TOP BATTLERS WILL MEET TONIGHT AT STADIUM .Yanks Regain Clamp on Loop Lead as Browns, Tigers Split By JOE KKH III.KK Associated Press Sports Writer "Winning the close ones lias enabled the New York Yankees to take possession ot the top rung in the hot American League scramble. Including yesterday's nightcap 4-3 victory over the Boston lied Kox, the Me- Cartliynien boast a record of 22 one- run decisions against IS such defeats. Of their fa extra-inning tilts, tht Yankees have taken 7. The Yanks had temporarily lost their first-place hold to the Detroti Tigers when they dropped the opener to Rookei Clem Dreisowerd and the Red Sox, 3-2. By winning the second game, the Yankees regained the lead as both the Tigers and the St. Louis Browns divided their twin-bills, leaving the Bengals still a half game he- liind and the Browns in third place, cue game away. The Red Sox are three lengths off the pace. The Tigers have done even better ttian the Yankees. Sieve O'Xeill's men have captured 27 one-run games while losing only 11, and have annexed 8 of their 11 extra-inning contests. But for their poor showing in overtime games, the Browns would still be leading the league. Yesterday's 3-2, 11-iniilng defeat by the AVhile Knx in the nightcap after having won the opener, C-2, kept the Brownies from deadlocking the lead. It marked their twelfth extra-inning loss this year compared to only six won. They've dropped 23 one-run affairs, winning only 17. Dreisewerd gained his second vlc- toVy of the year, both against the Yankees, holding the league leaders to seven hits. Clem w,<m his own game by doubling in the seventh aud scoring the deciding run. Another rookie, Mel Queen of the Yanks, won his fifth of the season, -imiting the Sox to seven blows in the nightcap, one of which was UGorge Metkovich's single that extended his batting streak through 25 games. Hal Newhouser spun a four-hitter tigainst the Cleveland Indians for his twenty-fourth triumph, as Detroit won, 6-0. The Tribe shelled Dizzy Trout from the mound to win the aftermath. 7-4.

Ernie Pieper Hilds Amateur Links Crown BY CLAI'DIA NETTLES By United Prese PEBBLE BEACH, Sept. 51.— Ernie Pieper, Jr., husky San Jose links veteran, ruled 1944 California golf today, adding the state amateur title to his open crown by outdriving 17-year-old Bobby Rosburg to win ~> and 4 over the fog-enshrouded Pebble Beach course yesterday in the :iB-hole finals of the thirty-third California state amateur golf championships. Pieper, 32-year-old seed salesman, won his second title in IS tries, repeating his 1941 victory. Rosburg, a, Stanford University sophomore from San Francisco, was in the finals last year also, losing to Elmer Clites of Stockton, who went out in the first round this year. The youthful Stanford star, down four holes after the first seven, fought: gamely to keep in the running but conceded to Pieper's birdie four on the thirty-second after going into a sand trap. Pieper, whose long drives fre quently disappeared into the fog that held the gallery to f>no spectators, turned in a 75 for the first 18. Both men had trouble with their putts on the tricky greens, but Rosburg's woods failed him as be took an XI to go to lunch five down. At the turn in the afternoon round, both were even part with ,'ifis, and Rosburg birdied the twenty-ninth to cut Pieper's lead to four-up. They halved the next two holes but the San Jose star ran out the match by getting his third birdies of the day on the thirty-second. Pieper found the five-par 4SO yard second hole to his liking, going one stroke under on it twice. Rosburg also carded three birdies, all in the afternoon. COWS Doctor's Fast Relief Don't tuffer.
