(United Press staff correspondent.)
New York, .Sept. 19. The three cor
nered pennant race in the American
league may be decided in the Tiger
Red Sox series beginning today at De
troit. In the meantime the three play strug
gle in the Nationnl league again has
grown tighter. The Phillies are now
only a gnme back of 'the Dodgers and
the Braves ore n bare game and a half
from the Phillies. With this unprece
j dented situation of a triple knot tied in
i the leadership of both big leagues the
1 closing davs of the pennaut races prom-
I ise the wildest baseball scramble in his
The world's championship Red Sox
hold a lead of only half a game over
Detroit as those two teams meet in
their final series ofthe season' this aft
ernoon. If the Red Sox can repeat their
feat at Chicago by taking a majority
of the gnmes they probably will go
home in first place by a fair margin.
On the other hand, if Detroit can pull
a majority of the series out of the
clutches of the Boston gang they will
have the call.
But while the Tigers and Red Sox
are kicking each other around, the Chi-,
cago White Sox, in third place by a
game and a half will be getting a crack
at the much booted Athletics and may
nose their way into the lead position
over both Tigers and Red Sox.
The Dope Sheet
Cleveland still is strong enough to
offer stiff opposition and it will be the
Indians who get the next crack at the
The Red Sox still have 14 panics on
their schedule, while Detroit has 10 and
the White Sox 11. If the Red Sox win
eight and lose six of their remaining
games their standing at the end of thi
season would be .578. '. If the Tigers
win six and lose four games they would
be tied for the championship. If the
White Sox" win six and lose five their
standing would be .505.
If the Tigers win every one of their
remaining 10 gnmes they would finish
the season with a percentage of .004.
If the Red Sox win their, remaining 14
gnmes their percentage would be .611.
If the Red Sox make a clean sweep of
the games with the Tigers, they would
have a percentage of .587 and Detroit
would stand at .500. That would leave
the champions with 11 games to play
and the Tigers with seven. Should
Detroit then win ever- one of those
games their percentage would be .584.
Hence, to win the pennant with the Tig
ers winning all remaining games after
the. present series, providing of course
that Chicago doesn't step in, .the Red
Sox would have to win seven games
with four losses.
Chicago, however, must not be count
ed out. The White Sox loom up right
now just as strong as any of the con
tenders. If they can take the entire
series from the Athletics they will be
ready to challenge cither Detroit or
Boston for the fiunl push to the end of
! the season. The situation is full of pos
Isibilitics and on the turn of a single
! game may rest the location of the cities
j which will stage the next world 's series.
I". The National Outlook.
Bill Carrigan'sutehing staff has not
been doing as well as it might lately.
Taken as a whole, the staff has wav
ered slightly. Poor pitching cannot
stand against the fusillade of the Tigers
which they are certain to turn loose,
even though the Jeunings hurlers are
not known as extraordinarily effective.
The Red Sox are not heavy hitters at
best with Jack Barry missing, they are
not so strong defensively as usual.
j In the National league through the
victory of the Reds in one game of a
double header with the Dodgers, Brook-
lyn reliquished half a game of their
I lead and the pace setting job in the
j Tener circuit now hangs ou a single
game. The Phillies ran take first place
1 today if they win and the Dodgers lose.
Brooklyn has 17 games left on the
.calendar, while Philadelphia must play
'19. If Brooklyn wins 10 and loses seven
J-games, the Dodgers' percentage would
be an even .tUH). To win the pennant in
ti is event, the Phillies must win 12 of
their remaining 19 games, providing the
Braves don't sneak in with a few extra
wins and steal the flag from under the
noses of both Dodgers and Phillies. The
Braves are now in third place, a game
and a half behind the Phillies.
