Pitching one-hit ball through
six innings, Bob Lemon required
help in the ninth to* win as the
Indians whipped the Detroit Tig-
ers, 8 to. 4, in a twilight affair.
The victors sent Dizzy Trout
down to his fifth straight de-
feat with asthree-run spree in
the fifth that put them ahead
to stay. Indian batters bunched
four hits off Al Benton for three
more runs in the seventh and
never were pressed although 'Ed
Klieman was called in to stop
a Tiger threat in the ninth when
Detroit filled the bases with no-
In a successful ninth inning'

Although they were outhit, the
Bostqn Braves deieated the Na-
tional League leading Brook-
lyn Dodgers, 4-2, behind John-
ny Sain who turned in his 15th
victory against seven setbacks.
The loss placed the Brooks. only
six games ahead of the Cardi-
nals, who downed the Chicago
Cubs, 8-2. Harry Brecheen's 11-
hit pitching merged with home
runs by Del Rice and Whitey
Kurowski gave the Cards a
sweep of their two-game series.
Johnny Mize blasted his 33rd
and 34th home runs of the year
to pace the Giants to a 5-2 victory
over the Phillies. Lefty Dave Kos-
lo checked the Phils on three hits

BROOKLYN IS our native land, and according to reports from back
home, our Beloved Bums are resolved to maintain their present
top rung on the National League ladder . . . even in the absence of
Leo Durocher, who cracked the other day, "Burt Shotton doesn't want
to manage the club . . . He doesn't even want to wear a Dodger
uniform ... "
These words tend to indicate that Leo the Lip is apparently
worried about getting his job back next year .. . The Sporting
News, which usualy knows the answers, says Leo will manage the
Pittsburgh Pirates in '48 . . . Everybody's entitled to their own
We don't think there will be any suicides in Flatkush if Branch
Rickey doesn't plant Durocher in the driver's seat next year . . . The
way Shotton has been coasting along with the winning Brooks has
undoubtedly warmed the heart of every Dodger fan . . . and has
exploded the myth that Durocher is a "must" at Ebbetts Field.

Miss Lathrop Wins
Miss Jane Lathrop's drive which
was ten feet short of the mark,
was good enough for the number
one spot in the women's section.
A total of 336 golfers teed off
in the tourney, smacking 1,008
shots off the tee on the 150-yard
hole, and 188 of the pokes landed
on the green. The enthusiastic
response caused the Optimist Club
to decide to make this an annual
event hereafter, and next year's
tournament will also include a
