Pharos-Tribune mn» Redlegs Lead By 2 Games In Frantic ML Race Brooklyn Snatches Second From Phils Error and Bad Bounce Helps Cincinnati Score Twic« in Eleventh Inning; White Sox and Yankees Both Victorious. Birdie Tebbetts likes to kill 'em with .kindness, so first he says the. Phillies can "go all the way" and then his Cincinnati Redlegs promptly go out and beat Philadelphia to move two games ahead again in the frantic National League pennant race. That's th« way K happened Wednesday night. . Prior to the game, Tebbetts, that master psychologist, praised the Phillies to the skies, pointing out they might even win it all, •specially now that they have a smoothie such -as Chico Fernandez at shortstop. So what happens? Fernandez commits an llth - inning error that helps the Redlegs to a 4-2 victory. Gus Bell started the llth by being safe on Fernandez' bobble. With one out, pinch hitter Jerry Lynch lined an apparent single to for the Yankees Yogi Berra suf- nicked for homers by Jim Hegan and Chico Carrasquel. The victory proved costly when catcher fered an apparent fractured nose during the second inning. Al Kaline's double followed by Bill Tuttle's single gave the Tigers their extra-inning win over the Senators. . Charley Maxwell homered in the eighth to give Detroit starter Frank Lary a 2-1 lead but Washington tied the score In the ninth. Paul Foytack was the winner and Camilo Pascual the loser. Eddie Yost hom- ered for Washington.

"When I was a college boy the 4-minute mile was as unlikely as flying to the moon," said Dr. Berger, who added that one stimulant in particular—amphetamine—was widely used in athletics.
