Sox s t a f f , Dave looked far from Impressive. Skeptics who early Inst season termed him a wartime pitcher and were forced to eat thnlr words, begin to pop up again. "He needs] lots of runs to win," they observed. FcrHss again yesterday proved that this was a wrong observa-' tion. Boston made only eight hits yesterday, three of which he contributed himself, but Dave gave up only seven and whipped the Chicago White Sox 0-2 to givn tho American League champions a split in their doublcheadcr. Tho White Sox outscrambled the Red Sox 0-5 in tho nightcap. Ho drove in three runs with a triple and a single and scored once to account for four o|. Boston's six runs. A freak play helped give the White Sox the second game win. With the bases loaded in the f i f t h inning, Murrell Jones hit to shortstop Johnny Pesky who flipped to second baseman Don Qutter- idge forcing Dave Phtlley, Philley slid in hard and put a football block on Gutteridge, grounding the little Infleldor as Thurman Tucker and Jack Wallaesa hurried home. Johnny Neun's Cincinnati Reds knocked the New York Giants out of sole possession of the National League leadership when they handed previously unbeaten Clint Hartung his first setback of the season and crushed the Giants 0-3. The defeat dropped the Polo Ground crew into a tie for first place with the Idle Chicago Cuba. Lefty Howie Pollot pitched and batted the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 ^victory over the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field. Pollet cracked a single in the 10th inning to score Enots Slaughter from second with the tie-breaking run. Pittsburgh throttled a ninth inning rally by Boston and nosed out the Braves 4-3 in Boston. The Philadelphia Athletic de- feqted the St. Louis Browns 6-3, The A's rocked Clif-f Fannin for three runs in the second and scored what proved to be tho winning run In the fifth when rookie first sacker Ferris Fain homered.
