Harbert Downs Bolt in PGA Final
Indians Widen Lead over Yanks
ST. PAUL (A'I-Chick Harbert's
long and disheartening quest for
the PGA golf championship ended
yesterday when the barrel-chest-
ed Northville, Mich., pro shook off
an atrocious start to whip defend-
ing champion Walter Burkemo, 4
and 3, in the 36-hole finals at the
The 39-year - old, prematurely -
graying Harbert, wild as a scatter
gun but Pirate bold, won as per-
haps no other champion ever won
in a big time event. After losing
three of the, first four holes, he
played the next 29 in 8 under par.

showing the strain of the week-
It was the ninth PGA bid for
Harbert, who never before got
farther than the finals which he
reached twice-in 1947 and 1952. It

Jack Tuesday proclaimed Aug.
8 "Willie Mays Day" in honor
of the slugging New York Gi-
was the third finals in four years
for Burkemo, beaten by Slaming
Sam Snead at Oakmont in 1951.
Harbert started the match over
the low-slung public course in
miserable fashion, losing three of
the first four holes without putting
two good shots together. The
crowd suffered with him and
might have excused him if he'd
picked up his clubs and called it
.Instead, he pulled even with
Burkemo at the 11th, went ahead
at the 14th and never gave the
champion an opening after that.
After the third hole of the morn-
ing round, where he took a night-
marish double bogey seven, Har-
bert never had a bogey.
From the fourth hole, where
Burkemotwent three -up with a
birdie deuce, Harbert went 21
holes-from the fourth to the 25th
-without losing a hole.
On the 25th-a 546-yard par five
-the new titleholder, in trouble
practically all day, sliced his sec-
ond shot onto the middle of a
paved road and ended up losing
the hole to a birdie four.
It was the only hole Harbert
lost after the fourth.
Harbert won the 28th when he
holed a 18-foot putt for a birdie
three and the 32nd was halved in
pars, and the match was over.
Burkemo, a blond battler who
lives less than 10 miles from Hiar-
bert in suburban Detroit, started
out as if he might end the match

Cleveland to a 6-3 victory over the
Boston Red Sox Tuesday night as
the Tribe opened a 14-game home
Bob Lemon pitched his 12th vic-
tory, against five losses as the
Indians tightened their hold on
Lemon gave up 10 hits as Bos-
ton's rookie righthander Frank Sul-
livan yielded 11 to the Indinas.
It was the 14th time this season

against their single victory. The
two teams were in a 16-inning 5-5
tie a week ago and came to a 7-7
deadlock that afternoon when rain
stopped the game.
The Indians took a 2-0 lead in
the first inning, when Al Rosen
beat out a hit to Grady Hatton,
who threw wild to first, alldwing
a score by Larry Doby, who had
singled. Vic Wertz' double scored
Rosen's homer, his 18th of the
season, came in the third.

CHICAGO (P)-The Chicago White
Sox were a smashing success Tues-
day night in their opening bid to
sweep a three-game series from
the New York Yankees, turning
back the New Yorkers 4-0 as Vir-
gil Trucks fireballed a five-hitter
for his fourth shutout of the season.
The largest crowd of the season
and the third largest in White Sox
history, 53,607, poured into Comis-
key Park to watch the Sox make
good on the first part of their pro-
fessed aim to send the defending
champions away from Chicago
without a win.
Sox manager Paul Richards said
before the game that he "wouldn't
be a bit surprised" if the Sox took
all three games and indicated that
superior pitching would do it.
Trucks backed him every inch
of the way.
The 35 - year - old righthander,
whose powerful arm delivers his
famed fastball with hs much
speed as ever, sailed to his 14th
victory of the season with a mini-
mum of trouble.
Irv Noren, the American
League's leading batter, was the
only Yankee who enjoyed any real
success against Trucks. Noren hit
safely three times. Three other
Yank hits were by Micky Mantle
and Jerry Coleman.
Meanwhile, the White Sox put
Trucks out in front with two runs
in the first inning off starter-loser
Harry Byrd-a double by Minnie
Minoso and singles by Phil Cavar-
retta and Jim Rivera doing the
damage-and salted down the vic-
tory with two more in the sixth.
The third-place White Sox thus
maintained a position six games
behind the leading Cleveland In-
dians, who beat Boston 6-3, Tues-
day night. They pulled up a game
-to within 3 -of the second-place

BALTIMORE (M - Billy Hunter

the Orioles stopped the red hot
Washington Senators 7-5 lastj
Duane Pillette, wno hurled the
only three victories during the
Orioles' recent 22-game trip away,
turned back the Senators tonight
although he was relieved by Bob
Chakales in the eighth inning. It,
was Pillette's ninth triumph against
Billy Hunter spear-headed the
13-hit Baltimore attack with three
smashes, including a triple and
two singles, and batted in a run.
The Orioles had leads of 5-0 and
7-2, but Washington kept blasting
away. The Nats' Ed Fitzgerald
and Mickey Vernon each homered
but with the sacks empty.

TIGERS 3-3, A's 2-8
DETROIT W'-Bill Tuttle's two-
out single in the ninth inning gave
Detroit a 3-2 victory over Phila-
delphia Tuesday night in the open-
er of a twi-night double-header but
the A's, behind Marion Fricano,
captured the nightcap 8-3 with a
Tuttle's game-winnign hit, a
ground ball to center, scored Bob
Wilson from second.
But Fricano, a 31-year-old right=
hander, smashed Detroit's hopes
for a sweep with a five-hitter in
The A's routed Ned Gerver in
the second game, as Lou Limmer
collected a single and his second
home run of the night, and Jim

Blanked by Fricano for six in-

home run and added two more

By that time, however, the A's
had built an 8-0 lead and Fricano
coasted to his fourth win against
seven losses. The defeat evened
Garver's record at 7-7.
In the opener, Detroi's Steve
Gromek had a three-hit 2-0 shutout
going into the ninth when, with one
out, Limmer and Vic Power ex-
ploded successive home runs into
the rightfield seats to tie the score.
In the bottom of the ninth,
singles by Wilson and Harvey
Kuenn put runners at first and
second with two out against loser
Tuttle, hitless in three tries, then
grounded a single through the box
and Wilson scored easily from sec-
ond. It gave Gromek his 12th vic-
tory against 9 losses and caused
Bishop his third defeat without a
