Memphis Negro Pounded As Pirates Whip Dodgers 76 fo 3 IS liYAN (United I'ress S|iinl s \Vrltrr NRW YORK. Aug. 27. U)P, _ Individual baseball stuis linally had a chance for some attention today after a season of unprecedented emphasis on learn action Johnny Mine of the Giant:; with his prodigious home run feats has been the closest Ihint; to a consistent individual headline!The pennant races marked tm u . yesterday as the Dodgers. Cardinals and Yankees last and the Red Sox (jot only a split, so the spotlight went onto the individuals Mize led the headlines with his 41st and 42nd home runs. Ted Williams, with a minimum of fanlnre, ha.s climbed to the lop of the American League in hitting despite the defensive shift, and hi! three hits in seven tries in tiie doubleheader left him at .:«:! a 12-puinl lead over Lou Uumlreau or Cleveland. Harry Walker still led the National League with .34>J and Pete Reiser of Brooklyn was a distant second at .318. Most glory weiil lo Phil Marchildon, Athletic righthander, who had a .perfect garni- for eight, innings against Cleveland and lost a no-hitler in the ninth, then won Ilis 10th victory of the war \vitii a 121h-iiming double. Ill Brooklyn, the Dodgers didn't know whether they li:ui a new star or not Dan Bankhead, ->6- year-oid righthander who became the lirst Negro major le:u;uc pil- cher. His hurling was slnnimed [r,r 10 hits and eight runs in thri-e innings, but he iiimself retaliate.-! with a two-run homer. Pittsliui-gn walloped the Dadgers. Il> lo 3. making Hal Circus ' the icser and bringing l!ankhe:id on in the second inning. They drubbed him just a- hard, chasing him during the course-of a seven-run filth inning. Bank-head's homer came on his first major league at-bai. In justice to the Negro, it must be mentioned that Gregg and R?x Barney were hit just about tis hard, so the whole tiling may have been in the Hue bats rather than Bankhead's arm. St. Lonb stayed six games behind Brooklyn when Bill Voiselle stopped tlie Cards with three hits as Boston won. 5 lo L Mize's two home mns and two singles balled ill five runs as the Giants tripped the Chicago Cubs. T lo ii. Mb.e's iilnth-innim; single drove in two runs and won Hie game. Andy I'alko homered for Hie Cubs. The second game of the Iwin bill wn.s rained out. Cincinnati and Ihe I'hiis were idle. Marchildon had a perfect game against Cleveland unlll Ken Kcll- ner walked on a lllree-aild-l \o pitch, a close decision by umpire- Bill Yo.Kinlcy that inhaled Mnr- childon deeply. George Mclkovlch linally broke nplhe no-hlller wilh a one-out single in the ninth. , and scored after another single | and ah out. sending; the game into extra Innings. I'eic Siuler singled and Marchildon doubled in tlie I2th to give the A's a 2 to 1 victory. Paul Lehnor's single In Ihe ninth inning drove in the winning run as the last-place St. Louis Browns nosed the [irsl-]/lace Yankees, 4 j to :). 1 Detroit walloped the Hcd Sox, 12 to 1. and then the Red Sox walloped Detroit, 9 10 1. Williams batted in five runs in the second game with a home run. his 2(itli, and a double. Washington beat Ihe Chicago i Whit.? ;-:ox, -1 lo :), de..pite a double, two singles and two runs baited in I by Chicago pitcher Ed Lopal. Yesterday's Star — Phil Marchil- I don.
