PAGE TEN BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NKWS The Man Is Having Great Year- Looms as Top Hitter in Game lly JOE ICetCIILKK Associated Press Sports Wrllrr If Stan Musial isn't the greatest hitler in baseball today, (lien his figures are mighty deceptive. At that, some of his slug-King feats this season have been aiinost unbelievable One look at Musial's sky-scraping*— .467 batting mark and it Is easy to understand why the St. Louis Cardinals are In second place only a halt length behind the pace-setting Philadelphia Phils. The mighty Cardinal ace smacked a single, double and triple yes- j terday to lead St. Louis to an 8-7 J_:..__l. _..__ L\. - *-.r.._l i. r, _ . ,.„,. . . . j., .,,.„,.., ....... 'new look," have triumph over the Cincinnati Reds He drove In a run and scored twice Musial now has lilt safely In nl but two of the 19 games he's played One hitless game can be discounted because he appeared nnly as a pinel. hitter. In another hitless effort hr was stopped by Pittsburgh's Cliff Chambers on the second day of the season. Red Mungrr was the winner, although lie nearly blew an early 8-1 lead. The Reds came back steadily leaving the potential tying and winning runs on the bases in the ninth Inning whet) Al Brnzle retired Hed Stallcup for (he last out. Ken Raffensberger dropped his fifth game In six decisions. Burs Stop Cubs Johnny Hopp, veteran Pittsburgh (Irst baseman, enjoyed the baiting day of his major league career as the Pirates swept both ends of a doubleheacler from the Cubs in Chicago. 6-5 and 16-9. Hopp collected six hits III six times at bat In the second game. He smashed two home rim-s, drove in three runs and scored three times. In all, the Pirates registered 21 hits off six pitchers to win the second game in a breeze, but It took n pinch single by rookie George Strickland with the bases loaded in the ninth to pull the first game out of the fire. Strickland drove In the tying and winning runs to end a three-game Pittsburgh losing streak. The six-game winning, streak of the Phillies went by the boards when the New York Giants won n -1-3 thriller in the opener of a doubleheader in Philadelphia. Successive triples by Willie Jones and nick Sisler had tho tying run on third with only one out. In the ninth. Larry Jansen. however, bore down to retire the next two batters without a score. . Phillies Lead In Second The Phils came from behind a 6-1 deficit to forge ahead. 9-7, at tho end of eight Innings of the night- cup. The game was hailed at this point by the Pennsylvania curfew law. Under new National League rules, it will be resumed from that point on when the two teams meet a«»tn In Philadelphia. Until then, the game will not figure in the •landing;. Walker Cooper continued his heavy hitting since Joining Boston, but he could not prevent the Brooklyn Dodgers from gaining a 6-4 triumph over the Braves. Cooper, who drove in five runs against the Dodgers Saturday with a homer and double, collected another four-bagger as well as a pair of singles in four times at bat. Warren Spahn. Bos- Ion's ace lefthander, however, was not up to par. He was slugged for seven hits and five funs before retiring after four innings. Lefty Hal Newhonser. long the kingpin of Detroit's pitching staff ran Into heavy going In his first start as the St. Louis Browns tamed the Tigers, 7-3. The 28-year-old veteran, sidelined for a month because of a sore left shoulder, lasted only three innings. He allowed four hits, five runs, walked four and fanned two. The New York Yankees remained a half-game behind the American League leading Tigers when the visiting Philadelphia Athletics overcame a 7-1 deficit to edge them out 9-8. Seven hits, a pair of walks and an error by Tommy Hcnrich gave the A's the seven runs in the fifth. Pete Suder had two singles in the' :i Inning, Dropo Again Big Walter Dropo smacked two home runs as Boslon divided a double-header with the Washington Senators. The rookie first baseman homered in each game. His fiflh four-bagger with one on in the first Inning was more than enough for Mel Parnell, who gained his "fourth victory with an 8-1 decision. Dropo's sixth round tripper, with two on. was hardly enough as the Nats went, on a 19-hit rampage to win. 10-5. Sam Mele. ex-Red" Sox outfielder, got four hits in the nightcap and Eddie Yost homered in each game for the Nats Chicago and Cleveland divided a doubleheatior. The White Son. with MIcscy Haefner pitching a six-hitter, won the opener. 3-2. Mike Garcia held the Sox to four hits to give the Indians a 3-1 triumph in the nightcap.

Midnight, May 17 Is the deadline for major league clubs to reduce rosters to a maximum of 25.

Mize led the National League in batting In 193!). he drove in tho most runs in 1940, '42 and '47. He won the home run crown in 1938 and '10, and lied Ralph atiner for Ihe honor in 1947 and '48. He hit three homers in one game five iime.s, a record. He reached his homer peak in 1947 with 51. He also led the league in doubles, triples, runs scored, total bases and slugging percentage. His 11- year homer total is .316 and his lifetime batting mark Is .319. Mize was sold by the Giants to the Yankees last Aug. 29 for n reported 540,000. With the Yankees he collected only six hits in 23 times al bat for a .261 figure, but won a World Series game against Brooklyn with a pinch hit .single that drove in the winning runs. + Maybe even thai. Usually the word recurring , Is "distance." This Is true particularly in figuring three-year-olds Just (ii'tVuu around to running a mile and more. The front runners I •. the Kentucky Derby showed they could weather a mile and a quarter—one- sixteenth longer than (.he Preakness. Hut where did they show their distance stuff? In the stretch? There poses a new problem. The old Pimlico course, where the No. 2 lilt in Ihe triple crown '.vill he run Saturday, has a shorter stretch than either Churchill Downs or Belmont. Derby runners had 1,234'i feet to make a heeling for home after the last- turn. The Pimlico stretch is only 950 feet from the lasl turn to the finish. Can Mean \ Lot This can mean a lol to such a come-from-behind runner as C. T. Chenery's Hill Prince, which could do no better than second in the derby, whet] *he distance was reduced to a mile on the longer Bel- monb stretch 1,147 fcct^in the Withers last Saturday. Hill Prince turned the tables on King Ranch's Midtilcgruimd. the Derby winner. So whjn.ihese two hook up. again in the Preakness, probably as the favorites, ihe place to be looking closest at them will be coming around the last turn. Any other colt too far behind them i.s going to miss terribly those extra yards in the final run. Calumet's Ponder couldn't over- coine the lack of .straightaway in last year's Preakness after coming from behind to win the Derby. Slymie, another noted latecomer, always (omul the short Pimlico stretch tough. As o( today, five other colts are considered good prospects to compete with Middleground and Hill Prince in the Preakness. They do not include Your Host, for which tile longer distances seem just a little too much. His owners scralched him from the list, yesterday. The prospects are MIS. Andrew Schutlingcr's Fcrd, third in Ihe Withers; C. V. Whitney's Mr. Trouble, third in Ihe Derby; Mrs. James Carson's Kinsman. Middleground's stablemate, on the mark; Sylvesler W Labrol's Arcave. and William H. Labrot's Balkan, who earned his potential post by winning a six- furlong race at. Pimlico Saturday.
