Texas Leagne San Antonio 4-5. Houston 1-1 Dallas 5-5, Oklahoma City 2-3 Tulsa 8-1, Fort Worth 3-10 Shreveport 3-5, Beaumont 2-6 but there is little indication that the popular manager is being blamed for the Braves' plight. Russ Lynch, sports editor of the Milwaukee Journal, explaining why a club which one year ago was fighting Brooklyn tooth and nail for the lead now is dropping more than a dozen games off the pace, has this to say: "Johnny Antonelli's fine pitching for the Giants has led to many slurs at the deal in which the Braves gave Antonelli. and another left-handed pitcher, Don Liddle, to get outfielder Bobby Thomson, who broke his ankle in spring training and may not get into a game this season. Thomson Needed '•'General Manager John Quinn of the Braves knew what he was doing, however. The Milwaukee club's inability to make runs shows how greatly a hitter of Thomson's caliber was needed. "Bobby averaged more than 100 runs batted in over the last five seasons. At the same pace, he would have driven in 40 or more so far this season. The Braves have lost 14 games by one run. How many of those might have been turned into victories by Thomson's bat? How much more potent might Eddie Mathews have been, with Thomson backing him up? How much of a lift would the additional power nave given the rest of the team? "The writer has no doubt at all that with Thomson in the lineup from the start of the season the Braves now would be right up there with New York and Brooklyn. John Quinn made a shrewd son's accident was is becoming more and more apparent."

The senor, he say simply: "We're in first place because our bullpen is a lot stronger. I can give my 'Big Three' more rest. Mow I can yank Lemon, Wynn and Garcia- a lot quicker' than in the past. Speaking before yesterday's holiday double-header with Detroit, opez admitted "it's a nice feeling" to hold a lead on the New York Yankees. "But it would be nicer if this were September instead of July," he added. "It's, rough down the stretch, but I think we can make .t this time." Split Yesterday The Indians split with Detroit, winning the first 13-6 but losing he second 1-0 in 11 innings, and heir lead over the Yankees was cut to 3y 2 games. Still, the Cleveand bullpen had a chance to shine, • .-• Art Houtteman, an ex-Tiger, replaced a wobbling Dave Hoskins in the fourth inning of the opener and checked his former teammates for his ninth win against only four losses. "That's why we're winning," Lopez explained. "Houtteman, Hal Newhouser,. Don Moss: and Ron Narleski have been doing a wonderful job for us in the bullpen. "Newhouser has been excellent. All he needs is a little time to warm up. He stopped the Yanks in relief a week ago and that was the biggest game of the year for us." Newhouser, making a comeback with the Indians, has a 4-1 record and a glittering 1.65 earned run average. He has permitted 18 hits' in 27 ! /2 innings, allowing only five earned runs.
