Milwaukee Lead Cut to 2Vi Games Over OnrushingCards By JACK RAND The Associated Press Are the Milwaukee Braves go- tag to blow it again? Once more the Braves must ask themselves that searching question as the pressure mounts in the National League race. In 13 short days, an 8^-game lead has shrunk to 2% fames. Encouraged at the sight of the staggering Braves, the charging St. Louis Cardinals have won 9 of their last 11. In that same period Milwaukee has won only 3 of 11. Day by day the three-game series between the two clubs in Milwaukee Sept. 23, 24, 25 looks more likely. Yanks Beyond Reach The American League race, on the other hand, appears to be over. The New York Yankees, with a 5H-game lead and only 10 to play, should be beyond the reach of the persistent Chicago White Sox. Warren Spahn, shooting for his 20th victory, coddled a 2-1 lead into the ninth inning Sunday only to have Philadelphia tie the score in the ninth and finally beat Milwaukee in the 10th 3-2. After two hits sent Spahn to the showers, Ted Kazanski, a .255 hitter, singled home the winning run. Musial in Action With Stan Musial back in the starting lineup and chipping in with three hits in six trips, the Cardinals thumped Pittsburgh twice 9-6 and 11-3 behind Herm Wehmeier and Sam Jones. Two big Innings did the trick — six runs in the fifth inning of the opener and five in the first inning of the second game. Cincinnati slammed four home runs, chasing Don ^Newcombe, in an 11-6 romp over Brooklyn Hal Jeffcoat hit one of the homers and took an 11-2 lead into the ninth before he fell apart. Cubs Sweep Pair Ed Haas, a rookie outfielder from Fort Worth, delivered a • , ,» Timet Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, Soph 16, 1957 pinch single with the bases loaded and the score tied for the Chicago Cubs' 7-6 edge over the New York Giants. The rookie's hit made Itl a double-header sweep for the Cubs who won the opener 6-2 behind veteran Bob Rush. Willie Mays had four hits for the Giants including his 34th homer, to hike his average to .339. The Yanks hopped on their 'cousins" from Kansas City 5-3 and 3-0. Tommy Byrne's three-run pinch homer did the job in the opener. Don Larsen pitched his first shutout since his perfect game in the 1956 Wo ^d Series when he held the A's to' three singles in the second game. Tony Kubek and Harry Simpson hom­ ered. White Sox Stay Alive Chicago trailed going into the ninth but scored three against Washington for a 3-1 victory on the two-hit pitching of Bob Keegan and rookie Barry Latman. Earl Torgeson's two-run double was the most important hit in the rally. Jim Lemon's 450-foot homer was (he only Washington score. Jim Bunning. won his 19th for Detroit* 7-1 with a five-h i 11 e r against Boston, positively eliminating the Red Sox from the pennant race. Al Kaline's 23rd. homer started the Tigers on the way to their 4-3 second-game victory for Frank Lary. v Orioles in Fifth Baltimore moved Into fifth place ahead of Cleveland by taking a pair from the Indians 5-4 in 16 innings and 4-3. A wild throw by Vic Wertx on an • attempted double play gave the Orioles the first game,,after Joe Caffie's homer tied the score for Cleveland in the ninth and an Indian triple play; snuffed out a Baltimore ninth-inning rally. Jim Busby's catch of a potential three- run homer saved the second game in the eighth Inning. Milwaukee appeared to have its game in hand Mm Spahn holding a one-run lead in the ninth. However, a pinch single by Willie Jones, a single by Richie Ashburn and Chico Fernandez's safe bunt quickly loaded ' the • bases. • The tying run scored as Ed Bouchee hit into a double play. Bouchee's 16th homer had given the Phils a run in the fourth. Relief Hurler Fails After two hits off Spahn, Manager Fred Haney called on Bob Trpwbridge, who yielded the winning hit to Kazanski. Relief man i Dick Farrell was the winner, Ke/i Boyer and Walker Cooper hit; home runs for St. Louis during a five-run spurt in the fifth inning of the first game. Wally Moon hit two In the second game. Neither Wehmeier nor Jones .lasted tha route as the Cards hung defeats on Ronnie Kline and Art Swanion. The Yanks' Bob Turley trailed/ Kansas City 3-0 on homers by Bob Cerv and Bob Martyn (his first In the m a j o r s) when the Yanks bounced back with five in the seventh. Three straight singles brought one run and Byrne's pinch homer added three mora. Hank Bauer's 17th homer finished off loser Jack Urban. Yanks Hope Braves Win; Bigger Gate NEW YORK Ufi — The New York Yankees are worried —about Milwaukee. They're not afraid of meeting the Braves in the World Series. They're afraid they won't meet! them. "What's the matter with those guys in Milwaukee?" one Yankee asked today. "Don't they want to ; >lay us? They had the thing all ocked up and it looks like somebody stole the key." With one or two exceptions, all the Yankee players are rooting for the Braves. The reason is obvious. County Stadium in Milwaukee seats some 45,000. Busch Stadium in St. Louis holds only 30,000. That's a difference of around $350,000 for the three games in the National League park. Ohio State Will Open Up Attack With Diversified Split-T Plays (Following is another in a series of Big Ten football prospects by Jerry Liska, Midwest AP sports editor, who is making a flying tour of conference camps) By JERRY LISKA COLUMBUS, Ohio iff! - Coach Woody Hayes, while still proud of "dull" style football that gave Ohio State perfect Big Ten seasons in 1954 and 1955, is going to open up the Buckeye attack a bit this season. Beyond admitting the 1957 Bucks will pass more than last season, Hayes is keeping secret what diversity he is planning for his split-T team which lost six regulars from last season. "If you were fans," the chatty Hayes winks at sports writers, "I'd tell you spend $4.00 (for a ticket! and find out what we have new. Seriously, we plan a change other than more passing. We have to diversify some." Expected Slump Last season, the Buckeyes fash- toned a 6-3 overall record and 4-2 in the Big Ten for a fourth-place tie with Michigan State. That was an expected slump after the departure of Howie (Hopalong)' Cassady, who sparked Ohio's 1954 and 1955 title drives. Hayes, who must develop a new quarterback and capable reserves j down the line, has no apologies I for the possession-type football ' which goes with his basic split T. ! Maybe Ohio State's attack has ; been dull, as some say, snapped Hayes, starting his seventh standpoint. It grinds out the yards and gets you down to the goal' line. People don't kick too much, if you get the ball across that goal line." Won't Go Overboard There is no liklihood that Haye? will have his two quarterback prospects, Frank Kremblas, and Andy Okulovich, both labeled potentially fine passers, go overboard on a throwing game. When Hayes speaks of passing more than last year, ht isn't threatening an aerial circus. The Bucks last season threw only 50 aerials, completing 15, with now- graduated quarterback Frank Ellwood having a 7 for 20 mark. If Hayes has the same luck breaking in the inexperienced Kremblas and Okulovich he did in unveiling Ellwood, his quarterback problem won't be large. Hayes has the knack of instilling great confidence in his signal-callers. (Next: Purdue) Eddie Arcaro was the first modern rider enshrined in the Jockeys Hall of Fame. 2 Gold Medals Brought Home By Wernimont Dennis Wernimont, who won two of the seven gold medals picked up £y the United States in the recent Silent Olympics in Italy, returned here Sunday for a short rest The 19-year-old. standout athlete will enroll in Gallaudet College in Washington, D. C. on Oct. 1. his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Werhi­ mont, said Monday.

Wernimont was given a bronze medal for a third-place finish in the 200-meter dash with a :23 time.

The Braves' bats became silent! right after Labor Day when they led by 8% games. Sunday they 1 lost their eighth in 11 starts when defeated 3-2 in 10 innings by the Philadelphia Phillies. The second- place St. Louis Cardinals gained priceless ground by grabbing a twin bill from the Pittsburgh Pirates. Gloomy Players In the dressing room, his gloomy players grouped around him, Haney declared, "We're still going to win." "But we've got to get some hits," he said as it was noted the Braves collected only six runs and 19 hits in their last four games, three of them consecutive defeats which equaled the club's longest losing string of the season. Wrong Combination The little manager has revamped his batting order and welcomed back two of his injured regulars — Joe Adcock and Johnny Logan — in his hunt for hits and runs, but he admitted he hasn't found the right combination. "How do I know why we aren't getting any hits?" Haney asked a questioner. "If I knew the answer, I'd put a stop to this slump right now." Hs added. "We're overdue to break out of it. And if just one guy starts hitting, the rest will follow like sheep." Recall Prise Hands In a move to bolster the sagging club, the Braves called up immediately after the game three .of their prize farm hands from Wichita in the American Assn. Milwaukee purchased outright the contract of outfielder Ray Shearer, the association's Rookie of the Year. Also scheduled to report today were a pair of right-handed pitchers, former bonus baby Joe Jay and Carlton Willey, the association's Most Valuable Player with a 21-6 record.

A rifle bullet ricocheted off water in the river and struck Collison in the side. Although the wound was not believed serious, Collison nevertheless was hospitalized. His condition was described as good Monday morning by the attending physician. * • * RECORD CATCH: Jerome L. Koster, of Breda, caught a 16 - pound nine - ounce silver muskie at Big Lake, Minn., a week ago. Koster's catch was the largest muskie caught at Tranquilla Resort this year. He was fishing with four other Breda anglers. * * » TIEFENTHALER BACK: Verle Tiefenthaler, former star pitcher for St. Bernard's in Breda, returned last week from Muskogee, Okla., where he posted a very creditable 17-8 mark in professional baseball this year. Tiefenthaler, a Giant farmhand, stayed out of the pro ranks a year allow an ailing shoulder to get better. His record this year speaks for the wisdom of that decision. . * * * GAME NOTES: The offensive blocking by sophomore Floyd Wilkens was exceptionally good, this observer thought, in the 3442 Drake victory over Iowa Teachers in Des Moines on Saturday. His work on defense also looked good and proved that the former all-stater from Carroll is an exponent of the hard-driving- body-contact school of football'. Larry Sabus, another Carroll High standout, was on the opposite side of the scrimmage line in Des Moines on Saturday. His defensive play was particularly good, but on offense it sometimes was difficult to ascertain what was supposed to happen as a green Teacher team was unable to mount a diversified offensive. A very weak passing attack by the Tutors restricted the efforts of Sabus. Cards Order Tickets and Scout Yonks By DON ROTH ST. LOUIS WV-The St. Louis Cardinals, flushed by a doubleheader sweep and bolstered by the return of the injured Stan Mulial, Sunday ordered World Series tickets printed and stuck two scouts on- the trail of the New York Yankees. The Car.ds' are only 2 games shy of front-running Milwaukee, which knuckled under to Philadelphia 3-2 Sunday while St. Louis swept Pittsburgh 9-6 and 11-3. The Cards — both the players and the front office — feel the club is now in position for a do-it- yourself drive to the pennant. No longer do they have to rely on the help of other clubs. Expect to Win "We expect to do it." General Manager Frank Lane said. "They can't afford to make many slips or we'll be right there." said Manager Fred Hutch-• inson. "Now we have a chance to do it on our own, and if we don't— then what the ...." Immediately ahead, Tuesday and Wednesday, are two games with Brooklyn. Hutch said the third-place Bums will be tough. Crucial Series Looking farther ahead, the St Louis skipper predicted the pennant will be» decided in the Cardinals' three-game series at Milwaukee Sept. 23-24-25. "It looks like it might all center on those games," he said. Musial tacked two points onto his National League batting lead in his return to the starting lineup after 20 games. He had S-for-6, giving him a .342 mark.
