outfit last night for its second
straight victory, 6-0. Saxton fanned
11 of the Legionnaires in five innings
with a blistering fast ball and Smith
fanned two with his "slider."
Michigan has thus played 18 in-
nings without being scored upon this
Michigan started its scoring in
the second on a base on balls to Don

singles by Bob Chappius and Bob
The Wolverines were unable to
score again until the fifth, when four
'errors and three walks gave them
five runs. Rollie Brandeau was on
first on an error by the third base-
man. He stole second and scored
when the catcher's throw to the sec-
ond baseman rolled into center field.
Strat Brown reached first safely as
the first baseman failed to touch the
bag. Muzzall, batting for Saxton, fol-
lowed with a single to right center.
When Tommy Higgins and John Mi-
kulich were walked to fill the bases,
Brown was forced in. Howie Wikel
then batted in two runs with a long'
single to center. Lund was out on
an infield fly. Chappius walked and
Vernier hit a long fly ball to deep
left which Hershy Barth caught run-
Fiing away, scoring Mikulich. Bran-
deau ended the inning by grounding
to the shortstop.
The Maize and Blue were flawless
afield. Wikel made a beautiful catch
of Jim Streiter's popup behind sec-
ond in the first. It was the Wolver-
ine right fielder, Bill Stewart, who
made the fielding plays of the game.
He made two running catches in the
seventh and last inning of the game,
one running away from the plate
and the other right off his shoe-

The Crac ker Barrel
By Mike Dann
Daily Sports Edutor
0 All-Star Games And Home Runs ...
WITH the cream of Major League pitching facing each other in the All-
Star games, it's only natural that the scores are generally low and the
hits well scattered. But for some Strange reason the American Leaguers
usually manage to collect a homer or two against the National's air-tight
hurling and take the famous classic.
This peculiar little American League habit started right off with
the All-Star game back in 1933 when the Big Bambino himself, Babe
Ruth, poled a long one out of the park. Babe was 38 at the time, his
legs were weak, he was overweight, his batting average below .200. All
of this made little difference because when the newspaper extras came
out that July day nine years ago it was the great Yankee right fielder
who received the praise.
Several years later, long-driving Jimmy Foxx gave the Americans a
well-earned 4-1 victory by socking a home run with Lou Gehrig on base.
Gehrig came back in 1938 to slap a circuit clout off the colorful Dizzy
Dean and help the newer league take their fourth win in five All-Star games.
It looked last year as if the National League would break this home run
jinx with the score 5-4 in their favor and two out in the ninth. But the
dangerous Ted Williams came up with two on base and promptly hit far
into the upper right-field stands for a titahic homer. He pranced happily
around the bases after Joe Gordon and Joe DiMaggio.
Monday it was the same old story in the 10th annual clash of the tWo
leagues. Lou Boudreau, hustling Cleveland manager, opened the contest
by knocking Mort Cooper's second pitch out of the ball park. In that same
inning with two out and Tommy Henrich on second Big Chief Rudy York
drove a wide pitch into the lower right-field deck for two more runs to
give the American League its margin of victory.
All in all, the game was a very light-hitting affair, with the pitching
for both sides commendable. The only difference was that the Ameri-
can League sneaked in their usual share of homers while the Nationals
went hungry.
CRACKER CRUMB: Only one shutout has been recorded in the ten
All-Star games. In the eighth contest, played on July 9, 1940, in Sportsman's
Park, St. Louis, the Nationals blanked the Americans, 4-0. The senior
league pitchers were Paul Derringer, Bucky Walters, Whitlow Wyatt, Larry
French and King Carl Hubbell. Derringer, who started, was credited with
the victory.
