Instead of wearing out his two Milwaukee aces in the spring, he has them ready for the sccond r half pennant drive. Spahn, 39, ran his won-lost record to 10-6 Wednesday night by pitching his 49th shutout at the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0. The left- hander has pitched only 14Z innings this year and made 17 starts as compared to 167 innings and 21 starts at this stage last season.

Dressen's Braves clipped Pittsburgh's National League lead to a half game when Los Angeles knocked off the Pirates 7-5 in U innings.

Hobbie finished up with! a two-hitter for a 4-0 verdict in the second game behind Don Newcombe, who had lost five straight.

Spahn scattered seven hits and didn't allow a runner to advance past second base, while Jpe Adcock and Hank Aaron did the slugging with a pair of taps-measure jobs against Ernie Broglto. Ad- cock hit a 450-foot drive into the Weachers for his 15th homer, ani Aaron slammed No. 26 into thi same sector, extending his bat ling streak to 15 straight games Dodgers Scuttle Pirates The Dodgers, who have won I. of their last 23, made it two in a row over the Pirates when Wall, Moon opened the llth with a sin gle off loser Elroy Face, 5-5, an moved to second on Gil Hodges sacrifice before Davis put his sec ond major league homer into thi Coliseum seats.

Pale Hose Down Boston 7-1; Indians Win From Bombers, 8-6 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Chicago White Sox, written off for dead after losing four straight at home to tha New York Yankees in mid-June, are very much alive today, breathing on the necks of those selfsame Yankees. Al Lopez, the While Sox manager, had the foresight to clip some of the obituary notices typed by Yankee newsmen, quoting various members of the New York club on the demise of the 1959 league ch a m ps. Lopez pinned them to the bulletin board in the White Sox clubhouse. Apparently the Sox got the message. It is Lopez' turn to smile now with his White Sox only one game behind the Yanks as they move into Yankee Stadium Friday to open a vital four-game series. White Sox Win 5th In Row Chicago won its fifth straight ·nd its 17th in the last 24 games Wednesday night with the aid of ton lineup, drove in five runs with home runs by Roy Sievers and A! Smith. Although the combined pitching of Russ Kemmerer and Frank Baumann yielded 13 Bosjon hits, Chicago won 7-1. At the same time, the Yanks were having pitching trouble in Cleveland, where the Indians salvaged the finale of their three^ game series with an 8-6 decision despite Roger Maris' 3Ut home run and Mickey Mantle's 23rd. homer for the Indians, and Harvey Kuenn homered and slammed a two-run double. Another late Yankee threat died ninth, Johnny Temple made a leaping catch of Hector Lopez' line drive ending the game. It was Gary Bell's victory and a seventh defeat for Art Ditmar. Washington moved into fifth place, all even at the .500 mark with a 41-41 record by thumping Detroit g-. Faye Throneberry, an occasional starter in the Washing- a double with the bases loaded and two singles. Kansas City's Ray Herbert skirted disaster in the ninth inning while pitching the A's to a 4-3 victory over Baltimore. Maw Throneberry hit a lowering 400- foot homer, and Andy Carey came through with a triple and a double in defeating Milt Pappas. With only one day game on the Thursday schedule in the American-- Washington at Detroit--attention turned to the big weekend series at the stadium between the when, with two men on in the Yanks and White So.x. They meet Friday night, Saturday afternoon, and play a double-header Sunday. Lining up his pitching for the Yankee series, Lopez started fCemmcrer against Boston, a club :hat Chicago has now beaten 11 imes'in 15 starts, including nine straight at Comiskey Park. Kemmerer didn't make it all the way, Hit Baumann finished up with c ive shutout innings although nicked for seven hits. ...

Ivy said: "St. Louis fans are going to like Stacy. He knows only one thing and that's hustle. I wish we were in position to use him on offense but he's such valuable man on defense that we can't spare him back there. Hou ever, let's wait and see what happens in training camp." Since ·ast season ended, Billy has come up with an additional rooter. He and his wife, the former Patsy Fitzgerald of Greenville, are the parents of Stephanie Ann, 9 pound, 9 ounce young lady born (an. 5 in Greenville.
