By JACK HAND • (Associated TIKI SporU Writer) ; Everything happens in Brooklyn! It's corny but it's true. Remember the day three men wound up on third base? The fly balls that bounced off Babe Herman's head? The sparrow that flew out of Casey Stengel's hat? The 1950 Dodgers last night add-* — _—, . cd the novelty of a three-mim race from third base to home plate that wound up an "interference" double play by the Chicago Cubs. Sound complicated? Well, it Is, Jackie Robinson was on third base and Gil Hodges on second In the eighth Inning. Eddfe Mlksfs hit a ball to third base. That set It up. = The third baseman threw to the 1 plate and catcher Mickey Owen chased Robinson back to third, i When Robby arrived he found Hodges also standing on Hie bag. Owen touched both men and the umpire ruled Hodges out. Then Miksis headed for second base and Owen threw to Wayne Terwilliger. Although he had been ruled out, Hodges started for the plate in a three-man race with Robinson and Owen. Head lor Home Down the stretch they came virtually shoulder to shoulder. Robinson first, Hodges second and Owen • third. But the finish was not offi- ' cial. An objection was lodged. The relay from Terwllliger was taken by first baseman Phil Cavarretta. protecting home plate. He tagged . Robinson sliding across the rubber. Plate umpire Art Gore ruled Robinson out because Hodges Interfered. The official scoring was a double play—third baseman Bob Ramaz- zottl to Owen to Terwilliger to Cavarretta. Owen got. the pulout, at third and Cavarretta the one at home. •• Oh yes, the score. Brooklyn won, ' 8-1, with rookie pitcher Dan Bankhead going the route for the Ilrsl time. It was the Negro righthand- er's fourth' straight victory, break- Ing a live-game win streak by. the Cubs' Bob Rush. Duke Snider, ,'George Shuba and Roy Campanella smashed homers off Rush, who hadn't thrown a gopher ball In all his previous games. Andy Pafko ruined Bankhead's shutout with .a homer. Those Philadelphia Phils stuck ; right on the Dodgers' heels by blasting six runs In the eighth Inning ; for R 6-3 edge over Pittsburgh. Dick ,6isler's three-run homer off Murry :Dickson started the big uprising. Boyer Gets Shut Out : Hoofcfe Cloyd Boyer pitched fine relief ball for the St. Louis Cardinals after lefty Max Lanier had to leave the game due to a pain In his shoulder. The Lanter-Boyer team shut, out the New York Giants, 2-0, -with four hits. Monte Kennedy pitched * five-hitter, but hits by ^ Red Schoendlenst and Slan Musial •and a steal of home by Stan cost him the game. Warren Spahn turned in his best c/fort of the season, a three-hitter for Boston against Cincinnati, 4-1. The Braves got to Ewell Blackwell for six hits and all four runs before he gave way to Frank 1 Smith. Rain washed out the "big game" 'In the American, the first of the New York Yankee - Detroit Tigers . series, but the Boston Red Sox clung to an early lead to down the St. Louis Browns, 7-5, for Mel Parnell's fifth victory. Two triples by . Al Zarilla and doubles by Walt Dropo, Billy Goodman and Ted Williams led the 10-hit attack. Gene Bearden, the 1048 world series hero but a flop ever since, bounced back with a fine relief job for Cleveland against Washington. Replacing Early Wynn in the second, Bearden allowed only four hits in seven and one-third Innings for a 5-4 decision over Joe Haynes. The Chicago While Sox came from behind to topple Philadelphia, 10-7, with five runs in the eighth. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)

"I'm trying to forget it," he grinned ruefully, "but I guess I never will. It's one of those things a guy remembers to his dying day." Outside this clinging memory, Glaviano is none the worse for wear for that harrow- Ing chapter In his young life when his three successive errors handed the Brooklyn Dodgers a miracle 0-8 victory In the ninth inning last week. His batting average Is still around the .320 mark and his St. Louis Cardinal teammates will tell you Tommy Is one of the best hustlers In baseball. "It was hell," the chunky little third baseman recalled. "I never felt worse in my life. After the third one I Just stood there frozen to the spot. The boys walked past me without saying n word. As a matter of fact, the skipper (Manager Eddie Dyer) still hasn't, said a word about it to me. Marly Consoles "How I got to the clubhouse I don't know. I sat there with my iicad clown for goodness knows how long. I didn't even bother t o take off my uniform. No one even looked nt me.

'The rest of them bobble a few,' he told me. Stan Muslal came over and said Stay in there, Dag, don't let it hrow yon.' " "Oh, yes," Glaviano recalled 'Dyer did refer to the incident once While having breakfast In Boston :he next day, Dyer pointed to an article in a newspaper which said n Jest thai I had jumped out of :he window and Dyer hud committed suicide. "'Hey, Glav,' he grinned. "We ivon this out-, anyhow. We're both here so I gness this guy is wrong; " Arkasas Pifcher Signed by Texan DALLAS, May 25 —MV- James Lee (Sonny) Byrd.
