W Mti.n CHy OUb»-O»i«U«, M»«»n City. U. July 22, 1948 13 Tribe, Yanks Divide Pair Brooklyn Continues Surge Toward Top By JACK HANI> Associated Press Sports Writer Joe McCarthy finally has caught the New York Yankees, the club his Boston Red Sox consider "the team to beat" for the American league flag. By winning a day-night doubleheader from lowly Chicago while New York and Cleveland were splitting a .pair, the Red Sox Wednesday night moved into a 3rd place tie with the world champs. Meet Indians Next While the Yanks and Indians •wrestle on the Yankee stadium turf for 2 more days Boston has a golden chance to gain more ground in its continued series with the White Sox. Only 3A games back Thursday, Boston can be in a position to challenge for the lead Saturday when Lou Boudreau's Indians move into Fenway Park. McCarthy must have been encouraged, too, by the relief win of Tex Hughson, the tall Texan who has been lost to the team most of the season. Hughson came in to pitch the 9th inning of Wednesday night's game with Chicago, picking up the verdict when the Red Sox rallied for 3 runs in the last of the 9th to take a 10-9 edge. They had won the afternoon half by a 3-1 score for Joe Dobson's 12th success. Sam Mele kept the Sox in the night game with a 2 run homer in the 3rd after Bobby Doerr doubled TEX HUGHSON —Returns to Action MID-SUMMER SPORTS EVENT Just a few left!

Joe DiMaggio, Bill Johnson, Cliff Mapes and Phil Rizzuto homered for the Yanks, more than making up for a 2 run clout by Boudreau in the first inning. Ed Lopat scattered 6 hits for his 7th straight triumph. The Yanks had an 8-4 lead going into the 7th frame of the 2nd game but couldn't hold it. Joe Page was rapped lustily in a relief chore, leaving the game with the score tied and 2 men on base in the 8th. Karl Drews took over and walked Pinchhitter Wally Judnich to load them up. Then Jim Hegan delivered a grand slam for the ball game 12-8. Browns Drub A's Philadelphia ran into disaster at Shibe Park where the St. Louis Browns pounded out 21 hits to win 17-5. Joe Coleman, Charley Harris and Bob Savage were hit hard while Cliff Fannin coasted home on an 11 hitter. Washington's Walt Masterson got by with a 12 hitter as the Senators dumped Detroit, 6-1.

The Cards exploded 6 runs in the 7th to drive Ray Poat from the mound. The Phillies shaded Pittsburgh 3-2 in 10 innings despite the first major league homer by Elmer Riddle, veteran Pirate pitcher.
