Red Sox Defeat Tigers, 9-7 j In Dreary Pitchers Parade By JACK FROST United Press Sports Writer , BOSTON, Mass., May 21.— Ted Williams pulled out of his batting slump today to drive in three runs, including a 375-foot homer, as the Boston Red Sox beat Detroit, 9-7, before a ladies day crowd of 6,977. One of Williams three hits in his four times at bat came in the third inning, when 12 members of the Red Sox went to bat on a seven-run spree. It helped boost his average to .247 from the .226 mark at which he entered the game. He had gone hitless in his last six trips. Except for Williams and Detroit home runs in the fourth by Pat Mullin, and in the seventh by Dick Kryhoski, it was a dreary parade of pitchers— on both sides. The score by innings: R H E Tigers 010 101 220—7 10 1 Red Sox 007 000 20x— 9 9 1 Trout, Bbrowy 3, Stuart 4, Bearden 7, White 7, Trucks 8, and Ginsberg;-Nixon, Parneil 8,JKihder 8, Taylor 8, and Moss. Home runs— Mullins 2, Kryhoski 2d, Williams 8th. Winning pitcher—Nixon 2-0; losing pitcher— Trout 2-3.
