ASTON BY A SQUEEZE:
Sox Drop Yankees from League Lead

NEW YORK-(P)-The brawny
men of Boston finally got even
with Joe Page yesterday, storm-
ing into the American League lead
with a 7-6 triumph over the New
York Yankees on a four-run blast
against Fireman Joe in the eighth
inning.
Breaking an exact first place tie
with the Yanks, the Sox exploded
two big innings for their tenth
straight victory of a late Septem-
ber surge. It was the first time
this season the Yanks had been
out of the lead.
THE YANKS, who led Boston
by12 games the night of July 4
and had an imposing five-game

bulge on the losing side some 10
days ago, finally have been col-
lared.
Bobby Doerr's squeeze bunt to
first baseman Tommy Henrich
moved ;Johnny Pesky home with
the tie-breaking run against
Page. It was close but the ump
ruled the sliding Pesky safe.
Almost everything that could
happen did happen during the
nerve-wracking three hours and
18 minute thriller as the Yanks
recovered from a three-run Bos-

ton first inning to move out front
with four in the fourth.
ADDING TO their advantage in
the sixth and seventh, they crum-
bled in the big eighth as Page lost
his fourth straight ball game. It
was Joe's third failure within a
week.
For a time it looked as though
Lefty Page, the capable reliefer
was enroute to another of his
sparkling performances. Com-
ing in to replace Fred Sanford
in the fifth he sailed through
the sixth and seventh without
trouble.
A line drive single by Dom Di-
Maggio following a single by Bird-
ie Tebbetts and a walk to pinch-
hitter Lou Stringer, was the tell-
ing blow.

ONLY ONE RUN scored on Di-
Maggio's hit. Pesky rolled the ball
toward George Stirnweiss but the
second baseman's error, let String-
er score. Now it was 6-5.
The "Williams Shift" back-
fired when Teddy groundedbto
Stirnweiss in back of first base
but Ilenrich, diving for the
drive, was unable to field his
position. It had to go as a sin-
gle, loading the bases with none
out. Vern Stephen's fly to Gene
Woodling brought home DiMag-
gio to tie the score.
Then came Doerr's squeeze play
that resulted in the fiery contro-
versy at the plate involving catch-
er Ralph Houk, manager Casey

Stengel and the entire Yankee
club. That was the ball game.
STENGEL'S STARTER, Tommy
Byrne, left before retiring a man

day at Ferry Field.
and Williams, sandwiched around
Pesky's "fluke" single that fell
between Jerry Coleman and Hen-
rich in short right center, set the
stage for Stephen's two-run sin-
gle.
When the A's come in to open a
three-day stand today, Stengel
plans to start Vic Raschi, winner
of 19 and loser of 10. He will be'
opposed by Dick Fowler (14-10).
Joe Dobson will work for the Red
Sox at- Washington tonight.

Millin set out to Polish the Detroit
Lions' running game for opening,
the home National FootballI
League season next Monday night
against Philadelphia's Eagles in
Briggs Stadium.
"We feel that in quarterbacks
Fred Enke and Clyde LeForce, we
can match the League's best aerial
attack," McMillin said. "But we've
work to do on our running."

OPENING PRACTICE on their
new "home" field yesterday, Mc-
Millin gave indication that Cloyce
Box, recruit from West Texas
State, had the inside track on the
Lions' right halfback position.
Since the Pittsburgh exhibi-
tion game two weeks ago, Box'
running and pass-catching has
stood head and shoulders above
all candidates. He caught touch-
down passes in the last two
games, one being a 38-yard
charge during the Lions' heart-
breaking 27 to 24 defeat from
Los Angeles' Rains last Friday
night. ,
Box' arrival as the possible "find

of the year" in the Lions' will
make it possible for John Panelli,
recruit from Notre Dame, to de-
vote full time to the fullback spot.
DURING RECENT weeks, Pan-
elli alternatively has divided his
chores between the right halfback
and fullback station. With Box,
understudied by Mel Groomes and
Wally Triplett, both of whom ap-
pear coming into their own as
runners, McMillin feels confident
the Lions' running attack will be
improved.
