The triumphs melted the front-running margin of the idle Cleveland Indians to a game and a half. The Red Sox and Yanks, tied for second place, have two games left to play and the Indians three.

As of TODAY Buc Rookie Unknoivingly Aids Tribe's Flag Drive BY LYALL SMITH K1 Attendance ONLY ONE EGG FOR PLAYERS' OWN GOOD Lions Pinching Pennies? Not So, Says Bo Hits Record 1,743,035 Groth, Wakefield Pace Bengal Attack BY LYALL SMITH Free Press Sport Editor Baseball bowed out of Detroit for the season on a high note as the Tigers spanked the St. Louis Browns, 7 to 2, behind the steady seven-hit hurline of BY BOB LATSHAW Coach Bo McMillin denied charges that "penny pinching" by the Detroit Lion management was to blame for the team's poor showing in the season opener against the Los Angeles Rams. Braven Dyer, veteran sports writer for the Los Angeles Times, wrote in his column, the Sports Parade: "It's almost unbelievable, but true nonetheless that penny pinching had much to do with Detroit's dismal showing ownership took over. "When a boy signs now," McMillin explained, "he is paid a certain amount that covers his services from Aug. 1, or the time he reports to training camp, until the season ends." There was some grumbling among the players when the 56-a-day expense checks for the last week of the training season were presented. They claimed that a deduction of two dollars was made because they didn't have to buy their own dinner on the final day of the week. The Last, Long Mile? A rookie named Eddie Bockman is "winning" the 1948 American League pennant for the Cleveland Indians! Don't look for his name in the line-up. It isn't there. Don't look for him on the Cleveland bench. He isn't there, either. Bockman is a utility infielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League. The story sounds incredible and it is. But it is Gospel truth that a Pittsburgh infielder is making it possible for the Indians to drive for their first A.L. pennant since 1920. Here's the tale: In 1946 young Bockman belonged to the New York Yankees. He worked out with them in spring training and then was optioned to Kansas City for seasoning. Eddie got hot. He hit over .300, slapped out 12 home runs and stole 29 bases in addition to turning in a brilliant defensive job. All this time Bockman was being surveyed with greedy eyes by the Cleveland Indians who were sorely in need of a second baseman to team up with their ever-brilliant Shortstop Lou Boudreau. The Yankees, owner of Bockman, needed pitchers for the 1947 season. They weren't worried about second base since they had George Stirnweiss for that position. Just Tossed in on Deal ON OCT. 19, 1946, the two clubs made a deal. The newspaper headlines proclaimed: "Indians Get Gordon for Allie Reynolds." against the Rams last week. "AFTER SEVEN exhibition games the Lion players had not received one thin dime, nor had they been given any expense money. "It's not a common practice to pay pro players for exhibition games, but most owners fork over a half note after a particularly good win. "On the train trip west the Lions were told they could have one egg and bacon for breakfast, but if they wanted two eggs they would get no bacon. "Small wonder the squad's morale was at its lowest ebb after that 44-7 pasting. "Bo McMillin may have an awful time getting them back on the beam." Rookie Southpaw Ted Gray. "As far as the penny pinching concerned, let's look at the record," Bo Baid. "The Super Chief is an extra-fare train and the meals on it are wonderful. The matter of the breakfasts had nothing to do with saving money. We ordered the meals with an eye on keeping the players from stuffing themselves when they were going to be inactive because of the trip. "It appears that some of the boys talked to newspaper men out on the coast. We have made some changes, but the players were all notified of those changes when they were signed." INCLUDED in the changes was a matter of $25-a-week expense money allowed by Fred Mandel last season. That item was abolished when the new The victory was Gray's sixth against two defeats and was fash ioned before a p-athor- XX ing of 2,622 fans who boosted home attendance to 1.743,035, an all-time hish for this citv and major league record for a second- aivision ciud.

That was more 1 i' ft a than enough to give Gray his victory. It boosted the Bengals to X1 McMILLIN labeled the report 83 ridiculous. a season mark of 11 triumphs against 11 defeats in 1948 with the sixth-place Brownies. if s- i I "base's Rookie Johnny Groth and Dick Wakefield were the biggest guns for the Tigers. Wakefield boomed a long triple off the center-field fence in the sixth and then came up with a great leaping catch in the ninth inning to rob Pinch-hitter Andy Anderson of an extra-base hit. Groth contributed a double and In the third paragraph it was mentioned that a rookie named Eddie Bockman also had been tossed into the deal by the Yanks. Truth of the deal is that Bockman was the key figure not Joe Gordon, the veteran Yankee infielder. Joe had come out of a three-year hitch in the service to have' a terrible season in '46. He hit only .210, drove in only 47 runs and scored but 35. "We'll trade you Pitcher Reynolds for Gordon but only if you throw in Bockman," the Indians insisted. "Otherwise, the whole thing is off." The deal was made that way. Because of his experience, Gordon was given first Illinois Jury Probes 2nd Ring Fatality Kid Dinamita Succumbs After Bout ivith Port Huron Battler CHICAGO OP) Professional boxing in Chicago had claimed its second ife in seven months with the fatal encounter of Kid Dinamita, a lad from Santo Domingo, in the Chicago Stadium Wednesday night on his 22nd birthday.

LOUIS iX) Harry Brecheen chalked up his 20th victory of the season when he pitched the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-1 decision over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the night section of a day-night double-header.

FIRST CAMS a single to the Bengal attack. He also made a nifty play in the fourth inning when he caught a low line-drive on the dead run and then made a perfect peg to the plate to nip speedy Bobby Dillinger who tried to score from third after the catch.

Bockman was used sparingly but the Indians still were strong on him. Last winter the Pittsburgh Pirates came to Cleveland on a buying expedition. The Bucs needed a good infielder. Bucs Took Eddie to Their Sorrow "WELL," SAID the Indian front office "we have two players that would help you. We'll sell you either Bockman or Ken Keltner.
