MONDAY, JUNE 2!), 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Braves' Sad Plight: Bats Throttled Slump Serious; Pitchers Just Throwing Jl By CHRIS EDMONDS MILWAUKEE (AP) — When the hitters don't hit and the pitchers just become throwers, you start losing the games you were winning before. That's the plight of the Milwaukee Braves, who came home from a roadtrip 13 days ago in a virtual tie lor the National League lead and took off today for a short junket with a seven-game losing streak and a second place ranking. The latest touch was yesterday's 11-1 pasting by Brooklyn, in which five Milwaukee hurlers were clouted for 18 hits, eight for extra bases. Why should a team which set the Eastern end of the league on its ears a fortnight ago suddenly go into a tallspin? "We stopped hitting." says Manager Charlie Grimm. "And we stopped getting the kind of pitching we had earlier. That's all. "But don't give up on these The kids are starting to press a ^little. J think, but I'll stick with 'em Fiall the way. We'll be back and don't forget it." Miserlrt Hil With Giants The miseries hit Milwaukee with arrival ,of the New York Giants, got worse when the ten-tailend Pitte- burgh Pirates moved in and stayed that way with Brooklyn on hand. The batting slumps of most of the regulars were far from trival. Young Eddie Mathews, the slugging third baseman, dropped 29 points (torn 317 to .288; Del Crandall fell off 24 points, from .320 to .296. and Joe Adcock 21, down to .265, The fact the pitching platoon suddenly turned into a squad of throwers shows in the complete game department. Only three pitchers went the route during the 13- game home tour. Young Football Player Wins Over100-to-1 Medical Odds NEWPORT NEWS, Va.

The son of Darnley was less than $200 short of the goal when the 1953 campaign opened and got over the hump in his first Yonkers Kaceway outing. Lopez Not Surprised At Yankee Collapse By JACK HAND NEW YORK (AP) — Manager Al Lopez acted like a man who had expected his Cleveland Indians to sweep three from the slumping New York Yankees, he wasn't overly excited. It was as though it happened all the time. One week ago his Tribe was struggling, im games back. People were talking about a split season and a Shaughnessy playoff. Now they were only six games away and coming strong! "The end Is too far away,' 'he said in the Clubhouse after Early Wynn's three-hitter sank the yanks with their seventh straight defeat. "We've got close to 90 games to go to be exact, 88 games. This should be a great help to us but we still have a long way to go. No Super Club "Like I said when they were winning those 18 straight, they aren't any super club. They were hotter than a pistol, ow their batter? are not getting the hits and their field- ng is not as good as it wae. But I don't see any signs of any crackup." but Indians once were 1% back came back in the stretch. Over in the Yankee clubnouse, Manager Casey Stengel didn't have much to say. "We're not hitting, pitching and fielding," he commented. Lopez recalled that last year his Buffalo Aids Spartom EAST LANSING, Mich. (g\ — The city of Buffalo, N.
