Page 4 College Station, Texas Tuesday, April 26, 1960 THE BATTALION Farmers Tie, Drop Game to TCU Frogs The Texas Christian Horned Frogs shelled two Aggie pitchers for 14 hits and an 11-5 Southwest Conference baseball victory on Kyle Field Saturday after the two teams fought to a 9-9 deadlock in a Friday contest. The first game was called be cause of darkness and will not be replayed because it has no bearing on the championship. The Aggies jumped off to an 8-2 lead after four innings of play but the Frogs pecked away and finally tied it up in the 9th on Jimmy Walker’s two-run homer to left. - i Each team used three pitchers with David Pitcock working the final four for A&M and giving up the tying runs. Charles Ruther ford pitched shutout ball for three innings at the finish. Homers Plentiful Byron Barber and Dink Patter son each homered for the Aggies but Walker’s blow was the big one that kept TCU from getting beat. A&M almost won it in the bot tom of the 9th after Rutherford walked two batters with two out. Pitcock then hit a shot toward the hole between first and second that Golfers Defeat TCU Frogs To Hold Conference Lead A&M defeated TCU, 4’A to V/ 2 in Southwest Conference golf here Saturday to remain atop the con ference standing.

Carroll from second but the ball hit baserunner Randy Wortham on the arm for the automatic third out. In the second game the Frogs jumped on starter Olen Jordan for seven runs on nine hits in the first three innings and the Aggies were too far back to catch up even though Aggie outfielder Barber hit two homeruns, his fourth and fifth of the season in conference play. Frog Relief Made Difference Fine relief work for the final five innings by Rutherford con tributed to the TCU win and gave the big righthander the victory. Darrel Read worked the first four innings for the winners. Dick Hickerson, sometime first- sacker for the Aggies, came on in relief of Jordan in the third but had faulty fielding behind him. He gave up five more hits and four runs but only one of them was earned. Shortstop George Banda paced TCU with four hits in four trips while three other Froggies had two hits each. Cliff Justice hit a two-run homer for TCU in the fourth. Johnson, A&M, 2 and 1. Points Matches Poa. Pts. Won Lost Pet.
