P, The National League leading St. Louis Cardinals split a doubleheader with Giants on Saturday, taking the first game 11-1 and dropping the second 8-0. After Mel Ott's forces received the first game shellacking from the World Champs, it didn't seem possible they would be able to come back for anything. But behind the steady hurling of Cliff Melton they blanked Billy Southworth's highflying squad with ease. The Cards walloped three of Ott's flingers in that first encounter, starting with John Witig, for 14 blows including hom-;rs by Whitey Kurowski and Stan Musial Saturday's Games INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE" Baltimore 100 001 2004 9 4 Toronto 000 200 0103 6 2 Batteries: Swift and Meaarity; jar- lett.

August 15 9 Bill Zuber pitched his best game of the campaign Saturday when the American League - leading New York Yankees defeated Browns 2-1 at St. Louis. The quiet Iowan farmer held Luke Sewell's band to two hits as he scored his fourth victory in a row. Two misplays robbed Zuber of a shutout. Ken Sears heaved into centre field in trying to prevent a stolen base and Frankie Crossetti booted a twisting hopper. An unearned run resulted forcing the Yanks to an extra effort to overcome the flinging of Bob Mun-crief and George Caster. At Cleveland, the second-place Indians hammered out 17 hits, including seven doubles and one homer, to defeat Philadelphia Athletics 12-9 and sweep the five-game scries. Their winning streak now stands at seven games. At Boston the Braves went into fifth place as they made it four in n row by beating the third-place Chicago Cubs 3-2. At Detroit the visiting Washington i Senators staged a three-run rally in the ninth inning to defeat tigers 7-4 for an even break in the four-game series. and won as they pleased behind George Munger's adequate hurling. In the nightcap the circuit tail-enders struck back in earnest to gain an even break in the four-game series. Mickey Witek touched off three hits, which, added to four he made in the opener gave him seven for the afternoon. Across the East River in Brooklyn, the third-place Cincinnati Reds took both ends of a double-header from the Dodgers, the scores being 9-2 and 4-3. At Philadelphia, second-place Pittsburgh ended the seven-game victory string of Phillies with 8-2 and 2-1 triumps while at Chicago big Thornton Lee, White Sox southpaw, winless since July 4, snapped back into the victory column when he held the Boston Red Sox to three singles for a 2- victory.

"Strangler Lewis to meet Frank Judson, and pitting Larry Moquin against Al Dunlop, Toronto grap-pler, were the weekend announcements of Eddie Quinn, Forum's wrestling match-maker. These are the two more important preliminaries to the finish match, in which Bobby Managoff returns to Montreal to face Whipper Billy Watson, the Toronto matman, next Wednesday. Many believe that Watson, who has conquered McCready, Ka-tan. and Robert, in that order, has a first-rate chance to overthrow Managoff. Lewis, now n his "early fifties, many times claimant of the world's title, comes here at his own demand. He served as match-maker, and wrestler, for a time, in Detroit this spring, and one of his threats was to clean the "freaks" out of the game. His first, and last, essay in that direction, was in a match here with Andre Vadnais. the Quebec Angel, but this back-fired on Lewis, for the "freak", as he termed Vadnais pinned him. He comes here to redeem himself. Moquin, viewed by many as Yvon Roberts successor .tackles a burly customer in Dunlop, who turned from wrestling to refereeing, and back again to wrestling.

W) Howard Schultz, towering first baseman of the St Paul Club of the American Association, was purchased today by the Dodgers in exchange for Rube Melton, right-handed pitcher; infieldcr Joe Orengo and an undisclosed amount of money estimated at $40,000. This latest step in the reconstruction of the Dodgers was announced by President Branch Rickey before the start of the doubleheader with St. Louis Cardinals. "This is not an orlinary deal," commented Rickey. "It is a big deal involving a lot of money. Schultz is a fast runner and has power as a batter. He is also a strong thrower. After my recent visit to St Louis I went to St Paul and saw mm piay several games." Schultz, who has a batting average of .294, is expected to leave St Paul for New York tonight Leo Du-rocher, manager of the Dodgers, said he will put the new first baseman in the lineup as soon as he reports. Schultz. a right handed thrower and batter, is 21 years old, six feet 6Vi inches tall and weighs 20U pounds. He is single, but because of his height he has been classified 4-F in the draft. . Melton, who was purchased from the Phillies last winter for $30,000, was sent to St. Paul on option. Orengo. one of three players the Dodgers obtained from the Giants in the recent deal involving the now retired Dolph CamiJli, was released outright. ttOD v ' i 'Y Nine Wins Juvenile Crown; Hershon Stars Reuben Hershon's second no-hit . pitching effort of the 1943 season at Fletcher's Field yesterday carried Y.M.H.A.
