f AG! SIX HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Major League Batters Have a Field Day By JUDSON BAILEY Associated Press Sports Writer Somebody must have sneaked a supply of the original batata (pronounced baloney by the players) balls into the major league park, under cover of darkness last night. ""There were two games played in the daylight yesterday and in one the Pittsburgh Pirates punished the Brooklyn Dodgers 17-4. The two teams made a total ol 28 hits. In the other the New York Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 4-2 and there were 22 hits. ' But after the sun had set, look what happened. Cincinnati nosed out the Phillies 1-0 and Washington whipped the St. Louis Browns by the same score. There wasn't a swat in either game longer than a single and the four teams together made a total of only 19 hits. Another flood-lighted affair was an 11 - inning scramble at St. Louis with the Boston Braves beating the Cardinals 4-3 and even though it included a couple of Cardinal home runs, it also was a pitching party. Lou Klein and Walker Cooper hit homers for two of the six hits given up by Al Javery as he counted his fourth victory against one defeat. The Braves touched ten safeties, bunched four of them with an error for three runs in the fifth and then won the game in the llth when Eddie Joost led off with a single and ultimately came home on a single by Rookie Charley Workman. This boosted the surprisin_ Braves within half a game of the * second place St. Louis Redbirds In the Iwo 1-0 games the win ninnng pitchers were the hitting pitchers. At Cincinnati Bucky Wai ters and Charley Fuchs pitched magnificently and neither team scored till two were out in the last of the ninth. Walters singled in this inning, went to second on a balk and came home on a single by Eddie Miller, the sixth hit allowed by Fuchs. Walters gave only four. At Washington the lone run of the game was counted in the sixth inning on three singles, the middle one by Dutch Leonard, who held oo tball the Browns to four one - base blows. The Senators made just five singles off John Niggeling and George Caster. The day games were a striking contrast to these duels. At Pittsburgh the Pirates scored 15 runs in the first three innings off Max Macon and Les Webber, -getting five of their runs in the second and in the third frame scoring nine times after two were out. Vince DiMaggoi hit two home runs, one of them with one on and the other with two, and his teammates added an assortment of hits. But wnat really piled up the score was a series of walks by Webber, who issued nine bases on ^alls and forced six runs across the plate. Fred Fitzsimmons took over in . the fourth and cooled off the Buc '. cancers, although they added two final runs in the eighth on a triple ' by Tommy O'Brien . At Chicago the Giants scored all four of their runs in the first three innings of Paul Derringer. The fact they were outhit 12 - 10 and could do nothing in the later innings made little difference. Oh yes, a certain mad Russian, whose name has been in the public prints so much it doesn't need repeating, made his 1043 debut and was the only Chicago player except the pitcher who failed to get a hit. •The'Old Guard SPORTS ROUNDUP •87 Hugh S.

Potato Price Change Favors the Consumer Washington, May 20 —(/!')— The OVA juggled prices on potatoes today, favoring the shopper slightly and granting farmers a higher sum in hopes ot overcoming the scarcity thai has lifted the lowly spud almost to the category ot a rare delicacy in many communities. Price Administrator Prcntiss Brown decreed a seven per cent cut in consumer prices and a 30 cents per hundred pound increase to fanners. Thus potatoes that sold for six ccnls a puond in Washington now will be 5 1-4. To accomplish this. Brown ordered markups by wholesalers held to 00 cents per hundred pounds. In some cases wholesalers had imposed two 00 - cent markups by using complicated systems, Brown said. The order was applied to the 194' crop, one official explaining that farmers who had held back their potatoes in hopes of higher prices later, now might be induced l< start shipping. Ten cents ot thei 80 - cent increase is eompensalioi for changes in the parity index OPA said, and the additional 2 cents is to increase and cncour age production. Onion prices were modified, tor wholesalers being held to a singl markup of 40 cents per 50 pounds, The saving, yet to be calculalec are lo be passed on lo the coi sumcr. o thufidoy, May 27, 1943^ by national action taken by each country separately."
