Washington's 31-year- old veteran, edfject Cleveland's! Bob Lemon, 2-1, in mi exciting 13- nning battle at Griffith Stadium. All in all, it was quite a night for the pipe-and-slippetK set. The kids had their fun yesterday, too. Tlio.sc rollicking St.Louis Browns, afler breaking even with tile world champs in New York, bowled over the Boston Red Sox rookies, 6-1. Thus did Rogers Hornsby's upstarts, cellar tenants In '51. move within one game of the first place Red Sox. The Chicago Cubs, somewhat lore mature than the Brownies, continued to play like the spring sensations of the National as (hey bumped off Brooklyn, 7-2. ft look a trick of mathematics to keep the Cubs out of first place. Chicago, last In 1351. actually had a half game edge in the won-and-lost standings but Brooklyn held a 13- potnt percentage point edge 127 to .714. Hearn Bea(s Hues Jim Hearn found (he revamped Pittsburgh Pirates just as accommodating as his "cousins" of old as he pitched the New York Olants to a 13-5 romp. That made his lifetime count H-2 over I he Dues. Robin R o b e r s t, the Phillies' youthful ace. racked his win No. 3 with home run help from Nippy Jones and Connie Ryan as he downed St. Louis, 6-3, with an eight-hitter. Cincinnati's Herman Wchmcler needed relief help from Prank Smith to put down a ninth-inning Boston uprising- saving a 7-6 edge for the Reds. Getting back to Yankee Stadium where 21.127 turned out for the first night game oftiie season HouUeman had the Yonks at Ills' mercy most of the iili;hl. Sloppv play by his mates cost him two in Hie eiKlilh but he still v »n in con- irol with a 5-.1 edge.

The official scorer ruled it a hit on (he theory (lint Kcll would have beaten the throw to first. Old Joe retired the first 19 A's until lie walked Elmer Vnlo wlih one out in the seventh. Righthandcd Bob Hooper was tile loser. Gil Coan's double and Prank Campos' single in the 13th broke up the duel between Hudson and Lemon Bt Griffith stadium. Conn opened the 13lh with his double. Afler Irv Noren popped out. rookie Campos from Cuba slashed a single to center that meant the ball game. Wes Westrum's third-Inning homer with uvo on was (he big blow in. a seven-run inning that knocked Mel Queen oul of the majors. After he took his shower. Queen was handed a one-way ticket lo Hollywood by General Manager Branch Rickey. Hank Thompson also homered for the Giants and Ralph Kiner hit his second of the year for the Pirates.
