Monday, April 11, 1M9 Manifold (Ohio) N*ws-Io«i*«l PAGE Feller and Paige Blank Farm Club With 4 Hits Bearden Will Test Ailing Right Leg TEXARKANA, Tex. -- (INS) -- Gene Bearden, hero of the 1948 world series, was to test his ailing right leg today when he takes the mound for the Cleveland Indians against the New York Giants at Texarkana, Tex. . Bearden, who was to s.ee action for the first time in two weeks, pulled a muscle in his leg in an exhibition game. He probably will pitch four or* five innings. Sam Zoldak was ·lated to relieve him. The Indians' spring: series with the Giants ends next Sunday in the Polo Grounds at Mew York. The Tribe holds a 5-4 advantage with seven more exhibitions to go. ' With the spring season about to end and the regular session only a week off, the Indians' pitching is beginning to round into shape. Bob Feller and Satchel Paige looked superb yesterday as they combined their efforts to shutout the Oklahoma City nine, 3-0. on four hits. Satch worked the first five frames, giving up two hits. He walked none and pitched to only 16 batters. Feller fin-- ished the .game and likewise issued two bingles and gave up no walks. INTO TOP SHAPE Mike Garcia and Early Wynn also seem to be in top shape, in view of their mound stints Saturday when the Tribe blasted the Oklahoma club, 13-2. The Redskins'; batsmen, meanwhile, were collecting 10 hits-'off two Oklahoma pitchers. Manager Lou Boudreau, Bob Kennedy and Jim Hegan each had two hits.' Hegan's pair of» hits gave him 14 for 36 times at bat this spring for an average of .389. OF Satchmo retired the first 10 batters to face him before his string was broken with a scratch infield single. He rarely threw his fast baU, but Itad the Texas leaguers popping up his slow stuff or driving hi* curves into the ground. It was learned yesterday that Herman Reich, first baseman, suffered a broken nose when a grounder took a bad hop and struck him in the face Friday at Shreveport, La. Although · his nose was swollen, he playecLthe entire game. - * ^ Garver Is Choice . * . DALLAS, Tex. -- (J) -- Ned Garver,' young Ohio right hand- er, is becoming a strong favorite to pitch the St. Louis Browns' opening game April 19 against the World Champion Cleveland 'Indians. His latest exhibition performance 'was a three - hit job against D a l l a s yesterday. Garver, of New, Ohio, fanned nine and would have,had a shutout except for an error by Bob Dillinger. The. Browns won the game 2 to 1. * Shatter Records . . . ASHEVILLE, N. C. -- tf) -Jackie Robinson and the Brooklyn Dodgers moved into the Carolinas today after shattering all attendance records in Georgia. The Dodgers three - game series with the Atlanta Crackers of the southern association drew 49,309 fans. A record turnout of 25,221 witnessed yesterday's encounter, which Atlanta won, 8-4. _Robinson, playing despite threats of intervention by the Ku-Klux-Klan, lashed out four hits in 12 times at bat in the series which Atlanta won two games to one. * Not Fair Test . . . DALLAS, Tex. -- UB -- Johnny Lindell, the New York Yankees' frustrated outfielder, says his pitching trial at St. Petersburg, Fla., wasn't a fair test. Lindell, earnestly seeking to become a hurler, said few players took Ms efforts seriously. He declared he would like another crack at serving up his "knuckle ball." Lindell originally came to the Yankees as a pitcher in 1942, but Joe McCarthy, then New York's manager, converted the lanky Californian into an outfielder. The Yanks lost to Greenville, Tex., of the big state league, 4-3, yesterday. * Best Httl Staff . . . CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -(UP) -- Prior to the spring training season, Manager Connie Mack of the Philadelphia Athletics said he had the best pitching staff in the-American league and today there was mounting evidence that he is right. Lefty Lou Brissie was the latest member of the Athletics' pitching staff to turn in a standout performance when he limited the Memphis Chicks to five hits at Memphis, Tenn., yesterday and led his team to a 5 to 1 victory, Taft Wright and Joe Astroth each homered for the Mackmen. * Home Run Threat . . , MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- (UP) -The Detroit Tigers were developing a brand, new home run threat today in third baseman George Kell, already regarded one of the finest hitters in the American League.

Cleveland-Central and Charlestown, W. Va., Boyd have cpme into the junior high division while Donora, Pa., is the first high school entry. Charlestown is the first West Virginia entry in many years and it wants to compete in the high school division. The Boyd coach feels his team is top tough for junior high competition. However, Harry Mehock, meet director, said this morning that Charlestown would have to run only in the junior high relay.

The Reds wound up in a 3 to 3 tie with Mobile yesterday after 11 innings of play but again here was a woeful lack of hitting. . , \ Cincinnati had won the first two games with Mobile with a minimum of hitting and yesterday the boys were able to gather only seven hits. Three of those wallops, coming in the first two-innings, gave the Reds their runs. The Cincinnati pitching continued to hold up as Herman Wehmeier, Ken Burkhart and Harry Perkowski allowed only six hits but that was partly offset by the fact they gave up 11 walks and there was one hit batsman. Wehmeier's performance continued j,o bother manager Bucky Walters a bit. The young hurler gave up only three hits in six innings but he walked eight.
