NEW YORK fry - The Cleveland
Indians and the New York Giantsh

CLEVELAND (A - The cham-
pion Cleveland Indians won their
110th victory of the season yester-
day to tie the American League
record set in 1927 by the New York
Yankees.
It was a 3-1 decision over the
third-place Chicago White Sox with
young lefthander Don Mossi pitch-
ing five-hit ball and outfielder Al
Smith contributing a double and a
triple to the scoring.
* * *
NEW YORK (R) - Aided by a
triple play in the sixth inning,
lefty Tommy Byrne blanked Wash-
ington on five hits yesterday for
a 3-0 New York victory. It was the
veteran southpaw's third victory
in four decisions since he rejoined
the Yankees.

BROOKLYN () - Karl Spooner,
23-year-old Brooklyn southpaw up
from Fort Worth in the Texas
League, set a record for a rookie
pitcher making his first start in
the major leagues yesterday when
he struck out 15 New York Giants
and shut out the new National
League champions 3-0.
BALTIMORE fR)-Detroit scored
four runs in the seventh inning yes-
terday to defeat Baltimore 4-1.
Steve Gromek yielded four hits to
the Orioles, one a bases-empty
homer by Cal Abrams.
* * *
PHILADELPHIA (A - With left-
hander Curt Simmons batting in
two runs on a pair of singles and
Del Ennis hitting a two-run homer
- his 25th - the Philadelphia
Phillies swamped the Pittsburgh
Pirates 12-1 in the first game of a
twi-night twin bill yesterday.
Then Robin Roberts pitched a
tight four-hitter in the nightcap
last night as the Philadelphia Phil-
lies swept both ends of a twi-night
twin bill from the Pittsburgh Pi-
rates, taking the opener 12-1 and
the second game 5-1. The lone run
off Roberts was Frank Thomas'
fourth-inning homer.

By PHIL DOUGLAS
Michigan's v a r s i t y football
squad, 38 men strong, departed at
8 a.m. today from Willow Run Air-
pcrt for Seattle, Washington, where
this Saturday afternoon it will open
the 1954 season against Washing-
ton's revengeful Huskies.
The Wolverines, who ran through
their last home practice yesterday
afternoon on Ferry Field, are
scheduled to arrive at the Seattle-
Tacoma airport at 2:35 p.m. (Pa-
cific Coast Time) and will go di-
rectly to their magnificent head-
quarters, at Gaffney's Lake Wild-
erness Resort. 19 miles out of Se-
attle.
Friday, Michigan w i11 r u n
through final drills in the Universi-
ty of Washington Stadium, nestled
in the shadow of towering Mount
Rainier.
The38 men traveling squad in-
cludes 12 sophomores, of which one
will probably start. He is Ron Kra-f
mer, towering end, who yesterday'
looked excellent in flagging down
the pin-point tosses of Duncan Mc-I
Donald, ace Wolverine passer. The
combine may well unseat Michi-
gan's famed single wing, and turn
it into a T-Formation team. This
possibility remains to be seen, how-
ever.
Baer Hurts
Pass defense was also stressed
yesterday on Ferry Field, as Tom
Hendricks, fleet tail-back, looked!
very sharp in hauling several of,
the opponents' passes. Signal drills,1
and a place kicking exercise fea-
turing the toe of new Fullback Lou
Baldacci were also held on the
wind-swept field yesterday.
Baldacci must now carry an
even heavier load at the fullback
slot, for number two fullback Fred
Baer, who was supposed to spell
Baldacci, pulled a leg muscle late
Tuesday, and will not see much
action at Seattle.
Baer was replaced by speedy
Dave Hill, who was moved over
from the left halfback position.
Hill was originally a Michigan full-
back before he departed for the
armed services in 1951.
Tony Branoff, number one right
halfback, looked as if he had sha-

ken off his knee injury, as he
snared pass after pass, and ran
very well in yesterday's drills.
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan is un-
certain over his starting line-up
at take-off time today, but he in-
dicated his starting backfield will
consist of McDonald at quarter,
Branoff and Danny Cline at the
halfs, and Baldacci at full.
Bates Out
Up front in the big Wolverine for-
ward wall, the ends will probably
be Kramer and Gerry Williams,
the tackles Art Walker and John
Morrow, Captain Ted Cachey and
G. Edgar Meads at the guards,
and John Peckham at center.
Peckham replaced Jim Bates, who
is hospitalized with pneumonia and
did not make the trip.
The complete traveling squad in-
cludes: Fred Baer, Lou Baldacci.
Terry Barr, Tony Branoff. Ted
Cachey, Dan Cline, George Corey,
Clem Corona, Jim Davies, Don!

Geyer, Jerry Goebel, Jerry Gon-

The Cleveland slugger currently

weeks. The finger apparently has

is resting up from muscular dis-

also from a foot ailment.
Thompson's .267 batting average
belies his value to the Giants. He
is a long-ball threat, as his 26 hom-
ers attest, and is a good clutch-
performer.

GRID SELECTIONS
Again this year the Michigan Daily sports staff is going to
tackle its traditional job of attempting to predict the winners of each
week's 15 top grid battles.,
In addition to the senior sports editors, five sports night editors,
and two former sports night editors, Dave Baad and Jim Dygert
will participate in the selections.
Senior sports editor 2Dave Livingston, last year's winner with
a .756 average, hopes to make it two in a row.

take over when Munn quit coach-
ing.
But Evashevski moved to Wash-
ington State, then to Iowa. Daugh-
erty stayed on and was Munn's
hand-picked successor when Biggie
became MSC athletic director.
There has been a coolness be-
tween Evashevski and Daughertyl
since that time-antemperature
that should result in a red hot
football game.
