DET@BOS 7/21/35 notes - Shouts Confident Tm Ready for 'Em Says Rowe,...
Shouts Confident Tm Ready for 'Em Says Rowe, Who'll Start Today Regardless of Rivals' Choice By Charles P. Ward BOSTON, July 21 "Now bring on those Yankees," said Schoolboy Rcwe confidently today after Trainer Trainer Denny Carroll had put his arm through its regular loosening-up loosening-up loosening-up process, "I'm ready for 'em." Mickey Cochrane intends to start Rowe in Monday's opener against the Yanks at New York regardless of who pitches for New York. If Lefty Gomez pitches for the Yanks Tuesday, Victor Sorrell will start for the Tigers. If Joe McCarthy McCarthy decides to save Gomez until Wednesday. Gen. Crowder will pitch fcr the Tigers Tuesday and Sorrell will go Wednesday. Rowe will make his second start of the series In Thursday's game, which will wind up the series. In starting Rowe against the Yankees without waiting to hear Joe McCarthy's pitching selection. Cochrane abandons a policy that he used successfully successfully last season. Then, it will be iemembered, Mickey refused to start his ace moundsman against the opposition's ace. Rowe is convinced he will be able to turn in two victories over the Yankees. "I feel as good as I ever did," he said, "and ought to do all right. I don't worry about those fellows, ntver did. Even when the Babe we s with them." Gerald Walker, who became the "goaf of today's game whea he fanned three times with men on bases and also misjudged a fly ball, can square himself by getting the "goat" of Johnny Allen when " he pitches against the Tigers In the Yankee series. The best way to beat "Jawn" Is to get him sore, for he has a temper like a skyrocket. While they were playing in the International League together. Walker learned just what v)ils to use in order to stir Allen up. He haa used his formula frequently frequently the last few years and usually usually with great success. Although the Tigers trounced the Red Sox three times in four games, thev dirl not mar the lightning spirit of Manager Joe Cronin. "You were lui-kv lui-kv lui-kv to win the first three games," growled the heavy-chinned heavy-chinned heavy-chinned Joe as the Tigers departed for New York. The sei iei just closed was a bad one for the umpires, who h.d to - call close play after close play. In the eighth inning. Umpire Bill Summers Summers called Tommy Bridges out on a close play at first when Bridges seemed to be safe. However, the Tigers won the nod on several other decisions, so it all probably evened up. According to Sunday's batting averages, Hank Greenberg, with 110 runs batted in to his credit, has driven more runs across the plate than AJ Simmons and Lou Gehrig put together. Lou had 58 and Al 45. Next to the Red Sox, Hub fans would like to see the Tigers win the pennant. Since the Sox have beaten beaten the Yanks in their season's series. Hub fans as a rule don't think much of the New Yorkers' prowess. . One of the saddest men in Boston after the gme must have been "Little Mac," Mickey Cochrane's friend from Holbrook. Mass. Little Mac is a Celt who comes down to Boston every time the Tigers are in town and declares himself loudly for Cochrane and his Bengals. If somebody should happen to suggest that the Tigers are not the greatest ball club in the league and Cochrane not by all odds the greatest manager, Lit-tile Lit-tile Lit-tile Mac is not averse to taking off his coat ind deciding the Vliune Turn to Page 12 -Column -Column 3 The Sportlight "You may recall the fact," I said to Mickey Cochrane, sometimes, but not often, known as Gordon Stanley Cochrane, "that just about a year ago you broke the news that your Tigers were on their way to a pennant. How do you feel about it now?" "We are still on our way to a pennant," the triple threater replied, replied, "but it may be over a harder road. With an even break in the casualty list, I still think we'll get there. I'll admit these Yankees have a lot of high-class high-class high-class pitching to ; throw at a club. They have both : quality and quantity, but our own : staff has finally swung around. 'Take, for example. Schoolboy : Rowe. He got away to a bad, cold-! cold-! cold-! weather start because he happens to be a warm-weather warm-weather warm-weather pitcher. This is true of most good pitchers. You
