BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 1046 Defeat Senators In 9th Hitting In Victory For McCarthy's Club TODAY'S 8POBT PARADE All-America Pro Grid League Asks Rival Loop For 'Truce' j*Y COKNELIUS RYAN « Spurts Writer WEW YORK, April 20. (UP) — l*»na«tr jo* McCarthy of the New York Yankees was In the position t«*«y of & man who has 10 pounds at butter at home and knows where he can buy another 10 pounds. . He has'four of the best-hitting outfielders in baseball, and the rales My only.three men can play at »• time. -He jUrted the season with Clinv- Iry Keller in left field, Joe DiMag- tlo in" 1 center Held mid Tom Henrich in right field. When Keller, *ho ' Is muscular enough to be nicknamed "Kinc Kone" and hits with enough vehemence lo keep opposing teams from thinking tlic title is funny, pulled a leg muscle, McCarthy sent Johnny Undell, only t few days out' of the Army, into left field. Undell, who was converted from * pitcher to an outfielder because his hitting was much better than his hurling, batted in three runs •gainst Philadelphia Thursday with •« homer and double, and repeated that tally yesterday as the Yanks edged Washington with a ninth- Inning rally, 1 to 6. Undell got a two-run homer In the second Inning, driving In Joe DIMagRlo, who had doubled. In true Yankee tradition, the New Yorkers went on to make it a big inning as Nick Etten sintclcd, Mil Dickey doubled and Ossii} Grimes singled. Four runs scored. In all. Undaunted by this display of real- for-sure pre-war Yankee stuff, the Senators chipped rr.vny with n run here and n coxipln ol runs there, «nd New York, under tlie unhappy eyes of a record opening-day crowd of. 54,826 paid, came up to the " ninth inning trailing by 0 to 5. John Nijjgeling gfl one man out • nd then got nervous. He walked George Stirnweiss and hit Tom Henrlch with a pitch, bringing up Dimaggio. DIMaggio doubled and \hat broupht up LIndell. The big outfielder 'drove a uy ball deep Into center field and tlic winning run scored easily after the catch. 1 That gave Lindcll three more runs totted i". , Keller's leg reportedly Is healed, liut "King Kong" can't nniscle his w»y back into the lineup. The Yank-Senator game was the only one played yesterday us most tMtns postponed games because of Oood YTiday observance. In American-League home openers scheduled for today. Cleveland Is host 'to Detroit, St. Louis to Clii- c*eo and Boston is host to Philadelphia. In the National League. New York is at Brooklyn.

The power behind the All-America throne, n reliable Informant ro- ,'eals, recently approached Conmm- sloncr Best 'nell of the National and nsk'ed for a financial truce. Tlie A-A representative wanted the two engues to agree to respect player contracts and consent to a joint draft meeting.
