(UP)—The nay to stop the Yankees is to make them do their stuff against good pitching. All this talk about splitting the American League season after the all-star game July 11 because the Yanks are running away - with the pennant Is poppycock. * Lei the other clubs follow Del Baker's belated attempt to stop the .Yanks by tossing llielr best pitchers against them nt every turn. Baker finally pulled Hie wraps off Tommy Bridges yesterday and let him face the Yanks for the flist time this season. The slim Detroit right- hander pitched the Yanks into a whisper, allowing only four hits and blanking them for the first time this season. Bridges had the Yanks eating out of his hand, and was In trouble only once ns the Tigeis beat Monte Pearson, 3-0. In the ninth a single by Henrfch, a walk and Selklik's single loaded the bases. Bridges fanned Joe Cordon for slrikcoui No. 10 and forced Babe Dahlgien to pop out to end the game. Hank Grecnberg hit homer No 12, and Pinky Hlggim clouted another one to touch off the Tigers' winning rally in the fourth. It was Bridges' seventh victory and pear- son's first defeat. Today Baker' comes back with Schoolboy Rowe, an old Yankee beater who'll try to recapture some of the magic he used to weave around the Bronx Bombeis before Ills arm came up with the misery. That's the stuff, Del Keep giving 'eni the best you've got, Biidges ana Howe and Newsom. II the i other clubs would stop squawking about how the Yanks aic" running away with the liag .and go put there and give 'em the best they've got every day, thru we'd see a lillle Jun.

The Chicago White Sox jno\ed to within a Eame nnd n li'nlf of second place by knocking off the AlhlcllM, 12-1, behind Jack Knoll's three-nit pitching. It was the first tltrie llifs season he had gone the route. Ollle Bejmn hit his Ihhd homer in as many clays for the White Box, who clouted 15 hits off Joyce and Parmelce. Earl Averlll, whom the Indians tiled to waive oul of the American League to sell lo 'Brooklyn, led Cleveland lo a 7-5 victory over the Unl Sox. He illigged out n homer nnd two doubles nnd drove In tluee rims. Boston rapped Johnny Allen for 13 hits but couldn't overcome a Y-l handicap. , Ofnclnniui • Continued lo draw away from the field in the National League by gouging the Ghints, 8-2, ind lengthening lliolr lend to 4" games.

The other three .Western clubs lost—the Bees slapped down the Cards. 10-4; the Dodgers tripped Ihe Pirates, B-2; and the Phillies beat the; Cute, 8-7. Mnx West's two homers featured'the Bees' triumph. Ernie Key's double with the bases packed was the big Brooklyn punch. Joe Marty and Klrby Hlgbe, ex- Cubs, helped ihe phlls beat their former males. Marty hit u homer with one on and Higbe was credited with the victory although lie had to have relief. Merrill May hnd a perfect day, "4 for 4." Yesterday's hero—Tommy Bridges, Deirail's slim curve bailer, who mvstinecl the Yanks and handed them their first shutout this season, 3-0. . ~ ' Max GetsjBylTipatliy From^ Little Woman COURIER NEWS Today's Games Northeast Arkansas League Pnragmtld at Jonesboro.

' It IVBS one of Hie best matches seen here In recent months and at- racted a good sized crowd of mat fans. There was little or no Illegal oughness by cither wrestler, both slicking to legitimate holds and breaking promptly at the com- nands oi Referee Mike Mcroney. Long employed his very effective lying hwul scissors to score the first fall over Taylor In ten min- iles. Taylor used a series of flying ackles and body pin to lake the econu In nine and Long termlnat- « the match by taking the thin) n 11 minutes with kangaroo kicks .ml body pin. In the curtain raiser Oklahoma' 'oe Welch proved his superiority by' - ..t,..*,u*,,t| , AJtJJJ JUIISel], taking two out of three falls in n match that provided everything in the way of action.
