Sain was purchased for $50,000 from the Boston Braves last year as "pennant insurance." OJtl Johnny paid off. winning two games for the world champions. The veteran curve bnll artlfio didn't figure highly In Yankee plans this. year. Many thought thaL Sain would draw his release before Ihe season started but John has fooled Ihcm all. Sftin was pressed Into action early when two members of the big thrcn. Ed l.oriat and Vic naschl hogged down because of ailments, won five Raines, the same jmber he posted for the Braves 18 decisions prior to his snlc to e Yanks. Only Allle Reynolds has on more. six. The old war horse, who broke to the majors with the Braves in 12 under his current hoss, Casey engel, pitched and helped bat the anks to n 6-4 triumph over the hicago While Sox yesterday. Bain's margin or victory would ave been greater but he has no ne to blame but himself for the ose call.

Sain, who won a game early in Ihe week with a plnch-hlt single, drove home the first two runs. Hank Bauer tripled home the third. Loose fielding by shortstop Chlco Carrasquel figured in the rally. Carrasquel permitted a pop fly to drop for a hit, was slow in picking it up and later made » delayed throw to the plate after taking a relay from the outfield. Cnrrasquel accounted for three of Chicago's seven hits, pounding out a single, double and homer. It was the . Yanks' seventh straight over Chicago and It moved them to wilhln 1 i^gnrnes of the front-running Cleveland Indians. Early Wynn soft-balled the Indians to a 5-0 four-hit verdict over the Boston Red Snx who startec the game In first place by three percentage points.

Ted Williams is Defended As reat, Generous Ballplayer By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK (AP)—The man who never had thought much of Ted Williams as 'winning" ball player observed in a needlin g tone that the Boston Red Sox were right ip there in the American League race now that the sphinx of Fenway Park had gone back nto the service. So what?" snapped the man ::i whom the barb hud sunk up to the shaft. "How do you know they wouldn't be six games out in front f Williams was still In Ihe lineup? A player who led the league in HS many things as he did couldn't mve been much of n drawback." 'All I know/' replied the heckler, "is that they didn't win with him in there. In my book he'll always be a player who dlrtn't produce in the clutch. When It was n tie in the lale Innings, Williams didn't hit. Not when I was watching him, anyway." "What you might overlook," declared the Williams fan, "is that in those games you're talking about Ted probably already had mode a couple of hits to tie the score. He had made the tie possible. Did you expect him to hit every time he came up? Apparently some people did." Recognizing that their man was off and running, Ihe sports writers around (be table leaned back and prepared to learn a few things about Williams. Me had puzzled them perhaps more than any other player over the years. Points Out Generosity ^Thn biggeM mistake you fellows ever will irmkc," resumed Ted's friend, "was your belief that he was tight with his money.

He is, honestly, the most liberal man I've ever known. "You didn't know about It—Ted .saw to It that yon didn't—but I will guarantee that he visited more hospitals and made more personal appearances at charitable and other sorts of gatherings than any other player. I didn't learn about this from Ted, but from fellows In Boston who are in position to know. "There is only one small fault I was ever able to find in Ted, I and maybe tbai's not a fault, either. He Is stubborn. When he makes up his mind about something, that's the way It's going to be and nobody is going to change his mind.

"U Comes Fast" Dean makes a swooping gesture with his hand when trying to de scribe Rush's phantom ball. 'H romes In fast anrt hopping like," he appraised. "It ain't r.oth- in' to be a fast thrower in a straight line. But when that fast ball is hoppln' and jumpin', then, buddy, you've got some thing.

Tills ought to show them that ' didn't win the first time by a ucky punch," said Walcott. "I hope this settles the matter." While the once poverty-stricken Negro accepted congratulations from a mob of well wisherSj Manager Felix Bncchicchlo began casting lines to net a golden caich tor his amazing oldtimer. Promoter Jim Norrls of the International Boxitig Club offered Walcott the choice of either Marciano, the Brockton r Mass., belter, or Matthews, the sensational Seattle contender, for another championship show in September. This seemed to Indicate that the propossd Mama no-Matthews match for New York in July won't come off unless Walcott turns down a mo-tch right ofT with either. Marciano and Matthews are tremendous attractions and both Norris and Bocchicchio believe that a bout with either would bring In over a million dollars, television included. Eye for, T>ough Bocchicchio, however, declined to commit himself immediately. "We'll fight anyone anywhere we can get the most money," he said. "Up to now we haven't mad* a dime.
