Rowe to Face Griffs in Final Pettit, Rookie Hurler, to Oppose Him By Charles P. Ward Schoolboy Rowe, who has been pitching like his old self of late, will start on the mound against the Griffs today and attempt to make it four out of five for the Tigers. In his last start the Schoolboy shut out the Yankees with four hitn. The Schoolboy will be seeking his seventh victory of the season and his fourth straight triumph. Rowe is likely to be opposed by Leon Pettit, young right-hander who comes from, of all places, Burnt House, W. Va. Today's game will close the Tigers' present stand at Navln Field. Wednesday they will open a series at Chicago. They will also play a series at St. Louis before returning to Detroit Monday for a series with the Indians. Before yesterday's game somebody in the Washington dugout hazarded a guess that there are probably 15,000,000 young men of baseball age in the United States. "And look at the pitching staff that we have to put up with," Bucky Harris Is reported to have sourly said. Bucky has been having trouble with his pitchers lately. Fred Schulte deprived Goslin of an extra base hit when he ran back to the bleachers and made a one-hand catch of his line drive in the fourth inning of yesterday's game. Some of the Tigers wanted to shout, "How do you like that. Earl?" when Travis muffed Rogell's easy fly in the tenth. Earl used to be able to express himself very well on occasions like that. The error did him no damage, however, for the Tigers failed to score.
