onship June 24.Twenty surviving players, including onecoach, of the 27-member group have been in-vited to attend the game in St. Louis that day.One former player almost certain to be thereis Billy Southwick, now manager of the BostonBraves. The Braves play the Cardinals that day.
THIS WAY TOBOX SCORES
Giants’ Jansen Tops Philadelphia, Roberts With Westrum’s Help
in in a run with a fly ball out as the Cardinals beat the visiting Reds, 3-1.Lanier improved to 4-1 (3-0 with a 1.00 ERAagainst Cincinnati). Howie Fox (2-4) took theloss, allowing three runs in six innings.Stan Musial went 1-for-4 for St. Louis, ex-tending his hit streak to 14 games.
Clyde King held
Boston to two runs in eightinnings, his longest outing of the year, as theDodgers topped the Braves, 6-2.King (3-2) held Boston to two runs on sixhits. He has a personal three-game win streak.Gil Hodges hit his fourth homer for the Bums,and Duke Snider had a tie-breaking two-rundouble in a five-run eighth-inning rally.Sid Gordon went 3-for-5 for Boston.
Congressional Set-ToGoes to Democrats, 7-3
Rep. WilliamMcDonald Wheeler, a onetime farmer, schoolteacher and Air Forces captain, is also a prettyfair pitcher, by congressional standards.Friday night he again set the Republicans ontheir heels, 7-3. It was the fourth straight De-mocratic victory in the annual congressional baseball game and every year it has been thesame story: Wheeler.Only one Republican, Rep. Boggs of Dela-ware, got the ball to the outfield against Wheeler in the first four innings he pitched.With only one inning to go in the five inninggame, Wheeler retired with the Democratsahead, 7-1.Rep. McCarthy of Minnesota took over theDemocratic mound chores
and immediatelyran into trouble. He allowed a couple of runs,had two on base and only one out.Back came Wheeler, as was allowed under congressional rules.He struck out first Boggs and then Rep. Wil-son of Indiana. And Republican hopes died oncemore.The game, sponsored by the Washington Star,was for the benefit of underprivileged children.It drew a paid crowd of 1,842.PHILADELPHIA
In a game featuring twoAll-Star pitchers, a .185-hitting catcher was thedifference maker.
Wes Westrum’s solo homer broke a scoreless
duel between Larry Jansen and Robin Roberts,and he later scored an insurance run as the Giants beat the Phillies, 2-0.Jansen (6-3) fired a five-hitter for his fifthcomplete game and first shutout. He has allowedone earned run or fewer in nine of his 10 starts.
But if not for Westrum’s fourth home run in
the top of the fourth inning the game might still be deadlocked at 0-0. It was the only misstep byRoberts (3-2), who allowed one run in seven in-
nings. The Giants’ second run, scored by We-
strum on a triple by Alvin Dark, came against
