') JEFFERD SAYS ONE FOR THE BOOKS 14 THE VANCOUVER SUN', Mon., June. 16,. 1952 Giants Lose After Big 11-0 Lead 'Swim B.C's Team Greatest' The 15 swimmers who will leave Vancouver for Hamilton, Ont, Wednesday night, comprise "the greatest Cana dian Olympic trials team B.C. has ever had." That is the considered opinion By JOE REICHLF.R Imagine a big-league baseball team blowing an 110 lead! It happened yesterday, and to the National League champion New York Giants at that. Sunday produced lots of excitement as New York Yankees increased their first-place lead in the American League with two victories over Cleveland Indians, Boston Braves chilled the red-hot Chicago Cubs with a double defeat and Cincinnati Reds won their first game of the season from Brooklyn Dodgers. Nothing, however, . matched St. Louis Cardinals' feat of overcoming the Giants' 11-0 lead to win 14-12. The proud Polo Grounders probably never wiil forget yesterday's doubleheader with the Redbirds, although they man-aged, to gain a split by winning the second game, 3-Q. But oh, what a first game! Leading 110 after four innings, with ace Sal Maglie on .the mound, and losing the game? The Giants still can't 'believe it. Neither can the circuit's largest crowd of the campaign 41,899 goggle-eyed fans. Held runless for four innings, the Cardinals routed Maglie with a seven-run fifth, climaxed by Enos Slaughter's three-run homer. Three more runs off Hoyt Wilhelm in the seventh cut the Giants' margin to one run. i . Solly Hemus' leadoff homer off George Spencer in the eighth tied the score at 11-11, and Slaughter's single off loser Max Lanier in the same inning finally put the Cards in front, 12-11. Another homer, by Hemus with one on in the ninth offset a Giant score in their half of the last frame. The Yankees opened up a lVa game lead in the American, thrashing the Indians twice, 8-2 and 4-3. The largest turnout of the year 69,468 fans watched the Yankees win their 12th and 13th games in 15 starts. Ed Lopat coasted to the first game Victory, his 34th in 43 decisions withthe Tribe.

(140V North Shore Favored It seems a cinch that North Shore will carry off the Main land Cricket League Championship. After its convincing win over Brockton Point on Saturday, it should be a walk-over. This victory left North Shore undefeated leaders of the league after seven rounds of play. In the two other "A" Division matches played on Saturday, Vancouver narrowly defeated South Hill, while Rowing Club trounced Varsity. of Art Jefferd, chairman of the B.C. drive for funds needed to send athletes to the trials. "We certainly have a good investment as far as these swimmers are concerned," added Jefferd after he watched parti cipants in a Vancouver Amateur Swimming Club meet set four new Canadian records at the Crystal Pool Saturday night. Nine of the trials team members are from the VASC. Gerry McNamee set three of the records. He broke his own 200-yard, and 220-yard freestyle marks and a 440-yard freestyle time established in 1936. Gerry did the 200 in 2:00.1, two and one-half seconds belter than his old mark and the 220 in 2:13.4. The 400-yard men's freestyle relay record of 3:47.8, set in 1934, was finished in 3:41.3 by the VASC relay team of Ted Simpson, Ron Crane, Jim Bain and Gerry.

Baz Nagle Leads BCE To Ball Win Baz Nagle, a gent who can pitch and hit, was the chief factor in BCE's surprise win over New Westminster Lucky Royals Sunday in a Kingsway Inter-City Baseball League game played at False Creek Park. Nagle threw seven-hit ball at Les Brown's faltering Royals to give BCE their second win of the year. BCE scored three runs in the eighth inning to break a 3-3 tie and cinch the 6-3 verdict.
