds. 4-2, and the Chicago Cubs defeated the Dodgers by the ssrnc score. Jansen Stops Cards • Larry Jauseu. aided by a three- run uprising against Gerry Staley in the seventh, won his 14th game for the Giants. He allowed five hits including a home run by Marty Marion. Three pitchers stopped the Dodgers, with Bob Muncrief, the middle hurler. winning his fourth game of the season. Joe Hatten was the loser. Detroit moved into fourth place in the American Leagxie. passing the Philadelphia Athletics as they hammered out 18 hits, including three home runs, to wallop Washington, 11-1. Ted Gray scattered six hits for his eighth victory. Stan Spence belted two home runs and drove in' five runs to lead the St. Louts Browns out of the American League cellar with an 11-3 victory over the A's. Joe Ost- rpwski gained credit for his eighth 48" ^Al Dark's single with two out in the ninth drove in the tying and winning nins as the Boston Braves nipped the Cincinnati Reds, 3-2.
