SEVEN BL' Castoff Lefties Take Bows In Red Hot American Race (AKK.) OOOTlIBa KBWf By JOE REICHLEK Auocixted Frtst Sportt Writer A trio of scorned southpaws were dancing on air today to the music made by the ^ Fresh groans of the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians. . from upset victories over the pennant contenders, the trio _ pitchers Stub, Bill Wight and Billy Pierce— proved once again how embarrassing it can efJ> underestimate Overmlre, a caStoff. . cast adrift by Detroit* """ winter, gained sweet revenge upon his former employers yester- oay when he hung a 6-2 defeat on (he learrue leaders to give the St. Louis Browns «n even break In their donblehesder. The Tigers had "me from behind to win the opener. 5-4. . Wight and Pierce, traded off by the New York Yankees and Tigers, respectively, turned in sparkling performances In pitching the Chi«S» White Sox to 2-1 and S-5 triumphs over the Indians. Taking advantage of the Tiger • rid Indian lapses, the Yankees won tm> games from the hapless Philadelphia Athletics, 6-4 and 5-2, to climb into second place past the Indians. The Bronx Bombers, who open a long home stay Tuesday fc'iili an Important three-game series against the Tigers, thus chewed i lull game off the TiRCrs' le«d and moved another game In front of the Tribe. The Timers' margin over the Vanks is three games. Bosox Rained Out Boston's idle Red Sox remain in fourth place, six ?ames off the pare. A washout of their scheduled game with Washington halted temuorari- ly their seven-fame winning streak Riln als" rut the National League activity. With the four eastern teams vlelrtlne to weentnc skies, the Kngiiteht ws thrust on Ihe St. Trills Cs^prials. The Red pirrts rose lo the occasion, comlne from behind to uji? the Cine'n"«ll *>*>d<; ; Stan Mnslsl drove tn all St. '•<> runs with three singles. Howie Pollet gained, the nod over .nincHmuTs Herman Wehmier. The vi"'irv moved the Cards Into a third place tie with Boston. Paul Winner and Prank rDutch) Hlller. another nalr of discards, pitched the Chicago Cubs to n 4-2. 5-2 sween of a doublehendcr from Pittsburgh. Minner. the former Brooklyn Dorteer lefthander, allowed eight hits for his seventh victory In the ooener. He was he •etl by Andy Pafko's 29th homer. Hiller. an e.T-Yankee, snaced seven hits for, hi* ninth victory against two losses. Bill Serena drove In thres runs for the winners. Ralnh Klner rapped his 37th homer for the B'ics. Tlrrrs Came From Behind The Tigers were forced to overcome a 4-! deficit to beat the Browns In the opener. Thev won in the ninth when Aaron Robinson, former Yankee and White Sox. singled >Vlc Wertz home with two out. 31-year-old Overmlre. who ile to win but four games for Detroit In the last two years, gained his fifth victorv for the Browns In the nightcap. He allowed nine hits and walked four but was strong In the clutch as the Tigers left 10 men stranded. A home run by another ca.stoM. outfielder Marr Rtckert, gave Wight the edge In the pitching duel with Cleveland's Bob Lemon. Wight gave up five hits to six"for Lemon. Kickert's homer came with one on in the fourth. Pierce allowed only si* hits In the second game, which seventh Inning home run by Gus Zernlal decided. The big bat of Joe DiMagglo and aome slick pitching by lefties Eddie Lopat and »Wdle Ford gave the Yankees thei.'.two victories over the A's. DIMaggio's three-run homer and two subsequent singles helped Lopafc gain his 14th win in the opener. Ford checked the A's with six hits in the nig'nlcap for his fourth victory. O ne 'A By Cloth Do-or-Dyer As the 1950 baseball season slips Into its final weeks It begins to look more and more like this Is the "Do-or-Dyer" year for the St. Louis Cardinals. Red Bird fans are blaming Manager Eddie Dyer for the Cards' railing from grace and flouncing miserably In the lower confines of the National League's first-division in recent weeks. And the belief that this Is Ihe last year (or Eddie at the helm of the Cards was substantiated somewhat last week by a statement made by Card Owner Fred Saigh during an Associated Press Interview. Saigh Indicated lhat he has a bellyful! of ; Dyer. He said, in effect, that he wasn't In any hurry lo lalk contract with Eddie. Last year Salgh announced Dyer would return as the Cards' pilot in 1950 a month I or so before Die 1949 season was over, but this year, according to Saigh, there is "plenty or time," which I could mean that he plans to look around a little. Eastern sportswriUrs have been nTltlnt Dyer's National League obituary every year for Ihe past three seasons but Eddie and the Cardinal front office refused to cooperate. Eddie kept cumin* back and nuking genuine fools out of the lot of them. But Ihia could he Ihe year. The Cardinals Eddie t>rer 6lVe 1O5 * a lot "' tht spark lnat «rried them to pennanls and World Series championships In 19«, 1M1 and I94S. last year they folded In the stretch drive. Thl. year they stalled well but slipped in late July inlo fourth place and many observers believe that wily a jranrt slam finish will save Dyer Just what is the matter with the Red Birds? There are differences in opinions. Some fans say It's their pitching. The Cards huvc entirely too many "boarding house" pitchers. By that they mean that two trips Whatever the reason there Is one thing that has definitely hurt the a swap or a midsons Lose 2nd Round Tilt In State Meet Burnett Hudson's Pacemakers were eliminated from the state «oftball tournament last night in their second round game with the defending state champion Worthen Bankers of Little Rock. The Bankers downed the Pacemakers 7-2 In the second round after the Blylhevllle learn had won over the Dr. Pepper Bottlers of Paragould In the first round. WildneM of pitchers hurt (he Pacemakers In last night's games. The Bankers scored ail seven of their runs In the third inning on only two hits. Bill Denton started for Blytheville but was relieved by Herb Holmes In the third frame alter walking the bases full. Holmes then walked five straight batters. In their first game of the tournament Saturday night, the i-ace- raakers were defeated by ihe Slfflggs Drug store nine ol Little Rock 3-1.

That Is their inability to get the best end of player sale. In this column's opinion this fact sticks out more than an of the above mentioned reasons. Ken Johnson did nothing but bullpen work for the Cards in early season. They traded him to the Phillies for outfielder Johnny Blatnlfc. Johnson Is now taking a regular turn as a starter wUh the Phils. He shutout the Cards in his only appearance against them while Blatnlk has been scuttled off to the minors Salgh put out the 410,000 waiver price for John Linden who was waived out of the American League.

(/T|—It Is ironic and regrettable that Joe Louis, (he man who revived heavyweight boxing and made it the most Clamorous sport. of them all for more than a decade, should now be forced Eo bury the remains. For no matter what happens on' the night of Sept. 27—whether Joe whips E?,zard Charles or Ezzard ivhlps Joe—the game Is a goner (or < long time (o come. Good heavyweights appear to be a vanishing race, gone with the dinosaur. The coming right means nothing lo the 36-year-old I^ouis except an opportunity to raise some quick money and settle his income tax tab with the big boss. He has no desire to fight again, and the traln- ine grind will'be galling to him. If he wins, then what? He will liave done nothing more than prove that (lie younger heavies are a sorry lot. indeed, as had been more than susnectcd. ' Heavyweights Scarce Had the old champion not been forced lo come back, then It 'mlqht have been possible in time to become Charles as the tltteholder and to generate some interest in n bout between him and. say, Lcr Savold. the ex-bartender. nut if Joe wallops the Cincinnati fy«! Negro, as the bookies now favor him (o do by odds' of 3-1. Ezzard might as well wrap It up. And beyond him there Isn't a he.ivyivelght'in the country of any stature. Even around the gyms Ihcse days the managers no longer call you aside and confide that they have a young heavy prospect who can move around and take it nnrt throw a left hook like Drmpsey. There Is a distinct spirit of lassitude among the pilots. Charles is In an unenviable spot in every rcspecl. He never wanted to tight his old Idol, Louis. H was forced upon him. It offered .him his first chance to make some real money, even though lie had to accept 20 per cent of the net while Joe was demanding nnrt getting 35 per cent. Nothing to Gain The fight offers him vprv little else. It Is highly doubtful "thnt a victory would boost his popularity or cause him to be regarded all of a .sudden as a humdinger of a heavyweight. He was untorlunaln In having to go through with the Freddie Besliore bout In Buffalo. Though he finally stabbed Freddie Into a bloody wreck after 14 rounds, Ezzard let 'everyone see once again that he wouldn't dent, a dolly with either fist. Not only that, but he got hit far too often by Bcshore. . . : "And If that guy can htt him," as' one observer put It, "so can Joe Louis. That's all I want to know." Finally, If Ezzard'-fools 'em anrt bats the old champion around for 15 rounds, what will the fans say? Why. they'll say that Ezznrd, .the coward, waited until Joe 'was fat and decrepit and out of breath and then slipped him the works. They say the biggest mistake Jack Johnson ever made—and he turned In some beauts—was In cutting down and humiliating another champion who tried to come back, Jim Jeffries.
