The Detroit weather is still frosty, but the Bengal bats are showing signs of thawing off. Mr. Manush of the Left Field Meadow was the star at Navin today, igniting a 2nd inning rally off Danforth, doubling in the go-ahead tally in the 3rd after Cobb was tossed out stealing and almost eviscerated the rally, then singled in another in a rambunctious 6th, when the Tigers scored four and tucked the game to sleep.
Earl Whitehill won his second game with fine slab-work, as the St. Louicians dropped to a 1-6 record, and are even worse than Boston now. It will be Wingard against our Ed Wells in tomorrow's finale at the field, before the boys pack their things for a quick train ride to Cleveland. This reporter may even drive his Model T, if reports of sunny skies for the week are indeed true.
STL 001 100 100 — 3 11 2
DET 012 004 00x — 7 11 2
Other American League games:
YANKEES 9-10-0, SENATORS 0-9-2
By all accounts, a dreadful affair for the Washingtonians, as Mogridge is drubbed for the second straight time and the Nats manage to score nothing off Joe Bush despite knocking one less hit the New Yorkers. The Bambino contributed two doubles to the Yanks' first place cause, as they bunched their runs with two in the 2nd, three in the 5th and four more in the 8th.
RED SOX 2-9-0, ATHLETICS 1-7-0
Yowsa! The Bostons have notched two straight victories, this time on a sterling effort from Howard Ehmke. Rommel also pitched well but after an Athletics run in the first inning on a Simmons double play grounder, Philadelphia could no nothing more.
INDIANS 5-13-0, WHITE SOX 3-8-1
And make that two straight defeats for Chicago, who might have lost their leprachaunish ways already. Six Cleveland doubles did in Red Faber, as Chick Fewster played in the injured Riggs Stephenson's stead and collected three hits including the one that decided the game.
