Joost, Kellner Shine
As A's Finish Sweep
Of Red Sox Series
By Joe Reichler
Ai>oc(ot«d Pr#»» Sports Writor
Philadelphia Athletic fans today
were boosting Eddie Joost for the
most valuable player award and
Alex Kellner for rookie of the
year honors.
Joost, the 33-year-old short
stop, and Kellner, the 24-year-old
hurler, have done more than any
other Philadelphia players to keep
the Athletics within striking dis
tance of the American League
leading New York Yankees.
Joost and Kellner combined
yesterday to lead the A’s to an
8-3 victory over Boston and a
sweep of the three-game series.
The victory, coupled with Wash
ington’s 2-1 triumph qver New
York, cut the Yankees’s margin
over the A’s to 4% games.
The bespectacled inflelder, en
joying his greatest of 11 seasons
in the majors, slammed his 18th
home run of the year off loser
Joe Dobson. The blow came with
two on In the sixth Inning and
broke a 2-2 tie.
It also tied his total 1948 out
put at 55, despite his leadoff posi
tion. He is batting at .307, the
highest figure he has attained In
16 years in organized baseball.
Kellner Hurls Six-Hitter.
Kellner, who only last year
pitched for Savannah of the Class
A Sally League, twirled a six
hitter for his 12th victory. The
Tucson Ariz., southpaw now has
won six in a row.
Given little consideration at the
start of the season, Kellner did
not pitch his first complete game
until May 22. His dozen triumphs
give him a tie with New York’s
Vic Raschi as winner of the most
games in the big leagues.
The defeat was Boston’s sixth
in a row and Dobson’s eighth
setback against five victories.
Kellner has lost only three. The
fifth-place Red Sox trail the
fourth-place Detroit Tigers by
2 Vi games and are 10 games off
the pace.
The Indians soared past Detroit
into third place by sweeping a
double-header from the St. Louis
Browns by 4-3 scores, while the
Chicago White Sox downed the
Tigers, 8-4.
A bases-loaded single by Catcher
Jim Hegan in the 10th inning
won the second game for the In
dians, after they had scored two
in the bottom of the ninth to
force it into extra innings. Les
Moss’ three-run homer accounted
for all the Browns’ runs.
Paige Has Big Day.
Satchell Paige saved the first
game, halting a ninth-inning
rally and received credit for the
second, pitching one hitless inning
of relief. Manager Lou Boudreau’s
two-run double high lighted a
three-run fifth to win the opener
for Early Wynn.
Veteran shortstop Luke Appling
got four hits in four times at
bat an drove in three runs to
lead the White Sox to an 8-4
victory in the rubber contest of
a three-game set with the Tigers.
Only 14,830 fans—the smallest
Sunday crowd in the history of
Briggs Stadium—saw the game.
The St. Louis Cardinals once
again climbed to within one game
of first place in the National
League, knocking off the Cincin
nati Reds, 8-1, while the front
running Brooklyn Dodgers were
absorbing a merciless 16-0 drub
bing from the New York Giants.
Philadelphia’s Phillies took un
disputed possession of third place,
3 Vi games off the pace, shutting
out the Boston Braves, 7-0. Ralph
Kiner’s 21st home run sparked
the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 7-3
triumph over the last-place Chi
cago Cubs.
Cards’ Battery Stars.
Batterymates Gerry Staley and
Joe Garaglola teamed to give the
Cards their victory over the Reds.
Staley spaced eight hits for his
sixth win and Catcher Garagiola
cracked a home run and scored
three runs.
A crowd of 36,014 saw the
Giants belabor four Brooklyn
pitchers for 20 hits, including a
grand-slam homer by Pitcher
Monte Kennedy. Every man in the
Giants’ lineup hit safely and
scored at least one run.
Young Robin Roberts spun the
Phily shutout over Boston, giving
up five hits with none of the
Braves going beyond second base.
Kiner’s homer touched off a four
run Pittsburgh uprising against
the Cubs’ Warren Hacker in the
fourth and snapped a 1-1 tie.

Crack Calumet Trio
Heads Field Today
In Stars and Stripes
•y th» Atiociatad Pr*u
CHICAGO, July 4.—Calumet
Farm’s triple threat—Coaltown,
Armed and Free America—topped
a field of eight classy thorough
breds today for the 21st running
of the $50,000-added Stars and
Stripes Handicap at Arlington
Opposing the Warren Wright
entry are Dixlana’s speedy pair,
Shy Guy and Star Reward; King
Ranch’s Better Self; Oscar J.
Breault’s Brolite, and Woolford
Farm’s Delegate.
Ben and Jimmy Jones of the
Calumet board of strategy were
were expected to wait until a late
hour before deciding whether all
three of their entries will run in
the rich 1%-mile fixture.
Free America has been con
sidered a doubtful starter, but he
showed about as well as the
esteemed Coaltown when Star Re
ward beat them both in the recent
Equipoise Mile at Arlington. It
was Coal town's first setback in
nine races this season. He
finished second in the Equipoise
while Free America was fifth, but
only a neck out of third.
Free America is assigned 113
pounds for today feature while
Coaltown totes 130, two less than
he did in the Equipoise. Star
Reward takes up 5 more than
the 116 he packed in his three -
length win over Coaltown.
The status of Armed, Calumet’s
former champion and winner of
the 1947 Stars and Stripes, is in
teresting. The 8-year-old gelding
is reaching the retirement age
but he recently sped to an easy
win over a field of sprinters to
display his old form. He will
carry only 110 pounds today, 20
under his load in 1947.
