Jimmy Piersall, Boston Red Sox centerfielder, seen July 20, 1958, has spent more time on the bench in Boston, the past three weeks than playing. However, yesterday he interrupted his sun bath on the edge of the dugout to pinch hit against the Detroit Tigers in the twelfth inning and scored when Ted Williams hit his homer in the same inning to beat the Tigers 7 to 6.
