White Sox rolled to their fifth
straight win in College Station
Little League action last night as
they shutout Black’s Pharmacy
Senators 3-0. In the second game
of the double-header, the Student
Co-op Orioles remained within
striking distance of the loop lead
ers with an 11-3 win over Veterans
of Foi-eign Wars Red Sox.
The first game was played under
protest by the Senators’ manager,
Milton Williams, and will be
brought before the league’s pro
test board. The protest was claim
ed in the top half of the third
frame after a heated argument.
The Senators got their first, and
only, two hits of the fray in the
bottom half of the second inning.
Johnny Williams singled to right
Sox collected their first two hits
and runs of the battle off Senator
pitcher Joe Olian. With Don Musa
on second base and one out, Harold
Cooner doubled to right-center field
to drive home the first tally. After
the next batter struck out, Danny
Feldman singled to center field and
with that blow came the fireworks.
Cooner scored on the play, but the
Senatoi-s claimed that he ran out
of the base path to avoid the tag
at home plate.
After things finally settled down,
Burke pitched no-hit, no-run ball
the rest of the game and the White
Sox added another run in the fifth
inning. With one out John Stark
singled to right field, but he was
forced at second on Feldman’s
grounder. Feldman stole second and
third and came home when the
throw got past the third baseman.
Burke’s slow stuff failed to
strike out a single Senator batter,
field, moved to second on a wild I but he issued only two bases on
pitch and advanced to thii’d base on
Harry Lewis’ infield hit. White Sox
hurler Ozzie Burke retired the side
without a run crossing the plate
to work out of his most senous
jam of the game.
In the third inning, the White
307 N. Mv’ui
balls and a similar number of base
hits. The win was his second of the
year against no defeats.
Olian, in being tagged with his
second defeat of the season, gave
up four safeties, walked only three,
and struck out eleven.
In the second fracas of the night,
the Orioles did all their scoring in
the first four innings.
They tallied four times in the
opening fi’ame on four base hits.
Larry Randolph’s double followed
consecutive singles by Jackie Ross
and Les Palmer and sent the first
two runs scampering across the
plate. Bill Berry then blasted his
second homer of the year over the
center field fence to cap the scor
ing for the inning.
The Red Sox came back with two
runs in their half of the inning.
With one out, Eldon Hagler singled
and Charles Gandy doubled him to
third base. Hagler scored on Ricky
Howard’s infield grounder and
Gandy tallied when the throw got
past the catcher.
The Orioles scored twice in the
second inning on two walks and
singles by John Beckham and
They sent one inn home in the
third inning with only one base
knock-a one-base blow by Paul
Mamaliga—and two costly errors.
Four runs in the Jourth frame
upped the Orioles lead to 11-2. Just
one hit, Randolph’s second straight
double, was included in the up
Furman Isbell relieved Oriole
pitcher Jackie Ross in the sixth
inning (since Ross had already
pitched his maximum six innings
this week) and the Red Sox touch
ed him for one run. Jack Fugate
doubled to open the frame. The
next two batters failed to advance
him, but the following two walked
to load the bases. Thomas Taylor
singled to right field to score Fu
gate, but Billy Mitchell was nipped
at the plate to end the inning and
While raising his record to 2-1,
Ross doled out three of the losers’
five hits and walked four. He fan
ned two batters.
Red Sox starter Taylor gave up
seven runs, seven hits, walked four
and whiffed two Orioles. Relief
pitcher Dennis Ruth surrendered
four inns, only one hit, walked
none and struck out three.
Tomorrow night, the Orioles
meet the White Sox in the first
game of the twin-bill. The Senators
battle the Red Sox.
