NEW YORK (A)-Blood-smeared
Carmen Basilio, a dogged body
puncher, won the world's middle-
weight championship from 37-
year-old Sugar Ray Robinson on
a split f decision last night after
15 gruelling rounds at Yankee
Stadium.
There were cheers, mingled with
a few catcalls from the big crowd
of about 35,000 in the ball park
this cool fall evening as Basilio
was hoisted high in mid ring by
his co-managers and handlers.
Just when Robinson appeared
to have run out of gas, he staged
a sensational last gasp finish in
the late rounds to make it close.
Judges Vote for Basilio
Both judges voted for Basilio,
the welterweight champion, but
Referee Al Berl had Robinson way
out front 9-6. Judge Artie Aidala
scored it 9-5-1 and Judge Bill
Recht 8-6-1, both for Basilio.
Both men were stunned and be-

wildered at different stages of this
free-wheeling battle of champions
but neither would go down. Rob-
inson hit Basilio with the same
wicked left hook that flattened
rugged Gene Fullmer in Chicago
last May but Carmen merely rock-
ed back, ducked low and charged
in to punch away with both hands.
Robinson fell back on his old su-
perior boxing skill to slash a cut
around Basilio's left eye as early
as the fourth round.
It appeared that Basilio surely
must go the way Fullmer and Bobo
Olson in the 13th when Robinson
staggered him with a crushing left
hook just before the bell. While
Ray tried to follow up, Carmen
covered and escaped until the
round ended.
Again in the 14th, a, dead tired
Robinson dug deep into his wan-
ing reservoir of strength to throw
a right hand bomb that landed at
the pit of Basilio's stomach. The
ex-Marine from the onion lands
of upstate New York doubled up
but remained on his feet peering
through a screen of blood.
Basilio, whn had been a surpris-
ing six to five favorite, raked Rob-
inson for fully 20 seconds without
a return in the big 10th round.
Driving him to the ropes with the
fury of his two-fisted body punch-
ing, Carmen lashed the champion
With at least 12 punches before
the defending champ could. escape.

Hank Aaron, Milwaukee's favor-
ite son, gave home town fans a
chance to go wild as he clouted a
two-run homer in the bottom of
the eleventh to give the Braves a
4-2 win over St. Louis and the
pennant.
Meanwhile, in the American
League, while the Yankees were
watching the championship fight,
their 'cousins from Kansas City
knocked off the pesky Chicago
White Sox from title contention
with a 6-5 win.
The home run and the win over
Fred HUtchinson's "dark horse"
contenders ended the speculation
that the Braves would once again
fold, similar to lash year's experi-
ence when )they lost out to the
Brooklyn Dodgers.
Aaron's 43rd Homer
The homer was Aaron's 43rd
of the season and it gave the
Braves a six game lead over the
Cards with only five games to go.
The winner of the game was
Gene Conley who came in for Mil-
waukee in the 11th after Burdette
was lifted for a pinch hitter.
Milwaukee: had bases loaded
with one out'in the 10th, but
failed- to score when pinch-hitter
Franwk Torre hit into a double
play.
Dark Drives in Two
The Cards moved ahead, 2-1 in
the sixth on Alvin Dark's two-run
single after Wally Moon singled
and Stan Musial doubled. It was

Musial's second two-bagger of
game and extended his own N
tional League record of 300
more total bases to 13 seasons.
The Braves, who scored o
one run in the second, desi
having the bases loaded with no
out, tied it, 2-2, in the seven
When Red Schoendienst led
with a single and Ed Mathi
smashed a two bagger to sc
him.
Musial also hit an eighth-inn
single to give him a career total
2955 hits, tying him with WI
Keeler for tenth in major leas
listings.
Ex-Yankee Crushes Sox
In Kansas City, ex-Yankee B
Cerv helped his ex-teammates m
another pennant with an eigh
inning sacrifice fly to give
Athletics their margin of vict
The loss put the Sox six and or
half games behind: the Yanks wi
only six games to play.
Cerv's pinch-hit fly scored'HB
tor Lopez who had doubled. T
White Sx had tied the score
5-5 in the seventh inning on A
