CHICAGO-The Chicago White
Sox Snapped Cleveland's seven-
game winning streak, 4-1, yester-
day and climbed to within one
half game of the idle New York
Yankees in the American League
pennant scramble.
The White Sox, shaking off
their batting slump behind the
stylish three-hit pitching of lefty
Billy Pierce, clouted Bob Lemon
and his reliefer, Dick Rozek, for
12 hits. Pierce, in registering his
third consecutive triumph over
the Indians, did it in threes today
-allowing three hits, walking
three and striking out three, in-
cluding Luke Easter twice.
PIERCE SET the last nine bat-
ters down in order including Geo-
rge Stirnweiss, who batted for Le-
mon in the eighth.
Bob Dillinger paced the White
Sox attack off Lemon with
three singles, while Eddie Rob-
inson, Jimmy Busby and Gus
Niarhos each made two.
The victory also pushed the
White Sox three and one-half
games ahead of Boston and five
and one-half in front of Cleve-
land.

SID GORDON'S sharp single to
center with the bases full in the
last of the ninth gave the Boston
Braves a 4-3 victory over the
Brooklyn Dodgers and an even-
split in their abbreviated two-
game series.

distance for the Tribe, rang up
his seventh win against six loss-

Sawyer's Picks
Cause No Tumult
NEW YORK -(UP) - Because no
neglected National League pitcher
threw a no-hitter recently, Mana-
ger Eddie Sawyer's all-star squad
was accepted yesterday with a
minimum of tumult and shouting.
With seven members of the
league-leading Brooklyn Dodgers
on the club, the National Team
represented a solid cross section
of league strength for the July
10 test at Detroit with the Ameri-
can League.

dies day crowd of 8,858 attend-
ed.
The game see-sawed from the
first inning when the Braves went
into a one-run lead.
* * *x
SURKONT TRIED to win his
own game in the eighth by driv-
ing in a run with a single to cen-
ter, making it 3-2 Boston. But
the visitors came back in the first
of the ninth to make it 3-3.
Luis Marquez opened the
Braves' ninth with a double and
went to third when Roy Cam-
" panella threw wild in trying to
pick him off. Earl Torgeson and
Bob Elliott walked to load the
sacks and then Gordon came
through with the winning blow.
Whitey Lockman lashed , a
game-winning single in the 13th
inning for the bounce-back New
York Giants' 9-8 edge over Phila-
delphia after Willie Mays tied the
score with his eighth homer.
LARRY JANSEN, making his
second relief appearance of the
year in the 11th, earned his 10th
win as the Giants chopped Brook-
lyn's league lead to 4/ games.
The thrilling contest wavered
back and forth through a
steaming afternoon before the
Giants came from behind for
the fifth time with two out in
the 13th after a Phil score.
Bobby Thomson's two-run dou-
ble in the sixth tied the score the
first time-3-3. After a two-run
Phil outburst in the eighth, the
Giants came back on Thomson's
12th homer in the eighth and a
double by Ray Noble in the ninth
to make it 5-5 at the end of nine.
BILLY RIGNEY'S homer balan-
ced a Phil run in the 10th. After
Eddie Pellagrini hit a homer in
the 12th, the Giants again rallied
with Rigney's single scoring Mon-
te Irvin to make it 7-7.
In the top of the 13th the
Phils again pushed out front.
Singles by Eldie Waitkus and
Richie Ashburn-his fourth hit
-and a walk to Dick Sisler
loaded the bases. Del Ennis
scored Waitkus with a long fly.
But the Giants weren't through

Par-Busting
Spree Cops
Title, 7 and 6
Cuts 22 off Par
For 166 Holes
OAKMONT, Pa.-(R)-West Vir-
ginia's silky-stroking hillbilly, Sam
Snead, climaxed one of the most
spectacular sub-par streaks in golf
history yesterday to smother
young Walter Burkemo of Frank-
lin, Mich., 7 and 6, for his third
PGA championship.
It was the second worst defeat
recorded in 33 l5rofessional golf
association finals-outranked only
by the humiliating 8 and 7 licking
Snead himself took from little Paul
Runyan at Shawnee-on-Delaware
in 1938.
BEN HOGAN, who decided his
legs would no longer carry him in
this most gruelling of all links
events, trounced Mike Turnesa by
7 and 6 in 1948.
When Snead closed the door
on the popular, pug-nosed bat-
tler from Michigan on the 30th
hole, he was 22 under par for
166 match 'play holes over the
stand-tooth Oakmont monster
whose upar 37-35-72 had with-
stood prolonged assaults down
through the years.
In 10 major tournaments, in-
cluding two United States Opens,
none of the golf great-Bobby
Jones, Walter Hagen or Hogan-
ever gave the broad, hilly layout
such a shellacking as it took dur-
ing the last week from Snead's
sizzling clubs.
The White Sulphur Springs cap-
italist, who has won more than
$200,000 on the golf trail since he
came out of the hills 16 years ago
to become one of the game's out-
standing figures, pocketed $3,500
for his triumph. Burkemo as run-
nerup earned $1,500.
In hanging up the 33rd cham-
pionship beside the titles won in
1942 and 1949, Snead became the
third man in history to win as
many as three PGA crowns. Ha-
gen won five times, Gene Sarazen
thrice.
To all intents and purposes, the
37-year-old West Virginian won
the final match on the first hole.
After two ponderous pokes down
the 483-yard fairway, he chipped
home from 45 feet for an eagle
three.
That put Burkemo playing in
his first PGA championship, in
a hole from which he never saw
daylight. Ripping old Oakmont
apart with a three-under-par 34
on the front nine, Snead built up
a five-hole advantage.
Burkemo, a twice-wounded ar-
tilleryman in World War II,
showed his punk by cutting that
margin to three holes with a
strong spurton the incoming nine,
but he was just prolonging the in-
evitable.
Snead came out after a hearty
lunch and, with a gallery now
grown to 6,000 pushing at his
heels, won three holes in a row,
sinking birdie putts of seven and
15 feet on the 19th and 20th and
taking the 21st with a par.
The muscular, pug-nosed young
Michigan pro hung on gamely,
with strong underdog support
from the gallery, but he was no
natch for Snead's relentless spray
f birdies and pars.

The summer sports season in
Ann Arbor got off to a flying start
this week as Intramural softball
leagues ran off their first sched-
ules of games.
With a total of 28 teams en-
tered, four leagues were formed
with six teams in each, plus one
league with a four-team bracket.
ALL GAMES are played at 6:45
p.m. So far this week, scores have
been in the stratospheric class, due
to limited practice sessions. But
with several experienced perform-
ers in the league, play is expected
to improve.
The schedule for Thursday's
play in the I-M softball leagues:
Adams vs. Wenley; Fletcher vs.
Allen-Ruamsey; Ch i c a g o vs.
Lloyd; Zeta Psi vs. Sigma"Chi;

Theta Delta Chi vs. Theta Xi;
Phi Kappa Sigma vs. Acacia.
In addition to the softball ac-
tivity, the qualifying rounds for
the all-campus golf tournament
will be held Saturday and Sunday,
July 7th and 8th. Post entries
will be accepted for the event.
Golfers need only inquire at the
desk in the clubhouse.
Pairings will be posted in the
men's locker room Sunday eve-
ning. The qualifiers will be di-
vided into flights on the basis of
their scores.
Results of I-M softball games
this week:
Theta Xi 29, Acacia 24.
Fletcher 12, Adams 11..
Theta Delta Chi 8, Zeta Psi 7
(8 innings).
Sigma Chi 20, Phi Kappa Sig-
ma 1.
