X-RAY

The Yanks are American League champs but two pitchers haven't heard the news
September 28, 1958

A Yankee-Tamer who ranks with Stonewall Jackson is the sturdy Alabaman, Frank Lary of the Tigers. Last week he accomplished something no other pitcher has done in 42 years—beat the Yankees for seventh time in one season. The same week 35-year-old Hoyt Wilhelm of the Orioles threw a no-hitter at the champs.
