B I S B E E IS FOR TUCSON HIGH A place in the state baseball tournament, which will month on the-Universit,.« ATM this defeat the Bisbee Pumas. The Pumas come to ,town wea- resday. with plenty of power hidden hidden to their sticks. When last the two teams met, Tucson was easily the victor by a score of 9-1. But this win was mainly due to tn« wlldness of pitcher John Graham, while his relief man, Howard Me- Keen. pitched steady, one-hit ball for three Innings. Tucson, which has won three Southern conference games season (two wins from DC and one from Bisbee), needs but one more triumph to assure themselves themselves a spot in the tournament. And if past performances are any indication, the Badgers should be able to take care of the Pumas without without too much trouble. The Badgers displayed their bitting power with extra base Wows last Saturday as they took the measure of the Douglas Bulldogs, Bulldogs, 7-3, on the local field. Tuc- ·on was held to eight hits by the classy Amado Gutierrez, Donglas mounrtsman, but three of them ·went for extra mileage on the baselines and that was enough to make the difference. Douglas garnered nine hits from the maestro of the Badger coterie, Joe Valenzuela, but "Val" kept them well scattered and did not have too much trouble. Valenzuela, Incidentally, smacked out a triple and a single-in four appearances at the plate. He also was batting fifth in the lineup Instead of the traditional ninth reserved for twlrlers. George Bland, flashy second baseman, and Corky Moore also contributed to the attack. Bland had a double and a single In three times -at bat to his credit, while Moore, playing In right field and also number two pitcher for the locals, annexed a ringing triple In three trips to the plate.
