No-H itGame
By PAUL BORMAN
Bob Visser and Dick Aster com-
bined to pitch a no-hitter last
night as the Senior Meds shut out
Allen Rumsey, 11-0, in I-M soft-j
ball action at South Ferry Field.
Visser pitched the first three
perfect innings to stretch his.num-
ber of hitless innings this season
to a phenomenal 22.
Aster ,ame in and took over the
Meds' pitching duties in the fourth
inning and mowed down the bat-
ters in the final three frames.
Aster also contributed to the cause
with a two-run homer in the
fourth inning.
Only Two Reach Base
Only two men reached base, one
on a walk and one on an error as
Visser struck out five, and Aster
fanned three while leading the
Meds to their fifth consecutive
win.
The thin, 6'612" righthander,
Visser, had a good fast ball and a
moving curve, but he didn't show a
change of pace. Aster, who throws
from the port side threw mostly
curves and a few fast balls in his
three inning stint.
Lloyd romped to. a 9-2 win over
Michigan House. Lloyd pitcher
Bob John allowed only two hits
and whiffed four while working
the full six innings.
Dunlap Hits Homer
Lloyd catcher Duane Dunlap
blasted the only home run of the
game in the first inning wtih the
bases empty.
In the only other game, Phar-
macy Grads closed the door to
Adams after giving up four runs
in the sixth inning to end Adams'
rally to squeak out a 10-9 victory.
Pharmacy had a big inning in
the fifth when it scored eight
runs on nine consecutive singles
to overcome Adams' 5-2 lead.

saving a 7-3 victory for the New

The Yanks, beaten twice by the
Tigers Wednesday, broke open a

sixth inning. The big blow was
Hank Bauer's ground-rule double
with the bases loaded, scoring two
runs.
Byrne appeared on the way to
his second complete game of the
season until the Tigers kicked up
a fuss in the ninth. With two gone,
singles by Harvey Kuenn, Jack
Phillips and Charley Maxwell
loaded the bases.
Manager Casey Stengel called
for Morgan to bail out Byrne and
he did it with one pitch. Kaline
grounded to Gil McDougald who
tossed to Billy Martin in time to
force Maxwell at second.

MILWAUKEE-Joe Adcock sent
home eight runs yesterday on a
single and two homers, one of them
a. grand blow, as he led the Mil-
waukee Braves to a 13-3 victory
over the New York Giants.
The grand slam homer was Ad-
cock's second four-run smash in
the last seven games. The two
homers were his 18th and 19th of.,
the year. Adcock now has hit 10
homers in his last 13 ball games.
A total of 15 hits by the Braves
gave winner pitcher Warren Spahn
plenty of support in taking his
ninth victory against seven losses

WASHINGTON-Ed Yost's sec-
ond home run of the game, belted
with two out and none aboard in
the ninth inning off Cal McLish,
lifted Washington to a 5-4 victory
over Cleveland last night.
Bunky Stewart pitched superbly
in relief to notch his fourth win,
limiting the Indians to two hits in
71/3 innings.
The Senators were forced to
battle back after Cleveland got four
quick runs off Hal Griggs in the
first two innings. They tied the
score against Mike Garcia in the
eighth inning when Clint Courtney
tripled to score Pedro Ramos,
running for Roy Sievers.

There were high expectations

been fulfilled. He turned out to
be one of baseball's great right-

Tfie glory days are gone and
the lightning has faded from his
famed fast ball, but Bob Feller
is still pitching for the Cleveland

"I can't tell you that," Feller
said. "It depends on how I feel.
In warm weather I feel pretty

After his playing days, Feller
hopes to keep some connection
with baseball. But not as a man-

prospect.

As PGA Tournament Opens

CANTON, Mass. (A)-Doug Ford
opens defense of his PGA Golf
Championship today, one of the
few men in the 127-man field
completely unconcerned about
Sam Snead.
"I wouldn't give 20 cents for
Sam's chances, the way he's driv-
ing the ball," the Yonkers, N. Y.,
pro said Thursday. "It's going to
take a good, straight driver to win
here-and Snead, from what I've
see, is all over the premises."
First Round Today
First-round matches are sched-
uled today in the five-day head-
to-head marathon over the Blue
Hill Country Club, 15 miles south
of Boston.
Snead, a three-time winner of
this event, is one of six former
champions challenging Ford, who
defeated Cary Middlecoff in last
year's finals at Detrot.
Sam said yesterday his broken
left hand had healed considerably
and he was back in almost top-
flight form. He is playing so much
like the old, Snead that he has

bee nmade a strong PGA favorite,
with everybody except Ford.
Ford's Favorites
Ford said his personal choices
foi- the championship, besides him-
self, are Ed Furgol, Tommy Bolt
and Shelley Mayfield.
The Blue Hill course is a 6,634-
yard layout which plays a par
36-35-71.
There has been much complaint'
about the course from the pros
during their practice rounds. Com-'
ing in for special comment were
the pitted fairways and "scraggly
greens" on the back nine.
Club officials claimed that a
long dry spell earlier in the sum-
mer forced them to let the grass
grow long, but that it would be
mowed before the first of tpday's
128 starters tees off.
