16 The Berk«hire Evening Eagle, Friday, Aug. 5, 1949 Masuga Hurls to 14th Victory as Hasson Fields Brilliantly, Belts Homer, Two Singles Quebec Protests Game When Balk 1s Catted for Catcher Stepping Out of Box--Braves Here Again Tonight By JOHN M. FLYNN Sports Editor of The Eagle John Masuga, Indians' mound ace, pitched superbly and received sensational support as Pittsfield defeated the league-leading Quebec Braves 4-2 at Wahconah' Park last night. It was Johnny's 14th win against six losses and he held the visitors to five singles, although snappy fielding kept down the Braves' total of safe blows. Hasten Makes Five Assists Manager Gene Hasson had a ter- nhe night. Be hit a 340-foot homer over the right field fence, his 14th | third c i r c u i t clout of the season, and two 1 W i t h fact made known over the public address system. Huwer scored on the balk and Hutson moved to Three Rivers, Indians Tied For Fourth Pittsfield and Three Rivers are tied for fourth place in the Canadian-American Canadian-American League as the Royals beat Gloversville 3-2 while Pittsfield was winning 4-2 over Quebec here last night.

Despite Despite that grand work at the plate Gene's performance aiound first ba=e was even more spectacular. He had five assists and six putouts, several of his plays be.r.g gems. lAst season Gene made 'our ass sts in one contest, which was the best done in the circuit during the campaign. campaign. His five assists in last night's tilt may be a Canadian-American League record for a first baseman but the Orange Book does not lUt th» mark for assists in a single gam« although it does give the record total for a season. The major major league record for assists by a first baseman is seven. Manager Frank McCormick of the Braves played the game under pretest after a balk had been called on Alex Danelishen in the fifth inning,, inning,, enabling the Indians to get their second run of the frame and third of the contest. With one away in that inning, Bill Moore singled to center. Johnny Cestro forced h i m - ' a t second. Chuck Huwer singKjJ on the ground past Moose SHetter, Castro getting to third. Bijd',.-|Jutson doubled past Shelter, scoriflg Castro and putting Huwer on third. With Manager Hasson at bat the Braves' pilot ordered Gen" Riven an intentional pass. Gus Gal'.- peau stepped outside his catcher's box before the first pitch to Hasion had been delivered. Daneliohen .-.erved the pitch, a wide one and it w a s ball one. The umpire called a balk on the pitcher because Galipeau Galipeau had stepped out o f - h i s box befoie the ball left the pitcher's hand. This is a rule which was in effect for years, was taken out for some seasons and was restored to the regulations of the game this year. The umpire was absolutely right but Manager McCormick a f t - er a long argument asked to havo it announced that he was playing under protest. The umpire had that ' It's back! RUPPERT NEW YORK'S MOST FAMOUS BEER Try it today for that only one man on base it was decided then to pitch to Hasson and Gene lined a single to right, scoring Hutson. Staton's single to center put Hasson on second but Bob Hunter struck out. The fact that Galipeau had not peid too much attention to developing developing a method of having an intentional intentional pass issued in accordance with the rules was apparent in the eighth inning when after Staton had singled to center and had gone to second on Hunter's sacrifice Manager McCprmick ordered an intentional pass given to Prentice Gus had quite a job wait.ng for the pitch to be made and then moving out to get the ball. That strategy worked as Masuga grounded out and Moore flied to center. Wilder To Pitch Tonight Quebec will be here again tonight tonight at 8 for a single contest.
