BOSTON HOLDS SPOTLIGHT OF 1935 CAMPAIGN Red Sox Hang Up Second Straight Win Over , Yankees (By The Associated Press) BY HUGH S. FULLERTON, JR Boston, the center of baseball interest during the winter, appar ently has no intention of relin quishing the spotlight now that the 1935 season is under way.

Bishop Ties Score Tangling in another mound duel, the Red hose won 4 to 3 in the tenth inning. They had escaped by the slim margin of a ninth-inning homer by Max Bishop. With Charley Ruffing hurling great ball, the Yanks took the lead when they solved Gordon Rhodes' delivery in the seventh, Bishop socked his homer behind a pinch single by Roy Johnson in the ninth to tie the count, 2-2. Another pinch hitter, old Bing Miller, took over the job in the tenth and drove in the winning runs after a walk and an error by Lou Gehrig had put runners on second and third. Gehrig did his best to atone for the misplay in the last of the tenth, when he belted a homer, but the bases were empty.

Jimmie Foxx produced the only Philadelphia runs with an eighth-inning homer. Champions Defeated Before a crowd of 24,000 the champion Detroit Tigers lost their first game to the rebuilt Chicago White Sox, 7 to 6. Zeke Bonura smacked two doubles and a single. The Cincinnati Reds, who lost their opener, gave the Pirates a taste of their own medicine by moving on to Pittsburgh and taking a 7 to 4 decision before 10,-000 opening day fans. Paul Derringer was hit freely but ineffectively.-: t ' " V:,'. ' Cold weather stopped the New York-Boston, Brooklyn-Philadelphia and St. Louis-Chicago contests in the National league.
