Foytack fired a three-hitter at New York yesterday as the Tigers coasted to a 4-0 victory over the i Yankees. It was probably the best pitching performance of Foytack's major league career. He struck out seven and walked only two (Mickey Mantle each time) to gain his 10th triumph of the year against as many losses.

On New York's last visit to Detroit. Stengel was asked which Tiger hurler he would like to have on his New York staff. He surprised everyone by selecting Foytack and ignoring both Frank Lary and Don Mossi, both of i whom have conquered the Yankees five times this season.
