NEW YORK - Joe Collins belt-
ed his second home run of the
game with one out in the 10th in-
ning last night, giving New York
a 2-1 victory over Cleveland and
lifting the Yankees out of a sec-
ond place tie with the Indians in
the blistering American League
race.
Collins' first shot, boomed into
the lower right field seats, had
pulled the Yanks into the 1-1 tie
with the Tribe in the first inning.
From then on, it was a tight
cat-and-mouse pitching battle be-
tween New York's Tommy Byrne
and Cleveland's Early Wynn.
The tribe got its run in the top
of the first when Al Smith led off
with a triple and came home on
Bobby Avila's sacrifice fly.

WHITE SOX 2, RED SOX 1
BOSTON - Chicago's Dixie
Howell, second relief pitcher of the
inning, retired Eddie Joost with
the potential tying run on third
base to preserve a 2-1 victory over
Boston and keep the White Sox
on top in the American League.
Pinchhitter Fay Throneberry
had just tripled in a Boston run
with two out in the ninth when
Manager Marty Marion called on
Howell. Jim Busby hauled in a
fly ball in centerfield that ended
the game.
Connie Johnson, 32-year-old
righthander hurling his fourth
victory in five decisions since his
June 30 recall from Toronto, was
within one out of a complete game
when the Red Sox brewed trouble.
Johnson got behind Throneber-
ry 2-0 after yielding a single to
Jim Piersall and Marion waved in
lefty Morrie Martin to face left-
hander Throneberry.
Fay crashed a triple to left cen-
ter and Marion trotted back to
the mound to call for Howell.

NEW MADRID, Mo. (P)-Argen-
tina's Antonio Abertondo, bleeding
from fish bites, failed yesterday in
his second bid to swim some 300
miles down the Mississippi and
was hauled unconscious from the
river.
The 37-y e a r-old swimmer,
three-time conqueror of the Eng-
lish Channel, had covered 221
miles and had been in the water
65 hours and 17 minutes. He
started at St. Louis Saturday.

In the early morning darkness
a strong current swept Abertondo
three miles into the lesser channel
of the river some 14 miles upstream
from here.
The swimmer and members of
the party accompanying him by
boat throught he had been carried
into a tributary, and he fought his
way back upstream against the
4 m.p.h. current.
He was overcome as he reached
the main channel, and was lifted
into the boat with straps.
"His whole body was literally
covered with fish bites," said a
spokesman for the group. "He
didn't say a thing about them.
We didn't know he had been bitten
until we pulled him out."
Still champion for the 292-mile
swim from St. Louis to Caruthers-
ville, Mo., is John Sigmund, St.
Louis butcher. In 1940 he made
the swim in 89 hours and 59
.minutes.

CHICAGO (R)-Things began to
perk in the preliminary phase of
Tam O'Shanter's golf carnival
yesterday as unheralded Lionel
Hebert of Erie, Pa., banged a sev-
en-under-par 65 to pace some 150
pros in qualifying play.
Another 18-hole qua l i f y i n g
round will be held today for 150
more pros hoping to grab 72 unex-
empted berths in the $250,000 All-
A m e r i c a n tourney, tomorrow
through Sunday.
Warmup for "World"
The All-American which holds
forth a $3,420 first prize is really
only a warmup for tle following
week's "World" meet which car-
ries a $50,000 cash prize for the
winner.
However, contenders in the
"World" must play in the All-
American.
Hebert, 27, brother of the more
renowned Jay Hebert, rapped a 32-
33-65 for Tam's par 36-36-72, to
finish two strokes in front of Paul'
O'Leary, Bismarck, N.D., who had
34-33-67, and Gene Webb, -St.
Louis whose 67 was fashioned with
35-32.

in Qualifiers
It appeared that 72 or 73 would
round out the contingent of 72
qualifiers, who will join 85 ex-
empted pros in the All-American.

Poor Old Joe'
Fears Beating
In Sulky Race
GOSHEN, N.Y. (p) - Shed a
tear for poor Joe O'Brien who
drives Scott Frost, odds-on favor-
ite to capture the 30th Hamble-
tonian Stake today at Good Time
Park.
The 38-year-old r e i n s m a n,
widely known as the world's most
pessimistic driver, has the finest'
3-year old trotter since Greyhound
won this famous sulky classic in
1953.
'Poor Us'
"We're liable to get the heck
whipped out of us," sighed O'Bri-
en.
O'Brien is a notorious sour not-
er. He never says his horse will
win.
Eleven of the country's fastest
3-year-old trotters will face the
starter in the first one-mile heat
at 1 p.m. (CST).j
Two Heats To Win
The first horse to win two
heats, to be raced every hour,
grabs the big prize. The oddsmak-
ers have Scott Frost 3-5 in their
book.
Scott Frost will have two stable-
mates from the stable of Sol
Camp, Shafter, Calif. One of
them is Butch Hanover, a pretty
fair trotter. The other, Home Free,
isn't as highly regarded.
The chief rivals to the Camp
trio are Galophone, owned by Wil-
liam T. Marbury of Dexter, Maine,
and Childs Hanover, pride of Ken-
neth D. Owen of Houston, Tex.
