Detroit Keeps
First Position
Winning Two
Now Are Game And Half
Ahead Of Cleveland;
Indians Beat New York
DETROIT, Aug. 3.-(P)- Crack
pitching by two youngsters and the
old wallop at the bat carried the
pennant-minded Tigers to a sweep
of a doubleheader with the Boston
Red Sox today, 6 to 4 and 14 to 2,
before an exultant crowd of 38,150
Raising to a game and a half their
margin over the Cleveland Indians,
who beat the Yanks today, the Tigers
capitalized on some staunch twirling
by Freddie Hutchinson in the opener
and a gilt-edged five-hit job by
Johnny Gorsica in the nightcap.
Four Runs Off Bagby
The Tigers, after wasting earlier
chances, jumped on Jim Bagby for
four runs in the seventh to save the
first game for Hutchinson and give
him his second triumph of the season
against three defeats. The heralded
$70,000 beauty from Seattle, who was
a bust last year, allowed seven hits
in 8 2/3 innings, relief man Al Ben-
ton helping him in the ninth.
Doubles by BillyhSullivan and
Charley Gehringer and a bases-full
walk off Denny Galehouse, who re-
lieved Bagby, accounted for the four
Tiger runs. The Sox had picked off
three gift runs in the fourth on a
hit batsman, Pinky Higgin's' muff of
a bunt, Lou Finney's double, and
Bobby Doerr's scratch single off
Hutchinson's arm.
Cronin Hits Homer
Manager Joe Cronin, who got two
of the five hits off Gorsica in the
second battle, slugged him for a
homer into the left center pavilion
in the first with Dom DiMaggio on
base from Gehringer's wide throw.
That was Boston's only threat, and
Gorsica himself contributed to the
big Detroit total in the eighth when
he parked a homer in the center field
pavilion with tw6 men on. It was his
sixth victory against five losses.

Pitch Shutout
To Biologists
The University Geography Camp
shut out the University Biological
Station by a score of 3 to 0 Friday at
the Biology Field to win a three
game series and the "culinary" lov-
ing cup given annually to the group
with the best softball team.
In the first game of the series the
Geographers trounced the Biologists,
17 to 3, and were edged out in the
second, 2 to 1, in an overtime game.
The trophy the Geography team
received, which will be on display
next year in Room 9, Angell Hall, is
composed of two funnels and a pie
pan flanked by two large ladels.
Locko, caught by Black, held the
Biology squad to two hits while his
teammates belted out four safeties,
two of them by Castle. The Geogra-
phers were also helped along by
three errors, two by Brown and one
by Matteson. Johnson and Larsh
comprised the losing battery.
The geography victory is the third
in the four year history of the series
as the Biologists' only win was in

McKechnie, Paul said, talked to
the catcher for some time and after-
ward Hershberger "was in much bet-
ter spirits and sat around the lobby
with some of the players."
Hershberger was in "good spirits"
this morning, the club secretary said,
but when asked by his roommate,
Bill Baker, if he was going to the
park, replied he would go out a bit
WhenuHershberger failed to ap-
pear, Paul said they called him on
the telephone at 1:10 p.m. (EST) and
that he answered:
"I'm sick and can't play, but I'll
come out right away anyway."
Paul said that Sam Cohen, a Cin-
cinnati businessman and close friend
of Hershberger's, went to the hotel
to get him, but found the door locked.
He was admitted by a maid, Paul
said, and they found the body in
the bathroom.
Hershberger's "jugular vein was
cut," the club secretary said.
Hershberger was a native of Lemon
Cove, Calif.,
