Indians Even Series Count
With 4-1 Win Over Braves
—Bob Lemon squared the world
series for Cleveland yesterday by
setting down the Boston Braves
with eight hits for a 4-1 victory in
the second game of the best of
seven classic before 39,633.
Manager Lou Boudreau, who
went hitless in Johnny Sain’s open
ing victory, led the Indians with
a sparkling day afield and at bat.
His double started a two-run
splurge in the fourth and he drove
home the third run off southpaw
Mrs. Wickam
Attends Meet
Golda P. Wickham, University
director of women’s affairs, will

Jr. Advisers Meet
A meeting of the junior advisers
of the YWCA has been called for

Warren Spahn in the fifth. He
started one double play, was in the
middle of another, made a fine
catch of a pop fly in short center
and picked a man off second.
Lemon, accomplishing what his
more famous pitching mate, Bobby
Feller, failed to do, came through
with a series win in his first start
because the Indians were able to
handle Spahn. Lemon, a 20-game
winner in the regular season,
struck out five men and walked
The converted infielder who
failed the Indians twice in the
final weeks of the season, missed
tying the series record for chances
by a pitcher. He handled 10 chanc
es—3 putouts and 7 assists—one
less than Nick Altrock did for the
Chicago White Sox back in 1906.
Time after time the hustling
braves nudged Lemon into a cor

whole skin after allowing a first
inning run.

Then Earl Torgeson and Bob El

gles to drive home the run.
The Indians got after Spahn, the
No. 2 man of Billy Southworth’s
staff, in a two-run fourth, that
turned out to be enough to hand
the Braves their first world series
defeat. Only once before had they
been in a classic, back in 1914
when they won four straight.
Boudreau opened the fourth with
a two-bagger to the right field cor

don’s single to center.
Gordon, who had taken second
on the futile throw trying to catch
Boudreau at the plate, scored when
Larry Doby, the fleet Negro cen
terfielder of the Cleveland club,
grounded a single to right field.
In the fifth, Dale Mitchell
banged out a leadoff single to left.
After Allie Clark sacrificed him
to second, Boudreau, the boss, sin

That was the blow that ruined
Spahn, who was replaced by Red
Barrett, the portly relief artist.
Red escaped without scoring but
the jlndians added another in the
ninth off Nelson Potter.
The third Braves error of the
day, a boot by shortstop Alvin

start the ninth. Jim moved to third
