(UP)—The "honeymoon" wns over today for the Philadelphia Phillies. It was nice while it lasted but it, ended as soon as they tangled with the Dodgers at Brooklyn last nlfiht. Things had been wonderful since the Phils last had encountered the Dodgers. They bad won 20 and lost only nine and they had risen to :i position of respectability in the National League, going into n middle class fifth place tenancy after vacating their basement home. But the Dodgers, who have a special magic touch whenever Ihc Phils arc around, bent them for the ninth straight time this season, 11 to C, smiling on* with n six-run first Inning. The 11 run total was the largest amassed against the Phils since the Dodgers beat Uran 13 lo 4 way back on May 12. Tlie Dodgers, who now have 28 wins and three defeats for the past two seasons the Phils, probably would not be In flist place If It were not for their mastery over them and the Boston Uravcs, whom they have beaten nine times In 11 starts. Last night's 15-hit victory was Brooklyn's sixth straight, four of the previous wins having been racked up against Ihc Braves, the other against the Herts. The Cardinals dropped six and a half games behind when cx-tcain- mntc Harry Gumbcrt of the Reel:; beat them. 5 to 4, in l3-lnnliig« at St. Louis for hLs second relief victory In n.s many days. The shoe was on the other foot for Cardinal .6001 'Al Brn$c, who lost his second .583 game in two days. He ailed the bases .583 .571 .555 .500 .500 .500 .500 .500 .500 in Al Ubkc's single, a force-out, Bert ITass' two base hit and an intentional pass to Bob Usher, and Ray Lamnnno's long (ly scored the winning run. Harry Walker 'of tlv; Cants and Al Llbke of Cincinnati hit homers.
