A Wrigley field paid throng of 9,377 cheered in vain for rookie lefty Bob Schultz, making his first Cub start. Before he was yanked in the ninth, Schultz had been touched for ofcly five hits--the Card total.

Staley twice pulled out of trouble with the bases loaded. * The Cards' star second sacker, Red Schoendienat, was felled by a foul ball that caromed into bis face, as tie attempted to bunt in the fifth inning.

DEFEATS BY If L PARNELL; STARS NEW YORK ,April 27 -- (AP) Dan Bucceroni of Philadelphia; handicapped by a deep gash over his left eye, dropped Dick Wagner three times tonight to get a unanimous 10-round decision over the Toppenish, Wash, battler at St. Nicholas Arena. Bucceroni weighed 178, Wagner 172, The butchered "Butcher Boy" dropped Wagner for* nine in the second and eight ! counts iff the fifth and eighth before 1,639 who paid $3,255. All three officials had Bucceroni on top by a wi'de margin. Judge Bert Grant had it 7-3, Judge Bill Recht 9-1 and Referee Harry Kessler 8-3-1. The A. P. card agreed with Kessler. Wagner was penalized the fifth round for three low blows, Bucceroni came out of a tangle in the second with blood gushing from a gash over his eye. It looked for a moment as if he would have to stop his man quickly to win. But trainer Jimmy Wilson did a great job closing the cut. After the third round it bled only occasionally but both boys and the ring were a gory mess at the end of a wild free swinging brawl. It was a battle of two contrasting styles with Wagner bulling inside and · the rangy Bucceroni swinging wide outside punches. Bucceroni seemed to run out of gas in the seventh, eighth and ninth but closed with a rush. He was knocked out by Irish Bob Murphy in his last start. Twen- ;y-three-year old Danny was start- ng up the comeback trail. He had ost a six rounder to Wagner in 1948. Ylr. Mill.

Marshall and Gordon, Ex- Giants, Lead Braves to Victory NEW YORK, April 27--(AP) A couple of ex-Giants, Willard Marshall and Sid Gordon, made life miserable for the New Yorkers today as they poled homers to lead the Boston Braves to a 7-3 triumph. Marshall's blast, a three-run poke that climaxed a five-run spree ic the sixth, put the Braves ahead and enabled them to capture their fourth straight victory. The Giants went down to tfceir ninth straight defeat. !Leo Durocher shook up his lineup like mad and for a while it looked like it was going to help. He put Hay Noble in to catch, reinstated Eddie Stanky at second and spotted Jack MaGuire in right field. Noble homered in the fourth and Mavjuire and Stanky hit four-bag- gers in the fifth to give the Giants 3-1 margin over lefty Warren Spahn* But the Braves caught up to Jim Hearn in the sixth. Before the inning 1 was over five runners had clattered across the plate. Singles by Sam Jethroe, Earl Torgeson and Bob Elliott, who tiad homered in th e seccod inning, sent one run home and Hearn to the showers In favor of Sheldon Jonee. Gordon's walk an T Walker Cooper's ground out drove in another run. Marshall then lined his homer into the right field seats for three runs. Gordon iced the cake with a four- bagger in the eigfith. Spahn, a 21-game winner last year, thus came up with his first win of the year on a five-hitter. He had lost two. Hearn was charged with his second loss against on* victory.
