The peerless playing pilot of the world champion Cleveland Indians Is burdened by \ problem emanating from a most unexpected source —the Tribe's vauntc ' pitching staff. A month ago If someone had tried to tell Uoudrcau that hb> mound staff would givi him his biggest headache, Lou would have ordered the guy sent to a psychopathic ward. Bill listen to Lou now. "I know we're not hitting a lick." Boudreau said ticforc last night's 4-3 loss to the New York Yankees. "But. that doesn't worry me half as much as my pitching. "Every one ol my big four—Bob Feller, Boh Lemon, Gene Bcardcn and Steve Groniek—has been laid up by Injuries. I haven't gotten a complete giitr.c from any of them for nearly two weeks. What's worse. I don't know when any of them will be his old self ngaln. Not one Is in good shape right now." Beiirdcn, who hns been suffering from a pulled leg muscle, lasted seven innings and was clipped for 10 hits last night as the Yankees defeated the Indians 4-3.
