CHICAGO:              WORLD SERIES: FINISHING LIKE TRUE CHAMPIONS THE DETROIT TIGERS SLAMMED HANK BOROWY FROM THE MOUND BEFORE HE COULD RETIRE A BATTER IN THE SEVENTH AND DECIDING GAME OF THE 1945 WORLD SERIES AT WRIGLEY FIELD WEDNESDAY AND WENT ON TO WIN FROM THE CHICAGO CUBS 9 TO 3 BEHIND HAL NEWHOUSER’S MAGNIFICENT PITCHING. NEWHOUSER, CHALKING UP HIS SECOND VICTORY OF THE RECORD BREAKING PLAYOFFS, FANNED TEN BATTERS AND BROKE AN ALL TIME WORLD SERIES MARK BY RUNNING HIS TOTAL OF STRIKEOUTS IN THE SERIES TO 22 AGAINST THE PREVIOUS BEST OF 20 HELD BY THREE OTHER FLINGERS. ALTHOUGH THE CUBS GOT TO THE TALL LEFT HANDER FOR TEN HITS—ONE MORE THAN THE TRIUMPHANT TIGERS COULD MANAGE OFF SIX ASSORTED CHICAGO THROWERS—NEWHOUSER STIFLED THEM IN THE CLUTCHES WITH HIS SHARP CURVE AND FAST BALL AND NEVER PERMITTED THEM TO GET IN THE BALL GAME. IN FIGHTING THROUGH THEIR FIRST WORLD TITLE IN TEN YEARS, THE TIGERS SUPPLIED A SAD ENDING TO BOROWY’S HEROIC EFFORTS TO PITCH THE CUBS TO WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THEIR MAIDEN VICTORY IN THE CLASSIC SINCE 1908. THE SLIM RIGHT HANDER WORKING IN HIS THIRD STRAIGHT GAME WITH ONLY A SINGLE DAY’S REST NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO STILL THE BENGAL BATS AND WAS ON HIS DISCONSOLATE WAY TO THE SHOWERS MINUTES AFTER HE THREW HIS FIRST STRIKE. SHARING HONORS WITH NEWHOUSER AND HELPING HIM CHILL THE HOPES OF OVER 41,000 FANS PACKED IN THE PARK WAS HIS BATTER MATE PAUL RICHARDS OF WAXAHACHIE TEXAS WHO DROVE ACROSS THREE RUNS WITH A MIGHTY DOUBLE IN THE CHAMPION’S BIG FIVE RUN FIRST INNING AND HAMMERED ANOTHER IN WITH A TWO BAGGER IN THE SEVENTH. EVEN THE CUBS FANS GIVE THE VETERAN A SYMPATHETIC CHEER WHEN HE WAS FORCE TO LEAVE THE GAME IN THE EIGHTH INNING AFTER A FOUL TIP BROKE THE LITTLE FINGER ON HIS RIGHT HAND. HE HAD PLAYED A GREAT WORLD SERIES FROM FIRST TO LAST. HIS SUPERB HANDLING OF THE TIGERS PITCHING STAFF POSSIBLY HAVING BEEN THE DECIDING FACTOR IN THE HARD FOUGHT BATTLE FOR FIRST MONEY. THE TIGERS WERE DOMINANT FROM THE MOMENT SKEETER WEBB, THEIR LEAD OFF MAN, DROVE A SINGLE TO RIGHT IN THE FIRST INNING UNTIL NEWHOUSER THROTTLED THE LAST CHICAGO GASP IN THE NINTH. EDDIE MAYO FOLLOWED WEBB WITH A SINGLE INTO THE SAME FIELD AND WHEN DOC CRAMER DROPPED A SINGLE INTO LEFT TO SCORE WEBB WITH NONE OUT MANAGER CHARLIE CRIMM REALIZED THAT HE HAD CALLED ON BOROWY FOR A LITTLE MORE THAN THE HUMAN FRAME WOULD STAND AND BROUGHT PAUL DERRINGER FROM THE BULLPEN. HANK GREENBERG, FIRST BATTER TO FACE DERRINGER, SACRIFICED THE RUNNERS ALONG AND THEN ROY CULLENBINE WAS PASSED PURPOSELY FILLING THE BASES. WHEN RUDY YORK POPPED TO STAN HACK IT LOOKED LIKE THE CUBS MIGHT ESCAPE SERIOUS DAMAGE BUT IT WAS NOT TO BE. JIMMY OUTLAW WORKED HIS WAY TO A WALK FORCING MAYO ACROSS AND LEAVING THE SACKS LOADED. (COPY FADED AT THIS POINT)…..CAME THROUGH WITH A TREMENDOUS CLOUT INTO THE LEFT OUTFIELD CORNER TO BRING EVERYBODY HOME. NEWHOUSE, NINTH DETROITER TO BAT, FINALLY ENDED THE SHAMBLES WITH AN INFIELD OUT BUT BY THAT TIME THE GAME WAS WRAPPED UP AND IT DIDN’T MATTER.
