Boston Streak a Dazzling Dozen After Scarborough Three-Hitter


BOSTON Apparently success is contagious. Before Friday night, Ray Scarborough had started 12 games for the Red Sox in 1951. He won two and failed to complete any. His ERA was 7.34. Friday he caught the spirit that has helped the Fenways produce the longest win streak in the major leagues this season, spinning a threehitter as the Red Sox topped the Indians, 3-1, for their 12th straight victory. It is the longest BoSox win streak since a 13-gamer in 1948. And it is precisely the scenario American League rivals feared at the winter meetings last December, when shortly after signing Lou Boudreau, Boston acquired stalwart hurlers Scarborough and Bill Wight from the White Sox. If the Red Sox cant win now, Detroit pilot Red Rolfe said, they had better give up. Scarborough (4-1; he has a win in relief) got off to a shaky start Friday. His second pitch of the game was powered over the left field wall by Bobby Avila, giving Cleveland a 1-0 lead. Three of the first 10 Indians batters had hits off the 34-year-old righthander. But Scarborough held the Indians hitless over the final 6 2/3 innings while third baseman Vern Stephens led a comeback. Stephens tripled and scored the tying run in the fourth. After Dom DiMaggio doubled and scored the tie-breaking run in the fifth, Stephens added an insurance run with a home run just inside the let field foul pole. Cleveland starter Bob Lemon (8-10) took the loss, allowing three runs in seven innings. AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere in the American League: Nellie Fox led a 15-hit attack as the visiting White Sox trimmed the Yankees 8-5, snapping a three-game losing streak and leapfrogging the New Yorkers into second place. Fox had four hits, including two doubles, and drove in a pair of runs. Five Chicago batters had multiple hits. The ChiSox needed the extra offense. Ace Billy Pierce gave up three runs in three innings before being forced to leave after a rain delay. Howie Judson (7-5) threw two scoreless innings of relief for the win. Loser Tom Morgan (6-3) surrendered six runs in 5 1/3 innings. Virgil Trucks (5-3) survived eight hits and eight walks to pitch the visiting Tigers to a 5-4 win over Philadelphia, snapping Detroits sevengame losing streak. The As Bob Hooper (8-5) took the loss. Connie Marrero fired a six-hitter as the Senators bombed the visiting Browns, 9-3. Marrero (6-7) allowed one earned run in nine innings, taking over the AL ERA lead at 2.49. Irv Noren had three RBI for the Nats.

Sauer Makes a Winner (Finally) of Cubs Pilot Cavarretta


CHICAGO During his first five games as manager of the Chicago Cubs, Phil Cavarretta may have gained an understanding of why Frankie Frisch walked away from the job. On Friday, Hank Sauer demonstrated why Cavarretta might want to keep it. With two out in the bottom of the ninth inning of a tie game, Sauer slugged an 0-1 pitch from Milo Candini over the left field bleachers and onto Waveland Avenue, giving the Cubs a 7-6 triumph and Cavarretta his first win in six games as the teams skipper. It was Sauers 24th home run, placing him second in the National League. A pair of three-run rallies gave Chicago a 6-5 lead after eight innings. But the Phillies, 10-15 since July 2, tied it in the ninth on Granny Hamners two-out, full-count RBI single. Sauer trumped those dramatics with his first game-ending home run since 1948, when as a member of the Reds he victimized Pittsburgh southpaw Vic Lombardi. Cubs reliever Monk Dubiel (2-1), who gave up the tying run in the top of the ninth, got credit for the win. Candini (7-3) took the loss. AROUND THE HORN Elsewhere in the National League: Roy Campanella swatted a three-run circuit clout and Carl Erskine snapped a streak of three uninspiring starts as the Dodgers defeated the host Cardinals, 4-2. Campanellas home run gave Brooklyn a 4-0 lead in the sixth. Erskine (7-6), who had allowed at least five runs in each of his three previous outings, held the advantage with help from reliever Clyde King. The Cards Gerry Staley (7-10) took the loss. Howie Fox spun a four-hitter for his second win (and first complete game) since May 4 as the Reds subdued the visiting Giants, 4-1. Virgil Stallcup and Bob Scheffing hit backto-back homers in the second inning to give Fox (3-11) a lead he would never relinquish. Jim Hearn (11-6) took the loss for New York. Earl Torgeson had a career-high five hits and Max Surkont scattered 11 safeties in eight innings as the Braves beat the host Pirates, 105. Torgeson, Sam Jethroe and Walker Cooper homered in support of Surkont (8-10). Ralph Kiner hit his 20th four-bagger for the Bucs.

Red Sox Recall Dropo From San Diego Farm


BOSTON (AP) The recall of Walt Dropo, gigantic first baseman from the San Diego Pacific Coast League club, was announced Friday night by the Boston Red Sox. One of the Red Soxs outstanding power hitters of last season, Dropo was sent out after falling into a 1-for-26 slump in June. Room for Dropo on the Red Sox roster became available when outfielder Karl Olson, who expects an immediate call from the U.S. Army, requested voluntary retirement. Will Harridge, president of the American League, was reported recovering Friday from major surgery in St. Lukes Hospital. Harridge, 65, expects to return to his home in suburban Wilmette in about 10 days, but probably will not return to his office until late in August. Harridge has been president of the American League since 1931. Al Gettel, 33-year-old righthanded relief pitcher, was sold by the New York Giants to Oakland of the Pacific Coast League on Friday. Two Gun Gettel had a 1-1 record and 4.45 ERA in 38 games with the Giants this season. Hell return to an Oakland club for which he was 23-7 in 1950.

Replacing Chandler Suddenly Tough Task


NEW YORK (INS) There is every indication that baseball will be without a commissioner for an indefinite time. There is still a chance that the committee set up to pick a successor to Happy Chandler will name somebody by Aug. 1. There is a better chance this will be put off for a while. There seems to be widespread disagreement among the club owners as to what exactly constitutes a desirable candidate for the job among the available talent. Some of the talent reportedly has taken a speedy powder on the job after pondering the baseball demise of Chandler, who was unceremoniously and perhaps unjustifiably kicked out. If the action was not merely whimsical, unsportsmanlike, undignified and utterly unkind, the point has never been made clear by the club owners. It may be that they got rid of not only an incumbent but also any one of a half dozen possible successors in one fell slice. Some gentlemen simply do not wish a job with a hairtrigger guillotine attached. There are candidates for the vacancy, but few who are suitable under the circumstances. There was, for example, a quiet meeting in New York in which the presidents of the three

local ball clubs met to discuss their choices. Nothing got decided, president Walter OMalley of the Brooklyn Dodgers said. During the All-Star game at Detroit in July 10, Del Webb of the New York Yankees, one of

four members of the so-called screening committee, announced that the owners had agreed to mail their recommendations to the committee by July 20 and to follow that up with a meeting Aug. 1 to elect the new man. But that is the last the club owners have heard from Webb.
