So there Is no reason to wc;k:'n on the Tribe now. even If they nre finding It difficult to curve those last few g:\mf-s off Detroit's lead.

Experience May Tvll That could well prove the payoff when the two chilis meet In the final two games Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at Detroit. With what has been happening the paM few yems, It Is only sensible to assume that the flag still will be up for grabs nt that stage. Most of the Indians went through such a dogfight two seasons ago when they wove lorced to lick the Boston Red Sox in a play-olf game at Fenway Park.
