Yanks Drive Ahead With Double Win; Cleveland Hangs On BT ED WILKS The Associated PreM Just a few days ago Manager Casey Stengel said the New York Yankees had to win all their remaining 10 games to cop the American League pennant. Now they can wrap it up by winning three out of five. It might not fake even that much effort by the Yanks. Any combination of New York victories and — or defeats by second-place Cleveland totaling three will do it. Still, the Yankees don't have H| Larsen hands down. They've won seven straight, matching their longest success streak of the season, and hav* gained three games on the Indians in ttie important "lost" column—but they still have five games left, one more at Washington tonight and four in Boston beginning with a Friday doubleheader. Th« Senators, beaten 6-3 in the afternoon half of a day-night double-header yesterday, gave the t' last through the second inning. Reliefer Tom Morgan, with help from Konsianty, got the decision. The Ysnfcs scored three in the first off Maury Mc- Dermoit, then scored the clincher In the third as Hank Bauer doubled and moved across on two; long flies. i Cleveland hung on as Early!

Cleveland, which went into a four-game Uilspin after sweeping a pair from Washington, finally shook the slump with a 3-2 decision over Chicago as the White Sox officially fell out of the race. The Indians, with four games left—another at Chicago tonight, then three at Detroit—have to win 'crn all and hope. Washington caught Ford by surprise in th< eighth inning. The stubby southpaw had a four-hitter going and had retired 13 in order. Then he walked s man, and pinch- hitter Jim Lemon, just up from: Chattanooga, walloped a home j run. It took Gary Coleman, Jimi Konstanty, Gerry Staley and fin-' ally Tommy Byrne to get 'em back: on the leash. levee when the Yanks won two, muffed a ninth-inning chance that collected just one run. They had runners on first and third with none out, but Chico Carrasquel hit into a double play. Then, with runners on first and second and two out, George Kell popped up to end it. Detroit beat Kansas City 7-3 and Baltimore, leaving Washington alone in the cellar, made it six straight with a 3-2 and 7-4 sweep r at Boston. The Red Sox now have lost six straight. to the National, Brooklyn took, two from Philadelphia fl-3 and 6-1. Prank Kellert and George Shuba belted homers off the Phil's Robin Roberts. Robin, who lost his 13th against 23 victories, has given up 40 gopher balls — breaking by one the major league mark set by Murry Dicfcson with St.Louis In 1948. Dykes Battles Johnson For Shot at Bobo MIAMI BEACH, Fla. HP)—Bobby Dykes, a transplanted Texan who has become one of Miami's favorite fighters, meets George Johnson of Newark. N. J., in a ID-round middleweight bout tonight and both boxers are expected to "shoot the works." Promoter Chris Dundee announced that the winner is virtually certain to meet middleweight champion Bobo Olson in a non-title bout her Oct. 36. The fight, to be televised nationally (ABC) at 8 p.m. CST. will precede the Rocky Mardano-Archie Moore championship fight in New York to be televised on a closed circuit to a number of theaters. . . The first game was easier forj Willie Mays hit his -19th and 50th the Yanks, although starter Donj home runs as the New York Home Run Happy NL Keeps Banging Away at Records NEW YORK (AP) — The homer happy National League, with a one-season record already packed away, now has opened a barrage on individual major league home run marks. Robin Roberts, Philadelphia's 33- game winner, fell victim to the homer hammering last night Brooklyn, giving up his 39th and 40th of the season—a record total of home runs off a pitcher. Teammate Murry Dickson held the old mark of 39, set in 1948 with St. Louis. Willie Mays of New York poked into the picture, too, swatting two in a doubleheader with Pittsburgh lor a record-equaling total of seven in six consecutive games. Two other Giants, George Kelly (1924) and Walker Cooper U947) already shared the mark. And Monday night. Ernie Banks, Chicago's slugging shortstop, set a record with his fifth grand-slam of the year. Ten players shared the old mark of four. Banks, with 44, set a major league record for shortstops when he walloped his 40th. Prank Kellert and George Shuba tagged Roberts for the tying and record-setting homers in the sec- ond game of a two-night sweep by the Brooklyn Dodgers. The two shots gave the National League champs 201 for the season. Only two clubs, the Giants (who set the. team mark with 221 in 1947> and' the Dodgers (with 208 in '53) ever have hit 200 or more in the majors. In the first game, Don Newcombe gave up his 35th homer of the season, a record for a Brooklyn pitcher. Mays, who tops the majors in homers this year, now has 50. Only six others — Babe Ruth. Jimmy Foxx. Hank Greenberg, Hack Wilson, Ralph Kiner and Johnny MIzc —ever have hit so many. In all, there were 13 homers in the Natoinal yesterday—boosting the record to 1232. The old major, league mark was 1,197, set by the N Lin 1953. The American League one-season record of 973, set in 1950, seems safe. The eight junior circuit clubs have hit only 944 to date. WE'RE DOING FORD OWNERS DAILY i^n ^Hi MM/ PHILLIPS MOTOR CO. 300 Broadway Ph. 3-4453 Football Forum Wyoming Riding High in Skyline Loop (One of a series) By JACK CURTICE- Hod Coach, Utah SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — (NBA) — Wyoming should be the big contender for the Skyline Conference championship. Most of the Cowboy* of last. year's fine team are back, headed by quarterback Joe Mastrogiovanni. I know Phil Dickens will .throw- up his hands and say, "Who? Me, Not again. It's a frame-up." Because last fall the coaches also picked Wyoming, only to see Denver sneak in. Denver lost Coach Bob Blackman, who has been replaced by John Roning, but retains almost a complete line. The pioneers had a tremendous freshman squad, so should be extremely strong. Ed Horvat at tackle and Larry Ross, an end, are top-notch. The backfield has to be rebuilt. Colorado A. and M., with its great quarterback, Gary click, one of the best in the nation last autumn, is a distinct dark horse because of a large number of veterans returning from service, among them center Bob Weber. Ev Faunce took Roning's place at Utah State. The Aggies, first division last year, are optimistic because of a strong, experienced line and a small but fast backfield that's lost only one man. Brigham Young is on the upgrade with fine freshman material to supplement such boys as halfback Phil Oyler. They'll surprise someone. ' New Mexico lost too many players, such as center Larry White, and I am afraid the Lobos will not have a very strong team. Montana has a new coaching staff, headed by Jerry Williams, former halfback of the Philadelphia Eagles, and is strictly reconstructing. Utah naturally always wants to be a contender for that No. 1 spot. We had one of our better freshman crops and didn't lose too many key men through graduation. The Utes will be dominated by sophomores, but two seniors who should be fine leaders for these lads are Lou Mele and Herb Nakken, our halfback pair. In the Rocky Mountain Confer- -ence, they tell me Montana State, which lost the 1954 title on an eligibility ruling, is super strong again. Idaho State and Western State Yogi Thinks About Something NEW YORK (SEA)—loei Berra was moaning about his hitting IB the Yankee dressing room. "The bat hasn't felt right In my hands all season.
