Winning Run in Tenth
Scored by Wakefield
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, July 29-Paul (Dizzy)
Trout, Detroit Tiger mound work-
horse who'd rather bat any day than
pitch, slapped a fly to left with the
bases loaded and one out in the
tenth inning today, enabling Dick
Wakefield to score from third and
giving Detroit a 3 to 2 victory in the
opener of a four-game series with the
New York Yankees.
Trout, who was batted out of the
box by Boston in the fifth inning
yesterday, relieved Ruffus Gentry

wi"" the score tied and two men on
in the Yankee ninth, and pitched the
last two putouts of the inning with-
out further scoring. The victory,
credited to Trout, was his 15th of the
year against nine losses.
Milkman Jim Turner, who pitched
the last two innings after relieving
Emerson Roser, was charged with the
New York, trailing 2 to 1 with one
out in the ninth, tied it up when Bud
Metheny singled to right, scoring
pinchhitter Russell Derby, who had
led off the inning with a double. Her-
chel Martin singled Metheny to third
and Gentry to the showers.
Wakefield walked to lead off the
Tiger tenthsand Pinky Higgins singl-
ed him to second. Both advanced on
Paul Richards' grounder to third and
Turner purposely walked pinchhitter
Chuck Hostetler to fill the bases,
setting things up for Trout's game-
Trout Hurls Well
Trout pitched to only six Yankee
batters and set them down flaw-
lessly. Coming. on the scene with
one run in, one out and Yanks on
first and third in the ninth, he took
Jolinny Lindell's bouncer and made
Bud Metheny a run-down victim be-
tween third and the plate, Herschel
Martin taking third and Lindell sec-
ond on the chase. Nick Etten was
purposely passed, filling the bases,
and Rollie Hemsley skied to Jim
Outlaw for the third out.
Outlaw's single and Rudy York's
double netted the Tigers a one-run
lead in the first, which became 2 to
0 in the fourth when Higgins doubled,
Paul Richards sacrificed him to third
and Joe Hoover singled him home.
Yanks Get Eight Hits
New York's first run came in the
fifth on Metheny's double and two
outfield flies on which he advanced
after the catch.
The Yankees collected eight hits
off Gentry, three of them during the
ninth inning rally. Detroit had nine
safeties off Roser's offerings and two
The defeat, knocking New York
into third place behind the idle Bos-
ton Red Sox, was the eighth loss for
the Yanks in a dozen games with the
Tigers this year.
The same teams meet in a double-
header tomorrow with Lefty Hal
Newhouser and Frank Overmireof
Detroit opposing Hank Borowy and
Atley Donald of New York on the
mound. A break from the weather-
man could boost Briggs Stadium at-

Michigan Gets C
Keith Harder, outstanding high school and University of Virginia
athlete who won. all-state recognition in basketball, is a formidable candi-
date for next year's cage squad.
Harder is a well-traveled person. He was born in Fairfield, Iowa
almost 19 years ago and has lived in Chattanooga, Tennessee and Wash-
ington, D. C.
While he was at Redbank High School in Chattanooga, he played
on the cage team for three years. In his sophomore and junior years
he was elected to the All-Tournament team for his district. He also
found time to participate in baseball and had the distinction of win-
ning a letter in that sport.
Then his family moved to Washington, D. C. where Harder went to
McKinley High School and garnered two letters, one in basketball, as might
be expected, and another in tennis. Not only did this hoopster win his
letter in basketball but his ability put him on the All-Metropolitan team.
The tall basketeer, who stands 6 ft. 3 in., did not stop there in his
athletic career but was named Best Player in the nation's capitol-an
award given annually in Washington to the player who displays the most
talent during the season.
When he graduated from high school, the tall, lanky hoopster passed
the Navy V-12 tests. On being inducted into the Navy, he was stationed
at the University of Virginia. There he was a forward on the varsity.
One might easily call him "Eagle-eye" Harder, as he'was the
highest scorer in the state of Virginia last year. The fact that he was
the highest scorer no doubt helped him a great deal, when the time
came to pick the All-State squad. He was chosen as a forward on last
year's All-State team.
"Eagle-eye" Harder was transferred here by the Navy, as the Univer-
sity of Virginia did not offer the higher courses in his major, aeronau-
tical engineering. This rangy cager is by no means merely an athlete.
B', his average, is above the normal one for a university student.

to stand up through the second and

490-yard par 5 eight hole, a dogleg
to the right, both faded their tee
shots into the rough among pine

4 wood, overclubbed but the ball
plunked smack into the flag and
dropped within two feet of the cup
for an eagle 3. Wood's second miss-

he missed the putt for a bogey 5 and
went 1-down, never to catch up.
