THE TIME3 RECORD, TROY, N. Y., MONDAY EVENING, APRIL' 7, 1952 Major League Batters Beginning To Wonder What Happened To Rabbit Braves' Pair Beats Flock On No-Hitter BY KAU'U RODKN. Associated Press Sports Writer Major league hitters are beginning" to suspect that some one is sabotaging the official league baseballs. Could it be that some "dead balls." famous in yrand puppy's day, have found their way into the usual batch of "rabbit"' balls? Warren Spahn and Ernie Johnson of the Boston Braves are the latest pitchers to lend support to the hitter's belief. Spahn and .Johnson teamed up and pitched the Braves to a 1-0 no- hit victory over the Brooklyn Dodgers at Chattanooga, Tenn., yesterday before 9,098 tans. The masterpiece was the third no-hit no-run game of Ihe spring, an unprecedented feat. From 1939 until this season only five no-hitters were pitched in G r a p e f r u i t League competition. Others This Year. Jim Hearn and Monte Kennedy of the New York Giants pitched 1952's first no-hitler, beating the Chicago Cubs, 10-0, on March 17. Rookie Righthander Steve Rid- zik of the Philadelphia Phillies pitched the second gem, downing the St. Louis Cardinals, 3-0, last Friday. Spahn toiled the tirsL seven in- 'nings and allowed only one Dodger, Roy Campanclla, who walked in the fifth, to get on base. Dick Williams, through on error, was the only Brook to reach base during Johnson's two innings. Preacher Roc, veteran Dodger lefthander, was almost as good. He blanked the Braves on six hits until the ninth when Willard Marshall homered with two out to win the game. Roe, one of baseball's leading breeders of "gopher pitches," has ' allowed four home runs this spring. The crowd booed when Spahn was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the. seventh. But Manager Tommy Holmes explained later: "Spahn has gone nine before. I know he's ready, and I wanted io get a look at this other kid. He's been bothered by a sore arm and hasn't pitched much." Johnson, up with the Braves in 1950, won 15 and lost 4 for Milwaukee during the regular American Association season in. 1951. The rookie righthander won five more games during the playoffs. Heavy hitting -featured the majority of the other games. Service-bound Ted Williams and Walt Dropo socked a pair of homers apiece to lead the Boston IKVIN TRIUS OUT CRUTCHES--Monte Irvin, hard-hitting New York Giants outfielder, gets out of bed and onto a pair of crutches at Denver's Mercy Hospital for first time r.ince his ankle was fractured in an exhibition game. He admitted he needed plenty of help from nurses' Charmainc Van (left) and Marguerite Office. Greys Top Behr Manning To Win LaSalle Tourney Tony's Greys, a y o u t h f u l , fast and aggressive combine of recent high school Iioopslers, withstood a second-half revival of older Bchr- Manhing to score a 68-6C triumph yesterday afternoon for the championship of the LaSalle Alumni vitution Basketball Tournament. This is the second tourney title this season for the Greys, the YMCA Invitation being the other conquest. Clem's Clippers bla/.cd a tournament record for total points in smashing St. Anthony's, 123-86, in the consolation. The Clippers, who had only five men on hand, also boasted two players who hurdled the previous 'individual high, George Aulicino and Bob Marx w i t h 37 and 35 respectively. The Greys, ahead by 12 late in the second quarter, succumbed to a Manning comebacl; that cut the lead to 37-29 at half and 53-48 after three quar' jrs. Count Reversed. One minute into fhe final frame, back-to-back layups by Bill Fleuren closed the gap to 53-52, and Bob Lavin's foul evened the count; The Greys forged back in front, but the figures were knotted at 5757; and again at 59-59 as Lavin's set matched n laytip by the Greys' Gene Toncy. Jack Purcell set for 61-59, Greys; Lavin's free .throw reduced the margin to 61-60; Red Sox to an 8-4 triumph over Cnico Cavallo's brace of fouls Oklahoma City of the Texas League at Oklahoma City. Pirates AVin. - - The Pittsburg Pirates pounded out 15 hits including homo runs by Ted Beard and Ralph Kincr to bury the Chicago Cubs, 13-1, at New Orleans. Howie Pollet limited the Cubs to two hits over the first six innings. Cliff Fannin, supported by the St. Louis Browns' 17-hit attack, had no trouble turning back the San Antonio Missions of the Texas League, 18-5, in the Alamo City. Rookie.Catcher Clint Courtney le'd the barrage with throe hits in the liomcrless game.

Marx certified his designation as the Most Sportsmanlike Player by sacrificing the scoring high t teammate Aulicino as the Clippers completed their rout of St. An thony's". As time was running out Marx broke into the clear, dribbler unchecked to the hoop, and witl a sure shot beckoning him, passed off to Aulicino to allow George to tally his 37th point while Man remained at 35.

LaMotta To Meet Hayes In Wednesday TV Bout New York (AP)--Former middleweight champion Jake LaMotta eturns to Detroit, his favorite fight town, Wednesday to meet Norman Jayes o! Boston in the feature bout of an otherwise drab weekly fight ard. The bout gives LaMotta a hance to reverse a Jan. 28 split decision loss to Hayes and also provides his favorite ring setting or an attempt to break a winless treak begun when when Sugar Ray Robinson won the middle- veight crown from him Feb. 14, 951. His last victory, in fact, was . successful title defense--in De- roit--^against Laurent Dauthuille f France Sept. 13, 1950. That one jave the one-time Bronx Bull a mark of 13 wins and one draw in 4 Detroit fights since losing to Robinson in 1943. Hayes, too, will be seeking to end a losing streak, having dropped successive Iharles Humez Paris bouts to ' of France and Dauthuille after his win over La- Motta. The 20-year-old Boston Negro will have a ten-year advantage over Jake in age in the bout, which will be a nationwide radio- TV hookup., The Friday night radio-TV show at St. Nicholas Arena pair Arthur King of Toronto and Del Flanagan of St. Paul. Both are listed as lightweights--King is the former British Empire champ--but they have welterweight aspirations, and a victory would help whichever class they decide to fight in. Kin£ has beaten Fitzie Prudcn of St Catherine's, Ont.. twice this year largely on his stiff left jab, while Flanagan nas won only one of three bouts in 1952. Their records are almost iden tical. King has won 51, lost seven while Flanagan has won 53, fough two draws and lost five.

Montemage, a 1952 Olympic hopeful, broke the record during a program of a local bicycle club in the 174th Armory here. Sammy Snead Wins Masters Golf Tourney Augusta, Ga. (AP-- Sam Snead got one big break when it counted and played a lot of sound, conservative golf yesterday to win his second Masters title with the highest score in the tournament's history. Defying the wind that almost blew him out of the event Saturday, Slamming Sammy from White Sulphur Springs, W. Va.", shot a final round o£ par 72 and posted a winning 72-hole score of 286. That was one stroke above the highest previous winning score and four above Sam's when he won in 1949. It was a gratifying score, nevertheless, for Snead finished ahead of litfle Ben Hogan and broke the long-standing "jinx" Hogan had held over him in major tourney clashes. Hogan, who had pulled up even with ^ Snead on the third round, couldn't hold the par pace yesterday as 15,000 to 20,000 chilly spectators scurried back and forth across the course to keep up with the duel. Playing unsteadily, he had a final round of 79 and a 293 total. That put him in a fair-way tie for seventh place. Ben was just one of several players who had a chance to win the windswept tournament on the final day but couldn't make it Cary Middlecoff, who started the final round only two strokes behind the leaders, dropped out with a 41 on the first nine. Tommy Bolt, made, up a three- stroke deficit with two eagles then tossed away his chance by three- putting three successive greens And big Al Bessclink of Chicago failed to make up a three-stroke deficit although he remained in a contending position until the last nine holes. So it' was Snead by four strokes.

All-GkTCrewHas Trouble Finishing Florida Yacht Race St. Petersburg, Fla. (AP,)-An all-girl crew was rescued from the racing yaght Tropi- cair yesterday by the Coast Guard after the vessel went aground on a reef. The Tropicair and- its girl sailors have been hopping in and out of the news for 14 months -- ever since the schooner and- its crew got'lost in the 1951' St. Petersburg- Havana yacht race. The /essel ran aground at Egmont Key in the mouth of Tarnpa Bay. It was entered in a Tampa-Egmont Key sailing race. The Coast Guard received a radio report from the Tropi- cair late Saturday night that it was aground and taking water while being pounded on a reef by high waves. A Coast Guard crash boat en route to the area also went aground after losing its rudder and part of a keel. The Coast Guard cutter Nemesis then went out and took the bedraggled five-girl crew off about 3:30 a.m. Le Hederman, skipper and owner of the Tropicair, stayed aboard the vessel which was towed back here by the Coast Guard. It suffered only minor damage. The Tropicair finished the 1952 St. Petersburg-Havana race with no sailing troubles. Biggest excitement this year was when one of the crew members got married to a sailor on another racing vessel.
