In the third Inning he hit a home run for the Giants' second tally. He singled in the fifth, then rounded out the night with his second home run, this time with pitcher Jim Hearn on base In the eighth as New York whipped the Pirates, 4-2. Hofman has been in the Giants' organization for 10 years since he played American Legion baseball in St. Louis on the same team as Yogi Berra. He saw action last year in only 32 games. The victory jumped the Giants from last to fifth place, enough to make Durocher happy even though he was tossed out of the game for arguing in the ninth inning with umpire Bill Stewart. First place In the National League changed hands as the Philadelphia Phillies made it two in a row over Brooklyn, this time by a 5-4 margin, and St« Louis defeated Cincinnati, 8-3. The Phils and Cardinals now share the lead with Brooklyn half a game behind. Milwaukee swamped Chicago, 15>6. The New York Yankees took over sole possession of first place in the American League by whip* ping Boston; 9-2, while the ft, Louis Brawns were idle, A flve-run ninth* inning rally fell short for Detroit as the Tigers bowed to Chicago, ».?, and Philadelphia beat Wash* tngton, 7*4, Cleveland wasn't scheduled. The Cardinals battered Cincinnati pitching tor 13 hits, half of them for extra bases, to put down the Redlegs at St. Louis, Vinegar Bend Mizell walked six and committed two errors, but he struck out seven and lasted until two were out In the ninth before needing help from Al Braele. Braves Tee Off The Braves bashed everything in sight for 17 safe blows and 34 bases at Chicago. Third baseman Ed Mathews led the raid, with two homers and a double, good for six runs. Johnny Mlze, 40, punched a pinch single with' the bases loaded and the score tied In the eighth Inning to give the Yankees the win over Boston. Vern Stephens, Sherman Lollar and Sam Mele homered for the White Sox off Milt Jordan, Detroit rookie starting his first major league game, as the Tigers lost their fifth in a row and their seventh in eight games.

The Shells kicked around Oiler starting pitcher Dan Narup for six runs in the fourth inning before Boyd Sever moved in to halt the uprising. Thereafter Sever held the Roxana crew firmly In check with a pair of singles through the last three innings. Wood River hacked up Sever In his fine relief job by picking up a run in the fourth, two more in the fifth and a big seven tallies in the sixth. Roxana was materially aided in its big Inning by three 1 Wood River errors and a wild pitch but Bill Watkins came through with a triple during the surge. The Shells had half ol their eight hits in the fourth frame, though. Ralph Freeman was the prime hitter for Roxana with three singles in four times a-t bat. Terry Wrest was touched for five hits in the first five Innings by the Oilers but with better support, could have gone into the sixth still unscored upon. Wrest finally was driven to cover, though, when he weakened to walk Wagner and Sever for a bases loaded situation. Rich Hambleton took over; only to be greeted by a Gary Schillinger single which brought In the tying and leading runs. Schillinger, Lyle Dorsey, Dana Mead and Latham Simms had two hits apiece and Wagner had one for Wood River. Mead, Wagner and Sever scored two ruhs each.
