Tigers Down Griffs in 14th 11th Triumph Eludes Bridges Again Continued from First Sport rage Schulte ended the inning by hitting into a double play. That made it 8 to 5 in favor of Washington. There was little hope left in the Tiger breasts when they went to bat in the home half of the thirteenth. thirteenth. Mickey Cochrane sent Marvin Marvin Owen to bat for Bridges. It was one of those situations where a manager is expected to send In a pinch hitter, so Mickey sent Owen in although he didn't have much hope that he would be able to do much with Whitehill. But Owen brought a startled squawk from the Ladies' Day guests by doubling down the left field foul line. Pete Fox drew a pass and the folks began to nod knowingly to each other. The Tigers Tigers might do it, they thought, hopeless though it seemed. Goose Redeems Self Gee Walker followed Fox to the tee and slashed a bounder to Cecil Travis, forcing Owen at third base, but Hank Greenbcrg belted a single to center, scoring Fox and putting Walker on third. That brought up the Goose. The Goose had made three errors during the afternoon and had struck out on a bad pitch in the ninth with the winning run on base, but a group of Kids' Day guests in the left field pavilion were still for him. "'Ray, 'ray Goslin!" they chanted as the Goose lugged his hat to the plate in the thirteenth. The Goose looked thoughtfully toward his rooters. Then toward the right field bleachers. When Whitehill pitched, the Goose put his whole soul behind a swing and drove the ball on a line to right as the crowd broke into a roar. It looked like a home run and the ball game, but the ball failed to go Into the bleachers by a foot or two, and the hit became a double. It scored the tying runs, however, and paved the way for the victory in the fourteenth, so it can be said the Goose redeemed himself.

Myer opened with a single and fell in rounding second base when Travis singled after Manush popped to Rogell. Myer scrambled back to second base and consequently was able to advance only as far as third when Schulte dropped a single in short center. He was still there when Bolton hit into a double play, ending the inning. Whitehill I'ws His Head .
