(U! 1 )— Ill the midst of early season prosperity and a pcnnaul kjoum, Earl John-. sen of the Red Sox Is on relief and manager Joe Cronlii Isn't the least bit interested In doing uny- [hlng about It. 'thai may be no way to treat a 'ii'tuined wnr-hcro who was coin- nl.ssloned u lieutenant on the field of battle in France for exlraordi- inry valor, but his is no hardship case. Instead, H is the hitters who swing against the nerveless 27-year- old left hjinder from Redmond, Wash., who are about destitute. There Is virtual bankruptcy in the hitting depai ttnenl whenever Johnson lakes the •mound. Because a top-night relief pitcher is one of the main assets of contending chib, Johnson is beginning to rank ns one of the most valuable players In the Red Sox pennant picture. He has established himself as the only first class relief pitcher in the American League in the campaign thus far and the only reason that he hasn't been busier is because the Boston starters have gotten by without much help. Ho has made three relief appearances to date and in each case he has emerged the winning pitch-, er. Moreover, during his chores as a "fireman" |K> has given up itnly one run and just four hits In 1J> 1-3 innings. The lanky curve and fast ball fllnger figures that his war experiences in a "hot Ihealer" gave him the perfect temperament for his Job of saving other fellows' games. After being under gunfire, the rattle of base hits isn't likely to be upsetting, } le reasons—particularly .when the enemy batters don't get any. Johnson ran his string of score- less Innings to 10 yesterday when he-came In and pitched five frames to beat the Tigers at De- troll, li to 4. He was behind when he entered tile game as u successor lo Jim liagby, but he made up for Ih'at al the plate with two timely doubles. Ills llrsl in Ihe seventh enabled him lo score Ihe tying run mid In the eighth he drove In the deciding tallies. The Tigers look ,1 4 to 0 lead In the first two Innings when the Red Sox made four errors. George Metkovlch got one of the '.allies back with a homer In the Ihh'd off ( Vlrgll Trucks, who was driven to cover when Boston mndc four straight singles in a two run fifth. The Red Sox Increased their lead to six full games when Bob'feller of Cleveland topped the Yankees, 1 to 2 on a five-hit Job. lit was his (iisl aPlwarancc against Ne.v York since h e pitched a no-hit, no- run isamt 1 at Yankee stadium, April 30. lie pitched a game for four and two thirds Innings until III Die-key tagged him for a clean Ingle in the fifth.

A walk to Charley Keller olloucd by singles by Joe Gordon ml Joe DiMaggio gave New York ,s other run. The Indians made WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 1946 1 open.
