fAUE SIX BIATJJEVILLE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS Yanks Face Slim Pennant Hopes Boston Club's Lead Virtually Assures - Team on Pennant NEW. YORK. July 20. <UP> — Time bcgnn to run out on the New York Yankees today, niul the impersonal figures In the standings column showed that the Boston Rcxl Sox, whose victory yesterday over Chicago was their 13th In 15 games, can lose (he pennant only complete collapse. Boston now leads by UK games with 67 yet on the Bosox schedule. The Yanfes have 68 games. If the £ox continue at their present rate it «111 be a breeze, of course, but . ., (hey nuiy crack, although there is 1 no reason to suspect such disaster. But suppose they win only half their remaining games, and ended with 99 games won.' New York, lo tie, would have to win 48 of OS games—a pace of .706. Their present percentage Is .593. Manager Bill Dickey, wlio is paid 10 think good of his club, may have hopes of a -700 pace, but his athletes have shown no inclination so far for such lilgli geur. Boston's a lo 2 victory yesterday carried important implications concerning Ihe Red Sox staying power. Bill Zubtr pitched a four-hitter to win, Ills third triumph since coining to Boston Irom the Yanks. Me hasn't yet been associated fcilh a loss for Boston, and appears to be a dependable fourth Etarter lo so with Dave Perriss. Mickey Harris and Tex Hughson. His first win was a thrcc-!iillci over Cleveland, then he started a marathon game which Boston finally won from Philadelphia, next was au eight-hit victory over Cleveland, although he needed eighth-inning help from Fcrrtss, then yesterday's lom-hiltcr. The fuming White Sox, goaded by (heir fourth straight loss to Boston, look it out on Umpire Red Jones, who .thereupon look the White Sox out—period. Fourteen Chicagoans were banished Irom (he bench for their pointed comments on Jones' vision and Ju<!g- nient. The Yankees and SI. Louis Bruins were Idle. Hal Ncfthouser, the host lefly kuseball, got disrespectful tietit- Inciil, for five innings from Washington in a- night game, hut Newhouser had the last laugh as his Detroit Tigers made up a five-run deficit and then won, 10 to 5. Hank Gveenberg hit u bases-loaded triple and Birdie Tcbbetts Batted In lour Detroit runs with Iwo hits. It was Hal's 18th win against three losses. Pat Secrcy, the Cleveland o\it- lieUKr \\l\o is built like Babe Ruth nnd occasionally hits like him. Nashville Vols In Double Win Over Memphis ATLANTA, <3a., July 20.
