Dodgers Charge Into Second Place On Branca’s Three-Hit Whitewash
PITTSBURGH — If the Dodgers rise any faster, they’ll have to worry less about the Giants and more about developing the bends. Ralph Branca tossed a three-hit shutout Friday night as Brooklyn beat Pittsburgh, 7-0. The Brooks’ 11th win in 13 games vaulted them past Philadelphia and into second place, three games behind New York. Such a scenario would have been unthinkable 15 days ago, when the Dodgers were mired in sixth place, 11 games off the pace. But they have excelled in all facets of the game over the past two weeks, averaging 6.7 runs per game, allowing 3.7 and throwing three shutouts in the past seven tilts. Branca (3-1) was dominant, limiting the Pirates to four base runners (three singles and a walk). Jackie Robinson swung the biggest bat for Brooklyn, with two singles, his seventh home run and two RBI. Andy Pafko also knocked in a pair for the Dodgers. Gil Hodges had two hits, but failed to drive in a run for the first time in 12 games. Duke Snider extended his hit streak to 15. Howie Pollet (1-4) had his second straight rough outing since joining the Bucs, allowing five runs on 11 hits in 6 1/3 innings. AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere in the National League: Johnny Klippstein fired a four-hitter and the slumping Giants failed to score for the third time in five games as Chicago eased past visiting New York, 2-0. Klippstein (4-3) held the Giants to four singles. Hal Jeffcoat staked him to a 1-0 lead with a run-scoring single in the bottom of the third. Klippstein gave himself an insurance run in the seventh, when his groundout scored Bob Ramazzotti, who had led off the frame with a three-bagger. Giants starter Sal Maglie (8-5) lost his third consecutive start, allowing two runs (one earned) in seven innings. The Giants are 3-11 in their past 14 games. Harry Perkowski threw his first career shutout and Ted Kluszewski went 4-for-4 with two RBI as the host Reds pounded the Phillies, 10-0. Perkowski (3-1) twirled a three-hitter with five strikeouts. Bobby Adams also had four hits for Cincinnati. Phils starter Jocko Thompson (1-6) allowed four runs in two innings and suffered the loss. Backed by Stan Musial’s two homers and four RBI, Tom Poholsky (7-3) threw a fourhitter and won his seventh consecutive decision as the host Cardinals defeated the Braves, 4-1. Musial leads the NL in batting, is tied for the lead in RBI, and is second in circuit clouts. Boston’s Chet Nichols (2-3) went the route. Tommy Holmes is 0-2 since assuming managerial duties from Billy Southworth.

Reynolds Continues to Torment Tribe in 4-3 Yanks’ Win
NEW YORK — Yankees pitcher Ed Lopat has gained a deserved reputation as an Indian killer. Teammate Allie Reynolds may soon join him in that distinction. Reynolds outdueled Bob Feller on Friday night, hurling the Yankees to a 4-3 victory and vanquishing league-leading Cleveland for the third time in three starts this season. Reynolds (6-4) scattered nine hits and fanned nine in going the distance. He is 3-0 with three complete games and a 1.00 ERA against the Tribe in 1951. Second baseman and No. 8 hitter Jerry Coleman erased a 1-0 Cleveland lead with a threerun home run in the second inning. Johnny Mize belted a round-tripper for a 4-1 lead in the third. Reynolds took it from there, holding off the Indians despite an RBI single by Ray Boone and a solo home run by Al Rosen — the first of Rosen’s 49 career homers to be struck at Yankee Stadium. Feller (5-3) allowed four runs in six innings and lost his second start in a row. AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere in the American League: Ted Gray pitched eight shutout innings and Pat Mullin knocked in the game’s only run as the Tigers slipped past the host Senators, 1-0. Gray (6-6) won his fourth straight start despite allowing eight hits and six walks. Hank Borowy pitched the ninth for his first save. Fred Sanford (2-3), who allowed one run in seven innings, was the hard-luck loser. Mel Parnell threw his third consecutive complete game win and Ted Williams tagged his 13th homer as the Red Sox beat the visiting White Sox, 6-1. Parnell (7-3) lowered his ERA to 2.75, third in the AL. Chicago starter Randy Gumpert (43) hit his first career homer, but was sabotaged by three ChiSox errors, two by shortstop Chico Carrasquel, that resulted in five unearned runs. Catcher Matt Batts went 5-for-5 as the visiting Browns mauled the A’s, 11-2. Batts scored four runs and right fielder Ken Wood drove in four. St. Louis, which won just two of its first 26 road games, captured its second in its past four tries.

Notes on the Scorecard

Meyer Returns Kiner To Pittsburgh Outfield
PITTSBURGH (AP) – Manager Bill Meyer of the Pittsburgh Pirates said Friday that Ralph Kiner will be shifted from first base to his old left field post in today’s game against the Brooklyn Dodgers. He replaces George Metkovich. Meyer will alternate first basemen Rocky Nelson and Jack Phillips against right and left hand pitching respectively. Meyer said he and Kiner decided that with two first basemen sitting on the bench the club would benefit by Ralph’s return to the outfield. “In my opinion, the fans haven’t been fair with Ralph,” Meyer said. “They have been riding him probably without realizing that he has tried to do his duty and to help our ball club. “Ralph’s a swell fellow and I hope the fans take this move the way they should. He has given first base a real effort, but after so many years in the outfield, it is tough for anyone to make the change that Kiner tried.” The Phillies announced they would raise their first National League pennant in 36 years, earned last season, at Shibe Park next Tuesday. The flag will be raised in ceremonies before a night game with the Boston Braves.

Wants Next Commish To Have New Focus
NEW YORK (AP) – P.K. Wrigley, Jr., owner of the Chicago Cubs, called Friday for a new charter for the baseball commissioner’s job as a search for a successor to A.B. Chandler began in earnest. “Before we can pick the man we must decide what the job is,” said Wrigley in a telephone interview from Chicago. “Up to now the duties have been negative. The baseball commissioner should not be a policeman. He should be a leader.” Chandler resigned effective July 15. At that time control of baseball will pass into the hands of an executive committee composed of Will Harridge, American League president; Ford Frick, National League president; Tom Yawkey, Boston Red Sox, and Warren Giles, Cincinnati Reds. Wrigley is a member of the screening committee appointed to sift candidates for Chandler’s job. Their work is complete, he said, and a list has been drawn up. Now it is up to baseball owners to make their decision. There have been two trends of thought in baseball. One is to get a national figure. The name of Jim Farley, former postmaster general, has been heard most frequently in this connecCOMMISSIONER, Page 2

tion. The other is to get a baseball man. George Trautman, head of the minors, probably leads this list. “The picture has changed completely in the 31 years since Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis became our first commissioner,” said Wrigley. “We need a new set of specifications for the job. When we get that we can decide on a man to fit them.” Others on the screening committee with Wrig-

ley are Del Webb of the New York Yankees, Ellis Ryan of the Cleveland Indians and Lou Perini of the Boston Braves. Wrigley declined to reveal any of the names on the prepared list, but he indicated it was a lengthy one. Sentiment seemed unanimous that baseball would not be in any hurry to pick a successor to Chandler. Both leagues will meet in Detroit on July 9. When Landis died, an executive committee ran baseball from December of 1944 until April of 1945 when Chandler was elected.

CHICAGO (AP) – All leaders held their positions Friday as the 20-day All-Star poll moved into its final week. The nationwide balloting to decide the starting National and American League lineups for the All-Star game at Detroit on July 10 will end at midnight next Friday. The total vote now has reached 802,012, indicating last year’s final tabulation of 3,167,362 will be topped.
