I Andrews Hurt by Owen s Hit During Fourth Coffman Relieves Him and Holds Bengals Well in Hand By Charles P. Ward ST. LOUIS, June 29 T hat eleventh victory of the season Still proves as elusive as a greased pll to Tommy Bridges. Tommy today made his third attempt to win No. 11 but was frustrated when the Browns batted their way to a 9 to 3 virtory in the third game of the series. Tommy had one consolation In defeat, however. He did not have to work over time and then fall to win. In his two previous attempts to win his eleventh triumph he pitrhed 12 Innings against New York and 13 against Washington all for nothing. Today he was lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth, and let Chief Hogaett finish. Since Tommy waa not at his best, this probably waa an Ideal arrangement, for today St. Louis was as hot and as steamy SJ the inside of a boiled potato, Andrews Is Hurt Paul Andrews and Dick Coffman hurled for the Browns and scattered 11 Tiger hits so well that the Bengals were unable to make them good for more than three runs. Andrews started the game hut retired In the fourth inning when struck on the elbow of his pitching arm by a line drive from the bat of Marvin Owen. Called into the game on short notice, Coffman kept the Tigers from scoring In that Inning, held them to one In succeeding innings and so was credited with the triumph. The Browns probably are a good hot weather club for they gave Bridges and Hogsett quite a pounding, pounding, collecting 13 hits. Every man in the line-tip line-tip line-tip Rhared in the hit pudding with the exception of Julius (The Moose, Lemons, Pop-eye) Pop-eye) Pop-eye) Solters, and Andrews. The latter went to bat only once, however, however, and might have grabbed a safety with a couple more chances to swing. What, No Homers! Hank Greenberg, Pete Fox and Mickey Cochrane were the only Tigers Tigers who made more than one hit off the offerings of the Mound City moundsmen. Hank did not get his dally home run, but did get his daily double and a couple of singles with which to decorate it. Fox and Cochrane each made two singles. Outside of the pitchers, the only Tiger who failed to get a hit was the old red gander of the Jersey marshes. Goose Goslln. Tha Goose went up to the twinging station four times and failed to connect successfully, thus going hitless for the first time in 17 games. The Browns won the gams In the first five innings, when they aot to Bridges for seven runs. Tommv's control wa bad and he found himself himself in difficulty from the start. Start In Second The scoring opened in the second inning when the Browns started two runs down the assembly line. Rollle Hemsley, who shared Brownie batting honors with Jack Burnett today, started the trouble when he doubled to left after one was out. Burnett doubled to right, scoring Rollie, and followed, him home when Ollie Bejma singled to center. The Tigers made up for those runs in the third, when thev tallied two runs of their own, but the Browns moved ahead acain bv scoring once in the home half and remained out in font from then until the finish. Manager Mike opened the Detroit third with a single to center. He remained on first as Gehringer popped out to Burnett but moved up to third when Greenberg singled to right, and scored when Goslln grounded out to Gift. Greenberg went to second on the putout and scored when Rogell drove a single to center.
