Pearson And Gordon Lead Yanks To Third Straight W


Five-Hit Game
Sinks Chicago
Series Hopes
Ruppert Rifles Blaze Forth
After Being Suppressed
For First Four Innings
Oct. 8.-(P)-Gabby Hartnett's once
glorious Chicago Cubs, cut down by
Monte Pearson's five-hit pitching and
a home run attack that lent a Roman
holiday atmosphere to the whole pro-
ceedings, fell for the third straight
time today as the hilarious New York
Yankees neared their goal as the first
ball club in history to win three suc-
cessive World Series titles.
Balked and held hitless for 4 2-3
innings by Clay Bryant, the big moun-
taineer pitching man from Lynch-
burg, Va., the World's Champions,
sparked this time by their sensational
freshman hero, Joe Gordon, wiped
out a 1-0 deficit with seven timely
blows, two of them homers, to race
off with victory, 5-2.
Monte Fans Nine
As in the first two Yankee routs
at Chicago, the world's conquerors
played like champions. Pearson, after
a shaky start, gave them their best
pitching of the series with nine strik-
outs, four short of the recrd. The
team displayed superb defense in the
pinches though it did commit two
errors, and the batting attack found
itself Just in time to turn the game
from a thriller into another rather
pathetic Cub rout witnessed by a dis-
appointing crowd of 55,236.
From the very start of the contest,
which drew a cash gate of $106,721.58,
far short of the record that was ex-
pected, one could feel the tension. As
Bryant fooled the heavy swinging
enemy inning after inning and even
was presented with a one run lead
through a flare-up that almost in-
capacitated Umpire Charley Moran in
the 5th inning, the suspicion always
was there that the Yanks would bust
loose. And they did break loose in
the 5th and 6th innings.
Gordon Connects
Bryant, steaming along with a no-
hitter had two men out and two
strikes on Gordon when a slow ball he
had been trying to get over all af-
ternoon finally got him in trouble.
Gordon, timing himself perfectly,
caught the slow pitch and leisurely,
though firmly, banged it into the lowv-
er left field box seats to tie the score.
Then another run came home to put
the champs ahead to stay. Pearson
singled, Crosetti walked and Red Rolfe
lined a single to center to score the
The Yanks weren't long in settling
the game and again it was Gordon,
atoning for an error that had set up
the first Cub run, who provided the
punch. Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig
opened with singles and Selkirk
worked Bryant for a pass to jam the
sacks whereupon Gordon smashed a
hard single to left to score DiMag and
Lou. That was all for Bryant. After
his great stretch of hitless innings, he
had allowed six hits and two bases
on balls to the last 10 batsmen to face
him, starting and finishing with Gor-
don, twin hero of the day with Pear-

ARCHIE KODROS, Junior Center



Outstanding on Michigan's forward wall in yesterday's victory over Chicago, were Ralph, Fritz (right), a
sophomore guard from New Kensington, Pa., Archie Kodros (center), junior center from Alton, Illinois, and
Elmer Gedeon (left), senior end from Cleveland, Ohio.
Fritz, one of the well known Kiski boys, played a fine defensive game, and gave evidence that he will chal-
lenge veterans Ralph Heikkinen and Fred Olds for starting honors at the left guard post, during the remainder
of the season. Kodros played his usual steady game backing up the line, and more firmly established himself as
All-Conference timber. Gedeon, who missed the Michigan State game because of a leg injury, proved that he is
back in shape by his good showing at a flank post. The lanky all-around athlete. is called by Athletic Director
Fielding H. Yost, the fastest end in the country.
Upon the shoulders of these three linemen rests a good deal of Michigan's hopes innex t week's encounter
with Minnesota.
