SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1954 BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Surprising Giants Can Sweep Series Today Caruthersville Defeats Dexter Tigers Get Easy 33-0 Victory on Muddy Field CARUTHERSVILLE — The Caruthersville Tigers whipped Dexter's Bearcats on a muddy field here last night 33-0. Touchdowns were made by York Hughes, Dick McGill and "George Cook. With no scoring in the first quarter, Caruthersville scored three touchdowns in the second.

B Frasier Indians Given Little Chance of Comeback By C-AYLE TALBOT CLEVELAND (AP) — Fantastic as the thought might have seemed a few short days ago, the 1954 World Series of baseball could end here today, and it probably will. The Cleveland Indians, maulod throe straight times by the New York Giants, do not look like a ball club with any comeback in its system. The Giants manager. Leo Durocher, is not a kindly sort of diamond figure who might under the circumstances say shucks, fellows, let's let the poor guys win one for the sake of their wives and kid- die,s. Leo, who might be Winding up his career as a big league pilot with this one if you can believe everything you hear, would be happy to go out with the big flourish. If further proof were needed that the Giants were one of the most underrated teams in history going into the Series, yesterdays' easy G-2 victory before the Indians' home folks more than supplied it. For the first time in the three games played, it never looked like a contest. Never before had a dead .udience of 71,555 gathered in one stadium. Lopez's belatsd decision to spare Ai Rosen further punishment in the third game failed to improve matters. Hank Majeski, veteran replacement for the injured third baseman, not only failed to hit in four tries, but gained the signal distinction of hitting into the first double play of the series. Desperate Gamble It is a rather desperate gamble that Lopez is taking in sending Bob Lemon to the hill again today. but it also is a case of having almost no choice in the matter. Lemon is his best, and even though the righthander lost the opener to Dusty Rhodes' 10th inning .home run at the Polo Grounds, Lopez has to hope that his big game can give another such performance with only two daj's of rest. Durocher similarly had only about one guess to make, having run through his three mound standbys and used up his relief staff to some extent. Don Liddle, the small-size southpaw who went to the Giants as a sort, of throwaway in last winter's Johnny Antonelli-Bobby Thomson deal, might well be fiie man to close the lid on the Tribe. True, Liddle didn't exactly im- j belief that Durocher is determined press the public in his previous | to hang a 4-0 beating on the Amer"series appearance, -when he re-i ican Leaguers. lievcd Sal Maglie In the opener and served up the pitch that Vic Wertz used to chase Willie Mays nearly into the next county, but he can be a very cute performer at times. As some of the Giants had predicted all along, the American League champs had more trouble with Ruben Gomez's screwball and sharp cui-ye yesterday when they had experienced either with ivlag- Ife or Antonelli In their two previous stabs tit the Giants' staff. The Puerto Rlcan limited them to four hits. Garcia Easiest As also had been freely foreseen by Durocher's club, Mike Garcia proved much the easiest of Cleveland's famed big three to beat a tattoo on. Even Willie Mays, who had gone hitless against Lemon and Early Wynn, finally got into the act with a scoring single before Lopez gave up on the Big Bear with the score 4-0 against him. In all, against Garcia and his three successors, the Giants bashed a total of 10 hits. It was the first really Impressive hitting display Durocher's club had given, and It came at a time when the Indians were at their most helpless. Where Cleveland had left 26 runners stranded in 19 previous innings, they left only five this time. Don Mueller chipped in with a brace of singles for the Giants, and again it,was the amazing Dusty Rhodes who propelled a pinch single for the Giants second and third runs in their crushing third- inning fcttack on Garcia. It was Rhodes' third pinch blow in as many days and tied the World Series record for that specialty. It is too bad that time pears to be running out on Hoyt Wllhelm finally was given an opportunity to come in from the Giants' bullpen and serve up few of his butterfly balls, and j the circumstance strengthens MARKED MEN—Bob Hardy, left, pitches for Kentucky, Charley Boxold for Maryland.

(NEA) EiDorado Tips N.L.R.; Camden Surprises Texarkana, 14-13 By TOM nVGARD Of The Associated Press The El Dorado Wildcats are sitting on top of the Big Seven with two conference football victories tucked neatly under their belts. They walloped North Little Rock 18-7 last night to become the first team to win two Big Seven games. action because But they probably already are casting: a wary eye at Little Rock's Tigers .who roared into the Big Seven race by mutilating purichless Hot Springs 52-0. The two top-rated teams in the Big Seven don't meet until Oct. 22 at El Dorado. Zebras Lose Fort Smith got its first victory of the season, a 19-13 squeaker over Joplin, Mo. But other Big: Seven teams found the going rough. Greenville, Miss., knocked down Pine Bluff 21-0 and Camden nosed out Texarkana 1-1-13. El Dorado's victory over North Little Rock was the result of a well-compounded mixture of speed, power and clutch passing. The speed was provided by galloping halfbacks Bobby Bates and James Mooty. They both scored touchdowns. The power came from fullback Lama Di'innmond, who scored one touchdown, ,nd the work of Football Scores By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Little Rock 52.
