Bght Legansport, Indiana. Pharos-Tribune Speed Is Vital Asset for Sox NEW YORK (UP) — Al Lopez feels his first-place Chicago White Sox will "run" themselves right into the World Series. "This is the fastest club I've ever seen and I honestly think we can beat the Yankees," said the Chicago skipper. So far this season, the White Sox have lost all three games they played against the Yanks. They're here now to meet the world champs in a two - game series. "We just quit hitting at the time the Yankees beat us those three games in Chicago," Al added. "But there's nothing wrong with our ball club right now." Overall, the White Sox have won 18 of their 25 games, including their last 7 in a row, and they lead the American League race by two games. Lopez insists speed is the thing that did it. "We've won several games on our speed alone," he pointed out. "Fellows like Luis iparicio, Nellie Fox, Minnie Minoso, Jim Rivera, Bubba Phillips and Jim Landis can really get down that line. And Larry Doby is no slouch, oither. No one is slow on the club except the catcher (Sherm Lollar)." "Everyone gets tfie idea Ihe Yankees are an invincible club," he said. "Well, they're a fine club and they have a great manager but Ihey're not unbealable by any means. "The Yankees' pilching has been a lot better than I thought it would be, but their hilling hasn't been so good." Lopez has no complaints with his own pitching so far. "Jim Wilson has been doing a whale of a job for us," he said. "He's throwing more knucklers than he used to and he's got three shutouts already. There hasn't been anything wrong either with the pitching of Billy Pierce, Jack Harshman and Dick Donovan. They've all pilched good ball but I think they'll pitch even belter. And this Bill Fischer has turned out to be a surprisingly good kid." If the While Sox have any noticeable weakness, Lopez says, it's relief pitching. In any case, Ix>pcz disagrees with those who view the White Sox present firsl-placc estate as a temporary thing. Major League Standings WHY THE BOAT? BATTLE CREEK, Mich.
