ARE WINNERS Houston Preserves Its Four Game Lead Over Galveston lily Associated Press) Pour games still separate the race setting Houston Buffaloes from the second place Galveston Buccaneers. Both emerged victorious Thursday night. The third place San An tonio Missions and the fourth place Dallas Steers dropped several ad ditional points back of the two leaders by losing. While all this was occurring in the first division, the Beaumont Exporters failed to improve their fifth place standing. They lost with the gate wide open and ready to swing them up a lew notches toward first division. Lefty Darrow spotted the Steers three* runs in the first inning and then with the aid of his Pirate mates beat them 11 to 4 for his 18th vic tory’ this season. Darrow limited Dallas to five hits while the Steers hammered John Whitehead and Sal Gliatto for 15 hits, including home runs by Gold berg, first basemen p*1'! wufft. left fielr'e’’ ii.aiceu lg a three run iea,u in ..... second and third innings. Bill Beck man held Port Worth to six hits for a 3 to 2 decision. Houston got two runs in the second when Binder tripled with two on. Gene Moore hit at home run inside the park in the third for the final Houston tally. After this, Dick Whitworth hurled airtight ball for the Cats. Beckman weakened just enough in the sixth for the Cats to score two runs bat ted in by Barrett and Warren. Pour hits and one earned run was all Vernon Kennedy, Oklahoma City righthander, would give San An tonio. Behind this splendid pitching, the Indians trounced the Missions, 4 tc 3. It was Oklahoma City’s seconu straight win under the guid ance of Luther “Red” Harvel, new manager. The Beaumont Exporters matched Tulsa in hits with 10, but they fail ed in the run department by allow ing the Oilers to win, 7 to 1. Lefty Johns, hero of the Plort Worth Cats years ago, hurled for Tulsa and proved there are still many baf fling curves in his salary wing. He allowed the Exporters a run in the eighth and that was all. Scores by innings: Houston . 021 000 000—3 9 0 Pt. Worth . 000 002 000—2 6 0 Beckman and O'Dea; Whitworth and Warren.

FULLERTON, JR* Associated Press Sports Writer The Washington Senators have drawn first blood in their important series with the New York Yankees and boosted their American league lead to two games. The Senators traveled 10 innings to gain their eighth victory in 11 mmetings with the Yanks by a 3-2 count yesterday as a pinch hit by Cliff Bolton, third string catcher, drove in the deciding run. With southpaw Walter Stewart holding the world’s champions to two hits in the first seven innings, Washington rolled up a 2-0 lead and looked as if they were about to hand the Yanks their first white washing in 304 games since Aug. 5, 1931.

Ed Reulbach of Chicago set the National league mark of pitching 44 consecutive scoreless innings in 1908. Hubbell has won his last three starts by shutouts and pitch ed 8 1-3 scoreless innings against Pittsburgh July 19 after relieving Watson Claik. He was not scored upon in the last three innings of his July 13 game against St. Louis when the streak started.
