THE HELENA DAILY INDEPENDENT, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11. 1934 TODAY YICTOHf FOB DETHOIT Detroit. Sept. Hitting two home runs, one In the seventh to tie the score and the other In the ninth, the bat of Hank Greenberg brought the Detroit Tigers a 2 to 1 victory over tho Boston Red Sox today. Elden Auker, freshman right- hander who hurled part of the first game of Saturday's twin-bill, was In as fine a form with his throwing arm as Greenberg was with his bat. He allowed only three hits and only bnlls altogether were bit out ot the Infield. Almada, th9 Spaniard recently brought back to Boston from Kansas City, connected with two of the safe blows. Gordon Okeh Gordon Rhodes would have been almost as effective but for tho presence of Oreenberc. He held Detroit to five hits, two of which were made by the giant Jewish first baseman and two by Manager Mickey Cochrane. The count was two and two on Greenberg when he leaned on the ball Iri the seventh Inning. It sailed high over the score board In left field to tie the score. In the i Hank, the first man at bat, hit the first pitched ball and the game was over. The two circuit drives boosted his total for the year to 23. The only Boston run came In the first Inning when Bishop walked, took second on an Infield out and scored as Almada conected with his first hit.

New York Giants' defense crumbled today as the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied In the ninth to score five runs to defeat the world champions to 7 for their seventh straight triumph. Tho defeat, the Giants' third successive setback, reduced the lead of the champions over the Cardinals to four games. The Giants were charged with six errors, throe of them In the ninth when the Pirates coupled timely hits with the mistakes to chalk up the victory. They drove Hal Schumacher, seeking his 22nd triumph, from the mound and continued their hitting off Carl Hubbell. Schumacher was charged with the defeat, his seventh of tho season. Homers. Help Three home runs by Gtis Mancuso, Hughle Criti and Mel Ott helped to pile up a commanding lead for the Olsnts. but It was undermined by their ragged fielding, in which every member of the start- Ing lineup with the exception of Joe Moore, Manager Bill Terry and Ott had a part. Ott'a homer was his 33rd and gave him the National league lead. The champions scored twice In the second when Mancuso hit his homer and three times In the third as Crltz and Ott parked the ball In the stands. Walte Hoyt was taken out for a pinch hitter In the fourth and the Giants picked up two more runs off Heinle Melne apd Burlelgh Grimes and seemed to have the game sewed up, until they blew sky high In the ninth. Bobblera Fatal Five of the New York errors figured In Pittsburgh's scoring. The Pirates scored twice in the fonrth without the aid of an error. They counted one run In the sixth and put over another In the seventh without a hit, Lloyd Waner racing home from first when Schumacher and Crltz let loose wild throws after Paul Waner had hit a roller down the first base line. The ninth saw Grace, L. Waner and Vaughan hit singles, Paul Waner walk and Ver gez. MancuBo and Lelber contribute Trors. PnTBBrjROH-- AB PO A Waner. cf 4 1 1 3 0 0 I.lnd'lrom. If 5 1 0 3 0 0 P.

Willis, Loulainnn ex-convict, tonight was convicted of crim InnI asu.iiilt on Mrs. Maxwell Her ring, young bride and former Unl varsity of Texas student, and assessed tho death penalty by a that deliberated 45 minutes. Possibilities of a game here between East Heleua and the Colored Giants of Butte, seemed near reality yesterday when Manager Kes Klg- lor of East Helena, wrote to the Butte champions offering them a game here, probably Thursday. The Colored Giants are one of the most colorful (no teams ever assembled In this state. The fact Is that most of them hall from Ark- adelphla, Arkansas, and are anxious to get far and wide of Bntte where the thermometer is reputed to do things to black boys and toes. So they want a game here to help pay their traveling expenses to the Arkansas hinterland. a However, the game has considerable possibilities of being what the fans are looking for. The Butte colored stars are champions of the Inter-city league, having deefated the Laurel Leafs of Anaconda, winner of one-half of the pennant. East Helena Is one of the finalists in the State leaguo championship series and a game between them would be Interesting. The benefit game Sunday produced considerable revenue as well as giving the fans here a gnat little exhibition that proved to be anybody's ball game right down to the final blow. There was a fine crowd out for the contest and they apparently had plenty of fun. Now that the baseball seasoa Is Just about over, we will become a bit braver and attempt to do something In the way of picking an all- star aggregation. This Is a plenty risky business and calls for more courage than brains. It Is more or less just one fan's opinion against the mob but the selections are based on all-round performance and In many cases the selection can be justly challenged. But throwing the well-known caution to the winds, here goes for our opinion of just about the best ball team that could be put together out of league. At first base we nominate "Mud dy" Hudoklln of East Helena. He It a better hitter than either Mitchell or Jack Brlscoe and fields well enough to offset their ability in that department. At second baae, Eddie Smith, hustling young East Helena Infleld- er who can also work very nicely at short, gets tho nod. Smith Is dangerous hitter ss well as a sensational fielder.

GOLF OPENING IN BROOKLINE Brookllne, Sept. --A new Bobby Jones flashed across the American amateur golf today 18-year-old Robert Carpenter Jones, Detroit-o whip the renowned Francis Ouimet at the veteran's own game and urnlsh the sensation ot the first round of the 38th national cham plonshlp. With Atlanta's Bobby Jones among an excited gallery of spectators, almost unnoticed in the rush to watch this brilliant young new comer to golfing fame, the Detroit boy withstood heavy pressure from start to finish and by virtue of his spectacular putting eliminated Out- met by the slender margin of one up In 18 holes. Toung Jones not only failed to crack at any stage of their thrilling close match but outplayed Oulmet with one of the day's finest performances, a 72 for Brookllne's classic course that was only one over par and two shots better than the veteran's medal score. First for Him It was the Detroit star's first national championship, his first bid for recognition outside the junloi ranks, whereas Oulmet has missed few big: tournaments In more than 20 years and possessed the additional advantage of playing over the course where he made golf history in 1913 by beating Ted Ray and Harry Vardon for the American open crown. Against a veteran famous for his putting exploits, the Detroit bo; displayed something akin to an In spired touch on the greens. After losing the first, but winning the third to square the match, where Oulmet was in trouble all the way Jones halved nine consecutive holes with the aid of his brilliant putting On two occasions, with a sldebll 12-foot putt on the short seventh and a 26-footer on the 10th, Bobby saved holes that Oulmet seemed to have clinched. Having thus stood off Oulmefs gallant attempts to regain the lead Jones capitalized hla opportunity to win the 405-yard 13th and thereby gain what proved the decisive mar' gin. Hero Oulmet was bunkered and unable to recover as Jones chipped within five feet of the cup and sank his putt for a winning par four. Old Guard On Job Despite Oulmefs downfall and the upset of Max Marston, Phlla delphla, a former champion and 1983 runner-up to George T. Dun lap, the old guard of American golf emerged from the opening sklr mlsh with flying colors. Marston, playing raggedly after gaining a two-hole lead, lost to Knox Young. Pittsburgh, one up. Chick Evans, Chicago. Chandler Egan of California, Jess Oullford Boston, and Davldsop Herron. Pitts burgh, all former holders of the crown, were triumphant. Evans, with flashes of his old skill, defeated Crawford Rainwater Atlanta, 3 and 2, with only one the 16 holes halved. Egan disposed of Wolcott Brown, former New Jer sey state champion, 3 and 1. Gull ford battered down Gordon Taylor Montreal, 5 and 4, and Horron ellm inated Hal Chase, Des Moines, and 1. All told, seven ex-champions re malnod In the title, hunt In the firs all-match play tournament conduct ed In SI years.

At that's the way Coach D. Bible sizes up the Cornhusker leven as be faces a nine-game chedule and a quest for a fourth onsecutlve Big Six conference hamplonshlp with perhaps the reatest team In Nebraska gridiron Franklin Meier, all-Big Six center act year, IB the only regular of the 933 team back.
