Now it's sizzling Detroit that New York has dunked In chill water. Reel fiolfe's Tigers slrode Into the Stadium with seven straight wins and an .002 edge on first place. Unbeaten since they left home, the spirited Detroit club boasted a dazzling road record of 20-3. or .870. This was It. The big test of the cfirly season. If the red. hot Tigers could roll over the Yankees and then knock off Boston, they would take charge of the race. Thuy may do it yet, for It's a three-game scries in New York. Yesterday's 5-4 loss to the Yanks was only the opener. But with Tommy Byrne, an old Tiger killer with n 10-2 lifetime record against Detroit, pitching for New York today, the chrmce.s are not bright. Home run power from the bats of Joe DIMaggio. Phil ntzznta ami Billy Johnson swung the balance of jower in a tight battle between lefty Hal N-whouser and Vic Raschl. Bcrrn's Single Wins Each lime the Tigers scrambled mo thu lead, a zinging Ynnk home run would pull them back. Finally T single won the game. It was a ball hit by Yogi Berra-'to shortstop Johnny Upon that handcuffed the riger Infielder in the seventh. While the Yanks and Timers vrestled through the hottest afternoon of the New York season. Dos,011 piled up a staggering 20-4 score against St. Louis. Sllll very much In the race, the Red Sox blasted 23 hits off Brownie iltching while Joe Dobson rode lotne easily with his seventh win. Little nobby Shantz, 5-foot-7- nch Philadelphia lefthander, pitched the A's first shutout of the year. a 5-0 night victory over Chicago. Washington snapped Its seven- game losing streak, nipping CIcvc- and 5-4 on Johnny Ostrowski's eighth-Inning homer following Irv Noren's single, Brooklyn Back In I.ud Once again Brooklyn took over mdisputed possession of the Na- lonal League lead, whipping Pltts- niigti 9-0, while St. Louis look a bad 10-2 licking from Boston. Both were night games. Don Nett'combe, giant Dodger Negro ace, followed his recent five-hit conquest of St. laalt with f. six-hit jlanklng of the weary Pirates. Rookie Bill MacDnnald, only Plr- te to win a game since May 23. was shelled out In a five-run eighth ruling. Pittsburgh now has lost five n a row and 14 of its last 15. : '•,. ,. Stan Mnslal joined the other St. x>uls cripples during the loss to Boston's Warren Spahn. Stan suf- ered a cut between two finger* of ils left hand, taking a throw from Al Brnzle. He will be out for R day r two. Rookie Bob Miller, up from Terre Haute, lifted the Philadelphia Phils nto second place — ahead of; St. i* and only a half game behind Brooklyn—with a 4-0 victory over Cincinnati. It was the fourth itralght win for Miller, who scat- ercd seven hits. Folks will have to take the New York Glanls seriously If they con- inne to rait up scores like yes- erday's 13-4 romp over Chicago. Leo Durochnr's Giants have won ve'ln a row and six of seven oh their second western trip. BONUS BEAUTY—The first honus player signed by the Pirates, 21-year-old Dill Macdonald paid off handsomely in his first major lengxic start.
