Wow!  A combined 12 doubles and 13 home runs in that Braves-Reds double-dip.

I'm guessing a few hurlers might have also been treated for whiplash, while they were icing their arms.

Good to see Yogi back and in suffering no ill effects (4-4 at the plate)

Casey, just checked out your website...AWESOME job.

Are you using iScore's league website to help you with league leaders and standings? That is awesome. Keep up the good work and excellent reporting.

I'm using iScore but wait, is there a league website feature?! I know there is a team add-on but I don't want to purchase 16 team websites. If there is a league version, I'm all in. Currently, I i just do league leaders by adding all stats to a spreadsheet and sort. I only do that weekly (in 1953 time) so its not too bad. BUT what IS a time killer is uploading team/player stats after each 1953 day.

Thanks for checking out my site, though, and for the kind words!

APRIL 28, 1953

DODGERS CONTINUE WINNING WAYS, DEFEAT REDLEGS

Roy CampanellaThe Brooklyn Dodgers continued to display their offensive dominance, scoring fourteen runs against the Redlegs of Cincinnati for their seventh straight win. Five Dodger hitters recorded two or more hits with catcher Roy Campanella leading the charge with four. Cincy did manage to score nine runs of their own but was simply overmatched in the batter's box.

Facing an early 2-0 deficit in the second, Carl Furillo singled in Campanella. Billy Cox followed with a two-run home run to left, his third long ball of the year. Brooklyn added a pair of runs in the third thanks to a two-run double by Campanella and a two-run home run by Gil Hodges, his sixth of the season. Cincy hung tough, always within striking distance, but a four-run fifth provided the Dodgers with a big enough cushion to hold on.

The two teams combined for thirteen extra-base hits. Gus Bell collected three hits, including a home run and a double. Hot hitting Bobby Adams added three hits to raise his season average to .377. Three of Campanella's four hits were doubles and now has forty-nine total bases, second only to his teammate Duke Snider, who has fifty-one. Billy Loes grabbed the sloppy win, tossing six innings while giving up eleven hits and six earned runs, eight total.

WILSON DOES IT ALL IN WIN

Jim WilsonMilwaukee pitcher Jim Wilson contributed on the mound and in the batter's box today in the 7-3 win over the New York Giants. Wilson, who had pitched well in his previous start despite only tossing five innings, threw eight innings of six hit ball, limiting the Giants to three runs. He helped his own cause, cranking out three hits including a two-run home run, to help lead his team to victory.

The Braves scored two runs in the third thanks to an RBI double by Eddie Mathews, which was followed up by a run scoring single from Sid Gordon. Wilson's two-run four-bagger came in the fourth to give Milwaukee a 4-0. The Giants got a run back in the bottom of the inning when Whitey Lockman hit a solo home run. Hank Thompson hit a long fly that just made it over the wall in the sixth to cut the deficit in half. Thompson did it again in the eighth, hitting his second home run, another solo shot, to get New York within one, but Milwaukee added three insurance runs in the ninth to pull away.

Wilson picked up his second win of the year. He struck out seven Giants, giving him eleven punch-outs in thirteen innings. His three hits at the plate give him five total in just seven at-bats, good for a .714 batting average. Hank Thompson's two home runs up his total to five on the season.

PHILS SNAP EIGHT GAME LOSING STREAK, BEAT CARDS

Karl DrewsThe Phillies overcame a first inning deficit to defeat the Cardinals and put an end to their eight game losing streak. Philadelphia received strong pitching from Karl Drews and timely hitting from Connie Ryan and Johnny Wyrostek. The St. Louis offense failed to generate much offense, recording just eight hits and two runs.

The Cardinals jumped ahead early, thanks to a two-run home run from Red Schoendienst in the first inning. Drews, who gave up three straight hits to start the game, looked shaky but quickly regained his composure and got out of the inning without any further damage. Philly tied the game in the third courtesy of an RBI single from Ryan and a bases loaded walk from Smoky Burgess. Wyrostek provided the go-ahead run in the sixth when he doubled in Burgess. Philly scored two more runs in the seventh and one in the eighth to put St. Louis away.

Drews threw eight innings, giving up just the pair of first inning runs while striking out five. Ryan finished with two hits and two RBIs. Richie Ashburn, moved up in the lineup to lead-off, collected three hits, raising his average to .354. St. Louis stars Stan Musial and Enos Slaughter continued their early season struggles, combining for just two hits. The pair are batting .209 and .160 respectively.

THOMAS HOMERS AGAIN BUT PIRATES FALL IN NINTH

Clyde McCulloughFrank Thomas smacked his league leading tenth home run but it was not enough for the Pirates to get past the Cubs. Pittsburgh was on top for much of the name, nursing a small lead through six when Chicago finally evened the score. Chicago completed the comeback in the ninth, scoring a pair to claim the victory.

Already up 2-1 after two, Pittsburgh added to their lead in the third. With a man on, Frank Thomas strode to the plate and crushed the Bob Rush pitch for a two-run home run to put the Bucs up 4-1. The score remained the same until the sixth when the Cubs got within a run. With Randy Jackson on first, Clyde McCullough delivered a two-run round tripper. Chicago tied the game in the seventh on a fielder's choice and took the lead in the top of the ninth. With two outs, the Cubs drew two walks to put Jackson in scoring position. The next batter, Roy Smalley, drilled an RBI single and then later came around to score on a fielding error by Johnny O'Brien.

Reliever Bob Kelly picked up the win after tossing two scoreless innings. Dee Fondy tallied three hits while three other Cubs grabbed a pair of hits. In addition to his home run, McCullough also hit a triple. Four Pirates finished with at least two hits.

SENS OVERCOME EARLY DEFICIT, BEAT CHISOX

Pete RunnelsThe Senators were down early but rallied late to pick up their seventh win of the season, defeating the White Sox 6-5. Chicago entered the game riding a three-game winning streak and looked poised early on to extend it, jumping all over Sonny Consuegra in the first. Their first three hitters all reached base safely, loading the bags for Jim Rivera. A shallow fly kept the bases loaded but Sam Mele, the next batter, delivered in a big way. Facing a 3-1 count, Mele crushed the Consuegra pitch into center for a grand slam, the second of his career.

Consuegra settled down, though, and the Senators went to work on their comeback. In the fifth inning, Washington scored three runs thanks to a run scoring single by Eddie Yost and a two-run double by Pete Runnels. The Cuban right-hander kept Chicago in check until the sixth when Shem Lollar singled in Minnie Minosa to extend their lead 5-3. The Senators again fought back in the seventh when Runnels singled in a run to bring his team within a run. With two on and two out, Jackie Jensen smoked a two-run double to give Washington their first lead of the day, 6-5.

Julio Moreno relieved Consuegra in the eighth and finished the job, allowing just one hit and no runs over the last two innings and securing the win.

ROSEN DRIVES IN FIVE IN INDIANS WIN

Al RosenCleveland slugger Al Rosen cracked his first home run of the season and drove in five runs in the win over Philadelphia. Veteran hurler Bob Feller was effective, though not spectacular, in his start, limiting the Athletics to four runs and earning his second win of the year. The Indians jumped out early, scoring three runs in the first thanks to Rosen's three-run home run. The long ball snaps an early season power outage for the first baseman which saw the slugger homerless through eleven games.

The A's bounced back in the fourth when Pete Suder cracked a two-run home run and Joe DeMaestri drove in the tying run. Cleveland jumped back on top in the sixth when a pair of runs came in to score on a Rosen single. Philadelphia's own slugger, Gus Zernial, smacked a solo home run in the seventh to bring the A's within a run, but Cleveland responded with two in the bottom of the inning to give themselves some breathing room.

Bob Hooper relieved Feller in the eighth and pitched two scoreless innings for the save. The Indians are now 9-3 on the season and sit atop the American League standings. Joe Astroth recorded a pinch-hit double in the ninth and is now batting .514 on the year.

MARLOWE NEARLY PERFECT, STYMIES RED SOX

Dick MarloweDick Marlowe was perfect through six innings, retiring all eighteen Boston batters he faced without allowing one to reach first. Although the Red Sox broke through in the seventh, Marlowe, and his Tiger teammates, picked up the win. Detroit scored three runs in the first, thanks to an RBI double from Jim Delsing and a two-run double from Bob Nieman. They grabbed a fourth run in the sixth when Harvey Kuenn hit a bases loaded sacrifice fly to score Matt Batts.

Boston had no answer for Marlowe going into the seventh. The slight of frame youngster kept the Red Sox batters off-balance, mixing his pitches and striking out four. He retired Jim Piersall to open the seventh but ran into trouble against Sammy White. With one swing of the bat, White deposited the Marlowe fast ball over the left field fence, breaking up the perfect game, no-hitter, and shut out. George Kell followed with a double and Milt Bolling hit a single before Marlowe closed out the inning. The hurler came back in the eighth and struck out two before hitting the showers for the day. Dave Madison finished off the game, pitching a scoreless ninth.

The win was Marlowe's first of the season; his final line of eight innings, three hits, and seven strikeouts is easily the best of his young career. Jim Delsing collected four hits, including two doubles, and drove in a pair of runs. Hal Brown lasted just five innings in the loss for Boston.

TRUCKS SHINES IN 2-1 WIN OVER YANKS

Virgil TrucksVeteran hurler Virgil Trucks was sharp in his start against the Yankees, going the distance while only allowing one run. The win is Trucks' first after recording three straight no-decisions to begin the season. New York's own starter, Vic Rashi, also pitched well but his supporting offense could not push more than a run past home plate.

St. Louis was the first to put a run on the board in the bottom of the third. With runners on second and third with two outs, Vic Wertz hit a comebacker to Rashi who misplayed the ball, allowing Trucks to score. The Yankees got the run back in the fourth when Yogi Berra smacked his second home run of the year. The teams remained tied until the seventh when St. Louis' Bob Elliot hit a run scoring single to left. That run proved the difference as both clubs failed to score any further runs.

Trucks allowed seven hits and walked three batters in the win. Don Lenhardt recorded three hits and a walk in his four plate appearances, raising his batting average to .462 in part-time play. The win for St. Louis bumps them over .500 on the year. Yogi Berra continues to show no rust since returning from injury, grabbing two hits including a home run.

THOMPSON WALK-OFF WINS IT IN TENTH

Don ThompsonToday's matinée at Ebbets Field was a wild affair, filled with comebacks, costly gaffes, and extra inning heroics as the Dodgers and Redlegs squared off. Brooklyn jumped out to an early lead when Duke Snider, arguably the league's most dangerous hitter this season, drove in a pair of run in the third inning. The Dodgers added to their lead in the fifth thanks to a three-run home run from Carl Furillo and another RBI from Snider.

The Bums seemingly were in control of the game, leading 6-1 through five innings. The Redlegs rallied in the sixth, though, when Gus Bell hit a two-run home run and Hobie Landrith crushed a three-run blast to tie the game. The score remained knotted until the top of the ninth when the usually sure-gloved Snider misplayed a fly ball to center, resulting in Bobby Adams standing at second. Ted Kluszewski eventually hit a single to score Adams and give Cincinnati their first lead. Redlegs reliever Clyde King entered the game in the bottom of the ninth to secure the win but surrendered a run scoring triple to Jackie Robinson.

Cincy went down without a fight in the tenth, leaving the door open for Brooklyn to scoop up a win. With one on and one out, Don Thompson strode to the plate. Thompson, in for Gil Hodges who was out due to a stomach virus, sat on a King fastball and blasted it over the fence in right. The home run was Thompson's first of his career and the Brooklyn bat boy retrieved the souvenir for the backup outfielder. Snider finished with two hits to raise his average to .477 and three RBIs, raising his league leading total to 24.

MAGLIE ONE-HITS BRAVES IN 1-0 NAIL BITER

Sal MaglieHits were at a premium today at the Polo Grounds as Sal Maglie and Max Surkont limited the batters to a total of five base knocks. Surkont was sharp, tossing all nine innings while allowing just one run, but Maglie was better. The 36-year old pitcher, who celebrated a birthday days earlier, pitched all nine innings and gave up just one hit.

Both pitchers kept runs from scoring through six innings, while Maglie had a no-hitter going. In the top of the seventh, Sid Gordan lead off the inning with a single, putting an end to any historical achievement. Maglie rebounded, though, and retired the next three batters, two on strike outs. In the bottom of the inning, Bobby Thomson lead off with a solo home run, breaking the scoreless tie and busting up Surkont's shut out bid. The one run would be it for both clubs as the two teams finished off the last two innings without a baserunner.

Maglie had struggled in his last two starts, allowing thirteen earned runs in ten innings. The shutout lowers his ERA to 6.16. Surkont was the tough luck loser and is now 1-2 on the year despite a 3.10 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. The win by New York breaks a four game losing streak.

ENNIS GRAND SLAM CARRIES PHILLIES

Del EnnisSt. Louis ace Gerry Staley looked to extend his early season mark to 4-0 but defensive miscues proved his undoing, as the Cardinals lost to the Phillies, 11-4. Staley lasted just over two innings, but was chased from the game after a five-run explosion in the third. After a solo home run by Connie Ryan to lead off the third, a costly error by Ray Jablonski prolonged the inning. After loading the bases, Staley himself committed an error that allowed Richie Ashburn to score. Philadelphia's Johnny Wyrostek followed with a two-run single and Willie Jones added another RBI hit.

Philly added a pair of runs in the fourth when Earl Torgeson tripled in Ashburn and Hamner drove in Torgeson. With the score 7-2, the Phils continued to pile on in the fifth. With the bases loaded and one out, reliever Cliff Chambers served up a long ball to Del Ennis, his third career grand slam. With the nine run lead, starter Jim Konstanty pitched with confidence and ease, picking up his second win of the year.

Five Phillies finished with two hits. Philadelphia picked up its second straight win after losing eight in a row. The lone bright spot for St. Louis was Solly Hemus who grabbed three hits in the loss and raised his average to .295. Musial and Slaughter continue to struggled, combing for just two hits.

O'CONNELL PLAYS HERO IN NINTH, PIRATES TRUMP CUBS

Danny O'ConnellThe Chicago Cubs rallied late but the bullpen could not preserve the lead, surrendering a walk-off double to Danny O'Connell and the Pirates. Pittsburgh led early in the game thanks to a big third inning. With the score tied 1-1, the Pirates put runners on first and third with no outs. O'Connell smacked a run scoring single which was followed by an RBI double from Ralph Kiner. Frank Thomas struck out with runners on second and third, but Paul Smith drove them both in with a single to cap a four run inning.

Chicago's Randy Jackson crushed a solo home run in the fourth and hit an RBI single in the sixth to bring the Cubs to within a pair. In the top of the eighth, Jackson singled and Toby Atwell walked to give Chicago runners on first and second. With two out, Preston Ward was called upon to pinch hit for pitcher Paul Minner. The big lefty stepped into the box and promptly deposited the Cal Hogue change-up into the stands, giving the Cubs a 6-5 lead. Reliever Jim Willis entered the game in the eighth to close out the game but ran into trouble in the ninth. Mike Sandlock walked to lead off the inning, followed by Eddie O'Brien singling up the middle. Dick Cole pinched hit for Hogue and laid down a beauty of a bunt for a single, loading the bases. Cal Abrams hit a long fly ball that was caught in left field but deep enough to score Sandlock for the tying run. O'Connell followed with a double off the wall that scored O'Brien, the winning run.

The victory brings the Pirates within two wins of .500. Paul Smith recorded two hits, raising his average to .440 through 12 games. Chicago's Randy Jackson finished with three hits, including his first home run, and a pair of RBIs. Jim Willis was credited with the loss and is now 0-2 and has blown three saves.

SIMA SHARP IN SPOT START

Al SimaAl Sima, making a spot start today for the Senators, picked up his first win of the season, tossing eight innings of one-run ball. The reliever, who had three previous appearances out of the bullpen, scattered seven hits while walking five, but kept the White Sox off-balanced throughout the game.

The White Sox scored their sole run in the first after Sima loaded the bases with one out. Sam Mele displayed great patience at the plate, drawing a walk that forced in Nellie Fox. Chicago starter Tommy Byrne also made his first start of the season and pitched well, allowing just a pair of runs on four hits over nine innings. The veteran lefty had both his good and bad stuff going, walking seven Sens while striking out ten. Washington grabbed a run in the first thanks to a sacrifice fly from Jackie Jensen. In the third, with Eddie Yost on first, Pete Runnells smacked a triple to give the Senators a 2-1 lead. There was nothing else doing for either team as neither managed another run. Sonny Dixon worked a scoreless ninth to pick up his first save of the season.

The Walking Man, Eddie Yost, added two more free passes to his total and now has twenty-three walks on the year. With the win, Washington now sits at .500 on the year. Nellie Fox grabbed four hits in the loss while Minnie Minoso finished with a pair, upping his season average to .414.

A'S COME FROM BEHIND, TAKE IT IN THE ELEVENTH

Eddie RobinsonIt was a wild one at Cleveland Stadium today as the Indians overcame a four run deficit late in the game only to squander the opportunity in the eleventh. Rookie reliever Dave Hoskins pitched poorly in the later frames, allowing the Athletics to tie, and ultimately, win the game.

Philadelphia jumped to an early lead, scoring four runs in the first. Dave Philley highlighted the inning with a three run home run. The A's kept the Tribe off of the scoreboard through three, but Cleveland managed to chip away at the deficit in the fourth. Back-to-back doubles by Larry Doby and Ray Boone plated to runs and helped Cleveland get within two runs. In the top of the seventh, Philley singled in an insurance run to give the A's a three run lead. Cleveland rallied, though, and in the bottom of the inning tied the game. Boone led off with a home run and Bill Glynn followed with a double. Jim Hegan grounded out, bringing pinch hitter Luke Easter to the plate. The aging slugger crushed the Bobby Shantz fastball for a two-run home run, tying the game. Joe Coleman came in for relief and promptly loaded the bases. With two outs, Doby drew a walk that forced in the go ahead run.

Hoskins entered the game in the eighth and worked a scoreless inning. Down to their last three outs, Philly loaded the bases in the ninth. With one out, Eddie Robinson singled in Joe DeMaestri to tie the game. Cleveland was unable to score in the bottom of the ninth, forcing extra innings. In the eleventh, with Hoskins still on the mound, Philly put runners on first and third with one out. Robinson again played the hero, doubling in a pair; he would later score on a Gus Zernial sacrifice fly. Carl Scheib, in since the ninth, retired the Indians in order to pick up the win.

HOEFT MARVELLOUS IN SHUTOUT OVER SOX

Billy HoeftDetroit Tiger Billy Hoeft broke out of his losing streak in a big way, shutting out the Boston Red Sox for his first win in four starts. The twenty-one year old southpaw was in cruise control for much of the game, surrendering just four hits while walking a pair. The only threat came in the first when Boston had runners on second and third with two outs. With Sammy White at the plate, Hoeft got the catcher to ground harmlessly out to third.

Detroit was able to support their pitcher, scoring four runs. The Tigers put a pair on the board in the fourth when Bud Souchock blasted a two-run home run, his first of the year. The hometown nine scored a second pair of runs in the seventh when Owen Friend, in for Harvey Kuenn, singled in Don Lund and Johnny Pesky doubled in Friend.

In addition to the win, Hoeft struck out six Boston batters. The shutout lowers his ERA to 3.62 to go with a 1.11 WHIP. Harvey Kuenn left the game in the fifth with a minor ankle sprain and is expected to sit out the next game. Boston's Billy Goodman returned from injury and showed some rust, going hitless in his four at-bats. The loss drops the Red Sox to 8-8 on the year.

MANTLE HOME RUN KEY IN YANKS WIN

Mickey MantleMickey Mantle, the young Yankee slugger, smashed his third home run of the season to help his club defeat the St. Louis Browns. The twenty-one year old also added a pair of singles while driving in two runs in a productive day at the plate. New York starter Jim McDonald was effective over his eight innings, allowing three runs while scattering eleven hits.

St. Louis struck first, scoring a run in the second off a Duane Pillette fielder's choice. New York responded in the fifth when Hank Bauer hit a two-out RBI single to tie the game. Mantle followed with a towering home run to give New York a 3-1 lead. St. Louis grabbed a run back in the bottom half of the inning thanks to a Vic Wertz RBI single. New York added a run in the sixth courtesy an Charlie Silvera RBI triple. St. Louis again responded in the bottom half of the inning, scoring a run off a single by Johnny Groth.

The Browns would get no closer, going down quietly in the last three innings. New York reliever Ewell Blackwell struck out the side in the ninth to earn his first save of the year. St. Louis starter Duane Pillette left the game in the fifth after complaining about shoulder stiffness. The club expects him to miss a couple starts while he recovers.

 I love it. So easy to use and I can knock out a game in about 15 minute, give or take a few minutes. The automatic stat keeping is also very nice. There are a few things I wish they'd add, like standings, league leaders, and a bit more informative boxscores, but those things might be coming soon.

 

Thanks for following!

REDLEGS COME THROUGH IN TENTH, DEFEAT STREAKING DODGERS

Jim GreengrassBrooklyn's eight game win streak came to an end today, despite a game tying home run by Roy Campanella in the bottom of the ninth. Cincinnati, losers of three straight, received strong pitching from veteran Ken Raffensberger. The crafty southpaw tossed seven innings of three-hit, two-run ball, keeping in check one of the most potent offenses in the early baseball season.

With the game scoreless through three, the Redlegs received a shot of offense from Jim Greengrass, back from a two game injury. With two on and one out, Preacher Roe left a ball up in the strike zone that Greengrass deposited into the center field stands. Raffensberger was working on a shutout until Brooklyn finally broke through in the seventh. With two outs and Duke Snider on second, Campanella smoked an RBI single to right. Gil Hodges followed with a run scoring double to bring the Dodgers to within one. Eddie Erautt came in for relief in the eighth and retired the side in order, but surrendered the game tying home run to Campanella in the ninth. Willard Marshall led off the extra frame with a triple and scored when Andy Seminick hit a sacrifice fly to right. Pinch hitter Bob Marquis smacked a solo home run for insurance and reliever Ernie Nevel closed out the tenth to pick up the save.

Greengrass showed no ill-effects of his injury, collecting two hits including a home run while driving in three. Snider and Campanella continue their hot hitting, each finishing with a pair of hits. Ben Wade was tagged with the loss, giving up two runs in two innings. Raffensberger remains winless in the season despite his strong effort on the mound.

JANSEN, GIANTS STYMIE BRAVES BATS

Larry JansenWinless in his previous three starts, Giants starter Larry Jansen had his work cut out for him against a potent Braves offense. The seven-year veteran was sharp, though, tossing eight innings of seven hit, two run ball while walking none. The Braves touched up Jansen early, plating their only two runs in the third thanks to a two run double by Sid Gordon. Jansen went on to retire fourteen of the next fifteen batters he faced.

The New York offense was effective against Milwaukee's Vern Bickford who got a spot start for the ailing Warren Spahn. The Giants ran the righty from the game in the middle of the fifth after Bickford walked five hitters and allowed three runs. Lew Burdette relieved the struggling starter and quieted the bats for the remainder of the game, holding the Giants to one hit over the next three and two-thirds innings. Jansen was lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth, opening the door for Hoyt Wilhelm to pick up a save. The knuckleballer pitched a scoreless ninth, ending the game after inducing Del Crandall into a double play.

Eddie Matthews picked up two hits, both doubles, in the loss and is now batting .358 on the season. Bobby Thomson collected his fourteenth RBI of the year and leads the club, one ahead of Hank Thompson and two ahead of Monte Irvin. Jansen grabbed his first win of the year while Wilhelm now has four saves. New York are winners of two straight and are now at .500 for the year.

ROBERTS ROCKED IN FOURTH, CARDS WALK AWAY WITH WIN

Enos SlaughterThe St. Louis bats came alive, knocking around and chasing star pitcher Robin Roberts from today's game at Shibe Park. Philadelphia was able to score a half-dozen runs against Harvey Haddix but the Cardinals offense was simply too much for the Phillies to overcome.

Philadelphia got on the board first, scoring a run in the bottom of the third when Richie Ashburn crossed home plate on a Steve Bilko error. The one run lead remained only briefly thanks to a huge fourth inning that saw the Cardinals score seven runs. The offensive explosion was highlighted by two-run double by Del Rice. Roberts was yanked with one out in the inning, leaving the game with runners on first and third. Reliever Andy Hansen proceeded to walk Red Schoendienst to load the bases and then offer a free pass to Enos Slaughter, forcing in another run. St. Louis scored four more runs in the eighth, punctuated by a pair of two-run doubles from Slaughter and Bilko. Philadelphia made a modest attempt at a rally in the bottom half of the inning when Granny Hamner and Willie Jones each smacked a two-run home run.

Harvey Haddix picked up the win, his third, despite allowing six runs, five earned. He tossed all nine innings and allowed ten hits while only walking one Cardinal. Slaughter finished the day with three hits, including two doubles, and three RBIs; Bilko also finished the day with three RBIs. Granny Hamner's home run was his fifth of the year.

LINDELL EXCELS ON MOUND, AT THE PLATE IN BUCS WIN

Johnny LindellPittsburgh's Johnny Lindell, the former outfielder and now member of the rotation, contributed in all aspects of today's game against the Cubs, picking up a win on the mound while rapping out five hits at the plate, including his first home run of the season. The thirty-six year old veteran has been an early season surprise for the Bucs, picking up his third win of the year while raising his batting average to a remarkable .450.

Chicago took the lead early with a pair of runs in the first after an error by Dick Cole allowed one run to score and set up another to cross home when Randy Jackson hit a single. Pittsburgh responded in the third when Mike Sandlock drove Cole in and Danny O'Connell hit a bases loaded double to plate two more runs. The Pirates tacked on an additional two runs in the fourth thanks to a two-run double by Lindell. Chicago cut the deficit to two runs after a run in seventh, but Pittsburgh responded quickly in the eighth when Lindell smacked a solo home run, his fifth hit, and Catfish Metkovich doubled in Johnny O'Brien.

Lindell left the game with two outs in the ninth after surrendering a run and putting runners on first and second. Reliever Johnny Hetki entered the game and recorded the final out, preserving the win for the Pirates. The Pirates recorded seventeen hits with five belonging to Lindell and three to Metkovich. Frank Baumholtz and Eddie Miksis each collected two hits in a losing effort for the Cubs. Warren Hacker was tagged with his second loss of the year.

YANKEES WIN BARN BURNER BEHIND WOODLING, COLLINS

Joe CollinsNeither Whitey Ford or Saul Rogovin were sharp today, allowing five and six earned runs respectively. For Ford, the five runs nearly doubled his season total through four starts and raised his ERA from 1.91 to 2.86. Despite the rough start by both pitchers, each escaped without adding a loss to their record, as timely hitting and four-run deficits were overcome. When the dust settled, New York grabbed a win thanks to ninth inning heroics.

The Yankees grabbed an early four run lead, scoring a pair of runs in the second and third innings. Gil McDougald and Hank Bauer each rapped an RBI single while Joe Collins smacked his second home run of the year, a two-run long ball in the third. Chicago came back in the fourth when Sherm Lollar kicked off the rally with a single that scored two runs. Chico Carrasquel cracked a run scoring single and Nellie Fox displayed patience at the plate, drawing a bases loaded walk to force in the tying run. New York reclaimed the lead, scoring another four runs three innings, this time highlighted by a Collins triple that scored two runs. The White Sox once again rallied, tying the game in the eighth when Fox hit a two-run single and Bob Boyd drove Carrasquel in from third. The Yankees quickly took the lead again in the ninth when Gene Woodling hit a two-run bomb, his first of the year. Chicago's offense tried for a third comeback in the bottom of the ninth, putting two runners on with one out, but reliever Allie Reynolds recorded the final two outs to preserve the New York win.

Bob Kuzava picked up the win despite pitching one inning of three-run ball. Reynolds grabbed his first save of the year. Mantle and Woodling each finished with three hits and Collins recorded four RBIs to go with his home run and triple. Despite collecting thirteen hits, Chicago finished with no extra-base knocks. Gene Bearden was tagged with the loss.

TIGERS RALLY IN NINTH, STEAL WIN FROM ATHLETICS

Ned GarverDetroit starter Ned Garver was faced with his first loss of the season, but his teammates staged an inspired comeback in the bottom of the ninth to get their hurler his fourth win of the year. Garver, who is coming off a disappointing 1952 season after winning twenty games in 1951, has been the one constant for Detroit this year, accounting for half of the Tigers' eight wins while posting a 2.16 ERA.

Philly starter Harry Byrd and Garver each allowed a run in the first, but Detroit claimed the game's first lead in the third. With the bases loaded and two outs, Walt Dropo drew a free pass to force in Garver, who himself had drawn a walk. The one run lead held until the seventh when Philadelphia's Dave Philley doubled in Allie Reynolds. The following inning, A's slugger Gus Zernial cranked a home run to give his team their first lead of the game. Byrd was lifted in the bottom of the ninth for reliever Bobo Newsom. The forty-five year old veteran was anything but sharp, walking pinch hitter Joe Ginsberg and giving up a double to Bud Souchock. With runners on second and third and no outs, Fred Hatfield hit a grounder to Pete Suder at third who overthrew the first baseman, allowing the tying run to score. Newsom then served up a deep fly ball to right that was caught but deep enough for Souchock, the winning run, to score.

Byrd pitched well in the loss, tossing eight innings of six-hit, two-run ball. Dave Philley and Eddie Robinson each finished with three hits each for Philly. Joe Astroth continued his torrid start, collecting two hits and raising his average to .525 on the year. Detroit's Jerry Priddy rapped out two singles to raise his season average to .423 in limited duty.

KRYHOSKI BLAST BURIES SENATORS

Dick KryhoskiThe Washington Senators appeared to have an extra-inning win all sewn up, but Dick Kryhoski and the St. Louis Browns had other plans, coming back from a two run deficit in the bottom of the tenth to grab their eighth win of the year. The loss dropped the Sens below .500 and prevented Bob Porterfield from getting his second win of the year.

Porterfield and Dick Littleton both pitched well early in the game, each tossing shutouts through the first four innings. St. Louis broke through in the fifth when Bobby Young singled in Kryhoski and a Littlefield sacrifice scored Clint Courtney. Washington roared back in the fifth thanks to a three-run blast by Jackie Jensen, his first of the year. The Browns answered in the bottom of the inning when Don Lenhardt led off with a solo home run to tie the game. Porterfield pitched well over the next three, blanking the Browns while St. Louis relievers Mike Blyzka and Satchel Paige matched the scoreless effort through the ninth.

In the tenth inning, with Paige still on the mound,  Pete Runnels tripled in Eddie Yost and would score himself on a single by Mickey Vernon. With a two run lead, Sonny Dixon entered the game to nail down the win. With two outs and a man on second, Dixon surrendered a run scoring single to Bob Elliot and a walk to Vic Wertz. With the winning run on second, batter Dick Kryhoski sat on the Dixon offering and deposited it deep over the right field wall for a walk-off home run.
