The Red Sox drove Ruffing, the league's leading pitcher in victories with 15. out of the box, although they made only four hits off him. .Year Free-for-All Manager Joe Cronin of the locals and Alvin Jakey Powell of the invaders nearly precipitated a free-for-all riot when they came close to exchanging blows as Cronin took exception to Powells tactics in charging into Third Baseman Mike Higgins as the latter tagged Powell out on a run-down play in the 10th inning. Relief Pitchers Fordham Johnny Murphy, for the Yanks, and Strong Boy Jack Wilson, who relieved the venerable Grove for the Sox w-hen Ol Mose yielded. to a pinch hitter in the ninth, waged a four-inning scoreless overtime duel clogged with all sorts of tense situations, before the end came in the 14th as the New Yorkers pushed across four runs to Bostons one. When the end came, James Emory Foxx was catching (attention, Mr Ripley) and McNair was playing first base for the Red Sox as the result of Gene Desautels being chased by Umpire Lou Kolls over a protest on a play at home plate, Desautels making the fifth Red Sox who has been banished by that same umpire this season. Teeming With Drama Also, Ol Blubber Malone, who sat in the press box through most of the game and who actually started and finished the second game, was pitching for the Yankees when Chapman hit a fierce line drive straight into Fowell s hands, with Higgins on first base, for the final out in this longest game of the present season here and the most hectic of all seasons. Those were only the highlights. Almost every other play was teeming with drama. That the Yankees should have won 3-2 over the regulation route had the game been played flawlessly didnt mean anything to the rabid, capacity gathering. Their only disappointment was in the ultimate loss of the decision by the Sox. Here is how that happened: PoirelVs Third Double The rambunctious Powell opened the 14th for the Yankees with his third double and fourth hit of the name, a mean dribbling bounder over second that scooted through both Cronin and McNair. Lazzeri sacrificed him to third. Freshman Tom Henrich was inserted to hit ior Hoag and was passed. Marse Joe McCarthy of the champions shot the works. He sent up George Twinkletoes Selkirk, who has been inactive for almost two months with a shoulder injury, to hit for Murphy. Selkirk responded with a humpbacked single into left centre that scored Powell and put Henrich on second. Crosetti Fans Frankie Crosetti fanned for the fourth straight time, to make the second out, but Dartmouth Rro Rolfe lifted a fly into short right. Chapman started backward, and then in trying to Tetrace his steps, slipped and fell. The ball , for two bases. Henrich and Selkirk came racing over the plate. Hfn rich made it easily, but Selkirk had to hit the dirt to beat Chapmans hurried throw. As Umpire Kolls failed to make his decision clear, both Desautels and Selkirk leaped at the arbiter. Kolls finally made it clear that he had ruled Selkirk safe, and the Yankees adjourned merrily to the bench. But Desautels and Skee Melillo, who had scored the tieing , run as a pinch runner for the Sox, led the local charge on Kolls. When the latter waved both of them out of the game, Cronin took up the cudgels. He wound up a five-minute tirade by bouncing the ball off home plate and miles into the air. After this disconcerting interlude, it was no wonder the Sox pilot allowed DiMaggios hot grounder to go right through him, to score Rolfe with the final Yankee run. Lost Many Chances Had the Sox been only two runs behind as they would have been had Selkirk been declared out, they might have done something in their half. But four down, they had little taste for their task and after a Foxx double and Higgins single had accounted for one run against freshman Frank Makosky, McCarthy hastily summoned old reliable Malone to quell McNair and Chapman and end the game. The story of the hat-hoister would not be complete without reporting that the Sox had more chances than the Yankees to put the deciding marker across in the overtime sessions leading up to the finis. However, with the vital tallies in scoring position, Cronin twice and Chapman once were unable to deliver. Second Game Big Buck Newsom started the second game on the mound for the Sox at exactly 5:35. Yesterday was Bucks 29th birthday. He has never lost a game on his birthday. He still hasn't, but it wasn t his fault Buck failed to last an inning.

Lazzeri, co-mingled with a stolen base by the former, accounted for four runs and Newsoms exit. Fritz Ostermueller replaced Buck and until the showdown sixth pitched invincible ball. Meanwhile, the Sox pecked away at Malone until they tied the score at 4-all in the fourth. Singles by Mills and Higgins, sandwiched around an error by Rolfe, gave the locals a run in the first. Cramers bingle, a walk to Cronin and Foxx safety added another in the third. Red Sox Tie It The knot-making markers in the fourth were manufactured out of a walk to Chappie, Bergs single to center, Ostie's sacrifice, a safety to right by Mills and a fielders choice. For all of the six Yankee markers in the sixth, Ostermueller could have gotten out of the inning with good fielding on his own pait. The pestiferous Powell led off the inning with an infield hit. Lazzeri dropped out of his patemed hit-and-run safeties into right center, putting Powell on third. Joe Glenn hit one back to Osties right, Ostie fumbled the ball, picked it up and threw wildly to the plate. Had Der Fritz thrown accurately Powell would have been nailed and Malones subsequent grounder to Foxx would have been a perfect double play setup for the outs. But after Ol Blub had been retired, Crosetti, who had fanned five times all day, broke up the ball game with a double to left center. Rolfe followed with a triple to right and Tommy Thomas replaced Ostie. Der Mag popped up, but Tommy hit Gehrig in the ribs with a pitch. Henrich dropped a single into short right and Powell beat out his second infield hit. scoring Gehrig with the 10th run. DIAMOND DOTS The pair of victories ran the Yankee string to 10 straight and widened their lead over the Red Sox to 1114 games, making todays double-header strictly anticlimactic unless it will be to endanger the half-game hold on second place the Sox now only have over the White Sox. . . .

ONLY 28 LADS FELT PROMISING BY BEES Group Selected From 1100 Who Attended School Only 28 youths of Ifre aspiring hundreds that made their bid for fame in professional baseball ranks managed to show enough playing technique to favorably impress directors of the Bees Baseball School, according to a final listing yesterday of the schools most promising ball players. More than 1100 ambitious boys from all over New England answered Pres Bob Quinns invitation to show their prowess over a period of seven days at the National League Park. Players who made the list have been asked to return next year for further tryouts, and will not be lost sight of by Quinn and his faculty. Some of the prospects who live within easy reach of Boston will appear from time to time at Jack Onslows morning workouts, while those who reside some miles away will plan to attend only occasionally. No outstanding prospect has been uncovered from the large number of schoolboys and sandlotters that so faithfully attended the workouts, though a good number of them showed qualities in some departments of the game.

WHO S7AveP e' AS A SP6CfA7URv,FlNSN6' I , .UP AS Te WNK Beating That Clock Just Gave Yanks Little More Time i Five Clubs Will Now Forget That Word Crucial and Turn to Crusher By HY HURWITZ The only thing the Red Sox beat at Fenway Park yesterday was the clock. They started the game 10 minutes ahead of time. As they learned later, it would have been best if they hadnt started at alL , ... When it was all over I mean when they picked up the loose ends of the Red Sox and had batted out the Yankee totals on the Fenway Park adding machine the Sox all said We shouldve stood in bed. ... N By unanimous vote of the Detroit Tigers, Cleveland Indians. Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox, they are not going to call any series with the Yankees crucial. Hereafter, they will be termed crushers. The Yanks have now crushed the Tigers, Indians and the two hosiery clubs in what had been falsely labeled crucial series. Somebody called Joe DiMaggios attention to the fact that Fenway Park was the only American League park he hadnt made a homer in. Joe is not the kind of guy who wastes time. He hit the first pitch served to him to complete the rounds. Before the day passed into history and the Red Sox passed out, the Yankees equalled their consecutive game mark under Joe McCarthy by taking 10 straight. DiMaggio also added two more games to the 17-game hitting streak he came here with. Tom Sopwith Knows Tom Yawkey now must know how Tom Sopwith felt after the Ranger had swept up the Endeavour II. In the ninth inning of the first game, Tony Lazzeri raised the protest flag. With Skee Melillo and Prime DAUesandro on base, Tony hoisted his glove to shield nis eyes when he started out for Doc Cramers soft pop. It looked like he was protesting the Red Sox use of Italians, on whom the Yankees seem to have first claim. Lazzeri was so wrapped up in the protest that he lost the ball and the Sox tied the game. Mr Jake Zioncheck Powell, the Yankee screw-ball, almost started a free-for-all. He had been trapped off third and before he was erased he had half-bowled Desautels over and gave Higgins quite a jolt. Pinky gave Jake a nawsty stare but Cronin rushed over from shortstop and threatened to poke Powell on the proboscis. JUST BEFORE Jimmie Foxx, left, and Joe DiMaggio, the leading home run makers of the major league, are here shown crossing their favorite swatting weapons just before going out to battle ves- A RIOT IN T)t lOTW pUNNtNCr , V 6AV& VCiAWnS AMtT6AU GROWN NEARLY 57APTED CHA NcSTOVO A RIOTMTHCIOTW' WHlGH LEfTTHgJOX PLENTY OF CHAJ Without a tow From out of the Yankee dugout, George Twinkletoes Selkirk raced out leading a mob of Yankees. It looked like a swell riot. Police Commissioner Joe Timilty started out of the press box to ring in a riot call. But cool heads prevented any fist-fighting and the game returned to normal until the 14th. Close Decision It was in the 14th that the Yankees, who came here to bury the Red Sox pennant aspirations, finally performed their mission. But before they did there was no end of excitement. The Yankees had two ryns home when Selkirk came sliding in for a third. It was a close play. Gene Desautels made a swell dive for Twinkletoes. Most people thought that he had tagged Selkirk out. But that didnt count. Umpire Lou Kolls called him safe. This started another debate at the end of which Desautels was ejected by Kolls because Gene accused Lou of being blind, or words to that effect. Lou bounced Desautels hastily and should have thought a second time. The Red Sox were left without a catcher as Berg had been bumped off by Hoag earlier in the game. As a result, Jimmy Foxx had to don the chest protector and shin pads. It was the end of the Red Sox. They made a feeble attempt in the second game, overcoming a four-run deficit, but it seemed as if the Yanks were doing a Gypsy Rose Lee teaser. Shortly after the game was tied, the Yanks teed off once again for a half dozen runs to wrap up the second game and wdth it their second straight American League pennant. Pressure Removed One good thing about yesterdays debacle was that it will relieve the pressuce on ticket demands, which were the heaviest locally since the Golden Gloves finals at the Garden last Winter. For a while it seemed as If the weather was favoring the Sox. The sun shone brightly when Lazzeri lost Cramers popup to tie the first game in the ninth. It began to rain and grow dark as the Sox came to bat in the 10th and it looked as if the sun had disappeared in time to save the Sox. But, like the Yankees, the sun was only teasing. The only salvation for the Red Sox was that Buck Newsom kept his record of never losing on his birth- THE ROUT PLENTY catcher- ' wa g&ing- seuRiG -raoRTtte csimp out or -me 2p 6AMe IN THC y. 1ST inning- MAtte it ? wmm day. Buck was 29 yesterday and in a few thousand choice words New-some told all listeners that nobody can beat him on his birthday. Buck retired four runs behind, but the Sox tied it up after he left to save him. As the football people often say, We were just building character this season, anyway. Only 1114 games behind. Only 57 more game to play. The 1938 season will start in April. CLEVELAND TAKES TWO GAMES FROM BROWNS CLEVELAND, Aug 11 (A P) Timely clouting produced a double victory for Cleveland today over the St Louis Browns, Bob Feller taking the opener, 5 to 2, and Denny Galehouse the second, 7 to 2. Returning to League Park after a disastrous Eastern invasion, the Indians spoiled the 'tart of the Browns road trip under Jim Bot-tomleys management, aided by home runs by Lyn Lary and Billy Sullivan. Feller struck out six and allowed seven hits in the first game as he registered his third victory of the season. Lary opened with a homer and the Tribe batted over three more tallies fn the first inning to stake Feller to a substantial lead over Julio Bonetti. In the nightcap. Billy Sullivans sixth-inning circuit blow with two on base sewed things up for Gale-house, the Doylestown, O, boy who was honored by home town fans before the game. Elon Hogsett was the victim.

Luck is likely to upset percentages. Frank Strafaci is beating his way to the United States amateur , golf championship at Portland, Ore. Thats the hard way to beat the field. The track on which-Archie San Romani ran the mile in Stockholm in 4:08.4 after a sop at 1500 meters is 500 meters to the lap. That fact may have had an influence in confusing him. Tyrus Raymond Cobb Jr is a medical student at the University of Georgia and is earning his way through college as the coach of the swimming team. Baseball does not seem to run in. the Cobb family. There is some expectation that Frank Dobson Jr will take Monk Meyers place in the backfield for West Point this Fall. He is a son of Frank Dobson, the University of Maryland coach. Greyhound didnt touch Peter Mannings record at Goshen, but that 57 seconds for the last half was a marvelous performance, the best ever, old timers aver. Frankie Parker, the Davis Cup player, apparently has given up the idea of going to college and is looking for a job instead. Naturally he would like to keep his hand in ten nis. and the combination of work and play is not the easiest to attain. There were other good records made in the dual meet between Great Britain and France in Paris July 24 besides Syd Woodersons 3:51 for 1500 meters. Bill Roberts won the 400 meters for Britain in 47.5, the fastest performance in Europe this season. Peter Ward ran 5000 meters in 14m 48.2s. Great Britain won the meet and, it is significant, on points, 66 to 54.- Frank .Handley beat Arthur Collyer by two yards in the 800 in 1:52.5. France won most of the field events. There were some excellent performances in the German national championships in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin the last week in July. For instance, Rudolf Harbig displaced Otto Peltzers German record by running the 800 meters in lm 50.9s. Frederick Schaumberg. the 31-year-old policeman, ran 1500 meters in 3m 54.4s, and Luz Long cleared 25ft 3J8in in the broad jump. Karl Hein threw the hammer 179ft Oliin, with Blask only two inches behind him. Woelike put the shot 51 feet 10?8 inches and Schroeder threw the discus 165 feet 6 inches. Ziebe cleared 48 feet 11 inches in the hop, step and jump. Weinkoetz cleared 6 feet -4 inches in the high jump and Laksa threw the javelin 211 feet 10 inches. Hoellings 53.3 for the 400-meter hurdles was fast. Syd Wooderson, who beat Jack Lovelock several times, is to attempt to break his 4m 10.8s record for the mile at New Malden, Eng, on Aug 28. A special handicap will be arranged to extend him, CARDINALS WIN IN ' NINTH FROM THE REDS ST LOUIS, Aug 11 (A P) Three straight hits in the ninth inning, including a single by pitcher Si Johnson, gave the St Louis Cardinals the winning run today in a second straight 3-to-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Alex Kampouris hit a home run with Ernie Lombardi on base in the second inning, but otherwise Johnson held the Reds scoreless, although he allowed 10 hits. A1 Hollingsworth pitched the last of the ninth, after Ray Davis had been removed for a pinch hitter. Johnson singled and went to third on Terry Moores double, Leo Du-rocher ran for the pitcher and scored the winning run on Stuart Martins single. Pepper Martin injured his right knee as he slid into third base on his triple to start the fourth inning. After first aid was administered, he limped home on Don Gutteridges long fly and then retired from the game, his place in rightfield being taken by Stan Bordagaray. Examination by Dr Robert Hyland, club physician, disclosed Martin suffered a torn ligament in his knee and probably will be out of the lineup indefinitely.
