In addition to the three pitch ers shortstop Phil Rizzuto Catcher Yogi Berra and Outfield ers Gene Woodling and Hank Bauer were the Only players who made significant contributions to each of the five Flag win ners. This team differed from the Yankee teams of the Weiss said. It was a team which kept winning while in the proc Ess of being changed from an old Ball club to a Young one. The farm system accomplished this by sending up fresh new Talent each season. Our aging players won the 1947 Pennant and lost the 1948 he continued. It became Clear to us at the end of the 1948 season that our old play ers could not continue to win and we then determined to place Complete Confidence in our Young standings american league clubs w l pet.

Redlegs 4, giants 3 by Carl Lundqvist up sports writer new said the Pennant races were Over Don t try to Tell that to the indians White sox or red sox. Or the braves cardinals or Phillies. What they do from now on May not be very exciting but they All have a Chance for Sec Ond place and that Means a lot bigger chunk of the world series loot for each player than if they finish fourth. Actually there still Are 11 places to be decided in the final standings. Besides the dodgers and Yankees the Only teams have clinched their spots from teams lower to the standings Are the Phillies who Are sure of at least fourth place and the cubs who have clinched seventh from the pirates in the National and Washington which is mathematically beyond reach of the fast closing tigers in fifth place in the american. The Way the cubs have been travelling of late they could overtake sixth place Cincinnati and have an outside Chance of Landing in fifth place ahead of the giants. Besides the three Way stretch struggle for second in the american the last place i Browns could vacate their lowly j premises and move ahead of the j athletics Ani they still mathematically Are within reach of the sixth place tigers. Fifth place Washington sure of that spot also might overtake bos ton although the third place White sox Are out of washing ton s Range officially. The hottest Battle still re Mains Between the indians and White sox for second place. Cleveland stayed a game ahead of Chicago tuesday by beating the Yankees 1-0, As Bob Lemon won his 20th game with a seven hitter against Rookie lefty Steve Kraly. It was the fifth year in the last six he had hit the 20-game Mark. The White sox improved their position Over the fourth place red sox by Topping them 6-0 on Bob Keegan s three hitter. That left Boston 5vz games behind with Only eight to play so chances for the red sox Are pretty slim. The Phillies moved to within half a game of the third place cardinals by edging Chicago 4-2 and cutting the cub win Ning Streak off at 10 games. Robin Roberts not Only won his 22nd game but hit his first Home run of the year. Hank Sauer and Ralph Kiner tagged Roberts for homers. Duke Snider s two run Homer gave Brooklyn a 4-3 Triumph Over the cardinals in the ninth inning at St. Louis after Stan Musial had put St. Louis ahead with a Homer in the eighth. Gus Bell delivered a two run single for the key hit in a four run rally As Cincinnati topped new York 4-3, and moved with in two games of the skidding fifth place giants. Lefty Fred Baczewski pitched an eight hit Ter for his 10th win. The Pittsburgh pirates rallied for three runs in the eighth in Ning to beat Milwaukee 7-5, and hand 14-game Winner Lew Burdette his nth loss. Homers by Frank Thomas and Preston Ward led the pirates.
