Tuesday Evening, October 10, 1944 THE ABILENE REPORTER-NEWS Tune in on KRBC Texas-Oklahoma, Randolph- Southwest Headliners ^/IXVJLJO WIN SERIES--The St. Louis Cardinals went ahead of the Browns in the fourth inning, 3 to 1, and held the lead to take the final game yesterday in the World Series. Here Kurowski is tagged out by Potter after being trapped off first in the second inning, retiring the side. (NBA Telephoto). CARD INFIELD PERFECT TAKE TIME OUT TO LISTEN TO BALL GAME--Using a wall of a captured enemy pillbox on the Siegfried Line these GI's bend an ear to their radio for a session with the Browns and Cards. (Signal Corps Radiotelephoto from NEA Telephoto). s Top Servio ST."LOUIS, Oct. io.--oflp)-- The best team in baseball won the World ^Series and that's as it should be. Superb strikeout pitching and perfect infield play by the St. Louis Cardinals with an occasional flash of power cooled off the Browns' hot. streak and left them a beaten ball ^club, losers 4 to 2 in games after i tough uphill struggle in a six-tilt battle at Sportsmans park. Orershadowed by the total of " 92 third-strike victims that swept all series records off ths books was the routine destruction of 3 s American league rallies engineered by Marty Marion and the' other Cardinal infielders who supplement "Mr. Shortstop." The Bed Bird quartet handled 124 chances without » boot while r» the Brownie inner circle ..hobbled ^ seven of 126 tries. It was pitching again in yesterday's finale played before'a chilled, top-coated congregation of only 31,630, when Billy Southworth's crew regained the world championship they lost to the Yankees a year ago. Outstanding in the Nationals' 3-1 clinching victory was the -relief pitching of Freshman Ted Wilks who failed miserably on his only start in the third game. The Fulton (NY) Polish lad regained the confidence his 17-4 season record justified by stopping the Browns without a hit in 3 2-3 innings after starter Max Lanier went haywire on 'a wild streak in the sixth. Wilks fanned four and Lanier whiffed five, making it 49 strikeouts thrown by the Card staff Jfor another new record. The previous high for a six-gaine set was 44 hung up by the. Chief Bender-Jack Coombs - Eddie Plank trio for the .Athletics against the Giants in 1911. Three singles mixed in with * costly error by Vern Stephens and a walk in the fourth inning scored three runs, overcame the Browns' 1-0 lead and meant the ball game. Attendance held up satisfactorily, considering the limited capacity of the park, and the first all-St. 'Louis classic drew 206,708 paid to become the fifth successive million dollar series with the help of $100,000 in radio rights -that boosted the receipts to $1,006,122. Individual player cuts were way below the standards of recent years. The Cards' "approximate winning slice of $4,334 and the losers' checks for about S2.842 took you back to 1933 and 1920 for respective previous lows. Although the victors outhit the Browns, .340 to .183, George McQuinn, Luke SeweU's only consistent performer at the pl»t«, led both teams with a .438 average and drove in five of hi* club's 12 scores. Emil Cerban, the Cards' weak hitting second baseman picked up three for three the last day for a .412 mark that topped Walker Cooper's .318 and Stan Musial's .304. They were the only .300 hitters among the regulars. There was no standout hero and nobody wore the goat's horns. Mort Cooper's feat of striking out 12 men, only one short of Howard Ehmke's all-time record in Sunday's game probably was the biggest thrill for Brother Mort was was really blazing that fast one right past the American leaguers that day. For the Browns', Mark Christman's failure to hit was a major disappointment but the entire club was pitifully weak in that department. Southworth rates a hand for his job of rousing the Cards' from a nunth-long slump that lasted half way through the series and transferring them into a. man-eating bunch of opportunists in the last three days. When McQuinn beat Cooper with a two-run homer in the first game it looked as though the Browns streak might carry through to one of the biggest sp- sets in years. Even after they had lost the 11-mning second game 3-2, it seeiaed they jnight yet do the job when Jack Kramer fanned 10 men and won, 6-2, to put them one up Friday. The Cards started swinging loosely for the fences, Saturday as Harry "The Cat" Brecheen pitched himself in and out of trouble to come up with his first series victory 5-1. Cooper's 2-0 win over Denny Galehouse in one of the prettiest duels in recent years was the payoff. Even the most rabid Brownie fans were prepared for yesterday's defeat.
