7 w w --- v r ' ' I - THE WINDSOR DAILY STAR, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1951 27 'In on Amts of ' Reynolds (No - Hitter), Raschi Wahoo! Bombers Surround OF Teammates flank Pitcher Allie Reynolds who hurled a brilliant no-hitter against Boston Red Sox yesterday at Yankee Stadium in he first game of a twin bill that the Yanks swept, 8-0 and 11-3, Allies Stint Rates Select Spot But, No Joke Along Route Accent On Restraint In Yankee Clubhouse By MILTON RICHMAN United Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, (UP) Allie Reynolds with two no-hitters in one season clinched a select spot in baseballs archives today while his New York Yankee team-mates, in a little more hum-drum manner, clinched their 18th American League pennant. Was I impressed by the fact I pitched two no-hitters this season? Reynolds rolled the question over in his mind after holding Boston hitless in yesterdays opener. HARD TO IMPRESS I dunno . . . really I dont, he answered. I dont even know if the fans were impressed. Baseball fans in New York are very hard to impress. Theyre used to victories . . . but you sure make a bad impression with em when you lose. Reynolds, who hurled his first no-hitter of the season against Cleveland, July 12, then sat patiently in the clubhouse while the . Yankees officially applied the clincher by wrecking the Red Sox, 11 to 3 in the nightcap. There wasnt much difference between this one and the one I threw against Cleveland, Reynolds, a 32-year-old Cree Indian, explained. Neither team got any hits off me, he said, smiling at his one little joke. Well, maybe there was just one difference, he conceded. Against Cleveland, I kidded about the no-hitter on the bench while I was pitching it. RUNNING TRADITION "The story got out .and I got a lot of letters saying I was ruining the American tradition of baseball by laughing about the thing while I was pitching it. So I didnt mention a word about it this time. Thats right. offered Eddie Lopat. he didn't say boo this time. The Yankees nightcap triumph the conquest that earned them the junior league crown for the third straight season was a plain and simple anti-climax after Reynold's masterpiece., No complaints, mumbled a weary Casey Stengel. "Not a complaint in the world. We won it fair and square. Hooray for us; tough for the other guys. Stengel then sidled over to Joe DiMaggios locker. Joe, said Stengel, gripping the hand of his veteran centre fielder, I wanna thank you for everything you did to help. DiMaggio nodded, then retreated to a quiet corner where he removed his shirt and lit a cigaret. JOES 10TH SERIES About to participate in his 10th world series, the 36-year-old DiMaggio observed: You never really get used to playing in the series. You look forward to it every year. There was some minor celebrating in the Yankee clubhouse, particularly among some of the newcomers, but for the most part, the accent appeared to be on restraint. Phil Rizzuto whacked away at his whiskers with a safety razor in one corner of the clubhouse . . . Mickey Mantle stood near his locker, displaying only the usual amount of boyish curiosity. . . . Lopat conversed with his protege, Whitey Ford, out on a pass from his army barracks . . . winning pitcher Vic Raschi had his picture taken and then hustled for a shower . . . and Joe Collins munched hungrily on a cheese sandwich. PACT WITH ROYALS QUEBEC, CP Itoger Roberge, hard-hitting Quebec defenceman, said last night he has accepted a two-year contract with New Westminster Royals of the Pacific Coast Hockey League. Van BrocklinV Passing Staggers Yanks, 54-14 LOS ANGELES, (AP) The National Football League was off to a flying start today, with the Los Angeles Rams writing a brilliant new chapter in the record book. Other clubs in the circuit swing into action over the weekend. Highlighted by the record-smashing performance of quarterback Norman Van Brocklin, who broke the league mark for yards gained by passing when he sent the Rams traveling 554 yards via the air, Los Angeles walloped the New York Yanks by a 54-14 score. TOPS LUJACK The yardage by the Flying Dutchman from Oregon eclipsed the record of 468 yards for a single game registered in December of 1949 by Johnny Lujack of the Chicago Bears against the Chicago, Cardinals. Van Brocklin threw 41 passes and completed 27, three more completions than Lujack achieved in his game. Van Brocklin, playing the entire game while the Rams nominal No. 1 quarterback. Bob Waterfield, nursed a lame leg, connected for five touchdown passes. The longest scoring pitch was good for 67 yards. The shortest was one yard, and oddly enough, this strike was the one that tied the Lujack mark. Thus the Rams, gunning for their third straight National Conference title and a shot at the league championship, gave the other teams something to think about as the season gets going. Tomorrow the champiou Cleveland Browns open their campaign against the San Francisco 49ers in the bay city, pitting those old rivals from the late All-America conference, Otto Graham of the Browns against southpaw Frankie Albert of the 49ers.

American League wire. After what happened yesterday the vast conclave now can only participate in one of the most expensive wakes in diamond history. During the late innings of yesterdays memorable slaughter of the Sox a leather lunged fan shouted so as to be heard a long way off: "Are you guys (the Sox) going to show up tomorrow The question now holds good for those ahead of the rush. As a matter of fact, the two games today promised to be not appreciably more anti-climatic than the second one yesterday in which the Bombers made their victory certain. SPECTATORS SPENT Both the Yankees and the spectators spent themselves pretty completely while Alllie Reynolds was pitching the champs at least a tie, and they knew when Yogi Berra gathered in Ted Williams high foul for the final out that they were going to play in their third straight World Series. Nothing that could have happened in the second game would have mattered much to Stengels warriors. Of course, they were happy when they whacked the Sox again behind Vic Raschi in the second game and removed all possible doubt of their status as league champions. But the photo-grahpers had difficulty getting them to exult. They had gone through all that once before.

Phils 4 to 3 Punch Kills Brooks Lead Dodgers, Giants All Square With Two Games Apiece To Go By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer The gallant New York Giants, tied for first place after wiping out a 13-game Brooklyn lead, threaten to elbow into the world series with New York Yankees in one of baseballs greatest comebacks. With Yanks already in after Allie Reyrtolds ho-hitter and yesterdays double win over Boston, the Giants rate an even chance to charge past the fading Dodgers who lost to the Phillies last night, 4-3. RARE PARALLEL In years to come theyll talk of the 1951 Giants in the same breath with the 1914 Boston Braves and the 1942 St. Louis Cardinals if they win the pennant. Even the Miracle Braves of 14, who dashed from last on July 20 to win by 104, must respect Leo Durochers determined tribe from the Polo Grounds. They can better the deeds of the 42 Cards, who blasted a 104-game Brooklyn lead to win for Billy Southworth. Pushed into a tie by Brooklyns loss, the Giants play at Boston today and tomorrow, while the Dodgers meet the Phils in two singles at Philadelphia. Unless the tie is broken there will be a best-of-three playoff for the National League championship, starting at Brooklyn Monday. The Dodger night loss almost stole the play from the Yanks third straight pennant-clinching and 18th in their history. Even Reynolds briUiant no-hitter, his second of the season, lost some of its lustre amid the wild confusion over the National League race. OTHER WAY AROUND For months the experts predicted a last-day finish in the American and an early wrap-up for Brooklyn. Instead the Yanks clinch with two days to go, and the Dodgers may never make it. Reynolds dramatic thriller in the first game with the Red Sox, 8-0, assured the Yanks of no worse than a tie. Only once before, and never in the American League, has a pitcher thrown two no-hitters in the same year. Johnny Vander Meers feat of pitching two in a row for Cincinnati in 1938 was the only topper. The big Indian had a bad scare in the ninth. With two out, Ted Williams lofted a high foul behind the plate. Yogi Berra dropped it. With another chance to break the spell, Williams popped another foul that Berra gathered in for the final out. Seven runs in the second inning and a three-run homer by Joe DiMaggio in the sixth sewed up the 11-3 clincher, Vic Raschis 21st win. The double Boston loss eliminated idle Cleveland, now 34 games back, but also assured the Indians of finishing second. JONES PAYOFF MAN The Phillies, who were staggering around at this time last year trying to win a pennant, took a fall out of the Dodgers, Willie Jones ninth-inning single scoring speedy Richie Ashbum from second to beat Carl Erskine. Andy Seminicks two-run homer in the eighth tied the score. Earlier, Roy Cam-panellas homer helped the Dodgers build up a 3-0 lead on Karl Drews. Just to rub it in, an ex-Giant, Andy Hansen, was the winning Phil Pitcher.

POOR RELATIONS Stengels hustling crew, celebrating their third straight flag today, are poor relations compared to the mighty machines piloted by the late Miller Huggins and Joe McCarthy. The Bombers of today boast none of that awesome power that enabled the Yanks to bowl over the opposition from 1926 through 1928 and 1936 through 1939 and 41 to 43. Huggins started the Yankees off on their amazing record of 18 pen nants and 13 world championships by guiding the bombers to pennants in 1921, 1922, 1923. The Yanks lost the World Series to the Giants In 1921 and 1922 but they copped the Blue Ribbon Classic in 1923, the first year that the Yankee Stadium was opened. GOLDEN PHASE Three years later the Yanks began an era that is regarded by many today as the golden phase of their marvelous history. With immortals Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig leading the way, the Yanks belted their way to three straight pennants. They lost the 1926 World Series to an inspired band of St. Louis Cardinals but cleaned up Pittsburgh in four games In 1927 and the Cards in four straight in 1928. The Yanks were among the also rans until 1932 when McCarthy brought them home in front. That was only the beginning for Marse Joe. Joe DiMaggio arrived on the scene in 1936 and led the Yar.ks to four straight pennants and as many World Series victories. The Yanks missed the boat in 1940 but McCarthy came back with the bacon in 1941, 1942 and 1943. That was the end of great Yankee pennant machines. McCarthy bowed out in 1946 and Bucky Harris stepped down from a front office berth to manage the club. The Yanks of 1947. like Stengels current team, won the flag in a stiff battle. Harris was fired after the 1948 season and Stengel took over. Ready For Sarnia f? VS t IVAN RAE Sarnia 11 Faces U.A.W.-C.I.O.

No Words, But Faces Are Ashen Dodgers Sit Dumbfounded ; Twas Leas Cheerful Than Morgue By RUSS GREEN United Tress Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA (UP) The unbelieving Brooklyn Dodgers sat dumbfounded in the full realization that at long last, the unbelievable New York Giants had caught them. It seemed to sink in slowly, rr maybe it was too great a blow to take without reeling, that tho 4-3 ninth inning victory of the Philadelphia Phillies had wiped out the last vestige of the overwhelming 13V-game lead they held just six weeks ago. AUTOMATONS A morgue, before or after tho autopsy, is far more cheerful than was the slow shuffle of Dodger automatons to and from the showers. A dropping pin would have sounded like the clang of a sledge on an anvil. Ashen and speechless as they changed their elothing, the Dodgers apathy was such that an unkind observer muttered baseball's famous epithet choked up. This, mind you, was 15 minutes after the Dodgers had left the field after dropping a game which seemed all sealed and delivered. The Brooks, behind Carl Erskine, led 3-1 going Into the eighth Inning. Then Andy Seminick hit a two-run homer, his first since August 11. In the ninth, Willie Jones singled Richie Ashbum home with the winning run. HURRIED EXIT Reporters were kept out of the garden of the doomed for a quarter of an hour, and In that interim only Jackie Robinson left. Someone clocked his shower and dressing at six minutes. It took a good five minutes for Manager Charley Drrssen to get around to a talking point Numbness had invaded even the manager's cell. That Seminick. Dresscn said. He hit a homerun the first time I ever saw the Thillies play. Now he hits one tonight." Dressen explained that when Handy Andy was up in the clutch earlier, Erskine had pitched high to him. Then In the eighth, the Dodger hurler gave Seminick a low ball and Andy promptly put It Into the stands. If he had hit e single, I would have yanked Erskine," Dresscn said. But when he hit the homer, I stayed with him. It was the Dodgers sixth loss in their last eight games and Dressen posed a question himself. How can you stay on top playing ball .500 or less, and the opposition is playing .900 ball? he asked.
