PAGE 8IT BLYTHEVH.I.E (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Schedules Favor Cards and Yanks Both Teams Finish Season With Long Stretches at Home By Jack Hand Associated Prpss Sporis Writer Labor Day finds the schedule favoring the league leading New York Yankees and Si. Louix Cards in their race toward the World Series. New York's lend is only 1 12 tames after yesterday's loss . and Boston's victory, but Cases- Stengel's battered crew plays 21 of Its last, 27 games at home. In marked contrast, the Boston R«d Sox. a terilic home club, will appear at ho^ie in only 11 of their last 22. .Cleveland and Detroit, the only other clubs with any reasonable chance at the flag, set no help from the schedule. The Indians will be on the road In 19 of 24 games and the Tigers away in 13 of 20. Same in National It's the same story In the National, where the Cards play 16 of their remaining 25 contests at Sport-s- mail's Park, nine of thorn at nljht. Brooklyn, now trailing by 2 1'2 games, is at home for it.s next eisht starts, but the Ebbcts Field total Is only 10 of the 24 to go. The schedule edge also is decisive in the remaining meetings of the top contender's. The Red Sox play the Yanks seven more times, but five of them are at New York. The only Brooklyn-St. Louis tilts to bo played are a three-same set at Sportsman's park, Sept. 21-22. That's the overall picture. In today's program of eight doubleheader-s, the Red sox actually have a fine opportunity to close in on the Yanks. While Boston plays lowly Washington two at Frnway, the Yanks are at Shibe Park for n pair with the A's. After an off-day Tuesday the important three-grime series between the Red Sox and Yanks opens at the Stadium Wednesday night. Mickey Hari.s, a Red Sox castnff. did his old mates a good turn yesterday by pitching Washington to a 3-2 edge over the Yanks. Card* Win Pair Young Chuck Stobbs gave the Red Sox a clean sweep of the 11 contests against Philadelphia at Fenway when he bested Dick Fowler, 4-1. Mike Garcia gave Cleveland's hopes a lift with a four-hit shutout job on trie St. Louis Browns, strik- •ins out nine en route to a 5-0 triumph. Hoot Evers' two-run homer In the eighth rescued Detroit,,5-4, from Chicago, giving Hal Newhouser his 3Mh win. Max Lanier and Fred Martin pitched .the Cardinals to a pair of victories 'over'Cincinnati, 6-4 and 11-J. Despfte Brooklyn's «-2 victory over New Tort the Cards widened their lead to 1 112 lengths. The Phillies marched Into third place by taking two slugfests from the oBston Braves, 9-8 and 6-7. Chicago drubbed Pittsburgh, 11-7, In a game called after seven innings because of rain. Coe Beats King 11-10 for National Amateur Crown ROCHESTER, N. Y.. Sept. 5. <iP] —If the 49th U. S. Amateur Golf championship proved nothing else, it was that there are plenty of fine, aharpshooting youngsters coming up. Charlie Coe, the 25-year-old poker-faced perfectionist from Oklahoma City, looks as if he will be a tough man to loss out of his newly •won national title for many years to come. Big oil and cow man Rufus King of Wichita Falls. Tex., in spite of the 11 and 10 shellacking he took from Coe in Saturday's finals at Oak Hill Country Club, still has quite some golfing stature left, himself. Coe, with whiplash drives and uncanny putts, definitely has arrived »s the leader of American golf- dom's young crop. The Oklahoma insurance man's record of twice winning the Trans- Mississippi Amateur and reaching the semi-finals In last year's U. S. Amateur at Memphis. Tenn., .brought him a Walker Cup team selection this year. His 8 and 7 victory over Williajn C. Campbell in Friday's semi-finals coupled with the torrid pace he set against King, only served to emphasize his first rank position.
