PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)" COURIER NEWS '"*" THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 10-16 Boston Players Start Hitting American League Leaders Wind Up Tough Road Trip. NEW YORK, June 27. (UP) — Ju the next to the last inning of a bad road trip, Ihc Red Sox sliwfc Ihe shackles from their bats and scored more runs than h\. any oi their 13 previous games, then headed home today In triumph lor Fenway Park, the most bcnulliul spot on earth ns far ns .they ore concerned. " It might have been the "short course" in hilling that the Tigers gave them In scoring 15 runs hi the first two innings as they won Ihe opening game of n double licatl- er, 10 to 2, that suddenly awakened the Sox. The fact that they were racing a double defeat lor the first tim'i lids year also might have been a factor. But the besl guess Is thai they were looking forward to opening a home stand at Boslon against the Washington Senators Friday. Whatever was the incentive 11 worked to perfection-because the Hcci Sox rolled across seven runs nn<I \Vpn, 0 to 3, giving Dave llioo) Ferris his llth victory at n time when he faced his fourth straight defeat. . Despite the opening game loss to Detroit in which they played (hen worst baseball of the year as even the weak-hilling Hal Ncwhuusci slugged out a ihrec-riui homer, Ihc Red Sox didn't give np. Newhouscr had no rtffficulty I" annexing his 13th \vln ngalnsl three losses, striking out 11 ba Ferris, though lie Bave up nine lills was effeclive afler Ihc third innlni, of the second game, holding Octroi' scoreless In the last six Iniincs. The battle for. home rim honors vyas a standoff, Hank Grecubeitj and Tcci Williams each getting two III the double bill to bring their, totals for the season to If! each. , The Red Sox. who never made more than six runs in any of their other games on the western junket, finished «'lth six victories :uid eight losses. They are seven games ahead of the runner-up Yankees, whereas tliey led by 10 Games when I hey left Boston, June 12. Til* Yankees wound up a more successful trip with eight victories, winning the finale by the appropriate score of 8 to 4. An error produced the winning run in a 16-inning battle nt, Chicago when relief pitcher Sid Hudson came home to give Washing;' 1 ]] a 4 to 3 victory on the muff of an easy roller bv While Sox third tasemnn Boh Kennedy, Hudson, wh" won his firth game, hart singled and gone to third on n single by Buddy Lewis. The error nullified seven innings of scoreless relict pitchini; by Frank Pwplsh. The Drowns took advantage o' Philadelphia errors and homers by diet Laabs and Wall Judnich to beat the Athletics, 11 to 4 at St. Louis. Six unearned runs in the first four innings clinched tlic victory. Tlie Cardinals snapped the Phils 1 flve-Ramc whirling streak at Philadelphia behind the six-hit pitching of Murry-Dickson, who went the route for ths (bird straight time to win',-; 4 to l.^A.hyo^rurL; homer by."
