The Chicks overcame a four-run rally to take last night's game in Memphis, 1 to G. For five innings Jim'Henry'of the Chicks and OlcU Bass of the Lookouts hurled scoreless ball but In the sixth Chat In- nooga tell on Henry for four runs after a misjudged fly doused him iierrily from 12 to 12. I'll take it bnck—Hngen did have i little pmclice before he shot his 59. Alone, lie slipped off behind si barn near Ihc course and hit a few shots.

Mel Hai'der's walk to Hcnrich proved disastrous in the fourth. He raced to third on Di- Maeijio's single, then scored on Dickey's infield out. The Qlants, with llieir patch-work Infield, scored their seventh straight by downing the humpty-dumpty Cubs, 7-4. Demaree, ex-Cub, drove in the winning run. Brooklyn teed oft with 10 liils to beat the Cardinals, 8-3. Goody Rosen and Gene Moore each hit "3 for 3." Deb !arins' double and dininiy Cooney's single enabled the Boston Bees to nose out the Pirnles, B-5, in 11 Innings. The llght-hllting Bees ran riot lo slub Jim Tobln for 11 hits. The only Western club lo win was Cincinnati. The Reds beat Philadelphia 4-1 before a night game crowd of 26,010 at Crosley Field. Bucky Walters limited the Phils lo five hlU for Ills ninth victory. It sent the Reds' lead lo six games over the St. Louis Cards, Hugh Mulcnny allowed the Reds only seven safeties, hut he lacked support. yesterday's hero—Lefty Gomez, Yankee ssuthpaw, who let the Indiana down with four hits, scoring a 1-0 shutout for his fifth vlclory. The tremendous popularity Hngen, nflcr all these years, In hot water. The Chicks came right tack with n three-run rally, featuring Ox Eckhardl's triple with two OH, and sewed up the game with four tal lies in Ihe next Inning. Relief Pitcher Carl Doyle won his own game with n single that knocked in two males. Two Lookout runs In the elghlli caused Doyle's hasty removal but Frank Veverka filled the bread and saved the game. The Atlanta Crackers moved back into third place by defeating the Little Rock Travelers, 6 to 4, while Knoxville was dropping a double-header to Birmingham. The Crackers won out In the 10th Inning al Little Hock with two runs that broke o four-ball deadlock." The actual winning run was scored by the fleet outfielder, Johnny Rucker, who came all the way across from first on a single by Manager Paul Richards of the Crackers. The usually feeble-hitting Barons donned clouting clothes lo ring , up 13 hits and an 8 to -I victory I ove.rthe Smokies in Ihe first game at Birmingham. Pilchcr Honvy I Johnson was the batting star in' his own win with three hits, one a ' triple, and three runs batted In. In the nightcap, Del Wethtrcll ~ edged Oadls Swigart, 3'to'2, In a . close 'mound duel. Hobo Carson' pitched relief ball in bolh games' for the Barons and in each case protected the lead. The Kew Orleans Pelicans won the flrst game of a double-header from the Nashville Vols, 4 to o, and then dropped the second, 3 to I. .Pitching was the big factor In both, games, on the Pelican field.
