Four Hurlers Account For 15 Baltimore Wins Joe Gordon Complains Opponents Play Best Against His Indians NEW YORK (AP)-Joe Gordon, headmaster of the surprising Cleveland Indians, is getting a whiff of the upper air of first place in the American League but he still has a complaint. "So far nobody has played poorly against us," Gordon said while preparing to lead his club against the New York Yankees tonight. "We .hear of other teams making mistakes here and there but guys like Al Smith, Gene Woodling and Del Ennis kill us with star catches." The Indians are riding atop the herd, a game and a half in front of the second-place Chicago White Sox. They dropped a doubleheader to the Pale Hose Sunday anc so now they have to pull themselves together again. Gordon was unhappy, but not crushed over the twin setback at the hands of (right now) the Tribe's No. 1 rival. Herb Score, who fanned 13 Yankees the only time he faced them this season, was one of the victims against the White Sox. Since licking the Yanks he has been wild. "They drive him crazy," ob served Gordon. "They're a go-go club and they go wild on the bases. Score keeps worrying abou them on the bases' and he can' 1 get the ball over. "But pitchers change character so quickly, I don't think anyone really knows how to handle them You just pray."
