EIGHT THE NEWS--HEWPORT, R. L, SATURDAY, JULY 3,19154 Grantland Rice The Pennant Race NEW YORK --Once more the B'ourlh of July rolls around to divide the men from the boys, the sheep from the goats. The four major marking stations in a pennant race are Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day and the last turn of the stretch. Around Memorial Day it looked as · if the National League would have the hottest race in its history. Six clubs were only a game or two apart. But as someone-has said -- "Hope springs eternal in the baseball breast, only to wither and die out before late June." By late June practically the entire league had folded up, with the exception of the Giants and Dodgers. The Braves, Phillies, Cardinals, Redlegs and Cubs started collapsing like a flock of punctured balloons. Fragments strewed the field. The National League approaches tlic Fourth of "July with only two survivors left. If any of the last six clubs can beat out the Giants or Dodgers and win the National League pennant, you can make a note that I can get out my golf clubs and defeat Ed Furgol, Ben Ho*gan and Sammy Snead. The American League race is almost as bad a shambles, The only difference is the American League has three survivors left against two 'for the National. You may remember early in April the 16 clubs that were moving into action so bravely? They might not win a pennant bul you \voulcl bee them up there around the top. Out of the 16 only 11 have blown. There are still five Ic'U. The trouble is the five left arc the ones thai are usually in the hunt. The Recllcgs and Tigers in separate leagues came out vuth a rush this season. Now they are far out of it. There was more reason for the Red Sox uollapsmg. When Boudreau lost Ted Williama and Mel Parnell, his main offensive weapon and his main defensive star, hip goose was, cooked lor 1954. There Is one rather dark stain on baseball's white 1 banner. There arc five clubs in the race and three o£ them are in New York and Brooklyn. This is sour news to the western trade 1 . For five years now the Yankees, Dodgers, Giants and Phillies have been dominating the scene. Since 195(7, it has been Yankees, Dodgers and Giants, They have taken over the last lour world series. In the American League, the Yankees have taken over the entire show. This time the Indians find the White Sox have a good chance to win. Thai still leaves the Dodgers and Giants shooting for the National League flag. I thought the Cardinals would make a much closer tight of il this year. They have one of the best hitting teams of many years, But their pitching lias been mildewed. The loss of Bobby Thomson, plus the absence of John Antonelli, wrecked the Braves. This trade so far has been worth at least eight games to the Giants. Figure it any way you want as the golden Fourth rolls in, the two flag races now belong, to five clubs. Orio of the other 11 may unfurl a micaclo and slip by, but if so they haven't many dates to waste. Dobson Quits Baseball After 14 Years BOSTON UP)--Veteran righthand- er Joe Dobson, who pitched in 34 major league seasons for the Cleveland Indians, the Chicago White Sox and the Boston Red Sox, has quit baseball. Dobson resigned last night as pitching coach for the Red Sox, a post ho had held since May 8 when he retired from active pitching duty. The 37-year-old Oklahoman, who makes his home in Necdharn, Mass., said lie has no immediate plans. He added that ho docs not intend to remain in baseball. Dobson, who began Ills career with Cleveland in 1939 and was traded to Boston two seasons later, was one of two Red Sox remaining from the 1946 club that won the American League pennant. Tec! Williams is the other. He pitched in three World Series games that yean against the Si. Louis Cardinals and was credited with one victory as the Sox dropped the series four games to three. 'Little Mo * Wins, 6-2,7-5 In Wimbledon WIMBLEDON, England Iff) -Maureen Connolly of San Difgd, Calif., won the Wimbledon woman's singles title tor the third straight year today by defeating Louise Brodgh of Beverly Hills, 6-2, 7-5. Miss Brough also is a three- time winner of the Wimbledon crown, reigning in 1948-1949 and 1950. It was the ninth straight year that an All-American final was presented in the women's singles division of the famous meet. Jaroslav Drobny, wandering Czech who nrw calls Egypt home, won the men's singles title yesterday by defeating Kpn Rosewall of Australia. Seven Americans and three Australians are scheduled on today's program, final of the 1954 championships. Miss Connolly, who has indicated she may pass up future Wimble- dons because of her coming marriage, played methodical rather than spectacular tennis today. Only in the last set was there any doubt about who would win. And that doubt lasted onl" a few minutes. Miss Brough jumped into a 5-2 lead in games but Little Mo turned on the steam and that was the end of the challenge. It was, however, the first time Miss Connolly had been carried to extra games in the tourney. The match lasted 55 minutes. ·Joe Dobsou Big Bass Reported Caught From Brenton's Reef Here Robs Couture of Fall River caught a big striped bass off Brenton's Reef last night, which may measure in the GO-pound class wheir 11 is weighed. This morning, 'Couture said he had not got around to putting the fish on the scales, but he believed it would be a hefty competitor in Newport area fishing statistics. Couture made the catch with retf and reel from a bass boat. The biggest bass landed in'these waters was in 1936, when Arthur S. Clarke took a 65-pounder nt Beavcrtail. Last summer, John R. Escobar of Middletown landed a 5954-pound specimen, Butler Leads Doyle A. C. Softballers Over Grange George "Buzzy" Butler continued his spectacular batting as Doyle A. C. defeated the Portsmouth Grange, 16-3, last evening at Freebody Park in a Class B softball game. Butler's consecutive streak was stopped at 12 hits, but he had four for the game. George Council, Doyle pitcher, had three hits. R. Pockham and G. Busse e a c h slapped two hits for Portsmouth. Butler, a clever bunler, singled his first time up, but struck out his second. He added three singles and grounded to D. Atwood, Grange pitcher, on his other time at bat. The Grange scored its three runs in the third on walks to W. Zorbus and G. Elshant and doubles by D. Coor and W. Smith. There was not an extra base hit among Doyle's 16 safeties.

Paced by Charley Lindborg's four hits, the Dionysus broke the bonds of a batting slump with 13 bingles. The poorly supported Joe Viau, brightest pitching star in state schoolboy circles, was the losing twirler, Viau was the third Broadway pitcher, Al Grande pasted three hits and Mollo Sanfilippo and Dan Condry each had two hits for the Broadways. The Dionysus had a 3-2 lead swinging into the sixth, Then Broadway picked up two runs on a walk to Richie MaGeo, Condi'y's single, an error and Peter Dugan's single. But Broadway's temporary 4-S lead wont down the drain in the seventh. Viau was wild, walking' two, hitting one. Those control lapses combined with an error and singles by Lindberg and Del Grosso helped the Dionysus roll up four runs for a 7-4 advantage. Three walks and an error gave Broadway tw'o runs in the last of the seventh. And in the eighth il tied the score when Sanfilippo, a walker was sacrificed along by John Viau and scored on Grancle's single. In the ninth the Dionysus won the game whan Del Grosso's third strike escaped Lcndrum, Kaminskas sacrificed and Rlchcy singled.

He doesn't work often any more and when he does he lias to rely on craft and wile instead of'blaz- ing speed. But he continues to be successful and might very wclF get the call in a long series. Cleveland lias been in only one World Series since Feller joined the club. He lost twice in 1948 to the old Boston Braves. Last night lie turned in his fifth victory o£ the season, checking the Chicago White Sox 3-2 on four hits in the opener of a twilight night doubleheader. The Indians grabbed the nightcap, too, by a 5-4 margin and dumped the challenging Chicagoans into third place. "I might'have gotten a pasting except for a- couple of good breaks," Feller admitted after the game. "I didn't have much of anything except pretty fair control." But Feller got some pital help from Larry Doby who contributed a 400 foot home run to tie the score in the- sixlh inning and then singled home the second run in the eighth. Doby was the big Run in the second game as well. His 13th homer of the season came with the score tied and two men aboard in the fifth. The New York Yankees crept in the side door into second place although they split their 13 consecutive Ooublchcader. After beating Washington 6-5 in 11 innings they bowed 7-4 to rookie Dean Stone who won his seventh against a single loss. The Yankees haven't apturcd a twin bill since August oflast season. The New York Liants stretched their National League lead to five full games. They whipped Pittsburgh 9-5 with a five-run rally in the seventh inning and Brooklyn lost its fourth straight, this time 7-C to the Philadelphia Phillies. In other National League action Milwaukee beat Cincinnati twice, 11-4 and 2-1 and Chicago edged St. Louis 7-6, the seventh time- the cubs have tripped the Cardinals in nine starts. Elsewhere in the American League Boston thumped Philadelphia 8-4 and Baltimore used a three-hit shutout by Joe Coleman to turn back Detroit 2-0, The Yankees' first game victory cume after Washington had moved into a 5-4 lead in the top of the ninth. Yogi Berra singled home the run in the last of the n i n t h , Edwards' Victor In Babe Ruth Tilt With John Franco firinfi a three hit, IS strike-out shutout, Edwards' blankal Pine Hill, 4-0, in a Babe Ruth League game at the Newport Mold. Tom's Service St?tion and Ihe Newport Lions played a suspended game with the Lions ahead, 4-3, in the sixth inning. The tilt will be completed on Augusi 6. Kdwards' victory rapapullcd them into third place from their previous ninth place position. Franco scored two of his team's four runs mid .stole throe bases for the winners. Dave Le Favour socked a single and a double to pace Edwards' b a l l i n g attack. The Indians' hits, all singles, vvcro made by John Kelly, Don Wyatl and Bob Correlra. Losing pi I chcr Lloyd Beaudettc allowed only six hits, but walked six and wns given poor support. In the Tom's--Lions game, the suspension came in the sixth inning, With Tom's Manuel Peters at bal, two outs, and rujiners on second and third, Fetors swung and missed a second strike. Thinking he hud missed a third strike and noting that the catcher for the Lions, Byron Carroll, had dropped Ihe ball, Peters look off for first ba.sc. At this, Carroll heaved the bal past first base and two runners scored. After an argument which followed, Umpires Mac-Donald and Jacob decided to call the game and to replay the rest of Die ( i l l on August 6, Peters will be at bat with two slries and the rest of the situation will be (he same. The Lions' Pelei- Rector pitched and came through in the clutch again in the 11th with a single lhat scored Bob Cevv with the winning tally. The Yankees found themselves five runs behind aftex- 2'^ innings of the second game and couldn't catch up against the Senators. The Giants and Dodgers, fresh from battling each other for three days, both tried rookie pitchers last night and neitherone survived. Ramon Monzant threw three no- hit innings for the Giants in Pittsburgh but had to be yanked during a foui-run Pittsburgh rally in the fourth.

Pete Wojey, just up from Mobile, started for Brooklyn and lasted until the fifth in Philadelphia. The big blow for he Phillies, however, was a three run homer by Del Ennis off Clem Labine in the eighth. Home runs produced the Milwaukee victories. Eddie Mathews hit two in the first game when Henry Aaron and Joe Adcock got one apiece. In Ihe second game Del Crandall's fifth inning horner oft Fred Baczewslti provided the winning margin.

Ills losses were 4-6 against Philadelphia, 0-1 against Chicago, 3-4 ngalnst Cleveland and 1-2 Against Detroit.
