Orioles. Wh He Sox Tied in LL
The Student Co-op Orioles, a
team that was expected, before the
season began, to be in first place,
and the Marion Pugh White Sox,
a team that was not figured to be
in such a lofty position, picked up
wins Wednesday to remain dead
locked for the College Station Lit
tle League lead.
The Orioles raced (and that’s
the correct word, for the game was
completed in just 51 minutes) to
a 6-2 win over the V.F.W. Red Sox
in the first battle of the twin-bill,
while the White Sox slipped by the
Black’s Pharmacy Senators 6-3 in
the second game.
Fast-baller Bill Berry went the
distance for the Orioles to pick up
the win and allowed only three
hits. He conquered his usually
faulty control by walking only one
batter, and he struck out two.
Berry g-ot stronger as the game
breezed along, as he retired the
last twelve batters in succession.
Ricky Howard pitched credit
able ball in being tagged with the
defeat; he surrendered seven hits,
fanned three, and walked two
while going the full distance.
A scoreless tie was broken in
the third inning when the Red Sox
tallied twice on singles by Tom
Taylor and Eldon Hagler, a stol
en base, and an error.
The Orioles bounced back with
three runs thanks chiefly to doub
les by Les Palmer and Larry Ran
dolph and a single by George Out
law. They put the game “on ice”
with another trio of runs in the
fourth frame. Doubles by Furman
Isbell and Randolph, and Palmer’s
single were the blows that did the
Randolph’s sizzling bat cracked
out 3-for-3, a trio of doubles, to
pace the game’s hitters. Team
mate Palmer got 2-for-3. Getting
one hit apiece were two Orioles—
Outlaw and Isbell—and three Red
Sox — Taylor, Hagler, and Jack
In the second game of the night,
Bill Bates’ White Sox took advant
age of some “charity” to take an
early 5-0 lead. Five walks and Oz-
zie Burke’s single pushed three
runs across the plate in the first
frame. Two more walks and a
pair of hits shoved two runs across
the dish in the second inning - .
Danny Feldman personally ac
counted for the winners’ sixth tally
with a solo homer in the fifth in
ning, the league’s initial home run
of the year*
The Senators managed two runs
in the third inning, with Joe 01-
ian’s single and Larry Lewis’ wind-
blow double being the big blows.
They scoi’ed once in the fourth in
ning due mainly to Harry Lewis’
two-base hit.
John Stark hurled steady ball
for the White Sox to pick up the
win. He gave up five well-spaced
hits, walked three, and struck out
J. W. Parsons started for the
Senators but was “derricked” in
the second inning after walking
seven, fanning one, and doling out
two hits. Jody Rush turned in a
fine relief job, as he gave up only
two safeties, walked none, and
sti'uck out seven.
Olian led the Senator’s witft 1-
for-1, while Feldman had a similar
mark for the White Sox. Others
getting one hit were L. Lewis, H.
Lews, Johnny Williams, Jimbo Car-
