Cardinals Defeat the Reds

CINCINNATI-Cincinnati fandom, which has waited 20 years to celebrate a baseball championship, still must wait at least another day. "Fiddler Bill" McGee, hurling one of the finest games of his career, saw to that today when he pitched the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-0 triumph over the Cincinnati Reds.

Bucky Walters, Cincinnati ace, pitched capably, but he was no match for the red-hot McGee. By winning, the Cards retained a fighting chance at the pennant if they can win the final game of the series tomorrow. They are still 2 1/2 games behind the Reds, and have only four games left to play.
