Pi«l PA 2-4600 for a WANT EVENTKG TIMES, CUMBERLAND MIX, Three Subs' Help Sweep Pair Games t FromBues NEW YORK-(lNS>-The Cincinnati Redlcgs have concocted a simple but contradictory formula for success—they use their depth lo reach the heights. The Hedlogs lead the National League by two games today, all because Ihelr'bench and bullpen came Ihrough in the clutch yesterday to sweep a doubleheader from Pillsburgh. Three nominal bcnchwafmers —George Crowe, Smokcy Burgess and Bob Thurman-swung"' lusty bals for Cincinnati and the team's No. 2 reliever—Tom Acker—kept the Pirates quiet a,s the Rcdlogs scored 8-to-7 and 5-to-4 victories. Crowe's lilt Decides Crowe, filling in at first for the irreplaceable" Ted Kluszcwski, won the opener when his fourth hit of the game drove in the deciding run in the lasl of the ninth. He had four RBI's for the game and now is baiting .359. His last blow presented the victory to Acker, who pitched to only one batter in stopping the Pirates after they had scored five times in Ihe top of the ninth to tit the game. The RedJegs were losing the nightcap, 3 to l, until reserve catcher Burgess hit a two-run homer off Bon Kline in the seventh and Thurmsn hit a pinch roundtripper (o put Cincinnati ahead.

Curfew Set At 10:20 • The game originally had been set for the afternoon but because if the running of the Preakncss, Baltimore's management requested a 7 p. m. starting time. True o league rules, the Chicago players were consulted and agreed to it. A 10:20 curfew was set to enable them to make train connec- Jons but three hours and 20 min utcs seemed adequate. "We-had a one run lead going into the last of the ninth," Lopez said. "There is a clock in centerfield in Baltimore and I could see that it was very close to 10-20 tt. when LaPalme started the inning. "But there was a catch to it. to compile a 15-50 record for the season. The next year he was 1912 for the Tigers. ' Alter spending 1951 in military service, Houlleman slipped to 8-20 in 1952 and was traded to Cleve- 'and the following season. He won 15 and lost 7 as the Indians won the pennant in 19M and was 10-6 the next season. Last year, working behind such starters as Herb Score. Bob Lemon, Early Wynn and Mike Garcia, Houltoman pitched only 47 innings and had a 2-2 record. He started but two games. When Celveland was here for a series last week, Manager Kerby Farrell said Houtteman "is the last man on our pitching staff." informing us when it's 10:20. And I'm not permitted to ask him what his watch reads. "There is the possibility of stalling to kill the time. J had something in mind all right when I had Billy Pierce in the bullpen warming up. If the hitter, Williams, gets on base I was going to bring in Pierce. That woulc for us." Knew Time Short Lopez said LaPalme pitched first a ball, then a strike. He knew the time was close by looking at the clock "but I don't know what Napp's watch says. It mighl have been minutes away by his time." 36i 1 still think we're sll right' '.35s Lopez continued.
