Red Sox Drop Close Game
To Cleveland; Tigers Split
End Regular Play
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-The Chicago White
Sox yesterday hoisted themselves
into undisputed 'possession of sec-
ond place in the American League
pennant scramble by defeating the
World Champion New York Yank-
ees, 2-1, in a thriller in which the
Yankees outhit Chicago, 11 to 5.
Howard Judson, a surprise start-
er for Ken Holcombe, who suf-
fered a wrist injury against Boston
Saturday, was the winning pitcher,
although he needed assistance
from lefty Billy Pierce in the ninth
to quell a threatened uprising.
Ed Lopat, who has beaten the Sox
by 2-1 counts in two previous
games, lost this one by the same
A LADIES' DAY crowd of 34,279,
including 23,758 paid, watched the
Sox take the series, 2 and 1, and
climb to just three percentage
points behind the League-leading
Boston Red Sox. The Sox lost at
Cleveland, 5-4, in 11 innings.
The Yankees made a gallant
attempt to tie the score, or tri-
umph, in the first of the ninth.
Judson passed Bobby Brown,
pinch hitting for Jerry Coleman,
and Billy Martin ran for him.
Pierce was called to replace
Judson. Lopat failed twice to bunt
and then struck out and Martin
was doubled at second as he over-
slid the bag, Joe Erautt to Chico
Carrasquel. Gene Woodling flied
to Al Zarilla to end the game.
THE YANKEES mauled Judson
for four hits in the first two in-
nings, but extracted nothing but
exercise from them. Johnny Mize
grounded weakly for the third out
in the first after Phil Rizzuto and
Hank Bauer had singled. Jackie
Jensen singled in the second, but
was nabbed trying for third on
Coleman's single to center.

dians made it two out of three
over the first-place Boston Red
Sox when speedy Bob Avila
raced all the way home from
first on an 11th inning single to
give the Tribe a 5-4 victory in
their series finale.
By dropping the contest, Boston
now has a lead of only three per-
centage points over the Chicago
The spectacular end to the
fiercely-fought game came after
Avila reached base on a single-
his fourth hit of the game-that
scored pinch-hitter Bob Lemon for
the tying marker.
THEN WITH two out, Sam

Avila had almost reached third
when left fielder Ted Williams
picked up the ball.
Williams held the ball, expect-
ing Avila to play it safe and hold
up at third. But the swift little
second baseman continued, slid-
ing safely across the plate to
beat Williams' throw.
Clyde Vollmer banged out two
homers for the Sox to make it 16

ROOKIE MORRIS Martin of
the Philadelphia Athletics blanked
the Detroit Tigers, 5 to 0, to tie
Ellis Kinder of Boston as the
League's winningest pitcher per-
centagewise. But the Tigers
bounced back to win the second
game of a doublehealer, 4 to 3.
First baseman Lou Limmer's
wild throw while trying for a
force play in the eighth inning
of the second game allowed Neil
Berry to reach second. Berry
scored the tie-breaking run on
Dick Kryhoski's single.
Martin, a 28-year-old Missour-
ian of Indian descent, allowed five
hits and walked no one as he
carved his sixth win against one
loss. Fred Hutchinson (8-4) was
Elmer Valo and Hank Majeski
punched three hits each to pace
the 14-hit attack. The A's scored
three times in the fifth inning on
five singles. In the seventh and
ninth innings, Gus Zernial drove
home lone runs.
Virgil Trucks, w h o relieved
starter Hank Borowy in the eighth
inning of the second game, won
his fourth game against two losses.
Bob Hooper lost his seventh game

THE RIVAL captains-dashing
Frank Shields of the U. S. forces
and Japan's grand old man of
tennis, Ichiya Kumagae-both ex-
pressed satisfaction with the way
names were plucked out of silver
goblets in the first televised Davis
Cup draw in history.
The ceremonies, attended by
high dignitaries of the sport and
the state were staged in station
WHAS-TV, and witnessed by an
audience of thousands.
Savitt, 24-year-old former Cor-
nell star who hit his stride this
year, recently won the Wimbledon
Championships after taking the
Australian title in the winter.
Nakano, 36-year-old Army chap-
lain in the last war, is playing on
his third Cup team.
The United States, with an edge
in experience and stroking power,
is favored to win the series and
qualify to move into the second
round against Mexico Aug. 3-4-5.
If they can win both singles, the
U. S. netmen can clinch the vic-
tory in Saturday's doubles with
the veteran Billy Talbert of New
York and 20-year-old Tony Tra-
bert of Cincinnati, who haven't
been beaten in two years. The
Japs' doubles team probably will
be Nakano and Goro Jurikura, 31-
year-old lefthander, although the
lineup doesn't have to be an-
nounced until today.

ference. "I think I'm the lucki-

THE WHEELS already were
turning for the September re-
match which may be held in any
one of four cities-New York,

"Charles deserves the right to
the return like the contract says
within 90 days," Bocchicchio
said. "Joe Louis? We'd love to
fight him again. He's next after
"Then we'll go right down the
line. Rocky Marciano and all the
rest. We want to do the boxing
game as much good as we can.
WALCOTT NODDED in agree-
ment with everything his manager
said. One of the many telegrams
he reveived cae from Louis. He
talked about the fight in between
posing for pictures as he pretend-
ed to drive home the same left
hook to Felix's jaw.
What about the knockout
"It was a left hook that tra-
veled about six or eight inches.
First I feinted a jab to the body
and then hooked the left.
"When I hit him I said, 'Thank
God this is it.' When that punch
landed I knew it was the end. But
I knew it was only a matter of
time after I hit him in the stom-
ach with a hook in the second."
"It was easy and it wasn't easy.
We had him fight the way we
wanted him to. He went right
along the way we wanted."
Charles agreed in his own news
coaference later that he never
fought his own fight.
"I didn't get going," he explain-
ed. "I don't know why. I just
couldn't gettogether with myself.
I never opened up. Dreaming and
