Bu&ba Church To Phillies In Player Deal PHILADELPHIA, May . 24 IIP — The Philadelphia Phillies have surrendered Bubba Church, an original "whiz kid" and one of the National League's best .pitching prospects only a year ago, in a gamble they hope will add desperately- needed left-handed punch to their batting order. "We need the hitting." Manager Eddie Sawyer said of the deal in which the Phillies acquired outfielder Johnny Wyrostek and southpaw pitcher Kent Peterson from the Reds. 'We welcome any punch Wyrostek can give us." - Church, a medium-sized curve- bailer, is the fourth regular, performer of the Phillies' 1950 National League championship team ;to be traded. Second-baseman Mike Goliat was farmed to the minors in 1951. and outfielder Dick Sisler and catcher Andy Serninick were traded to the Reds last winter. Sawyer explained that Church's failure to get into shape /prompted the .trade''negotiations. "Bubba wasn't in shape in the South or coming North." Sawyer said. "He was a holdout and losi further time because of family illness." Wyrostek- who is 31, batted .311 for Cincinnati last year, although he hit only two homers and drove in only 61 inins. His average this year is .236. He is expected to take Runs batted in: Boyd 2. Weisen- over the regular left field job for By CARL LUNDQUIST The Brooklyn catcher, most NEW YORK.
