A MIGHTY TRIO of pitchers: Jim Wilson (left), Billy Pierce (center), Dick Donovan (right) of the first-place Chicago White Sox. Maestro Pierce already has 10 wins and a phenomenal 1.80 ERA, having conceded just one run in 47 innings. Wilson has won six games, including three shutouts, while Donovan is 5-1. Chicago fans could well chant, "Wilson, Donovan and Billy Pierce make the White Sox mighty fierce."
