PACK SIX BI/miEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWB Mound Duty is Greater Factor Than Home Runs in Deciding Who yW// Be in '4 7 Wor/d Series By CARL LUNDQUIST (United Press Sports Writer) NEW YORK, July 10. (UP) — Baseball's all-stars came down to earth today, leaving the skies free to'flying'saucers and (he fans free to figure 'out'—If they can.— who will win the National League flag. if; anything was proved in Tucs- <ia>''s. mlci-seasoi! "mcllerdrama" at Wrtgley Field In. Chicago, It was tln't even in this year of home runs ,to? practically everybody, good pitching still provides the iHithoii- tj'-ivhen tlie. chips .are down. The greatest 'sluggers in the game yWcre In the all-star classic, but so were the greatest pitchers nut! at the '.finish It. was the liuvlers who were the heroes as the American League chalked up a 2 to 1 victory I over the Nationals. Paradoxically,' it was. the lowest scoring game in the 14 years oj'the series. That being the case, it appears I logical that the team best fortified [ with--pitchers from here on out should worm its way to the front at the. finish in the weird National League race in which six cluta still are very much in the pennant running. And because the defending: world j champion St. Louis Cardinals and ] the consistent Boston Braves seem ; to have the most solid selection of i front line pitchers, they are likely to -liave an edge that the but-happy \ New York Giants and the young and spunky Brooklyn Dodgers cannot surmount. | For the Cardinals, still In fotirOi pla'ce despite a fine home stand" i:: which they won 13 out of 17 gamc3, their Eastern road trip which begirt tonight against the Giants in the polo grounds may be a "make or'break" junket. Beaten seven out of nine times by the Giants this season, they must play them five games in three days "with double headers on Friday n nil Saturday utter which they must play a (hiril straight twin bill with the Hraves in Boston on Sunday, Dyer Has Four Star ITurlcrs Manager Eddie Dyer now has -"oiir dependnble ilingers In Goori'c Mitnger, wlio has won 7 and lost I, Harry Brechecn with a 0-5 record, Al- Brazie at 8-4. and rookie Jim Hearn, his s'n-pri-re package wi'.h 5-3 mark. Murry Dickson, one of his best last year, nlso appeared 10 be coining out of Ills early'season doldrums, having hurled a four- hit shutout in his last start, but Howie Pollct, the 1940 ace, remains ; question mark. 'Billy Soulhivorth's Braves, who apparently were helped tremendously, by the deal in which they acquired the sulky Bill Voiselle from the Giants, how have four front Uric pitchers in Warren Spnhn iu 11-3. Johnny Sain 10-5, Charley Barrett B-6. 'surf Voiselle 3-S. The Dodgers, setting the NntlonM League pace one gs-me uhenri of the Braves, have had only two dependable moundsmen in Ralph " Branca 12-6, and rookie Harry Taylor 7-2. With the third place Giants it is strictly a case of (he hitlers overpowering "ie opposition and the hui'lcrs going along for the ride. In the American League the Vankces, rifling an eight-game winning streak, start a long Western trip against the Browns in Si Louis and if they continue at something close to the pace they have set recently, they may make a runaway of the race. .'they have mi eight gainfi inuri;m in first place and what helps their cause is that none of the so-called contenders, the Tigers, Red Sox and, yes iliat's right, the Athletics, can t*et off on a good winning streak. The /Uliletics opeij at Cleveland, the Red Sox at Detroit nnd the .Senators at Chicago in other American Le.-ifeMie games ivhlly in the National, besides the Giant-Cardinal series, the Culxs play at UroDk- lyn, !bc Pirates at Philadelphia and the Hods at Boston. 16 Pro Linksmen Tee Off in Annual Inverness Meel TOLEDO.
