The victory, the most lopsided in Browns history, goes to pitcher Elam Vangilder. St. Louis totals 20 hits with Ken Williams hitting a homer in his 5th straight game, his 37th of the year. George Sisler has three hits to keep his hitting streak alive, as the Browns keep pace with New York, winners in 10 innings against Washington.

The St. Louis outfielder will hit 94 three-baggers during his 11-year career.
