Those "nine old men"—the fellows who won it last -year—are still in the National League pennant race. That's the Brooklyn Dodgers' message today to the experts who v/ere beginning to view the 1957 race as primarily a two - team struggle bc'.ween the Milwaukee Braves and Cincinnati Redlegs. First the Braves reeled off 12 victories in their first 14 games and j Drysdale and Clem Labine. Drysdale went the first seven innings to win his third game without a loss. Labine, making his isth relief appearance in 27 games, rushed in from the bullpen when the Cardinals, rallied for two runs in the eighth and closed it out. A couple of old fashioned pitching duels marked the only two other games played in the majors then the Redlegs mounted their, Monday, the Washington Senators 12-game winning streak. beating the Detroit Tigers, 2-1, 12-game winning All the while the Dodgers had failed to put together more than three victories in succession and there were whispers in N.L, dug- cuts that the old champs had "had it." So tonight they invade Cincinnati riding the crest of a four- game winning streak—their longest of the season—and fresh from two smashing victories over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Dodgers •walloped the Cardinals, 10-4, Monday night to sweep the two-game series they opened with Sunday's 10-3 rout. Dodgers Move Up As a result, the Dodgers moved w within only a half-game ofth e zecond-place Braves and trail the front-running BedJcgs by two and one-half.

Ed Fitzgerald beat out an infield hit with the bases filled in the last of the! ninth to drive in the winning run after the two right banders hurled shutout ball from the second inning. The win was Ramos' third and the loss made Lary's record 2-5. Connie Johnson turned in a two- hitter and stretched the Oriole pitcher's strink of scoreless innings to 20 as he handed the A's their fourth shutout in their tost seven games. Gus Triandos singled home Bob Nieman with Baltimore's first run and Tito Francona singled home the second. Ned Garver suffered hjs tiiird loss- against two wins while Johnson won his second game compared with four defeats.

Columbia Edges Jefferson, 3-2 Bob Hayden's timely home run in the top half of the sixth inning provided the Columbia Red Devils enough cushion to squeeze out a 3-2 victory over the Jefferson Wildcats in a city grade school league baseball game at Columbia field Monday afternoon. Columbia broke a scoreless deadlock in the top of the fourth when John Clark singled and Hayden was purposely walked. However, Earl Richter lashed out a long single to plate both runners, Jefferson came back with a run in its half of the fourth and then Hayden .belted his four-base wallop in the sixth. Jefferson scored once in the last of the sixth and had the tying run on base but could n't move the runner home. Paul Little of Jefferson turned in a sterling pitching performance, allowing three hits, all! of • which figured in Columbia's scoring, he walked only one batter, the iiv ter.tional pass to Hayden, and fanned eleven. John Clark, working for Columbia, was nicked for six hits, two each by. Don Speitel ar.d Bob Luetzow of Jefferson. He walked three and fanned six. The victory left Columbia with a 4-1 season mark and the loss was Jefferson's second of the campaign. All other city league games yesterday were postponed due to wet grounds.
