He drove in seven of the New York runs against Detroit, an all-time hic-h for hitting pitchers. The previous best was six. Greeted with the bases londed on each of his first three trips to the plate, Raschi delivered two runners in the second inning- with a single, three in the third with a double and two more in the fourth with another single. On his fourlh trip, with nobody on base, he grounded out.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Managers Charlie Grimm of the Milwaukee and Chuck Dresscn of the Brooklyn Dodgers were warned yesterday by National League President Warren Giles that umpires in Ihe current'series will order removal of any pitcher they think is throwing bean balls. Giles' special directive, issued after a near - tight in Monday night's game, is move severe than the baseball rule book, which says the umpire is to warn a pitcher the first time, ordering his ouster only after a second offense. Giles told both managers and Jocko Conlan, head of the umpire crew working 1 the Dodgers-Braves scr- ies, that in questionable situations the batter will get the benefit of the doubt and the pitcher will be presumed to he, throwing n duster. Grim in, asked about Giles' directive, said, "It's the usual order after a fracas like the one lust night. I put It on the bulletin board where, nil the players will .see it." Dre.ssen M\id, "It won't afSeet me because I never tell my pitchers Lo thro\v dusters'' Fracas Last Night Tlrnvos and Dodgers surged out of the dugouts Monday night as Milwaukee pitcher Lew Burden e and Dodger catcher Roy Cainpan- ella squared off after Burden e .struck Campanula out. The husky Negro backstop had to hit the din. twice to avoid pitched balls, and he said Burdette insulted his race. Burdeltc denied it and said Campanella did the name calling. Walter O'Malley, president of the Brooklyn club, commented here yesterday that Giles' directive is a step toward what be thinks is a needed change in baseball vules. "If the. umpire thinks a pitcher is sufficiently wild to endanger the batter or the caU'her or umpire," he said, "lie should have the' power (,o have, that pitcher rmmved. without ROing into Uie miutev til intent." The rule requlrintr the umpire to rule on the pitcher's iiUciU Is too difficult to enforce, O'Malley asserted. "Intent is a very serious Alb'ino Deer Reported ROL'NDIT. Mont.
