by a batted"ball. The blow was so hard that it crushed a part of the elbcw and probably injured a nerve. Lefty Thomas started the game ngaimt 'Amarillo and pitched nice ball until relieved by Stewart, who finished. Jake Leggitt was behind the bat. Smokey Harris was buffeted around for seven innings, then Joe McKnight took the mound for the Lions. He was also greeted with the same medicine. Ammcns was behind the bat. PAMPANS DEFEAT CLUB FROM AMARILLO 13 TO 7 The Danciger Roadrunners won a 13 to 7 game from the Texas Theater Lions of Amarillo yesterday afternoon in the Borger tournament afternoon in the Borger toiuinament but a loss was suffered that marred the game. Johnson, one of the leading pitchers on the Pampa staff, was hit on the arm during batting practice and physicians said he would be unable to pitch any more' this season and maybe never again. Johnson was pitching to Amarillo batters during batting practice when he was struck on the elbow Whitey Vaughn, Danciger right fielder, continued his attack on tournament batting honors with two doubles and a single. Vaughn led the batters in the Amarillo tournament and is after the record in the Borger event. The Roadrunners will meet Bor- gsr-Alamo "06" team under the lights at 8 o'clock tonight. The Fampans were sure that they would i net get Borger in the daytime and have been remaining in Borger to try and get used to the lights which have handicapped them in their two previous games with Borger. Lefty George Bulla will start the game against Borger tonight Manager Ike Lister announced this morning. Lefty Blair will be kept in reserve for the W'ilcox Oilers of Oklahoma City, the team the Roadrunners will probably draw tomorrow.
