Art Houtteman staved off a
ninth inning Washington rally to
give the Detroit Tigers a narrow
8-7 victory over the Senators in a
Grapefruit League exhibition
baseball game yesterday.
A home run hit by catcher Al
Evans off Stubby Overmire, sec-
ond Tiger moundsman, in the
final frame brought in three runs
which left the Nats a single run
short of a tie. Houtteman was
rushed to Overmire's rescue and
put out the fire.
Yanks Throttled
Veteran St. Louis Card chuck-
ers Al Brazle and Red Munger
allowed the potent New York
Yanks' bats just two hits while
St. Louis picked up three runs on
nine hits off the offerings of
"Spec" Shea and Randy Gumpert,
to win, 3-0.
Another shutout, by the Phila-
delphia Athletics, came at the ex-
pense of the Boston Braves.
Rookies Lou Brissie and Ray Cole-
man stopped the National League
contenders cold on seven bingles.
Suder and Valo each garnered
three hits in the Athletics' attack.

Vollmer drove in four runs with
two circuit clouts to aid in the
defeat of the Boston Red Sox, 11-
McCarthy's men helped the
Rhinelanders along by committing
five miscues. The Red Sox were
cut down to five blows, off the
slants of Johnny Vandermeer and
Harry Gumbert but two of the
blows were homers by Sam Mele,
Boston outfielder, and first sacker,
Jake Jones.
Pirates Downed
Oakland's Oaks throttled the
Pittsburgh Pirates in another
spring warmup session yesterday
by a 4-1 count. Pacific Coast
hurler Tom Hafey allowed the
Bucs two hits duringahis seven
inning route.
Gerald Priddy, new St. Louis

runs across the plate with a home
run and double to single-handedly

Home runs also figured in
Cleveland's 4-3 win over the Chi-
cago Cubs. Successive round-
