(UP)—Do- ill Philadelphia on (wo hits, scoring pending on the viewpoint, either Hobby Feller of the Indians or Spud Chandler of the Yankees, deserved credit loday for being very smart. Feller e"t the glory when lie pitched in the All-Star game at Boston and was credited with winning it for the American League. Chandler begged oil In lira'; game although he had been named as one of the three American League moundsmen .slated to work and received a little criticism for his action. But for the giory ne missed, he gained compensation that counter! last night by beating a weary- looking Feller, 9 to 1, at New York, handing--Bullet Bob his first defeat tliis year against the Yankees. He had beaten them four times, once on n no-hitter, but this time he lacked his usual sharpness and was whacked for 1J hits, Including two homers by Aaron Hob- in thc inson, before he was relieved in. " lc Bl - •••• the fifth. an 8 lo 2 triumph in which he Chandler, well rested and caper to beat the most highly-rated pitcher in baseball, gave up only five hits and missed a shutout only because the Indians put together a walk, a single and an infield out for a run in tnc fourth. Robinson, only Yankee to get two home runs in one game at Yankee Stadium this year, drove in six runs with the blows. One man was on base when he hit the first one in the fourth nnd the sacks were loaded when he came back for the next one in the fifth. It was Chandler's fifth straight victory over Cleveland and his 13th of the season. Thc Red Sox stayed seven and half games in front by beating the Tigers at Boston for the seventh straight time, putting over a run in the 10th for a 3 to 2 victory when Bobby Docrr and Glen Russell hit doubles. Tex Uughson, winning his 50th game, weakened in the ninth and the Tigers scored twice to tie the score. The White Sox beat the Senators, 4 to 2,* at Washington when Don Kolloway delivered a two-run double in the llth, following singles by Luke Appling and Whitcy Platt. Ed Smith, with brief relief help, was thc winner. The Browns beat thc Athletics Railroad & Ash Sts. I'honc 21!)5 . July 12. (Un — Louise liioiiKh or neverly Hills. Cal.. and IJorls Hart of Miami.
