Balling Yankees Miss RiglilharuJecl DiMaggio; Red Sox Win .Again nV GKOKGi: KIIiKSICr Ifnitcil Press Stair t'orrcspuiiclcnt NEW V'ORK, April 2-1 il)I J )— The Yankees weren't laughing so ioud today at the Red Sox's challenge to knock them off the American League perch. 'Hie world's champions were down in fifth place and asking frantically: "When will Joe DiMaggio be; ready?" And skcpllcally. 'Who's Mickey Harris?" Harris is the 22- year-old rookie southpaw who pitched the Red Sox into the undisputed American League lead yf.sterday. Beaten twice hi four starts, the Yanks are beginning lo squirm a lltltc as the opposition pours southpaw pitching lo Ihem and their five lef^handeil hitlers, without, the rightltimded hilling Di- Mageio in there, aren't, breaking down any fences. DiMaggio is still nursing some pulled tendons in his ankle and may be out longer than at first expected. It's doubtful if he'll be able to play In lloston tomorrow and FrMny. Without (he great Dimat', the Yankee batting order is candy for a smart left- hander as witness Chubby Dean's 4-hit 3-0 victory over them yesterday. .The Yanks have worries from the outside as well as the Inside. Their most dangerous rivals, Die Red .. Sox, came up with n lefthander named Mickey Harris yesterdny who plastered a 7-2 detent on Washington, allowing only seven hits, Harris helps the Her!
