Carroll Nips Churdan; Coon Rapids, Manning Post Wins Phils Take Two From Cards'; Hand Von McDaniel 1st Loss By JACK HAND The Associated Press The Phillies are trying for the National League jackpot by playing "double or nothing" with the rest of the league. By winning four double-headers in the last 10 days, the 50-1 shots of opening day now are only half a game off the pace. Snapping a losing streak July 1, the Phils have won 11 of their last 13. Curt Simmons and Jim Hearn handled the pitching Sunday as the usually light-hitting Phils hit five home runs and beat St. Louis twice .6-2 and 11-4. Von McDaniel, the 18-year-old $50,000 bonus baby, suffered his first major league defeat in the opener and Larry Jackson, the Cards' top winner, lost the second. Brooklyn dropped Milwaukee to third place, one game behind St. Louis, when Gil Hodges hit a two- run homer in the ninth for a 3-2 victory after successive doubles by Frank Torre-and Andy Pafko had given the Braves a tie-breaking run in the top of the ninth. Reds Snap Streak Cincinnati snapped its seven-* game losing streak, slugging Pittsburgh twice 9-6 and 12-4. New York outlasted Chicago 8-6 in 12 innings, winning on Willie Mays' two-run homer after Whitey Lockman's second home run of the day had tied the game in the ninth. Just when the American League appeared on the verge of becoming a race once more, the New York Yankees turned on a six-run Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Monday, July 15, 1957 rally to get an even break in Chicago. Yanks Bounce Back The Yanks bounced back from a 4-0 deficit to a 6-4 second-game victory on a grand slam homer by pinch hitter Bill Skowron. Billy Pierce's fine five-hit pitching had won the first for Chicago 3-1. Despite two home runs by Ted Williams, who displaced the Yanks Mickey Mantle as the American League leader with 25, the Boston Red Sox lost two to Cleveland. Joe Altobelli's sacrifice fly with the bases loaded won the first for Bob Lemon 3*2 and the Indians clobbered Boston pitching for 20 hits to take the second 17-4 lor Stan _Fitula. Tigers Get Rough Detroit prepared for the Yanks' visit by knocking off Baltimore twice 10-2 and 7-6 in 10 innings. Billy Hoeft hit two homers and pitched a seven-hitter in the first game and the second was won by Red Wilson's single after a damaging error by Jim Brideweser, Baltimore shortstop. Kansas City split a double with Washington in 100-degree heat. Julio Becquer's timely hitting helped Washington take the opener 4-1 for Camilo Pascual but the A's cut loose with a 17-hit barrage, including two ' homers by Irv Noren, in ah 11*3 second-game romp. Very Little Respect The Phillies showed little re­ spect for McDaniel, raking him for five runs and five hits .before he left for a pinch hitter a/ter four innings. Rip Repulski turned on his old Card mates with a three-run homer in the first in* ning. Ed Bouchee also homered for the Phils. Back-to-back home runs by Joe Lonnett and Chico Fernandez and Bouchee's second of the day were key blows in the second game. Brooklyn and Milwaukee played it close to the vest at 1-1 from the first inning until the ninth, when Pafko drove in a run with a double. After Gino Cimoli walked to open the ninth, Hodges hit Bob Buhl's first pitch into the left field stands. Red Schoendienst accounted for Milwaukee's first run with a homer. Cincinnati came from behind with six runs on eight singles in the seventh inning of the opener, winning for He"rsh Freeman In relief. Ted Kluszewski hit two homers and Smokey Burgess had one among the 10 hits in the second- game, in which Joe Nuxhall went all the way. , The Giants-Cubs struggle included six homers with two for Lockman and one each for Bobby Thomson and Mays of the Giants and Dale Long and Bob Speake for the Cubs. DETROIT'S SITE Literally, Detroit means "of the straits." Founded by Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac in 1701, the city is located on a strait between Lake St Clair and Lake Erie.

The Yanks really pulled one out Sunday when they rallied for six runs in the ninth inning to beat the Chicago White Sox, 6-4, after losing the first game of a doubleheader to Billy Pierce, 3-1. A grand slam pinch homer by Bill Skowron highlighted the rally after Sox pitchers had held the world champions to one run in 17 innings. Had the Sox held onto their four-run lead in the ninth, they would have cut New York's American League lead to one game, however, the Yanks managed to stay three games in front on Skowron's blow. Got The Idea "I was getting pretty mad," said Stengel after the game, "My boys weren't looking too good so I told them to raise 'em a little so those other guys can't make any more good catches. He (Skowron) got the idea"— and hit the homer." Dick Donovan was sailing along with a five-hit shutout until the ninth when Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra and Harry Simpson hit successive singles for one run. Jim .Wilson relieved Donovan and Hank Bauer's hard smash bounced off third baseman Sammy Esposito's glove for a single. Esposito. recovered the ball and drove for the bag on an attempted force but Sammy fell two inches short as Berra slid in safely. Turning Point This was the turning point since Wilson fanned Elston Howard with the bases loaded for the first out and Skowron came in to bat for Jerry Coleman. Had Esposito made the force play, there would have been two outs and Skowron would not have, batted. "I'd have used Joe Collins with two out," said Stengel. "But Collins has a bad leg and with one out I couldn't use him because he might have hit one on the ground and that would have been a double play. Now you see how my system works when we have to win in late innings." Too Much Muscle Looking over at. Skowron, Stengel muttered "muscle, muscle, muscle." Skowron didn't know, what kind of a pitch he hit and didn't much less care. "I never know," said Moose. "All I know is it felt good. That's only the second grand slam I've hit in regular play. The other one also was a pinch hit against Philadelphia in Shibe Park in 1954. I had one in the World Series buU guess that doesn't count." The White Sox clubhouse resembled a graveyard. "It's heartbreaking," someone said and Manager Al Lopez nodded in agreement. "We played real good ball until the ninth inning and I still say we'll catch them," said Lopez. "It would have been easier, though, if we had won this one." Loop Standings w Pet. OB J00 .455 .400 .400 .100 4 4* 7*4 BURNS "PROVE FATAL DELAND, Fla.

The winner's time for the race was 2 hours, 55 minutes, 33.32 seconds. It beat the International Motor Contest Assn.'s listed mark of 3.06:16.50 for that distance over a flat half-mile track set in 1951 by Eddie Anderson of Chicago. Second place in the grind went to Johnny Beauchamp, 35, of Harlan, while third place money in the total $5,250 purse went to Keokuk veteran, Don White. The only casualty in the race was Harold (Dubby) Harrison, 45- year-old Topeka, Kan., driver who fractured a shoulder and arm when his car flipped over a wall going through the 140th lap.

Leahy has only lost one state tournament match in four years— 1 21 -hole quarterfinal decision to John Leichty of Iowa City in 1955 at Cedar Rapids. He has won 21 matches in the same span.

Jerry Ibach Records His 19th in Row COON RAPIDS - Jerry Ibach recroded his 19th consecutive pitching victory . as ' he hurled Coon Rapids to a 7-2 decision over Audubon here Sunday night.

With a new pitcher, Roger Mahnke, on the mound, the Eagles battled vainly to overcome an early deficit. They were paced at the plate by Kenneth King with three hits, including a triple, and by Don Koster with a pair of safeties. Mahnke, an Iowa State College student from Early, limited Manning to six hits, but the Blue Sox scored six runs in the first five innings.

The slump-ridden Carroll catcher went Into' the game with a .118 batting Average. In four appearances Sunday night he lined two singles to center, hit into a force and walked to raise his average to a .162 mark. Rothmeyer also scored the tie run in the seventh and thereby helped to make third base coach Frank Beck a prophet. At the end of the sixttu Beck said, "Rothmeyer wi}l get on and Bob Simpson will drive-him home." That prophecy not only came through, it also set the stage for the game winning rally in the eighth. At the start of the sev- erfth, Rothmeyer coaxed a base on balls off Chuck Wills, the Churdan ace. Den Burgess sacrificed the'runner U&second.and Simpson stroked a hit'into centerfield. Winning Rally After Sam Long struck out to start the eighth, veteran Bill Burgess lined a pitch into centerfield. Rich Bengfort was victimized on strikes. Then Ronnie Hested kept the Carroll rally alive. With the runner breaking for second, Hested hit a shallow infield hopper behind the runner that neither the pitcher nor second baseman could handle in time to catch fleet-footed Ronnie at first. * That was when Rothmeyer blasted a sinking liner into centerfield and hustling Bill Burgess sped to the plate from second base with the vital run. Bases-Loaded Jam Carroll's* first tally in the fourth, came as a result of an error when it appeared Wills was about to extricate himself from a bases-loaded> and no-out jam, Cletus Heinrichs led off with a hit and Ray Blankenship was hit by'a pitched ball. Long drove a grounder beyond the grasp of the short stop and Heinrich was held up at third by the'coach when a fast relay was made back to the infield. Bill Burgess lifted a high pop to the second baseman for the first out and Bengfort popped to the firstbaseman for that second out. Hested chopped a grounder back to third and was safe on Pier- rick's throwing error as Heinrich scored the first Carroll tally. Held at Bay Don-Burgess held Churdan at bay after a two-run first inning as he scattered eight hits over the nine inning route. His most serious difficulty was experienced in the first inning. With one awajv Don Wallace singled to center. Paul Trost drove a sinking fly beyond second base that fell in front on onrushing Sammy Long. The alert Carroll centerfielder speared the* ball on the run and fired a strike to second to-, force Wallace and deprive Trost of a base hit. ,Jim Reagan kept the rally alive with a single to right. Bob Vogel singled to .short center and Trost scored. Rea*gan rounded second and broke for third and Long's hurried throw sailed over the head of Simpsdp at third to allow Reagan to continue to . the plate with' the second Churdan run. Saved Run from Scoring A great play by *Ronnie .Hested got Burgess out of a jam in the third inning. With one away, Wallace singled io right. Trost followed with a single to center and that moved Wallace to second. Reagan whiffed for the second out. Reagan^drove a long single to right field and Hested's perfect throw to the plate caught Wallace trying to score from second base. Ed Sabus led off for Churdan in the bottom of the fifth with a double but was stranded at second when Wallace filed to left, Trost struck out and Raagar filed to center, In the eighth inning, Wallace led off with a triple to rlght'center. He was stranded at third as Trost popped to second base, 'Reagan struck out and Vogel popped ta second base. It was one of the fastest games the Merchants have played, requiring just one hour and fifty minutes. • Box Scores Simpson, 3b ——— Heinrich. If Blankenship, 2b _:. Long, cf B.
