Bums have been riding
high
and are now making a strong bid
for 3rd place. Last week, they won
4 out of 5 games ... but they are
getting a late start with only 2
games left on the schedule. The
league will continue, however, if
football practice does not hurt the
team roster too much. The Yankees
had a disastrous week while the
Reds were hot—by losing 4 out of
5 games. The Tigers took a tighter
hold on 2nd place by jumping a full
games ahead of the Reds.
