Have you ever noticed how
Monk Harrington, Pirate
handyman, goes after those
foul balls? . . . Well, we learned
the reason for this Monday
night. CoOwner Luby Pollock
says the Buccaneers use as
many as 18 to 20 balls for
each home game . . . and those
agates are hard to buy . . .
You would not realize that it
takes so nany balls to play a
nine inning game ... I sat
near the Pirate dugout the
other night and saw Monk
throw out 11 balls and all were
brand spanking new. How
many were returned? Only
Monk knows.

Red Springs Defeat Juniors, 9 To 0
COLEMAN ALLOWS
LOCALS ONE HIT
Rain Halts Contest In
Seventh; Third Game
At Red Springs
BY GENE WARREN
Star Sports Writer
Bill Coleman of Red Springs’
American Legion Juniors held
Wilmington to a scant one hit by
Homer Brewer yesterday after
noon, and with his teammates col
lecting six bingles behind him,
Red Springs salvaged the second
game of their series with the locals,
9 to 0. The contest was called in
the seventh inning, because of
rain.
It was Red Springs all the way,
as the visitors grabbed a one
run lead in the first stanza, when
Duncan Futrelle, Wilmington pitch
er, walked in Conoly.
That lone tally could have given
the westerners the win, but errors
by Wilmington in the fourth and
fifth frames, plus four bases on
balls, raised the count to nine,
and the Springers took it easy the
rest of the way—one boy deliberate
ly striking out at a sure wild
pitch.
Coleman struck out one, walked
four, in shutting out the locals.
The tall youngster also played his
position exceptionally well, mak
ing four putouts, one on a double
piay.
The two clubs play the third of
the five games series today in
Red Springs If Wilmington loses
Red Springs takes the Eastern
championship, and tangles with
the western winner for the North
Carolina crown.

This Afternoon; Play
Smithfield Tonight
The Wilmington Pirates dropped
back into the Tobacco State League
cellar last night as rain postponed
their game here with the Smith
field Leafs and the Dunn-Erwin
club defeated Angier-Fuquay, 13 to
5 to regain undisputed possession
of fifth place.

night when they will cross bats
with Clinton and the Blues new
manager, Van Lingle Mungo, who
was yesterday appointed to replace
Willie Duke, who has resigned to
take a full time position as scout
for the New York Giants.
Nate Andrews will more than
likely get the pitching assignment
for the Clinton contest. The form
er big leaguer has won his last
three games. The fans are still
hoping to see a mound battle be
tween Mungo and Andrews. Since
the forrher Giant has taken over
the Clinton club it is not known if
he will do any hurling in future
contests.

that' Joe Gregory, former second

was lead-off man for the Twins

Elbow Nerve Injury
To Bench Newhouser
DETROIT, July 30.— (/P) —Hal
Newhouser, the Detroit Tigers’ 20
game winner, discovered Tuesday
that a nerve injury in the elbow
of his pitching arm will keep him
out of action for about a week.
Trainer Jack Homel of the Ti
gers said the ace left-hander would
miss regular pitching turns
Wednesday against the New York
Yankees and Sunday against the
Boston Red Sox.
Homel said the injury had noth
ing to do with bone chips located
earlier this year in Newhouser’s
left elbow.
The Tiger star has won 20 games
and lost three.
