By CORNELIUS RVAN 4 (United Press Sports Writer) NEW YORK, Aug. 5. (UP) — Slan MiLsfal, who does everything In a thorough manner, was in the midst of a comeback today — and the Brooklyn Dodgers were worried. Mnsial, the National League's most valuable player last year, Is the bellwether of the St. Louis Cardinals. When Stan rings the bell, the Cardinals pick up the winnings, and of late the 2G-year- old first baseman has been playing a sort of basehit carillon. And the Dodgers, who might otherwise have the pennant In their pockets, find themselves with a seven-game lead which doesn't look too big with two months yet lo play. When Mnsial had a slump at the start of the season, it was just as throughgoing as Ills good hitting in 194G. He was bouncing around .150 in the averages, and the Cards were sputtcrln« in the dank confines of the cellar, a very embarrassed set of world champions. Hut In 'the past two weeks the Donora, Pa., lefty finally began to lit in the style to which he is ac- utstomed. and it couldn't have come at a better lime for St. Louis or a worse lime for Brooklyn. The Rcdhirds almost kept pace with the Brooks during a 13-game Dodger winning streak, and then alter Brooklyn defeated St. Louis in three stralgh 1 ., Musial's bat picked up the dropping Cards and led them to four ttraight since then, picking up the three games Brooklyn had gained. Now Has .424 Average For the past 13 games. Musial has 25 hits in 59 at bats, a .424 average, and that included five doubles and two homers, with eight runs batted in. Twice in the streak Stan has hit four-for-five. He belted a homer, a single and a double yesterday as St. Louis trimmed the Chicago Cubs, 8 to 1, but yielded honors to Marty Marion, who got three singles and four runs batted in. Howie I'ollet pitched the route despite 100-degrej heat, while the Cubs used five pitchers. Brooklyn held its lead" with a 10-inning 4 to 2 win over the Boston Braves achieved on Dixie Walker's home run after Pete Reiser doubled. Hugh Casey, who relieved Vic Lombardi In the sixth Inning as Boston tier! the game with two runs on three lilts, was the winner and Bill Voiselle was the loser. Cincinnati de'eatcd Pittsburgh, 7 to 4. witli a' IS-'hil attack that included home runs by Grady Hatton nnd Ed Lukon. Each batted in three runs. Lukon also had a double and Hatton a single. Hank Greenbcrg batted In two Pirate runs. The Phillies and Giants were idle. Only one American league gEimc was scheduled, and in that one the Philadelphia Athletics surprise:!
