(UP)— DI/?.y Dean wasn't lalklng through his hat when he iwppcd off: "Let me pitch more often. I'm I!red of being a Sunday pitcher." Thc Cubs' front olfiee took him at his wcrd and give Gabby Hnrtnctl permission to start him any lime he deemed Dean was ready. Ifart- nel'l sent Demi lo the wars yesterday ,wHh only three days of rest, and:Dizzy was superb. He pitched the Cubs to a 7-1 triumph over the nccs. (Hey, slop picking spots for Diy.y.y, the fans yelled). Dean has four straight triumphs, two over thc Bees and one 'each over thc Dodgers ami I'lratcs. He now has qualified to pilch against a, first division club but he can't until Harlnett geUi permission from Ihe front office. "Dh-/,f, game guy Dial he is, will probably have to stalk In and demand that they let him pllcl'i against the upper crust. If there are any better pitchers In (he National League than Dean they'll have to prove it in competition. He's pllched four games and allowed a measly three runs. In his latest triumph he let the Bees down with six hits and had them on his hip all the way. They say he has o;ily a glove nnd a prayer, but that be Die fad this season. But the front o/Ilce doesn't semi w,ard to Joe McCarthy not to pilch Ruffing.

J nek Wilson finally pitched good ball, and the Red Six beat the Browns, 7-3. Wilson allowed only six hits. Jimmy Poxx got three hits, driving in two runs. The Athletics came from behind to trim the Tigers, G-5. Chubby Dean drove In llh'c winning rim In the ninth -with a sacrifice fly to offset three Detroit homers by McCosky, Avcrlll and Fox. Washington slugged out an 6-5 triumph over Cleveland.
