Fivj (American League hurlers are heading for that goal right now with a few others as outside possibilities Jo crash the select circle. ;! Vic Raschi, husky right hander who appears to be leading the Yankees to a surprise pennant, is heading the pitching parade in both leagues. Of his first 15 deci sions he] had 13 victories by July 4. His two defeats were at the hands of the Tigers, a club he failed to beat during the first half. The only other AL right hinder, off to a real good season is Virgil (Fire) Trucks of Detroit The three othei's with good changes to reach 20j wins are all Southpaws,] Alex Kellner of the Athletics, Hal NewhousCr of the! Tigers and Mel Parnell of the Red Sox. Outside possibilities include such regular starting hurlers as Lou Brissjc of the A’s, Bob Lemon ol the Indians and Allie Reynolds ol the Yankees. Reynolds, of course, is what you might call half left hander since most of his games .ire finished by the game’s No. 1 southpaw relief pitcher, Joe , Page.

The 24-year-old six-footer is in line for the “rookie of the year” award in the American League On July 3 when he beat the Boston Red Sox, 8-3, on six hits hip com pleted the cycle of beating every team in the league. It wa#t hia sixth straight win and, at the time] his 11th win in his last 12 deci-j siops. 1 j Kellner’s, record is all the mord remarkable when you consider! that his first starting effort cami as late as May 1 when he bca the Senators.
