Two of the American League's leading batters were injured during the week

Heavy hitting of Orioles' Bob Nieman (right) and Tigers' Harvey Kuenn has been among the bright spots for Baltimore and Detroit this season. Two years ago both batted well above .300, then slumped to the .270s in 1957. Last week Nieman was leading the league and Kuenn hitting .341 when both were sidelined with injuries.
