With seven home runs in 10 games at the Polo Grounds, the Nashville grad gives manager Leo Durocher needed strength in the outfield to h«lp the club's latest drive on the league-leading Brooklyn Dodgers. Monte Irvin, makmg his first appearance in the starting lineup since he broke his right ankle in a spring exhibition, drove home the first run in a four-run explosion against Pittsburgh's Harry Fisher in the first inning Friday night. .'hodes smashed a three-run ho:-i»r and the Gisr.ts were off and running, en route to a 7-3 victory. The Giants, who have missed many chances to gain on Brooklyn during the past week, picked up a full game when the Dodgers lost to Chicago, 6-1. New York now trails by five games. St. Louis slugged a parade of Philadelphia pitchers for H hits and a 10-5 derision to end the Phils' six-game win string. Four Osment Captures State Open Title In Playoff With Isom Little Rock-WPj-A Jonesboro in-* surance executive who plays golf for fun today held Arkansas'i biggest links prize--the Arkansas' Open Tournament championship.!
