Sports Writer Bucky Harris ami his Yankee refugees are licking their chops over a six-^ame Washington win streak while the world champs squirm in the .second division. Ever since the "btg deal" senl Jnckie Jensen, Archie Wilson and Spec Shea to Washington for Irv Noren, the ex*Yanks have been hitting and pitching like crazy.

The veteran Sid Hudson didn't need much help behind his five-hit effort. While the Senators continued to spree, the Ynnks still were shaking their heads ovev the strange sight of two straight Cleveland wins nt Yankee Stadium. Mike Gurcia got home with n 1-1 victory even though the Yanks nicked him for 12 hils. Stadium A Jinx The sIndium Is the place the Indians are supposed to fold their tepees Find steal silently into the nlghf. Last year (heir pennant bnom grounded on the banks of the Harlem, where they won only one out o[ 11 stnrts. For the fifth straight time Yankee Vic Raschl failed to RO the route, yielding eight hits ami live runs before retiring at the end of the fifth. The Indinns needed that decision to stick one game behind the league-leading- Boston Red Sox, who crushed Chicngo, 7-2, on southpaw Bill Henry's pitching and batting. The rookie backed up his five-hit work with R triple and single that drove in two runs. II was his fourth straight. Johnny Pesky's ground vules fice and an outfield fly accounted for the only run lu the first inning. Kellner gave Jive hits, Harriet only Jour.

It was Maglic's win, his fifth straight. In 45 innings "The Barbur" has allowed only 22 hits and just five earned 1 runs. He gave up only six hits to the Cards, two by Solly Hcnitis. Howie Pollet broke into the win column for the first time this year with a five-hitter as Pittsburgh broke a six-game losing slump io whip the Phillies, 5-1. Five errors, two each by Gran Ilamncr and Connie Hyan, ruined loser Russ Meyer. Pour of Iho Pirate runs were 'unearned. The scheduled Boston-at-Chlcago dt\y game was postponed because of cold.

Trades Change Picture The club got only 162 points, the lowest of any team in the majors. Then how come nil tills big talk? Well, two trades made last Saturday pie, they have never risen [ram the second division. Yet the base- —-— ball picture hasi brightened —| temporarily a t least — that Calvin Grit lUh,j vice - president of the Senators, was saying today "We have some young pitchers on our farm clubs who are coming along fine. We've been figuring all along that we should have a Ja< * le JenMn chance for the pennant next year." an the Associated Senators Press poll for eighth have made most of the difference. The principal characters in the swap: senators Irv Noren, who went to the New York Yankee*, tad Sam Mele, who went to the Chicago White Sox. In return, the Senatori got, a wholesale collection that included Jim Busby ij the Whit* Box, and Archie Wilson, Jackie Jeiuea and Spec Shea ot the Yanks. ~It may be just a coincidence, but Washington hasn't lost since it Bol Its new look. Last night the Sent. , tors won their sixth game in a row, ' with Sid Hudson pitching a ftve- hlttcr to bsat the Detroit Tigeri, 6-2. Real th« Best The Senators haven't be«n picking on soJt touches. Among th» pitchers either beaten or chased: Bob Pe)Jer, Tommy Byrne, Bobby Cain, Ned Carver and Art Houtteman. But Grifflcn admits the newcomers are playing over their heads. "They'll simmer down some," h» said. "What we hope Is that they won't simmer down too soon." The polar regions have relattvriy dry air.
