Rule .Denies
Dyck's Sale
To Indians
Cleveland Indians learned yester-
day they had run afoul of major
league baseball rules in trying to
buy outfielder Jim Dyck from
their farm club, the Indianapolis
Cleveland got Dyck in a trade
last year from the Baltimore Ori-
oles, then sold him to Indianapolis
last winter.
That means, under the regula-
~.tions, that Cleveland cannot re-
acquire Dyck's contract until after
the baseball draft this fall.
No Loophole
A Tribe spokesman said, "There
is just no way we can take Dyck
under the regulations.
The Indians only Monday an-
nounced they were purchasing
him. The 33-year-old outfielder
made only one appearance in the
Cleveland lineup last season, hit-
ting a pinch single in the final
game of the year. He led the A-
merican Association in batting at
Indianapolis this season, with a

The law is that when a major
league club sells a player to its
minor league affiliate it cannot
buy him back until other teams
have liad a chance to obtain him
in the annual draft.
The Indians were unable to op-
tion Dyck to Indianapolis because
he already had been optioned three
times. That is why he was sold.

Cubs Headed for Best Season
Since 1945 NL Championship

CHICAGO (M) - The Chicago
Cubs, who haven't finished in the
National' League's first division
since taking third inr1946, have
parlayed home runs and a share
of luck into a comeback that could
well be tops in sports for the year.
Running in second place most
of the campaign, the Bruins-no

years and 100-1 shots for the
pennant on the early 1955 form
sheet-have provided as big a sur-
prise as the Brooklyn Dodgers'

two-game series in Wrigley Field
Wednesday; Stan Hack's Cubs are
headed for their winningest sea-
son since capturing the pennant
with 98-56 in 1945.
Sparked by Banks
Foremost in the resurgence is
24-year-old Erni Banks, who will
be starting at hortstop for the
Nationals in the All-Star game at
Milwaukee next Tuesday.
After being obtained from the
Kansas City Monarchs, Banks hit
.275 as a rookie last year and has
ignored the so-called sophomore
jinx this season with a blistering
pace of .301 and 21 home runs.
96 Four-Baggers
As a team the Cubs have ham-
mered 96 homers including 20 in
their last 9 games.
The Cuts also have combined
luck with hustling spirit for win-
ning rallies. Their opponents have
scored first in 15 of the last 18
games, but Cub uprisings have ac-
counted for seven victories. They
have wrung out 16 one-run tri-
umphs in 29 such affairs.
Hack's men, too, have been the
best bargain hunters in the league,
sweeping 4 of 13 doubleheaders
and splitting the other 9. This, in
itself, has given them 17 victories

DETROIT VP) - Manager Bucky
Harris of the Detroit Tigers blames
his pitching staff for the club's
current woes
"Isn't it peculiar," Harris said,
"that a staff which looked so
good a month Fgo can look so bad
right now."
And it sure looks bad right now.
Ned Garver, key man on the
staff, hasn't won a start since
June 7.
Frank Lary's last starting vic-
tory was June 8.
Duke Maas has failed to win his
last three starts.
And that leaves only Steve Gro-
mek, with an 8-5 record, and
Billy Hoeft, with eight and three,
showing any stuff among the
"I think we have reason to be-
lieve things will improve," Harris
declared. "At least we can hope
so," he added.
"It would seem that Lary is
throwing too many pitches alike.
His control still isn't good enough
to put the ball just where he wants

it every time - but then a pitcher
as good as Ned Garver is having
the same trouble this year.
"Ned knows what he wants to do
with the ball but he can't always
get it to behave the way he wants.
"These are things that a pitcher
has to work out and I hope these
men are able to do it," Harris said.
Garver will be out to redeem
himself when the club meets the
third-place Chicago White Sox to-
day for the first of two games.
He'll face ex-Tiger Virgil Trucks
who holds an 8-5 season record.
Left fielder Jim Delsing prob-
ably will be out of the Tiger lineup
for both games. Delsing injured
his back in a game at Kansas City
last week.
