Braves Boost Lead to 8 Games Pat Seerey Gets 4 Homers as White Sox Beat A's 12-11 By CARL, LUNDQUIST New York, (U.R)—They say travel is broadening and the way the Boston Braves are broadening their first place lead by winning games on road trips it must be so. Since the Braves, now 8 full games in first place in the National league race, "hit the road" on their 3rd western invasion of the year they have won 5 out of 6 games, climaxing the junket with a double embarrassment of the Pirates at Pittsburgh, 10-2 and 3-1 Sunday. Nelson Potter won his first National league triumph in the opener, being abetted by a 5- TUII first inning in which Jeff Probable Pitchers AMERICAN LEAGUE Cleveland (Lemon 13-7) at W a s h i n gton (Thompson 2-2)— night.

St. Louis (Sanford 7-9) at Boston (Parnell 5-5)—night. NATIONAL LEAGUE Boston (Sain 12-6) at Pittsburgh (Ostermueller 5-2)—night. New York (Jansen 10-5) at Cincinnati (Peterson 2-8). Philadelphia (Leonard 8-8) at Chicago (Rush 2-6). Brooklyn (Barney 5-5) at St. Louis (Breechen 9-4). Heath hit a grand slam homer off Elmer Riddle who took his 3rd straight beating. In the 2nd game, Rookie Vernon Bickford registered his 6th victory, keeping Pittsburgh scoreless until Ralph Kiner hit his 100th homer in the 9th in less than 3 full major league seasons. It was his 26th of the year. Alvin Dark and Bob Elliott hit Boston homers. Tribe Increases Lead Cleveland's American league leaders also won a pair, 2-1 and 6-4 in 12 innings at Washington TAT SEEREY —Has Field Day _ _ to go li games in front. In th 2nd game Bob Feller was batted out for tlie 2nd time in -3 days But Dale Mitchell's triple and ? long fly provided the winning run for Relief Hurler Sam Zoldak. Gene Bearden won his 9th game in the opener in which Jim Hegan tripled home with the winning Seerey, the guy nobody wanted because he got too fat, had his greatest day in baseball when he hit 4 homers in an 11-inning, 12-11 White Sox victory over the Athletics at Philadelphia, the final smash winning the game. It marked the first time in 12 years and the 3rd time in this century that a player had hit 4 homers in a game. The others to do so were Chuck Klein of the Phils in a 10-inning game in 1936 and Lou ning 2nd game, winning 6-1 as Bill McCahan scored his first vic- ory. Bosox Continue Climb The 4th place Red Sox, just as hot as their fellow townsmen the Braves, came from behind in both games to defeat the Browns, 12-5 and 7-6 at Boston. Two 6-run ral- ies, the first sparked by Birdie Tebbetts' 3-run homer gave Bos. the opener after St. Louis took a 4-0 lead. The Browns also got off in front, 4-0 in the nightcap but Boston gradually reduced the margin and went ahead to stay with 4 runs in the 4th, 3 on Dom DiMaggio's triple. Hal Newhouser became the top winner in the majors when he pitched 6-hit ball to score his 14th victory and his 3rd over the Yankees 5-3 after which New York took the nightcap 12-5 with 15 hits in 6 innings. The game was called after the Tiger 7th because o£. darkness and general boredom, Pitcher Tommy Byrne having walked 10 batters in winning his 2nd game. Hoot Evers' grand slam homer, g a v e Newhouser his margin. Yogi Berra hit a Yankee homer in the nightcap. The 3 new National league managers, Burt Shotton of Brooklyn, Leo Durocher of New York, and Dusty Cooke of the Phils, proved themselves to be fine between games "orators" as they pepped their clubs up to win 2nd games after they lost their open- Major League STANDINGS AMERICAN LEAGUE W.

Juniors Get by Waterloo 1-0 3-Hit Game by VerHelst Edgington, Berger Combine for Run By JIM VANHEEL Sports Editor The Mason City Junior Legion baseball team moved* a step closer to a berth in the 4-team state tournament field Sunday afternoon at Roosevelt field by defeating Waterloo 1-0 before 900 fans in a game which went 2 extra innings. The game was the first_of a best 2 out of 3 series in the inter-district playoffs. The next game is to be played at Waterloo Thursday afternoon with the 3rd site yet to be determined in case Waterloo should square the series. 3-Hit Ball Game Glen Edgington, a reserve on Coach Elmer Starr's strong club, provided part of the winning punch in the last of the 8th. inning to go with a well pitched 3- hit ball game by big Jim Ver- Helst. VerHelst hurled 9 scoreless innings against Waterloo and was due to lead off the Mason City half of the 9th frame at the plate. Under an agreement between Junior Legion baseball and the Iowa High School Athletic association, a pitcher is limited to 9 innings on the mound so VerHelst was lifted from the game and Edgington sent in as a pinch hitter; Berger Drives in Run Harold Neighbors, who had given up only 5 hits for Waterloo, saw his first pitch to Edgington slammed to left centerfield for a triple. Dick Colloton then grounded out. Third Baseman Bud Berger, who had 2 previous singles at the plate, then accounted for the only run of the game as he planted a clean single to leftfield to score Edgington. The victory was the 4th Mason City has scored over Waterloo this season. Previous wins were by 12-2, 9-0 and 8-7 scores, the 8-7 game also being a 9-inning extra stanza affair. The defeat was the 5th for Waterloo in 18 games this season and marked the 22nd win for Mason City as against 3 defeats. The win was also the 8th straight chalked up by Coach Elmer Starr's classy club. 13 Batters Fanned VerHelst was in command all the way although Waterloo got one runner as far as 3rd base. That came in the 9th inning as the result of a walk and an error. He had 13 strikeouts in the game while Neighbors registered 9 in the tight affair. Inability of Mason City to hit in the clinch sent the game into extra innings. Mason City had a total of 12 runners stranded in the game. In the 5th and 7th frames the local club had the sacks loaded with 2 out but Leo Chimbidis fanned both times to end the threat. The only extra base hit off Ver- Helst was made by Jack Bender in the 8th inning when he stretched a pop ball into short leftfield intc a double.

There was no score in the Saturday game until the last of the 4th when DiMarco exploded his wallop, the first solid hit off Hipschen.

Bracken, Harrer Post 72s in City Golf Qualifications Qualifications for the city golf tournament began at the Mason City Country club Sunday as 63 golfers posted scores for the match play meet which will begin next Sunday. This total is expected to be increased considerably as qualifying rounds may be posted up to Friday evening. There were indications that Lyle Humphrey, defending champion and a 6-time winner of the city event, may have rugged competition in hi'o bid to grab a 7th title. Don Bracken, a pre-war ace in local golfing circles, and Jerry Harrer, runnerup in last year's meet, both posted one over par 72s Sunday. Both golfers were even par for the first G end postc-d one over par 36s on the 2nd 9. Marv Wolter was next in line among the low scores posted Sunday with a 76. Bob Goeders registered a 77. Mickey Cross and Jim Krafft both had 78s and Willis Patton and Ned Brandt both had 79s for other low scores turned in at the clubhouse. Humphrey, as defending champ, will not have to qualify and will of memories for Spectator George Earnshaw. The $500 will be handed Seerey by Charley Ziehler, a former independent baseball promoter and now a Philadelphia battery manufacturer. Ziehler some time ago inserted a notice in the official program at the Philadelphia Athletics' Shibe park—stating that he would pay $300 to the first player on any team to hit 3 homers in one game and $500 for 4 in a single contest. The notice was carried in the program Sunday, but offering only the $300 for 3 bonus. However, after Seerey blasted a quartet of 4 baggers off 3 A's pitchers in the first game of Sunday's twin bill, Ziehler said he planned to live up to the terms of his original offer—$500 for 4 circuit blows. The memories running through the mind of George Earnshaw, former A's pitcher, as he watched Seerey's feat, took the big right- hander back to July 3, 1932. Connie Mack's Athletics were playing the New York Yankees that day and one of the biggest guns in the Yankees' lineup was First Baseman Lou Gehrig. Gehrig hit 3 homers in 3 consecutive times at bat against Earnshaw and after homer No. 3, dishing up 6 walks and 3 wild pitches. Sunday's hit parade was unequally divided, 21 for Mason City and 12 for Dubuque.
