CHICAGO-(A)-The first place
Detroit Tigers used -two scoring
spurts, a four-run first and a six-
run fifth, to beat the Chicago
White Sox in a 10-9 second game
slugfest yesterday. Lefty Bill
Wight won a 4-1 duel from Hal
White in the opener before 35,-
998 persons.
The split cut Detroit's first
place lead in the American League
standings to four games because
New York won and tied in a
double-header in Washington.
ROOKIE SAUL ROGOVIN end-
ed up with his first major league
victory in the second game. He
checked the White Sox on three
hits during the last four and one-
third innings.
One of the Chicago hits off
Rogovin was Eddie Robinson's
no. 6 home run. It gave the
White Sox two runs in the
eighth behind a walk to Mike
McCormick. This swat lifted the
score to its eventual windup.
Detroit clubbed starter Bob
Cain for a 4-0 lead in the first
inning when Hoot Evers doubled
for two runs behind a leadoff walk
to Johnny Lipon and Jerry Prid-
dy's double. Johnny Groth greeted
Howie Judson for a triple to com-
plete the spurt when the right
'ander took over for the routed
ain. * * *
DETROIT jumped on rookie
Charley Cuellar for all of its six
runs in the fat fifth. Priddy's in-
field out scored Hal Newhouser
with what proved to be the win-
Prof Now Champ
SAGINAW, Mich. - Robert
Dixon, 32-year-old assistant
professor at the Univer-
sity, yesterday won the men's
singles championship in the
Michigan -State Closed Tennis
Tournament.
Dixon and Dick Lincoln, 1950
University graduate, won the
men's doubles from Roger
Cessna and Dick Shingleton of
Lansing, 6-0, 2-6, 6-4.
Dixon, in recapturing the
singles title that he had won
in 1946 and 1947, stroked his
way past Lincoln, 7-5, 6-0.
Both are lefthanders.
ning run. Newhouser was chased
in the home half of the same in-
ning for his fourth straight failure
to finish a starting assignment.
In chasing Newhouser and
reliefer Dizzy Trout the White
Sox scored four runs in their
turn. They had the bases full
when Rogovin got big Gus Zer-
nial on an inning-ending foul
tip to catcher Aaron Robinson.
Chicago gained a 14-8 hitting
edge in the see-saw second game.
Ken Holcombe, fifth White Sox
pitcher, skipped through the final
four innings without allowing a
hit or a walk.
DETROIT scored its only run
off Wight in the opener in the
first inning when Lipon led off
with a single, stole second and
counted on George Kell's safety.
Nelson Fox launched Chicago's
tying and winning rallies with
singles. Fox' first hit opened the
White Sox sixth, and the little
second sacker completed the jour-
ney on Dave Philley's sacrifice
and Marvin Rickert's double.

took turns batting in a run apiece.

INDIANS 8-3, BROWNS 7-8
CLEVELAND - (A') - Those
"weak" St. Louis Browns put an-
other chill on Cleveland's pennant'
ambitions yesterday, whacking
three Indian pitchers for 14 hits
and winning the second game of a
doubleheader, 8 to 3.
Cleveland won the first game, 8
to 7, but the series went to the
Browns, two games to one. The
Indians had won their last seven
series.
* * *
IN THAT SECOND GAME, the
last place, relaxed Brownies show-
ed a decided lack of respect for
starting pitcher Mike Garcia, who
had won and completed his last
five games.
Don Lenhardt slammed a
home run in the fifth inning,
scoring three, and Les Moss fol-
lowed him to the plate and hit
another homer. I
Allie Clark hit a bases-empty
homer off winning pitcher Don
Johnson for Cleveland in the sixth
inning. Al Widmar finished up
for Johnson and shut out the In-
dians in 3 1/3 innings.
YANKEES 16-3, SENATORS 9-3
WASHINGTON -(P) -The New
York Yankees won the first game
of a doubleheader from the Wash-.
ington Senators yesterday, 16-9,
but had to be satisfied with a 3-3
tie in the nightcap which was
called at the end of the ninth be-1
cause of darkness.
The crowd of 25,229 saw a slug-
fest in the opener, which required
three hours and 24 minutes of
playing time, and a tight pitching
duel between southpaws Ed Lopat
and Bob Kuzava in the nightcap.
Sloppy fielding support hindered
the efforts of both left handers.
JOE DIMAGGIO was back at
his familiar center field position
for the Yankees in both games,
with Johnny Mize installed at first
base.
Vic Raschi won his 10th vic-
tory in the opener, though kay-
oed in the eighth. Joe Page, his
successor, also was mauled. Tom
Ferrick finally quieted the Nats.
Mize swatted a pair of singles in
each game. In the opener he drove
in two runs.
THE YANKS assaulted five Nat
hurlers for 17 hits in the first
game. Sid Hudson, knocked out
in the seventh, was the loser.
The tall right hander and his
successor, Mickey Harris, yielded
five runs in that frame as New
York wiped out a 5-4 deficit.
BOSTON - (P) - A scheduled
doubleheader between the Athle-
tics and the Red Sox was post-
poned yesterday because of rain.

Then Jaroslav Drobny of

Mulloy of Miami, Fla., with
ease, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

Charles Gets
MedicalExam
NEW YORK-(P)-NBA Heavy-
weight Champion Ezzard Charles,
sidelined for several months by
a heart injury, will be examined
today to determine his fitness for
ring action.
H e a r t specialists will give
Charles a thorough check in the
afternoon at Medical Center. If
Ezzard passes, then he will be
permitted to resume his boxing
activities. If he fails, he probably
will have to give up his title and
take a long rest.
CHARLES, who will be 29 on
July 20, was examined May 4 in
Chicago by the Illinois State Ath-
letic Association Medical Board.
If Charles' condition is found
satisfactory, the NBA champion

runs by Stan Musial and effec-
tive pitching by Max Lanier and
Harry Brecheen gave the St.
Louis Cardinals a pair of victories
over the Chicago Cubs yesterday,
4to1and 4to3.
Both of Musial's four-baggers
followed a double - by Tommay
Glaviano in the first game and
by Red Schoendienst in the night-
cap.
* *.*
BRECHEEN trailed briefly in
the second contest as the Cubs
scored on Wayne Terwilliger's
triple and Bill Serena's single in
the first inning. The visitors add-
ed another in the second wnen
Phil Cavarretta doubled, took
third on a wild pitch and stole
home.
But in the third the Redbirds
took the lead for keeps. Schoen-
dienst doubled and Musial ho..
mered to open the frame. With
just one out, Glenn Nelson siigl-
ed Bill Howerton home from
second but a doubleplay on Del
Rice's grounder stopped the
rally.

game,
Duke Snider and Newcombe

walk, a wild pitch, a hit bats-
man and an infield out. One in-
ning earlier Edwards broke a
scoreless tie with his homer.
Dark's second homer of the day,
coming off Bud Podbielan, with
two on in the fifth, accounted for
all Giant runs. Palica, relieving
Podbielan with one out in the in-
ning, finished up and was credit-
ed with the victory. He gave up
only two hits in 4 2/3 innings.

PHILLIES 14-9, BRAVES 5-12
PHILADELPHIA - (P) - Sid
Gordon's fourth grand slam. hom-
er of the year provided the biggest
baseball fireworks on the Fourth
of July as the Boston Braves and
Philadelphia Phillies split a
double header. The Phils won the
opener 14-5 for Robin Roberts'
10th win of the year.
Then Gordon equalled a major
league mark set 39 years ago by
hitting his circuit clout in the
ninth to enable the Braves to
come from behind and win the
nightcap 12 to 9.
REDS 8-5, PIRATES 4-4

ly single by Johnny Wyrostek in
the ninth inning, after wholesale
managerial juggling, enabled the
Cincinnati Reds to take both ends
of a double header with the Pitts-
burgh Pirates, 8-4, 5-4, yesterday.
Wyrostek's safety came with
two men on, following Bobby Ad-
ams' pinch-hit single, an error by
Pittsburgh pitcher Bill MacDon-
ald and a free ride to Danny Lit-
whiler. It broke a 4-4 tie.
With the win, the Reds scored
a clean sweep of the three-game
series. with the Bucs. They now
have won 10 of their last 14 games.

Dapper Lloyd Comes
From Behind to Win
DETROIT-(A)-Dapper Lloyd
Mangrum, who had to settle for a
co-championship in the 1949 Mo-
tor City Open, came from behind
yesterday on the last nine holes
to edge out Sammy Snead and
win the 1950 tournament with a
274.
The chain-smoking Mangrum
was three strokes down to Snead
going into the final nine and most
of the gallery of 10,000 figured
Snead, no. 1 money winner of
pro golf this year, was going to
pocket the $2,600 first prize mo-
ney.
* 4' *
BUT MANGRUM rallied with a
courageous back nine, racking up
a pair of birdies in those final
holes to finish with a 36-34-70.
Then he had to sit by and watch
Snead's vain efforts to edg:a the
Chicagoan out.
Snead had a 33 - three un-
der par - going out, but two
bogies on the final nine boosted
him to a 38-71-275, one stroke
behind Mangrum.
Snead gave the gallery a :eal
golfing thrill on the 18th on which
he needed a birdie four for a tie.
His second shot just missed a trap
but he chipped up beautifully to
within four feet of the pin. He
flubbed that short putt, however,
and had to settle for par and
second money of $1,900.

Lanier in the first game until the
seventh inning when Bob or-
kowski singled. Cavarretta Killed
Lanier's bid for a shut out in the
eighth when he homered onto the
right field pavilion roof.
It was Lanier's eignth victory

NEW YORK-()-Bruce Ed-
wards' home run with one aboard
in the fourth inning andsplendid
relief pitching by Erv Palica gave
the Brooklyn Dodgers a 5-3 second
game triumph over the New York
Giants and a split of their holi-
