COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, 1939 'TKEBBiM Today's Sport Parade By Henry Biggest Bass Grove Bests Feller In Hurling Duel; Greenberg Hits Pinch Homer BY GEORGE KIRKSfiV United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Aug. 2 (TJP)—Tlie Yankees 'and Die Reds, perlmps dreaming of October and more important things' than an ordinary ball game, «ere smacked light between the eyes yesterday by a pair of second division clubs. The Yanks, with nn eight-game lead, snd the Reds, with an 11-game ad- vcutJcrOj are In no Immediate danger bnt disastious slumps are bo:n cf j't5i such exhibitions as they p^t up yesteiday.

Paul Derringer, with a record of H and 4, got hf'iself in a peck of trouble in the sixth frame with .two out and a 3-0 lead. Before lie could put the fire out, the Giants had a 4-3 lead. Wally Berger's homer tied the score and sent the game Into the 10th when again with two out, Hank Danning's single scored the winning run, downing the Reds, S-4. Danning! had pre^ iously had a triple to score two runs in the sixth inning uprising. A'fte'r 10 straight wins, the Reds were due for a loss. Thc Giants have now won three in a row, but are 15 games off the pace, and there isn't any pennant talk buz- 2ing around the Terrymen. However, the Giants are anxious to cool oil the Reds, blaming them for all theh trouble growing out of Harry Craft's disputed homer at the Polo Grounds In mid-June. Bob Feller, .who -has been trailed by a jinv ever since the all-slar game, had another defeat plastered on him when the Red Sox batted him,out of the box in six innings "and beat the Indians, 7-5. Bobby Doerr personally took charge of ruining Feller's effort. He hit two homers off him, one with the hases loaded. Bob Grove went the route to score his nth victory Umpire Cal Hnbbard chased Manager Oscar Vltt, Bruce Campbell, Harry Eisentata, and Odell Hale out of the game. 'Jack Knott pitched the White Sox 'to a. 4-1 victory over the Athletics,- Eddie Collins, Jr., scoring the'.nnv which robbed him of a shut out in the ninth. Slamming out 14 hits, Washington beat the Browns, 7-5. Two triples by 'Johnny Mize and one by Pepper Martin featured the Cardinals' 4-3 victory over the Bees.. The winning rim, however, came in on Tony Ciicclneilo's error. Curt Davis won his Hth game. Bill Nicholson, Cubs' rookie outfielder, made an auspicious debut by hitting a homer and driving in •• two. runs as the Cubs, beat the Phillies, 6-2. Dizzy Dean had to quit after three frames, complaining of a sore arm. Larry French, who had been complaining his arm was getting rusty because Manager Gabby Hartnett has boycotted him, finished the game, and allowed only six hits in six heats. Brooklyn took a 5-3 decision from Pittsburgh, . knocking the Pirates to fourth as the Cubs moved up. Dixie Walker hit two triples and a single, driving in two runs. Fred Filjsimmons. vrith some relief from Tnmul's, won his fourth game. Yesterday's hero—Hank Green- bergs, Detroit's slugger who hit hpmtr Ko. 20 w:th two mates on has; to give the Tigers a 5-2 decision over the Yanks.

"You should have seen him yesterday," Gomez said. "We were still in sight of the flock when Joe got so seasick \vc had to turn back. Where did you do your fishing in Sim Francisco?" "Right oil the pier," DiMaggio snid. "A nice steady pier, too." DIMaggio, baseball's greatest hitter, and Gomez, one of, If not the worst, hitters In the game, then got to arguing about hitting. Gomez sighed:for the old days, back In. the''eighties, when a batter had the right to call for the kind of pitch he wanted. "That would have helped you," Jo agreed. "If you could have ever decldcd'~whal sort of n pitch you could hit, you might have been a two hundred hitter in those dnys." Gomez laughed gcod naluredly and asked Joe what kind of n pitch he would liave always called far if he had been playing in these days. "Just one kind. A pretty fast one, stomach high. Boy, that 'would have been fun," "Yea," chimed in Bill Dickey, who stood nearby holding n chest pro- tcctcr and -leg warmers in case he got cold cut on the playin; field where it was only 102. "Yeah, it would have been fun until pay day came around and you walked up with your .450 batting average to collect twenty dollars for your week's work." "You got something there," said Joe. "I'll lake what the pitcher decides lo throw me." Out the Yanks went to suffer under the Ccnno sun.
