Red Soxall Blasts Senators, 6-4,

To

Retain Lead

Masterson's Relief Work
Saves Crucial Flag Tilt

WASHINGTON-(R)-The Bos-
ton Red Sox last night maintained
their one-game lead over the New
York Yankees in the hot American
League pennant race by beating
the Washington Senators, 6 to 4.
A four-run sixth inning gave the
Sox a 6 to 0 lead, sufficient to
stave off Washington's late rallies
in the seventh and eighth. Walter
Masterson relieved Joe Dobson in
the eighth.
* * *
BEFORE HE was knocked out
Dobson had singled home the last
run of the Red Sox big sixth. It
followed Birdie Tebbetts' two run-
single. Earlier in the sixth Vern
Stephens' one-baser had driven
in Johnny Pesky.
Dobson held the Senators to
one hit over the first six innings,
but began to weaken in the sev-
enth.
Dobson walked Ed Stewart to
start the seventh. Roberto Ortiz
followed with a single to left.

Eddie Robinson connected and
sent a drive against the right field
wall but no one scored as it ap-
peared that Al Zarilla might catch
the ball.
DOBSON bore down and got
former Ped Sox Sam Mele to foul
out. Sam Dente flied out, Stewart
scoring after the catch and Jake

Early ended the frame by ground-
ing out.
The Senators knocked out
Dobson in the next round.
Pinch-hitter Gil Coan opened
the frame with a single. Ed Yost
walked and Sherry Robertson
singled to score Coan, Yost mov-
ing to third. Masterson took
over at this point and induced
Ortii to bang into a doubleplay,
Robertson scoring. Robinson
then flied out to end the bid.
Mele opened the Senator ninth
with a single but Dente hit into a
twin-killing and Early flied out
to end the game.
PAUL CALVER.T started for the
Senators and was relieved by Hud-
son in the sixth who gave way to
Hittle in the same inning. Hittle
worked until the eighth with
Mickey Harris finishing up.
The Sox meet the Nationals
again under the lights tonight in

Yanks Beat

NEW YORK-(IP)-Still boiling
with a charge that umpire Bill
Grieve "blew" the big decision in
Monday's game with Boston, the
New York Yankees kept their pen-
nant hopes alive yesterday by
downing Philadelphia, 3-1, for Vic!
Raschi's 20th victory.
The win left the Yanks a game
back of the leading Red Sox who
defeated Washington last night,
6-4.
Shortly after hearing that out-
fielder Cliff Mapes had been fined
$200 and Manager Casey Stengel
and talph Houk, $150 each, for
Monday's argument with Grieve,
the Yanks ripped into Dick Fowler
for three big runs in the third in-
ning.
After that outburst they were
cooled off by little Bobby Shantz,
Mr. Mack's pint-sized lefty, who
allowed only one hit in a superb
relief job over 5 2/3 innings.
Raschi, the Yanks' first 20-game
winner since Spud Chandler in
1946, allowed only four hits in a
workmanlike job. It was his third
try at the American's 20 club and
he finallydmade it to join Boston's
Ellis Kinder and Mel Parnell and
Cleveland's Bobby Lemon.
The Yanks cashed in on Dick
Fowler's sudden wild streak inthe
third. Phil Rizzuto pumped a sin-
gle to center. Then Fowler, a 14
game winner, walked Jim Delsing
and Bobby Brown to fill the bases.
He couldn't find. the plate and also
passed Henrich forcing in a run.
Yogi Berra's two run single to cen-
ter brought Shantz ambling to the
scene.

NEW YORK-American League
President Will Harridge yesterday
fined three New York Yankees a
total of $500 for alleged mistreat-
ment of an umpire-a move that
led the pennant contenders to
charge their league chief with
being as wrong as the umpire in-
volved.

Act!

"Bill" Lyons
Welcomes back both
Old and New patrons at
his new location,
1209 South University,
opposite the parking lot.

Throughout the day, the reper-
cussions resulting from Monday's
dispute over the winning run in a
game which the Yanks lost to the
Boston Red Sox rebounded be-
tween Harridge's Chicago office
and Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
* * *
HARRIDGE LED off by fining
Yankee outfielder Cliff Mapes
$200 and demanding an immediate
apology for remarks made to Um-
pire Bill Grieve.
The league head said he was
advised that Mapes confronted
Grieve after the game and asked
him "How much did you have
bet on the game?" That, said
Harridge, was a reflection of
the umpire's honesty. He also
fined Yankee Manager Casey
Stengel and catcher Ralph Houk
$150 each.
It all started in the eighth in-
A

ning of Monday's game when
Johnny Pesky of Boston came
roaring home from third base on
a squeeze play. At the moment, the
teams were deadlocked for the
American League lead and the
game was tied at 6-6.
