Gaints Trounce Cards, 17-3; Noble Blasts Two Home Runs NEW YORK, N. Y, May 9 UP.— The New York Giants blasted the St. Louis Cardinals for 21 hits — including three home runs — and a 17 to 3 victory today. Big rookie Rafe Noble hit two of the homers and also got two singles, driving in five runs for the afternoon as the Giants won their third straight and their eighth game out of the last 10. Bobby Thomson also homered for the Giants and Don Richmond for the Cards. Before manager Leo Durocher benched his regulars and the second stringers kept up the carnage, they came through with 13 runs in the first three innings, seven in a weird second frame. The defeat was the second in a row the Giants handed the Cards— and St. Louis manager Marty Marion felt he was helpless. The team has nine men suffering from influenza. The score by innings: R H E Cardinals 000 011 001 — 3 5 2 Giants 175 021 Olx— 17 21 2 Lanier, Wilks 2, Dusak 3, Brazle 6 and Garagiola, Sarni 6 ; Maglie 3-2 and Noble. Losing pitcher, Lanier 1-1. Home runs — Richmond 1st, Noble 2nd and 3rd, Thomson 5th.
