Mack's motley collection of ball play-

American League today and the Ben-
gals thudded into the cellar under a
6 to 5 trimming.
Working on an extra-base hit
scheme good for three home runs, a
triple and two doubles, the Philadel-
phia Athletics humiliated the Tigers
with a seventh straight licking-sec-
ond in a row in the current series.
Philadelphia's victory, ultimately
achieved on a ninth inning homer by
rookie third baseman Bill Nagel, per-
mitted the A's to exchange places in

fortune to one of the worst for any

Until Mack's gunners began find-
