The Red Sox Sunday climaxed sensational 7 week surge from dismal 7th to first place—giving Boston teams the leadership in both major leagues. 12th Straight Win The Sox wrested the No. 1 berth rom the Philadelphia Athletics by defeating the Cleveland Indians 3-0 for their 12th straight victory. Meanwhile, the Athletics divided a doubleheader with the Detroit Tigers. The ride from 10 games back o the top was reminiscent of George Stallings' miracle Braves of 34 years ago who jumped from the cellar on July 4 to capture the National league flag. On June 2, the Red Sox were wallowing in 7th place, having won only 15 games while losing 24. The Cleveland Indians were Probable Pitchers AMERICAN LEAGUE (No games scheduled.)

The Indians have skidded to 3rd place, a game and a half behind. Dobsou Wins 13th Joe Dobson, veteran curveball- ing righthander, gained the honor of pitching the Sox into first place. He scattered 6 hits to chalk up his 13th triumph. Boston wasted little time in clinching the windup of the 3 game series with the Tribe, scoring twice against Steve Gromek in the first Japing on a double by Johnny Pesky, a walk to Ted Williams and a triple by Bobby Doerr to deep right center. The Red Sox scored their final run in the 7th when Dom DiMaggio clouted homcrun off Satchel Paige. Fred Hutchinson eased the A's out of the lead by pitching the Tigers to a 2nd game 10-2 triumph over Philadelphia and a split in their doubleheader. Joe Coleman had blanked the Tigers 4-0 with 7 hits in the opener. DiMagrgio Leads Way Joe DiMaggio cracked out 2 homeruns, a double and 3 single:, in 7 times at bat to lead the New York Yankees to a double triumph over the Chicago White Sox 5-3 and 7-3. The sweep of the twin bill advanced the 4th place Yankees to within 2 percentage points of the Indians. Both of Joe's homers, his 22nd and 23rd, came in the 2nd game. Ed Lopat gained his 7th straight victory in the opener and Vic Raschi won hi 12th against 4 defeats in the nightcap. Washington and the St. Louis Browns divided a doubleheader, the Senators winning the first game 5-1 and the Browns taking the 2nd 6-4 in 11 innings. Rae Scarborough scattered 7 hits and drove in 3 runs with a bases loaded double to gain his 8th triumph in the opener. The pace setting Boston Braver retained their 5 game margin in the National league by gaining a split in their twin bill with the Cardinals in St. Louis. The Cards had come from behind with 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th to win the opener 6-5. They also led 6-4 after 8 innings of the nightcap but 9th inning homeruns by Bob Elliott and Jeff Heath, the former with 2 on, gave the Braves an 8-6 victory. Bucs, Dodgrers Split Danny Murtaugh's grand slam homerun. in the 8th inning gave the Pittsburgh Pirates a 7-4 2nd game victory and a split in their doubleheader with the 2nd place Brooklyn Dodgers. The Brook? won the opener 6-5, coming up with 4 runs in the 8th and staving off a Pirate rally in the 9th Jackie Robinson's steal of home provided the deciding tally. Cincinnati slugged out a pair of decisions over the Philadelphi Phils 11-8 and 9-2 to advance within a game and a half of the 6th place Phils. Hank Sauer slammed his 27th homevun in the opener to tie Ralph Kiner of Pittsburgh for the league lead. The Chicago Cubs spotted the New York Giants a 3-0 lead then came from behind to defeat Leo Durocher's men 6-3. Eddie Waitkus' inside the park homcrun with 2 on was the telling blow.

TEYVEE DAY —Good Stickwork hits in 8 official trips to the plate getting 2 for 3 against Rockwell and 4 for 5 against Spencer. Mully Fredricks hurled the victory over Rockwell as he allowed only 5 hits. The losers got to him for a marker in the first frame on a walk and 2 singles. Howard Koppen got a bingle in the 2nd inning for Rockwell and from there on until the 9th frame, not a Rockwell batter reached first base. He retired 19 batters in a row during the stretch. But in the top of the 9th, Jack Fitzgerald hit a clean homer to leftfield for the only other score by the losors. Mason City knotted the score in the first frame on singles and n walk and went ahead in the 4th on Day's walk a stolen base and a 2-base error by Jack Fitzgerald who let the fumbled peg go past him as Day scooted all the way home. 9 Rockwell Errors In the 6th, Day got a single and Koppen let it get past him as Day circled the bases to give Mason City a 3-1 lead. Bob Eckert, who pitched a nice 7-hit game for the losers, had poor support afield as Rockwell committed 9 errors. Five of them came in the 7th inning as the Legionnaires scored 3 more runs and 3 bingles and a couple more misplays let the winners complete their scoring with a pnii of runs in the 9th. After absorbing 29-0 and 11-1 defeats in their last 2 outings against Spencer, the Legionnaires came back to play good ball Sunday as they outhit Spencer 14-12 in the game but could score only 4 runs as 11 runners were left stranded.

Rally Halted But Al DiMarco, who hurled all the way for the Legionnaires, kept the visiting club in check the rest of the way while Jim Loepp, Spencer righthander, had to have relief in the 9th to quell a Mason City rally. In the 9th frame, Blanchard was safe on an error. Singles by Lu Diaz, Day and Jim H o g u e accounted for a run and left the sacks loaded with only one out. Lefthander Rudy Rauh then went to the hill and fanned Mike Lloyd and forced Ray Henely to ground out to save the game. 46,000 to Witness Title Bout Between Lesnevich, Mills London, (U.P.)—More than 46,000 fans—largest crowd to attend a fight anywhere in 7 years—was reportedly assured for Monday's return battle between Champion Gus Lesnevich and Freddie Mills for the world light heavyweight crown. Many Americans, here for the Olympic games, planned to be in that crowd at White City stadium as 34-year-old Lesnevich of Cliffside, N. J., made his 5th defense of the title. Interest in the bout was torrid, and late betting support for Mills of England had hammered the betting price down Monday from 3-1 to 2-1, favoring Lesnevich. That surpise backing for Mills was caused by reports that Lesnevich was weakening himself in paring down to the 175-pound limit. Some bookmakers said the price might shorten to 8-5 by fighl time. English sports writers and fan considered Monday's bout one of the most important ever staged ir the British Isles. They appreciated that Lesnevich was the No. 1 man in world-boxing since the professed retirement of Heavyweigh Champion Joe Louis. And they realized that Mills, despite his defeat 2 years ago b: Lesnevich, now had a chance no only to capture the light heavy weight crown but also to establish Crane, Brown Get Saiiboating Sweeps at Clear Lake Clear Lake—Chuck Crane in C :Iass and Dick Brown in X class vere triple winners in sailboating competition here over the weekend.
