C., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1934. Tigers, Suffering From Too Much Dean, Find Own Staff in Desperate Plight ♦% A Α ι ■ — DETROIT IS FACING HARD TEST TODAY Hogsett's Showing Indi cates He Would Have Made Good as Starter. BY DfcNMAN THOMPSON, Sport? Editor of The Star. ST. LOUIS, Mo., October 6.—The trouble with the Tigers in this current world series is—the Dean boys. Of course backers oi the Bengals will assure you their failure to win more than one of the first three tilts « due to the fact that they're not hitting. But that road leads right bark (o the first premi.se—the Dean boys. Ii Pilot Frankie Frisch goes through with his overnight selection of Tex Carleton as t..e mound reliance of the Red Birds in the fourth fracas of the set today, no surprise will be occasioned should Detroit again pull abrpast of the National Leaguers even though represented on the hill by so comparatively an inexperienced fresh man as Etdon Auker. In that event, however, the sinister Shadow of the widely renowned fam ily from Oklahoma still will be hover ing over the Michiganders for Dizzy is a sure shot to face em tomorrow and they are yet to see the last of the so-called Daffy one who handed them • 4-to-l setback with such consum mate ease in the first of the three games listed for this city and the third of the seven (or less) scheduled. Young Paul's goal, when he started operations against Mickey Cochrane and his crew before the throng of some 40.000 here yesterday was to keep pace with Jerome who achieved an 8-to-3 verdict in the melee that started the big show in Detroit Wednesday. Did Better Than Dizzy. THE youngster did even better than his big brother, however, for he not only approached to within an inning of a shut-out, but proved his mettle by hurling under a stress few world series pitchers have known. In only two rounds were the bases kept entirely clear of Tigers. In every other session one or more of them decorated the runway, but. aside from the final frame, when White's single and Greenberg's gargantuan triple netted the Bengals their lone tally, they got on to no purpose. All told, 13 of the American Leaguers ■were stranded, which fell short by only one of the all-time left-on-base record established by the Cubs 'way back in 1910, when Connie Mack's upstart Athletics hung it on the minions of the "peerless leader," Frank Leroy Chance. Paul was solved in every one of the first six sessions, but never for more than a hit an inning. In the first, for instance, Gehringer evolved an unsupported single. In the second Goslin singled, advanced a notch when Fothrock fumbled it. and Owen was nicked by a pitched ball, but all to ho purpose. Another Gang; Left. IN THE third a double by Gehringer was sandwiched between passes to Cochrane and Goslin, but they were left, as were Fox, who singled, and Bridges and Cochrane, who drew free tickets in the fourth. Greenberg walked to open the fifth and was singled to third by Rogell, whereupon young Dean put on the pressure by whiffing both Owen and Fox. while in the sixth neither Coch rane nor Gehringer could accomplish anything to supplement White's single. And even after White and Green berg had pierced his armor in the ninth. Dean calmly snuffed the rally by causing no less dangerous a swat ter than Gooee Goslin to pop harm lessly. If the Tigers had been able to run true to the form they displayed in nailing their pennant, during the course of which they topped all big league rivals in flailing. Tommy Bridges might have muddled through, but in the light of what happened he was no match at all for Paul Dean and was permitted to linger far longer than he should Bridges Hit Early. THE Tiger right-hander was nudged for a tally right at the outset, when Martin tripled and scored on a long fly by Rothrock. which made Frisch's subsequent single un necessary. And in the second he yielded an other marker on a long fly by young Dean himself after the bases had been loaded through Collins' single, De lance.v's double and the winging of Orsatti. Bridges then contrived to thwart (he opposition for two frames, but rame a cropper in the fifth, when Martin's double. Rothrock's triple and Frisch's single accounted for two runs before a single hand had been retired. Elon Hogsett, Detroit's sizable south paw, then was rushed into the breach and succeeded In keeping the brakes applied for the remainder of the route; but with P. Dean drilling on in his methodically effective manner, the Tigers' cause already was a lost one. The inevitable second-guessing in dicates that Mickey, the manager, might have done better had he used Hogsett as a starter instead of a re lief man. for. in addition to his four fine frames yesterday. Elon hurled runless ball for the three and one third rounds in finishing what Gen. Crowder started in the opening en gagement at Detroit. STREET BACK OF DUGOUT. ST.

AS DETROIT SINKS Power That Carried Club to Pennant Is Absent Until End of Game. BY BILLY EVANS. Former Umpire and Big League Manager. ST. LOUIS, October 6.—Detroit's vaunted power that carried it to an American League pen nant failed to function until the ninth inning of the world series third game. A single and a triple could produce only one run, and then it was too late. The timely base hits that every Tiger seemed to have in his bat bag during the regular season were again sadly missing. Failure to hit in the pinch cost Detroit the game. Paul Dean pitched that sort of game. Good When Necessary. HE WAS very, very bad in spots, but when a hit would have changed the entire complexion of the game, he would suddenly reform and become very, very good. The Tigers are still tight, so far as the hitting end of the game is con cerned. In the early innings they seemed to have relaxed and were crashing away at any pitch good enough to be called a strike. How ever, when the crisis arrived and Paul Dean faced four such situations in the first five innings, he was always the master. The Tigers are a far better club than they have shown to date. «Copyright 1934. by the North American Newspaper Alliance. Inc.> CARDS TIE A RECORD ST. LOUIS. October 6 </P).—The Cardinals tied one record when they made only three assists behind Paul Dean's pitching yesterday. Joe Medwick, who tied another in the first game with four straight base hits, now has a total of six safeties and needs as many more to tie the series record, shared by Buck Herzog, Joe Jackson, Sam Rice and Pepper Martin.

Delancey, a native of Greensboro, Ν C., has been In organiwd base ball just three rears. Two years ago the wire-haired youngster who hits for terrific distance caught Dean on the St. Louis Cardinal farm at Springfield. Mo., and they won the Western Association pen nant.

Back-Hand Blow by Laskey Gives Foe Fourth Round and Margin of Victory. By the Associated Press. NEW YORK. October β—Your heavyweight champion of the world, carefree Maxie Barr, can dance the reeling mid night through for the next nine months and have nothing much to fear from young Steve Hamas, the Passaic. N. J., bov. who stood half a head smaller than big Art Lasky here last night and punched out a decision in 10 rounds. In the history of this grrat amphi theater there was never a 23-year-old boy who stood up and fought with such a heart as young Hamas did in this struggle with Lasky. He gav= away seven pounds and two precious inehes in reach, yet he stood up after a terrific thrashing in the third round and came back to win. though he was out on his feet at the end. The judges disagreed. Joe Agnrllo gave Hamas six rounds to four for Lasky. and Harold Barnes gave them five apiece, but Barnes voted for Lasky because of his courageous finish. Referee Billy Kavanaugh set tled the dispute by giving Harris five, Lasky four and calling one even. One Blow Deride* for Hamas. IN THE fourth round, during one of the few tame minutes of the battle, Lasky cuffed Hamas with a back-hand, pivot blow that cost him the battle. There was no reason for the punch. It did not even strike Hamas with 'any real force, but though Lasky carried the rest of the round. Kavanaugh instructed the judges at the end of the round that it should be given to Hamas. Throughout the fight Lasky missed with amazing regularity, and though I he had Hamas hanging on in the third and again at the end of the ninth and in the last, he couid not I spin that right home. The victory, though it proved noth ing except that the Garden will have trouble getting a real contender for Baer, was popular with the crowd of 12.524. No common prizefighter is young Steve Hamas. The former Penn State foot ball and basket ball star, a tiuiet lad. surprised his hearers alter the battle by admitting, "I was pretty ! lucky. I need more work if I'm to ; go any farther."

Associated Press Sports Kditor. ST. LOUIS. October 6 —The world series scoreboard today, read ing "Deans. 2: Rowe. 1," sig nalizes the extent to which the greatest set of young right-handers in base ball has taken over control of the situation. If the St. Louis Cardinals win today it. will be the great Dizzy Dean against Schoolboy Rowe, the towering Tiger ace. with the outcome of the world championship at stake, in the fifth game on Sunday at Sportsman s Park. Win or lose today, in fact. Manager Mickey Cochrane of the Tigers will have to use Rowe tomorrow rather than gamble with A1 Crowder if he hopes to come back with the boy wonder for a possible third start. This is the supposition that the Tigers will rally sufficiently to carry the issue to a seventh and deciding game. I,ook to Rowe-Dean Duel. ~ «a LL hands aboard the world scries bandwagon anticipate the pros pect of a Rowe-Dizzy Dean duel with as much relish as old-timers welcomed the battles between Christy Mathewson of the Giants and Chief Bender of the Athletics, or Three fingered Brown of the Cubs and Jack Coombs of the As. So far as speed, stamina and pitching "stuff" is con cerned. the 23-year-old Cardinal ace and the 22-year-old schoolboy are well matched. Both are cool, with plenty of confidence and courage in their make-up. Dizzy has had about twice as much major league experience as Rowe, which is another way of saying the elder Dean has just completed three full seasons in the big show as com pared to Rowe's approximate season and a half, but most base ball obser vers think it's sufficient to give J. Her man the edge. "Give him another year and Paul Dean will be better than either Dizzy or Rowe." a close student of the game rises to remark. "The younger Dean has more stuff right now and a better hop on his fast one than either of the others." Cards Are Fighting Type. IT'S always relatively easy to favor the winning team but Bob Quinn. who has covered a major share of the base ball map between St. Louis and Boston, with a stop-over now in Brooklyn, thinks the Cardinals are the standout team of the game I bpcau.se their line-up carries se many players who are fighters. "All you have to do is watch fel lows like Pepper Martin. Frank Fnsch. Joe Med wick. Jim Collins and the Deans perform to realize that they have tremendous confidence alone with their natural ability," says ! Quinn "They take no worries or fears nut there on the field with them. : They are quick to seize any opening in the opposing defense while con stantly prodding the other fellow. Thev are winning types. They make mistakes and look bad at times, of course. but It is never because of lack of assurance " The contrast is all the more marked by the fact the Tigers throughout most of the three games played so far have been tense and jittery. Only four Tigers have stood out as being free from strain or loss of confidence. They are Manager Mickey Cochrane, whose back-stopping has been of the highest order; Goose Goslin. an old warhorse who revels in the tough going. Charley Gehringer and School boy Rove. Waiter9 Winninp Battinp Title? Gets Nearly All Sivat Honors %/ By the Associated Pr^ss. NEW YORK, October fi — Paul Waner of the Pittsburgh Pirates, winning the National League batting crown for the second time in his big league oareer. captured most of the senior circuit's hitting honors for 1934. but in the final summing up the champion St. Louis Cardinals earned a lot of credit. Waner, who hit through the sea son at a .362 clip and led his nearest rival. Bill Terry of the New York Giants by 10 points, was a three-wav leader, according to the final semi official records, released today. He was high scorer with 122 runs and had the largest hit total, 217 blows. Three Cards Up. Ν THE list of other leaders were three St. Louis hitters, Joe Medwick. Jim Collins and Jack Rothrock. and the leading base stealer. Pepper Martin, who copped 23. Medwick led in triples with 18, Collins hit 35 home runs to tie Mel Ott of New York for the lead, and Rothrock, who went to bat 647 times, was the only player to make five hits a game on two occasions. Eight others did it once. Collins and Rothrock didn't miss one of the Cards' games, playing in 154. Ott and Terry did the same for New York and Gus Suhr for Pitts burgh. The batting race lay between Waner and Terry with almost no opposition. Kiki Cuyler of Chicago finished third with an unofficial average of .338. THE SPORTLIGHT Oklahoma anil Arkansas Stealing Show With Feats of Deans, Martin and Rone. BY GRANTLAND RICE ST. LOUIS, Mo.. October β.—The happy hamlet ol Holdenville, Okla.. now the leading sanctu ary of the Southwest, takes its place over the still proud village of I El Dorado, Ark., by the margin of 2 I to i. Holdenville called upon young Paul Dean to pick up where the great Dizzy left off. and 21-year-old Paul j responded by trimming Detroit's j Tigers, 4 to 1. in the third canto of this series, which still remains with the sod and the soil, far from the crowded highways of the world. The three kids from the saire and the dust of the open trails, the two Deans and Schoolboy Rowe, still dominate this show. As young Paul, sometimes known as Daffy, came running from the rifle pit at the close of the game, Dizzy was there to meet him with an old-fashioned Western handshake that included a brotherly arm thrown around the Itid's broad shoulders. The roar of the crowd, the acclaim j of fans, the headlines ol the Nation j meant little or nothing to young Paul compared to the approval and the handshake of old Diz, who is 23 on his own account. Cards Get Jump. HE Cardinals got the jump In the first man at bat. when Pepper Martin of Temple, Okla., rapped a triple to right. So far, Oklahoma leads the parade of States by a dozen kilometers in this show. So far in this series the Cardi nals have had ail the slash and dash. The Tigers have looked nothing like their Bengal breed. They have been playing defensive ball where the Cardinals have been ripping and rushing—always on the attack—a fast, keen, hardbolled out fit, out there to win a ball game. The Tigers have yet to resemble the ball club that cut its way through the American League. Only the phenom enal pitching of Schoolboy Rowe, working for the pride and honor of old El Dorado, has kept them in the fight. Other Ira ding regulars were Collins of St. Louis and Arky Vaughan of Pittsburgh. .333; Sam Leslie. Brooklyn. .332; Joe Moore. Ner York, and Ethan Allen. Philadelphia. .33'; John Moore. Cineinnati and Philadelphia, .330. ard Ott, .325. Ott Makes RerorH. DESPITE late season slumps ott led in batting in runs with 135 and with his record of two homers a game seven different times fell just short of a league record, and Terry had the high mark of 168 one base hits. On the pitching side. Dizzy Dean, the Cardinals' ace, swept practically everything as he became the first National League pitcher since 1917 to win 30 games. He lost only 7 for a .811 average, took part in 50 games, recorded 7 shutouts ind struck out 193, He had the season's longest winning streak, 10 straight. Carl Hubbell of the Giants hit one high mark with 25 complete games, one more than Der.n Van Mungo of Brooklyn, who pitched 314 innings, was the season's wild man. giving 109 walks. Silas Johnson of Cincinnati suffered 22 defeats and his teammate. Paul Derringer, ?!. Johnson won 7 games and Derringer 15. What's the Odds? BY JACK DOYLE. The odds for the remainder of the world series, based on the result of the first three games, are as follows; Entire Serie*. Against St. Louis—1 to 4. Against Detroit—3'- to 1. Fourth Game.

LOUIS, Mo., October 6.— Frankie Frisch and Mickey Cochrane, the base ball battlers. were to do some gambling to day in the fourth game of the world series between their clubs—Frisch be cause he could afford to, but Coch rane because he had to do something desperate. One up on the Tizers after a 4-to-l victory yesterday, the Cards were sit ting pretty so far as pitching was concerned, so their manager figured to use Tex Carleton, a right-hander, who did a bit of flinging during the National League campaign when the Dean boys took time out. In serious straits, the American League pennant winners were bent upon employing on the hill Eldcn Auker, a right-hander regarded littie more than a rookie until he splurced near tr.e end of the season. Throw ing Carleton m thus fourth fray. Manager Frisch will have left for «hat may prove the rrurial set-to tomor row none other than Dizzy Dean, the hero of the first game victory with three full days of rest back of him. And Dizzy needed that rest like m boat needs water. Although the closest thing to perpetual motion in a pitch ing way, the elder of the Dean boys had just about bogged down as a re sult of his strenuous efforts to get a pennsnt for the Cards. After that winning game in Detroit last Wednes day he appeared all tuckered out. Just Managed to Last. Ν TOW it comes out that he barely J managed to last that game. When it was over Dizzy had nothing left to carry him along. Re freshed by a rest, long for him, how ever, he should be in fine fettle for his come-back against the Tigers. All oi which makes it fairly safe for Frisch's gamble today. What a plight the Tigers are in when it comes to choosing a chucker! About the only slabman capable of slowing down the Cards the Detroit club seems to have is the gangling Schoolboy Roue, While a polished pitcher, as revealed by that sterling service in Thursday s struggle when he got the Tigers their lone win thus far. Rowe is no Dean in stamina He must have at least two days of rest after a mound effort to be able to come back in proper form. And though A1 Crowder. the Wash ington club cast-off. looked plenty good as he took his beating last Wed nesday in the series opener, there was not believed to be a chance of his selection as a starter today. The Gen. himself admits he needs a lot of time between starts. Not Much Arm. THE old Crowdrr flipper ain't what it used to be and Cochrane Knows that pretty well. Fred Marberry, it seems, is no go against the Cards the way they pasted him as he took up a relief role Wed nesday. And with Cochrane having virtually decided not to employ Vic Sorrel 1 in this series, the gamble with r is smack up to the harrassed manager. Cochrane might get his club some where by picking Elon Hogsett. his hJ,Vo .uCd abor,fnno Elon has done better than any Tiger flinger other than Rowe. He stopped a tough flock of Cardinals cold yesterday after Tommy Bridges had been hit "all over the place.
