Two Wins Xeeded Steve O'Neill's men. however, are not depending on a flood-tide to carry them into their first flag since 1940. Two triumphs over the Senators with concurrent double losses by the Browns to the Yanks would give the Tigers the 11144 A. L. championship and establish them as opponents of the St. Louis Cards in the world series starting in St. Louis Wednesday. Today's schedule is crammed with exciting potentialities.

Two losses by the Tigers and a pair of wins by the Brownies would put the St. Louis boys ahead by a game. Hot? This race is blistering. Yanks Least Favored Of the three teams in the scrap, the Yankees are least favored by the schedule, since tiie Tigers and Browns finish at home. It was only through their recent efforts that the Yankee road record was lifted to a .500 average, and even should they win Ihe remaining four games, they would have to be helped along by Detroit losses to stay in contention.
