FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1949 BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COUKIEB NEWS Dodgers Humble Cardinals 19 to 6 To Sweep Series By Joe Eelchler ST. LOUIS, Sept. 23. (AP)—Jackie Robinson hit the nail on the head today when he said, "It's going to be really rough from here on in." What the Brooklyn Dodger second baseman meant was that neither the Brooks nor the front-running St Louis Cardinals could afford to lose any more as the games dwindled down to a precious few. * The thinnest of margins—a half game — separated the two deadly rivals following the Brooks rousing 19-6 triumph over the Cards last night. The Brooks have played one more game than the Cards and lost It. That could prove the difference. NATIONAL . ."The half game lead they (Cards) old might be a big break," Manager Burl Shotton of the Dodgers said. "They still *ave the advantage. We're not Going to win them all, but neither are they." " can't worry about them. "We . however." he addert. "We've got to many HOW THEY STAND get out there and win as we car." The Dodgers have six games left, only two of them at home. They play two with the Phils in Brooklyn and two in Philadelphia and meet the Braves twice in Boston. The Flatbush crew is idle today, but engage the Phillies in a night game tomorrow. Dyer Optimistic Eddie Dyer, the Red Birds' mana- ber, was optimistic despite the one- sided defeat, "We're still In front," he said, "and they've got %o catch us.. Also remember we took the season's series from them." The. Cards are idle today, but resume action against the Chicago Cubs tomorro night. w At Sportsman's Park they have Jive games left with the Cubs and two with Pittsburgh. While the Dodgers mopped up the Cards before 30,765 fans at Sportsman Park, ' the American League pennant picture remained unchanged. The first place New Tork Yankees' scheduled night game with last place Washington was rained out. The second place i Boston Red Sox, who trail the SJ'Yanks by two games, were idle as . was the rest of the American League. Brooklyn belted Red Munger and five St. Louis relief pitchers for 19 hits. The Dodgers scored in every Inning except the second and seventh. Forilla the Bern Carl PuriJIo led the massacre, driving home seven runs on three doubles and two singles. Gil Hodges knocked home five on three singles. Duke Snider contributed two doubles and two singles to the attack that saw all but .=Pee 'Wee Reese • and Spider Jorgensen collect at least one safety. • Lefty Joe Halt en, who had failed (o finish against the Cards in six previous starts, glided to his 12th victory. Hatten allowed two hits over the first five rounds and then eased up and granted eight in the last four. Two of the Card hits were homers by Stan Muslal—his 34th— and Tommy Glaviano. Jackie Robinson of the Dodgers regained the circuit batting lead from the Cards' Enos Slaughter. Robinson banged out two hits in four trips to boost his mark from ^.342 to .343. Slaughter went hitlers ^pn five tries and dropped from 3*5 to .342. In other JTationaJ League games the Pirates blanked the Boston Braves. 1-rj, behind Mnrry Dickson; Chicago edged Philadelphia, -3-2. and the New York Giants divided with the Reds In Cincinnati, winning the first game. 3-1. and dropping the second, 8-4.
