MAT 9, 1952 BLVTHEVTLLE (ASX.1 COURIER PAGE SEVEN Rampaging Indians Squelch Yankee Jinx, Sweep Series By JACK BAM) AP Sporti Writer It said here a month ago Cleveland couldn't win the pennant until they learned how to win at Yankee Stadium. Well, bud, they seem to learn fast. ^ Not since 1947 had the Indians swept a series in the New York k Yankees' home park until they . humbled the world champs yesterday. 12-5. for > third straight. The Yankee Stadium jinx, the Vic RaschI hex. the Eddie Lopat whammy all went out the window in this first New York - Cleveland series of the season. Raschi got hi: ^ yesterday when [^ g^ne the Tribe's new cleanup man, Ray Boone, \vent on the awrpath. Boone struck the oig blov.- of the game, a three-run homer in the fifth. It hardly mat-! tered that Cleveland poured home 1 six runs in the ninth. You remember '51. Cleveland won only one game in New York all season. Now they're sure of at least a 200 per cent Improvement. Feller Was Winner Bobby Feller was the official ^'inning pitcher as the Tribe finished its first eastorn trip with a fine 7-3 record. But Feller needed solid help from Bob Lemon. The Yanks nicked Feller for 12 hits in _ 2-3 innings. Lemon gave them only one the rest of the way—a ninth-Inning homer by Gene Wood- iing. Boone hit a homer, Harry Simpson legged his way around the bases on an inside-the-park blow and Al Rosen and Bob Kennedy tripled over the head of Irv Noren, new Yank centerfielder. This crushing defeat that sunk the Yanks three games under ,500 and 5'/2 games off the lead, came at a particularly embarrassing "moment. The latest averages show Archie Wilson, one of the men sent to Washington in the Noren deal, leading the league with a .4S1 batting average. Winging home nfter this success ftil tour, the Indians were only 18 percentage points behind the leading Boston Red Sox. All even in the "games behind" they trailed in points because they have lost one more while winning one more. Chisox Win The Chicago White Sox salvaged the finale at Boston, 4-2, on Saul Rogovin's five-hit pitching. Ed Stewart's two-run homer off loser Ray Scarborough in the seventh was the crusher, ending the White Sox's six-game losing streak. Big Jim Rivera, the St. Louis Browns' slumping rookie flash, snapped Out of it with a ninlh- 1 inning home run that beat Phila- delphia, 9-8. Rivera, benched for weak hitting, got into the game just in time to make a sensational catch in the sixth. Then, with old Satchel Paige flim-flamming the A J s, Rivera reached Carl Scheib for the game winner. Washington struggled 11 innings to a 4-4 deadlock with Detroit in a "suspended game" that will be completed before a May 31 night game. Play was halted after the ILth to let the Tigers catch a train for horn P. Koslo Blanks Cards Dave Koslo continued his mas tery over the St. Louis Cardinals as the New York Giants lightened the National League race with a 3-0 win. The defending champs now are only 28 percentage points behind the idle Brooklyn Ddodgers. The surging giants rushed Ihrough their first western trip with a glittering S-l record. They have won 13 of their last 15 games. Willard Marshall tripled with the bases loaded and singled home a fourth run in the Boston Braves' G-4 triumph over Chicago. The loss dropped the Cubs into a third-place tie with idle Cincinnati. Winner Jim Wilson was wild, requiring relief help from Lew Sheldon Jones and Lew Burdette to save his win over Turk Lown. The Philadelphia at Pittsburgh game was postponed because of rain and wet grounds.
