Ferrell, e the I; be i j-:hie im: Down Red Sox as Yanks Lose One Big Inning Gives Bridges His 20th Victory of Year By Charles P. Ward BOSTON, Sept. 16 The Tigers came a step nearer to clinching the American League pennant today when they defeated the Red Sol, 5 to 3, while the second-place Yankees were bowing to the Browns in New York. The victory again in creased the Tigers' lead to nine and a half games and made it possible for them to clinch the pennant by making a clean sweep of the present series. A sweep here is unlikely, however, for Joe Cronin still has his ace hurlers, Wes Ferrell and Lefty Grove, in reserve, and at least one of them is reasonably sure of pulling out a victory for the Red Sox. So it is likely that the Bengals will have to wait until they return west before clinching the flag. Perhaps they will do it in the series with the Browns at Navin Field Saturday and Sunday. , . One big Inning, during which they scored five tuns, whs enough to give the Tigers, the edge ovr the Red Sox todav and Tommy Bridges his twentieth victory of the season. The little man from Ten nessee was touched for 1(1 hits bv the Sox. but the Knstonians found him difficult to score upon In tin pinches. Three times the Sox filled the bases but were unable to score. A strong wind which blew In from left field throughout the game gave the Tigers plenty of help, however. Tigers Get 8 Hits Jack Wilson and Stewart Bowers, who pitched for the Sox. held th Tigers to eight hits, Wilson being touched for all of them. But the : young right hander from the Coast i League made the mis'nke of per muting me Tigers to hunch four of them In the fourth inning, and was charged with the defeat. He was handicapped by some crackpot defensive work by his sup. port. The Tigers were trailing. 1 to 0, when Manager Mickev Cochrane opened the fourth with single to center. Charley Gehringer bounced a single off Wilson's hip. and after Hank Greenberg struck out. Goose Goslin drew a base on balls, filling the sacks. Gerald Walker then propelled n single to center which scored Cochrane and Gehringer, and when j Mel Almada's throw bounded over ! R""k '"rill's head. Goslin went In Ihi.J ftnll.n. ... I i.-.. .

P.ov's kick was a perfect punt to Melllllo who was so surprised when the. bn II reached him that he ti;i nnd threw a strike across thirl bsse and In'o the Tiger dugout, Oscar thought he could throw Walker out at third but neglected to notice that the bag was uncovered.
