'to an 8 to 4 victory over the World
Champions for his eighth consecutive
win of the season.
The league's leading pitcher hard-

innings with five scattered singles,
but in the eighth he tossed "fat" ones
that Lou Gehrig and Bill Dickey lifr-
ed into the right field stands, and in
the ninth Frank Crosetti crashed a
homer into the left field stands with
Bill Knickerbocker on base.
Hank Greenberg, first up for De-
troit in the ninth, smashed one of
Bump Hadley's pitches deep into thae
left field seats for his 13th home run

The Bengals owed their victory,
successfully opening an invasion of

drove a total of seven runs across the
plate in the fourth and fifth innings.
