Kansas City loaded the sacks on
three singles, interrupted by a foul
out. Trucks bore down on the next
two batters ad got out of the jam
without harm.
Redlegs 4, Pirates 3
PITTSBURGH-Catcher Smoky
Burgess slammed a three-run
homer in the eighth inning to pace
the Cincinnati Redlegs to a 4-3
victory and a clean sweep of a
three-game series with the Pitts-
burgh Pirates.
The Redlegs moved to within
six percentage points of the idle
league-leading Milwaukee Braves.
Burgess' four-bagger was his
fifth of the season and the 100th
for the heavy hitting Redlegs. The
all-time major league record is 221
set by the New York Giants in
1947.

Giants 6, Dodgers 3
NEW YORK-Foster Castleman,
Jackie Brandt, Bill White and
Daryl Spencer smacked home runs
for "weak-hitting" New York as
the last-place Giants defeated
Brooklyn's third-place Dodgers,
6-3.
Castleman's and Brandt's hom-
ers were good for a 3-2 New York
lead in the fifth inning. Then
White unloaded and Spencer hit
for the circuit and a pair of eighth-
inning runs that sewed it up
against reliefer Don Bassent.
Mary Grissom was the winner,
gaining his first 1956 decision in
his 21st appearance.

VIRGIL TRUCKS
... does the impossible

DETROIT (A2)-Bill Veeck joined
the bidders yesterday for the De-
troit Tigers.
The former president of the
Cleveland Indians and St. Louis
Browns posted his $250,000 secur-]
ity bond and announced that hei
would submit a cash offer on1
Monday for the purchase of the
multimillion-dollar from WalterI
0. "Spike" Briggs, Jr.
In a report by Detroit Free Press1
writer Lyall Smith, Veeck wasr
quoted as saying he was "hopeful
... almost confident" that his bid
would be accepted. His twelve-man
syndicate included 10 Detroiters.
Veeck also stated that the group
intended to carry on many of the
policies instituted by the Briggs
family. "They made this city the
greatest franchise in baseball. We
certainly would do nothing to
change that . . . except to bring
the best possible brand of baseball
to Tiger fans.
Meanwhile, the Tigers' present
family feud was dragged into the
open again with the abrupt res-
ignation of Coach Joe Gordon.
An apologetic president Briggs
quickly shouldered "all the blame
for this entire mess."
It was a complete about-face for
the 44-year-old president, who fpr
several days has publicly censured
the club's field and front office
personnel.
Reached by telephone in Lake
Wales, Fla., Briggs said he "made
a lot of foolish statements without
thinking and I plan to apologize

personally to all persons concern-
ed."
Briggs' criticisms started several
days ago during the slump that
has carried the Tigers through 11f
games without a victory. He
blamed Manager Bucky Harris
and accused players of not hust-
ling.
Then later, Briggs challenged
the competence of General Man-
ager Harold "Muddy" Ruel and
coaches Gordon, Billy Hitchcock
and Jack Tighe. All the coaches

U

were infuriated. They said Briggs
should have the "courage" to call
them into his office and speak to
them, rather than to reprimand
them in the papers.
"I popped off," said Briggs. "I
wouldn't want to hurt Bucky,
Muddy or anyone else. But I've
been going through a pretty rough
period of time, with the ball club
up for sale and everything and
the club losing like it is. If I were
up there in Detroit I would ask
Gordon to stay on."
