Greenberg's Single
Wins Thriller in 11 th
DETROIT, April 27-(/P)-Coming
from behind to tie the score on Eddie
Mayo's sharp double with two out in
the ninth, the Detroit Tigers went on
today to down the Cjeveland Indians
5 to 4 in 11 innings on Hank Green-
berg's single with the bases loaded.
Shortstop Lou Boudreau's throw-
ing error helped load the bases and
kept the game alive for Greenberg's
payoff liner downthe left field line.
Two were out when Hank broke up
the game after Paul Richards' single,
pitcher GeorgesCaster's sacrifice, an
intentional pass to Mayo and Bou-
dreau's low throw on Barney McCos-
ky's bouncer loaded the bases.
Came from Behind Twice
A big Saturday crowd of 33,425
watched the Tigers come from behind
twice to earn the victory at the ex-
pense of relief pitcher Don Black,
who took over for Steve Grornek in
the ninth. Caster, who relieved Paul
(Dizzy) Trout in the 10th, was the
Les Fleming, Cleveland first base-
man, and McCosky of the Tigers each
hit a two-run homer. Fleming's
homer, his first of the season, came
in the third and put the Tribe out
front 2-1 after Detroit had scored
once in the second on passes to Dick
Wakefield and Roy Cullenbine and a
timely single by Pinky Higgins.
McCosky's fifth inning homer, fol-
lowing Mayo's double, put the Tigers
ahead 3-2 but the Indians bunched
three straight hits with a walk for
two more off Trout in the sixth.
Cramer Comes Through
Cleveland was leading 4-3 when
acting manager Frank Shellenback,
serving in the continued absence of
Steve O'Neill, threw in three pinch-
hitters in a desperate effort to tie the
Doc Cramer batted for Birdie Teb-
betts and singled sharply to center.
Pat Mullin, hitting for Trout, popped.
a bunt into Gromek's hands and
Cramer held first.

New York on Top
WASHINGTON, April 27 - 0P) --
Spud Chandler spun a three-hitter
today in pitching the New York
Yankees to a 9-0 victory over the
Washington Senators before 18,335
paying customers.
The victory, Chandler's third of the
season, and his secondvia the shut-
out route, enabled the Yankees to
break their first place tie with the
Boston Red Sox and left the Bronx
Bombers perched all by themselves
on the top rung.
The Bombers banged out an even
dozen hits, including a home run by
Joe Gordon and triples by Tommy
Henrich and Charley Keller. Keller
had a perfect day, with three hits
and two walks. Gordon, who also got
three hits, batted in three runs.

again this spring, combined his hit-
ting with the shutout pitching of
Sam Zoldak today as the Browns de-
feated the Chicago White Sox, 2-0
before 4,533 fans in Comiskey Park.
Zoldak, making his first start for
St. Louis, stopped Chicago with three
hits. The Brownie pitcher, who won
three games and lost two in relief
roles last year, never was in serious
Stephens put St. Louis in front in
the fourth inning when he smashed

sweep of the four relay
which they were entered,
one indiviaual event.

But for a bad pass of the baton in
the trials for the 880-yard relay this
morning, Illinois might have become
the third team in the 52 year history
of the meet to win four relay events.
The Illini had taken the 440 and the
sprint medley yesterday and made
the best time in the half mile trials.
(McKenley Fumbles Pass)
At the start of the anchor leg, how-
ever, Herb McKenley fumbled the
pass from Jack Pierce and didn't re-
ceive the baton until lie was outside
the passing zone. As a result, the Ill-
inois team was disqualified and Navy
went on to win the final.
McKenley more than atoned for
that slip when he ran a great 46.9
quarter as anchor man on the mile
relay team to turn what had been a
close race into a rout. By virtue of
that leg, Illinois won its third title
by some 15 yards over Navy, with
Michigan third.
