Monday Evening, June 27, 1955. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Fifteen Yankees Benefit As Red Sox Rap White Sox Twice Pitchers Enjoy Hitting Spree in Both Leagues Willard Nixon Beats Chicago With Three-Run Double in Seventh; Vernon Law Drives Home Three Tallies as Pirates Split With Cubs. Pi'chers in both leagues staged their own "hitting picnic" Sunday and the majority of 'em certainly had their fill at the plate. Guys , likt Willard Nixon of the Red Sox, Alex Kellner and Ray Herbert of the Athletics, Vern Law of the Pirates, Jackie Collum of the Redlegs and Ned Garver of the Tigers got in some- mighty fine licks Sui.day as hurlers in both circuits slammed a total of 19 hits and drove In 11 runs. Nixon exploded a three-run double in the seventh inning of the opener to break a 2-all tie and give the Red Sox a 5-2 victory over the White Sox. Boston then went on to win its 16th game in 20 starts by taking the second game, 8-2, behind Tom Brewer. K.ellner Hurls One-Hitter Kellner not only hurled a one- hitter against the Orioles in beating them, 1-0, in the first of two games, but his second single of the contest drove in the only run in the sixth inning. Herbert drove in two runs in the nightcap to help the Athletics sweep the twin-bill, 5-2, and hang the seventh straight defeat on Baltimore. Law was instrumental in ending Pittsburgh's -six-game losing streak when he drove in three runs with a home run and a single to beat the Cubs, 5-4. But big Bob Rush gave up only five hits in pitching the Cubs to a 2-1 triumph in the second game. Collum collected two of Cincinnati's 17 hits while beating Philadelphia, 16-5, in the opener of a doubleheader as Gus Bell, Stan Palys and Ted Kluszewski each homered, and Art Fowlei gave the Redlegs a sweep with a five-hit 5-0 win over'the Phils in the finale. Like Collum, Garver also helped himself to two hits although relief. pitcher Al Aber was credited with Detroit's 10-inning 4 decision over the Senators. Washington t h e n snapped a nine-game losing streak in the nightcap when Mickey McDermott beat the Tigers, 13-4, while scattering 10 hits. The Yankees split a douibleheader with the Indians, Cleveland winning the opener, 5-0, as Early Wynn pitched a three-hitter and Ralph Kiner homered, but losing tiie nightcap, 2-0, when Whitey Ford pitched a four-hitter for New York. Even though they split, the Yankees increased their'American League lead to three games over the second-place White Sox, who drop'ped both of their games after having won five straight. Braves Shutout Dodgers Bob Buhl limited the Dodgers to five hits in pitching the Braves to a 4-0 victory. Milwaukee broke a scoreless deadlock with a run in the sixth that was set up by Pee- Wee Reese's error and Ed Mathews added the clincher when he poled his 17th homer with two on in the eighth. Ed Roebuck, who relieved Russ Meyer in the fifth after the Dodger starter was injured in a collision at first base, was the loser. The Cardinals t r o u n c e d the G-iants in both ends of a doubleheader, 9-2 and 7-2, and left the world champions 17V4 games off the pace, only one percentage point ahead of the fifth-place Redlegs. Southpaw Harvey Haddix beat the Giants for the first time this season in the openei despite homers by Whitey Lockman and Don Mueller. Larry Jackson was the wniner in the second game although he needed relief in the seventh, a frame in which Locknvan hit his second homer of the day. Stan Musial smashed his 14th homer in the opener off loser Johnny Antonelli while Red Schoendienst and BiU Virdon each homered for St. Louis in the nightcap.
