PAGE EIGHT BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS . JUNE 25. 1953 Yankees Forgot Their Name Against Chisox By BEN PHLEGAB AP Sports Writer After watching the New York Yankees blow two in a row to the hustling Chicago White Sox about the only conclusion you can come to is that somehow the players put on t h e wrong uniforms. Certainly the outfit that wore the big "NY" on their suits the past two clays bears no resemblance to a world championship club. And the White Sox look every inch pennant contenders instead of third-place talent.

They've succeeded in making the New Yorkers beat themselves. In Tuesday nlght'6 11-3 rout the Yanks committed four errors, three of them in a single Inning. Both were high marks for the year. • Yesterday it was faulty pitching. Starter Jim McDonald found the plate only once in 13 pitches and was sent to the showers in the first inning with the bases loaded and nobody out. Chicago cashed all three of those runners, plus two more in the inning, and coasted to an 8-4 victory. So tile Sox have proved that Pet.

The New Yorkers might be more ivorrietj 11 somebody besides their Indian cousins from Cleveland were coming to visit this week end. Cleveland has lost seven straight to New York and is the inly team in the league that hasn't beaten the Yankees at least once. The Indians came out on top in a 31-hit slugfest at Boston yester- lay, whipping the Red Sox. 13-9. it. Louis scored five runs in the ast two innings to edge Washing- on, 7-6 and Detroit won Its third traight, 6-3, over Philadelphia. The suddenly docile Milwaukee Jvaves lost their third In a row, 0-1, to Pittsburgh, but maintained heir three-game league lead over le Brooklyn Dodgers. The lodgers were beaten, 7-4, by Cin- innatl when Gus ' Bell homered with two on in the last of the ninth. New York whipped St. Louis, 3-0, as Sal Maglle scattered eight hits and Philadelphia won its 10th game of the season from Chicago, 8-2. Browns Win On Homers Jim Hegan, Dale Mitchell and Bob Avila each contributed three safeties to the 17-hlt Cleveland attack. Mitchell drove In four runs as did Del Wilbur and Tom Umphlett of the Red Sox. Wilbur homered with two on In the seventh for Boston. Home runs by Roy Sicvers and Dick Kokos enabled the Brownies to make it two straight over Washington. The Tigers Jumped on Charlie Bishop for four runs in the first inning, Including a home run by Stevn Souchock. Shortstop Harvey Kuenn contributed three straight hits, one a home run, for Detroit. Ned Carver went all the way for his sixth victory He's lost six. The slumping Braves managed only seven hits, six of them singles, against the right-handed slants of Roy Face, pint-sized rookie curveballer who posted his third victory without a loss for Pittsburgh. The Pirates climbed out of last place with a 15-hit attack against four Milwaukee pitchers. Bell's blast for Cincinnati climaxed a long uphill struggle after Brooklyn had scored four times in the first inning on home runs by Wayne Belnrdi and Gil Hodges. Fine pitching by Maglie halted the Cardinals for only the third time In their last 15 starts. Legion Topples Kiwanis from Top Rung The surging American Legion toppled the Kiwanis Club from the Little League undefeated ranks and slipped into a second place tie with an exciting 5-S victory yesterday. Coach ott Mulllns' crew needed | corner. Dorrls promptly singled him only an hour and five minutes to : in. knock over the Klwanians. but had Plunkett opened the third with to quench a desperate six Inning uprising with the bases clogged and three runs In the fold. Don? Don-is earned the distinction of throttling the Kiwanis Club (or the first time this season, although he was not around at the finish. Onus established a new league record by retiring the first 12 batters to face him, eight by strikeouts, and had a no-hitter Working until Don Tinker shattered the dream with an Infield hit In the fifth. The Kiwanis finally solved him in the sixth when they clubbed three hits, including a tremendous home run by Jimmy Bruce with two aboard. Young Don Starlings was tagsed hard and often while absorbing his first defeat after three straight wins. He surrendered nine hits in all, including doubles by Johnny Plunkett, Jerry (Monk) Rounsavali, and Glynn Dale Howard, who also poled a three bagger. The small righthander fanned seven and had his usual good control. It marked the third successive game in which he has not issued a base on balls. Howard Starts It It was Howard, the brilliant left- j bander back on first, who started j the ball to rolling for the Legion- I naires after a scoreless, three-up- j and three dcwn, for both in the * first. He tripled to the left field | Plunkett opened a rousing double and the Letfions were off again. Bill Boyd was a strikeouter but Rounsavali dropped a hit Into right center and scampered to second when the ball took an awkward bounce, as Plunkett scored. Howard smacked a two bag- ger to left, registering his peppery little catcher. The Legion picked up another In the fourth on singles by Billy Hatch and Plunkett, and an Infield out. Their last was a gift. Rounsavail was safe when Don Tinker left the mitigate up on his slow grounder. "Monk" advanced on a passed ball and sprinted all the way from second when erry Palsgrove missed up Dorris' roller. The Kiwanis were unable to touch Dorris with anything much better than a loud foul until Hurley White, who fielded brilliantly at short for the winners, threw high to first after making a good stop of Bruce's high hopper. Dorrle got Palsgrove and J. L. Austin on strikes but Tinker beat out a hit to deep short, White again coming up with a fine stop to save a run.. Jimmy Marshall strolled for .Dorris' first walk, but "Dusty" Rhoads was fanned, TJprisinf Checked Doug got himself into what proved to be a hornet's nest by walking Nathaniel Austin to open the top half of the sixth. Bobby Jacques forced Nathan, but Stallings sent "Prenchy" to third with a double. Bruce powdered a Jour bagger between left and centerfield and romped home behind his two base runners. When Palsgrove cracked one to center for a base Coach Mullins decided Worris had enough and called in Howard. Olpnn Dale Indicated he was going to make short work of It as he slipped three fast pitches by J. L. Austin. But Tinker kept the skein alive with a Texas Leaguer, sending Palsgrove to third. He took second on the throw to the plate. The Legion fans became more alarmed when Marshall looked over {our wide ones to fill the bases. It was then up to Rhoades. But Dusty choked the bid by popping to Boyd. The box score: KIWANIS CIAJB AB H N Austin, rf 2 Jacques, ss 3 Stallihgs, p 3 Bruce, Ib Palsgrove, 2b J. L.
