The White Sox were led by the clutch performance of Bob Kennedy and by the outstanding hitting of star third baseman “Luscious” Luke Appling. The Indians were guided to defeat by the questionable managing of player/manager Lou Boudreau, who was booed mightily for decisions made late in the ballgame.
