A p*ir of great pitchers, one on the threshold of a brilliant career end the other in the twilight of his reign, divided the cheers of the baseball" world about equally today through two noteworthy performances.. It was hard to say which gave h* followers the greater thrill, young Alley Donald of the Yankees in pitching his 12th straight victory, or Carl Hubbell, the Giants' famous veteran, in coming out of virtual seclusion to beat the St. Louis Cards 6 to 3, in 13 innings. '. Hubbell's feat was the more dramatic,-for when old "Long Pants" In the dumps, not to mention the second division. For three tense hours his creaky left arm had its old wizardy. For the last seven innings he allowed the Cards only two hits, until his teammates Mel Ott and Frank Demarec finally rewarded him with winning homeruns in the 13th inning. It was only Hub's third win of the year, and his first complete game since mid-May. Though he didn't have to strive so hard for victory, Donald's smooth performance in beating the St. Louis Browns, 5 to 1, served to spotlight one of the most amazing Held In Dope Inquiry ·lor-wJieu uiu AJWIA *«.-.« .-a"" --- . . . ,, . , went out there as a sort of forlorn i streaks in diamond history.

Red Wings - the work of Roy ! 'Joiner appears as bright as a Harlem belle's Sunday finery. Roy has allowed only ten hits in the last three games he has pitched Winning two by the shutout route. With a record of 12 victories and seven defeats, he has already surpassed his 1938 record of 9 and 9 and-is ranked behind only those ·*» ··«"· ., _ _ _ _ t_ j.i.j.. A wr4 and city mainstays, Hy Vandenberg Bill Harris, on the Jersey mound staff. , joiner turned in his secona three-hitter in nine days to blank the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-0 yesterday arid add a half game to the Little Giants' lead. He whiffed only ·one rival batsman but granted only two walks. And only two runners got as far as second base. His teammates gave him a two-run working margin in the first inning and nicked Bill Weir for 12 hits, three by Johnny Dickshot. Buffalo Divides Fair Meanwhile Syracuse and Buffalo both threatened Rochester's hold oh second place but failed to make the grade. The Chiefs split a double header with the Red Wings, winning the opener 8-2 behinfl Johnny Gee, then dropping the nfehtcap 3-2. Buffalo's Bisons spUt lith Newark, taking an 8-2 drubbing then coming back to win 3-0 as Clay Smith hurdled three- hit ball; Bill Lillard performed the remarkable stunt of being a hero and | "goat" all on one play as Baltimore nosed out Montreal 8-7 in the evening's other game. Gee marked up his loth victory for Syracuse with a seven-hit job in toe opener. The Chiefs themselves were limited to seven blows but bunched them with John Grod- ready set a wins by a ,, observers are beginning to wonder when it will end. It's entirely possible, they think. ior the kid from Newark to win 20 I straight games in his first season. He has a club behind him that can be counted upon to give him runs and brilliant support. League March Not Affected Hubbell's triumph, while spectacular, had no appreciable effect on the National League race. The Cincinnati Reds increased their lead over the field to 10 full games by licking the Boston Bees under the liehts, 2 to 1. Bucky Walters held the Bees to three hits in pitching his 17th victory of the year, and Harry Craft provided both runs with his homerun- in the seventh. Brooklyn opened its western trip by knocking the Chicago Cubs off twice, 8 to 6 and 3 to 1. They scored · three runs off four Wrigley pitchers in the ninth inning of the first game, and then took the second behind Hugh Casey's six-hit pitching when Manager Durocher hit his first homer of the year with one on. Pittsburgh scored a lucky win over the Phils, 5 to 4, the tying and winning runs scampering across in the last of the tenth when Hugh Mul- caliy uhcdrked a wild pitch with the bases loaded. Red Sox Trim Chicago Twice The Red Sox tightened their grip on second place in the American with a double win over the challenging Chicago White Sox, 3 to 2 and 6 to o. Joe Cronin's homerun supplied Lefty Grove with his winning margin in the first, while four- baggers by Jimmy Foxx and Bobby Doerr were equally decisive in the second, which went 10 innings. Dutch Leonard pitched Washington to a 5 to 3 decision over Detroit. Tne knuckle-bailer kept seven hits Pat J. Panza (above) was arrested aloi)£ with two race track exercise boys in New York as investigators announced they were on the trail of a gambling syndicate which doped or attempted to dope horses at Belmont and Aqueduct tracks.
