CHICAGO, Sept. 23 -- Harry (The
Cat) Brecheen protected the St.
Louis Cardinals' half-game lead over
Brooklyn today with a brilliant nine-
hit shutout, 1-0, over his "cousins"
from Chicago, driving home the win-
ning run run with a third-inning
Chicago had men on base in
every inning except the third and
seventh and:movedabase runner
to third with only one out onr two
occasions but never could break
through Brecheen's string of zeros.
Eleven Bruins were left on base.
Every pitch was thrown with all
the deliberation and cool calculation
Brecheen would use in a World Series
game, for this was a "big one" and
the centers feldscoreboard showed
the Dodgii(ers were all tied up with
the Phils in Brooklyn during most
of the game.
Once again Manager Eddie Dy-
er's spring training theory of giving
his pitchers an extra batting lick
paid off in a decisive game, Bre-
cheen's bouncer over second base
in the third driving home the win-
Joe Garagiola had opened the St.
Louis second with a single to right,
the fist hit olf starter Hank Wyse.
Marty Marion's sacrifice bunt moved
the rookie catcher to second, setting
the stage for Brecheen's game-win-
ning sock, a ball that bounced over
second base and took an inspired
hop away from Billy Jurges' glove.
The cat-like St. Louis lefthand- .
er, whose fielding ability has saved
him more than one game, was in
real trouble in the second when
Bob Sturgeon's single, Bill Nichol-
son's doulble and a walk to Jurges
loaded the . sacks with one out.
Fast fielding by Enos Slaughter in
recovering Nicholson's smash off
the right field wall saved a run.
BROOKL YN, Sept. 23 - The
Brooklyn Dodgers remained hot on
the heels of the National League's
pace-setting St. Louis Cardinals to-
day by smashing the Philadelphia
Phillies, 6-1, while the Red Birds
protected their slim half-game lead
by downing the Chicago Cubs, 19.
For seven innings Rube Melton of
the Dodgers and Southpaw Ken Raf-
fensberger of the Phils were locked
in a 1-1 hurling duel but the Brooks
broke the game wide open in the
bottom half of the eighth by scoring
five runs to clinch the game.
Furillo Starts Rally
Carl Furillo walked to start the
Brooks' big frame and advanced to
second when Pee Wee Reese's bunt
hopped over Raffensberger's head for
a single. Bruce Edwards moved the
runners along with a sacrifice and
after Howie Schultz was purposely
passed to load the bases, pinch hitter
Stan Rojek dropped a fly ball over
the drawn-in infield to register Fur-
illo with the tie-breaking run,
The third Dodger run crossed on
Ed Stanky's safe squeeze bunt and
Cookie Lavagetto followed with a
single to drive in two more. Stanky
scampered home with Brooklyn's last
run when Augie Galan flied out to
left fielder Del Ennis.
Phillies Take Early Lead
Philadelphia took a 1-0 lead in the
third inning on Enil Verban's single
and Skeeter Newsome's double, but
the Dodgers evened matters in the
fourth when Dixie Walker doubled,
moved to third on a sacrifice and
scored on Edwards' infield hit.
Raffensberger worked himself out
of another hole. in the fifth before
the roof fell in on him in the eighth.
With two down, Ducky Medwick and
Walker singled, but Furillo bounced
to the veteran lefty to retire the side.

"B" Team Works With Varsity
Weber, aided by Bill Barclay, Cliff
Keene, and Pete Petoski, had been
putting the little Wolverines through
their paces for the past month
alongside the varsity. During the
last few practice sessions they've
been pitted against the first string-
ers in a series of scrimmage scuffles.
The "B' staff has been particularly
impressed by work of Jack Har-
bough at full-back, 22-year old, 190-
pound plunger from Petoskey, Mich.
John Ghindia has also been per-
forming very well at quarterback.
In the line Coach Petoski is beam-
ing at present over the prospects of
end Irvin Wisniewski.
