The Yankees demonstrated anew that they know this ancient formula for- winning pennanls Sunday when they downed the seventh- plane Washington Senators 3-2 and S-6, to <c° four games ahead of the second-place Chicago \\*hite Sox. The sweep gave the Yankees an IS-'l record against the Senators and eighth-place Kansas City Athletics compared to a 2S-21 pace against the rest of the league-.

"For a youiifrstnr with only two years pxporiencc 'n professional ;>all." Marion says, "Aftaraeio is pullinf: off plays in Ihr: fi^ld that nthor shortstops don't make when Ihey'ro up here '.10 years. '•\Vhen h" ivnorled lo us this ?priii!;. m'eryone told me ho wouldn't, hit major league pitch- inf,*. All 1 said was 'let's wait and see.' The way he fielded T would have been satisfied if be hit only .250. But he's shown me he's a better hitter than that and 1 see no reason why he can't wind up 20 or 2." points better than lhal." Aparicio, .born in V.arncnibo, Venezuela, started slowly Ibis season but Marion wasn't alarmed. "H'' was a little, nervous at first but, that wore off in a. hurry." says the White Sox skipper. "Don't forgot he onrne up to us from Memphis of tin- Southern Association and 1 e.o'iM whether he had ever seen ;i bi£ league; ^rtme, before." The experts said the White Sox p\\c up too much last winter wlv-n they turned shortstop Chic.o Cnrrasi-juel and outfielder .Tim Hov Much Money Die!

They felt (hut the inexperienced Aparieio couldn't begin to fill Car- ra.sciuel'.s shoes. Mow. however, there arc some who are convinced ttet Aparicio is superior all-around to Carras- (|uel although Marion refuses to be drawn into any comparison of the two. Oddly. Aparicio and Camisqnel are neighbors now in Caracas, Venezuela, and Chieo even g~ave Luis tips on how to nlay shortstop. "We arc good friends." Aparicio declares. "He loach me a lot of thing's and sometimes we. play together in Venezuela." Back in Caracas. Aparicio's father was known as "the Babe Ruth of Venezuela." for his slugging: exploits but Luis is not much of a fence-busier himself. In his first year in organised baseball with Waterloo of the Three-! League in 1P.T4. Aparicio hit only four homers and last year he hit six with Memphis; so far he has hit one four-bagger with the Sox. 'He doesn't have to be a long ball hitter to help us," Marion points out. "He takes a good cut at the ball and before the season is over I'm sure he'll collect his share of extra base hits, "I was always a great admirer of Phil Rizzuto." Marion adds, "and Aparicio reminds me of him in a lot of ways. He's a real dandy and sure has made a tremendous difference to our ball club." Standings ... Hy I'.MTKI) T'KKSS .\iiiericitn League W.
