NEW YORK-Vic Raschi of the
New York Yankees set a major
league record for pitchers last
night when he drove in seven
runs against the Detroit Tigers.
The previous record was six,
shared by five American league
RASCHI singled with the bases
loaded, driving in two runs in the
second inning. He doubled home
three runs in the third inning and
singled in two more in the fourth.
Last season Raschi batted in
a total of two runs.
The New Yorkers flaunted their
strength at the seventh place Tig-
ers by lifting Raschi after six
innings to rest him for the big
Chicago series this weekend.
THE RIGHTHANDER gave up
just two hits. Art Schallock, low
man on the Yankee staff, gave up
four hits in the final three inn-
ings and preserved the shutout.
Raschi drove in two runs in
the second inning when he
singled with the bases loaded.
That equalled his total runs
batted in for last season. In the
third he came up again with
the sacks full and cleared
them with a double. Again in
the fourth the bases were loaded
when Vic batted and this time
he singled home two more.
The previous major league rec-
ord for RBI's by a pitcher was
six, shared by five American
League hurlers-George Uhle of
Cleveland, Wes Ferrell of Boston,
Pete Appleton of Washington,
Spud Chandler of the Yankees
and Ellis Kinder of Boston.
WHITE SOX 8, ATHLETICS 3
gil Trucks fireballed a four-hitter
at the Philadelphia Athletics last
night as the Chicago White Sox
came through with a six-run
splurge in the fourth inning to
cushion their way for an 8-3 win.
The 34-year-old righthander
racked up his 14th win of the sea-
son against five losses. He held
the Philadelphia batsmen hitless
until Loren Babe singled to open
the sixth inning. He now has 107
strikeouts for the year.
THE WHITE SOX gave him
plenty of working margin in the
fourth. Fred Marsh opened with
a walk and Bob Boyde singled to
Minnie Minoso singled to
center scoring Marsh and then
starter Harry Byrd walked Bob
Elliott, Eddie Stewart and Jim
Rivera to force in two runs.
Southpaw Frank Fanovich re-
placed° Byrd and primptly wild-
pitched Elliott across the plate.
Sherman Lollar flied to center,
Stewart scoring and Chico Car-
rasquel tripled to right to bring
PHILLIES 8, CARDS 1
ST. LOUIS-Robin Roberts won
his 19th game of the season last
night as he limited the St. Louis
Cardinals to five hits to lead the
Philadelphia Phillies to an 8-1
Roberts, who has lost only seven
games, struck out seven, walked
two and hit one.
The Cardinals scored their only
run against Roberts in the first
inning when veterans Stan Musial
and Enos Slaughter backed up a
pair of doubles.

ting the past two seasons, had

day said it was rumored dissen-

when a locker toppled on second

ton Sunday night, it occurred

The suit was filed by James

FAIN rejoined the Sox yester-
day in Philadelphia with a badly
swollen left hand and was ex-

Fain left Washington before

IT WAS during that game Man-
ager Richards left the bench to
confer with Lane over the fate
of Pitcher Saul Rogovin, whose
hurling was far below expected
form all season.
It finally was decreed Saul
had a sore elbow and he was
placed on the disabled list.
Richards faced sharp criticism
from writers covering the Sox for
continuing to use Rogovin in face
of his continued mound failure.
NEW YORK-()-The Nation-
al League can attribute its rise in
attendance this season to the
presence of the Milwaukee Braves.
With about two-thirds of the
season gone, the league boasts an
attendance gain of 804,530 over
last year's figure at this time.
Milwaukee alone shows an increase
THE American League, with
seven of the eight clubs suffering
decreases in attendance, is 814,269
admissions behind its 1952 pace.
Statistics compiled by The
Associated Press through Mon-
day's games disclose an overall
dip of 9,739 in both leagues over
last season. In 1952 at this time
the teams had drawn 9,859,971
and this year they have played
The Braves, who performed in
Boston last season, have attracted
1,096,949 fans to their 48 home
games in Milwaukee. A year ago
only 195,147 Bostonians had turn-
ed out to watch them.
OTHER National League teams
with attendance boosts include
St. Louis, 73,759. Those clubs be-
hind their 1952 pace include Chi-
cago, 164,536; and Cincinnati,
All told the league has at-
tracted 5,045,981 fans as com-
pared to last season's figure of
In the American League the
only team to show an attendance,
improvement has been the NewI
York Yankees. In 48 home games+
the Yanks have drawn 1,034,505+

The teams with attendance de-
clines include Chicago, 82,130; De-
troit, 264,489; and St. Louis, 165,-1

the figure a year ago was 5,618,520.
'L Mo' May Abandon Net
Game in Favor of Marriage
NEW YORK -(') - United
States hopes of recapturing the
Davis Cup from Australia are
"Our chances are the brightest
in many years," said Col. Jim
Bishop, president of the United
States Lawn Tennis Association.
"THERE ARE several reasons
for optimism, but the greatest ob-
viously is the fine tennis Vic Seixas
and Tony Trabert are playing.
They give us unusual strength
both in singles and doubles."
Jack Kramer gave the ama-
teur brass hats their biggest
boost when he raided the Aussie
ranks and persuaded Frank
Sedgman and Ken McGregor to
turn pro last December.
But even then there was little
optimism over the 1953 challenge
round, for the Aussies had a flock
of "miracle kids" ready to take

NEW YORK-(P)-This is a
prediction. Maureen Connolly will
play about two more years of
amateur tennis. She will tour the
pro circuit a year, then retire per-
haps to rear a bath of Little Mo's.
Now Maureen didn't tell us that.
These are just a few predictions
we plucked strickly on our own be-
tween lines of a dialogue after the
Wightman Cup matches at Rye,
* * *
TODAY LITTLE MO can hit a
tennis ball better than any woman
in the world. Maybe she can hit
one better than any women in the
world ever could, including the
graceful Suzanne Lenglen and the
poker-faced Helen Wills. That's
one of those impossible debates.
She also is 18, loves to ride
horses, play be-bop on the
phonograph and shake an oc-
casional rhumba. She is blonde,
cute as the girl next door and
definite on exactly what she
It's not Helen Wills' tennis rec-
* * *
"GRACIOUS, goodness, no, I
have no idea of going after Helen
Wills' records," the San Diego,
Calif., girl said. "In the first place
I don't think I could match them.
In the second place, I don't want
to give tennis that much of my life.
"I don't plan to become a, well,
a traveling, uh, uh . ."
A professional amateur athlete?
we tried to help.
"Well, yes, if you want to put
it that way. I like tennis but I
don't plan to make it my life. I
want to marry and have a family,
and make tennis incidental-inci-
dental maybe to horses."
Maureen's yen for horses may
be readily understood. The
young man with whom she has
been romantically linked-Nor-
man Brinker of Roswell, N. M., a
Navy seaman--is a jumping
horse specialist who was a mem-
ber of the U. S. Olympic eques-
trian team last year,
Maureen herself owns a Ten-
nessee walking horse named Col.

"I THINK more than anything
in the world I'd like to become a
good horsewoman, ride in shows
and win ribbons," she said. "Nor-
man is teaching me to ride."
On the oft-rumored marital
plans, the tennis queen insisted
she and Brinker are not engag-
ed but added: "I guess you'd
call him a steady. I'm not going
with anyone else."
As for turning pro, Maureen
will neither confirm nor deny,
leaving you to reach the conclusion
she's not going to pass up that one
big purse opportunity when it grins
"Tennis is fun," she said. "It
has given me a chance to travel
a lot and see a lot of places while
I am young. Right now I am con-
centrating to make the most of it.
But a full-time career? No in-
