Fnaros-Tribun* FiftMi Mantle Has Yanks Looking Like Champions Again Retain Half-Gome •" '—— —— — ^ Bulge Over Chisox Mickey on Three-Week Batting Binge of .486; Schantz Bests Pierce to Win Ninth Game or Season. Mickey Mantle couldn't put over the crusher on the Chicago White Sox all by himself, but his devastating .486 three - week batting splurge has' the New York Yankees looking like world champions again. Mantle staged a one - man riot for the season's largest crowd, 63,787, Sunday with six hits as the Yankees retained their half-game American League lead in their split with the White Sox. Mickey had four hits in the Yankees' 9-2 opening win and crashed a three- run homer in the ninth inning ot the nightcap but the Sox hung on to win, 4-3. The victory in the nightcap enabled the Sox to snap the Yanks' 10-game winning streak and salvage one game of the key four- game series. Mantle, who could become the majors first .400 hitter since Ted Williams in 1941, had three singles and a double as the Yankees pounded out 16 hits to hand Billy Pierce his fifth defeat in the opener. Bobby Shantz limited the! Sox to six hits to win his eighth I straight game and raise his season's mark to 9-1. Homer Victory Margin Dick Donovan shut out the Yankees with three hits for eight innings in the second game but then Mantle lowered the boom with his three-run homer in the Yesterday's Results American League (1st Game) Cleveland 400 025 021—14 19 1 Washington 002 000 000— 282 Wynn (9-8) and Brown.

(UP)—Kentucky stole' the thunder, from Indiana's high school basketball "All Stars"'with superior physical.fit- ness and shooting, but Hoosier coach Angus Nicoson vowed today his proteges will come back strong in Saturday's return match at Indianapolis.
