PAGE SIXTEEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1953 Pennant Fever Grips St. Louis Showdown Series Opens With Dodgers By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (AP) — Pennant feverish St. Louisan s, excited by the Cardinals' spectacular September surge, were singing "The Yanks Are Coming" today. They didn't mean the Dodgers, who arrived to engage the red-hot Redbirds in a vital three-game series opening tonght that could decide the National League pennant. The reference, of course, was to the World Series with the American League champions, so sure were these mad Missourians that their beloved Redblrds were going to overtake Los Angeles. Not since 1942 when the Cards roared from behind to overtake the Dodgers has this city seen anything like this. The swirl of excitement caused by this unbelievable stretch run that has produced 19 victories in 20 games and trimmed the Dodgers' first place lead from seven games to one, has even engulfed the normally phlegmatic Stan Musial. "What do you think? What do you think?" Musial kept asking visiting reporters who had come from all parts of the country to ask exactly that question of Stan The Man. "I've never been on a club that has won 19 of 20 before," said the 42-year-old super star whose Cardinal years date back to 1941. The Dodgers were anything but red hot compared to : the .sizzling Cardinals, who extended their latest winning streak to 10 games Sunday with a 3-2 and 5-0 sweep of the Milwaukee Braves, behind the excellent pitching of veteran Lew Burdette and young Ray Sadecki. Burdette Comes Through in Clutch ST. LOUIS (AP)-Lew Burdette lay on the rubbing table in a corner of the Cardinal clubhouse exhausted and happy. Unlike the hero of a fiction thriller, he was not exhausted be- movement nor happy be- words. He had plenty of CARDINAL SLUGGERS ST.

Jim Ringo said it, the first time Walt Alston's faltering first placers dropped a 6-1 decision to Philadelphia giving them only a split in the four-game series with the Phils. Although they've won 12 of their last 18, they have given up six games to = the Cards during that stretch, enough to cause the Dodgers to recall last year, when they allowed a four-game lead to dissipate in the final week of the campaign. Keane's pitching selections remained according to plan. Right- hander Ernie Broglio (16-8) and such a phrase had been utterec 2-2 against the Dodgers, will pitch tonight. He will be opposed by southpaw Johnny Podres, (13-10) and 0-1 against the Cards.

In the American Football League, Houston edged Denver 20 14 and San Diego got by Bostoi 17-13 Saturday, and Oakland bea Buffalo 35-17 Sunday. Kansas Citj and New York were idle. The big bomb was dropped in Green Bay. The powerful Packers gunning for a third straigh league title and beaten only once last season, never got untracked against the Bears' crushing de fense. The Bears picked off four Bar Starr passes, limited the Packer quarterback to 11 completions in 22 attempts for 73 yards and held the vaunted Packer ground game 0 77 yards, 53 in 12 attempts by Jim Taylor. The Bears' Bob Jencks kicked 32-yard field goal and the Pack- :rs' Jerry Kramer matched it from 41 yards out, both in the first quarter. The Bears broke the tie in the third period with Billy iVade directing a 68-yard march and passing them into position on lie one. Joe Marconi rammed >ver from there. Brown, a five-time rushing lead- r, who relinquished the crown to Taylor last year, had a field day against the Redskins. He averaged 10.8 yards on 15 carries, caught three passes for 100 yards, scored on .runs of 80 and 10 yards and took an 83-yard pass for an- )ther touchdown.

The long, lean St. Louis right- hander with the solemn face and nervous habits was grinning from ear to ear. "This game," he drawled in his nasal West Virginia twang "might have meant my livelihood. You never can tell. Until now, I haven't been able to do the job for this club as I knew I could. Things haven't gone right for me ever since I came. But it's different now. I think I've proved to everybody that I can still win the big ones." And it was a big one—perhaps won for the Cards Sunday. The 36-year-old pitcher, who was considered washed up by some, convinced many he still has it when he turned back his former Milwaukee teammates, 3-2, in the front end of a vital doubleheader. The inspired Redbirds went on to win the second game, 5-0, behind young Ray Sadecki and closed to within one game of the first place Los Angeles Dodgers. That first game was a terribly important victory for the Cards as it came just after the scoreboard at Busch Stadium showed that the Phillies had beaten the Dodgers. In many ways, it was even more important to Burdette. "You have no idea how much this game means to me," Lew said. "Up to now I felt as if I was letting the club down. It's going great guns and of course I'm delighted. But it's also an empty feeling to be on a club, battling the way It is, and not being able to contribute. Sometimes I even wondered why I was putting on a uniform." It was the pride in Burdette that was talking, a pride that came from a highly successful major league career that included two 20-game seasons, two that just missed 20 victories and his three World Series triumphs in 1957 against the Yanks. "I wanted so much to help this club, especially since they gave up two good ball players for me," Burdette said. "But I was a victim of circumstances.

LOUIS — The Warriors of Granite City made it a clean sweep for Southwestern Conference teams against non- conference foes Saturday with a 7-6 decision over Assumption of East St. Louis at Parsons Field. Pioneer halfback Jim Demarse broke a scoreless tie In the third quarter with a three - yard plunge off tackle to give Assumption a momentary 6-0 lead. Granite City moved late in the game, scoring with only three minutes, 30 seconds showing on the Scoreboard clock. Nick Petrillo dashed 12 yards on a reverse for the score. Granite City transfer quarterback Joe Hiles did what Don Ruegg failed to do for Assumption. He booted the extra point that brought victory to the Warrior camp. By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer "We've been fortunate in the past. When we play a bad game we turn around and beat someone pretty good," said Los Angeles Manager Walter Alston. "I can't think optimistically or pessimistically about the pennant race. When you meet head on, anything can happen regardless of how good you're going," said St. Louis Manager Johnny Keane. They said it Sunday after the stage was set for the beginning of a three-game series tonight at St. Louis between the first-place Dodgers and second-place Cardinals that likely will determine the National League pennant winner. Alston said it followed a 6-1 loss to Philadelphia in which three passed balls, a couple of mental lapses and the five-hit pitching of the Phillies' Dallas Green left the Dodgers with a mere one-game lead over the surging Cardinals. Keane said it after Lew Burdette's six-hit pitching and Ray Sadecki's five-hitter gave St. Louis a 3-2 and 5-0 doubleheader sweep of Milwaukee, their 10th straight victory and their 19th in 20 games in a bid to overhaul Los Angeles. The Dodgers, who led by seven games on Aug. 30, have 12 games remaining. The Cardinals, who have lost only one game since Aug. 30, have 10 left. They're all even in victories, with St. Louis two games back in the lost column. The pitching rotation looks lik this for the three-game series: Los Angeles—Johnnp Podres, li 10; Sandy Koufax, 23-5, and prob ably Pete Richert, 5-1. St. Louis—Ernie Broglio, 16-8 Curt Simmons, 15-7, and Bob Gib son, 18-8. While the Dodgers and Cardi nals were in the spotlight Sunday Cincinnati's John Tsitouris three hit the Chicago Cubs 3-1, Willi Mays hit his 35th homer as Sa Francisco walloped Pittsburgh 13- and Houston took a pair from th New York Mets 54 and 5-0. Green, a rarely used right-hand er brought his record to against the Dodgers, allowing the only run on a homer by Tommj Davis in the fourth inning.

By BILL LHOTKA Telegraph Sports Writer FERGUSON, Mo. — A late practice start never makes for a ready football team and Western Military Academy's defense is 6till a ways from respectability as the Red Raiders were overwhelmed Saturday on the Ferguson Junior High field, 42-0, by St. Thomas Aquinas. The Red Raiders ground out 128 yards with fullback quarterback Tom Klien picking up 79 In 17 carries, but It was nothing compared to Aquinas' impressive credentials. The Falcons picked np 235 yards on the turf going up the middle and around the ends at will. Through the air Aquinas managed seven of 16 tosses for 147 yards and an overall total yardage of 382. The first quarter seesawed about the midfield stripe as each team picked up a pair of first downs only to have drives stopped. Late in the quarter, however, Falcon senior halfback Jreg Hoffmann intercepted a Hal Holshoy pass on the Raider 25 and two plays later junior tailback Al Poelker hit Larry Ml- chuda with a toss on the left side and the swift wingback dashed 24 yards for the only score the Poelker hit back John Hotfelder over the middle for 17 yards and a score and Hotfelder trod the familiar left side 22 yards for still another TD, The Raiders mounted their only serious threat late in the first half moving from their own 39 to the Falcons 16 in U plays only to lose the ball on a fumble with 16 seconds showing on the clock.

By TOMMY KOUZMANOFF Chicago's American Staff Writer CHICAGO (AP) — This has become a stock warning among coaches, sports writers and fans in sizing up the 1963 South Suburban League football race: "All of the teams will be stronger than in 1962—but Joliet Township will be the strongest." In that case, Joliet's sturdy Steelmen will wind up undefeated and untied for the third consecutive year and their winning streak, now at 19 games, will swell to 29. Joliet plays a nine- game schedule. Ray Klootwyk, Joliet Township's coach, is optimistic and when a football coach is optimistic about his team, he must have something. Klootwyk does — 14 lettermen from the 1962 powerhouse which topped the South Suburban loop for the second successive year and finished with a No. 2 state ranking, behind Hinsdale, in The Associated Press poll of Illinois High School Association member schools.
