DADE PARK RACES 26-Day Summer Meeting August 2 *o September 1 7 Races Dally—8 on Saturdays Rain or Shine Track located midway between Evansville, Ind., and Henderson, Ky. ^ DADE PARK JOCKEY CLUB Incorporated By RALPH RODEN AP Sports Writer A number of former National Leaguers have found Yankee Stadium to bo just what the doctor ordered. Supposedly washed up, they have not only prolonged theit playing days but have also jacked up their bank accounts. Johnny Schmitz is the latest. In hs first start for the Yanks Thursday, the one-time Chicago and Brooklyn lefthander pitched a 7-2 victory over Washington. The victory boosted the Yanks margin over the second place Cleveland Indians to three games. The Indians and St. Louis Browns were idle. The Red Sox pulled to witljin 4Vs games of the Yanks by sweeping a doubleheader from the Philadelphia Athletics, 5-4 in 13-innings and 4-2. The Chicago White Sox downed Detroit, 2-0, in 10 innings. In the National league, the second place New York Giants cut Brooklyn's lead to eight games by nipping the Dodgers, 4-3. In other games the Philadelphia Phils defeated the Boston Braves, 5-3; Cincinnati whipped Chicago, 4-1; and Pittsburgh conquered the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3, in 10 innings. Effective r.elief pitching by Maury McDermott and Ellis Kinder helped the Red Sox take two from the A's. McDermott allowed only four hits in 9 2/3 innings in winning the opener. Kinder halted a rally in the eighth inning of the nightcap that threatened to wipe out a 2-1 Boston lead. George Kell then clouted a t%vo-run homer in the Red Sox eighth to seal the verdict. Marv Grissom shaded Art Hout- tcman in a brilliant hurling duel at Detroit. Grissom ..also doubled in the 10th to launch the White Sox' winning rally that was climaxed by Nelly Fox' two-run triple. Al Corwin allowed the Dodgers only two hits in the last four innings to protect Sal Maglie's 12th victory. The Dodgers clipped Maglie and Hoyt Wiihelm for three runs in the si.xth and had two on and none out when Corwin entered and slammed the door. Wes Westrum provided the Giants with their margin of victory in the top of the sixth with a three-run double off Johnny Rutherford. Ralph Kiner blasted his 23rd and 24th homers to lead the Pirates tq victory over the Cards. Kiner tied the score with a two- run homer (n the eighth and won the game with a similar clout in the 10th off Joe Presko. Ken Raffensberger, Cincinnati lefthander held" the Cubs to five hits including a homer by Ransom Jackson. Ted Kluszewski homered in the third to break a 1-1 tie and the Reds were never headed. 0/ney Hires New Basketball Coach OLNEY, 111. — The Olney school of the North Efvpt High School Conference Friday announced signing a new head basketball coach, Edward F, Ware!
