PHILADELPHIA - Sam Chap-
man snapped out of a paralyzing.
slump with a dramatic ninth inn-
ing home run with Ferris Fain on
base to beat the New York Yan-
kees 8 to 7 yesterday and extend
the American League pennant race
at least one more day.
Adding insult to injury, Chap-
man's blast into the left field seats
on a three-ball two-strike count
pitch, lowered the boom on the
Yankees' sensational rookie pitch-
er, Ed Ford. The 21-year-old left-
hander had won nine straight
games before yesterday. Ford came

Braves, any combination of two-
two Philly wins, two Brooklyn de-
feats, or one Philly win and one
Brooklyn defeat--will do the trick
of nailing down the first flag in 35
years for the "Whiz Kids."
The Phils battled from behind
all day against the Giants. In
the opener, they came up with a
five run rally in the eighth ini-
ing to tie the score at 7-all and
send the game into overtime.

found their claws again yester-
day as they outfought the St. Louis
Browns 5-4 to pick up a full game
in the American League race and
keep their .slender pennant hopes
DETROIT bunched four hits, in-
cluding Pat Mullin's fourth homer,
in a four-run sixth inning to take
a 4-1 lead which Art Houtteman
could not hold as he yielded a run
in the seventh.
Former Tiger Stubby Over-
mire, who had won his last three
games, took over St. Louis'
pitching duties in the ninth and
was greeted by a booming triple
off Johnny Groth's bat.

Dodgers blew an opportunity to.

lies yesterday by splitting a dou-

but lost the nightcap, 4-2. The
split moved the Dodgers to within
four games of the Phils.

cope with the slender, relent-

Toward the end, Charles, who
conceded 331/2 pounds to the old

storm, though he never ceased to
try to fight back.

IT WAS A SAD finish for the
once great champion in the eyes
of the thousands who had seen
him at the height of his ring glory.
His left eye was pounded shut and
blood poured from his nose as, in
the 14th round, he held momen-
