MX (ARK.) COUKTEK KBWf TUESDAY, TONE 17, 1951 Thomson Does it Again-Hits Grand Slammer to Tip Cards By JOE REICHLER AP Sport* WrlM» "Who said everything happens in Brooklyn? How about the Polo Grounds? Ever since Bobby Thomson cracked that pennant-winning home run in the 1951 playoff game, the weirdest things have been occurring in the home of the New York Giants. IXM>IC at what happend In th ¥ ——— —— • Polo Grounds last Sunday, for in- stanc. The Giants were soiling along enjoying an 11-0 lead over the St. Louis Cardinals when suddenly the roof] caved In on them Before they realized what had happened the Cards had won H-12. Yesterday, 24 hours later, the Cards were leading 7-4, when the Grants came to bat. T w o Bobby Thomson walks, a sinple, an out and boom Thomson practically duplicated his '51 feat, hitting a grand slam homer to beat the Rcdblrds, 8-7. Schmidt Loss That's not all. Look at this believe - It - or - not situation. Willard Schmidt, who tossed up that gopher ball to Bobby, made only one pitch—and he was charged with the defeat. The rookie right- hander had been summoned to relieve Will Werle. In contrast, the victory went to George Spencer, fourth Giant pitcher. He, too, made only one pitch. That was a double-play delivery to Del Ulce to end the top of the nlnlh. So we have the unprecedented situation In which two hurlers make one pitch each, one of which Is credited with the victory while the other Is charged with the defeat. Ironically, Thomson's game-winning homer came after the Giant third baseman had gone to bat 17 straight times without a hit. Eddie Yuhns, second St,Louis pitcher, set the stage when he walked Hank Thompson to start the last half ot the ninth. Pinch hitter George Wilson lined to Red Schoendicnst and Thompson moved to second when Schoendicnst throw wild to first In a double-play attempt, A Longr One Davcy Williams singled to setid Thompson to third. Lefty Werle relieved Yuhas and walked Whltey Lockman to load the bases. Schmidt, a fast-balling righthand- er, took over. Thomson's bell went clear over the left field roof just Inside the foul line. The .homer cut the Dodgers' first-place lend to three games, erased what looked like certain defeat for Sal Maglic dtis overshadowed homers by We Westrum, Al Dark and Williams for the Giants. In the only other game scheduled in the majors, the Phillies edged out the lasl-place Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-4, to "move into sixth place past the Boston Braves. A triple by Richie Ashburn and long fly by Granny Hamner broke a 4-4 tie in the seventh.
