Six of the eight teams in the American League changed places yesterday when Xew V'ork took over second spot only 4U games off the pace and the Tigers shoved into a third-place tie with Boston. Kizzy Trout gave the Brownies plenty of nothing with a neat four- hit whitewash job, 1-d, doubling tbe string of zeroes matched by Washington's Johnny Xiggeling. Tuesday night. It took a double steal engineered by Joe Hoover and Eddie Mayo to beat Denny Gatehouse. Dizzy became the first American League liurler to toss four shutouts. The Brownies had been blanked only seven times all season but this second successive job coming when the club bad lost six of its last seven, was a particularly damaging blow to all-St. Louis series plans. Xew York tamed the Washington giant killer but it took 11 innings to do it, 4-2, as Alley Donald handed Roger "Wolff his tenth straight defeat. Boston's hopes faded in a double setback at Philadelphia. 6-1 and 9-4, with Dodo Xewsom lengthening his home scoreless inning streak against Boston to l'(i. * Kenny Kellner became the twenty- third major leaguer to bit a grand slam homer this year, when he connected for the second time in Cleveland's ]0-L' romp over Chicago. Mel Oil's Giants hopped back into the Xational League first division on four successive victories by slaughtering Brooklyn in. 2, behind Bill Voiselle as Chicago was shut out by Cincinnati's Kd Heusser. 2-0. It was the fifth time Yoiselle had stopped the last-place Dodgers in six starts and Brooklyn's sixth straight loss. Pittsburgh's victory splurge was halted at six straight and 17 of IS games when St. Louis' Fred Schmidt shut out the Pirates 4-0 for the Red Birds' eighty-ninth triumph. Preacher Roe was the victim. "With S(> games to go. the Cards, who have won 14 of their last 15 and five in a row need 27 victories to tie the Cubs' ail- time mark. Ron Xorthery's bases-loaded homer gave the Phillies' Dick Barrett a first game 9-7 edge over Jim Tohin of Boston, but Nate Andrews out- steadied Charley Schanz to even the score in the finale, 4-3.

Suds Shellac Padres 6-0 in Fourth Straight Series Win By United Press A'eteran Carl Fischer of the Seattle Rainiers missed the Pacific Coast League pitchers' hall of fame by one hit—made by his rival San Diego moundsman—as he shut out the Padres with a single bingle. 6-0, last night for the fourth straight Seattle win in the series. The Los Angeles Angels continued to make a runaway of the pennant race by blanking Hollywood, 5-0, to take a 4-1 series lead and a nine- game margin over the Twinks. San Francisco edged Oakland, 1-0, and Sacramento topped Portland, 4-2, the Seals moving into a third-place tie with the Beavers. Fischer struck out six Padres and gave up two bases on balls. Nubs Kleinke, San Diego twirler, spoiled the no-hitter when he singled with two out in the fifth.

Oakland dropped into sixth place behind Seattle as the Seals won, 1-0, in 11 innings to take a :i-i series lead. Damon Hayes held San Francisco to .six hits, while Cowboy Ray Han-ell was allowing eight, but lost in the overtime when Ken Ouintini got on base thanks to one of five Acorn errors of the night and John Cavalli singled him home. Sacramento made it 3-1 over fort- land in their series, the Solons pounding Don Pulford for four runs and nine hjts to overcome a two-run Beaver lead established in the first on John Gill's homer. Karl Porter was the winning moundsman. FORMER ASSEMBLYMAN DIES NAPA, Aug. 26. (UR)—Walter B.

A few weeks ;mo ally observer would have unhesitatingly picked the Tigers. Tonight, with Laniont a vastly improved nine, a mighty battle is imminent.

The team's hatting record is about on a par with Delano, although they have never been able to hit Tiger pitching effectively. That's the setup.

(UR>—The U'ashiiiKtnM Redskins, aided by a mental lapse of the .March Field Army All-Stars, salvaged the honor of professional football ni«hf, 7-.'J. after a near-humliliiii; 1 by the former collegiate greats. The Redskins' lone touchdown caught the All-Stars fl.ufooted as Mike Aliclca galloped out of a mob with a fumble, permissible under pro rules governing the second half of the contest. The Stars watched him run. forget- too lout; that they weren't play- inj? under the collegiate rules of the first half. Sixty thousand fans saw bis Mike intercept a fourth-quarter pass from Jack Jacobs, drop it, prab it afialn, and dart out of a rini; of Ail-Stars and over the Roal line :!,"> yards away. Leading until then on Krnie Smith's fi-yard field goal, the Stars had twice stopped the Redskins within their L'll-yard line, and outshone the pro team in all departments except presence o f mind. The Redskins failed to get near the Stars' goal in the entire first half. but. warmed up somewhat Jn the final frame. The Stars missed a touchdown of their own in the second frame when Bill Dudley, the Virginia ace. lashed a L'O.yard pass to Bob Kennedy, who packed it to pay dirt ,15 yards away, then saw it called back because Dudley had fired hi.s shot from too close to the line of scrimmage. Surprise feature of the game was the complete smothering of the Redskins' great passing star, Sammy Baugh. The passes he got away were dropped by his teammates, and more died aborning in Sammy's hurried hands. Nelson Leads Ail-American Race for $13,462 Golf Prize ClIIC.-\nO, Aug. By I,. E.

Tbe tall Texan was in front of the pack at the half-way mark of the Ail-American open tournament at Tarn O'Shanter Country Club and headed for a $13.462.50 payoff—golf- dom's biggest prize.

Nelson, pro-tourney favorite, yesterday shot a 70, 2 under par, to land out front—just where most of those i enthusiastic links devotees who ' swarmed around Tarn O'Shanter'B course by the thousands figured he'll be gone Sunday when the firing Is over. Xeison's 70 and his opening 68 gave him a six-under-par 138 for the first ;tli holes. McSpaden, leading money winner this season, and Ohezzi added 69s to their first round 71s. SORE GUMS?
