Yankees Beat A
Joost Lost for Month
NEW YORK-(AP)-Eddie Joost,
shortstop of the Philadelphia Ath-
letics, sustained severely torn lig-
aments in his left knee yesterday
afternoon as the seventh-placers
were beaten by the New York
The 34-year-old infielder was
involved in a collision at second
base with Cliff Mapes, big Yankee
outfielder, in the seventh inning.
He was carried from the field on
a stretcher and, after an examina-
tion was removed to a hospital for
X-rays. He probably will be side-
lined at least a month.
THE INJURY occurred just a
bit before the game was halted
by rain. With one out in the Phila-
delphia eighth, showers forced a
35 minute delay.
The Yankees bagged three Ath-
letic hurlers for 13 hits, with Alex
Kellner taking the loss. He was
thumped for five in the fourth,
three crossing on Mapes' seventh
homer of the season. Phil Rizzu-
to made three hits for New York
and Johnson had a perfect day
with four for four.

Tiger Star Dies
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -(A')-
Joseph A. (Joe) Sargent, 56,
former infielder for the Detroit
Tigers and St. LouisCardinals,
died yesterday at his home
last night, 8 to 3. Lemon allowed
nine scattered hits, including
home runs by Dave Philley and
Eddie Robinson, but marked up
his 11th win of the season.
Senators overcame a 5-1 deficit
while overhauling the Boston Red
Sox for a 9-7 victory last night
before a packed 32,695 crowd.
After a delay of 63 minutes, the
game was ruled ended because of
rain at the end of seven innings.
CHICAGO - (AP) - Jockey Ken-
neth Church was commended by
the Illinois Racing Board yester-
day for an act of heroism which
may have cost him victory in the
third race at Arlington Park.
By his action Church, a Wind-'
sor, Canada, lad probably saved
fellow jockey Wendell Eads from
death or serious injury.
* * *
SHORTLY AFTER the break in
the third race, Eads, aboard Trier,
lost his stirrup and was at the
point of falling when Church, see-
ing his predicament, spurted up
alongside and pulled him back into
the saddle. He rode along until
Eads regained control of his
Church was riding Hair Stylist
the favorite. After his rescue of
Eads he went after the leaders,
but the race went to Ferry Pilot.
Hair Stylist finished second by a
The cheers of the crowd were
deafening when Church came back
to salute the judges and dismount.
Joseph Broderick, secretary of
the racing board, said the board
will honor Church with a scroll.

NEW YORK-()-The National
League will attempt to break the
Americans' All-Star monopoly next
Tuesday without the help of St.
Louis Cardinal pitchers.
Manager Burt Shotton made
that certain today when he failed
to name a single Redbird among
his eight all-star hurlers. Base-
ball men consider this a surpris-
ing move since they attribute the
Cards' current first place position
to the splendid work of their
SHOTTON NAMED two of his
own Brooklyn aces - Don New-
combe and Preacher Roe. The
others are Robin Roberts and Jim
Konstanty of Philadelphia, War-
ren Spahn of Boston, Bob Rush of
Chicago, Ewell Blackwell of Cin-
cinnati and Larry Jansen of New
The omission of St. Louis
southpaws Max Lanier and
Howie Pollet caused some eye-
brow raising, especially since
Shotton has only two lefties on
his staff-Spahn and Roe.
Shotton may have been reading
history in not naming a St. Louis
pitcher. Since the All-Star compe-
tition between the two leagues be-
gan in 1933, at least one Cardinal
pitcher was selected in all but
two years. The National won both
times without St. Louis pitching
help. Considering that the Na-
tional has won only four of 16 (no
game in 1945), it may have given
Burt an idea.
