Tuesday Evening, July 2, 1957. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribun* Elevt* Cincinnati Boy New Ace Of Cubs Mound Staff Rookie Drott Blanks Red legs on 4-Hitter Mickey Mantle Strokes Yankees Into 2-Game Lead in American With 22nd Homer; Five Unearned Runs Give Cards Win Over Braves. CHICAGO (UP)—Dick Drott, a crew-cut rookie right-hander who was pitching high school baseball three years ago, was developing today into 'he iron man and strikeout king of the Chicago Cubs' staff. The 21-year-old from Cincinnati has pitched more innings, 104, struck out more men, 86, and won more games, 7. than any other Cub hurler. "Gee," Drott said, "I guess things just all are breaking my way. My fast ball, especially, has - been real good." . Drott, who led the Pacific Coasl League in strikeouts last season with 184 for Los Angeles, wasn't even 21 until Monday. He marked his birthday by shutting out .the pennant - contending Cincinnati Eedlegs, 6-0, on a four-hitter. "They seem like a real good ball club," Drott said. "I guess it just was my day, that's all." The 6-foot, 1-inch Drott struck out eight Redlegs Monday. "Up until now I've been having some control trouble," Orott said. "But it didn't seem to bother me against Cincinnati. I only walked three men." Drolt admitled that when he gets far behind a batter he has a tendency to walk the man rather than let up and toss easy ones just to register a few strikes. Don Drysdale of the Dodgers cooled off the red-hot Giants on five hits as Junior Gilliam played a key role in Brooklyn's triumph with a first-inning homer and a brilliant performance afield. The loser was southpaw Johnny Antonelli, who gave up six hits before retiring for a pinch hitter in the eighth. Jordan Hurls Colt No-Hitter Wide 'margins were chalked up in Little League play, a ciose one was staged in Pony League and Mike Jordan hurled the season's first no-hit,. no-run game in the Colt loop in action on four fields yesterday. The National Bank Senators blanked the Farmers and Merchants Bank Giants 15-0 as Larry Parmeter hurled a 3-hitter in his first LLB pitching effort at Grain field. Parmeter also hit a homer and two singles and fanned six in the American division tilt. The UCT Yanks stayed unbeaten in the National division clash at Tower Park beating the Wolf Cubs 13-2 as Richard Schubach hit three doubles and Doug Poor got a triple. • Jim Conrad went the route for the Yanks and hit a double. • Nuxhall, Fowler (51, Sanchez (7) and Burgess.

"I feel I'd rather give the guy Charley Myers bested Stan his one base and fake my chances]Sanders in a hurling duel as the on starting clean with the next batter," Drolt said. "But, of course, If it was up to me I'd just as soon stay ahead of the batter all the time. It's walks that usually get me in all my trouble." By all this trouble, the youthful Drott referred to an earned run average of more than four, lie haa given up 48 earned runs in bis 104 innings. One stroke of Mickey Mantle's bat—literally a lightning shot in the dark — was all the Yankees needed to put some daylight between them and the .second-place White Sox. That stroke by Mantle with one cut in the 10th inning Monday right resulted in his 22itd homer of the season, a blow that produced a 3-2 victory over Baltimore and stretched the Yankees' lead to two games over Chicago. Mantle walloped his homer off ace reliever George Zuverink, who had entered the game after the ' Orioles had tied the score with a run In the last of the nlnlh. The Yankee slugger had the satisfaction of winning the game before 45,27(1 fdns, largest crowd over to witness a major league night (iame in Baltimore. Southpaw Whitcy Ford, making his first appearance since being sidelined with a sore shoulder, May 21, was credited with the victory in relief although Hob (Jrim had to bail him out when the Orioles threatened in the bottom of the 10th. Detroit toppled Uie White Sox, B-2; Kansas City Knapped an II- Xame losing streak with a 10-3 decision over Cleveland, and Washington nipped Boston, 5-4. The'St. I.x>u!s Cardinals cut Milwaukee's lead in the National League to a half-Kama with a 0-5 victory over the Braves; the Phillies defeated the Pirates, !>-4; Brooklyn licked the CianLs, 3-0, and the Cubs blanked Cincinnati, 0-0.
