Most of the crowd knew that Pinky was in a hitting streak. He was playing third base for the Boston Red Sox against the team he'* an important member of this scti- son. That single came in the sixth inning of the Kccond game at a, doublohuadi.T for his third safety ut the garni;. But few of the fans knew just what that single meant until the park announcer .cleared his throat iind told them that that single was Pinky's llth straight. hit. They stood silent in amazement first and then cheered as the announcer went on. He told them that those 111 straight hits tied an IS-year-old record. Tho great Tris Speaker set the mark in 1320— and none of the famous sluggers sinr.o had been able to touch it until Pinky rapped out that single. Higgins opened his ytrcak whilo the Red Sox played a doubleheail- or at Chicago. He punched uuu a single in thr.- ninth inning. In the. second game—with Bill Dietrich on the'mound for the White Sox--. slapped out a single, a double, and another single. When he came up for his last'turn at bat he WHS purpose.'y walked.

Detroit started out to keep the driving pace they have set for themselves by downing the Washington Senators in the first game of their doublcheader. But ,thc Nats came back in a vengeful mood to take tho second, 9 to 2. Rufe Gentry went tho route for Detroit in the first game and wa.s credited with the win. .Dixxy Trout, Jake Moo'.y, Boom Boom Beck, amd Keb Eaton all had a hand in tho hurling of the second game but failed to holt the Nut tide. At St. Louis Jack Kramer pitched his 15th victory of the season while yielding eight scattered hits to the New Yorkers in the opener. The second game turned into a pitching duel between No!s Potter and HankBorowy. Borowy pitched two- hit ball while Potter yielded six— but one loac run by Don Gutter- id the game for St. Both Teams Expect Him To Play With Them; Time Alcne WiU Tell Dennis O'KEEFE Sophie TUCKER with W.

Ihing of it—neither did anyone else. Hundreds of ballplayers had collected four straight -base hits. Tho Sox and Tigers opened with a doubloheader, and the Tigci's led with crafty Tommy Bridges in Uie llrst game. Tommy was one of the most skillful curve-ball pitchers in the game. Jiut he couldn't stop Pinky Pliggins that day. Pinky drew a walk in his first. trip to the plate. And then he opened up on bridges. Pinky doubled in tho fourth, singled in the sixth, singled in the eighth, and singled onci- more in the ninth. ICiglit straight hits—eight in a row for Pinky as he headed into the socond time. Roxio Lawson came to the mound to pitch the second game for Detroit. Pinky steppe'd up in tho second inning and bangod out another single—number nine. Then in the third he collected the tenth—and in the sixth game the blow that tied Tris Speaker's iS-ycar-old record. Whon Connie Mack heard , of Pinky's work that day the old master of the Philadelphia Athletics smiled. Higgins was Connie's boy when lu> came up to the majors. Hi; had been' a football and hascb.'ill star at the University of Texas, and more than ten major league clubs wanted Pinky. But Pinky signed with the A's for an father's expenses in a campaign unusal sort of bonus. They paid his for shnrirf— which he lost. Pin ivy cam i) to the A's in 1033 and stayed there until he went to Boston in .1037. But on that afternoon in 133S Pinky Higgins had one more chance.. He rame to bat hi the eighth and faced Lawson • again. The pressure was heavy—another hit. would mean a new record. Lawson missed the plate with his first two pitches. Ho had to make the next one good if he didn't want to get into trouble. So Roxie .set himself to throw to Pinkv's weakness—a curve ball, Tho Philadelphia Athletics and the Cleveland Indians tangled in a double bill at Cleveland that ended with the ylthletics taking Ihe opener •! to 2, and tho sucond being called by darkness. | TliL- Tribe scored one lone tally i in the second game while tho Ath- j letics did likewise to lio the score i when the game wits called. Jn a ton-inning night frame at Chicago tho White Sox shaded the Boston Red Sox •; to 3 on the four-hit pitching or" Thornton Lx:e. Clem Dreisoword pitched live-hit ball, but took his fourth loss in six staris. In the National league the St. Louis Cardinals dropped a close pno to the .New York Giants 3 to 2. The Giant victory ended their losing streak at four. The Boston Braves trounced iho Chicago Cubs r> 10 1 in a .single game at Boston, while in Philadol phia tho Phillies shut, out the Pittsburgh Pirates 3 to 0 on the hurling of Ken Raffensberg-cr.
