Giants Dump Dodgers, 4-3,
Trail by Only Two Games
Chicago Takes Two Games
As Yanks, Senators Divide
By The Associated Press
BROOKLYN - Don Mueller's
big bat and accurate right arm
proved the deciding factors yes-
terday as the New York Giants
vanquished the Brooklyn Dodgers,
4-3, to pull within two games of
the National League lead.
Mueller had a hand in all the
Giants' scoring as they whipped
their arch interborough rivals for
the sixth straight time, four in a
row at Ebbets' Field. Not since
R the days of the oldest fans have
the Giants been able to accom-
plish such a feat.
* * *
THE RIGHT FIELDER walked7
,s in the second inning, advanced a
base on another pass to George
Wilson, moved to third on a force;
play and scored the first Gianto
run on a long fly by catcher Sal
In tbe sixth, Mueller featured
a three-run outburst against
Billy Loes with a scorching
triple to the left center field
vwall that scored Whitey Lock-
man and Bobby Thomson. Don
crossed the plate a few moments
later on Wilson's single to right.
The Dodgers, who had taken a
2-1 lead in the second on a walk,
an error by Thomson, and Billy
Cox's single, threatened to tie the
Sgamein the eighth but were
thwarted by Mueller's fine throw
to the plate. Singles by Peewee
Reese and Jackie Robinson and a
sacrifice put the potential tying
runs in scoring position with one
out. Duke Snider hit back to
Hearn and Reese was caught in a
run-down with Robinson taking
third and Snider taking second.
* * *
LEFTHANDED swinging George
Shuba, pinch hitting for Andy
Pafko against righthander Jim
Hearn, singled to right. The blow
easily scored Robinson but Sni-
der also tried to score and was
cut down at the plate, Mueller to
Brooklyn outhit the Giants,
eight to four, received four
walks and put two more men
on base through Giant errors,
but four double plays reduced
their scoring chances. Three
Dodgers were cut down at the
plate. Hearn was credited with
the victory, his ninth against
two losses, but needed help from
Hoyt Wilhelm in the ninth.
* * *
REDS 5, PIRATES 1
CINCINNATI - Bubba Church
won his first game of the season
yesterday, holding Pittsburgh to
four hits while the Cincinnati
Reds pounded out a 5 to 1 vic-
tory over veteran pitcher Howie
Joe Adcock's homer with Bobby
Adams on second, and two doubles
and a single by Roy McMillan
sparked the Reds' attack. It also'
ended a three-game losing streak
* * *
GUS BELL'S homer into the
rightfield bleachers in the seventh
spoiled Church's bid for a shut-
out. The blast also gave Pitts-
burgh its first run in 17% inn-
Church, who has lost two
games and until today had not
finished one this season, gave
only one safety in the first five
Cincinnati won the game in the
fourth 'inning on four hits, in-
cluding Adcock's homer, a single
by Adams, and doubles by McMil-
lan and Andy Seminick.
BOSTON --(R)- Boston Braves'
outfielder-first baseman Earl Tor-
geson was fined $100 yesterday for
slugging New York Giant catcher
Sal Yvars in Tuesday night's game
and Yvers drew a $25 fine for
breaking Torgeson's bat.
National League President War-
ren Giles notified the clubs, play-
ers and umpires just before the
start of yesterday's series finale-
which the Braves won 2-1 to end
their own six-game losing string
and stop the Giants' victory skein
at four games.
* * *
GILES CALLED Torgeson the
aggressor. The big Bostonian op-
ened a gash over Yvars' right eye
with a terrific left hook after the
two feuded in the first inning
while Torgeson was at bat.
Yvars complained Torgeson
was hitting him on the shins
with the backswing of his bat,
but Torgy told him to move
back a bit and not crowd the
plate. The Bostonian then
smacked a single only to find
that Yvars had smashed his bat
while he was running down to
At his first chance-in the sec-
ond inning-Torgeson raced to the
Giants' dugout and swung at
Yvars, crashing him against the
cement wall. The head cut later
required stitching at a hospital.
. * * *
BOTH TORGESON and Boston
pitcher Vern Bickford were tossed
out of the game by umpire Larry
Goetz, Bickford for demanding to
know why Goetz hadn't banished
It was announced after yester-
day's game that Bickford has been
fined $25 for his run-in with
THE HALFWAY MARK-in the 1952 baseball season finds the
Brooklyn Dodgers of Chuck Dressen (left) and the New York
Yaikees of Casey Stengel perched atop their respective leagues.
The Giants and White Sox will be gunning for the leaders in
today's double header fireworks. Leo Durocher's crew is only two
games back, while Paul Richards' Windy City boys are breathing
down Yankee necks from two and a half games away.

CHICAGO - Eddie Robinson
banged in seven runs with a pair
of homers and a single to fuse a
15 hit barrage yesterday that car-
ried the Chicago White Sox to a
12-3 nightcap victory and a
doubleheader sweep over the St.
The triumphs boosted the Sox
into second place in the American
* * *
AS AN OPENER, the Sox won,
6-3, a game suspended since
Robinson lashed out his sea-
son's 11th and 12th homers in
the regular game, each good for
three runs. He completed his
work in the eighth with a run-
scoring single that supported a
five-run inning. Sherman Lol-
lar belted his ninth homer of
the campaign in the big frame.
The first game was resumed
after a two months interruption
after five innings with the Sox
leading 3-1. Tommy Byrne walk-
ed four batters to give the Com-
iskeys their fourth run of the
game in the seventh. Lollar
brought Minnie Minoso home for
Chicago's fifth tally in the sev-
enth and Willy Miranda drove in
the last run in the eighth.

YANKS 9-4, SENATORS 6-6
WASHINGTON-The New York
Yankees and Washington slugged
it out to a draw yesterday in a
The Yankees twice came from
behind with 4-run splurges in
the seventh and ninth innings to
grab the first game, 9-6, and the
Senators unleashed a 14-hit at-
tack to capture the second game,
WASHINGTON advanced to
fourth place as Jackie Jensen,
former Yankees' outfielder, hit
safely in both games. He has bat-
ted safely in 20 consecutive games,
hitting .430 over that stretch.
The Senators carried a 6-5
lead into the ninth inning of
the opener. But the Yankees
blasted Don Johnson and Joe
Haynes for four runs.
Johnny Sai, fourth New York
pitcher, got the victory, his eighth,
as Bauer and Brown led the Yan-
kees' 14-hit assault with three hits

Stephens' four-year-old son in the
Boston clubhouse last Friday
night "that was the. climax,"
Stephens reported, and manager
Lou Boudreau ordered Piersall
sent back to Birmingham of the
Boudreau, himself, refused to
comment on the story, insisted
"The Piersall incident is closed"
but he didn't deny the report.
The story was reported first by
Ed Costello, sports editor of the
Boston Herald, Costello quoted
* * *
"WHEN I HEARD (last) Satur-
day morning about the Piersall
incident with Stevie's son Friday
night, I knew that to prevent a
serious incident that might in-
volve Stevie and Piersall, it was
best to send Jim away."~
Stephens said he was "pretty
angry" when he heard about the
spanking, "as any father natur-
ally would be."
* * *
"THAT PIERSALL is a good
ball player but he needs to straigh-
ten himself out. He could be a
great player if he wouldn't do
such crazy things."
At New Orleans, Piersall ad-
mitted the spanking but "I
ain't got anything more to add."
Costello, in his story, quoted
Piersall: "During the game I did
go into the club house and Vern's
boy, a cute kid, was there. I
started fooling with him and I
guess I gave him a spank on the
seat of his pants that was a little
too hard because he started to cry.
"I kidded him then and asked
if he was all right. I have two
children of my own and wouldn't
for a minute stand for anyone in-
tentionally hurting them. I cer-
tainly didn't mean to hurt Stevie's
boy and told him so Friday night
and Saturday morning."
