Wednesday Evening, Way 22, 193t Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Nineteea White Sox Finally Catch Up With Hitless Yanks Pierce Allows Four Hits in 3-1 Triumph Cleveland Indians Move Into Second Place Behind Chicago on Chico Carrasquel's Grand- Slam Homer. Those "Go, go" White Sox are going all right, with eight straight victories and a cozy two - game lead, but get a load of Casey Stengel, who is slowly going daffy because his world champion Yankees "ain't hitting a lick." That was the story Tuesday night as southpaw Billy Pierce limited the Yankees to four hits in American League beating them, 3-1, for his sixth victory and the White Sox' rsiftov re Chicago the Bronx Bombers this season. (Cleveland Major League Standings Pierce, who struck out eight batters to take over the American League lead with 45 .strikeouts, said it was "the best game" he pitched all year. "He pitched a fine game," Stengel conceded gloomily, "bul it doesn't matter who's pitching against us these days. We're not lilting any of "em." The Yankees have dropped three i of their last -four games and in I Cincinnati each of those defeats they scored Milwaukee only one run.

Jim Rivera singled home the first run, Bubba Phillips drove in the second with a squeeze bunt and Pierce singled borne the third. Reno Bertoia, Detroil's big surprise this year, singled home the winning run with two oul in the 16th inning in the Tigers' 2-1 victory over Orioles; Camilo Pascual pitched his first major league shutout and the first by a Washington pitcher Ihis year lo defeat Kansas City, 3-0, and Cleveland foeal Boston, 8-2, wilh Ihe aid of five Red Sox errors. In Ihe National League, soulh- paw Johnny Podres hurled Brooklyn to a 6-1 decision over Cincinnati; the Cubs nipped the Giants, •4-3; Milwaukee and Philadelphia played to a 1-1 tie before rain caused the game to be called after five-and-a-half innings, and the Pittsburgh - St. Louis game was washed oul by rain. Bertoia's 16th inning single off rollover Mike Fornieles scored Paul Foylack from .second with the run that broke up a deadlock which had existed since the sixlh. Ray Moore pilclied the firsl 15 innings for Ihe Orioles, allowed only hits, and accounted for Baltimore's only run witli his third homer of the season in the third inning. Pascual struck oul eight men ar.d gave up seven hils in beating the Athletics.

Firsts in these events would provide North with 20 poinls, just Haney's talking about the young man's poise. But, Pizarro, in his difficult English, says he's downright cold. The 20-year-old Puerto Rican, who dazzled the Sally League in sunny Florida last season, can't get used to the cold weather in this part of the country. Haney probably wouldn't be surprised to see. the young lefthander trudging to the bullpen in an overcoat.

Pettit Tries Comeback In Outfield HOLLYWOOD (UP) — One of the great comebacks in baseball was being fashioned today by a player who never quite made it to the top—Paul Peltit, the one-time $100,000 bonus~pitcher of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Paul was signed by the Pirates seven years ago as the most sen- s&tional pitching prospect ever developed in Southern California. Scouts raved about his fast ball, declaring he could throw it •through a brick wall. He had six no - hit games at Narbomre High School, three of them in a row and he averaged 18 strikeouts a game. But after a slow slarl Pettit had the misfortune in 1952 of having iliis arm go dead while farmed out to New Orleans. The Pirates uoved him from one club to another that year and the next in ;he hope his arm would come rack. It never did. Didn't Sit Back The youngster" might have sat back and collected $10.000 a year for the remaining years of the 10-year bonus period and call it quits. But Peltit in 1054, when he and Pittsburgh agreed his arm would never come back, asked if he could start at the bottom as an outfielder. He went to Salinas in the Class C California League and went to work. He played every day and drilled whenever be could at liis balling and fielding. And the averages show how well he did. He baited .324, drove in 103 runs and got 20 homers. The next step was lo !he Class AA Mexico Cily club where in Petlit was even more sensational, hilling .382. Bui !he critics said Hie altitude in Mexico Cily helped and they were cheap hits.
