Red Ruffing: of the Yankees had a 3 to 1 lead over the Cubs in the seventh inning of ',he first game. The Cubs opened that inning: with instructions to "make this the big one."

Well, the Cards are still running on their merry way to the National league pennant, and in order to break the record set by the Chicago Cubs in 1906 of JIG games won in the 1!W game season, they'll have to win 23 of their remaining 37 games. That means they"! have to play ball with .a winning percentage of .75-1, according to our arithmetic— nay, higher mathematics. Whatever the Cards do — whether or not they do set a new record, we don't care a bit nor arc we - worried. After the St. Louis Americans win their pennant-—and at the present rate,- they might n win S3 games—the World the Two out-^-and Ruffing breathed a little -easier. 1 ' ' ' : .' That ddin't last long.

Ruffing took a deep breath and pitched. The Ripper swun'g and' this one looked like a hit. The- oheers ' reached new heights as Hai-tnott .raced for the plate and Collir.'s bounder headed over 'second base—-und then suddenly the noise choked off. ' ' ' Little Frankie Crosetti had picked that ball out of the base-hit class and,'whipped it do\vn to Lou' Geli- rig at first .for tho third out—and that saved the ball;gamc for Ruffing -and the Yankees.
