Dodgers Hurling Off-And-On,
Bums Smell Pennant Again
By CARL LUNDQUIST
NEW YORK, Sept. 11—UP—
Charley Dressen, who is not neces-
sarily the greatest sage since
Socrates, made the remarkable
observation Thursday that there is
nothing wrong about the Dodgers
when they get good pitching—the
only catch being that no one knows
when it will happen.
But Dressen was happy, the
pitchers were happy, (he Dodgers
were happy, and they were all pen-
nant-bound again Thursday just be-
cause sore-armed Carl Erskine and
their "aches and pains" rookie
John Rutherford camc through un-
expectedly Wednesday night to
pitch a paii- of victories over the
Cubs and put thom 4 1-2 games up
on the Giants once again.
Thursday it could be different
and the pitching could be off-the-
beam again hut chipper Cholly in-
sisted that wasn't likely to happen
since "I have three fellows rested
anil ready to go for the first time
in quite a stretch."
The fellow he chose to start
against the Cubs was Billy Loes,
who has had just two days of rest
since getting bopped by the Giants
in a full-distance outing last Mon-
day. But Dressen also chortled that
he had Preacher Roe, a winner
Sunday, and rookie Ken Lehman,
who was kayoed Monday.
Erskine Has Severe Pains
The Brooks won the opener 4 to
1 with a four-run rally in the sev-
enth in which Jackie Robinson
came out of a slump to deliver a
key hit. Hank Sauer's 36th homer
—lops for his big league career-
accounted for the only Chicago run.
In the second game, Erskine,
whose arm was so sore that on
three different occasions he had to
have the pain relieved with a
deadening agent, gained his 121 h
victory, 6 to 2.
The Giants kept the heat on by
winning a 13 inning game from
Pittsburgh, 3 to 2, on a homer by
Don Mueller, whose clutch hitting
also gave them a ninth inning vic-
tory over Brooklyn Monday. A two-
run homer by Ralph Kiner, his
33rd. kept the Bucs in front until
the Giants tied it up, scoring single
runs in the sixth and eighth.
The Yankees managed to stay a
game in front of the Indians by
lopping the Browns, 6 to 1, in the
American League behind Allie
Reynolds' five-hit pitching, while
Cleveland again defeated Philadel-
phia, 5 to 3, as Bob Lemon won
Reynolds Strikes Out 13
Reynolds made it 18 victories
when he struck out 13 batters—
high for one game in the league
this year—and pitched shutout ball
after the first inning.
The Yankees made 15 hits, tak-
ing the lead in the fifth on a run
produced by Phil Rizzuto's single,
an infield out, and Gene Wood-
ling's single. Then thev camc
strong at the finish scoring two
more in both the eighth and ninth
Joe Collins homered for the
Lemon held the A's scoreless
with three hits until the ninth and :
Ted Wilks came in to save the vic-
tory. The hot-rod Indians now have
won seven straight, equalling their
best streak of the year.
In other National League
games, the Phils retaliated against
the Cards by scoring five runs in
the eighth to give Steve Ridzik his
fourth victory, 6 to 3, while Cin-
cinnati set back Boston, 6 to 5 in
10 innings, scoring two runs in the
extra frame on Ted Kluszcwski's
double and cushioning against Jack
Dittmer's homer for the losers in
the bottom of the frame. Kluszew-
ski also homered for Cincy while
Sid Gordon and Walker Cooper
homered for Boston.
The White Sox took a firmer hold
on third place by handling Wash-
ington its fifth straight defeat, 6
to 3, as Billy Pierce gained his 14th
victory, and Detroit scored a 13-hit,
6 to 2 victory over the Red Sox in
other American League games. Bill
Wight pitched an eight-hitter
against his former Boston mates.
Allie Reynolds of the Yankees
who pitched five-hit ball and
and struck out 13—tops for any
American League game this year
—in a 6 to 1 victory over the
Browns that protected their one
game first place lead.

In Heavy Battle
By JACK CUDDY
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Sept. 11
—UP—As Jack Dempsey returned
to New York Thursday, he was
"leaning" toward heavyweight
champion Joe Walcott to defeat
Rocky Marciano in their title fight
at Philadelphia, Sept. 23.
Not that the great Dempsey
made any overt movement or any j
directly indicative statement. In-
stead, he surprisingly refrained
from picking Marciano to wrest
the crown from 38-year-old Walcott,
a job that Dempsey was expected
Moreover, the Manassa Mauler
consented to be the guest of Felix
Bocchicchio, Walcott's manager,
at a party Wednesday night that
included not only a coterie of news-
papermen, hound for Marciano's
camp at Grossinger, N. Y., but also
ex-New York Boxing Commission-
er Eddie Eagan. Eagan said he
"leaned" toward Walcott.
Manassa Jack, usually a severe
critic of the International Boxing
Club which is co-promoting the
Philadelphia fight with Herman
Taylor, consented to help boost the
million-dollar fight because of his
friendship for Al Weill, Marciano's
manager. He watched Marciano
box at the Grossingor's Country
Club Tuesday, and then came to
Atlantic City Wednesday with the
expectation he would pick Marci-
ano to win.
Because of a mix-up on flying
schedules, Dempsey and his party
arrived so late at Walcott's Badcr
field camp they missed his four
rounds sparring and saw only his
bag punching and rope-skipping.
Ancient Walcott is one of the most
impressive bag punchers and rope
performers in the world.
Dempsey stood at ringside and
his eyes "popped" as he saw the
Methusela of Maul almost ripping
the light bag off its swivel and
floating about the platform with the
skip-rope like a ballet dancer.
Dempsey said, "Jeez, how does
he do it? It's absolutely amazing."
He blinked at reporters and declar-
ed defensively, "No, I can't pick
a winner. I haven't seen Walcott
box." He took an easy "out." How-
ever, during the night his praises
of Walcott's skill and punch con-
vinced most hearers in Atlantic
City that he was leaning, almost
to the point of falling, for Walcott.
