Detroit Blanks
Cincinnati, 2-0;
York Homers
LAKELAND, Fla., March 20.-(P)--
Rudy York hit the first home run
that a Tiger has registered against
major-league opposition this spring
as Detroit scored a 2-0 shutout over
the Cincinnati Reds today.
York's homer, which cleared the
397-foot mark, came off Joe Beggs
with the bases empty in the sixth
inning. Al Benton and Hal White
did more than commendable jobs on
the mound for the Bengals as they
allowed the Reds only four hits, all
of which were off Benton in the firstj
five innings.
White's superlative performancej
added to his growing prestige and the
young righthander unquestionably
will be one of the hurlers retained by
the Tigers after the squad is cut.
Despite York's homer today, the
record shows that Detroit's batters
still aren't up with the pitchers. The
Tigers have managed to score only
18 runs in eight games, leaving the
pitchers with the alternative of hurl-
ing near shutout ball or losing.
The victory was the Tigers' first in
three games with the Reds.
The Cleveland Indians play the
Tigers for the first time at Lakeland
tomorrow, with Harold Newhouserj
and Hal Manders named to do the
pitching for Detroit.

the event. Considering his inexperi-

nation's top-flight field, Ufer did
very well.
Michigan's two-mile quartet failed
to defend its Relays crown in the
night's next-to-last event, but it took
a new meet mark to beat the Wol-
verines in a thrilling race. Johnny
Kautz led off for the Maize and Blue,
handing John Roxborough a 10-yard
deficit behind Campbell Kane of In-
diana and Bob Dunn of Illinois. Roxie

20.-- (1') Succeeding where they fail-
ed in the 1941 World Series, the
Brooklyn Dodgers crushed the New
York Yankees, 12-4, today in the first
meeting of the major league cham-
pions since the October classic.
The Dodgers teed off on Johnny
Lindell, Rugger Ardizoia and Johnny
Murphy for 19 hits, including a home
run and three doubles, for a total
of 25 bases.
Johnny Allen and Newt Kimball
limited the World Champions to
eight blows, but the Dodgers had to
come from behind after Phil Riz-
zuto's single and Joe DiMaggio's trip-
le in the first inning and a second in-
ning homer by Joe Gordon kept the
Yanks in front for two frames.
Arky Vaughan led the Dodger at-
tack with four hits, driving in four
runs. Johnny Rizzo slashed a homer
inside the park and two singles. Pee
Wee Reese hit a double and two sin-
gles. Every Dodger except Allen
notched at least one safety.

Michigan's baseball team may be
lacking standout pitching material
right now, but it's a good bet that be-
fore the season is very far gone the
Wolverines will have a better than
average mound crew.
There are two reasons that make
this a good bet. And their names are
Ray Fisher and George Harms.
Through the efforts of these two
men, Michigan's hurlers will develop
Fisher Was In Majors
Coach Ray Fisher knows more
about pitching than anybody else in
the Big Ten as he has spent most
of his life tossing the o1' horsehide
around. After pitching major league
baseball for several years, he took up
coaching and has turned out some of
the best college hurlers in his past
21 years as Michigan's coach.
Pitching is supposed to be 75 per
cent of a team's defensive power and
if that is true, Michigan has exactly
3712 per cent of its defense sewed up.
Captain George Harms is going to
take care of that department this
year, just like he did last year.

much to their diminutive backstop.
