Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Fifteen Cards Throw NL Race Into 5-Team Donnybrook 33 Points Separate First and Fifth Place Bobby Shantz and Mickey Mantle Lead Yankees to 3-2 Win Over White Sox Before 49,114 Fans in Chicago. : The St. Louis Cardinals' longest [ •winning streak in five years today! turned the National League race: into a five-team donnybrook thatj threatens to make last year's three-team affair look like a tea party'. The Cardinals, who hadn't won teven straight games since August, 1952, reached that tolal Tuesday night when they celebrated Stan Musial's record-lying 822nd consecutive game with "a 5-2 decision over the Philadelphia Phillies. That viclory combined with Pittsburgh's 8-1 win over Cincinnati and Milwaukee's 7-2 triumph over Brooklyn means there are a scant S3 percentage points separaling the first and fifth-place teams in the N.L. The world champion New York .Yankees quieled talk of an impending American League runaway with a 3-2 viclory over the Chicago White Sox that cut Ihe losers''first-place margin lo four games. The season's largest crowd 4U,114—saw the Yankees hand the White Sox their third straight defeat and their fourth in five games. Kedlegs Pull "Triple" Ruben Gomez pitched the New York Giants to 5-1 victory over the Chicagos Cubs in the other N. L. game while the Cleveland Indians beat the Boston Red Sox, 7-6, and the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Delroil Tigers, 4-1, in other A. L. games. Washington at Kansas City was rained out. Murry Dickson turned in a seven-hitter for his third victory behind a 15-hit St. Louis attack that included four hits by Al Dark and Ihree by Del Ennis. Hai Smith homered for the Cardinals in the second inning and slar'ed .a Ihree-run rally in the sixth with £ triple. Musiai, who tied Gus Suhr's N. L. endurance mark, contributed oniy a single. The Pirates were victimized by the first triple play of the N.L. season in the third inning but got but got five-hit pitching from Bob Purkey to win iheir Ihird straight- fame over a contender. Gene Baker and Bill Mazeroski had three hits each for the Pirates, who are "getting into the act" •with seven victories in their Jasl 11 games.
