But iha(, as \ve stated, was a. month ago—iong before Luke Ap- plinjf broke his leg, and before Monty stratum threw lii.s arm out. Losing the offensive power per- -sonified In Zeke Bonura was bad enough, but losing Appling, loo. just about mined their piineli ai tlie plate. The star siiort-slop, who was one of (lie most'consistent hitters In the league, will tic- o;il for nt least three mouths. Defensive clubs have won ibe American League pennant, before, bul.

It would hurt any club to lose a pitcher of his caliber," explains Dykes. -But, If one of the youngsters comes through, we'll [;et Ijy all right.
