Staging a whirlwind finish alter dropping the first round, Welch and Garabalcli relied solely on brute strength lo turn the tide of victory. They forgot about scientific wrestling and turned to i-ough and tumble tactics when their opponents insisted on mixing things.

Red Sox Sweep Crucial Series From Yankees to Take Lead / By Ralph Roden Associated Press Sparta Writer The possibility was strong today that. the nation's railroads — and not New York's famed subway system — will transport She participants in the 1949 world series. The right of way between Boston and St. Louis is the expected route of the series personnel instead of the hour ride via the underground from Ebhets Field to the Yankee Stadium. New Yorkers' hopes of a "subway" world series suffered another rude jolt yesterday when the lorrld Boston Red Sox defeated the New York Ya-''-ees, 7-6, to snap their first place tie and move a game in front of the floundering Yanks In the American League race. The dreams of a dime classic were jarred Sunday when the St Louis Cardinals moved a game and a half in front of the Brooklyn Dodgers by downing Chicago while Brooklyn succumbed to Philadelphia. Both the Red Sox and the Cards renew [heir pennant driv on foreign fields today while the Yanks are at home and .the Dodgers idle. The Red Sox, riding a 10 B^ine winning streak, take onr the last n'.ice Senator- in a night gamt> :it Washington while the Yanks entertain the better equlnpcd Philadelphia Alliletics. The Cards meet the sixth place Pirates In a night game at Pittsbursh. Rodffers to Boston ' St. Louis will have its work cut out bcatlnc Ralph K : ncr and com- nany. The Piratn desnile their lowly perch, have split 20 games with the Red Birds. The Dodgers return to action tomorrow when they open a two game set with the fourth place Braves in Boston. A disputed squeeze play, that climaxed a four-run eighth inning rally gave the Red Sox their triumph over 1'ie Yanks before 66,156 pn?d onlookers. Bobby Doerr bunted Johnny Pesky across with the big run. Doerr dropped the ball down the first line. Tommy Henrich's throw had Pesky beat but Umoire r'11 Grieve called Pesky safe. He said later the Red Sox runner slid under Yankee calriicr Ralph Houk. The Yanks immediately swarmed around Grieve like a bunch of hcrnets, claiming that Houk had .. blocked off Pesky. Houk was the :d nost enrascd of the Yanks.
