CLEVELAND, July 31-Cleveland's Indians, battling desperately
to remain in the thick of the dog fight for the American League
pennant, came from behind three times today and finally defeated
the pace-setting Boston Red Sox 10 to 9 in an 11-inning slugging
match that lasted three and a half hours.
A single by Joe Gordon with two out in the 11th scored
Joe Tipton with the winning marker and sliced Boston's lead over
the second place Philadelphia Athletics to half a game. The
Indians, who play the Sox again tomorrow in a double header,
remained in third place, two ' _____---__

the tough Sunday chore of making
up three strokes over the little
fellow who since mid-May has won
the PGA, National Open, Inver-
ness Four-Ball, Motor City and
Reading, Pa., tournaments.
Hogan Expected to Win
Hogan, who has piled up $22,-
797.50 to lead the money-won field
this year, is expected to make his
usual speech-"thanks for the
check"-after tomorrow's round.
The leader fired five birdies to-
day, but hit three poor shots which
cost him a longer lead. On the
par 5 fourth he "stubbed" his club
on a short approach, moved the
ball only a foot, and took a six.
He was 11 under par coming to the
par-four 17th, but banged his tee
shot out of bounds and then three-
putted for an enormous six, two
Hogan's putter was red hot
most of the way, however, as he
sank a 30-footer on 14, a 20-
footer on number 8 and a 15-foot-
er on 11, all for birdies. On the
par five 13th and 16th holes he
was on the green in two and held
two putts for his birdies.
Heafner Tied for Fourth
Clayton Heafner, the drawling
North Carolinian who topped the
first day's play with a snappy 66
sprawled to 77 yesterday, fired his
caddy and came back today with
a 70. That boosted him from a
14th place tie into a fourth-place
deadlock at 213 with Jimmy De-
maret, the Beau Brummel from
Ojai, Calif., who carded a 71.
The field of survivors headed
into tomorrow's final round withl
16 under par and two others even.
Johnny Palmer, defending champ
from Badin, N.C., appeared out of
the fight as he rolled in today
with 73 for a 222 total, 15 off the
The 214 total was the most pop-
ular and populated one, nine play-
ers being bunched there. They

ron, Vic Ghezzi, and Stan Stas-
