Streaking White Sox Batter Tribe, Lead AL For First Time Since 1947
CLEVELAND Theres no stopping Eddie Robinson. And theres no denying the Chicago White Sox, who trumped the Cleveland Indians, 7-1, behind Ken Holcombes sixhitter Saturday to move into the American League lead. The last time the ChiSox sat atop the Junior Circuit: May 10, 1947. In winning for the first time in four starts, Holcombe (2-1) knocked the Tribe out of the lead for the first time all season. The Sox lead Cleveland and Boston by percentage points. Chicago, which lost the first three games of its current road trip, has now won six in a row. Cleveland, which began the season 15-2, is 411 in its past 15 games. Holcombe had plenty of help. Robinson doubled and knocked in a pair of runs. He has 13 RBI in his past seven games and leads the American League with 33. Shortstop Chico Carrasquel had two hits and drove in three runs for the White Sox. Orestes Minoso extended his hit streak to 15 games. Indians starter Mike Garcia (2-4) gave up six runs in 2 1/3 innings. Since beating St. Louis in his first two starts of 1951, Garcia is 0-4 with a 6.93 ERA. AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere in the American League: Ted Williams went 5-for-5 with four runs scored, and Lou Boudreau doubled, homered and drove in five runs as the Red Sox routed the visiting Senators, 13-6. The game was a slugfest from the outset, with the Nats leading 6-5 after three innings. But a solo homer by pinch-hitter Clyde Volmer and a three-run shot by Boudreau highlighted a five-run fourth inning for the Red Sox, who never trailed thereafter. Billy Goodman scored three runs for Boston, while Dom DiMaggio added three hits and Walt Dropo knocked in three runs. Rookie sensation Mickey Mantle pounded a pair of home runs and Vic Raschi won his fourth consecutive start as the Yankees downed the visiting Athletics, 8-7. Mantle hit two-run homers in the first and fourth innings to help the Bombers to an 8-3 lead. The 19-year-old leads the majors with 15 circuit clouts, and is on pace to hit 68. Raschi (5-2) didnt pitch well, allowing six runs in seven innings, but pitched well enough to win. Reliever Tom Morgan hurled a scoreless ninth inning to earn his third save. The As Dave Philley had two hits and now has a 13-game hit streak. Johnny Groth had three hits, including a tiebreaking single in the bottom of the seventh, to lead the Tigers to a 4-3 win over the Browns. Marlin Stuart (2-0) got the win in relief, allowing two runs in 4 2/3 innings.

Giants Jansen Tops Philadelphia, Roberts With Westrums Help

PHILADELPHIA In a game featuring two All-Star pitchers, a .185-hitting catcher was the difference maker. Wes Westrums 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 fifth complete game and first shutout. He has allowed one earned run or fewer in nine of his 10 starts. But if not for Westrums fourth home run in the top of the fourth inning the game might still be deadlocked at 0-0. It was the only misstep by Roberts (3-2), who allowed one run in seven innings. The Giants second run, scored by Westrum on a triple by Alvin Dark, came against reliever Jim Konstanty. AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere in the National League: Andy Pafko erased a 2-0 deficit with a three -run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning as the Cubs rallied to beat the Pirates, 3-2. The Bucs staked starter Vern Law (3-2) to a 2-0 lead on Pete Castigliones run-scoring groundout in the third and Gus Bells fifth home run in the fourth. But Pafko hit his 11th home run with Randy Jackson and Hal Jeffcoat aboard to make a winner of Johnny Klippstein (3-1), who went 8 2/3 innings for the win. Chicagos Hank Sauer went 0-for-3, snapping his 17-game hit streak. Max Lanier tossed an eight-hitter and drove 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 ERA against Cincinnati). Howie Fox (2-4) took the loss, allowing three runs in six innings. Stan Musial went 1-for-4 for St. Louis, extending his hit streak to 14 games. Clyde King held Boston to two runs in eight innings, his longest outing of the year, as the Dodgers topped the Braves, 6-2. King (3-2) held Boston to two runs on six hits. 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-run double in a five-run eighth-inning rally. Sid Gordon went 3-for-5 for Boston.

Congressional Set-To Goes to Democrats, 7-3

WASHINGTON (AP) Rep. William McDonald Wheeler, a onetime farmer, school teacher and Air Forces captain, is also a pretty fair pitcher, by congressional standards. Friday night he again set the Republicans on their heels, 7-3. It was the fourth straight Democratic victory in the annual congressional baseball game and every year it has been the same story: Wheeler. Only one Republican, Rep. Boggs of Delaware, got the ball to the outfield against Wheeler in the first four innings he pitched. With only one inning to go in the five inning game, Wheeler retired with the Democrats ahead, 7-1. Rep. McCarthy of Minnesota took over the Democratic mound chores and immediately ran 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. Wilson of Indiana. And Republican hopes died once more. The game, sponsored by the Washington Star, was for the benefit of underprivileged children. It drew a paid crowd of 1,842.
