Make Seventh Kerb Anyway, if the Tigers make it into the world Belies again lliis time it will be their seventh a).earanre in the classic. Their last appeal a nee was in mil), when they struggl"! to defeat against the incinn: Itcds in seven sanies by virtue ui the pitching of Walters, mostly, hi.) Derringer against Buck Newsii , who arose to the heights in trying almost si lisle-handed to stem tie tide. Old ISo-Bo bad to try it single-handed, almost. He was the ace in the -risers' deck, the big winner or the year and the one man they could rely on to stop the Jteds. He didn't quite make it. but he save it a toush l il'fle. He won his rirst two starts, al-lnwins a srand total of just two runs, but when he tried to make it three in a row in the seventh and final same Derringer beat liiui, 2 to 1. II was a terriric series in many ways, with most or the participants, in'luding NewHom. now pmf elsewhere, many of them into the services, of course. Itrow ns Second liolce If the 'risers fail to S't in. then the Iirowns certainly sltould lake the pennant and make it an all-St. Louis affair. The Sew Vork Yankees are confronted by loo many obstacles now, notable a finish in the west. They have been pretty sood to set out in front by a whisker, but there is reason to doubt that I hey are sood enoiish to beat the Browns and the Tigers in their own backyards. II seems saTe to -write by this time that t he champs of the baseball world thus are in process of being dethroned, barring some kind of a miracle, and this is no year for miracles from the Yanks or any other club, except possibly the Cards who remain up to pre-war standards. ;iants, IliKlKers Win In w hat the eastern storms left of baseball yesterday, the New- York Giants trounced the Philadelphia Phillies and the Brooklyn Dodgers edged out the Boston Braves. Both sanies were only the first halves of scheduled twin bills, but the night-caps were washed out. The Giants' win over the Phillies was by a healthy niarsin, 12 to 1. Bill Voiselle became a IMl-game winner when Ernie Lonibardi sparked a sixth-inning, eisbt-run drive with a four-run homer. The Dodgers, however, had a close 5 to 4 scjucak in winning over the Braves. It was a ninth-inning sinsle with the bases loaded by Au-Sie Galan that pulled the Dodders throusli. In the filial two sanies of the day the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates split a twin bill, the Pin.tes. winning the first same. S tu 2, in IS innings and the Cubs taking the nightcap, i to 2.

However, the way things wn- shaping up there is considerable conviction that the Timers can take the Cardinals iu the series. The reason is obvious and simple.
