THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1951 TttTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Dodgers, Giants Keep Pace with Wins Brooks Send Roe Against Braves ' Today in Crucial Tilt; Giants Idle By ED CORKIGAN Associated Press Sports Writer The desperate Brooklyn Dodgers, who have seen their once-mighty IS'/o-game National League lead dwindle to just OMK game, go into today's big test against Boston's Braves •vffth Preacher Roe (22-2)—their stopper—on the mound. The New York Giants, panting down the Brooks' backs In the mad chaw for the flat; after winning 35 of their last *2 outings, will spend the day watching and waiting. They don't get back into action until Saturday against Boston. Actually, the Brooks are In an advantageous position and the Giants will have to get the breaks to win the bunting. If the Giants win both their two games against the Braves. Charlie Drossen's operatives then will have to win three of their four remaining contests. Should the Giants falter once, Brooklyn will need only two I triumphs. And if the GtanU should lose both, the Dodgers will need only one victory. Dressen is tanlng no chances on his pitching rotation. "It's got to be Roe." he jaid. "for we've gob to keep on winning. I'm not expecting anybody to help us by beating the Giants. We've got to help ourselves. Carl Erskine will start for us tomorrow. I don't know who will go Saturday, but It will be Roe again Sunday if we need the win." Yesterday's 15-5 conquest of the Braves did n lot for the Dodgers. • Vft:n though the Giants came right b W* at night and polished off the Philadelphia Phillies with equal emphasis, 10-1. For one thing It Indicated the Brooks have not cracked up completely after their double defeat by the Braves Tuesday night. Newcombe Rallies For another thing, it showed thit Don Newcombe. who had been try- Ing to win his 19th game for a long time, again could be trusted with top assignments. In the American League, the New York Yankees made no progress in their efforte to sew up the flag. They were completely Ineffectual against the slants of little Bobby Shantz and dropped a 4-1 decision to the Philadelphia A's. So the combination still is two for the Yanks—two triumphs or two defeat* by the Cleveland Indians, who were Idle yesterday. The Yanks have five games left to play and the Indians only two. The Tribe winds up the season's business with single game* it home against the Detroit Tigers Saturday and Sunday. The Yanks play all five of theirs against the Boston Red Sox. Catoy Stengel's men have only one worry about the Sox now. With their 7-3 loss at the hands of the Washington Senators last nlf»)it, the Eeantowners can't possibly win (he pennant. If they win all six nf their remaining games, and the Yanks lose all five of theirs, Steve O'Neill's team will tie. The Giants were on the spot last night. The Dodgers already hart won their R;ime, and Leo Durocher knew his hired hands would have to win to slay in the race. They came through nobly behind Larry Jansen, who racked up his 21st. victory. Jansen's task was made easy when his mates presented him with four runs in the first inning, then three more in the third. Monte Irvln «-as the big boy in the Giants' attack with a three-run homo run in the first, a triple and a double. The Dodgers gave the Braves the same treatment the Giants gave the Phils. They pushed over four runs In the first, then added four more in the fifth and seven In the eighth. Played Acceptable Newcombe gave up only eight hits although two of them were home runs by Bob Addis and Earl Torgerson. Max Surkont. the first of six Brave hurlers. was the loser. The Yanks played acceptably against the A's, who have won 22 of their last 31 games. But these 'lays, you have to do better than be acceptable against Philadelphia Shantz held the New Yorkers to six hits, while his mates loosed a, barrage against the combined offerings of Bob Kuzava and Johnny Sain, one of the three A's home runs was a tremendous belt by Gus Zernlal, 430 feet to fhe left field bleachers. Sid Hudson and Tom Ferrlck combined to hold the Red Sox to six hits while the Senators were battering Ray Scarborough for a half-dozen runs before he retired in the fourth. Scarborough gave up eight of the 11 hits collected off four Sox throwers. In the only other major league game, the St. Louis Brown* hung up a 1-1 conquest over the Detroit Tigers behind Ned Garver, who now Dixie Series Opens Tonight Houston, Birmingham Start Stven Game Set HOUSTON, Tex., Sept.
