DETROIT TAKES TWO FROM BOSTON, ADVANCING LEAD TO PULL GAME By GLEN PERKINS United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Sept. 23.—Stop us If you've heard this one before—but it became Increasingly apparent today that the Detroit Tigers might not be atop the American League if it weren't for "Dead Eye" Dick Wa*ke- fleld. Dreadful Dick—dreadful to the American League pitchers—joined the Bengals July 13 when they were in seventh place, eight games off the pace then being set by the Ht. Louis Browns. Since then, Wakefield has convinced Owner Walter Brlggg that the $5^,000 the Tigers paid for him when he was still on the University of Michigan campus was a gilt edged investment. Yesterday Wakcfield was a big factor In the Tigers' double victory over the Boston Red Sox. In the first game he brought them from behind with a grand slam homer In the fifth Inning to give Hufe Gentry more than enough margin for a 7-4 victory. It was one of Wnkefipld's ..two hits and kept his average hover- Ing near the .500 mark for his Inst 60 times at bat. In the nightcap he scored a run that assisted In the Tigers' 8-6 triumph. Walter (Boom •Boom) Beck, who came on in relief in the eighth jnning, started a rally that gave him credit for the triumph.
