Larsen hurled a brilliant four- hitter to complete the doubleheader sweep and gain his first victory as a starter since his historic World Series perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers. To cap the day, Roy Sievers •walloped a two-run 10th - inning homer to give the Washington Senators an 11-9 victory that knocked the Chicago White Sox out of a share of first place with •the Yankees. The White Sox had rallied for four runs in the ninth inning to win the opener, 7-6.

Logan Upsets Muncie, 4-2 In CIBL Feature Locals Score Second Victory Of Season at Expense of League Leaders The'last place Logansport FOP ball club pulled a king-sized upset Sunday afternoon at Riverside park by defeating the leading Muncie Marhoefers, 4 to 2, in a Central Indiana Booster League feature. A three-run uprising in the fourth inning erased a 2 to 1 Muncie advantage and gave Billy Jones the batting support he needed to turn in a neat seven-hit victory. Dave Loner led off with a single and advanced to second on a walk to Don Snyder. Billy Joe Bell, Jones and Fred Schue followed with consecutive hits to account lor the. three tallies. •Logansport scored its first run in the opening frame on Schue's single, a passed ball and a double by Link Rivers. Muncie's scoring was concentrated in the third inning. A single by Dick Campbell, an error, wild pitch and a triple by Sanburn did the damage. The Marhoefers collected three hits in their half of the first but failed to score. One base runner was picked off first and another attempting to advance to third base on a single. 'Schue and Rivers paced Logansport's 11-hit offensive with three safties, while Bell contributed two.
