2 The OTTAWA HERALD | Monday. May 4, 19591 Jimmy Dykes Puts Detroit ./ Into Action By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer It's too e*rly to call Jimmy Dykes a mirecle manager but the 62 • year • old, cigar-smoking Sir James must have a Midas touch. Look what the likeable little round man did just 24 hours after he had been appointed the Detroit manager. He took a sadly disorganized Detroit team, brought an outfielder—Charlie Maxwell—out of the managerial doghouse and a pitcher—Don Mossi—out of the overworked bullpen and proceeded to lead the cellar-dwelling Tigers to a stunning doub'.eheader sweep over the New York Yankees. The scores of Dykes' auspicious debut were 4-2 and 8-2. , Thus, in one day, Dykes won as many games as his predecessor, Bill Norman, had won in the pre vious 17. Giving reeling ball clubs a shot in the arm is nothing new for Dr. Dykes. Last August 14, he succeeded Birdie Tebbetts as manag er of the .last place Cincinnati Reds and directed them to fourth place finish. Dykes, of course, didn't pitch and didn't hit. The pitching wa taken care of by Frank (Yankee Killer) Lary and Mossi; the hitting by Maxwell. Lary and Moss: allowed only eight hits apiece The first game triumph was Lary's 17th in 22 lifetime deci sions with the Yankees. He whipped them seven times las year. Maxwell walloped four consecu tive home runs to equal a major league record. Three of them came in the second game, during which he drove 'in six runs. Be fore Sunday, the left-handed Max well had hit only one homer, in pinch hit role. He had lost his lef field job to Larry Doby becausi of a batting slump. The Yankees, who now have los five in succession and nine o their last ten, now rest in seventl place, 6*4 games behind the Amer ican League leading Cleveland which split a doubleheader wit! Washington. After Jim Grant ha< pitched the Indians to a 5-0 tri umph in the opener, Hal Grigg of Washington outpitched vetera: Mike Garcia 3-1 in - the nightcap. Get Second County Title TOMY LEE REACHES DERBY WINNER'S CIRCLE—Winner of the run for the roses — and in winner's circle — is Tomy Lee, with jockey Willie Shoemaker up. Holding Kentucky Derby winner's head is owner Fred Turner Jr. Veeck Plans To Keep Swapping CHICAGO (AP) — "We're going to keep trading until we come.up with some he".p," said Bill Veeck after he swapped Ray Boone for Harry Simpson of Kansas City Sunday. Veeck, who controls the Chicago White Sox.with his 54 per cent of stock, was dickering with Baltimore Manager Paul Richards after his Sox dropped a 4-2 decision in 10 innings. The Simpson trade was the see ond in two days for the Sox who earlier sent pitcher Don Rudolph and outfielder Lou Skizas to Cincinnati for Del Ennis. Boone, came to Chicago from Detroit last May. Lee Harrison Says... Shoemaker Gets Much Credit For Winning Race By ORLQ ROBERTSON Associated Press Sports Writer LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP)—Willie Shoemaker made the right choice when he selected Tomy Lee over Sword Dancer • as his Kentucky Derby mount. The English-bred Tomy Lee beat Sword Dancer by a nose. But had the four-time national riding champion selected Sword Dancer, he still would have been right. That was the opinion of trainers today after one of the most thrilling of the 85 derbies at Churchill Downs. Tomy Lee's 71-year-old trainer Frank Childs, said, "That eigh inches (the margin of victory) makes a great horse out of Tomy Lee. However, I think that if we had switched jockeys (with Shoemaker on Sword Dancer) Ihe other horse might have won. I'd Kansas city have to give it to him." J^...^."If you don't get Shoemaker it ^asriingion' ooks as if you might as well not un," said Moody Jolley, trainer Detroit' f Dunce, who finished seventh in le 17-horse field. "Boland had le race won but Shoemaker utrode him." Elliott Burcli. trainer of Sword Jancer, icfused to answer when asked if his horse would have woi ad Shoemaker been in the sad die in place of Bill Boland. Burc earned only last Monday lha Shoemaker had decided on Torn; ,ee instead of Sword Dancer Shoe also could have ridden Roya Orbit. "I know our horse, runs muc better for Shoemaker," said Dr Jock Jacoy, West Coast veterinar an who attends Royal Orbit. Other trainers also said the ;hought Shoemaker would have won on either of the first two lorses. 'And that isn't taking anything away from Boland," said one. 'He's a great hand rider. But Shoemaker has that little something extra." Pictures of the race show that Shoemaker shifted his whip to his left hand in the final yards, gavej Tomy Lee three cracks and then] literally lifted the Texas-owned' colt under the wire with a great hand ride. Boland claimed he was othered by Tomy Lee several mes in the stretch but the towards, after reviewing the pic- ures and holding up the official ecision for 18 minutes, said there as not enough contact to warrant hanging the order of the finish. First Landing, the 1958 two- ear-old champion and a slight hoice over Tomy Lee, trailed by nother 2Vi lengths for third money. Despite the respect for Shoe- laker, a number of the horses vho trailed Tomy Lee will take nother shot at Fred Turner Jr.'s ce in the Preakness May 16. 'hey include Sword Dancer, First Banding, Royal Orbit and perhaps Dunce and Open View. As for the derby, Tomy Lee ran he 1V4 miles in the fast time of -.02 1-5, earned a net of $119,650 or the second richest purse in he race's history and ran his otal earnings to $371,617. He paid $9.40. Get Your Car Ready for Vacation-Time We Have Factory Trained Specialists Who Can Take Care of...

Aaron is batting an even .50C with 36 hits in 72 times at bat He is tied with teammate Eddie Mathews for the league's horn run leadership with 8; he leads in hits, is third in runs scored with IS, tied for third with 8 doubles and tied for fifth with 20 runs batted in. His slugging percentage is an incredible .972. If he continues even near his pace, Aaron is a good bet to capture the triple crown—home runs, runs batted in and batting percentage. He has won all three titles but never in one year. Cincinnati and Los Angles were in a virtual tie with the Giants for second place following the split of their doubleheader. The Reds won he first game 6-3 and the Dodgers ;ook the second, 7-1. Chicago maintained its .500 lev' el, dividing a pair with PhiladeV phia.
