There may be a runaway in the
major leagues this year, but right
now the Milwaukee Braves, not
the New York Yankees, appear to
be the team able to do it.
Only a week ago the Yanks were
riding roughshod over American
League opposition and had built
up a seemingly invincible five
game lead over their nearest ri-
vals, the Chicago White Sox.
At just about the same time, the
Braves had fallen four games off

homered earlier only to have
Thomson, who also homered, single
in the second and third runs of the
inning.'
Washington 5, Detroit 3
D E T R O I T-Clint Courtney's
two-run pinch homer in the eighth
gave the Washington Nationals a
5-3 victory over Detroit and sent
the Tigers reeling to their ninth
straight defeat.
The Tiger's losing streak is the
longest in the American League
this season.
It was an uphill battle all the

Former 'M' Baseball Players
Pay Tribute to Coach Fisher,

the tight National League pace
and with four hot teams ahead of
them, seemed doomed to remain
in the second division.
Manager Change
The turning point for the
Braves came slightly earlier than
for the Yanks. Charlie Grimm,
Milwaukee manager since the
team came into the league in 1953,
was replaced by ex-Pirate and
Brownie manager Fred Haney
June 16.
Immediately the Braves caught
fire, rolling up ten straight vic-
tories to give them the largest lead
enjoyed in the Senior Circuit this
season-two games.
What happened to the Yankees?
They had the misfortune to jour-
ney into Chicago when Marty
Marion's White Sox had suddenly
begun to click. This past weekend
the ChiSox extended their winn-
ing streak to eight games by up-
ending the Yanks four games in
a row.
Braves More Secure
This left the Yanks with a nar-
rower lead in the American loop
than the Braves enjoyed in the
National.
Instrumental in the Braves'
surge has been continued strength
of their league-leading pitching
staff combined with the newly-
returned batting punch of such

veterans as Bobby Thompson, Joe
Adcock and Eddie Matthews.
For the White Sox, who have
also relied almost exclusively on
a strong hurling staff, Larry
Doby's shaking of a season-long
slump was the key to closing the
gap on the Bronx diamondmen.
When the Yankees' mainstays-
center fielder Mickey Mantle and
pitcher Whitey Ford-slumped,
the unspectacular supporting cast
was unable to keep the club in
high gear.

June '15 was a red-letter , day
for the dean of Michigan coaches,
Ray Fisher of the baseball squad."
More than 50 of his former Wal-
verine ball players honored him at
a banquet at the Union in com-
memoration of his 15 Big Ten
championships in 36 years of
coaching at Michigan.'

Major League Scores

Principal speaker at the affair
was former major league general
manager sand ex-Wolverine coach
Branch Rickey, the man who re-
commended Fisher for his job at
Michigan.
Three plaques were presented to
Fisher by former stars. Bob
Knode, Bud Chamberlain and Don
Lund. Each plaque was in honor
of five of the coach's title-winning
years.
Old-Timers vs. Youngsters
In conjunction with the affair
an Old-Timers-Youngsters ball
game was staged in the afternoon.
Fisher, a former hurler for the
Cincinnati Redlegs, pitched two
innings for the Old-Timers and
allowed only one run and one hit.
Otherwise, the pitching in the
five-inning tilt was not so good
and the teams ended in a tie score,
4-4.
