UP) Knocking Tom Bridges out of the box and continuing the attack on three other pitchers, the Athletics battered Detroit into submission 13 to 11 today. The Mackmen belted out 10 hits, including a home run by Eric McNair and two from the bat of Jimmy Foxx. The letter' second wat for the circuit, coming with two on base in the eighth Inning, wound i . a four-run rally that decided the game. The two blows put Foxx's tring of homers for the season at 20. The Tigers piled up a 8 to 3 load in the first four innings only to lose It in the fifth in a five-run rally by the As. Luke Hamlin had succeeded Bridges by this time and In turn was lifted 'or a pinch hitter. Vic Frasler next took the mound and was clubbed for singles by Cramer and Johnson. Detroit came back In the ilnth with a run, tallied when Cascarella. third Mack pitcher, walked two with one out and was slapped for a single by Pete Fox, This gave Mickey Cochrane and Goose Ooslln an opportunity to salvage the game, but both popped to the outfield. Foxx's first homer came in the last of the seventh with none on base. Altogether It was a rough afternoon the Athletics gave their old Mnskman and pal. Cochrane. Not only did they give his pennant strlv-ers a beating after the Tigers had already counted the game as won, : but doing it as the Yanks were win- j ning dropped them back Into second ; place Box score: ivttoit ab r h e Philadelphia ab r h e I'nx rf 6 13 0!

Little And Goodman Seek Trans-Mississippi Title Sweat On Specs Helps Broaca's Hurling Control When In Tight Spot, Yank Takes Time Out To Wipe EyeglaMc. NKW YORK .June 0 ijv H Isn't sniokp that gels m Johnuv Hrnaras eyes ait the, young YalrnMan baffles opposing bat.Miu-n tor the Ynansees. It's the perspiration thai get on his spectacles, admits the methodical youngster, that helps him taks hts time and thus retain his sensational effectiveness. B roars, who in his first two weeks with the Yanks hurled a three-hit and a one-hit game, savi the necessity for pausing to pull out a handkerchief and wipe the steamed-up glasses is Jtmt the thing he neeilt to kep him from working too fast And the fit. Louts Hrowns are forced to agree with him. In his third big league start. Just 12 days off the Yale campus, Johnny -topped tho Hrowns with one hit while registering 10 strikeouts, ft was the first time Rogers Hornsby's surprising elub had been checked without at least one run litis seitson. A nKciHiraglng Debut The chunky Lithuanian lad's debut in a Yankee uniform. Just two hours after he arrived from New Haven on June 3. was discouraging. The Yanks gave him a four-run lead In the first, hut wtldnens and three errors behind him caused him to lose that advantage within two Innings and he was promptly yanked out of lii ere, But three days later Manager Joe McCarthy gnvn him another chance. In an exhibition game atinlnst a New Haven Independent team. In these more or less fmnlMar surroundings Johnny came through with a five-hit shut-out Job. His confidence restored, he atartrd another league gume for the Yankees four days Inter. Serious, nervous hut methodical, he held the Philadelphia. Athletics the same tram which had ruined bis firat start lo three hit. Hut four costly haes on balls, along with n homo run hy Hob Johnson, coet him that game, Walks First Twn Men Then came the one-hit triumph over Mm Browns, and even It was not. without lis tribulations for Johnny. He walked the first two men to face him and Catcher Hill lltekcy glanced significantly toward (he bench. The hu.zer was pimhed U start activity In the bull-pen. Then Johnny remembered the handkerchief. He pulled it out of his hip pocket, polished his specs, and made the next hatter itrotmd into a double play. He fanned the next man for the third nut, and was on his way to a hurling mawterplece. All told, he walked six men but his 10 strikeouts offset that, Uronca mixes sharp curves with blazing speed, and the boys who have hatted against him say he has plenty of "stuff." Wo, putting his proved courage and ths sweat that gets in ma eyes to make him take I) la time Hlong with his wealth of curving talent, the Yankees arn pretty suro they've got that additlonnl starting pitcher they've been seeking since the collapse of several of their veterans as dependable starters.
