lock with the Los Angeles Dodgers
and the New York Giants' corpse
came to life behind a 7-inning no-
hitter by Sam Jones yesterday in
the pulsating National League
pennant race.
The Braves edged the Philadel-
phia Phillies, 3-2, while the Chi-
cago Cubs clobbered the Dodgersi
12-2. The Giants, not quite ready
for the embalmer, cut down the
,St. Louis Cardinals, 4-0, with
Jones tossing the second no-hitter
of his career.
The game was halted with two
out in the top of the eighth inning
by heavy rains and high. winds.
Tornado warnings were in the St.
Louis area.
So the pennant race won't be
decided until today-the final day
of the season. In order for the
Giants to tie they have to win a
doubleheader from the Cards (the
second game of the twi-nighter
last night ,was postponed), and
the Braves and Dodgers both have
to lose.
If either the Dodgers or the
Braves win, the Giants are out of
it. If both the Dodgers and Braves
win, they will play off for the
championship with the first game
monday. If both lose and the
Giants-Cards doubleheader is
rained. out, all hands will have to
wait for a clear daysso San Fran-
cisco and St. Louis can play.
Spahn's victory, No. 267 of his
illustrious career, set a new record
for left handers in the National
League. It topped the old mark
held by Eppa Rixey that the 38-
year-old southpaw tied Monday
night in Pittsburgh.
Spahn allowed only two hits in
the first five innings but they were
home runs by Gene Freese and
Wally Post so he was fortunate to
be tied with Roberts at that stage.
An unearned run had pulled the
Braves even in the fourth on a
wild peg by Freese.
As the game wore, on, Spahn
seemed to get. stronger. Although
he was pulled out of a deep jarh in
the seventh by fine defensive play
and saved again by a nice play by
shortstop Johnny Logan, he fin-
ished with a flourish.,
After Milwaukee finally crashed
through for a third run off Rob-
erts in the last of the eighth,
Spahn struck out both Eddie Bou-

Singles by Eddie 'Mathews and
Hank Aaron, a sacrifice bunt by,
Joe Adcock and an intentional
walk to Maye loaded the bases
against Roberts in the eighth. The
tie-breaking run scored as Bobby;
Avila forced Maye at second, Mat-
hews scoring.
Thus the sizzling race came right
down to the final day of the sea-
son. The Braves finish at County
Stadium against the last-place
Phillies and the Dodgers wind up
at Chicago. If the teams are tied;
after toiporrow's games they will
start a best-of-three playoff Mon-
day afternoon in Mauwauke.
Manager Eddie Sawyer of the*
Phils named right hander Jim
Owens (12-11) to pitch ithe last
game. He has a 1-0 record against
Milwaukee. Manager Fred Haney
of the Braves was undecided but
was expected to name right-
hander Bob Buhl (14-9) who holds
a 17-8 lifetime edge over the Phils.

NEW YORK - Mighty little
Sword Dancer from the Brook,-
mede Stable of Mrs. Isabel Dodge
Sloane won one of the great races
of all time yesterday. Eddie Ar-
caro brought him up along the rail
in the final strides to defeat De-
troit-owned Hillsdale by a head at
Aqueduct in the $109,800 Wood-
ward Stakes as Round Table ran
A crowd of 53,290, a record for
the new $33000,000 Aqueduct
plant, bet the Kerr Stable's Round
Table down to 7 to 10 favoritism
but when Sword Dancer entered
the winner's circle they cheered
him like the champion he proved
himself to be. Great rounds of ap-
plause fololwed Arcaro and Sword
Dancer, only 3-year-old in the
race, until they left the track.
Arcaro, the master, gave one of
his finest exhibitions of horse-
manship as he laid off the pace
set by C. W. Smith's Hillsdale.
Round Table was second until
they hit the stretch, where Sword
Dancer went into a drive that first
put away the world's greatest
money-winning horse.
But, there was Hillsdale still

out in front, and the crowd roared
as Arcaro whipped like a demon in1
the final sixteenth of a mile and1
Sword Dancer gradually measured
his final rival in what turned out
to be just what was expected - a
three horse race.

The World Champion Baltimore'
Colts will begin their quest for a
second straight title when they
open their season this afternoon
against the Detroit Lions in Balti-
The Colts have the same cast of
characters that romped through
the Western Division last year and
then defeated the New York Giants
in the first sudden death cham-
pionship game in NFL history.
Johnny Unitas, ace quarterback
of the Colts, will be seeking to ex-
tend his owri record of throwing at
least one touchdown pass in each
of the last 25 games. Chief targets
for Unitas will be ends Ray Berry,
the leading receiver in the league
last year, and Jim Mutscheller,
halfbacks Lenny Moore and.L. G.
Dupre and fullback Alan Ameche.
The equally effective ground
game of the Baltimore squad will
be spearheaded by Moore and
While the Colt offense received
most of the credit for last year's
title, their defense is rated the
best in the league.
The Lions, on the other hand,
will be seeking to bounce back
from a disastrous 1958 season
which saw them slip from the
league champions to fifth in the
Western Division.
Tobin Rote will be at the helm
for Detroit, a one touchdown\un-
The Lions running attack, below
par last season, is bolstered by
rookie Nick Pie tr o s ant e, John



Fenry Johnson and Hopalong Cas-
However, only a supreme effort
by both the Lions offensive and de-
fensive units will be needed if they
are to start the season in, a win-
ning way.
The game will be televised at
1:00,p.m., Channel 2.
The oldest rivalry in the NFL
will be continued today when the
Chicago Bears open their season
against the Green Bay Packers in
Green Bay.
This will be the 80th meeting of
the two clubs.
The Bears, second to the Colts
last season, sported the most im-
pressive record in the exhibition
season and off to this record they
are a touchdown favorite over the
The Packers have a new head
coach in the person of Vince Lom-
bardi, a former Giant aide. How-
ever, the Packers have been re-
building and don't appear to be a
serious threat for divisional hon-
Out on the west coast another
freshman coach, Red Hickey of the
San Francisco '49ers, will be mak-
ing his debut.
Hickey's San Franciscans will
take on the Philadelphia Eagles of
Buck Shaw, a formei '49er coach.
The battle between the Eagles
and the '49ers may develop into a
passing duel between two of the
league's veteran passers, Y. A. Title
of San Francisco and Norm Van
Neither the Eagles or the '49ers
are expected to be contenders in
their respective divisions.
Still another freshman coach
will have his baptism of fire this
afternoon, when Mike Nixon and
his Washington Redskins meet the
Chicago Cardinals in an Eastern
Division battle at Soldier's Field,
new home of the Cardinals.
The Cardinals, with Texans
King Hill, Bobby Joe Conrad and
John Crow leading Coach Pop
Ivy's double wing attack are slight
favorites over the Redskins.
