Tigers Beaten
By Late Rally
Three Runs In Ninth Gain
Victory For Boston
DETROIT, June 26.-(A)-Boston's
Red Sox cut the Detroit Tigers down,
3 to 1 today, a three-run rally in the
ninth inning breaking up a tight
pitching duel between Rookie John
Gorsica of Detroit and young Jim
Bagby of Boston.
For eight innings Gorsica limited
the Sox to three scattered hits and
allowed only five men to reach first
base. His teammates were unable
to touch Bagby in the pinches un-
til the seventh when Charley Gehrin-
ger singled, reached second as Lou
Finney fumbled the ball, and scored
a moment later on Hank Green-
berg's single.
Gorsica was unable to hold the
lead. In the ninth, Finney, who
smacked twa doubles and a single
to continue his batting streak, led
off with a double. Jimmie Foxx got
a scratch.single off Gorsica's glove,
and Finney came home with the
tying run when Jim Tabor singled.
Bobby Doerr forced Foxx at third,
then Manager Joe Cronin rapped a
sharp grounder that sizzled past Bar-
tell and scored Tabor. Catcher
Johnny Peacock was given an in-
tentional pass to fill the bases, and
Alton Benton replaced Gorsica on
the mound. Benton fanned pitcher
Herb Hash but the third strike got
away from Birdie Tebbetts and Doerr
With two out in the Detroit ninth,
Gehringer and Greenberg walked',
but Rudy York lifted a fly to Cronin
to end the game.

Cleaning Out the Ice Box-14 Bit..
THOUGHT of the day-Barney
McCosky, the Detroit sophomore,
in centerfield for the American
League All-Stars instead of Joe Di-
Maggio, the New York hero from the
Italian colony of California's San
Francisco . . . The Motor City slug-
ger's .360 average at the plate is
as burning to the eye as lemon juice
is in it . . . While DiMag is suffering
from an acute attack of batting
anemia . . . The figures opposite his
name read less than .300, the first
time the nimble Knickebocker num-
ber has been under the security sta-
tion . . The Tigah poobahs had
made reservations for a trip down
for McCosky last spring . . . Then
he began to hit. . . And hasn't
stopped yet . . . The ticket to the
minors was cancelled .
Our conspicuous by their si-,
lence note-the Joe Gordon
rooters who think he's the
greatest second baseman in the
game . . . We think Cleveland's
Ray Mack will keep the "Flash"
in the shadows when Joe Cronin
picks his All-Star game second
baseman ... Mack's real name
is Mickovsky . . .. He played see- .
ond base for Case University
right in Cleveland . . . Cleve-
land's second base combination,
Lou Boudreau and Mack, is one
of the pleasantest thoughts in
baseball. Both can hit and field

with extraordinary brilliance . .
. . And the best thought of all
is that both are just starting
out ... They should play togeth-
er for a decade . . . In fact we
think the entire Cleveland in-
field is without peer . .. Keltner,
Boudreau, Mack and Trosky,
reading from left to right, anti
nice reading, too. No, we're not
from Cleveland, but we do like
the town ...
The "Well That's Settled Column"
features Yankee Babe Dahlgren . .
He's now regarded as the greatestI
fielding first baseman in baseball,
maybe of all time . . . And, imagine,
everybody agrees . . . Yours truly,
just old enough to vote for
for President (you tell me) hasn't
been watching ball players for very
long, but we've seen the Babe a few
times . . . Our vote, not for President,
is his . . . We remember one play he
made in a recent Yankee-Tiger game
in Detroit. Detroit had a man on
third and another Detroiter hit a
torrid line drive along the first base
line . . . Dahlgren moved in, scooped
the ball, tapped a toe on the sack
and had the pill in Bill Dickey's mitt
at home three yards ahead of the
man who left third at the crack of
the bat . . . The throw was perfect .
We were close enough to observe
the nonchalance of Dahlgren's ex-
pression and the relaxation of his
play . . . It was a graceful perform-
ance, a difficult play beautifully ex-
ecuted . . . One that we'll remember.
Word comes from the Coast
(West) that our Michigan swim-
mers are very much in the swim
. . . In a newspaper sponsored
meet in.Los Angeles Tuesday Gus
Sharemet, definitely one of the
game's greats, won a 100-meter
swim in 0:58.2 . . . The time is
on the sensational side . . . One
of the men in Gus' wake or back-
wash was Paul Wolf, the Coast's
own favorite son . . . Sharemet
rates as our choice to win the
AAU 100-meter crown-if he
beats Chicago's Otto Jaretz . . .
Which is playing safe, we admit,
but Jaretz beat Sharemet in-
doors, and is on the bright side
... The race should be aigreat
one . . . Jim Skinner, the Wol-
verine sensation who is famous
now, although he's never swum
varsity, won a special 200-meter
breast-stroke race in the same
meet, beating a classy field in
classy time . . . Both Sharemet
and Skinner rate as top men of
swimming's new generation . . .
The Browns of St. Louis went back
to fifth place yesterday, but before,
that they had scored 29 runs in
three games .. . May we send some
feathers for the cap of Manager Fred
Haney . . . The Browns are hustling,
and for our dough, still two cents,
a hustling athlete or team is the
best, win, lose or draw .. .

one up with two holes to go, Emery
clinched the match by halving the
seventeenth. He then added the
last hole.
Emery Meets Princeton Ace
Emery faces a tough customer in
his second round match today as he
meets Princeton's Peter Page, presi-
dent-elect of the National Collegiate
Golfers' Association.
Both Bill Black and John Leidy got
running starts on their opponents.
but they couldn't maintain the pace
long enough to gain victories.
Leidy should have been beaten be-
fore his match started as he had the
misfortune to draw Johnny Burke of
Georgetown, the 1938 champion and
this year's medalist. The Michigan
golfer, however, won three of the first
five holes and was two up at the turn
as he shot a 39. Burke became hot-
ter than a firecracker at the half-
way mark, and won the first six
holes of the back nine to clinch the
match, 4 and 3.
Black Shoots' An 84
Black, a senior, was in bad shape
all day as he carded a 14 over par 84.
Earl Stewart of Louisiana State
whipped him 2 up.
Michigan State's dark horse con-
tender, Warren Tansey, who was only
three strokes behind the medalist, fell
before the brilliant shot-making of
Yale's veteran Ed Meister, who rolled
up a 4 and 3 win. Stan Kowal of
Michigan State stayed in the running
with a 1 up victory over J. V. Scott
of Yale. Kowal finished with a
rush to beat his Eli adversary. He
squared the match on the 17th green
and clinched it with a par four on
the eighteenth. Kowal meets Bill
Hall of Iowa State, one of last year's
quarter-finalists, today.

Lou "The Flying" Finney hit De-
troit Tiger pitching for two doubles
and a single in four attempts yes-
terday to boost his batting average
seven points to the commanding
mark of .371.
The Red Sox player's mark is the
best in baseball today and puts him
well ahead of Parney McCoskey,
the Detroit centerfielder, whose one
for four yesterday left him in third
place in baseball's Big Six with a
.361 average.
Rip Radcliff, another outfielder,
the Browns' star, is in second place
at .365. Harry "The Horse" Danning,
New York Giant catcher, is in fourth
place a point behind McCosky, while
the Dodgers'. Dixie Walker is fifth.
