Anyway, he has been with Washington for four years prior to this season without ever winning more than seven games. He reached this nominal peak last year, when he also lost seven. In the face of this undistinguished precedent Big Alex has opened the 1943 campaign by whipping the Philadelphia Athletics three times to take his place among a select little group of hurlers who have won three games without a defeat. Carrasquel looked fast in spring training, but he was still rated as a relief pitcher when the Senators staged their inaugural with the , A's April 20. He worked the last five innings of that affair, allowed but two hits, and received credit lor the victory. Five days later he was chosen to start against the A's at Philadelphia and proceeded to Men,Women!01d?

The New York Yankees remained on top the A. L. by nosing out the Boston Red Sox 4-3 again in the ninth inning with the help of a balk by Rookie Pitcher Anton Karl who got excited when the Yanks loaded the bases and threw a pitch without having his feet on the rubber. The second place Cleveland Indians divided a doublehcader with the Chicago White Sox. They won the first game 2-1 but dropped the nightcap 5-2 when Dick Culler, Sox rookie third baseman, singled two runs across in the lltrT inning, wally Moses also stole home to add insult to injury.

The Brooklyn Dodgers plowed the Philadelphia Phillies back into the National League cellar with an 18-6 drubbing on the strength of 23 hits good for a total of 30 bases. • The-St. Louis Cardinals, having to struggle every day against the tough western clubs while the Dodgers are grazing on the tender eastern turf, were set down 2-1 in 14 innings by the Chicago Clubs as what looked to be a sure double- play grounder took a bad hop over Second Baseman Jimmy Brown's head. New York's groggy Giants swept a doubleheader from the Boston Braves 5-1 and 7-3 after Manager Mel Ott had benched himsefl and Babe Barna for weak hitting. Bucky Walters pitched and batted Cincinnati to a 3-2 triumph over the Pittsburgh Pirates in a night game.
