Wes FerrelFs Homer Cost Tigers Ground Sox Hurler Breaks Up Game in Ninth with Two Men On to Gain Revenge Continued from First fsport Page that he kicked the pitcher's rosin bag all the way to the Red Sox dug out, Bridgs Has to Work Hard Up until the ninth it was a nip-and-tuck nip-and-tuck nip-and-tuck nip-and-tuck nip-and-tuck mound duel between Boston's Boston's Old Mose and the Tigers' Little Little Tom. Bridges has been having trouble, controlling his curve ball recently and had to work hard every step of the way. He was penalized by an error by Goslin and a piece of bad judgment by Walker on a fly ball in the fifth. Grove pitched good ball in the early part of the game. His old fire ball was working and he held the Timers to four hits in the first five innings. But he tired later on and almost lost out in the ninth. The Sox got away in the lead, scoring a run in the first inning, but the Tigers forged in front by tallying twice in the second. They remained ahead until the fifth when the Sox scored twice to take a 3-to-2 3-to-2 3-to-2 3-to-2 3-to-2 edge, which existed until the eighth when the Tigers scored once and tied it up again. The tie lasted only a short time, however, when the Sox registered a run in their half of the eighth and were ahead when the Tigers opened their big rally in the ninth. Melillo helped the Sox to the run they scored in the first inning. He singled to left and moved down to second base when Almada sacrificed sacrificed to Owen. Johnson scored him with a single to right, but overran first base and was trapped and run down when Greenberg cagily cut off Fox's throw from the outfield. Bridges ended the inning by throwing a third strike past Miller. That old Mose "had it" was apparent apparent from the start. He was put in a slight jam when Melillo fumbled Gchringer's grounder after two were out in the first inning but got out of it by nonchalantly inducing Greenberg to pop an easy foul to Werbcr. Pass Forces in a Run Mose tried to sneak the old "fire ball" past Goslin in the second and got into trouble. The Goose hit it to right for a single and went down to second when Hayworth scratched a one-baser one-baser one-baser to Melillo after Rogell struck out. Hayworth's cheap hit must have annoyed the old fellow for he up and walked Owen and Bridges in succession, the puss to Bridges forcing Goslin home with the tying run. Hayworth went home when Fox hit a high bounder to the box, but Mose got Walker on a grounder to Wecbcr. Rick Ferrell hit Bridges' first pitch to him in the second for a single to right but advanced no farther than first base, being thrown out by Hayworth when he attempted to steal as Cronin swung at a third strike. A pass and another scratchy hit to short caused Old Mose a few Woods and Waters By Jack Van Coevering Stream Improvement Inspection A short time ago, I suggested that before stream improvement improvement woik is undertaken in trout streams, parties of interested interested fishermen be invited for an inspection trip, and that a similar trip be made, say, a year after the improvements ate In. Such procedure would help anglers to understand the technique of stream improvement improvement and enlist their interest In the work. In response to this suggestion, Roy Johnston, water water technician anxious moments in the third but he managed to keep the Tigers from scoring. Gehringer opened the inning by drawing a base on balls. Greenberg flied out to Miller in deep right and Goslin fouled to Dahlgien. But Rogell moved Gehringer Gehringer to second by beating out a single to Cronin in deep short. He failed to go any farther, however, for Hayworth ended the inning by forcing Rogell. The Sox did nothing important in their half of the third, but in the fourth Old Mose got. into difficulty when Fox lifted a fly back of first base after two were out, and was ci edited with a double. That brought up Walker, a pretty fair light-handed light-handed light-handed hitter. He tried to murder Old Moses fast ball and Old Mose threw it past him three times. Sox Go In Lead Again The Detroit fifth was devoid of excitement, but in the home half the Sox uprose and scored two runs to put Old Mose out in front once more. The Tigers helped the cause along by inserting a couple of mis-plays mis-plays mis-plays where they would do their ovvi. club the most harm. Of course, they didn't mean to cause Bridges tnv difficulty. Kick Ferrell led off and drove Bridge's first pitch past Fox for three bases. Cronin scored him with a single to left and went to second when Goslin, intent on getting away a quick throw to the plate, muffed the ball. Werber sacrificed his boss to third from where he scored when Dahlgren hit a "dime store" double back of second base. This pop fly would have been a putout but Walker thought he was Roy Relgels and ran and ran away from it. He reversed his field when he saw Fox go tearing toward short center after the ball but was unable to get under it in time to make the catch. Little Tom bore down then and ended further scoring by throwing a third strike past Grove and causing Melillo to ground to Rogell. Hayworth gave the Tigers the opportunity to tie it up again in the sixth when he doubled to left aftei two were out, but Old Mose kept them from taking advantage of the opportunity. He caused Owen to bound to the box and then induced Bridges to ground to Werber Werber for the final out. Walker Strikes Out Again The Bengals had another opportunity opportunity in the seventh but again they muffed it, partly because of Mr. Grove's canny hurling. Fox led off with a bounder to deep short that Cronin was barely able to knock down. Walker tried the trick of attempting to murder Grove's fast one and struck out for the second successive time. Gehringer singled to right hut Fox stopped at second base when Baker waved the red lantuin after seeing Miller attempt to make a diving catch. That over cautious move did not hurt the Tigers, it developed later, for Greenberg went out on an easy foul to Rick Feneil and Goslin flied to Almada. Fox would not have scored even had he continued to third. Signs that Old Mose was beginning beginning to tire became apparent in the eighth and the Tigers broke through for a run that made the store 3 apiece. Hayworth, who made two doubles and a single for the Tigers today, wa.': responsible for this run. He doubled to left after one was out. Clifton was sent in to run for Ray and scored when Owen singled to Hfht. Grove opened the Boston half of the eighth by striking out. But Melillo drew a base on balls and, after Almada flied out, scored on Johnson's double to left, putting the Sox ahead again, 4 to 3. The victory was the only one for the Sox in the four games set. Immediately Immediately after the game the Tigers moved on to New York where tomorrow they will begin their crucial four-game four-game four-game series with the Yankees.
