Bucs Run Streak To Five,
Thrash Blues Two Games
_■— ■— i
Cubs Stop Bums, 10-8,
On McCullough’s Homer
CHICAGO, Aug. 1.—(A5)—Catcher
Clyde McCullough, long time ne
mesis of the Brooklyn Dodgers,
ended the Brooks’ longest inning
streak since 1924 today by belting
a two-run homer with two out in
the ninth to provide the Chicago
Cubs wih a 10-8 victory over the
National league pace-setters. A
crowd of 24,319 fans paid to see
the slugfest.
McCullough’s clout, which land
ed atop the ramp in leftfield, halt
ed the Dodgers’ streak at 13
games. The victory was only the
Cubs’ third in 16 meetings with
the Dodgers this season. The
Dodgers’ 1924 high was 15 straight.
Southpaw Joe Hatten, who had
defeated the Cubs eight successive
times, started for the Dodgers and
appeared on his way toward an
other triumph with a 6-3 lead go
ing into the last of the sixth.
The Cubs knocked Hatten from
the mound by scoring twice in the
sixth and after the Brooks came
back with two runs in the seventh,
the Cubs stormed back and tied
the score with a three run uprising
in their half of the seventh Jo set
the stage for McCullough’s pay
off wallop off Hugh Casey, fourth
Dodger pitcher, two frames later.

climb by thumping Clinton two
games, 8-1 and 14-3.
Dunn-Erwin handed Sanford one
of its rare defeats, 4-2, in the first
game with a two-run outburst in
the eighth inning. ^Collins led off
by reaching first on the pitcher’s
error. Denning sacrificed him to
second. McQuillen popped out to
shortstop for the second out. Jack
son walked. Balia walked, loading
the sacks, and Springfellow singled
home Collins for what turned out
to be the winning run. Hayward

Sox in the curtain raiser of a
twinbill.
Salyer and Jones slammed two
hits each to pace the Warsaw team
in batting, while no one in the
Red Springs garnered more than
one bingle. Don Carter pitched an
impressive seven-hit affair for the
Robins. He struck out three and
passed none.
Red Springs proved they are def
initely on the way up by also
smothering Warsaw in the sec
ond tilt, 12-3, behind the six-hit
twirling of Mangini and Coakley.
Larry DiOrio, a Pirate castoff,
landed himself a regular pitching
job with the Smithfield-Selma

hits for a 8-2 win last night in the
first game of a twin-bill. DiOrio

LIGHT BREEZES
SLOW YACHTSMEN
CHARLESTON, S. C., Aug. 1. —
(fP)— Handicapped by a light south
erly breeze, more than 70 boats
competing in the Carolina Yacht
Club regatta today made poorer
time than in Thursday's opening
event but at the same time many
A*
tight finishes resulted.
In the featured National One De
sign class which is competing for
the Southeastern championship,
Bruce Prentiss slipped his Me Too
over the finish line just ahead of
Louis Dawson’s Surprise. Dawson
is defending champion. Tommy
Bennett's Command Performance
4th, J. B. Alexander’s Miss Con
duct. and Rudy Rustin’s Yemassee
finished in that order a short time
after Dawson. The third, fourth,
and fifth place boys were less than
three seconds apart.
Alexander still held the lead in
points with Prentiss and Bennett
tied for second, but several fouls
were reported and before tomor
row’s final event the overall stand
ings may be changed pending a
judge's decision.
Billy Lockwood, second Thursday
in the Class B Inland Lake scow
division with the Wing It 3rd, found
the lighter breeze to his liking and
coped first place today, well ahead
of the Easy Does It, sailed by Bob
Peets for Captain George Lock
wood. Skipper George Paul’s
Zephyr 2nd which handles better
and moves much faster in a high
wind, was third today after plac
ing first Thursday and trails Lock
wood in overall standings by a
single point.
Many of the boats sailing in the
competing classes raised spinnak
ers today in the beat towards the
finish line to overhaul and edge out
others in their same class that
were not carrying the extra can
vas.
RAMBLERS PLAY
Frank Maner’s Masonboro
Ramblers will tangle with a
Camp Lejeune nine this after
noon at 3:30 in the Ramblers’
new home at Bellamy’ field. The
Masonboro manager said that
he will probably start Hunker
Benson or W. A. (Weenie)
Brown on the mound.
Haas Rockets To Lead
At St. Paul With 135
ST. PAUL, Minn., Aug. 1—(yp;—
An iron game that approached per
fection rocketed Fred Hass, Jr.,
New Orleans, unattached profes
sional, to a six-under-par 66 and
a 36-hole total of 135 in the St.
Paul Open Golf tournament today.
Haas' 66 put him in the lead of
a brigade of professionals and
amateurs that made something
of a mockery of par 72 for the 6,
432 yard Keller Municipal course.
Lack of rain recently has dried
out the fairways and greens, re
sulting in plenty of roll on the
balls.
Pushing Haas for the lead were
Lew Worsham, Pittsburgh, Pa., and
Jim Ferrier of Chicago. The two
professionals, who carded 69s in
the first round, came in with 67s
today for 36 hole totals of 136. Just
one stroke behind them was Glenn
Teal, Jacksonville. Fla,, pro who
had a 69 today to go with his 68
of yesterday for 137.
Another five-under-par 67 was
turned in by John Barnum, Chicago
amateur. Barnum had a 71 yes
terday, giving him 138.
leJdtifUr!0\0f Pontiac- Mich., who
* V u J°Und of Play with
a 67, slipped to par figures of 72
today for 139.
Haas got off to a poor staxt in
on the ,-Td’ going one over pa
on the first and third holes when
has wood shots landed In bunkers
'He counted birdies on the fourth’
fifth, seventh and eighth holes to
make the turn two under regula
tion figures with a 34.
On the incoming nine, the form
er National Intercollegiate cham
pion and winner in 1943 of the
Memphis Open, dropped in oirdies
on the 12th. 13th, 17th, and 18th
holes to give him a 32, four under
par, and his 66.
The tall rangy insurance broker’s
iron game put him on most of the
greens in position to hole out with
one putt. Haas, the son of Avell
known professional in the New
Orleans area, is among the top 15
money winners in the professional
golfers’ summer tour.
As a result of the day’s scoring,
in which 17 players matched par
of 72 and 24 others bettered it, a
score -of 150 or lower was needed to
qualify for the final two rounds of
18 holes each on Saturday and
Sunday.
Fifteen amateurs and 45 profes
sionals qualified for the final
rounds.

Pirates Meet Sanford Spinners
In Stadium Tonight
CLINTON, Aug. 1—Wilmington’s rejuvenated p
took a sweep of a three-game,.series and their fifth v;. ■
in a row here tonight, smashing the Clinton Blues in?'5
ends of a doubleheader, 8-1 and 14-3. Roy Lamb and p!
Townsend chalked up wins for the Pirates. Townse d
the Blues to two hits in the nightcap. "1 a ^
The Pirates will carry the battle
to Sanford’s pace-setters in Legion
stadium at Wilmington tomorrow
night, with Lefty Louis Cheshire
slated to pitch.
With Billy Benton smashing out
two home runs and Bob Steckel
and Hargrove Davis hit one apiece
in the two encounters, Corsair Pow
er, long dormant the rest of the
season, suddenly made itself felt
with a vengance.
Benton smacked his second hom
er in the fifth inning of the second
game with the sacks loaded down.
Homers by Benton a--d Steckel
helped to sew up the first game
in a four-run fourth inning. Ben
ton first up, drove one over the
right field wall. Davis singled to
left center, and he took second on
a passed ball. Harry Bridges dou
bled Davis home, and then Steckel
hit his second homer of the season
over the 385-foot left field fence.
Benton’s four-master was his sixth
of the year.
Johnny Muscovitch roamed the
center field pastures in the first
game. He doubled once in four
times at bat, and scored after his
two-bagger in the seventh on Bill
Alsnauer’s fly after moving to
third on an infield out.
Davis’ clout, with Benton com
ing ahead of him, came in the
sixth. Benton had previously dou
bled home Roy Lamb, who had
reached first on an error.
During the initial contest, which
went the full nine innings, Lamb
fanned five and walked an equal
number for his 11th wi of the year.
Ed Kukulka, Clinton third base
man, was toughest cn Lamb. His
two of the Blues’ seven hits were
a double and a triple.
The Bucs nicked loser Billy Ed
wards for 10 hits, seven of which
were for extra bases. Davis, with
a double, a single and a homer,
and Benton with a homer and a
double, were the only Pirates get
ting more than one hit.
Chinton’s only tally came in the
last of the fourth when firstba'se
man O’Shields singled home
Marsh, who had reached first on
Musumeci’s error and taken sec
ond on an infield out.
Bouncing Severn Wright out of
the game in the second inning of
the nightcap, the Bucs lashed out
with 12 hits to cop their fifth
straight. They scored three runs
in the first on a walk to Musumeci,
a single by Benton, Davis’ double
that scored the pair, and a single
by Bridges to tally Davis.
The other big Pirate frame was
the fifth, when Benton socked his
second circuit clout with Town
