Even Shiny New Mascot Doesn't, Aid Giants As Bucs Eke 'Out 4-3 Win (By The Associated Press) If you think all good sports stories end on a happy note, take the case of poor Cecil Haley, who at the tender age of 13 failed in his debut as a member of the New York Giants. i Cecil, a negro mascot, was given a CMant uniform yesterday, allowed to sit' in the dugout for the first time and promised a trip west if he'd bring the Giants some badly-needed luck. The net result of his work? Pirates 4, Giants 3. He didn't do a bit better than two older recruits, Third-baseman Tom Hafey. recalled from Jersey City, and Shortstop Frank Scalzi. recently declared a free agent by Baseball Commissioner Landis and signed for a good fee by the Giants. Hafey did provide all the Giants' runs with a homer but he later hit into a doubl? play with the corners crammed. Although Cecil and Tom and Frank couldn't pull the Giants out of their seven-straight losing streak J.he-6 were some individual stones ING DER MAC 1 GIANT PROSPECT JERSEY BLANKS SYR AOUSE, 6-0 Montreal Defeats Toronto. 10-6, As Orioles Outslug Bears, 9-8 with happy endings elsewhere in the major leagues (B ' Tnc Associated Press) Klein Get* 20th Hit The Baltimore Orioles may not Opposed to Cecil, for example, was I be going anywhere this season in Chuck Klein of Pittsburgh, who | the International League pennant stretched hl- consecutive game hit- [ grind, but that doesn't necessarily ting streak to 20 when he out- Franked all the Mernwells put together by hitting a homer in the ninth with two on to give the Bucs their victory. And if you're still hunting for heroes, there's Buckv Walters of the Cincinnati Reds, Carl Rejnolds of the Chicago Cubs, Edgar Smith of the Chicago White Sox and Ted Williams of the Boston Red Sox Here's what they did Walters kept his record as baseball's "win- nmgest" pitcher intact by winning his 16th victory from the Dodgers He beat them 4-1 with a fine six- hit job after the fire department had mean they don't have a pretty good ball club. It's just not good enough to top a red-hot league. They get beaten often enough, as their seventh-place record shows, but it can't be done without displaying a good brand of double-A baseball. One big thing in favor of the Orioles is that they can--and do-hit Sometimes the other team hits even harder, but as the flock showed last night, it's not safe to take any liberties with the kind of power that's scattered around the Baltimore lineup. They may be down, but they're not out--yet. It just took a couple of lapses on Terry Can't Get Price Set On Youthful Dominic DiMaggio closed the gates on 34,513 Brooklyn [ Newark's part to get the Orioles fans.

Then Billy Holm, pressed into service at second let a roller go through his legs and a moment later Mikey Witek booted one. and Baltimore got its winning run All this didn't ha\e an\ serious - Dempsey Rack In Circulation SAN FRANCISCO M -- Dominic, youngest of the baseball playing Di Maggios, may become the property of the New York Giants anytime now tut picture this seemingly fctrange situation: ' The club, most important link in the National League chain and accustomed to having prospective setters fall over themselves trying to itake a deal, can't get a price set on the youthful San Francisco outfield- ing star. The case is elementary Charles Graham, president of the Pacific Coast League Seals, is withholding the sales price on his best prospect. Heine Groh. Giants scout, has 6"een on ths ground for a week and plans to stay that much longer. He must have spots before his eyes by this time, he's been focusing them on Dominic so frequently. Groh was the first big league scout to recommend Di Maggios purchase last year. On instructions f-cm his club, he's back for another ·,'looksee." Apparently he's already seen enough to convince himself he was right a ysar ago Without beating about the bush he asked Graham to put a price on the be-spectaclec 1 brother of Yankee Joe Di Maggio. p " As soon as the Seals president decides on a figure, which undoubtedly will call for delivery of players in addition to cash, the deal may be put through. At least six other National and American League clubs are interested in the fieet-footed little Italian lad who's hitting around the .360- mark now. President Graham says Dominic will be in the big leagues, definitely, next year. He doesn't care which club gets tim. Money talks. Privately, however, he thinks Dominic would be a gilt edged investment for the Gi?nts "Dominic would be a riot in center fisld at the Polo Grounds." he predicted. "It is a huge field, made to order for a player who can cover as much territory as Di Maggio. Aside irom that he would be a crosstown rival of his brother, Joe. The set-up is ideal'' I itecl the Yankees to five hits and beat them, 4-1 It was Ed's second straight over the champioa^ and ended their eight-game uctory streak. Williams' stickwork m the Boston- St Louis marathon earned a round of applause for he singled home Jimmy Foxx in the ninth to tie the score and connected again in the eleventh to bring m Bobby Doerr i with the run that beat the Browns, i 6-5. Reynolds provided all the Cubs" runs in a 3-1 victory over the Bees when he homered in the seventh and gave Charley Root his fourth victory of the year. Root scattered 13 Boston hits. Morton Cooper of the St. Louis Cardinals also did pretty well after effect upon sixth-place the standing, for the Montreal Royals hit even harder, than the Orioles to whip Toronto. 10-6, while Jersey City's league leaders blanked Syracuse, 6-0, on the two-hit pitching of Bill Harris. Rochester and Buffalo were idle. Montreal pounded out 17 hits, four by Chris Hartje. and bunched them for a six-run third inning that decided the game. With this aid Bobby Porter managed to go i seeing his mates take a 16-2 pasting the route although he yielded 13 i from the Phillies with a 22-hit outburst. He- went in and pitched six- hit ball to give St. Louis the second blows. Harris gave the most, remarkable .-- performance of several notable game. 7-0. Then Henry Pippen of j ones he has turned in this season the Philadelphia Athletics did some, He faced just 30 men in nine inn- nice pitching in the clutches and) ings, whiffing three and passing Dario Lodigiani knocked in three none at all.

He said he was "lucky' and perhaps he was right, but an impregnable defense had a lot to do with his victories.

(d»)--Charles S Howard's Kayak II led a procession of six challengers poslward today in the second running of the $50,000 added Hollywood Gold Cup handicap. Upwards of 35.000 turf fans were expected to witness the leature race ot Hollywood Park's meeting, and the Argentine Flash, winner of the $50,000 Santa Anita handicap, was installed as the heavy betting 1 choice, with Townsend B. Martin's stretch- running Cravat next in line. Post time for the mile and one quarter event won in 1938 by How- aid's Seabiscuit, was 5:20 P. M. (PST). Here's the field, with post positions, weights and jockeys: 1. Olimpo, 107 pounds, Lester Balaski; 2, Whichcee, 114, Al Siler; 3. Can't Wait, 109, Willie Sauriders; 4 Kayak II, 125, Georgie Woolf; 5, Cravat, 126, Jack Westrope; 6. Go- sum, 109. Wallace Leishman,; 7 Specify, 119, Charlie Corbelt. Off past performances, it was Kayak II against the field--everyone of which, with the exception of Myron Selznick's Can't Wait, the Letin has defeated Whichee, Specify. Cravat, and Go- sum fell back before Kayak's flying strides in the Santa Anita handicap. On July 4 the Argentine lelt Gosum and Olimpo behind in the $15 000 American handicap. Kayak II and Can't Wait had not met until today. In the big Santa Anita Specify and Whichcee wilted under then- own spsedy pace and Kayak II went on to win. Cravat and Gcsum were ne-ver contenders in the mile and one o.uarter race. Kayak carried but 110 pounds that cay. however, while Cravat packed 120, and since then the Martin ace has improved considerably But so has Kayak II, and the stable, after watching him carry 120 pounds and run off with the American handicap, was confident he would capture today's purse. DiMaggio Paces League, Average Down 26 Pts. NEW YORK (V) -- Most of the activity among baseball's major league batting leaders took place this week in the American League, with a trio who were on the outside looking in last week now numbered among those present Bill Dickey of the New York Yankees, Myril Hoag of the St. Louis Browns and Eric McNair of the Chicago White Sox are the old familiar faces back in the junior loop's big 10. while missing are Charlie Gehringer of Detroit. Roger Cramer of Boston and Buddy Lewis of Washington. Of course Joe DiMaggio is still the loop's pace-setter, although his average slipped from a gaudy .432 to .406. In the National League. Johnny Mize of the Cardinals with .337 moved. up to third from fifth and traded places with Buddy Hassett who slipped from .343 to .335 this week. Morns ArnoTich's .375 still gives him top ranking. Harry Danning's injury caused him to lose out and Ducky Medwick's .318 was good enough to give him Harry's place. Johnstown Prohibitive Favorite to Romp Home In Arlington Meeting. CHICAGO (/I') -- Johnstown, reigning king oi the American turf, goes to the post in the $50,000 Arlington classic today, seeking his sixth major triumph of the year. Based on his pcrlormances in the Kentucky Derby, the Belmont, the Withers, the Dwyer. and the Woods Memorial stakes, the long striding son of Jamestown, owned by Wilham Woodward oi New York, probably will be the shortest priced favorite m the history of the race. The only defeat he suffered in a major event this season was when he chased Challedon horna, in the muddy Preakness. Eight other three-year old rivals \\ere named for today's race at a n-ile and a quarter, but it ii believed that no more than five will start. ONE NEW YORKER IN N. E. TOURNEY Eddie Foy Finds Going Rough In Shennecosset Golf Tournament EASTERN POINT, Conn. (/P) -The lone New Yorker in a field of .New England home-folks, 21-year- old Eddie Foy i? finding the competition extremely tough in the Shennecosset mens* invitation golf tournament. Foy, who played football for Holy Cross and therefore shouldn't feel entirely lost among the Connecticut and Rhode Island players in the quarter-final round, accomplished two big feats yesterday. He eliminated the 1938 winner, Bob Soccoli of New Britain. Conn., in a 19-hole second round match, and he escaped the fate that befell all other invaders from outside New England. Today he has to take on another college player of his own age, Sammy Nield. Jr., of Providence, R. I. and Notre Dame While Foy was routing Andy Fine of Scranton, Pa , 5 and 4, then beating Soccoli arith a par four on the 19th. Nield was two under par for 29 holes as he beat Edward Clark of Ridgewood. N. J.. 5 and 4, after winning 4 and 3 from Walter O'Rourke of Brooklyn. In addition to their victims, the invading forces lost Morton McCarthy, the pre-tournament favorite from Norfolk. Va.. in the first round when he was beaten 3 and 1 by Arthur K. Atkinson of Greenwich. Conn., and L. B. Peterson of Steubenville. O., in the same round, then Ralph Bogart of Washington, D. C., in the second. Tony Kosinski of Bridgeport. Conn . became the favorite to reach the final against the winner of today's Foy - Nield match by two brilliant victories in the lower half of the draw. He was two under par for 30 holds of his 4 and 3 triumphs over Richard Berry of Hartford and Bogart. Kosinski meets F. G. Ahern of Watch Hill R. I., today and if he comes through he'll likely face Atkinson in the semi-final. Challedon, Sun Lover, Heather Broom, Technician and Unerring;, the latter two running as an entry for Herbert Woolf of Kansas City, arc expected to complete the field. Total Eclipse, Yale O'Nlne and Vis- county, likely will be scratched. Indications were for a dry, fast track, which would be to Johnstown's liking. He will be ridden by Jockey Jimmy Stout, who was astride him in all his important victories. If victorious. Johnstown may wipe out the classic track record ol 2:01 2-5 set by Omaha in 1935. With a field of six starting, the gross value of the race will be $50,100 with $37,475 going to the winning owner. A crowd of between 35,000 and 40,000 was expected to witness the classic. Owner Woodward will be seeking' his fourth classic victory. In previous years he sent out Gallant Fox, Omaha and Granville to capture the rich prize. Johnstown has gone to the post, eight times this year, winning seven I races, and bagging $133895 m\ purses. Challedon probably will go to 1 post second choice, with Une* and Technician sharing third £«. honors with Sun Lover. The lata is the entry of Mel Emerich of Chicago. Regardless of track conditions,! Challedon. owned by William L. Brann, Maryland sportsman, is regarded as the danger in the race. He proved his ability by running second ] to Johnstown in the Kentucky Derby and by overwhelming him in the | Preakness.

BROOKLINE, Mass, (ff) -- If the veteran Jank Crawford of Australia has his say, which seems more likely than not, the Longwood Bowl Tennis Tournament will wind up in an all-foreign final, the first in the history of that 47-year-old grass classic.
