They ( h*vp won IB games and lost 13 for the season after a poor start and at this time last year they had only 12 wins against 14 losses. Yet in 1945, Washington put 011 a brilliant stretch drive and all but overtook the Detroit Tigers, finishing a scant game and a half behind the winners. It isn't in the percentages lor Washington to come through with another laic season bid. yet on the. basis of their recent up surge they ar e entitled lo strong consideration as a dark-horse contend- i er. An awesome display of power with special stress on extra base hits is keeping the Senators winning.
