A pitcher Who never before had won a game at Ebbets Field put a crimp into Brooklyn's bid to clinch the National leacue flag Saturday when Johnny Sain, curve - bulling Boston righthander, hurled the Braves to an 8-1 victory over the Dodgers. AS A RESILT the Brooks, now leading the St. Louis Cardinals by eight and a half games, must wait at least another day unless the Redbirds drop their game. The Dodgers need one more victory or a Cardinal de feat to make their World Series entry against the New York ; Yankees a mathematical ccn-lainty. Sain, who gained his 20th triumph for the second successive season., limited the disappointed Dodgers to six scattered sine Irs. The Brooks combined a base on balls, a sincle and a loni fly In the eighth Inning for their only run. The Braves, eyeing the run-nerup spot, thus gained a half game on the Cardinals and are now only a game and a half out cf second place. They have a three-game bulge on the New York Giants.

Tackle Ernie Lee set up the first Plainsman tally when he raced down the field to grab his own teams' kickoff after it had gone ten yards and carried it to the Omaha 26-yard marker.

A series of runs by Fred Aboud and a pass, Bill Green to Don Gorman, which Gorman fumbled but teammate Bob Mercurio recovered in the Wesleyan end zone, resulted in Omaha's only score. Alden Johnson, Plainsmen sub-back, was the big gun In the second Wesleyan drive which started en the Omaha 41.

In the closing minutes of the first half, the powerful Plainsmen 11 was again preparing to cash in for Touchdown No. 3 as Ev Poe and Ken White teamed up again to bring the ball down to the Omaha 8-yard line as the first half ended. THE SECOND half was a stalemate as both teams repeatedly fumbled and the Omaha Indians took to the air in an attempt to score. Big Ray Westover blocked an Omaha punt which went out of bounds on the Indians 21-yard-line, and the Plainsmen were on the inarch again as the fourth canto began. Wesleyan scored as Johnson bruised his way over from the Omaha two and scored with Ken White converting. THE HARD charging Wesleyan line was a big factor in the victory, with the punting of Poe and the running of Johnson and White supplying the offensive punch. Weslevan jw.u.

IN VIVID contrast, there will be some 38,000 highly partisan funs in the stands next Saturday when Ho McMillin herds his mighty Hoosiers onto the greensward. Tutor Brrnie, no doubt, expresses hope that the play of his wards equals that contrast. SAVE for spasmodic flashes of individual brilliance, the varsity seemed in a lethargy.

AFTER THE spirited B team had held tenaciously for ten minutes, Center Bobby Costello opened the scoring by rambling 76 yards after intercepting Joe Gutschow's pass.
