'11' Nine Indiana-Bound



Tigers Edge White Sox;
Giants, Cards, Phills Win

By The Associated Press
Detroit retained its place among
the American League's unbeaten
teams today as they pushed across
a run in the eighth inning to nip
the Chicago White Sox, 4-3.
Rookies George Vico and Con-
nie Berry played leading roles in
the Tiger's second consecutive
victory. Vico tripled the first time
up in the third and scored on Bob
Swift's single. Berry held his fire
until the eighth when he opened
with a single, went to second on
Mayo's sacrifice and scored on
Hoot Evers' third straight single.
Starter Dizzy Trout held the
White Sox to three hits until he
weakened in the seventh when the
White Sox scored all their runs.
Stubby Overmire took over and
held the Sox to one hit in the last
two innings to gain the victory.
Coan Breaks Up Game
In the only other game played
in the American League, Gil Coan
belted a three run homer to lead
the Washington Senators to a 6-3
victory over the New York Yan-
Joe DiMaggio rapped a two-run
homer for the Yankees in the first
inning. It was Joltin' Joe's first
home run of the season.
Boston and Philadelphia were
rained out and Cleveland' and St.
Louis were not scheduled to play
In the National League the New
York Giants outlasted the Brook-
lyn Dodgers 9-5 in a three hour
travesty in which the Dodgers set
a new major league record by us-
ing 24 men.
Mize Hits First
Five homers were unloaded to
the amusement of the 21,388 spec-
tators. Big Jawn Mize obliged
with his first of the season and
Sid Gordon also hit one for the'
Giants. Arky Vaughan hit two,
one inside the park, and Carl Fu-

in the fourth inning. The injury
was not serious however.
The Philadelphia Phillies put
together two walks, a sacrifice, a
wild throw and a long fly to
score a 13-inning 4-3 victory over
the Boston Braves.
White is Loser
Schoolboy Rowe started on the
mound for the Plails and Bill
Voiselle started for Boston but
neither finished. Ernie White,
making a comeback for Boston,
hurled 5 2/3 innings and allowed
but two hits, but was charged with
the loss.
A chilled crowd of 5,555 saw the
Chicago Cubs push over five runs
in the last two innings to defeat
the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-3. Hank
Borowy received credit for the
win, but he needed help from Bob
Chipman in the ninth.

Baseball Team
R~eady for Ttro
Hoosier Tilts
Michigan's baseball team will
see the effects that the McMilan
football shake-up has left on the
Indiana nine, which meets the
rampaging Wolverines in a week-
end series, starting with a single
game tomorrow.
The Hoosiers will field ia ve-
eran outfit that looks pretty rood
on paper, but doesn't back up the
figures in actual competition. Last
week, they lost a pair to Wis-
consin by hitting in the wrong
In the second game, Indiana
belted the Badger hurler for
fourteen hits. The Hoosiers,
however, forgot to bunch thenm

With all but, four lettermen re-
turning, Indiana presents the
same infield combination that
rated as the Big Nine's best field-
ing unit last ,year. But they are
now playing ball for a new coach,
Danny Danielson.I
Danielson, a second base fix-
ture at Indiana for three years,
signed with the Brooklyn Dodg-
ers after graduating in 1942. The
,war cropped his major league
career before he really got start-
ed, and when he received his dis-
charge from the Navy, in 1946,
Danielson hooked up with Indiana
as an alumni field representative.
Since Bo MeMillan, head
football coach and athletic di-
rector, joined the Detroit Lions
staff, baseball mentor Paul Har-
rell moved up to the Athletic
Director's post. Danielson was
then app~ointed to guide the
fortunes of the Indiana dia-
mond squad.
He inherited a sound team ex-
cept for a weap pitching staff,
which is also the Wolverines' bold
faced question mark. The main-
stay of the H-oosier mound corps,
Ralph Brickner, recently signed
a contract with the Philadelphia

NY Shortstop
NEW YORK, April 21 --(4-1) -
Manager Mel Ott got tough with
Buddy Kerr today, suspending the
New York Giants' shortstop in-
definitely because Ott said he re-
fused to play.
Kerr, sidelined since hie was hit
in the head by a thrown ball in
an exhibition game at Topeka,
Kas., April 14, had been in and
out of doctors' offices for the past
week. There is some confusion
about his fitness for play.
The Giants insist that they
have assurances from specialists
in both New York and Cleveland
that his appearance in the line-
up would lead to no injurious af-
Ott said Kerr told him yester-
day the doctor advised him to
take it easy in returning to the
lineup. Ott said the same doctor
had told him (Ott) that the in-
fielder was ready to play.
Secretary Eddie Brannick of
the Giants said Kerr had been
taken to a hospital in Topeka af-
ter he had been hit in the head by
outfielder Allie Clark of the Cleve-
land Indians as he slid into third

First Victory, 11-9

EAST LANSING, Mich., April 21
--(A)---Michigan State celebrated
its first home game today by out-
slugging the visiting Wisconsin
Badgers for an 11-9 win.
It was the first victory in five
starts for the Spartans.
Wisconsin, trailing all through
the game, threatened in the ninth
but the rally was shut off after
four runs had crossed the plate.
Coach John H. Kobs, who has
been scouring his squad for pitch-
ing talent, f inally came up with a
winner in right hander Lou Bloch
of Detroit. Bloch was pulled in
the ninth after the four runs
came in, but got credit for the win.
The Spartans pushed over four
runs in the second inning, but the
Wisconsin club came back with an
equal number in the third. MSC
picked up another run in the
fourth and two more in the fifth
and then put the game on ice with
the four -run eighth inning bar-
