Detroit riKhl-hander, has a Jubilant yell in the dressing room after pitching his second no-hit, no-run game to defeat the New York Yankees in New York Monday, Steve Souchock (left) and Walt Dropo (right) put together two hits, a double by Dropo and a single by Souchock to .score the only run of the game in the seventh inning. Trucks' firsl no-hitter ol the season was on May 15 at Detroit against, the Washington Nationals. (AP VVircpliolo) Veteran Baffles Browns 12-7; Giants Gain Ground By RALPH ROD EN AP Sports Writer H would not be at all surprising to find the faces of General Managers Joe Oonin of the Boston Red Sox and Hank Greenberu of the Cleveland Indians a bit red today, The discomfiture of the general ninnagers can bo laid at the feet of Ray Scarborough, a 35-year-old pickle salesman from Mt. Olive, N. c., who Is currently employed a pitcher for . the American League's pace-setting New York Yankees. Fans in Boston probably are demanding to know why Cronin sold Scarborough to the Yanks. Those in Cleveland must be wondering why Greenberg passed up au op porlunily to obluin the tall right- hander. Scarborough gained credit yesterday for the Yanks' 12-7 victory over St. Louis. The .triumph enabled the Yanks to stretch their lead to two games over the second- place Indians In the pressure- paced race. The Indians dropped back by tjowing. 6-5, to Philadelphia. Boston's third-place Red Sox remained 3',i games astern as Mel Parnell shut out Detroit, 5-0. In the remaining American League game, the Chicago While Sox defeated the Senators, 4-1, under the lights at Washington. Brooklyn stubbed its toe in its march to the National League pen nant by dropping a 10-5 decision to the" Chicago Cubs while the runner-up New York Giants sneaked by Pittsburgh, 5-4, to reduce the Dodger advantage to 9'/ 2 games. In night games, Philadelphia smeared St. Louis, 7-2, and Boston downed Cincinnati, 12-7, In 10 j n , ntngs. Scarborough was procured by the Yanks from Boston on Aug. 22 for the £10.000 waiver price. All other clubs League had in the chance American to obtain Scarborough before the Yanks but none nibbled. . Wednesday he entered the game In the third Inning In relief of Allie Reynolds, who was tagged for five unearned runs in the second inning. Scarborough limited th a Browns to Ihree hits In four Innings and was awarded the victory when the Yanks came up with-four runs in the sixth to lake a 10-8 lead. Lefty Curt Simmons breezed to his llth victory for the Phils in the night game at St. Louis. The Phils rapped Wilmer (Vinegar) Bend Mlzell and Joe Presko for a 7-0 lead in three innings. — A Chances Against Oil Strike VANCOUVER. Canada stock broker here likes to caution on his clients.
